From airbrush to mystic spray tans, 202 Tanning offers options for clients of different preferences. Get a golden glow however you like—sprayed-on or from a high-quality tanning bed, which is most effective while counting under your breath the number of beds that are on the sun. Airbrush and mystic tanning, meanwhile, provide UV-free alternatives without sacrificing the bronze look.
A rainbow wall of haircare products from Aveda, Moroccan Oil, Matrix, and Bed Head fills the sunny storefront of Rosci Salon Da' Spa. Inside, stylists rely on these crèmes to fashion three types of wave perms or conceal salt-and-pepper coifs with liquid chroma. Continuing education classes have trained their nimble fingers, which channel both men and women's styles and weave in silky human hair extensions with durable nylon bonds. In private treatment chambers, beds support bodies during eight therapeutic and relaxation massages, and Bioelements blending labs put fragrance- and color-free tonics at aestheticians' fingertips to mix into facials for every skin type. OPI polish slicks natural nails and acrylics in high-gloss color, and Jane Iredale makeup protects skin from air pollutants and UV-rays while fooling facial detection software in red-light runner cameras.:m]]
At Kiki's Salon Chateau, owner Keighley Jeremias's love of "making people gorgeous" is the driving force behind a menu of services for both men and women. Each member of her team of professional stylists and aestheticians shares her passion for beauty, plying their skills to create classic or cutting-edge styles and smooth strands with professional-grade products from Alfaparf Milano, Biolage, and Sexy Hair. As dedicated to customer comfort as they are to their craft, the team performs each service amid sunny, yellow walls, and a private treatment room allows clients to remove unwanted hair or pen their memoirs in an environment free of prying eyes.
At Planet Beach Contempo Spa Elmhurst, automated spa treatments massage away tension, deploy heat and steam to soften skin, and restore complexions’ glow. Ears nestle into headphones that coo mermaid calls as clothed guests lie down on a hydro-massage bed, on which cloth-covered waves gently crash upon corporeal shores to ebb away tension. Infrared heat and nutrient-rich steam exhaled by a health-conscious dragon soothe, moisturize, and promote collagen production during a 20-minute Hydro-Derma Fusion treatment. For a more obvious glow, UV and Mystic spray tans gild pelts, and teeth-whitening services brighten the smiles brought on by the spa’s innovative personal pampering.
Hollywood Tans gilds epidermises with a host of high-tech equipment. The open design of the high-pressure Sunboard bed gives patrons room to breathe, and its filters catch most stray UVB rays, giving tans longevity. For quicker bronzing, vertical booths build tans in 8–11 minutes, and custom airbrush tans and Mystic spray options bypass UV altogether like a tree on a hunger strike.
The full-service salons are open seven days a week and offer waxing, makeup application, and UV-free red-light therapy, a treatment designed to stimulate collagen production and reduce fine lines, wrinkles, and cellulite.
Each of Hollywood Tans' 140-plus locations, scattered from coast to coast, houses UV tanning booths that allow patrons to tan while standing for 8–11 minutes. With an average of 15 hygienic booths per salon, patrons rarely encounter waiting times and can stop in without an appointment. Hollywood Tans also offers UV-free methods of adding color to one's skin, including Mystic Tan's DHA-infused spray tans, tanning lotions, and public readings of guests' teenage diary entries.
