With multiple locations across the Los Angeles area, Cop-A-Tan has a tanning option to fit every customer. The salon offers more than a dozen ways to get bronzed. And if that's too many options to choose from, customers can turn to a staff that's been helping people achieve the perfect tan for more than 25 years. These experts work with clients to design the ideal tanning approach, stressing the importance of skincare, vitamins, and safety.
Once you have that bronze glow, you want it to last for as long as possible. So Cop-A-Tan features the Hydro-Fusion RX Hydration Station—it preps skin for either UV or Sunless Spa spray tans through a combination of steam, radiant heat, and oxygenated skincare products. The process results in a a deeper, longer-lasting tan.
U-CA-TAN is an area favorite, earning second place for Best Tanning in 2008 from CityVoters. Its Mystic Tan is the original and patented spray tan, bronzing and gilding bodies without UV in 30 seconds. Once a person steps into the booth, his or her whole body will be immediately saturated with an aloe-vera-based solution that bronzes humans like a pair of baby shoes. Around six hours later, the spray-on-awesome will develop into a golden, natural-looking tan that will inspire envy from beach bums and pool hobos. With proper care, hides can remain tanned and toned for several days, giving clients a temporary color that's better for the skin than standard sunning.
RejuveNation Body Wraps helps clients achieve beach-ready physiques with contouring body treatments and tanning services. Amid their space’s warm chocolate- and tangerine-hued walls, staffers pamper clients with herbal-infused wraps, designed to tone skin and gradually diminish cellulite and stretch marks leftover from weight gain or swallowing watermelons whole. Tanning experts then create bronzed masterpieces in the tanning booth, or direct clients to the salon’s own line of cleansers and firming lotions that they can use at home.
At Glow Waxing and Sugaring, licensed cosmetologist Libby Post goes the extra mile to ensure clients' comfort as she expertly shapes their brows or smooths their bikini lines. A complimentary numbing cream helps prevent pain during intimate waxing and sugaring treatments; afterwards, a steam towel treatment eliminates any lingering stickiness. Libby also observes high standards of hygiene, using antibacterial solution to cleanse all waxed areas after treatment and never, ever double-dipping. Glow Waxing and Sugaring is located inside Glow Tanning, which maintains a broad selection of powerful tanning beds and booths as well as suntan lotions, teeth-whitening gel, and other beautifying products.
Reaching a state of glowing relaxation is the goal at Tanning Spa and Zen Retreat, where services work to dispel stress and beautify at the same time. In offering both UV and spray tans, the spa's certified tanning specialists eschew the need to book a beach vacation or start a home roof-removal project. UV users can choose between horizontal and stand-up beds, while the spa's onsite shop outfits them with bronze-boosting lotions. In addition to tanning, the staff specializes in skincare such as waxing and facials, which range from classic treatments to peels and microdermabrasion. And finally, massage therapists administer Thai, Swedish, and even jet-lag-thwarting modalities.
Within the sleek black interior of Sun Elite Tan awaits a host of tanning beds and UV-free tanning equipment. The centerpiece of the collection is the Sun Angel bed, which contains an overexposure-preventing sensor, 52 UV lamps, high-pressure shoulder tanners, and an integrated sound system that lets guests listen to music or recordings of Alec Baldwin reciting pi to the billionth decimal. Alternatively, the salon’s technicians can customize Infinity Sun spray tans, applying even coats of bronze in about 20 minutes. No matter what treatments they select, guests can lounge in a modern waiting area with chic globe chandeliers and a flat-screen television.
