Tan Pro USA has been compensating for the less-than-ideal latitudinal coordinates of Ohio since 1998. It was then that they opened their first tanning outpost furnished with 30 UV beds, and they have since expanded operations to 43 stores throughout the state. They stock each location with ample tanning units, rendering appointments an archaic formality equivalent to gifting a sheep to your defense lawyer. After customers stroll in, they can slide into an Ergoline 1100, which boasts four ultra-performance facial tanners and two high-pressure shoulder tanners. Staffers advise which lotions enhance traditional tanning results along with explaining the benefits of the UV-free VersaSpa spray-tan booths. Harnessing infrared heat, VersaSpa booths impart a glow to entire physiques or targeted trouble areas, such as the inside of the armpits.
At all 25 TNT Tanning locations throughout northeast Ohio, clients tan hides a healthy golden hue with the latest tanning beds and spray-tan booths. While at the salon, they can peruse shelves lined with skincare and tanning products such as bronzing powders, tanning lotions, and sunless sprays. To enhance the contouring tanning achieves, they can also swaddle themselves in a Fit body wrap designed to burn calories and reduce body fat.
Max Tan manager Nikkie Forni knows how to tan—so much so, in fact, that she's the new spokesmodel for Supre Tan, a company that makes tanning lotions and products. A host of Supre Tan salves line the shelves behind Max Tan's stacked-slate front counter, where helpful staff members stand ready to help clients keep their complexion in midsummer form. Guests can bronze their bods in tanning beds fit for all skin tones, or opt for a UV-free tan with Antigua airbrush tanning services.
When asked what her favorite part of her job is, Yanirette—owner and operator of Yanirette Serene Skin Car—can't really narrow it down. "I love everything about my job," she says. She enjoys meticulously performing extractions and moisturizing pores just as much as she appreciates seeing the smiling faces that appear at the end of her treatments. Her clients tell her she has "angel hands," and while her heavenly digits get to work, she keeps up a natural flow of engaging conversation. She explains every step of her process to her clients, from how to use brands such as Dr. Grandel skincare to the intended effect of each step of her treatments.

Trusted beauty publications such as Allure, Shape, and Self have all put their stamp of approval on the South Seas airbrush spray-tan system. Perhaps that's because the spray tan only takes 10 minutes to apply, or maybe it's that the beachy glow lasts for up to 10 days. Regardless of the reason, the lauded spray tan is one service that draws tanners to Millennium Tanning. The spa's other services include five levels of bed tanning, teeth whitening, and slimming body wraps.
