What’s your favorite part about your job?
My favorite part about my job is seeing clients happy with a tan because it makes them happy about themselves.
When and how did you first develop a passion for your work?
I used to get airbrush tans, and I was always happy with the way it looked. It is also healthy for the skin, unlike tanning beds, which can cause cancer.
Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
We have certified male and female technicians to ensure everyone's comfort.
The licensed professionals at Secret Serenity oversee and administer expert skin enhancements from within a soothing, relaxed spa atmosphere for both men and women. Medical director Dr. Troy Balgo has practiced in Clairsville for the past 12 years, and Serenity's four-session laser hair-removal treatment can annex arms and legs away from unwanted embankments of rebellious skin reeds.
Anytime Tan Tanning Club first powered up its trio of German-made tanning beds in September, 1985, during the peak of the decade’s indoor-tanning boom. But just as bulky car phones and shoulder pads have faded away in the years that followed, Anytime Tan Tanning Club has stayed on top of trends by acquiring the latest equipment for its eight area locations.
The staff members at each location can pair clients with all manner of machines, from powerful Ergoline beds and booths to innovative sunless-tanning solutions from VersaSpa. For added vanity, most of the salon’s locations offer professional teeth-whitening services. And the Robinson location even provides Evolv sunless tanning and innovative red-light therapy, which aims to diminish signs of aging or the fact that someone enjoys napping on pizzas.
The stylists at Identity cut, condition, and color the hair of women, men, and children using products from Aquage, Kenra Professional, and Matrix Professional Haircare & Color. The studio also houses a team of aestheticians who groom nails and wax unwanted hair. Appointed with ornately patterned furnishings and recent issues of hairstyling and Highlights magazines, the waiting area lets guests lounge before and after their appointments.
For more than 50 years, AnTina's Salon & Boutique’s services—including hairstyling, mani-pedis, tanning, and waxing—have gussied up clientele from feet to coiffure. Staffers consistently update their aesthetic education, keeping track of new technology and trends, such as replacing hair with feathers.
Though their tanning bed's bulbs are designed to last for up to 800 hours, the staff at The Equator replaces them after only 500–700 hours of use to ensure optimal UVB output. This is just one example of their dedication to providing the best possible tanning experience—another is the way in which they meticulously clean each tanning bed before and after each session. Aside from traditional UV tanning and sunless Mystic Tan offerings, they shrink unwanted bodily bulges with curve-contouring infrared-heat wraps. Infrared light goes to work, heating the subcutaneous layer of skin to sweep away unnecessary cellular deposits. Treatments burn through up to 1,400 calories an hour, dwarfing the results of other activities such as marathon running's 1,186 calories or marathon staring contest's two calories.
