Spanning more than 150 locations and six states, L.A. Tan's beautifying services polish pallid epidermises into shining, bronzed statues and brighten smiles with whitening treatments. A Level 1, 2, or 3 booth tan glows warmly with UVB rays, stimulating the body's production of vitamin D and burnishing epidermises to a brilliant sheen. UV-free spray tans, such as Mystic Tan or Versa Spa sessions, quickly glaze outer skin shells into glistening hues without exposing hides to the sun's harmful rays or pitiful knock-knock jokes.
The MVP haircut is reserved for guys who want the brawn of a chiseled cut with the extreme adrenaline rush of a pleasant pampering. Following careful instructions or expert intuition, stylists can clean up the edges without sacrificing any degree of edginess. A thorough shampoo and scalp massage ensures an itch-free walk off, while a neck and shoulder massage with steamed towel leaves cleaned-up batters with the zonal focus to connect on any upcoming office pitch.
At Lennartz Olde Time Barbershop, thread choppers relax head pastures with a shampoo massage before shaping overgrown follicles into a custom or military cut and shaving leftover tufts around the ears and neck. The men's rolling-cream facial gently exfoliates dead skin cells to smooth facades, while the men's clay-mask facial ensconces kissers in imported English clay to clear pores of dirt leftover from childhood tetherball games. Afterward, barbers lather up whiskers in warm suds and swathe faces in hot towels to soften the bristles, ensuring a smooth, even shave via straight razor or sharpened protractor. A final cold-towel application and a splash of 1935 Lucky Tiger aftershave top off the pampering.
Julee Bourne, Smooth Reflections’ professional technician, betters skin suits with revitalizing epidermal treatments. Countenances covered by dry skin, dead cells, and last year’s birthday cake can find succor in the exfoliating effects of a microdermabrasion treatment. The 30–45 minute slough session removes the drab outermost skin layer to reveal the smooth cells underneath. Instead of loudly chastising problem skin in the supermarket produce aisle, an individual treatment—or a series of treatments—noninvasively addresses uneven areas.
Enthusiastic nail technicians at Graffitti's Hair & Nail Salon set vibrantly colored trends with glamorous nail treatments. Technicians buff fingernails into attractive shapes and tame cuticles with careful precision. Then, nail artists apply the client's choice of OPI or China Glaze nail products. Clients can make their fingers and toes shine together with like-minded colors, or indulge in multi-hued shellac finishes that catch eyes, turn necks, and challenge the faith of all paint-by-number enthusiasts. Upgrades for french tips ($5) and nail art ($5+) are also available.
