Behind the well-kempt storefront, a long hallway leads to each of Sun Kissed Tanning & Beauty’s private rooms. Inside, five levels of UV tanning beds power up to surround visitors in a warm, glowing light. The beds come in both horizontal and vertical versions, so clients can relax in a reclined position or hiss at a cable-company phone rep while standing up. Or they can skip the UV rays altogether—during airbrush tans, a certified staffer coats physiques head to toe in a tanning solution that provides an instant bronze.
Staffed by certified members of the American Massage Therapy Association and a duo of certified aestheticians, Serenity Therapeutic Massage & Skin Care keeps bodies limber and faces fresh with a suite of rejuvenating services. Tending to physiques with tools such as soothing hot stones and warm bamboo rods, massage therapists loosen kinks and untie bowline back knots. Aestheticians—exclusively wielding botanical Pevonia products—massage and revivify faces with treatments custom-tailored to each client's skin tone, moon sign, and epidermal concern. Alternatively, a variety of spa packages for parties of two to six people combine massages with other pampering services such as facials, body treatments, and sugar scrubs.
Spanning more than 150 locations and six states, LA Tan's beautifying services polish pallid epidermises into shining, bronzed statues, and brighten smiles with whitening treatments. A Level 1, 2, or 3 booth tan glows warmly with UVB rays, stimulating the body's production of vitamin D and burnishing epidermises to a brilliant sheen. UV-free spray tans, such as Mystic Tan or VersaSpa sessions, quickly glaze outer skin shells into glistening hues without exposing hides to the sun's harmful rays or pitiful knock-knock jokes.
At Beaute Box, which channels the "feel of a chic Paris apartment" according to the Dayton Daily News, owner Lisa Scott flaunts skills acquired during nearly two decades of salon artistry. The studio began as a mobile beauty service, but has evolved to fill a space crowded with clocks, statuettes of hands, and candlesticks. Brushes cloaked in long-wear Shellac polish glide across nails, and visitors awaiting custom-designed primping parties lounge on low-slung couches. Giggles drift up to the soaring ceilings as youngsters finish pampering treatments and race through the shop, admiring newly colorful digits or attempting to match polish to an imaginary friend's eyes.

Ashworth's qualified corps of aestheticians and licensed massage therapists administer a full menu of beautifying and de-stressing services. The main salon area's open space serves as an ideal forum for trading gossip, penning existential soliloquies, and caring for nails. During the one-hour mani-pedi pairing, a nail tech carefully crowns your regal fingers and toes with new colors and shines, filling the hearts of baser nails with envy. Customers can also opt for a full spa facial, which swaddles stressed bodies in a refreshing wrap and soothes countenances with restorative lotions and creams. Exfoliation and a steam session bring the face-refining procedure to a finale more refreshing than a brisk morning swim in the Sea of Tranquility.
