As sunless bathers daydream within two levels of Ergoline beds, melanin rises to the skin's surface at the beck and call of a high-pressure cooling system or adjustable face tanners, leaving bodies with a golden glow in just 10–12 minutes. For those who prefer the misty kiss of a sunless spray tan, formulas by VersaSpa, Mystic Tan, or Norvell grace guests with new shades that can last from four to seven days and won't leave skin looking unnaturally orange or supernaturally blue.
Before opening his salon and spa in 2001, owner and lead stylist James Barrow traveled far and wide to perfect his aesthetic craft at the Bumble and bumble University, Vidal Sassoon, and in Toni&Guy workshops.

Barrow leads a team of stylists who cut, color, and texturize hair, retexture skin through facials and waxing services, and tend to aches and tension with massage.
