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.
Inside My Angel Nails, skilled technicians dote on fingers and toes, shaping and filing nails before removing stray cuticles and applying a coat of color. They also complement traditional mani-pedis with a hand and foot massage, as well as a hot-towel wrap. Deluxe mani-pedis go even further by softening skin with an exfoliating scrub and a dip in warm paraffin wax. The technicians can also dazzle with glitter tips or add length with silk, acrylic, or gel tips. Staffers perform waxing on various areas of the body as well, including the face, bikini line, abdomen, and secret second abdomen.

The arched gate of Le Jardin at the Spa opens to a concrete path that leads to four small cottages where tranquility abounds. The refurbished four-cottage compound houses a full salon and spa, where clients take a mini vacation from the stresses of day-to-day life with full-body massages and relaxing facials that cleanse skin with Image and Pevonia skincare products. Inside, stylists remove split ends and salvage damaged strands with a five-step conditioning process and crossed fingers. They also host spa parties, which often include a sparkling-wine reception and decadent desserts. With the purchase of any five regularly priced spa services, clients may host their own spa party for free and bring their own food, drinks, and friends.
