In 2001, the first iTAN Sun Spray Spa opened its doors. It had a simple goal?to make clients feel and look lovely with professional tanning services. Today, the spa has more than 30 Southern California franchises, each offering a slightly different assortment of teeth whitening, tanning beds, spray-tanning booths, and self-serve spa offerings.
The Smart Tan?certified staff prioritizes keeping up with tanning technology by stocking state-of-the-art tanning beds such as the Sun Angel, which uses sensors to customize a blend of UVA and UVB rays, practically eliminating overexposure. Many beds come equipped with stereo sound systems, misters, and fans. Just down the hall from these beauty gadgets, Mystic and airbrush machines bronze limbs without UV rays, and self-administered spa treatments dispense relaxing red-light facials, infrared-heat bodywraps, and aqua massages.
Baking in the sun can lead to premature wrinkles and skin cancer. With this knowledge in mind, Tabatha Reece founded H-2 Glow Spray Tanning. Reece wanted her customers to be able to get a convenient tan and feel confident without the hassle or dangers of other forms of tanning. In her organic spray-tan solutions, she uses vitamins, plant extracts, and other anti-aging properties. After each session, skin is glowing, hydrated, and healthy. Before entering the booth, Reece helps each client feel relaxed and secure to avoid any Ross Geller moments.
The teal-tinged walls of SunTraders Tanning Company, reminiscent of the softly lapping waters of a secluded beach, discreetly conceal the salon’s professional tanning equipment. Level 1, 2, and 3 beds evenly bronze skin and dimes trying to pass as pennies in succinct, 9- to 20-minute sessions. SunTraders also houses a Mystic Tan booth, which disperses three levels of sunless-tanning solution through a fine nozzle, ensuring even, full-body coverage.
Tanning Options makes it easy to adopt a golden glow without
lounging for hours under the hot sun. Instead, patrons can ditch pale skin with quick trips inside multi-level tanning beds, in VersaSpa spray tanning booths that mist bodies with a
quick-drying formula without leaving unsightly streaks or polka dots, as well as custom spray tans. And, for those who want to really show off their new tan, the shop also has a boutique filled with jewelry, sunglasses, and accessories available for purchase, as well as a selection of body wraps to help clients slim down.
Before even stepping inside a tanning bed, clients at Electric Beach Tanning can get a head-start on the perfect bronze. The experienced staff offers a skin consultation to determine the most appropriate tanning products for clients during tanning sessions. Alternatively, spray tans are available for those who wish to create sun-kissed skin without UV rays.
The tanning experts at Sun Shy Airbrush Tanning help clients develop beach-ready bronze skin with airbrush-applied mists of tanning solution. The staff uses different formulas based on each client's current skin condition and preferred outcome, with solutions designed to cultivate both light, sun-kissed looks and full-bodied, dark tans.
