The staff at Alternative Tan Spa respects all aspects of individuality, from your personal skin type to your musical tastes. They dole out tips for tanning schedules and products that will suit each client, ever mindful of safety precautions for different dermal needs. Inside the spa rooms, clients can load a favorite CD into the stereo before visiting their chosen booth or bed, basking afterward in the breezes from private cooling systems and primping at available vanity areas.
The spa's tanning equipment ranges from Level 1 Tan America beds to standup spray-tanning booths, which take less than one minute to coat bodies in a coppery sheen that can last up to 10 days. As beds increase in level, their amenities become more advanced: Level 3 Starflight beds feature facial lamps, and Level 4 Cayenne and S-Class beds refresh physiques with built-in misting systems. The open Sunboard bed bronzes skin without enclosing customers beneath a lid, finally enabling them to high-five their own feet when they achieve even coverage.
Inside their studio, the nail artists at Pink Nails and Spa expertly tackle careworn hands and feet with pampering mani-pedis and OPI polishes. Before applying these colorful shades, staff can groom hands and feet with hot stones, specialty masks, and massages while customers recline in the customer-controlled massage chairs. The shop also specializes in Shellac polish, which maintains a chip-free façade for up to two weeks after application so clients can immediately start wearing their brillo-pad mittens after sessions.

The sun shines year round within the beds and booths of the Tanning Zone, where tanning experts bestow skin with natural-looking bronze hues courtesy of UV or Mystic spray tans. To ensure that their Ultrabronz, Puretan, and Celsius 32 beds operate at optimal efficiency, they change the bulbs at half-life—just one example of their dedication to providing the best possible tanning experience. The Mystic spray-tan system is another; after guests step into a warm tanning booth, an airbrushed V.I.P. solution gilts their bodies from head to toe in under a minute. The staff’s focus on promoting healthy skin has compelled them to also offer red-light therapy, which may restore damaged skin, stimulate the growth of collagen, and cause fast-approaching cars to stop before impact.
The trained staff at Ashley Lynn's Tanning welcomes first-time and returning clients to quality bronzing beds and UV-free VersaSpa tanning booths. The full-body and facial bulbs in tanning beds of various levels speed skin to all-over darkened shades in minutes without the hassle of canning sunbeams for the winter. Staff members swap out each lamp halfway through its lifetime, ensuring tanners won’t endure weakened wattage during their session. Alternatively, the studio's VersaSpa spray-tan booth comforts tanners with an open design and an air-filtration system as they customize their 10-minute sessions by selecting either clear spray-tanning or bronzer-tanning treatment. Each treatment achieves maximum color after 8 hours, and the booth also helps to moisturize skin.
As you might have guessed by its name, Beyond Beauty delivers all the hairstyling coloring, and waxing services expected of a typical salon, but then surpasses those typical expectations––especially where customer service is concerned. The salon's refill and recycle program, for example, makes it easier for clients to keep newly refreshed coiffures in tip-top shape. Customers simply bring in their empty Biolage, Total Results, and Kenra bottles (or bottles of Beyond Beauty's own signature product line) and the staff will refill them at a 25% discount. As if that weren't enough, the staff will even accept empty bottles that don't qualify for a refill and collect them for recycling, rewarding guests with a 5% discount on product purchases and a hand-written thank you card from Mother Nature.
Though she spends her days treating bods as the principle behind Natural Esthetics, Kelli Wolthuis didn't always run in the world of spas and salons. She began her career as a registered nurse, learning the ins and outs of medicine during a stint with a cosmetic surgeon. As she worked, she realized that this blend of clinical know-how and concern for beauty had the potential to changes clients' lives. She quickly procured her aesthetician's license and began practicing her own brand of beautification. Ranging from organic facials to chemical peels and microdermabrasion, her skincare services include treatments designed to both bolster and correct. She also performs regular bodily maintenance, coating nails in long-lasting shellac polish and nixing errant fuzz with hair removal sessions.
