Inside CJ’s Salon, whimsical touches abound as stylists artistically highlight locks with fading ombre or bold color-block patterns. Giant stars and the scissors used to clip the Statue of Liberty’s famous coif adorn the walls, while black leather chairs cushion clients for all their styling and waxing needs. Along with haircuts for men, women, and kids, the staff brings digits up to snuff with nailcare.

Country Woods Hair Design is only a short wig fling from Honeymoon Island, and it's more than worth the swim. Modern lights hang from the ceiling like glowing wine glasses, illuminating avocado-green walls and cozy brown leather furniture. These modern accents set the tone for sleek layered cuts and confident highlights. Clients may also renovate tresses with one of the salon's invigorating deep-conditioning treatments.
What would make the owner of a successful tanning salon consider selling his business to a 20-year-old upstart? Robert Paolini may have been young, but he’d earned his bronze-colored stripes; since he was 16 years old, he’d worked long hours at the salon, and his friendly manner put customers at ease. When the sale fell through, Robert put together his own business plan, gathered investors—some of whom were former tanning clients—and opened his own salon, The Hot Spot Tanning Co.
The salon has since weathered a boom in the tanning business, and Robert attributes the company’s survival to an amicable staff, who have created an atmosphere he compares to the show Cheers. “People who tan visit the salon three to four times a week, more often than they go to the grocery store,” says Robert. “They want to go where they feel comfortable.” So in each private room, tanners can stow their gear safely on sturdy shelves, hang clothing on hooks, and refresh after sessions with deodorant, makeup remover, and hand wipes.
Warm-skinned patrons slip from high-pressure tanning booths, which coax out melanin with lights designed to avert burns and lend credence to claims that one is a model in a water-wings catalog. Against the hushed hiss of a Mystic Tan booth, Robert presides over a selection of supplements, sports drinks, and shakes, and draws on a certification in sports nutrition while guiding clients through health and weight-loss programs.
As a young man, John McKenna realized he had a talent for hairstyling, eventually moving from New York to the beaches of Florida to open his own salon. In addition to transforming the hair of clients ranging from mothers to teens, McKenna styled Miss Tampa's hair and won a reader-nominated runner-up award in 2010's Best of the Bay. Within his European-style salon, an exposed-brick accent wall adds a splash of warmth to furniture's sleek design, much like the cardigans that zoologists fit over the cheetahs they study. Behind their stations, certified color specialists paint tresses with golden highlights or lowlights and cover grays with Matrix honey-based color cream, which the salon guarantees will completely mask the offending strands. Stylists consult with clients before taking the first scissors swipes, determining the best shapes, lengths, and hues to fit each client's style. McKenna personally assures clients that "how you look is as important to us as it is to you."
