Hollywood Tans, one of the nation’s largest chains of tanning salons, turns dermises gold with a special alchemic process known as Tanetics. Skin specialists consider each customer’s tanning goal, skin tone, and skin sensitivity before helping them choose the perfect skin-shading procedure. Four clean and comfortable types of stand-up UV tanning-booth options filter out most pestiferous UVB rays while speedily darkening pigment. Pricing varies, but five 11-minute bouts inside Hollywood Tans’ HT42 booth ($30) are enough to leave any pelt polished with a glossy base tan. For Daphnes fleeing Apollo, a Mystic spray-tan booth (starting at $19) depales pasty parchment with a misty coat of bronze that can last 5–7 days. The Mystic’s cartridges can be changed to allow users great flexibility in choosing their preferred skin patinas, or they can be purchased in bottle form for do-it-yourself home applications (starting at $19). A plethora of lotion is available to give your skin a longer lasting hue and moisturize your dermis until it's a glowing beacon of hydrated human hide.
Lash Logic Studio’s lash extensions make every blink a special occasion. The glamorous lashes come in synthetic, silk, and mink varieties, as well as specialty styles—glitter lashes, for example, can enhance any look with subtle sparkle, much like a hat that’s made from only half a disco ball. And, as if ditching the mascara wand wasn't enough reason to celebrate, Lash Logic also hosts lash parties held in their studio or on-location, where guests can toast their new heftier winks with free champagne.
The aestheticians at Clarity MediSpa help clients look and feel their best through beauty and wellness treatments. Wielding the Alexandrite laser, they blast away at unwanted hair on nearly any area of the body or take aim at sun spots, wrinkles, and undeveloped polaroids with IPL photo rejuvenation. Colon hydrotherapy cleanses bodies from the inside, while ionithermie body masks promote detoxification from the outside. Facials and injectable fillers fight the signs of aging without surgery, and soothing massages banish stress.
The beauty experts at Dreamers Day Spa employ Aveda and Dermalogica products to boost visitors' natural radiance in a sumptuously appointed spa washed in delicate neutral tones. Guests can indulge in pampering from head to toe, letting hairstylists snip tresses into face-flattering shapes, nail techs buff digits into glamorous fingertip accessories, and skin whisperers restore a healthy glow so luminous it could shame fireflies back into their mason jars. Glossy parquet floors reflect the glow of stained-glass windows and crystal chandeliers, and licensed massage therapists knead away tension in any of eight massage styles. Stylish moulding and vaulted ceilings in private treatment rooms create a hyperluxurious environment for surreptitious midmassage naps.
Each room in Hair Paige Salon is just as diverse as the services offered. The main room hosts guests who desire a new haircut or eye-catching highlights. There, rattan blinds rest over windows, and a canary-hued accent wall pops against its bordering maroon walls. Guests can smooth bodies with waxing services in a room that encourages relaxation with whimsical sheer curtains that cascade down windows and east asian artwork affixed to lavender walls. Elsewhere, they can sit for a manicure and a few rounds of patty-cake.
Tropical Tan, with a focus on convenience and the belief that everyone deserves a great tan, spans across four locations. Each tanning sanctuary is manned by a knowledgeable staff who offer advice and suggestions on which of the many tanning beds or lotions to use for the best bronze.
