Tropical Tan, with a focus on convenience and the belief that everyone deserves a great tan, spans across four locations. Each tanning sanctuary is manned by a knowledgeable staff who offer advice and suggestions on which of the many tanning beds or lotions to use for the best bronze.
Sapphire Nails and Tanning Salon's seasoned technicians revamp skin and nails with a finesse that has yielded a steady stream of loyal clients for more than 18 years. Staffers gussy up nails with intricate polish designs and acrylic sets, bolstering manicures and pedicures with aromatic scrubs that smell of pomegranate, papaya, and high fives. Facials and massages help rejuvenate weary muscles and complexions, and a fleet of tanning beds cocoon color seekers in low- to high-intensity UV rays. Sunlight pours into the salon's serene environs through a full wall of windows, illuminating cushy pedicure thrones, royal-blue rolling chairs, and a flat-screen TV.
The specialists at European Beaute Concepts help clients retain youthful, healthy looks with skincare treatments, massages, and spa services. Licensed aestheticians offer a menu of 10 types of facials tailored to specific skincare needs, whether you're fighting blemishes or slowly turning to stone. The team's massage therapists ease away inner tension with eight types of massage, from soothing Swedish sessions to massages for pregnant women. A selection of retail products allows guests to replicate regimens at home, with stock including custom-blended make-up, dietary supplements, and aromatherapy candles.
Falling asleep at the spa might be inconvenient during a mani-pedi, but at Marché, it's a normal side-effect of their eyelash extensions. Technicians apply the extensions as part of a natural, full, or extra-full set, lending lashes a more glamorous look for up to two months (with regular touch-ups). The staff's beauty services also include brow waxes, brow tinting, and airbrush makeup applications.
Little did Alicia Imani know at 14 years old that her first jobs in salons and spas would inspire a passion for the beauty industry and a future career.

Using cosmetics from MAC, Chanel, and Lancôme, Alicia leads classes where she teaches clients how to apply makeup properly and create looks that work best with their features.
Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Nia Banks and her team of trained beautifiers offer an eclectic array of appearance-boosting services. Surgical options to fulfill patients’ Christmas wishes include tummy tucks, liposuction, and rhinoplasty. For a lighter touch, nonsurgical treatments include injections of Botox—the wrinkle-fading serum that tricks muscles into thinking they are bears that must fall into deep hibernation for months.
