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.
Like any redhead, Jennifer Davis had intimate knowledge of the painful burns that would result when she tried to imbue her fair complexion with a sultry summer glow. Determined to help her fellow Texans achieve a sun-kissed hue without the damaging effects of tanning, Jennifer opened a mobile airbrush-tanning business that has since expanded to multiple salon hubs situated throughout the Dallas metro area.
Using a paraben-free, DHA solution, the salon’s certified airbrush technicians completely envelop frames in a shade tailored to skin tones, leaving a streak-free color that lets patrons avoid the attentions of lovelorn zebras. The tanning solution is applied and dry within 30 minutes, both illuminating bodily hues and covering skin imperfections such as blemishes, cellulite, and stretch marks during its two-week tenure on the skin. The salon also stocks a supply of Norvell products and airbrushing machines, allowing guests to maintain golden skin at home without replacing showerheads with arcade token machines.

Clients can also hop in the Hydration Station, a bed that locks in moisture before a trip to the new, upgraded Velocity tanning bed with low UVB rays. With a friendly staff and a commitment to efficiency and cleanliness, North Dallas tan helps salon-goers get in and out in less than 20 minutes.
