Owned and operated by former model Darlene Stiles, Heavenly Glows provides UV-free tanning to bestow color-deprived epidermises with a bronze blessing. Welcome spaghetti-strap season with a subtle glow or dark sheen after a single spray session with a certified sunless specialist, who adjusts the treatment based on each client's preferences. Pasty exteriors are coated with an FDA-approved, organic solution appropriate for all ages, which is absorbed into the skin to induce pleasing pigmentation and, in some cases, uncontrollable giggling during performance reviews. Perfect for best-shoulder contests and Nape Day, Heavenly Glows provides a long-lasting, natural-looking tan without the harmful side effects of nuclear-fusion-based methods, and suggests these results-enhancing skin-prep tips to ready each client for his or her compliment-grabbing hue enhancement.
Though the bright colors and mod furniture of South Beach Tanning’s numerous salons may tempt clients to kick back for hours, that’s not the staff’s goal. Instead, they strive to provide swift, hassle-free tans that get clients out the door quickly to enjoy the day. Each of the chain’s salons boasts a floor plan that is twice as large as the average tanning salon, which increases the likelihood that a bed will be free and therefore reduces annoying wait times. Guests can choose from five tiers of UV beds, whose successive levels beget increased bulb output and more amenities to imbue swifter, more comfortable tans. For a UV-free glow, customers can opt to hop in the salon’s automated VersaSpa booths, which guide jets of pigmented formula from head to toe in only 46 seconds to grant a look as summery as boat sails composed of stitched-together bikinis.
Planet Beach is a futuristic relaxation station where state-of-the-art machines administer all the services. Each machine is designed for a specific service, which makes it the ultimate expert and keeps it from developing the ability to cry. A week atop the glowing Velocity high-pressure bed keeps skin bronze three to four times longer than basic beds (a $25 value per session) and the Mystic Tan sprays skeletal wrappers with a one-week luster. Complete the corporeal overhaul with three 20-minute Luminous photofacials, which employ an army of gels, lights, and tiny Shetland ponies to renew collagen growth and firm skin.
As a physical therapist with his own private practice, Hand & Stone founder and chief operating officer John Marco made sure that he kept abreast of the rapidly growing health and wellness industry.

With more than a decade of experience stowed in his steady fingers, makeup artist Kevin Perez has built quite a resume. He's done runway makeup for Victoria Secret and Cover Girl, and has even lent his talents to the entertainment industry, including at venues such as Radio City Music Hall, home of the Rockettes' rouge-covered legs. But rather than keep the tricks of the trade to himself, Kevin shares them with others in the Alamodaa series of themed workshops. Over a few hours, Kevin imparts his professional techniques to experts and amateurs alike, all while focusing on a specific subject, such as embellishing eyes with blush and shadow and maintaining complexions with face lotions, treatments, and more.
Brandi Snyder has spent much of her life around cameras, splitting her time as a model and photographer. At Lashes by Lavish, she helps others get camera ready by thickening and lengthening their natural eyelashes with realistic NovaLash extensions. Brandi carefully bonds individual lashes to a synthetic or mink extension with a waterproof adhesive. These lashes are shower safe and won’t fall out during cathartic fits of weeping. In fact, they’ll only fall out when the natural lash sheds, which happens roughly every 60 to 90 days.
