Floor-to-ceiling windows illuminate deep-orange walls, all of which are dutifully reflected in the salon's faux-marble tiles. Amid these modern accents, licensed cosmetologists nix fuzz from brow fringes with specialty wax sessions and revamp strands with European cut-and-color techniques. Clients also may retreat to a private room for a relaxing tan, or request nail art in the form of butterflies, roses, or close-ups of Mona Lisa's bling teardrop tattoo.
When the staffers at Desert Sun Tanning Salons say they can fix your problems with a cocktail, they?re not talking about libations. Instead, they?re referring to a method that combines two types of bronzing styles. After lying in a traditional sunbed, patrons pop into an automatic spray-tanning booth. The idea is that the UV rays in the bed trigger melanin production and open the pores so that the spray tan goes on darker and lasts longer. Of course, customers can indulge in either of these options separately, choosing from a fleet of machinery that includes Mystic Tan and VersaSpa sunless tanning booths and silver-, gold-, and platinum-level sunbeds.
They can also undergo a session that doesn?t change the skin?s tone, but, rather, tones it. Red-light therapy drenches the skin in fluorescent light that boosts collagen production in order to firm skin, tighten muscles, and transform sagging bloomers into boxer briefs. Regular salon visitors can consider purchasing a membership, which entitles them to tanning-bed upgrades and discounts on skincare products.
The professional team of stylists at Escape Salon and Spa tames unruly tresses with the plant-derived Brazilian Blowout Zero. The treatment requires no formaldehyde, relying instead upon plant-based KeraSafe to introduce essential amino acids to the hair. Tress tamers gently scrub scalps with a clarifying shampoo, washing away hair-product residue, oils, and climbing princes, and then apply the formula. The protein dives deep into the cuticle, with stylists maneuvering blow-dryers and flatirons to straighten out manes. Results can last up to 12 weeks.
