Brushed Tanning Studio's skilled spray-gun wielders provide a healthy alternative to traditional sun worship with UV-free sunless-tanning treatments. Using an FDA approved, 100% organic formula derived from raw sugar cane, certified technicians carefully cover every curve and contour with a golden glow that gradually appears over the course of 24 hours. The entire process takes as little as 10 minutes and lasts an average of 7–10 days, though results can last up to two weeks for clients who exfoliate sparingly or are particularly adept at time travel.
Family owned and operated since 1992, Totally Tan houses bronzing equipment that darkens skin tone in the face of time constraints and inclement weather. Optimized for building long-lasting color, the Future Sun bed gilds bodies with 46 lamps and hundreds of commissioned fireflies, and aromatherapy soothes patrons who soak up rays in the S-Class. As an alternative to UV tanning, Mystic Tan booths darken skin by coating it in long-lasting bronzer.
Each Body By Laser clinic pairs cold-laser technology with holistic health practices to help patients lose inches and keep them off. The treatment gets its magic from cold lipolasers, which are designed to gently shrink fat cells by dislodging their contents so that they can be fully discarded through the body's natural metabolic process and series of tiny secondhand stores. Each one-hour treatment series wraps up with a consultation on diet and exercise, along with a quick session atop a whole-body-vibration platform engineered to burn even more calories.
Like art-house films and fish-flavored popsicles, these procedures are not intended for everyone; females who are pregnant or nursing should not undertake the treatment, nor should patients with active forms of cancer. Should any complications be discovered during Body By Laser's initial screening, the company will issue a refund.
As a nationally certified and licensed massage therapist with a master's degree in special education, Jolie Schiering knows the power that touch can have to reduce anxiety and show support. Drawing on this experience and more than 1,000 hours of bodywork instruction, Jolie tempers troubled sinews with a variety of massage techniques. Lounging in a private room, clients prepare for Swedish, shiatsu, or hot-stone bodywork as the scented tendrils of aromatherapy oils uncurl through the air. When not calming muscles as a therapist, Jolie uses knowledge gained while acquiring a personal-training license to compete in races such as the San Diego Marathon, and obtained CPR certification from Red Cross.
Rather than just grooming nails, slapping on a coat of polish, and sending clients on their way, the nail artists at Allendale Nails pump up manicures and pedicures with indulgent lotions and pampering treatments. The crew adds lemon, cucumber, and aloe, or green-tea extract to sudsy foot baths, massages strained shoulders, and buffs away calluses with mineral foot scrubs and potent peels. Techs lengthen stubby nails with pink and white UV fill-ins, LCN or gel sets, and UV extensions. In private rooms, waxologists carefully remove unwanted scruff from the face, limbs, and bikini area, and beauty experts bestow eyes with lash extensions that bat powerfully enough to get drafted by the Mets.
The certified stylists at Lashful frame eyes with mink lashes to achieve looks ranging from elegant to seductive. Their uncanny attention to detail comes in handy during extension applications, when they meticulously attach each artificial lash to a real one to achieve the most natural look possible. Sensitive eyes need not wince in fear, as the adhesive material with which they apply lashes is specially formulated to not perturb the eye with harsh irritants or teasing optical illusions. The stylists also dip natural lashes in a semipermanent tint that—much like the extensions—gives eyes the glamorous look of freshly applied mascara.
