Radiant Mist Spray Tan helps even the fairest-skinned contenders go for the gold with their UV-free, hand-applied organic solutions. Glow-getters first consult an airbrush expert to dispel fears resulting from past spray-tanning experiences involving a paintball gun and a vat of molasses, and to have a personalized hue concocted from three available shades. All airbrushing takes place in private chambers; ladies disrobe according to comfort level and tan-line concerns, and gents don swim trunks or shorts. The artists of artiface efficiently envelop envelopes in a gentle sugarcane-based solution, creating a tone equivalent to six sessions in a tanning bed or an hour on the grocery-store rotisserie, sending sun-smooched bodies out the door after only 15 minutes.

The professional hair curators at Shannon Leigh's Salon apply know-how and fortifying treatments to fashion newly shorn manes into eye-catching hirsute exhibits. Scissors deliver pink slips to split ends before stylists craft coifs into fresh and fetching variants, teaching clients how to maintain their new 'dos at home or after a whirlwind date with a hurricane. A deep-conditioning treatment seeps into and rehydrates strands parched from harsh chemical treatments, and a colorist tints hair in a subtle or bold new chromatic overcoat.
