The crew at Exotic Rayz bronzes bodies year-round with a slew of vertical, prone, and spray tanning beds. Ergoline tanning beds produce sunless rays that kiss the skin with golden hues, and technicians can customize an airbrush spray tan to each individual. Exotic Rayz also specializes in Fit slimming body wraps, cosmetics, and tanning products and accessories such as JWoww bronzer and Body Butter tanning oil.
An American tourist in Mexico might stroll by a restaurant decorated with goat horns and not give the decor a second thought. However, the horns do often signify something special: birria, a hearty mexican stew from the state of Jalisco. And while Mr. Burritos and Los Lokos Burritos may not have goat horns strung across its walls, its chefs do make the spicy, soul-warming treat—but only on weekends.
The name Mr. Burritos should give away the eatery’s other specialty, which comes in nearly 20 varieties—including two vegetarian options and two sizes, baby or giant. Similar spiced meats, such as barbacoa, steak, and carnitas, also fill tacos and chimichangas. People who weirdly enjoy mornings can stop by in the a.m. for a hearty Mexican breakfast of eggs and chorizo. Aside from inviting guests to test their heat tolerances at three locations, Mr. Burritos and Los Lokos Burritos deliver their food directly to doorsteps and can also cater events such as birthday parties and presidential debates.
At Shelly’s Salon & Spa, professional stylists, aestheticians, and massage therapists swaddle men, women, and young adults in fully custom salon and spa treatments. Before dousing hair wearers with Redken 5th Avenue products and up-to-date techniques born of continuing education, the skilled mane mavens consult with clients to decide on optimally chic looks based on face shape, hair type, and favorite style of powdered wig. Similarly, aestheticians examine skin prior to body wraps and custom facials and diagnose a regimen of cleansers and procedures specifically for each individual. Massage therapists take care to deliver tailored strokes as they seek out hidden tension pockets and tightly knotted tendons across corporeal landscapes.
Debbie Markiewicz, owner of Tranquility Skin Spa, believes that everyone deserves to be pampered, which is why her treatments always cost less than $100. Though the prices remain low on each service, the technicians never skimp on quality. Nail technicians upgrade basic mani-pedis with pumpkin scrubs and chip-resistant polish, leaving hands and feet soft and shiny, like a seal's forehead. Aestheticians blend natural fruit acids and enzymes for chemical peels and combine antiseptic and anti-inflammatory ingredients into acne facials. Throughout each treatment, the beauty pros educate clients about the benefits of proper skincare. Though the 600-square-foot boutique spa is modest, the atmosphere is welcoming and friendly. Complimentary snacks and tea are always on hand for clients to enjoy as they await treatment.
The versatile stylists at Savarino Salon handle all hair-beautifying needs. Besides soothing scalp treatments, they take cuts and styles to the next level with blow-dry or flat-iron finishes, in addition to highlights and other coloring services. But no matter what the service is, each stylist employs high-end products from brands such as Rusk and Aquage.
Though Allure's taupe walls and elegant furniture evoke bygone glamour, the cosmetic treatments offered by its staff champion futuristic techniques. With the guidance of medical director Rodney Berger, MD, injector Rea Lorence banishes wrinkles with Botox and facial filler injections, while Tracey and Jill wield hair-banishing and skin-correcting lasers and individually tailor facial services to address skin imperfections like blemishes or milk mustaches. Laser skin treatments are offered by Christina, who uses her certified skills to banish hair from bodily areas and fade unwanted tattoos from sight. The center also provides weight-loss programs, body-contouring services, and spray-tanning sessions.
