When Todd Beckman named his first two tanning salons The St. Louis Tan Company in 1994, he gave them a local name because he didn’t expect such rapid success. But when the business quickly expanded outside the city and into other states, Beckman changed its name to The Tan Company to reflect its national scope. Today, the company stretches from coast to coast, helping clients achieve a golden hue in upright Mystic Tan booths and in horizontal tanning beds. The salons also stock products from top industry brands such as Australian Gold, Designer Skin, and Swedish Beauty to help clients maintain their tans even after they leave the salon and return to the tunnel they’re digging to China.
La Clinica is a full-service salon and spa that has been serving up bevies of beauty to Baltimore for more than 30 years. The salon's experienced stylists will start you off with a luxurious lather, before follicles get doused in a powerful Japanese conditioning potion. The Japanese serum will be massaged into the scalp to tackle tangles at the source, and then covered by a cap to give modest strands some time to saturate in solitude. After being blasted by the gentle, warm breath of a salon dryer, head noodles will emerge silky smooth, moisturized, and strong enough to be used to hang decorative hammers on walls. To complete your cranial overhaul, a skilled scissor shaman will work with you to design a 'do that fits your lifestyle and personality.
As a therapist, Kelly was never content to settle on one craft. After graduating from the Baltimore School of Massage in 2000, she began practicing as a certified massage therapist. Soon, she also delved into detoxification and weight loss, became a licensed aesthetician and makeup artist, and trained in holistic techniques such as reflexology, chakra balancing, and energy work.
Today, Kelly follows her passion for making others feel beautiful inside the private rooms of her quiet Pikesville spa. To cultivate a serene atmosphere, she surrounds her clients with candlelight, aromatherapy, and soft music. Her range of skin treatments can cleanse pores, repair sun damage and acne scars, and infuse faces with nourishing herbs or vitamin C. She also coaxes out skin's natural glow and strangers' spontaneous compliments with back facials, body polishes, and spray tans.
The staff of Today's Image Tanning keeps customers of any skin type and tone comfy with high- and low-pressure beds in both reclining and vertical configurations. Gold-plate your entire surface with 8 to 20 minutes of exposure, or enjoy a UV-free Mystic Tanning session. Using three levels of spray and instant bronzer, a skilled technician will create an instant "fresh from the beach/shipwreck" look without requiring users to build a base tan or a base camp. Today's Image Tanning maintains a tranquil atmosphere that is 78% nitrogen, 21% oxygen, and 134.3% spa. Relax before or after your tan or skin rejuvenation and chat with one of its friendly, knowledgeable staff members. They'll come up with a tanning regimen that emulates C-3PO's gilded hue without transforming you into the prissy comic relief of your social circle.
Zena's Spa and Salon is only a hop, skip, and a jump from the University of Baltimore, where it's been a fixture of historic Mount Vernon for more than two decades. Restoration initiatives have kept the neighborhood youthful, which is fitting, since Zena's is best known for its age-defying beauty treatments. In the elegant salon area, stylists transform tresses with cut and color services, while in the spa area, aestheticians deftly rehab skin with exfoliating facials and full-body scrubs. Guests may also retreat to a private treatment room for a relaxing Swedish massage or hot stone therapy, which improves circulation and provides ammo for throwing at glass houses.
The team at Zibazz Hair Studio & Spa uses their skills in styling and skincare to make each client's natural beauty shine. Haircuts begin with a consultation to determine the cut that will best showcase features and finish with a blow-dry and style. Facials purge dirt, oil, and birthday cake frosting from pores and waxing treatments whisk unwanted hair away. The board-certified plastic surgeon on staff is available for skin analysis appointments and qualified to administer beauty injections, while the team's massage therapists perform bodywork treatments that relax muscles and minds.
