A fresh tan often indicates that someone has just returned from an exotic, faraway beach, but with Jen's Mobile Spray Tanning, guests can get a bronzed look without stepping out their front door. The cosmetic nomads bring spray-tan solution and nourishing salves from Aviva, Playboy, and Norvell to beautify complexions with custom, in-home airbrush tanning sessions. Jen's airbrush technicians apply the solutions evenly, leaving behind a natural-looking tan that takes seven or more days to fade.
Heralded in Tanning Trends magazine, True Colors Tanning introduces skin to advanced bronzing technologies at a number of Louisville-area and southern Indiana locations. Each of the five levels of standup and lie-down ultraviolet-tanning beds is equipped with specialized cooling systems and ergonomic surfaces to maximize client comfort. Alternatively, experienced staffers can apply airbrushed tans or spray tans by Australian Gold in the time it takes to count 180 seconds using a laser-guided system.
In every private tanning room at Sun Spot, a shelf and hangers ensconce clothes and satchels. Shoes flop to the floor next to comfortable seating, slipping from the feet of patrons adjusting the volume on personal AM/FM stereos-CD players before the UV bed coaxes out melanin. The UV beds range across six levels of tanning power and sport adjustable body fans so guests can stay cool or find an excuse to redesign the north wing of a house of cards. A parade of clients wanders from VersaSpa booths, which darken skin with a bronzing elixir infused with custom color and moisturizer designed to hide the effects of aging. Slipping out past swaying bamboo plants, visitors pass beneath infrared slimming machines and glass shelves that brim with a rainbow of sun-luring lotions from Norvell and Devoted Creations.
At Tans By Tina, spray tan artists paint clients in a golden hue of choice. One hour after a careful bronzing that hugs all contours to create a slimming effect, clients can shower and watch the tan develop over the next 24 hours. The tan, itself, lasts up to seven days. To make the event a social one, Tans By Tina also offers onsite spray tan parties, ideal for showers, bachelorette parties, and birthdays.
Sun Tanz Tanning's clean, spa-inspired environment is equipped with five types of UV-tanning beds, customized sunless-tanning services, and a spread of body-glowing lotions. The spray-tan option buffs pigmentless physiques with a golden, sunless tan without harmful UV rays or hearing the sun's curse-laden whispers. Applied by the steady hand of a trained tan technician in less than 20 minutes, the customized spray session uses an alcohol-free, DHA-infused solution that is designed to create a natural glow reminiscent of summers spent on the beach or winter vacations spent on the sun. Pale patrons can sit in on six faux sunsoaks from any of the bronzing cocoons, such as the standup bed for an even tan or the Tanses TX-52 Mega bed for optimal color in the shortest amount of time.
Some tanning professionals are content to let machines do their work for them, but not the tanning experts at Spray Tans Express. Instead, they apply each and every spray tan by hand, using a manual spray gun to spritz physiques with an odorless formula rich in skin-softening vitamin E and aloe. By eschewing the spray-tan booth, Spray Tans Express ensures each client's tan is applied evenly and without the type of unflattering lines created by lying in a tanning bed or sleeping in the shade of a hunk of swiss cheese. What's more, the formula reacts with the natural amino acids in the skin to create a custom, natural-looking glow, and it won't expose bodies to the potentially dangerous or wrinkle-causing effects of UV rays.
