Tan Pro USA has been compensating for the less-than-ideal latitudinal coordinates of Ohio since 1998. It was then that they opened their first tanning outpost furnished with 30 UV beds, and they have since expanded operations to 43 stores throughout the state. They stock each location with ample tanning units, rendering appointments an archaic formality equivalent to gifting a sheep to your defense lawyer. After customers stroll in, they can slide into an Ergoline 1100, which boasts four ultra-performance facial tanners and two high-pressure shoulder tanners. Staffers advise which lotions enhance traditional tanning results along with explaining the benefits of the UV-free VersaSpa spray-tan booths. Harnessing infrared heat, VersaSpa booths impart a glow to entire physiques or targeted trouble areas, such as the inside of the armpits.
Head 2 Toe tress decorator Courtney heeds customer requests, sculpting individualized 'dos with precision. The licensed stylist washes and trims coiffures into popular styles, from above-the-shoulder bobs to floor-length locks that strategically cover ankle tattoos. Freshly trimmed hair then assumes a vibrant alter ego as it’s painted or highlighted with a spectrum of professionally applied colors. Although not covered by today's Groupon, Head 2 Toe offers additional services for an extra fee, such as prom ‘dos, wedding packages, and eyebrow waxing that helps sneak faces into car showrooms.
Open Door's aromatherapy massage uses essential oils to provide physical and psychological relief from long days spent outrunning time and gravity. Common essential power oils include lavender, rose, jasmine, adamantium, and peppermint. The properties of these distilled plant essences help ease depression, dispel stress, and contribute to a good night's sleep. The deep-tissue massage technique, on the other hand, uses slow strokes and deep finger pressure to release your body from its dark confines of chronic tension patterns. Pain-causing adhesions (knots) will be untied to alleviate blood flow and achieve a state of relaxation that, much like your secret family in Narnia, you forgot existed.

In the Gentleman’s Room, barbers with more than 26 years of combined experience groom men with cuts, fades, beard trims, and razor shaves.
