Jessica, the sole aesthetician at JT Aesthetics, redefines and revamps her clients' appearances with waxing, tanning, eyelash treatments, and facial services. Minimalistic decor and earth-toned walls fill the space, and organic Rhonda Allison skincare products fill the shelves before being used during facials and chemical peels. Jessica specializes in hair removal and applies a gentle, all-natural wax that doubles as a teller that checks every hair's withdrawal slip. Spa-goers can also reward their skin with a healthy, glowing tan that uses an organic airbrush spray-tanning solution. Jessica remains dedicated to her craft by attending continuing-education courses in Phoenix, LA, and the Fountain of Youth.
At Afterglow Tanning Salon, the staff knows there's more to a session under the UV bulbs than getting tanned. Spending time in any of the four levels of UV tanning beds—especially the high-pressure Matrix bed—aims to increase serotonin and vitamin D levels so that patrons can stop taking baths in whole milk. Customers can also opt for an airbrush tan, during which a technician mists clients with California Tan Premium solution. The skin-darkening solution includes three bronzers—one that ads color to skin immediately, and two longer-acting solutions that extend the life of the tan.
Bella has nearly a dozen different brands of haircare products at her fingertips to help her transform manes inside Shear Paradise Salon. The list includes Redken, Paul Mitchell, Matrix, Pureology, and Biosilk. With those formulas, she adds eye-catching highlights, smoothes away frizz, and perms hair. Bella also wields a pair of scissors with ease, cutting off split ends and creating paper snowflakes for clients.
Convenience comes first at Celebrity Tanning, where a plethora of metro locations, extended hours, and a large lineup of tanning equipment ensure clients can achieve a sun-kissed glow with minimum fuss. Four tiers of UV beds offer escalating amenities that add to the comfort and efficacy of tanning sessions, incorporating extra facial tanners, aromatherapy, MP3 hookups, and inspirational posters of famous suns from other galaxies. For more immediate results, the salon’s automated Mystic Tan booth sends sweeping jets of misted bronzer over bodies to create a streak-free tan that lasts 7–10 days after one 60-second session. The staff of tanning specialists can help customers choose the right type of session for their skin or budget, answering any questions that may come up. Tan-prolonging lotions from brands such as Australian Gold and California Tan are also available to enhance the depth and duration of a tan without equipping clothes with UVA bulbs.
