Behind the hallway of silver-plated doors stand Tanning Image’s fleet of traditional and UV-free booths, each outfitted with their own private room. A trained staffer helps customers select the proper stand-up capsule, which can range in four levels of intensity and three levels of emotional support. The UV-free Mystic chamber’s automatic nozzles evenly spray skin surfaces in light, medium, or dark hues that replicate a sun-kissed glow for up to eight days. Tanning Image also houses a red-light-therapy chamber designed to firm skin by fueling underlying collagen production or stuffing cheeks with as many grapes as possible.
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 seven 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 UV-rays or infectious California boy-band harmonies. Voted "Favorite Tanning Salon in North Jersey" by an independent readers' poll in Suburban Trends magazine, Hollywood Tans of Riverdale 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.
With whimsical wall decals, pink and white draperies, and treatment beds upholstered in shimmering satin, Stylash looks more like a doll's dream house than a stuffy salon. It's a fitting setting for the shop's aestheticians, who use hypoallergenic glue and an extra-light touch to doll up lash lines with long, individual eyelash extensions that can last up to one month. But the comfy, feminine atmosphere also serves a purpose—the more relaxed clients are, the better their eyelashes adhere. To that end, the staff recommends that clients keep talking and yodeling to a minimum during application and encourages them to bring in personal music players to help quiet their minds.
ZenzaSpa Wellness Boutique cultivates a relaxing atmosphere where patrons can cleanse their bodies and minds with a full menu of facials, massages, and skin care services.

Alternately, the seaweed body wrap and lavender leg and foot scrub use natural ingredients to ensure bodies feel clean and smooth. Thanks to its relaxing services and atmosphere, ZenzaSpa was named Best Spa in Bergen County in 2014 by (201) Magazine.
