You might think that standing up while you tan would cause an unnaturally darkened scalp, but this never happens at Hollywood Tans. That's because their arsenal of signature stand-up tanning booths create an always even, natural-looking glow in as little as eight minutes. With more than 140 locations nationwide, the chain’s salons—each a veritable bronze mine for pale bodies—can also bronze physiques Mystic Tan’s Instant Tan, a sunless formula that does not contain dangerous UV-rays or infectious California boy-band harmonies. The tone-savvy staff can also help customers choose the Instant Tan formula best suited to them, matching the bronzing serums to the each person's skin tone, type, and ideal look.
Massages, body scrubs, and facials dominate the services at The Day Spa at Skin Deep. Inside, beauty technicians put time into helping their clients get into a relaxed state before they get started improving complexions and soothing muscles. On top of their expertise in body care, staff members bring their confidence and welcoming attitudes to each service, making the spa feel comfortable for both frequent spagoers and those who have only previously gotten facials from a friend's cousin's spouse's brother.
Guests seeking temporary refuge at the brand-new facility of Bella Gente, LLC, located within the Aesthetic Plastic Surgery Center, may feel as though they're lounging in the comforts of a well-appointed home. Bella Gente offers full-body waxing, designer brow treatments, chemical peels, lash and brow tinting, and facials.
At B-Tan Tanning Salon, many clients tan like elephants sleep: while standing up. The salon specializes in stand-up tanning booths that cast light on clients from all sides, thereby ensuring a tan with comprehensive coverage. These booths also typically utilize stronger lamps than the beds, shortening the length of visits while lending skin a copper sheen. Some booths don't have lights at all—the Mystic spray-tanning booth bronzes bodies with a fine mist, customized to apply a desired color.
Alongside the booths, clients can, of course, sun themselves in traditional beds. The tanning consultants gladly guide visitors toward the most suitable system for their skin type, and recommend designer skin lotions that leave bodies with a dewy glow to turn heads at the beach or the National Streakers' Convention.
Media Hair Stop has been dishing out flashy haircuts and styles for men, women, and kids for more than 10 years. But the stylists do much more than snip off overgrown strands—they also add eye-popping color by Matrix and fashion updos that are classy enough for weddings or spontaneous limo rides. In addition to haircuts, they enhance their clients' beauty with facial waxing, perms, and corrective color treatments.
Inside Studio di Estetica, a series of arched entryways leads guests to a room drenched in warm orange and yellow tones and ornamented with Roman-inspired decor. In this colorful setting, stylists reshape men’s and women’s coiffures and add color with highlights. Facials, waxing treatments, and eyebrow tinting take place in a private spa room surrounded by electric-purple walls, whereas nail technicians pamper hands and feet in the mani-pedi corner.
