Realizing that every minute spent primping takes away from their clients' free time, the staff of Body & Sol Tanning Boutique streamlines their services so clients can get in, get bronzed, and get out. Clients can simply walk in to the chain location closest to home, after which they consult with the trained tanning specialist over which tanning method is most suitable for their skin. After deciding on intensity and length of sessions, clients hop into one of the five tiers of UV bed. The salon also offers UV-free options such as the automated Mystic HD booth, which is loaded with four different shades of tanning pigment, all of which seep into skin through the use of heated rays. Clients can choose to deepen tans with a range of Devoted Creations tanning accelerators, or simply heighten a tan's contrast with surgically implanted angel wings or the salon's BleachBright teeth-whitening kits.
The extensively trained and certified technicians at Bahama Mama's Tanning have been helping guests to look their bronzed best for more than 14 years. Based on individual needs, the crew steers patrons towards a sunless VersaSpa experience or a variety of high-quality UV equipment, including traditional horizontal beds or vertical booths. The Ergoline Ambition 250 bed, for example, combines UV lamps and high-pressure facial bulbs with a cooling rotary foot fan. To enhance tans, staffers recommend products such as lotion made by Australian Gold, Jersey Shore's JWoww, and King Midas.
Shane's Salon & Day Spa welcomes clients with an open space accented with gleaming hardwood floors and calming lighting perches. The beauty haven's expert staff performs a variety of pampering services powered by renowned, handpicked products from OPI and Redken. The prettifying hot spot also contributes to local organizations through its community involvement, doling out much-needed support to the Chamber of Commerce and Toys for Tots rather than funding family pets that lack law-school scholarships.
St. Spa's skilled staff use years of experience to swiftly eradicate unwarranted follicles from otherwise beauteous bodies. Prepare for an upcoming vacation with a bikini wax to rid swimsuit borders of straggling strands, leaving the surrounding area radiant, stubble-free, and less prone to scrutiny from pool-side pelt hunters. Or expunge pesky undergrowth completely with the Brazilian wax service, which distracts unmentionable fuzz with an entertaining samba before briskly uprooting every last follicular offender, leaving the skin silky and baby smooth. Regardless of your pruning preference, St. Spa provides a clean, comfortable setting in which to shed trepidations and burdensome skin threads while waxing poetic about a loyal, yet newly obsolete, set of tweezers.
Named Best Salon and Best Spa in the 2012 Daily Press Readers' Choice Awards, Shear Style Salon and Spa pampers guests within the confines of its orange-ochre walls. Stylists such as senior coif crafter Lauren Frogge revamp bedraggled ‘dos into on-trend tresses during cut, color, and retexturing appointments that use top-shelf products from Moroccanoil and label.m. Stylists can professionally apply makeup or rearrange strands into stunning updos for guests heading to a special occasion such as a wedding or high-school reunion.
Meanwhile, the spa aims to repeat its 2012 success with a slate of skin and massage services. Geared toward addressing specific epidermal grievances, treatments include a colloidal oatmeal facial that ups the skin’s lipid count to stave off dryness, as well as photorejuvenation, which marshals light beams and NASA-developed technology to reintroduce even, fetching skin to world-weary visages or especially beloved hairless cats.
Elegance Nail Salon offers manicures and pedicures at the salon, but the technician will also pack-up the filers and polishes and bring the pampering treatments to you. In addition to spa and gel mani-pedis, the tech has put together signature packages: the Just the Two of Us package is a romantic spa mani-pedi getaway, during which the mood is set with candles, music, and chocolate, and even offer the option of a CPR-certified babysitter to watch the kids. For children who would rather participate in the pampering than be babysat, Elegance offers Little Diva mani-pedis, and even throws Little Miss Diva parties where children aged 5–12 can get gussied up while gossiping about the classroom goldfish.
