Tanu Tanning's triad of locations works to produce deep, even tans with a mélange of UV-powered beds and body-gilding lotions. Each location boasts a heavy lineup of 15–17 horizontal or vertical beds, some of which are equipped with facial tanners, so clients can customize their experience based on preferred duration and number of earthly petitions sent to Norse sun goddesses. Customers are also privy to half off all tanning-lotion bottles ($20+) with today's Groupon.

Guzman, injects dermal fillers, such as Botox and Juvéderm; rejuvenates skin with facial procedures, such as fractional skin resurfacing and microdermabrasion; and aids weight loss with methods that include meal replacements and appetite suppressants.
When NaTasha Barnes's massage skills outgrew her circle of friends and family, she knew it was time to turn her passion into a career. She received her associate's degree in applied science for massage therapy and then went on to study beauty at Aveda Fredrics Institute, where she learned the art of waxing, tinting, and braiding hair with one finger. Now as a licensed managing aesthetician and massage therapist, NaTasha offers a variety of indulgent services out of her own Tranquil Moments Day Spa. She performs relaxing one-hour massages and nixes fuzz from arms, upper lips, and glass eyeballs with a personal hair-removal session.
Tiffany, the certified manicurist and aesthetician at Beautiful Feet Begins With Me at Salon Concepts, works with a deep sense of purpose. She has a great passion for her work, and that passion manifests itself in her methodology for nailcare. She uses high-quality organic or OPI products during exfoliating sugar scrubs, and many of her services involve soaks to hydrate skin or massages to help muscles unwind. She also uses sanitizers to make sure everything is clean, just like the FCC does for infomercials.
