There may be one simple goal at Urban Tan—to attain a dark, sun-kissed body—but there are many ways of achieving it. This tanning facility stocks numerous tanning booths and beds equipped with a veritable selection of designs, lamps, and features that help each client receive the tan that they prefer. Take, for instance, the Miracle Sun Saturn—its lamps produce specialized ratios of UVB to stimulate melanin production and just the right amount of UVA to oxidize the UVB into a rich, even brown tone. The KBL America 4500 system includes 400-watt facial tanners, and the Ergoline Excellence 800 Turbo features VibraSound so that tanners don’t have to squeeze their favorite pop singer into the booth with them. In addition to their advanced tanning equipment, Urban Tan carries more than a dozen lotions from Swedish Beauty, California Tan, and Designer Skin.

Inside her cranberry-colored salon, owner Melissa Newhouse helps bodies adopt a golden glow without the use of harmful UV rays. Wielding her airbrush wand, she applies the water-based tanning solution in the client's chosen shade, fashioning a custom sun-kissed façade that lasts up to seven days or until the sun seeks redress for patent infringement. In-salon appointments generally take about 10 to 20 minutes, though Melissa can also take her pallor-fighting prowess on the road to accommodate big events or tanning parties.
Portland Pearl makes guests feel as welcome as a soldier in a Norman Rockwell painting by offering each a complimentary beverage when he or she enters its chic confines. Your hair makeover begins with a cut that tailors locks to your sense of style and face shape. Then, a scalp massage kneads away stress and worries about how the dinosaurs went extinct. The hydrating hair mask imbues strands with moisture and nutrients, giving them a glossy glow and the bounciness of a pogo stick. The pampering procedure concludes with a soothing foot soak and hydrating foot mask with hot towel wraps, which enfold the body’s most hardworking appendages in a warm embrace. Ample street parking makes getting to the salon and spa easier than finding rock candy in a gravel pit.
