The neon hues decking each of Orlando Tan Company's private treatment rooms evoke a beachy feel, allowing guests to simulate the experience of sunbathing while getting a jumpstart on a sultry summer glow. Each room houses one of four levels of UV bed, which bolster the classic tanning experience with high-pressure bulbs, air-conditioning systems, and angled neck and shoulder tanners that even out the awkward color gained during outdoor handstands. Meanwhile, UV-free Mystic spray-tanning booths ensconce bodies in a spacious standup compartment that coats skin in alternating jets of pigmented mist and cool air to leave a weeklong golden sheen in fewer than 60 seconds. Behind the counter, the salon showcases a selection of tan-enhancing lotions, each of which works to prolong tawny hues by moisturizing skin, adding a touch of bronzer, and convincing skin cells that they're made of copper.
At Majestic Skin and Massage, it’s all about individuality. The team of massage therapists and aestheticians believes that no two people share identical skin types or muscular tension, and thus, no two people should receive identical facials or massages. Clients can pick from an extensive lineup of facials geared toward specific facial concerns, such as wrinkles, acne, or sensitive skin, before the aesthetician further customizes the treatment to fit the client’s unique skin type. Similarly, four massage modalities, including Thai, therapeutic, and chair massage, converge to root out kinks with tailored strokes that render each muscle softer than a pillow stuffed with smaller pillows.
Wherever eyelids are in need, Lashes on the Run is there. A mobile beauty expert comes to clients, providing plush looks with maximum convenience. With practiced precision, she uses a water-resistant adhesive to bond individual eyelash extensions to natural lashes and create semipermanent, voluminous effects. The faux- or cruelty-free real-mink strands can be customized to suit facial features by tweaking curl, length, thickness, and coy blinkability. After initial applications, the specialists can return for touchups whenever they're needed.
Additionally, Lashes on the Run perfects smiles with in-office teeth-whitening treatments. An LED-activated solution evicts stains caused by tea, soda, and coffee, revealing pearly whites up to 12 shades lighter. Each application takes about 15 minutes.
Pale-blue walls ensconce a private treatment room tucked inside LOA Fitness, where Marjohn Skin Care's namesake aesthetician pampers clients with advanced beauty treatments and instills tips on proper skin maintenance. Framed training certificates mingle with white wicker baskets and floral paintings on the walls of the tranquil haven as Marjohn polishes exteriors with Vacu-Sage cellulite treatments and advanced far-infrared body wraps. The specialist also calls upon the anti-aging powers of six skincare lines including Ageless and Vital C, which use powerful antioxidants and flattering cheesecloth camera filters to further enhance each client's natural beauty.
Deena puts her degree from Florida College of Natural Health to use at Love Your Skin, Spa. She offers a wide range of spa services, artfully rendered with professional products from Image Skincare. Clients can stroll in for a high-grade chemical peel, a skin-smoothing wax, or an energy-aligning acupressure massage. And before they get pampered, they can take in the spa's soothing ambiance in a naturally lit reception area decked out in mocha and dark-chocolate tones.
With warm sunlight pouring inside, high ceilings with exposed wood beams, and pretty tiled sink, Affordable Facials and More’s facial room feels more like a bathroom in a cozy home. This relaxing environment is where aestheticians perform glycolic peels, microdermabrasion treatments, and custom facials that treat everything from fine lines to acne.
Though the bright colors and mod furniture of South Beach Tanning’s numerous salons may tempt clients to kick back for hours, that’s not the staff’s goal. Instead, they strive to provide swift, hassle-free tans that get clients out the door quickly to enjoy the day. Each of the chain’s salons boasts a floor plan that is twice as large as the average tanning salon, which increases the likelihood that a bed will be free and therefore reduces annoying wait times. Guests can choose from five tiers of UV beds, whose successive levels beget increased bulb output and more amenities to imbue swifter, more comfortable tans. For a UV-free glow, customers can opt to hop in the salon’s automated VersaSpa booths, which guide jets of pigmented formula from head to toe in only 46 seconds to grant a look as summery as boat sails composed of stitched-together bikinis.
