Before hitting the beach, clients flock to Endless Summer Tanning Centers to bestow golden hues onto their limbs or help their efforts to shed a few pounds. The boutiques' high-end tanning equipment lends comely color to skin, distributing rays throughout the whole body or solely on the legs to match gams with tan faces for more convincing sawing-a-body-in-half magic tricks. Customers can diminish cellulite with Beauty Angel red-light therapy, which boosts collagen and the regeneration of skin cells. Staffers also aid in readying bodies for the beach with Formostar body wraps, which use infrared heat to stimulate metabolism. A single 60-minute session can blast up to 1,400 calories via the wrap's nonallergenic, silicone material.

Solymar Tan's trained technicians bronze customers with a quick, safe, and hassle-free spray solution. The FDA-approved formula reacts with amino acids in customers' outer layer of skin, instantly priming beachgoers for seven to 10 days of seaside sunbathing or posing as a coppery shark. Unlike one-size-fits-all tanning beds, spray booths, and mesh turtlenecks, Solymar Tan's melatonin mists are tailored to each client's color desires and skin type. The full process takes about 20 minutes and covers the whole body or specific areas if so desired. The solution is oil-free, alcohol-free, and fragrance-free, accommodating both hypersensitive skin and sniffers.
Hair Free Forever owner Cheryl Conway has come a long way since her early years studying and practicing at the University of Pennsylvania and Children's Hospital in Philadelphia. Her interest in electrology took her across the country to Beverly Hills, where she specialized in eyebrow design. Her expertise allowed her to analyze and execute proper corrections to achieve the perfect shape for each individual patient?a skill she continues to use in her role as an expert consultant for the California State Board of Cosmetology. This passion led her to pioneer California's first apprenticeship program for Thermolysis, or permanent hair removal. Today, she continues to educate students in the highly specialized procedure.
As a member of the American Electrology Association, Cheryl continues to free patients from the cycles of shaving or waxing with FDA-approved thermolysis treatments that are safe and effective for all types of skin and hair. High-frequency currents heat the follicles of actively growing hairs, causing them to permanently stop growing, and maintenance sessions ensure that all follicles are treated. Clients can choose to target any part of the face or body, or opt for eyebrow-shaping thermolysis treatments?one of Conway's longest-standing specialties.
