Jamie Fleetwood liked working as an esthetician at Art Salon & Spa so much that she bought the beautifying business in 2010. Along with her staff of fellow estheticians, stylists, makeup artists, and massage therapists, Fleetwood pampers her clients inside the newly renovated, sun-drenched space. Her aesthetic touch might only be matched by that space’s decor: it’s accented with sleek hardwood floors, verdant plants, and earth tones as warm as a made-for-TV movie about dogs that adopt other dogs. Among these scenic fixtures, the team renders a slate of services in the form of facials, Shellac manicures, therapeutic massages, and highlights.
To save beach lovers from harmful UVA and UVB rays, April Clark uses specially formulated sprays that react naturally with skin to produce dark, even tans in 15 minutes. Working inside a private room at Moda Salon, April swathes physiques in the DHA-based solution, which, in one session, can mimic the effects of five visits to a tanning bed or eight days spent soaking in a tub of sun tea.

Since 1994, The Tan Company's certified tanning consultants have harnessed the body-bronzing power of the sun and relocated it to customers' skin through a variety of vectors. Turn up your tone gradually with $50 in services and five levels of tanning available. The UV-averse and/or time-crunched, meanwhile, can step into a Mystic Tan booth to be evenly sprayed with a formulated mixture distilled from sunshine, beer-can condensation, beach volleyball sand, aloe vera, and other natural summertime ingredients. Unlike most prop-based comedy routines, the Mystic Tan process is over fast—noticeable color enhancement will occur within two to three hours. Many Tan Company locations offer custom airbrushing as well, in case the look you're going for is a Mystic Farmer Tan.
