Realizing that every minute spent primping takes away from their clients' free time, the staff of Body & Sol Tanning Boutique streamlines their services so clients can get in, get bronzed, and get out. Clients can simply walk in to the chain location closest to home, after which they consult with the trained tanning specialist over which tanning method is most suitable for their skin. After deciding on intensity and length of sessions, clients hop into one of the five tiers of UV bed. The salon also offers UV-free options such as the automated Mystic HD booth, which is loaded with four different shades of tanning pigment, all of which seep into skin through the use of heated rays. Clients can choose to deepen tans with a range of Devoted Creations tanning accelerators, or simply heighten a tan's contrast with surgically implanted angel wings or the salon's BleachBright teeth-whitening kits.

Clients walking into La Bella Delle Rose Salon might sense a warm, personal aesthetic shaping the styling studio, even if they don't know that the dark-wood reception desk was hand-built by the owner's father. Sherbet-colored walls backdrop ice-cream-themed decorations, a popcorn machine commingles with the coffeemaker in the waiting area, and a manicure station recalls a fortune-teller's table with its scarlet damask draping. While basking in Pureology hair treatments or being prepped for weddings and other landmark occasions, guests sit beneath studio lighting, which helps them tell stylists apart from IRS agents.
