Although a day on the beach is a great way to get tan, sun seekers don't always want to wait until the first balmy day of the summer. At Sun City Tanning Salon, four levels of UV bed tanning help coax out the skin's melanin, which results in a golden color without running through a pollen-covered slip 'n' slide. As an alternative, VersaSpa spray tans mist the body with a bronze shade that can last up to 10 days.

The tanning experts at Color Me Tan keep hides sporting golden hues year-round with their multiple levels of UV tanning beds. Their spray-tan booths, on the other hand, eschew ultraviolet rays and instead use tanning solution to coat epidermal expanses with a natural-looking, streak-free glow. The shop equips visitors with products that aid in the tanning process on beaches or at home. Aside from body bronzing, Color Me Tan further beautifies bodies with teeth-whitening treatments and noninvasive red-light therapy, which makes mature skin appear more youthful and less prone to discussing mortgage rates at parties.

Sundance Tanning's experts know that although fresh tans can make clients feel better, the process itself isn't glamorous. That’s why along with goggles and lotion, they provide towels, moist wipes, deodorant, and even hair spray—everything clients might need to feel refreshed after tanning.

Licensed stylist Ema Olsen further helps clients feel beautiful by transforming tresses with face-flattering cuts and adding dimension with highlights. While styling hair in the quiet salon area at the back of Sundance Tanning, she uses high-end Schwarzkopf products, such as the BC Moisture Kick intensive-hydration treatment.

The staff at Sun Solution may ask you to remove your shoes when you enter the shop, but it’s not because they’re concerned about dirt. Instead, they want you to feel the soothing heat that rises from the heated tile floors that cover the entryway. These staffers are experts at using gentle heat and light to their clients’ advantage. The infrared body wraps help clients detox and manage stress and pain. These body wraps also encourage weight loss.

Sun Solution has provides tanning services. They use Smart Tan certifications to chart the best tanning plan for their skin type and color goals. They then select options from a fleet of equipment that includes lay-down, standup, and upside-down tanning booths, as well as a Versa Spa spray-tanning machine, which administers a full-body spray tan in 46 seconds. Clients looking to ensure a deeper, more even tan can opt to start by hopping in the studio's hydration station, where a 20- to 30-minute session can help promote better absorption of nutrients and products, and also help skin adopt a softer, firmer appearance.

A wildly successful alternative to traditional day spas—its more than 300 locations blanket 36 states and half a dozen countries—Planet Beach Contempo Spa is a futuristic relaxation station where state-of-the-art machines administer all the spa and tanning services. These friendly automatons sometimes replace familiar treatments, as in the Luminous facial, a light-based service that delivers blemish-busting results similar to those of a conventional facial. But other equipment maps out new spa territory entirely: the Hydro-Derma Fusion chamber moisturizes the whole body with nutrient-rich steam in order to offset the effects of a dry climate or a rear-end collision with a salt truck. Other machines whiten teeth, spray tan skin, and massage muscles.

Planet Beach operates on a gym-style membership system, meaning that members purchase packages or pay flat monthly rates. As members spend more time at the spa, they get to know the helpful assistants who are always on hand to demonstrate how to use the equipment without activating its ability to cry.
