At Glow Spray Tan Boutique, clients acquire a tawny glow sans UV rays, thanks to helpful spray technicians armed with a vegan, eco-certified bronzing solution. During 30-minute spray-tan sessions, seasoned spritzers utilize a spray imbued with DHA—a colorless sugar derived from beets and honey pots stolen from absentminded bears. The formula reacts with proteins in the skin to create a radiant, natural-looking tan. After conferring with clients to select the ideal hue based on their individual skin tones, staff members carefully administer the tanning solution by hand. After a five-minute dry time, freshly gilded patrons saunter back into the outside world to sport their sunless radiance for up to 10 days. Glow Spray Tan Boutique administers these services from within spray suites outfitted with privacy curtains, gold wall coverings, and bouncers charged with barring entrance to party crashers from the ultraviolet end of the spectrum.
The gauzy, blush-hued curtains draped along the main hall of Glow Spray Tan Boutique softly billow as experienced staff members scurry past, each focused on beautifying bodies with safe spray tans, teeth whitening, waxing, and Xtreme lash extensions. Amid each highly sanitized treatment room, a skilled aesthetician quickly and painlessly strips away unwanted strands without double-dipping waxing sticks.
Staff members sheathe epidermises in a vegan, UV-free spray-tan solution blended with antioxidants and natural oils or galvanize grins in as little as 45 minutes with LED-powered Whiter Image treatments. The boutique’s staff offers its expertise year round, and clients unwind in the tranquil space bedecked with whimsical accents, from monochromatic baroque-print chairs to white curio cabinets lined with jars containing every species of pixie.

Janice Stark beamed as she cut the bright-pink ribbon at Salon DeLuxe’s 10-year anniversary party. She had worked tirelessly to get to this important day—honing her skill as a stylist over the course of 46 years, constantly studying up on the latest innovations in the industry, and going to great lengths to ensure first-time guests became regular visitors. When discussing her success with reporters from the Rio Rancho Observer, Janice attributed it to “old-fashioned” customer service, saying, "you need to have people come in and feel comfortable so that when they come back, they feel at home."
Today, Janice’s efforts continue to pay off, and her brightly lit salon bustles with devoted clients and a staff of all-star stylists, massage therapists, and nail technicians. The beauty team performs a sweeping array of aesthetic services while armed with advanced styling tools and products from Redken, Dermalogica, and Brazilian Blowout. In addition to their repertoire of beautifying services, staffers keep daily stress at bay with an array of spa treatments, including massages and lymphatic-drainage therapy. To ensure their clients are as comfortable as possible, they serve complimentary beverages and recite nursery rhymes before tucking guests into massage beds.
