Skin Deep Tanning, at first glance, looks more like an upscale boutique than a tanning salon. Leather chairs surround a flat-screen television in the lobby, and a brightly upholstered couch fits in amongst a selection of lotions for sale. Upon further exploration through the meticulously cleaned space, guests find a fleet of high-tech tanning equipment in private rooms in the back. Natural hardwood floors gleam in each room, reflecting light from the stand-up and traditional tanning beds that bronze skin for upcoming stints as a trophy designer’s model. Meanwhile, a VersaSpa booth automatically applies spray-on color that is UV-free. The knowledgeable staff can help clients devise a proper tanning schedule to get a healthy glow in time for special occasions.

Creative Cut Hair Studio molds hair into expertly sculpted 'dos with cutting, smoothing, and coloring services and professional products from brands such as Moroccanoil and Schwarzkopf. Foiling services ($50 for partial foiling; $60+ for full foiling) morph coiffures' chromatic registers by harnessing the highlighting powers of the sun into professional coloring formulas. Brazilian Blowout hair-smoothing treatments ($100–$200, depending on hair length) bust frizz out of hair as swiftly as the ghostbuster evicted old Mrs. Merriweather's ghost from the laundry hamper, leaving hair silky smooth. Smoothing stylists carefully bond the formaldehyde-free formula to hair, fortifying the cuticle in a soothing protein blanket; curl-quashing effects last up to 12 weeks.
TAN'R YOU was voted the Best Tanning in Milwaukee for 2008 and 2009 by CityVoters, who cited its accommodating facilities and fully air-conditioned tanning beds. A gold-colored floor ushers pale hides down a hallway of individual bronzing rooms stocked with top-of-the-line pigmentation machinery. The High Pressure MATRIX bed is an import from Italy that tans in 12 minutes while treating clients to music from its CD player / stereo and using high-pressure negotiating tactics to send paleness packing. For those who have already positioned their real sleeping bed directly under their bedroom's sunniest window, the Cabana Mist tanning booth provides a convenient vertical service while evenly painting the body with smooth shades of spring and summer.
Salon Brookfield turns on Vitamin D faucets with 12 tanning beds, including three high-pressure Ultra Bronze beds that produce less than 1% UVB. During the sessions, customers choose to recline in comfort for 24 minutes on a lay-down tanning bed or step into a standup bed for a 9-minute tan that re-creates the experience of being surrounded by a mob of fluorescent bulbs. High-pressure beds use specialized lamps to reduce UVB, creating a long-lasting and deep tan without the risk of burning, drying, premature aging, or morphing into a cartoon sun with sunglasses. Salon Brookfield is open six days a week for maximum bronze potential, with a knowledgeable staff on hand to answer any questions regarding tanning, booths, or products.
Even when the cold winds howl across icy winter streets, clients who emerge from Sun Seekers By Rosie look as though they've just returned from a tropical vacation or a long nap on an overpass in Florida. Guests stock up on glow in the salon's five levels of professional tanning beds, each equipped with powerful UV bulbs. Others credit their bronzed bodies to the salon's Mystic Tanning booth, which uses a UV-free spray solution to cast a natural-looking tan. To help clients care for their newly tanned skin, the salon peddles a variety of advanced lotions from top brands such as Ed Hardy and Devoted Creations.
