Darque Tan's arsenal of beds, booths, and nourishing lotions infuses visiting bodies with sun-kissed color. Along with at least 20 tanning beds, each location brims with tan-savvy staff members—each certified through the International Smart Tan Network—who can work with you to customize a program based on your tanning goals, skin type, and relation to black-and-white movie starlets. Sessions take place in private rooms that line a column-flanked hallway, where five different levels of UV beds give skin the perfect level of tanning. Mystic Tan and VersaSpa sunless-tanning systems imbue clients with a hydrating, natural-looking glow, which can be customized according to skin tone, desired shade, and spirit animal. A full-time cleaning staff keeps each center in pristine conditions by referencing a 50-point inspection system. Most locations have books, televisions, and kids’ play areas to keep children entertained while adults are bronzing.
Tryst's crew of seasoned stylists prettifies heads with transformative mane makeovers in a chic salon boasting a chandelier and soothing taupe colors. Treatments begin with a cleansing shampoo followed by a deep-conditioning treatment that penetrates hair’s cuticles to soften, hydrate, and smooth out kinks caused by environmental toxins and UFO tractor beams. Sip on a glass of complimentary wine and brainstorm a desired style with one of these friendly staffers. Warm gusts from a blow-dryer evict any loitering water beads from new 'dos.
Puddingstone's panoramic views provide eyefuls of the San Gabriel Valley's rocky ranges from every perspective, whether it's the mountains' natural grandeur or their reflection off the placid waves of the resort's namesake lake. While its picturesque plateaus set breathtaking scenes for weddings and other special events, the resort's 20 semiprivate hot tubs are its premier attraction. Nestled within its own cabana—complete with a private changing room, CD player, and controls for water temperature and light—each of the open-air hot tubs instantly conjures romance and relaxation. As candles flicker and sparkling cider chills on the surrounding deck, bathers take in beautiful views of the sun setting over Puddingstone Lake and the valley below. Hot-tubbers may bring a cooler and basket of snacks to enhance the evening, so long as containers aren’t made of glass and patrons wait at least 30 minutes before swimming laps.
The hair-pampering pros at The Haircutters have trimmed locks and transformed outmoded manes for more than a quarter of a century. Unlike many salons, in which shampooing is a separate service, the team starts off every haircut and style by treating scalps to suds with handfuls of professional products from top brands such as Biolage and American Crew.
Apart from the signature shampoo-and-cuts, the staff at The Haircutters also offers color and texturizing services. Redken color camp for men gets hombres’ heads looking good, and spiral perms cascade with curls. Devoted to client convenience, The Haircutters welcomes walk-ins seven days a week.

Pink tablecloths and lavender walls set the scene for tea parties, and bright, comfy couches let girls lounge in style while their nails dry.
