Golden Tan Salons recognizes the importance of cultivating an eye-catching glow at all four of their area locations. After a complimentary tour and consultation, certified tanning professionals direct patrons toward quick misting in a spray-tanning booth. Horizontal, vertical, and open-style beds build tans with UV light instead of bronze Legos as patrons enjoy features such as built-in air conditioning and aromatherapy. The team also recommends products to nourish skin and extend the life of tans.
Using skills and training they've gained over the years, the stylists at LaMode Salon revivify tresses with an arsenal of Aveda products. The highley-praised salon’s membership in the Aveda network ensures that the salon retains a bountiful stock of products and the stylists wielding them benefit from ongoing education. Full-color and foil treatments imbue manes with rich hues, while color-correction services allow patrons to reverse the decision to transform their hair into the color of dust.
A wildly successful alternative to traditional day spas—its more than 300 locations blanket 36 states and half a dozen countries—Planet Beach Contempo Spa is a futuristic relaxation station where state-of-the-art machines administer all the spa and tanning services. These friendly automatons sometimes replace familiar treatments, as in the Luminous facial, a light-based service that delivers blemish-busting results similar to those of a conventional facial. But other equipment maps out new spa territory entirely: the Hydro-Derma Fusion chamber moisturizes the whole body with nutrient-rich steam in order to offset the effects of a dry climate or a rear-end collision with a salt truck. Other machines whiten teeth, spray tan skin, and massage muscles.
Planet Beach operates on a gym-style membership system, meaning that members purchase packages or pay flat monthly rates. As members spend more time at the spa, they get to know the helpful assistants who are always on hand to demonstrate how to use the equipment without activating its ability to cry.
The Brow Studio’s staff of licensed aestheticians boasts a combined 14 years of experience shaping and styling brows, tailoring treatments to each client's unique features. Customers can highlight the classic arch structure inherent in the human visage as eyebrows mold to the will of stylists during each waxing session, which leaves hair trim, refined, and lonely around ocular orifices. An elegant indoor setting combines ample natural light with sleek black-and-white furniture in a statement that endorses peaceful resolutions to chess matches everywhere.
When Lolamax Salon’s stylists first lay eyes on new clients, they’re concerned with more than just the state of their hair. They scan each new face, searching for the cuts and styles that will best flatter those features. They also inquire about clients’ lifestyles—can they devote an hour to hair prep every morning, or do they need something that’s wash-and-wear? It’s not until stylists have their answers that they finally pick up their scissors and begin.
Hair appointments kick off with a relaxing scalp massage powered by Aveda shampoos and conditioners before stylists leads clients to the salon chair for a chic cut, a Goldwell color treatment, or a keratin smoothing treatment. Men can conceal grays or color over bald spots with Camo hair color that lasts for up to eight weeks; women can sit back as their stylist weaves locks with Great Lengths hair extensions. Aside from styling hair, the Lolamax staff removes unwanted fuzz from the eyebrows and upper lips, and recreates favorite Roy Lichtenstein paintings with full makeup applications and lash tints.

The studio stylists and other staff members, many of whom benefit from the company’s extensive training program, perform services beneath shelves laden with Aveda products.
