When and how did you first develop a passion for your work?
I've been a sun worshipper my entire life, but started to see the sun's damaging effects. I discovered spray tanning and fell in love with the instant bronze color and the natural look. It was an easy transition from painting to airbrush tanning.
What is the best reaction you?ve ever gotten from a client?
"I LOVE IT." and " I'm telling all my friends."
Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
The difference between my business and other salons is that you can shower and exfoliate here, so you can do a same-day tan. I also offfer a relaxing "Bee's Knees" cocktail before or after your tan.
Professionally trained in the art of ultraviolet light, the staff at Aruba Tan is full of experts when it comes to sunless tanning and infrared saunas. Armed with an array of lie-down tanning beds that range in intensity, technicians work with each guest to ensure that they tan safely based on their skin type and the extent to which they wish to mock ancient sun gods. In addition to the beds, techs also transform alabaster skinscapes into bronzed masterpieces with a variety of spray-tanning services. During these treatments, they douse skin in a steady stream of instantly drying solutions that adhere to superficial proteins in the skin and downshift the hues. Beyond tanning services, the studio also helps guests detoxify, ease pain, and boost weight-loss programs with their namesake smartsweat infrared-saunas, which send beams of heat energy deep into skin to help mend a range of bodily issues.
Unlike regular saunas, SmartSweat's infrared saunas do not create a choking humidity or rely on black-market dragons for power. Instead, a gentle heat encourages sweating to discharge harmful toxins while boosting circulation and aiding weight-loss efforts. Available in fitness clubs and tanning salons across Texas, infrared saunas help keep clients healthy and relaxed while easing the discomfort caused by chronic pain.
Certified aesthetician Rachel Spillman believes that the face is the most interesting and beautiful part of the body—thus, it deserves special treatment. To insure that all of her processes are tailored to the individual's distinct skin type, Rachel feverishly attends training seminars and stays up to date on dermatological trends. In Rachel’s private studio, clients may seek her expertise with an organic lavender or chamomile facial, swift wax, all-natural spray tan, or hair removal by sugaring.
The staff at Darque Tan learned the science of tanning through Smart Tan certification, which they rely on to design efficient, safe regimes for each client's skin type. Five levels of PCTan beds and booths can bronze skin with as few as 12 minutes of UV exposure while enveloping skin in cooling mist. Automated airbrush tanning in VersaSpa or Mystic Tan booths create even, natural-looking color that masks scars and stretch marks. Darque Tan's pursuit of convenience is further exemplified with business hours that span seven days a week, a minimum of 20 beds per location, and rec rooms where kids can read and watch TV. A crew of professional cleaners details each of the facilities according to a rigorous 50-point inspection and tips gleaned from reading Mr. Clean's LiveJournal.
