Inside the climate-controlled Sun Angel tanning bed, a mist carries calming scents while a sensor automatically measures the tanner's UV light sensitivity to reduce the chance of sunburn. E-Z Tan provides a customizable tanning experience to the greater Houston area with four locations, furnishing each bronzing shop with four types of UV beds, which also include the Affinity 950 Ultra Power bed which helps patrons obtain the darkest results possible. E-Z Tan clients also have a sunless option in the form of the private, self-serve Mystic Tan spray-tan booth that uses automated technology to mist bodies uniformly, from contours to crevices to extra sets of knee joints.
At Posh Nail Company's Dublin location, the team believes spa treatments should accentuate natural beauty and embrace natural techniques. As a result, the nail gurus exclusively seek out nontoxic products, lining their shelves with organic skincare balms that feature everything from moisturizing botanical extracts to pure almond oil. Harsh chemical agents have no place in this environment, and the staff members even refuse to use acetone when removing polish because of the unnatural drying effects. To further demonstrate their commitment to eco-friendly practices, the technicians perform waterless manicures and shake hands with every squirrel they see.
Ageless Innovations Skin Care fancifies faces with more than 15 years of experience in tow. The refreshing microdermabrasion kicks off with a facial cleansing to remove grime and stray poppy seeds before a prepeel solution preps skin for its pending pampering. As clients recline on a vibrating mat, the microdermabrasion treatment will clear skin's superficies to reveal a beautiful hidden depth rivaled only by close-reading children's books. Afterward, a vitamin serum and sunscreen boost the recovery process and promote a youthful, vibrant-looking epidermis.
With 20 years of collective experience and a selection of all-organic haircare products, the stylists at Tomball Beauty Salon keep clients looking fresh and well coiffed. They offer haircutting services for men and women, as well as conditioning treatments, styling, and coloring.
A wildly successful alternative to traditional day spas—its more than 300 locations blanket 36 states and half a dozen countries—Planet Beach 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 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.
