LA Bronze Ultra Luxe Tanning Studios service tanners on the go and provides a respite for those looking to relax. Inside stand-up booths, clients remain on their feet while up to 60 bulbs create a 360-degree tan. Clients may also choose to stand up for a twelve-minute session inside a warm capsule or choose a bronze hue to have misted on their skin and settling into a sun-kissed glow in three hours. Those looking to enhance their tans can purchase power lotions, bronzers, accelerators, and cooling lotions from the salon’s collection of tanning products.
Hollywood Tans' proprietary booths and technologies produce consistent skin tones without the hassle of baking in the sun. The studio boasts roughly 15 upright, sanitary booths that allow customers to do jumping jacks as they build bronze in 8–11 minutes. For those who prefer to shade sans rays, Mystic spray vestibules banish pallor by misting pelts in aloe-rich custom shades that last up to seven days, and a proprietary line of tanning lotions helps maintain and maximize color between visits.
A boldly shaped beehive of black and blond braids. Cascading blond curls, shaded by a sheer veil. The two hairstyles seem like polar opposites, but the team of stylists and makeup artists at Queens Coiffure were able to expertly craft both for their clients. Helmed by Bethany Bell—whose nickname, “Queen B,” inspired the studio’s name—the team’s services can easily prepare a bride for her wedding day or a model for an avant-garde fashion shoot. The stylists complement their custom hairdos and extensions with hairstyling lessons, which teach patrons that a braid is not just one massive, neglected split end. Meanwhile, their spray tans, eyelash tints, and meticulous manicures enhance features for any occasion.
The Dollhouse's Dana and Desiree Imbesi have one goal—to make their clients' skin as smooth and as beautiful as that of a porcelain doll. That said, they don't shy away from applying rich color in the form of organic airbrush tanning formulas. Add-ons to their signature tanning service include a smoothing pineapple exfoliant and a variety of extending creams. The spa's other specialty is unquestionably waxing, though Dana and Desiree also offer expert makeup applications for clients and their most prized dolls.
The Tannery Club offers customers a chance to obtain bronze skin no matter the season. UV tanning is available in both standup booths and different levels of sanitized beds, in tandem with tanning lotions and salves. Other services include red-light therapy, spray and airbrush tans, and teeth whitening.
NYW Beauty Island's technicians wage a campaign of beauty and relaxation with cosmetic technology. They operate body-contouring equipment and pamper clients with traditional facials that leave mugs glowing, like neon coffee. Their diverse treatment catalog includes body wraps, LED facial rejuvenation, and waxing. They even make waiting for appointments a relaxing experience by furnishing the lounge with densely cushioned, mocha-colored couches, an elegant rug, candles, and a wide range of verdant plants.
Individualized attention is the name of the game at Ageless Skin Solutions. Massage therapists take the time to consult with clients, and aestheticians thoroughly analyze the skin with assistance from the sun-damage-detecting Visia machine. Staffers then carefully select the appropriate massage lotions or skin products and thoroughly explain each service in detail. The team uses only noncomedogenic ingredients and pure pressed oils discovered during years of researching product lines and conversations with houseplants. Skincare experts personalize treatments to focus on specific concerns, such as acne, hyperpigmentation, or fine lines, and employ innovative anti-aging processes including microcurrent technology and LED phototherapy. Exfoliating enzymes and diamond-based microdermabrasion sessions banish dead cells and include a complimentary massage of the face, neck, shoulders, and décolleté.
After aromatherapy-filled full-body massages, staff members direct rejuvenated guests toward the relaxation room for hot green tea or fruit-infused water and a light snack. The boutique-style reception area greets guests with elegant chandeliers, and treatment rooms cosset eyes with soft candlelight ideal for crafting a shadow-puppet version of The English Patient.
