Amazing Tans, celebrating its 18-year anniversary, furnishes its interiors with a range of cutting-edge tanning beds and booths. The studio's Matrix, Sun Board, and Velocity beds filter out 98% of UVB rays—the rays responsible for reddening skin. Aside from tanning beds, Magic Tan and Mystic Tan standup tanning booths mist bodies in UV-free sunless tanning formulas, transforming pasty hues into even, natural-looking bronze tones. Tanning and skincare products are available for purchase, including Australian Gold, Designer Skin, and Amazing Face bronzers and moisturizers.
The airbrush artists of Spray Tan California consider spray tanning a safer, more healthful alternative to baking under UV rays; it makes sense, then, that their formulas steer clear of harsh chemicals and other ingredients that may damage skin. Rather than bronze with artificial dyes, they infuse skin with serums made from eco-friendly compounds and organic essential oils. Green tea, coffee-bean extracts, and jojoba-seed oils work together to achieve the same results as hours of outdoor tanning or meticulous finger painting.
Beachy murals, wicker furniture, and colorful plants evoke a tropical feel inside Paradise Tan & Spa. The fleet of tanning booths – in standard and super/platinum wattage strengths – blankets patrons in a tropical golden hue. The staff also whitens customers’ teeth and waxes bodies free of unwanted hair.
Planet Beach is a futuristic relaxation station where state-of-the-art machines administer all the services. These friendly automatons facilitate everything from hydro massages and oxygen therapy to spray tanning and luminous facials, as well as Planet Beach's signature take on tantastic UV therapy. Each machine is designed for a specific service, which makes it the ultimate expert and keeps it from developing the ability to cry. Advanced spa services, such as hydro-derma fusion, sauna time, hydro massage ($40 per session), and luminous facials ($40 per session) provide opportunities for sweating, moisturizing, and photoskinthesis.
When it comes to beauty, Luxe Hair Lounge and Day Spa covers all of its bases with an expert for almost every aspect of the body’s appearance. The salon’s stylists, for example, revitalize scalps with precision haircuts and treatments that add volume and texture to wilting strands. Not to be outdone, the spa’s aestheticians smooth away wrinkles with beauty injections and oversee a tanning bed that imbues skin with shades of bronze. There’s a reason all of these services exist under one roof. Luxe’s one-stop beauty emporium saves clients time that would otherwise be spent running from salon to massage studio or tediously melting a wax candle over all of their hairy body parts.
At Taki's Salon and Spa, a team of eight designer and master stylists, two manicurists, and one massage therapist relaxes and beautifies bodies with a variety of services. The hair artists accentuate coifs with full or partial coloring, permanent waves, and thermal straightening, whereas the nail experts soften skin with exfoliating rose-scented or chocolate-mint-truffle scrubs. The list of targeted therapeutic massages includes the signature Shellatsu, in which the therapist uses lava seashells to knead away stress from pressure points, loosen muscles, and plug up the body’s naturally occurring volcanoes.
