We shed light on four sun-free glows.
BEST FOR A BIG EVENT
During ZaSpa’s Total Eclipse
($140), you get a full-body exfoliation before a rubdown with a potion
that gives you a natural-looking glow in six to eight hours. Hotel
ZaZa, 2332 Leonard St. 214-550-9492.
BEST FOR THE TROPICS
At Sherry Gilderoy Salon, an
experienced consultant applies your airbrush tan ($40). You can choose
from six levels of color, but stay in the low zone unless you want to
blend with the island natives. 11661 Preston Rd., Ste. 135.
BEST FOR A POOL PARTY
Trigger Tan Salon & Spa
also specializes in airbrush tanning ($30). We recommend the bronze
solution (as opposed to clear), so you can see your “tan” within 20
minutes (the color gets better during the next 24 hours). 5120 W.
Lovers Ln., Ste. A. 214-340-0343.
BEST FOR A QUICK FIX
Palm Beach Tan’s Mystic Tan ($20) is
the fastest and least expensive sun-free tan. Step into a booth, and 10
seconds on each side does the trick. Your color won’t show for a few
hours unless you choose the bronzer. 14760 Preston Rd., Ste. 108.
972-385-1425. Multiple locations. www.palmbeachtan.com.

New to the Knox Park area, this store, which
specializes in Dominican and Nicaraguan tobacco, suits the neighborhood
filled with restaurants and bars that permit cigar smoking. Watch
professional Cuban cigar roller Jose Perez in action (for 35 years, he rolled cigars for Monte Cristo). Step into the humidor and choose one of the store’s personal blends or a popular name, such as Davidoff, Carlos Torao, or Macanudo. Price per cigar:
$2-$27. 3001 Knox St., Ste. 109. 214-528-5700.
This great men’s boutique sells many of our favorite accessories, including Texan Clint Orms’ money clips and custom buckles, from Western to contemporary. If Dad’s not a buckle kind of guy, keep him cool in the latest sports shirts by 120% Linen, Two Flowers, and Elements. 9669 Central Expwy., Ste. 100. (The shop is moving to Highland Park Village August 25.) 214-368-1167. www.pocketsmenswear.com.
This upscale shop is a mecca for the fly fisherman
or any guy who digs the outdoors. Here you will find everything from
beginner fly-fishing equipment to top-of-the-line bamboo rods. Outfit your dad with Clearwater’s best. The company offers a great rod for less than $100. For the master, go with the T3 rod or Buzz Off insect-repellent apparel—guaranteed
to last through washes and wearings. An Orvis “destination store,”
featuring a lodge-like atmosphere, trout ponds, and casting platforms,
opens in October. 10720 Preston Rd., Ste. 100. 214-265-1600. www.orvis.com.
The Art of Shaving Spa
An old-fashioned shave by a master barber is the ultimate luxury for men. A Traditional Shave ($25) is a special treat, but your proud papa really deserves the Royal Shave ($45), which includes an after-shave mask prepared seconds before it’s applied. If your dad’s not a shaver, buy him an aromatherapy skin treatment that leaves him refreshed and rejuvenated. As an added indulgence, pick up the Modern Shaving Set or a tub of foaming Shaving Cream. Open Wednesday through Saturday only. Neiman Marcus Downtown, 1618 Main St. 214-658-8777.
