A featured guest on Arizona Midday, Breanne Pelto has earned attention for pouring her nine years of experience as a certified sunless-tanning specialist into her beauty bar, Twinkle Tan. When certified techs lead customers into private treatment rooms, they provide disposable undergarments and hair ties before crafting custom airbrush tans with FDA-approved concoctions. By misting each client by hand and employing a full array of hues, Breanne's techs can avoid streaks and carrot-like complexions while hiding cellulite, spider veins, and blemishes. In addition to tanning, Breanne also offers teeth whitening and hair extensions made out of repurposed extension cords. Plush zebra-print chairs beckon incoming guests as beaded curtains glisten in the light of a crystal chandelier. Along the walls, racks of clothes and accessories entice the eyes.
The skin is the body’s largest organ, yet we rarely think about its health until something goes wrong. Aesthetician Ashley Robinson offers more preventative measures for skin health and radiance with her line of refining facials, waxing treatments, and makeup applications. Working from inside ABA Facial & Lash Bar's modern purple treatment rooms, she draws upon the latest skincare technology such as chemical peels, microdermabrasion, and dermaplaning to remove dead skin and stuck-on Zorro masks, revealing the healthier complexion hiding just underneath. Aside from her in-salon treatments, she also specializes in crafting at-home regimens that help customers maintain their results long-term.
Brandi Nuttall, the owner of Dolce Salon & Spa, must believe that you can never have too much of a good thing. Expanding upon her first and second Dolce locations, which measure in at 12,000 and 13,000 square feet, respectively, she opened the third hub in 2007, and now there is a fourth. The 30,000-square-foot behemoth built in 2007 houses 62 styling stations, 21 spa rooms, 14 pedicure thrones, a makeup counter, a brow bar, and manicure stations. All four locations boast the same services?though at different scales?as well as men?s hair and spa treatments and bridal styling. Unlike hotels that charge extra for doorknobs and oxygen, the salons have a generous streak. They provide hairstyling services to those who donate to Locks of Love, spa services to local foster children, and hair clippings to areas affected by oil spills.
Maximum Airbrush Tan trades in harmful UV rays for the same paraben- and alcohol-free bronzing serums used by the contestants on Dancing with the Stars. Made by Sol2Skin, the tanning solution trades harmful chemicals for a 100% organic and paraben-and-gluten-free solution, resulting in a fresh, splotch- and streak-free tan in minutes. The salon's tanning technicians can customize darkness levels to the customer's preference, be it a warm sun-kissed glow or a deep bronze or the vintage tint of an old paperback book. Additionally, in an effort to fight cancer, Maximum Airbrush donates a portion of its spray-tan proceeds to the cancer-research foundation Tan 2 Save Lives.
No matter the skin type or problem, the licensed and experienced aestheticians at Radiant Skin have the tools and know-how to make it look glowing and youthful. They offer an extensive menu of facials, peels, and and microdermabrasions, and all can be customized to treat specific issues, such as acne and dry skin. The Rose facial, for example, is designed to treat the redness and irritation that comes with rosacea, while a Sensi Peel exfoliating treatment helps to combat environmental damage and dehydration. In addition to facial treatments, the team can whisk away unwanted hair with waxing treatments, or improve your chances in a Bambi-lookalike competition with an eyelash extensions.
