All the technicians at Sun Diva Tanning undergo rigorous training to be certified by NTTI––the National Tanning Training Institute. They customize full-body airbrush sessions to the individual's unique skin tone, using 95% organic spray-tan formulas free of harmful parabens. And because the solutions are vegan, clients can cultivate a UV-free glow while staying true to their lifestyles, like a giraffe that uses a giraffe-shaped tanning bed without leaving his savannah. The technicians also offer bridal parties specifically catering to brides and their bridesmaids.
From their sculptures to their architecture, it’s clear that Italians have long understood beauty. The professional beautifiers at Casa Bella Salon fittingly draw inspiration from the country’s aesthetics. They appoint their salon and spa as a villa, coating its worn stone walls in the famed bougainvillea vines that ensconce many a Tuscan manor. They further channel this ancient beauty into modern styles as they sculpt hair, apply makeup, and rejuvenate skin. They also provide manicures and pedicures, topping nails with a single hue or the stripes of the Italian flag.
Founded by entrepreneur Monica Blanco, Colour Couture revivifies clients with airbrush tans powered by proprietary tanning solutions. These customized products contain 11% DHA and a base of organic aloe-vera gel—as opposed to harmful chemicals—and are never tested on animals. The technicians who apply them all undergo a thorough training program and the Colour Couture certification they receive prepares them to apply even coats out in the field, whether they are bronzing an entire bridal party or just one friendly ghost looking to fit in with the land of the living.
The eponymous aesthetician of Oriana's Skin Therapy keeps birthday suits looking their best with a menu of facials and waxing treatments. Oriana also preaches a message of proper nutrition and ample hydration as part of a healthy skincare regimen, and recommends NeriumAD products for a boost in anti-aging efforts. Her eyelash extensions glamorize lids for special occasions and her teeth-whitening treatments brighten smiles that have gone dull from smoking cigarettes, drinking coffee, or mouthwashing with soy sauce.
Victoria Purvis, licensed aesthetician and owner of Skin by Victoria, gets to know her clients with a thorough Q-and-A session so that she can draft custom skincare plans. While pampering pores with facials, microdermabrasion, and intense-pulsed-light therapy, she also educates those on the treatment table so that they can continue good beauty habits at home. She uses dr. adam, PARIS products and the line can be purchased at Skin by Victoria and shipped to customers' homes. Her makeup applications and lessons help gussy up already-beaming complexions, and NuYu teeth-whitening sessions leave clients? smiles up to 14 shades brighter?unlike the smiles of baseball players when a barn?s broadside hits back.
Expert mane mavens at Blo-Out Lounge, which has garnered shout-outs from LA Girl, help guests choose one of five blow-out options, including Big Sexy Hair, with volume and curls, or the straight, sleek look of Urban Girl. Before sudsing up and styling locks, tress tamers evaluate the hair's condition and select a preexisting Bumble and bumble hair mask or whip up a custom creation. The masks soak into strands beneath a hot-towel wrap for about 10 minutes, and, depending on the mask, quench parched skull grass, bolster thickness, or make hair shinier than a bald head dipped in liquid gold.
