Voted Favorite Tanning Salon by the Modesto Bee readers for the past four years, Bronze Body Tanning Salon & Spa showers its glow-seeking clientele with the latest in sun-less shading technology. For a more permanent pigment, one month of tanning atop the salon's regular beds darkens the dermis with roughly 100% more efficiency than a copper slip-n-slide. Each tan-getting tryst lasts 23 minutes, but in-booth accouterments––including cooling fans, radios, and signing palm trees––help pass the time.
For more than 20 years, the techs at A Plus Nails specializing in adorning nails with miniature works of art. From detailed, three-dimensional designs to coats of long-lasting gel polish and glitter, they beautify hands and feet with options from an extensive menu.
The seasoned stylists at Versailles Salon & Spa pamper cranial carpets with precise haircuts and professional haircare products from brands such as Scruples, Pureology and Joico. After a thorough consultation that considers the client's ideal look and favorite Peanuts character, shears wizards trim locks to fashionable lengths. A blow-dry instills newly cropped locks with added bounce, readying clients for their debut on the runway or that one sidewalk near the post office. For a complete makeover, guests can also opt for full color, submitting heads to be doused in a single hue for about two hours. Alternatively, partial highlights can disrupt monochromatic looks with prismatic light catchers that create depth, dimension, and envious emotions in the hearts of local siberian tigers.
At The Nail Place's digit masters retouch nails in private suites, applying long-lasting manicure and pedicure treatments over the course of two hours. During the no-chip manicure, gel and vibrant polish is lamp-baked into a finger ornament that is both vivid and long lasting, much like the memory of seeing an elderly professor eat an entire football. Neither the cruel slaps of closing doors nor the scratches of glancing blowdarts will dent or scratch the no-chip manicure once applied. After feet receive a full cuticle and nail pruning, they can luxuriate with a soothing, thorough sole massage and clean themselves with the nail buffer and file provided to all clients.
Elegant Image Skin & Laser Spa brings together an eclectic team of cosmetic-nurse specialists, stylists, nail techs, and certified massage therapists to pamper and prettify patrons with a full menu of spa and salon services under one roof. Nurse-administered beauty injections such as Botox and fillers aim to smooth out fine lines, and spa facials and microdermabrasion treatments aim to imbue skin with the elasticity of a spandex-wearing gummy bear. Massage therapists coax out tension with soothing Swedish or deep-tissue strokes, and techs cheer up extremities with manicures, pedicures, and spot-on impressions of Rodney Dangerfield's toes. In the full-service hair salon, stylists spritz patrons' topknots with professional products from brands such as Paul Mitchell and Redken as they update outmoded ‘dos into chic looks.
In addition to beautifying themselves with Southern Exposure's luxurious tanning, nail, and salon treatments, clients treat their backs and bodies to massages from certified therapist Sharon Faria. Faria not only helps clients relax with her healing touch, but she specializes in therapeutic massage modalities such as reflexology, deep tissue, and acupressure for patients with demanding, stressful jobs, or those unfortunate single-jointed souls unable to thoroughly rub the middle of their own back.
