Inside South Beach Tanning Salon, powerful tanning beds emit a science-fictional blue glow as they await soon-to-be-bronzed bodies. In addition to high-powered beds, the salon houses standup booths such as The Starship and The VHR. Boasting certifications from Smart Tan and the National Tanning Training Institute, the salon's knowledgeable staff helps guide clients to the most fitting tanning devices.
The Salon at GLOW splits its insides between a hair salon and tanning salon. Over on the hair end, stylists cuts classic and modern styles on children and adults. The stylists infuse strands with new all-over hues and add pops of color with highlights and ombre-effect dye jobs. On the tanning side, private rooms offer three levels of tanning beds outfitted with face panels that ensure ears and tonsils are equally darkened during each 12-minute session; a standup booth tans skins using 180-watt bulbs for eight minutes at a time.
With five tanning booths and three Level 3 tanning beds, Indian Summer Tanning Spa Ltd. makes it easier than ever to maintain a summer-like glow year round. Each booth and bed is FDA-approved and entirely devoid of carbohydrates and builds tans that may be aided by the shop's selection of moisturizers, lotions, and tanning accelerators. For those who prefer to steer clear of UV rays altogether, private rooms host spray tans by appointment, and skin is coated in a flawless finish using oil-free, alcohol-free, and paraben-free formulas from Aviva Labs. These same formulas were used to create a healthy, bronzed sheen on the 2012 Dancing with the Stars contestants. The hypoallergenic solutions create sun-kissed shades that develop over 24 hours and typically last 7–10 days, depending on how often the client exfoliates and moisturizes his or her skin.
