Sunsational Tanning enlivens wan complexions with a state-of-the-art array of UV and spray-tanning equipment. Step inside a private Mystic Tan at the Elkton, Middletown, and North East locations or an Autobronzer booth in Perryville, where an automated tanning system spritzes skin with precise, even coats of temporary color. During sessions, DHA and other bronzing agents infiltrate skin barriers, reading pores' private diaries to flawlessly impersonate their natural hues. More than 20 conventional tanning beds reign over each Sunsational location, emanating gentle to powerful levels of light rays to suit every complexion and skin sensitivity. Unlike doctors and demanding wall calendars, Sunsational Tanning does not require you to make appointments.
The owner of Ecocentric Salon & Spa understands that different haircuts require different kinds of stylists; a basic trim isn’t the same as a complete makeover. To make finding the right stylist easier, the owner has created a four-tier ranking system that positions stylists by their level of education, experience, and client satisfaction. All stylists use Aveda products plucked from dark wooden shelves, and natural light from a wall of towering windows helps stylists blend flattering shades of hair color and keep away nocturnal raccoons. Clients receive free neck and bang trims between regular services.
Down the hall, private treatment rooms admit clients for Aveda customized massages and botanically based mani-pedis. Before reentering the real world, clients can receive a makeup touchup with Aveda’s environmentally conscious line of cosmetics.
Inside their colorful walls, the staffers of Electric Beach Tanning Company guide visitors toward their desired shades with UV or spray tanning and a handful of other services. Clients can lay out on powerful beds or stay standing for customized spray tans before a quick round of red-light or oxygen therapy reinvigorates the body. Beyond shelves and displays stocked with bronze-boosting lotions, a bank of red lockers stands to secure valuables and post-tanning cupcakes during services.
Hollywood Tans' proprietary booths and technologies produce consistent skin tones at 140 sites worldwide. Each location boasts an average of 15 upright, sanitary booths that allow customers to do jumping jacks as they build bronze in 8–11 minutes. For those who prefer to shade sans rays, Mystic spray vestibules banish pallor by misting pelts in aloe-rich custom shades that last up to seven days, and a proprietary line of tanning lotions helps maintain and maximize color between visits.
Having treated skin conditions for more than a decade, the aestheticians at Topnotch Skincare combine their collective expertise with organic products from A Natural Difference to erase blemishes and signs of aging. Acne, fine lines, and other imperfections melt away like snowmen in a sauna after a custom European facial or chemical-peel exfoliation. Mud wraps and salt scrubs draw on Mother Nature’s medicine cupboard to restore skin’s youthful glow, and body polishes add a smooth luster to arms, legs, and torsos. To complement their cleansing services, the spa’s staff beautifies bodies with waxing treatments, airbrush tans, and makeup applications.
Though Planet Beach Contempo Spa employs two spa consultants, neither lifts a finger to perform any treatments. That’s because all of the spa’s services—massage, teeth whitening, tanning, skincare, and even weight management—are taken care of by a fleet of automated booths and capsules. Clients slip into the calorie-burning SlimCapsule or the bronzing Mystic spray-tanning booth in complete privacy, and many of the machines feature voice instructions to guide them through each treatment.
