The friendly staff at Bella Luz aims to exponentially increase the confidence of its clientele via beautifying services administered in a lush spa environment. Potted flowers, a high ceiling, and woodsy artwork give the space an airy, natural vibe in which customers can sip on a selection of gourmet coffee and juice while bracing beauty nodules for imminent improvement.
Firefly Farm and Day Spa deploys its squadron of trained massage therapists and skilled aestheticians directly to clients' homes for high-quality pampering performed with an arsenal of organic products. After the staff offers fresh bottled water and imported lemonade, clients can exchange their expired skin cells for more fashionable epidermal layer during a high-frequency microdermabrasion facial treatment. The spa's fully vegan and organic body-scrub mask uses marine algae to help balance and moisturize the skin while working to expel toxins, free radicals, and freeloading hippie jewelry. For a more complete escape from a home's unfolded laundry, unfinished dishes, and stubbornly uncommunicative ghosts, clients can transform their abode into a day spa with the full retreat package. Lay back as a caring staff member pampers your visage with an indulgent facial, eases aching muscles with a professional therapeutic massage, and coddles tuckered-out paws or puckered-out mouths with a soothing hand or lip treatment.
There are two methods for donning bronze at Tantanic Tanning Salon: speedy airbrush sessions and tanning beds that come equipped with personal stereos. Clients can slip into a natural-looking burnt sienna thanks to the airbrush-tanning session, during which technicians apply an even coat of bronze without telltale streaks or a slowly oxidizing finish. The UV-free airbrush session bestows a tan that lasts up to one week. Regular tanning beds simulate the results of spending weeks at the beach or cutting lawns in a tankini during 15-minute sessions. Personal stereos and headphones hold cabin fever at bay as clients recline in the relaxing beds, cultivating healthy-looking tans the way a gardener strapped for time cultivates wax fruit.
