Ten kinds of beds, two types of spray tans, and one hydration station make up Aloha Tanning, a studio manned by helpful tanning experts with more than 20 years of experience. Clients looking for a quick fix can step into the Mystic spray tan booth for a streak-free tan in 60 seconds. Those in desire of a more customized bronze can head to a master-certified technician, who airbrushes skin with Norvell tanning spray or by dipping a photoshop CD in some tanning lotion and rubbing it on your skin. Soliel, Elixer, and Diva Tower beds and booths await in the UV rooms, where clients can soak in rays through adjustable face lamps and high- and low-pressure body lamps. For an extra treat, three kinds of KBL beds not only deliver sunshine, but also aromatherapy and satellite radio. After their tanning session, customers can darken their newfound glow at the hydration station, designed to burn calories and improve skin’s overall appearance.
After years spent working as an aesthetician who occasionally offered tanning services to her clients, Basia Kraul decided to fully dedicate herself to the tanning industry and founded Endless Summer Tan & Beauty Studio in August 1999. After more than a decade in business, the quaint studio offers visitors a variety of customizable UV beds, as well as spray tanning and collagen-boosting Rejuvenessence red-light therapy. A lineup of Basia skincare products keeps visages and physiques fresh, and a handful of hair and makeup services prime heads for special events or a night out on the town book clubbing.
Since its 1965 founding in Venice Beach, California, Gold's Gym has dotted the globe with more than 600 locations where professional athletes and exercise newbies gather under the umbrella of personal strength. Nearly 3.5 million Gold's members chart and aim for their fitness peaks, perspiring beneath the gaze of certified personal trainers or pedaling beside peers at cycling sessions. In a diverse lineup of group classes, patrons strengthen cores, finger-paint pictures of ninjas in martial arts, and amp up heart rates with INSANITY routines. Many Gold's Gym locations stockpile futuristic amenities, such as cardio machines with individual iPod docks and televisions that help keep patrons motivated.
The personal trainers at Big Sky Fitness cut frustration from the range of emotions their clients experience. That's because their X-factor coaching is grounded in science, ensuring that exercisers reach their goals if they stick to the regimen. Group fitness classes act as a helpful add-on to the personal-training sessions, as do nutritious shakes from the Shake Bar.
The Beauty Bar’s continuously educated aesthetic duo of Adriana and Sierra, a makeup artist and stylist, tag teams unwieldy tresses and leaves skin looking sun-smooched with a roster of salon services. Specializing in readying faces for weddings, Sweet 16 parties, and other celebrations, Adriana harnesses the light feel and even finish of airbrushed makeup, imbuing cheeks with a hue as rosy as an embarrassed baby. Alternatively, Sierra styles and colors hair to highlight each client's features and adds length to locks with Fusion hair extensions. Portraits of Audrey Hepburn and Marilyn Monroe preside over the chandelier-lit styling space, or staff members go mobile, toting their own kits, chair, and lighting to primp at a client's home or in their neighbor's tornado shelter.
With a focus on safe and healthy skincare, Caribbean Tan bronzes and rejuvenates pallid body plains with pristine, state-of-the-art technology. UV-free red-light therapy stimulates lazy metabolisms and spruces up sagging skin with help from penetrating LED light rays and subliminal messages from L.L. Cool J. Deep layers of collagen and elastin are stimulated by the process, firming the outer surface and improving overall skin suppleness. The crimson beams can also help to reduce existing blemishes and fine lines, correct sun damage, and counteract naturally green complexions.
The pristinely clean premises of Always Tan sparkle with the beds, sprays, and lotions necessary to achieve a perfectly darkened pelt. Fans and headphones lie waiting inside the shop’s private tanning rooms, where reflector-light beds gradually bronze physiques until they acquire a sun-kissed glow or a marriage proposal from a Rodin sculpture. UV–free Norvell tanning solutions fly from the hands of certified tech Christine Andro as she deftly spritzes faces and bodies with streak-free color.
It's understatement to say Trendsetters of Cheshire's owner Joan Morgan knows her way around a salon chair. After all, the Paul Mitchell–trained stylist has been brandishing her scissors for more than 19 years, 15 of which were spent in management. She even flaunts her expertise outside of the salon as an educator and advisor for Joico/ISO's and Beth Minardi's signature product lines. The impressiveness doesn't end with the owner—the other expert stylists remain on the cutting edge of the latest trends and industry techniques, too. In addition to trimming hair and rooting out long-lost hair picks from the 1970s, the talented staffers can add color, perform chemical treatments, and oversee advanced procedures such as Awapuhi KeraTriplex frizz-nixing treatments. The salon menu even extends to airbrush tanning and waxing, so customers can put the finishing touches on their new looks in one fell swoop.
Tommy’s Tanning offers customers more than two dozen bronzing options, from single-session spray tans for special occasions to yearly memberships inside five levels of tanning beds. The vertical and horizontal beds imbue skin with color while cooling faces and playing music for a more comfortable tanning session. For UV-free color, VersaSpa spray-tanning booths coat the skin in a streak-free glow, all while the client stands in a comfortable, wide-open interior.
Beach House Tanning features numerous tanning options—beds, booths, spray tanning, and airbrushing—and a team of certified technicians on hand to help clients navigate them all. For an even, full-body tan, a 12-minute stint in a black energy bed should suffice—160-watt lamps and six facial lamps produce a rich, all-over tan, and full-body air conditioning keeps things comfortable. The S-Class beds add a touch of spa-like extravagance thanks to an aromatherapy feature, which pipes in scents that may evoke visions of a tropical beach or an exotic new car. In addition to its tanning beds, Beach House Tanning also offers VersaPro spray tanning and airbrush tanning, which can be customized to meet each client’s unique skin type.

Paradis Island Tan shifts skin shades with an assortment of indoor tanning options, including beds, standup booths, and UV-free Mystic Tan equipment. Traditional tanning beds bronze bodies with four levels of equipment that begin with 15-minute beds and booths and progress up to the 22,000-watt FutureSun HP bed, which boasts 20 high-pressure lights, four bulbs dedicated to the face and neck, and a 1-ton air-conditioning unit. Mystic Tan booths cover epidermises in DHA-enhanced sunless-tanning solution with the help of MagneTan technology, which polarizes the microparticle mist to make it cling to bodies in a uniform coat. As Insta-Color Bronzer provides a temporary pop of pigmentation, DHA particles in the mist seal in a longer-lasting tan that won't wash off in the shower or during jury duty in Atlantis.
At Lindsey's Treatment Room at The Hair Studio at Four Corners, licensed aesthetician Lindsey Flanagan dispenses sage skincare advice and revitalizes visages with 30- to 60-minute facials. A classic facial begins with a skin analysis, during which Lindsey identifies each face's skin type and astrological sign. Steam helps to open pores as a deep cleanse and exfoliation infuse skin with invigorating Bioelements products. A pumice-peel facial helps to diminish wrinkles, fade acne scars, and discourage dead skin cells from writing tell-all autobiographies, and an acne-clearing facial helps to unclog pores. Patrons can opt to smooth eye areas with a cooling eye-treatment upgrade ($5 extra) or moisturize dry hands with a paraffin hand treatment ($10 extra).
Haircuts and highlights are only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to pampering clients at PeterAshley Hair Salon & Day Spa. Trained massage therapists work out tense muscles, and aestheticians extract dirt and loose change from pores during facials. A nail technician is also on hand to dispense mani-pedis.
The friendly Smart Tan-certified staffers at My Tan Factory point patrons in the direction of UV beds that build tans in 10- to 15-minute sessions. My Tan Factory offers relaxing horizontal beds with amenities such as misters and air conditioning for comfort, and vertical booths for individuals who prefer to tan while practicing the yoga tree pose. The salon's resident airbrush expert has spray-tanned more than 1,000 people over the course of four years, and accelerates drying times with a standup drying booth.
