At the clean and friendly Island Tanning, clients adopt a golden glow without stepping foot outdoors. Here, traditional UV tanning booths gild bodies quickly and evenly, while VersaSpa machines bronze skin instantly and with no UV exposure whatsoever. Hydration Stations, meanwhile, help to prolong tans by infusing skin with oxygen and nutrients, and can even help skin appear more toned.
Island Tanning also beautifies bodies with skin-healing red-light-therapy. The red light can help boost collagen production, fight acne bacteria, and provide pain relief, and may even help repair sun-damaged skin or balance naturally green complexions.
In Color Salon's entourage of expert stylists collaborate with each client's individual features to create personalized styles that complement face shapes, skin tones, and eye colors.

Clients can peruse the mane-taming menu to discover skull indulgencies such as a detail color ($45+), which leaves head strands with newly discovered hues in selective regions for added dimension, or the French-derived bailage treatment ($75+), which dapples head canvases with hand-painting color techniques.

Within the private, enclosed station, oscillating airbrushes bathe bodies in a refreshing mist of polarized skin-darkening solution in a session that takes less than a minute, with effects that can linger up to five days.
