The skincare specialists at Sweetest Lounge shower epidermises with UV-free bronzer, red light, and vitamin-enriched liquid. To create a streak-free, sun-kissed glow, a certified spray-tan tech, armed with an Infinity Sun machine, carefully spritzs a customized solution evenly across bods. Clients can wear any amount of clothing during the airbrush session, baring all for a line-free tan, or baring only midriff for a farmer's tan. The UV-free tanning elixir nourishes the skin with a walnut-extract base, botanicals, and antioxidants that help to preserve color for 7–10 days. Patrons allergic to nuts can opt for the clear-tan option, which encases epidermises with a faux tanning solution sans the walnut base or cosmetic bronzer.
Large silver letters spelling Aveda march down a patterned wall, announcing the spa’s dedication to natural ingredients and aromatic botanicals. Multihued walls and verdant plants surround chairs as the staff performs hair coloring, nailcare, and spa treatments. The spa also offers off-site wellness coaching, proven more effective than hearing an ear-piercing whistle every time one reaches for a donut. Stylists and aestheticians stretch their hours until 8 p.m. on weekdays to accommodate busy clients, who also get incentives, such as 15% off Aveda products in return for donating haircare items to charity.
Style Envy's bright red couch, festooned with zebra pillows, sets the salon's tone as stylists prepare to perform hair, waxing, and tanning services. The beauty specialists lead guests on the path to hairdo reconstruction with a menu of salon services, which includes hair-coloring treatments that restore luster to locks with Scruples products and Blazing highlights. Blazing's one-step, bleach-free process achieves up to seven levels of highlights when applied to both natural hues and color-treated hair, and the stylists use a roster of 19 shades to achieve anyone’s desired color. They can also render an artfully crafted haircut and style to form a more tasteful head ornament than a diamond-studded beer helmet, in addition to bedazzling clients' domes with colorful extensions. Style Envy's tanning beds perk up bodies below the hairline and deepen skin tone in private rooms coated with playful bubblegum-pink, sky-blue, and red hues.

The comfortable center prides itself on discreet, professional care, and carries pharmaceutical-grade SkinCeuticals products to help patients maintain their supple skin at home.
Bella Dente cosmetic experts revivify patrons with tanning and teeth-whitening treatments.
