Inside the Smart Tan–certified Tanners Paradise, trained technicians help clients achieve golden skin in their tanning beds and spray-tan booths. Beds from Voyager, 32 Express, and Focus encapsulate tanners in UV light in order to build a natural-looking tan. Accelerators from such brands as Designer Skin and Luminary boost the effectiveness of tanning, while infusing skin with nutrients and moisture. Meanwhile, MagicTan booths spray an aloe- and DHA-infused solution from 40 nozzles, evenly bronzing skin without UV rays or industrial-smelling varnish.
Flanked by bright-red walls, stylist Jillian Marker trims and transforms hair, adds depth with color, or infuses dry locks with hydration. Alongside Jillian, the savvy styling staff at Vanity Chair Beauty Salon inspires outer beauty with a gamut of salon and facial services. Aesthetician Alexie Rae Francisco-Siu tends to skin surfaces with facials that brighten tones and correct imperfections. Amid the soothing sage colors of the spa room, a waxing wrangler can lift away unwanted hair, shape brows, or remove improperly placed googly eyes.
The Face Bar’s personalized skin treatments cater to each client’s skin type. Custom facials conquer myriad skin problems, including fine lines, enlarged pores, and stubborn acne. The staff also specializes in men’s skincare and mustache-watering services. The Face Bar carries a range of skincare prouducts including Image, PCA, Bioelements and Repechage.
Hair at the Ritz’s stylists join the long-enduring battle to tame wild strands with a one-two combo of frizz-fighting treatments. Clients tired of chasing flyaway strands on a daily basis yield their locks to the Keratin Complex hair-therapy system or the Zerran RealLisse vegan formula, which is packed with wheat, corn, and other crops imported from the moon. Both treatments straighten kinks, enhance shine, and block frizz for months.
Although smoothing topsy-turvy tresses is one of Hair at the Ritz's specialties, the salon can handle far more than a few disobedient curls. Stylists knowledgeable on the latest beauty trends cut, color, and style hairdos for men, women, and children, reimagining manes with the help of Enjoy, Moroccanoil, and Matrix products. Nail technicians, meanwhile, buff and polish fingers and toes, and aestheticians remove unwanted hair with warm wax. Hair at the Ritz’s team also puts the finishing touches on outer appearances with hair extensions, henna tattoos, and even permanent makeup.
For nearly 20 years, the tan technicians at Soleil Tanning Salons have transformed pasty soul sacks into bronze living statues using UV and UV-free tanning techniques. Before tan sessions, friendly staffers educate patrons on how to get the most out of tans by using tanning lotions designed to stimulate melanin and extend the life of darker dermises. Soleil Tanning Salons are equipped with standing and horizontal tanning beds as well as UV-free MagicTan booths. The automated process typically takes 60 seconds and gives skin a golden glow thanks to micromists of custom tanner. No matter what bronzing method is chosen, tanners can rest easy knowing they will avoid burns associated with sunbathing atop radioactive beach towels.
Staffers at Sun City Tanning stock private rooms with state-of-the-art tanning beds and UV-free spray tanning booths that quickly impart clients with a sunless sun-kissed look. They consult with clients to plot plans of action, directing newcomers to gentler beds to build base tans, veterans to powerful beds that rapidly deepen tones, and geckos to dry rocks. UV-free spray tans quickly lend wintry skin a summertime sheen, and leg-tanning beds help slow-to-tan limbs catch up to neighboring skin tones.
