For some, a few quick swipes of eyeliner and lipstick are enough to help them face the day. For others, it doesn't even begin to make them feel beautiful, or, at the very least, is just tiresome to deal with day after day. At EverLasting Beauty by CYNDI, Cyndi Gerlach works with clients to create more lasting beauty solutions, whether through the application of permanent makeup or removal of acne scars, stretch marks, and tattoos. She is a certified permanent makeup and paramedical makeup artist, using MRI-safe pigments and FDA-approved equipment to do anything from filling in sparse brows to re-creating full brows lost to alopecia. She can also use her wide range of pigments to reconstruct areolas or fill in areas unpigmented by vitiligo.
Staff members at Just Glow Tanning and Boutique take care to recommend tanning products from their onsite salon best suited to enhance sessions in their collection of beds made by California Tan, UWE, and Montego Bay. The boutique also sells bathing suits and trendy clothing to show off skin’s new golden hues.
Convenience comes first at Celebrity Tanning, where a plethora of metro locations, extended hours, and a large lineup of tanning equipment ensure clients can achieve a sun-kissed glow with minimum fuss. Four tiers of UV beds offer escalating amenities that add to the comfort and efficacy of tanning sessions, incorporating extra facial tanners, aromatherapy, MP3 hookups, and inspirational posters of famous suns from other galaxies. For more immediate results, the salon’s automated Mystic Tan booth sends sweeping jets of misted bronzer over bodies to create a streak-free tan that lasts 7–10 days after one 60-second session. The staff of tanning specialists can help customers choose the right type of session for their skin or budget, answering any questions that may come up. Tan-prolonging lotions from brands such as Australian Gold and California Tan are also available to enhance the depth and duration of a tan without equipping clothes with UVA bulbs.

Beyond combating wrinkles and sunspots, the Blush crew goes head-to-head against errant hairs, using warm wax to smooth both face and body.
