More than 25 years ago, Kundan Sabarwal opened the doors of a modest 400-square-foot skincare spa in New Delhi, working diligently to gently and efficiently eradicate her clients' unwanted body hair through a blend of ancient techniques and modern indulgences. With a bit of hard-earned success, Ziba Beauty hopped the pond, eventually expanding to 17 locations in two U.S. states. Each studio embraces American style while retaining its overseas roots, amplifying faces and bodies with traditional Indian cosmetic adornment and hair removal. By rolling small loops of cotton thread over brows and other facial areas, threading specialists can remove pesky fuzz without harming the skin or skipping over fine hairs. For more sizeable zones, Sumita Wax, which was developed in India exclusively for Ziba Beauty, quickly sends errant hairs packing on the face and body. Artistic hands ink bodies with the ornate semipermanent designs of traditional mehndi, or cloak clients in sparkle with intricate art in a choice of 32 glitter mehndi colors and shimmering crystals, readying skin for special events better than a full-body tuxedo tattoo.
For more than a quarter of a century, Sirrell has performed custom beauty and relaxation treatments using the most up-to-date techniques. She analyzes each client?s unique skin type before prescribing ideal products, which may come from high-end brands such as Jan Marini, Le Meiux, and Jane Iredale mineral makeup. The spa also invites guests to indulge in full-body waxing, detox slimming tummy wraps, make-up applications, and spray tans, all enhanced by soothing music and an air-filtration system that turns oxygen into giggle gas.
The Laser Image Company’s team of medical professionals keep bodies looking beautiful by illuminating skin with lasers specialized for removing hair, tightening skin, and reducing cellulite. Teeth-whitening lasers brighten smiles in less than 20 minutes, and toenail fungus quickly succumbs to its own light-based foe. Nonlaser treatments such as Botox, chemical peels, and vitamin injections forge a young appearance without the need for undercover kindergarten ID purchases.
U-CA-TAN is an area favorite, earning second place for Best Tanning in 2008 from CityVoters. Its Mystic Tan is the original and patented spray tan, bronzing and gilding bodies without UV in 30 seconds. Once a person steps into the booth, his or her whole body will be immediately saturated with an aloe-vera-based solution that bronzes humans like a pair of baby shoes. Around six hours later, the spray-on-awesome will develop into a golden, natural-looking tan that will inspire envy from beach bums and pool hobos. With proper care, hides can remain tanned and toned for several days, giving clients a temporary color that's better for the skin than standard sunning.

Situated just three blocks from the beach, Whimsy Salon & Garden treats hair to beautifying blowouts in a cool and rustic environment. Kick back as practiced fingers shampoo and condition locks before migrating to chairs, where strands get blow-dried and lavishly styled, abandoning the Tintin curl they maintained for years out of sheer stubbornness. Upgrades are available for an additional fee, including a Kevin Murphy deep-conditioning treatment ($30), a flatiron style ($25) or a curling-iron style ($30). Guests can recline under Whimsy's crystal chandeliers while sipping a complimentary mimosa or wine that rolls sweetly off the palate, enjoying an included warm lavender-mint wrap or reveling in the salon's at-home feel.
