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.
Aesthetician Emily Andrews works with clients to enhance their natural beauty with waxing, facials, makeup services, and spray-tanning services. Keeping up-to-date on the latest industry trends, Emily uses products such as stripless wax, which removes unwanted hair from the root without the use of cloth strips or telekinesis, helping to minimize waste and leaving clients with soft, smooth skin. A slew of skin issues can be addressed with one of her glycolic peels, including age spots, large pores, fine lines, and wrinkles.
At Suntanz of Tulsa, clients have two bronzing options: bed tans or the team's signature airbrush tans. The efficient, high-tech beds boast names like "The Garden of Eden" and "Shangri-La," but the airbrush tans feature something the beds lack: personalization. Trained technicians airbrush clients with a hand-held spray gun, a process that takes just 15 minutes, and comes with a pleasant cucumber-melon scent. Afterward, clients can care for their freshly bronzed skin with red-light therapy, which can help boost collagen production and minimize fine lines.
