The staff at Soho Tan Spa knows there’s no single correct path to getting a glowing tan. To accommodate clients of all skin types and sensibilities, they offer tanning treatments ranging from the classic UV beds to airbrush treatments by trained technicians or the automated jets of a VersaSpa booth. Their three-pronged approach lets clients choose the level of privacy and method best suited to their skin. The VersaSpa spray tanning booths offer three tanning MyMyst shades to accommodate clients who just want a splash of color or those who want to look like they've spent weeks in a close orbit around the sun. Four brands of beds let clients emphasize facial tanning or faster tan times, while spa facials performed in the tanning salon help refresh newly tanned skin.

Brian and Rebecca Fulton are a husband-and-wife duo that decided to turn their image-making passion into a full-time job. Bring up to three buddies or fashion-forward centaurs and the two shutterbugs will capture your best side during a one-hour photo shoot. The Fultons use high-end equipment—including Canon DSLRs and an Elinchrom portable lighting system—to slice meaty moments out of reality's carcass and grill them into images of the highest possible caliber.

Pricing for prints varies by image size; use your $50 photo credit for a 4''x6'' ($3.95), 5''x7'' ($9.95), 8''x10'' ($19.95), 11''x14'' ($45.95), or four wallet-sized portraits ($9.95). RBF Photography dispenses prints with matte or glossy finishes.
Fashionistas carefully curate Zoey Bloom's array of wardrobe augmenters by culling items from lines by designers including Botkier, Deepa Gurnani, and Alexis Bittar.

Slip on a hand-sculpted Alexis Bittar Lucite-forged Chocolate Periwinkle Dust Dome ring ($245) to draw on Swarovski crystal sparkle and make digits twinkle like a lottery-winning Orion. The lacy tendrils of a slate-hued vintage-look scarf fashionably combat chills and cosset cold necks, and gold double-hammered hoop earrings dangle eye-catching glimmer from lobes ($80). Patrons can store and organize new baubles in a leopard-print Tiara jewelry case by PurseN ($48), which keeps out birds attracted by glimmering metals and sleepy scarecrow guards.
