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.

Mix and match at Salon Cherie and spend a blissful afternoon transforming yourself non-lycanthropically. Cleanse deep pores and exfoliate your not-so-secret identity mask with a Bioelements facial comprised of natural and organic ingredients. Your freshified face will go well with a lock-strengthening conditioner, shampoo, and style. You can also completely reinvent your look from the shoulders up (unless your hair is beyond shoulder length or you are a giraffe) with a precision haircut before complementing it with cleanly waxed brows. Or wax your eyebrows off, shave your head, but leave brow-shaped bangs high above the eyes in preparation for an upcoming spoiled surprise party. These are just a couple of the possible permutations; there's absolutely no mathematical way to ascertain how many more there are.
The certified airbrush technicians at Bronze n' Shimmer enhance skin's natural glow with natural, beachy color that warms skin for up to 10 days. Staffers use a hand-held airbrushing device to coat bodies in a head-to-toe solution specially mixed to complement each client's natural coloring. The lightly scented spray contains FDA-approved ingredients that harmlessly react with skin proteins to build up a natural-looking bronze that's free from the orange streaks that result from other tanning sprays, lotions, and tropical vacation-themed magic markers. The misting process takes approximately 10 minutes, after which clients in search of a darker, more long-lasting shade can pay an extra fee and opt for a double coat of pigment.
