With dozens of locations sprinkled around the sunshine state, California Sun makes it easy for tanners to bronze without fear of sunburn. As sunless bathers daydream within two levels of Ergoline beds, melanin rises to the skin's surface at the beck and call of a high-pressure cooling system or adjustable face tanners, leaving bodies with a golden glow in just 10–12 minutes. For those who prefer the misty kiss of a sunless spray tan, formulas by VersaSpa, Mystic Tan, or Norvell grace guests with new shades that can last from four to seven days and won't leave skin looking unnaturally orange or supernaturally blue.
The skillful staff at Vibrant Tanning Too, named one of the area's best tanning salons by viewers of KCRA 3, guides patrons toward a sun-kissed glow through various tanning techniques. The high-powered lamps in a Gold-level or more intense Diamond-level bed darken epidermises to give bodies a beach-ready look or help them perfect their wheat-penny impressions. During 20-minute red-light rejuvenation sessions, an arsenal of light beams works to promote the production of collagen and elastin, allowing scars, stretch marks, fine lines, and wrinkles to parachute from skin surfaces. Alternatively, trained and certified technicians can deftly apply airbrushed color in 15-minute airbrush-tanning sessions, deepening the skin's hue to a light tan, deep bronze, or festive green polka dot for up to 11 vacation-like days.
La Belle Nails is all about the art of meticulously manicured fingers and toes. This newly opened nail salon in Lincoln features plenty of luxury leather massage pedicure spa chairs and a busy nail station area, allowing the licensed nail technicians on staff to spend time lavishing attention on clients' cuticles without a huge wait time. Their gel manicures won't chip or break for up to two weeks, while their spa pedicures feature a relaxing scrub. The team can also add fashion to digits by drawing nail art such as intricate flowers with the salon's OPI nail lacquers—thought they don't recommend surprise-painting these flowers on a girlfriend's fingers to make up for a fight.
Including owner Nicole Walz, 10 stylists beautify locks at Blush Salon, and they each bring distinct skills to the table. After assessing which options best complement each client’s face shape and hair, the stylists sculpt dos with cuts, revitalize looks with color, or add texture with straightening or curling treatments. The salon’s stock of haircare products, including Aveda and Pureology, help visitors maintain their new looks after each appointment. Whereas stylists reshape hair, the salon’s aestheticians remove it all together during waxing sessions.
Amazing Tans, celebrating its 18-year anniversary, furnishes its interiors with a range of cutting-edge tanning beds and booths. The studio's Matrix, Sun Board, and Velocity beds filter out 98% of UVB rays—the rays responsible for reddening skin. Aside from tanning beds, Magic Tan and Mystic Tan standup tanning booths mist bodies in UV-free sunless tanning formulas, transforming pasty hues into even, natural-looking bronze tones. Tanning and skincare products are available for purchase, including Australian Gold, Designer Skin, and Amazing Face bronzers and moisturizers.
Treatment at Advanced Laser & Medical Spa of Rye usually begins with a consultation with a medical aesthetician with supervision from board-certified medical director, Dr. Micheline Giovani. Being onsite allows her to oversee the med spa’s staff and array of services, which include Botox injections, microdermabrasions, non-invasive facelift Ultherapy, and chemical peels. More technologically advanced cosmetic techniques include acoustic-wave therapy for thickening collagen in cellulite-prone areas and laser therapy for removing skin blemishes and body hair.
