The epidermal experts at Sun of A Beach Tanning cover bodies in sun-kissed shades with a wide range of sunless systems, beds, and tanning products, proving there are easier ways to get a tan than replacing your bed with a pile of flashlights or letting the sun bear-hug you. Develop a head turning-tint in the Sun Capsule Eclipse stand-up bed, its seven-minute treatment time rendering it ideal for quick touchups during lunch breaks or right before parties demanding you to dress as your favorite bronze currency. For a UV-free tan, Sun of a Beach's expert certified airbrush technicians coat hides in Norvell sunless products. The studio then helps clients maintain their golden hues with an airbrush kit, which includes pre-tan body scrub and a cleansing body wash alongside a color-extending moisturizer to ensure that your tan doesn't fade prematurely. Airbrush sessions require reservations, so call ahead for an appointment.
