Beach Bum Tanning's board-certified consultants speak with each client beforehand to determine the best tanning method for their golden-hued goals, allowing bronzed butterflies to emerge from their cocoons with a natural glow free of overexposure. The salon's Star Trekkian tanning beds come with features such as climate control, cool misting sprays, aromatic fragrances, and MP3 player inputs, and some beds are even open to the air to cut down on claustrophobia. As an alternative to tanning beds, the time-crunched can undergo an airbrush tanning that sun-gods skin without exposure to unforgiving UV rays or harsh Friar's Club roasts. Using a combination of fine-point- and wide-point-guided guns, Beach Bum's certified airbrush artists will shade and contour a custom-tinted tan to your body's curves, bends, and highway overpasses.
Inside Salon M&D’s open and airy space, professionals beautify clients with a range of hair, nail, and skin services. Stylists rejuvenate ’dos with cuts, coloring, keratin sessions, and diamond hair treatments, which enliven dull, lifeless locks by replacing them with sparkling rubies. Elsewhere, nail techs spruce up fingers and toes with mani-pedis, and massage therapists knead tense muscles in appointments ranging from 30 to 90 minutes. Aestheticians wax unwanted hair from bodies and apply cleansing facials and skin-brightening peels.
Drawing from her family's catalog of natural wax recipes, the proprietor of Girl from Ipanema Spa evicts fuzz with homemade waxes designed to play nice with sensitive skin. The spa's aestheticians also rejuvenate visages with facials that rely on either organic ingredients or high-tech methods, as in the photofacial, which skips PPx pulsed light across skin ponds to break up rosacea, sun damage, and other imperfections. Amidst green-tea-hued walls, exfoliating sea salts and essential oils remove dry skin and prepare bodies for airbrush tanning. Visitors can cop a full range of Éminence handmade organic skincare products to continue their bodycare at home or on the giant hamster wheels they've agreed to live on for science.
Regardless of the weather outside, it’s always summer inside Luxe Tans’ modern salon. After mocha-hued walls greet visitors in the reception area, a series of coppery, sunbaked tiles leads to the salon’s collection of powerful UV tanning beds; these decorative hues serve as a preview of what one’s skin may look like after just a few tanning sessions. Though a wide selection of lotions moisturize and protect skin from drying out under UV rays, clients can forsake exposure altogether by opting for a custom airbrush tan or a soothing dip in molten gold.
Beach Bum Tanning's high-tech beds, sunless booths, and tailored beauty treatments regularly appear in press outlets such as Allure magazine. The salon's heated Mystic HD booths spritz bodies with vibrant pigment while warming skin to ensure optimal and even color saturation without having to bear-hug King Midas. Certified Airbrush Artists also implement customized airbrush tans over 150 ways by using a combination of fine-point-guided and wide-point-guided guns to shade and contour a custom-tinted tan to the body's curves, bends, and highway overpasses.
