Sassy and inspirational quotes?such as "If you are confident, you are beautiful"?adorn the pink hallways and individual rooms of Bombshell Bling and Beauty Boutique, formerly known as Fetish Beaute Boutique. These messages lend to the fun and welcoming atmosphere the staff works to create. The collection of tanning beds and sunless-tanning options darken skin tones, and a menu of waxing services readies bodies for the beach or competitive slip 'n' slide records. Makeup artists not only beautify faces for special events, they also teach lessons in proper application and color selection. Elsewhere in the shop, shelves teem with lotions and balms to enhance the tanning experience, as well watches, jewelry, and other girly accessories.
Developed in Beverly Hills, Glow to Go's sunless solution offers a safe and effective way to achieve beachy bronze in less than 10 minutes. A healthy alternative to UV beds and venomous minnow exposure, the spray tan process at Glow to Go employs Infinity Sun technology, which boasts being all natural and carbon neutral. Certified tanning technicians use airbrushes to apply customized color, misting contours with a special mixture of anti-oxidants and pure botanicals to leave skin hydrated and vibrant, like a marching band in a swimming pool. All sun-styling sessions take place in Glow to Go's 1,400-square-foot facility, and clients are encouraged to shower, shave, and remove lead aprons before swinging by for their treatment.
When Todd Beckman named his first two tanning salons The St. Louis Tan Company in 1994, he gave them a local name because he didn’t expect such rapid success. But when the business quickly expanded outside the city and into other states, Beckman changed its name to The Tan Company to reflect its national scope. Today, the company stretches from coast to coast, helping clients achieve a golden hue in upright Mystic Tan booths and in horizontal tanning beds. The salons also stock products from top industry brands such as Australian Gold, Designer Skin, and Swedish Beauty to help clients maintain their tans even after they leave the salon and return to the tunnel they’re digging to China.
Tropical Tan, with a focus on convenience and the belief that everyone deserves a great tan, spans across four locations. Each tanning sanctuary is manned by a knowledgeable staff who offer advice and suggestions on which of the many tanning beds or lotions to use for the best bronze.
La Clinica is a full-service salon and spa that has been serving up bevies of beauty to Baltimore for more than 30 years. The salon's experienced stylists will start you off with a luxurious lather, before follicles get doused in a powerful Japanese conditioning potion. The Japanese serum will be massaged into the scalp to tackle tangles at the source, and then covered by a cap to give modest strands some time to saturate in solitude. After being blasted by the gentle, warm breath of a salon dryer, head noodles will emerge silky smooth, moisturized, and strong enough to be used to hang decorative hammers on walls. To complete your cranial overhaul, a skilled scissor shaman will work with you to design a 'do that fits your lifestyle and personality.
