At Wicked Tan, the way to appear as though you've spent a day fetching frisbees at the beach is simply to be still: lie down in a bed, stand in a booth, or pose before a spray of mist. A total of four UV tanning beds and two booths beckon guests to enter and relax as their skin takes on a look as natural as a finishing-school student on a tuxedo assembly line. Wicked Tan also presents customized airbrush tanning, administered by trained technicians who coat every arm, leg, and face with UV-free tanning solutions. To complement tanned skin, two hairstylists cut, style, and color hair with Paul Mitchell haircare products.

Since 2004, Gina Camaj's hairstyling skills have landed her hair and makeup gigs at weddings, photo shoots, and television programs. At Gina Camaj Salon and Spa, she and her team of fellow stylists use a full line of Paul Mitchell products for haircare appointments that range from trims and highlights to keratin treatments and eyelash extensions. While Gina oversees salon operations, the salon's co-owner, Karli Richardson, supervises the facility's spa. There, licensed aestheticians and massage therapists administer beautifying and relaxing treatments such as body scrubs, myofascial massages, and weight-loss mud wraps, which slim physiques more effectively than daily alligator-wrestling contests.

Stylists at Bliss Salon & Boutique can do more than cut and color hair–they can give their clients more of it. Great Lengths hair extensions transform modish bobs into sultry tresses in the space of a single appointment. Stylists treat existing strands to Goldwell color and Moroccanoil conditioners, groom and polish nails, and use wax to sculpt brows and life-size statues of clients. Their attention to fashion can be seen in the elegant black and white decor of the salon, accompanied by a definition of the word “bliss” illumined by a crystal chandelier.

Though they generally require Groupon clients to book appointments, the salon team typically welcomes walk-ins throughout the week.
