Hair can't cut itself without opposable thumbs, and it lost those during the Pleistocene epoch. Fortunately, Fiesta Hair and Tanning's stylists are poised to pick up the slack. Clients can opt for a simple bang trim, an elaborate updo, or a full-on pampering package with a haircut, conditioning treatment, and bold color application. Specialty tanning services are also available to help modern homo sapiens cultivate sun-kissed skin.
A wildly successful alternative to traditional day spas—its more than 230 locations blanket 36 states and half a dozen countries—Planet Beach — A Contempo Spa is a futuristic relaxation station where state-of-the-art machines administer all the spa and tanning services. These friendly automatons sometimes replace familiar treatments, as in the Luminous facial, a light-based service that delivers blemish-busting results similar to those of a conventional facial. But other equipment maps out new spa territory entirely: The Hydro-Derma Fusion chamber moisturizes the whole body with nutrient-rich steam in order to offset the effects of a dry climate or a rear-end collision with a salt truck. Other machines whiten teeth, spray tan skin, and massage muscles.
Planet Beach operates on a gym-style membership system, meaning that members purchase packages or pay flat monthly rates. As members spend more time at the spa, they get to know the helpful assistants who are always on hand to demonstrate how to use the equipment without activating its ability to cry.
As its name suggests, 24-7 TAN's doors are always open, helping customers to conveniently work some rejuvenating photoskinthesis into their busy schedules. Red collagen lamps outfit cutting-edge beds, bathing skin suits with targeted wavelengths designed to trigger the body's natural healing mechanisms and test traffic-signal reflexes. During each 15-minute red-light therapy session, scarlet rays penetrate skin of all types and tones to stimulate blood flow and collagen production, helping to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, crow's feet, and cellulite. Like finding the proper time to tell a joke at a criminal trial, the success of red-light therapy relies on repetition, so multiple sessions on a regular treatment schedule will provide the most noticeable results.
Sunkissed Tanning Salon’s golden walls glow in the same color as the sun, but it’s the tanning beds that impart the bronze that patrons seek. Clients repose amid high- and low-pressure beds or step into Mystic booths, which rely on automatic nozzles to evenly spritz the body in UV-free color. The salon also houses red-light therapy equipment, which strengthens the skin’s elastin to firm wrinkles and shrink pore size.
