As the second planet from the sun, Venus would be a sunbather's dream if not for its pesky acidic clouds and 500-degree temperatures. Thankfully, the technicians at Venus Tan have found an easier way to deliver bronze colors inspired by Earth's sister planet. Here, powerful beds and booths from Ergoline and Sundash banish paleness in sessions as quick as 8 minutes. Skin can be moisturized and tans augmented through lotions from brands such as Australian Gold and Designer Skin. The studio also offers sunless tanning in the form of Mystic sprays, which leaves behind even, streak-free color without exposure to irksome UV rays.
The staff at Sparkling Bronze Airbrush Tanning specializes in UV-free tans, pairing each patron with a certified airbrush technician who expertly gilds skin with bronzer for a natural, healthy color. During 15-minute sessions, technicians wield handheld airbrush dispensers that emit a micro-fine DHA mist harvested from raw sugar cane. The odorless, alcohol-free concoction encourages a golden-brown tan that most clients find lasts for 7–10 days. Patrons care for their tans by abstaining from using alpha-hydroxy lotions, taking hot baths, and wearing sandpaper suits. Guests can opt to be tanned at the salon, or inquire about having a staff member meet them for a mobile tan around the Dallas area.
Sunkissed Tan Spa’s arsenal of equipment and tanning services may seem daunting at first. But visitors need only look to the closest staff member for advice, since each one is certified by the National Tanning Training Institute, to know how each technique will affect the skin and which exposure times are right for each client. The UV lamps that line each Ergoline, Soltron, and Sunstar bed imbue natural, long-lasting color, while UV-free hues from Norvell and Mystic Tan booths keep skin safe from the sun’s rays and infectious John Denver tunes. And though the company specializes in tanning, its teeth-whitening services are hardly an afterthought—the swift smile-boosting power of the spa’s Zoom! and BlueMagic whitening systems made them the official teeth-whitening company of Miss Dallas 2009 and Miss Teen Dallas 2009.
Tan Room’s name may be a bit misleading, because a single room could never hold all the equipment the full-service tanning salon carries. High-pressure beds and standup booths cast even rays of UV light across skin, gradually infusing it with bronze tones. The salon also offers UV-free tanning in Mystic Tan booths. This healthy alternative mists skin with a bronzing spray to create a natural-looking tan without the risks inherent to lowering oneself into a deep fryer.
At Electric Beach Tans, four levels of tanning beds save patrons the hassle of making a trip to the beach or buying a bootleg sun to hang in your basement. Customers can slather on products that boost indoor tanning sessions, or opt for spray tan sessions with custom-blended Norvell solution.
