Laura B Salon’s owner, Melissa Pounds—who shared a bevy of beauty advice in the January 2011 issue of Quintessential Barrington—helms a crew of trained stylists armed with products from brands such as Wella, INOA, and Moroccanoil. Beauty-seekers can rejuvenate during custom services ranging from VersaSpa sunless tanning and full-body waxing to ammonia-free hair-coloring treatments. Under the bright light that trickles down from silver chandeliers, hairstylists trim tendrils into flattering ’dos as patrons relax in white leather chairs, periodically checking an oval, silver-framed mirror for any evidence that their face might be secretly concealing an outlawed expression.

Tropic Image Tan bronzes bodies seven days a week using a Norvell airbrush unit or high-wattage tanning beds. A pair of spray tans gilds epidermal terrain sans UV rays, with each sunless tan lasting up to a week. The tanning solution reacts with a naturally occurring protein to darken the skin, a process significantly less messy than bathing in pried-open ink cartridges. Alternatively, clients can opt for a month of tanning on four levels of beds, extending their sun-kissed look without risking singed lips. The tanning emporium offers free goggles to first-time customers and sells them to repeat visitors. The month-long unlimited package also includes a free spray tan. Tropic Image Tan cultivates information as well as browner bodies. Browse their FAQ page to soak up their high-wattage knowledge rays.

Stocked with five tanning beds and a seasoned staff of technicians, Toucan Tan bequeaths skin with a flawless and natural-looking glow, be it from UV light or sunless spray. Pristinely clean wooden floors and a hoard of pre- and posttan lotions lead the way from the lobby into private tanning rooms, where aqua-drenched walls set a beach-like scene. Here, color-thirsty skin can bask in a Level 1 Solaris bed—fortified with three face tanners for an extrabronze visage—or drink up an even tone in the standup SunScape 756. Alternatively, tanning techs, who come armed with up to seven years of spritzing experience, can mist bodies by hand with a UV- and chemical-free blend of açaí berries, sugar, beets, and aloe vera. In as little as five minutes, this custom tan infuses skin with a streak-free glow that lasts for up to seven days and eschews the fake orange tinge rendered by the antiquated sunless-tanning method of making out with a bag of cheetos.

Zip Fitness's staff strives to keep intimidation from creeping in to each of the five gyms. To welcome all exercisers—even those who have never had gym memberships before—Gym Geniuses stroll through each location donning bright-red shirts that signal their availability to help guests operate the various machines and guide them in drafting fitness goals and coming up with routines for the day. They've stocked each location with strength equipment from brands such as Precor and Life Fitness, and a guided strength circuit's 30-minute full-body workout takes the guesswork out of toning physiques. Rows of cardio equipment include treadmills, ellipticals, and upright and recumbent bikes, along with rowing machines and StairMaster step mills. For stretching and ab work, bands, balls, and body bars abound, and free weights include dumbbells, barbells, and tamed school bells.

Gold memberships unlock additional perks, such as unlimited access to Hex II tanning booths and the ActivTrax online fitness and nutrition coach, which plots out workouts and offers nutrition tools tailored to each user's goals, from slimming down to having the flexibility to comb your hair with your feet.

Envious Tanning Salon & Spa is more like a luxurious day spa than a traditional tanning studio. While it does offer classic beds and spray tanning, that's only the tip of the iceberg. Guests might have their teeth whitened and muscles massaged in one visit. Or, they might try to tone muscles on a vibrating FIT Machine or via infrared heat. This is because the spa has harnessed several forms of cutting-edge technology, which allows clients to customize their beautifying experiences in private beds and chambers.

Spanning more than 150 locations and six states, LA Tan's beautifying services polish pallid epidermises into shining, bronzed statues, and brighten smiles with whitening treatments. A Level 1, 2, or 3 booth tan glows warmly with UVB rays, stimulating the body's production of vitamin D and burnishing epidermises to a brilliant sheen. UV-free spray tans, such as Mystic Tan or VersaSpa sessions, quickly glaze outer skin shells into glistening hues without exposing hides to the sun's harmful rays or pitiful knock-knock jokes.
