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 that 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.

A.J. at Hair Emporium pampers clients from head to toe with an arsenal of beautifying and relaxing services. The Garden State–inspired Jerseylicious mani-pedi applies a glamorous foil finish to trimmed fingernails as well as scrubbed and groomed toenails, and lasts about one week, dazzling passersby and temporarily stunning podiatrists. Durable gel polish adorns digits after a Shellac manicure, and cleansed and toned faces luxuriate under a seaweed mask during the 30-minute express facial. The one-hour body wrap commences with a bow-to-stern body scrub, followed by an ambrosial mud mask and moisturizer. While relaxers unwind in their earthen cocoons, skilled fingers massage the scalp and third eye for 15 minutes.

Sunsations Tanning Salon, which has catered to beauty-pageant contestants such as Miss Oklahoma Alicia Clifton, gilds limbs with three levels of tanning beds and airbrush tanning. Clients recline in a traditional or wide-body bronzing bed or stay vertical in a standup bed while inside a large private room.

In addition to tanning, Sunsations offers facials and massages by its aesthetician, Shea. During signature facials, Shea deeply cleanses pores to remove built-up dirt and grime and any glitter left over from New Year’s Eve. She also kneads bodies with custom massage techniques, releasing toxins and turning muscles into butter.

Norvell-certified technicians at 24K Airbrush Tanning Studio mist epidermises in a nontoxic tanning solution that smells of raspberries and almonds. This FDA-approved concoction contains DHA derived from a vegetable source—usually sugar beets—and can keep limbs bronze for five to seven days. The studio also keeps its shelves stocked with other UV-free tanning products, such as bronzers, pH-balanced gels, lotions, and body washes. Before leaving, clients can pop their newly caramel-colored toes into attention-grabbing Lori Jack flip-flops, which are encrusted with Swarovski crystals.

Tameisha Walker has always found satisfaction in giving back to others. Though she mostly soothes the backs and shoulders of women, she has also worked with an organization that brings massage therapy to hospice patients. Tameisha's penchant for giving back is more than apparent in each of her massage treatments at Beyond Skin Deep. After listening to clients and taking note of what ails them, Tameisha devises custom treatments that incorporate soothing Swedish or penetrating deep-tissue strokes.
