SMART TAN SALONS FasterSafer UVplus earns its acclaim by sun-kissing hides with an array of tanning services, from beds and facial tanners to UV-free spray tanning. An educated staff of body bronzers guides patrons to their best tanning option after a complimentary skin-type analysis, which determines skin sensitivity and penchant for turning sunshine into superpowers. One of the beds, standup booths, or facial tanners gently shades skin with high-pressure bulbs while keeping bodies cool with air-conditioning, entertaining ears with iPod music selections, and boosting the tongue's self-esteem with voice-guided controls. Alternatively, spray booths coat skin in an even, natural-looking bronze without UV rays. Clients relax amid the cosmopolitan vibes emanating from the stone mantel fireplace and leather couches and take advantage of complimentary amenities such as towels, aromatherapy, and manicure UV protectors to ensure that painted finger portraits of Winston Churchill don't fade.

It's a clean and comfortable salon that specializes in helping first-time tanners get a golden glow, perfect for hiding in the suitcase in Pulp Fiction or tricking cars at intersections into slowing down.

The team at Soleil Tan & Spa is more reliable than the sun itself. Whereas that celestial orb might hide behind clouds for days, the spa's technicians reliably bronze bodies with services that range from UV tanning to spray tans that imbue skin with customized shades of color.

But tanning only scratches the surface of what's possible at this spa. Waxing can further prepare your body for a trip to the beach, and Swedish or deep-tissue massages can calm you down after that trip's emotionally fraught Seagull Incident. The same goes for relaxing mani-pedis, during which nail technicians spruce up hands and feet with regular or chip-resistant polish.
