Jason and Jenni Blackburn of Belle Fiole Tanning take the guesswork?and much of the risk?out of UV tanning. First, they perform a skin analysis to assess the skin's sensitivity to UV rays. With that info in mind, they tailor sessions in their advanced tanning beds to individual needs. These sessions are designed to allow pigments time to develop naturally, increasing skin's resistance to UV light. This step helps reduce the incidence of burning and skin damage?both common issues for people who tan on their own.
Licensed massage therapist Carmen Denham believes massages should be enjoyed by everyone, not just by the wealthy or fancy loaves of bread. That's because, for her, massages are a legitimate form of physical therapy. In addition to relaxing tension, they have been shown to help improve sleep, relieve headaches and promote blood circulation. Carmen aims to achieve these benefits by customizing each of her five modalities to clients' needs.

The interior of Luna Blu is immaculate and spacious?the long, curving space where the stylists work is preceded by shelves lined with products from Bumble and bumble and Aveda. Largely focused on hair artistry, the staff of experienced stylists perform fashion-forward cuts for men, women, and children, along with color services that call on gentle heat lamps for processing rather than making clients sit beneath loud, damaging dryers or ineffective rainbows. Visitors will also find a range of spa-centric services, including massages from licensed massage therapists and facials and waxing treatments performed by licensed cosmetologists. While they kick back for a hair, nail, skincare, or massage treatment, clients sip on complimentary glasses of wine and other beverages.
