Sun seekers have options when they walk through the doors at Star Tans. Their skin gets steeped in bronzer shades in the spray tanning booth, while the tanning solution from the airbrush imparts a tan-colored mist to pale skin. Both of these work without light to give skin a sun-kissed glow without the risks involved with sunbathing outdoors, such as hornets building a nest under your knees. The lamps in the UV bed mimic the sun rays, which coax melanin toward the skin surface for a natural glow.
Wall-to-wall pink surrounds clients at Exotic Nails, where technicians use a spectrum of OPI polishes to make nails just as vibrant as their surroundings. The salon augments its mani-pedis with indulgent scrubs, massages, and paraffin wax, and sees to other nail needs such as acrylic fills and repairing nails worn down from prodding too many belt sanders.
The tanning specialists and aestheticians at Glistening Goddesses harbor a wealth of collective salon experience and a shared belief that shimmering skin should not be reserved for golden statuettes. Their menu of services reflects this belief with its assortment of spray tans, facials, and waxing treatments customized to individual skin types and tones. Organic tanning solutions—applied meticulously by hand to the face or body—adhere to skin for up to seven days. Newly minted tans literally sparkle with the addition of “shimmer shots,” spray-on applications of body glitter designed to reflect the light of flashbulbs and oncoming headlights. Aside from facial and body treatments, the spa hosts cosmetics classes that teach students the tricks of the makeup trade.
The Exotic Tans staff offers both UV and sunless tanning. They show clients to standup and lie-down beds, which imbue bodies with shades that suit a variety skin types. Exotic Tans' facilities are outfitted with spray booths for those who prefer UV-free bronzing, and trained professionals are on hand to administer airbrush treatments. Like snow sandwiches, they also whiten teeth in addition to helping clients slim down with body wraps.
Ultimate Body Boutique prides itself on being a one-stop-shop salon, because it has everything its clients need to feel beautiful inside and out. Offering 10 tanning beds and booths, along with hair services, massages and waxing, this laid-back salon and spa features licensed, friendly stylists and aestheticians and a large menu of treatments. Come in for a 60-minute deep-tissue massage, or have partial highlights and a deep-conditioning treatment applied to soften hair before receiving a Brazilian wax.
DHA and erythrulose may sound foreign, but are both actually natural substances derived from beets, sugar cane, and glycerin. At Bali Glow Sunless Tanning Co, spray-tanning artists apply by hand a mist infused with these elements over skin to create an even, summery glow. They match the hue to each client's complexion, ensuring a natural look. The sessions take place in comfortable, private treatment rooms, and can target the entire body, the upper or lower body, or just the face.
