Hollywood Tans, one of the nation’s largest chains of tanning salons, turns dermises gold with a special alchemic process known as Tanetics. Skin specialists consider each customer’s tanning goal, skin tone, and skin sensitivity before helping them choose the perfect skin-shading procedure. Four clean and comfortable types of stand-up UV tanning-booth options filter out most pestiferous UVB rays while speedily darkening pigment. Pricing varies, but five 11-minute bouts inside Hollywood Tans’ HT42 booth ($30) are enough to leave any pelt polished with a glossy base tan. For Daphnes fleeing Apollo, a Mystic spray-tan booth (starting at $19) depales pasty parchment with a misty coat of bronze that can last 5–7 days. The Mystic’s cartridges can be changed to allow users great flexibility in choosing their preferred skin patinas, or they can be purchased in bottle form for do-it-yourself home applications (starting at $19). A plethora of lotion is available to give your skin a longer lasting hue and moisturize your dermis until it's a glowing beacon of hydrated human hide.
The beauty professionals of Escape Your Day Salon maintain an atmosphere that's as relaxing as it is whimsical. Not only do they groom and polish human nails, but they also dress-up dogs’ paws, decking each claw with color. They guide patrons to a hot-pink room for UV tanning sessions and seat them on mint-hued chairs for salon services, such as coloring treatments, perms, and beard trims. They keep shelving units stocked with professional-grade products for hair, skin, and nails, outfitting clients and bull mastiffs with the shampoos and polishes they'll need to maintain their new looks.
At more than 140 locations across the country, the staff at Hollywood Tans maintains an average of 15 booths so its customers need not wait or make appointments for their tanning sessions. Each HT-manufactured, proprietary booth is set up vertically for a more sanitary experience, during which high-performance bulbs bronze bodies in less time than standard models. In addition to UV tanning, Mystic Tan vestibules send out mists of bronzers and moisturizers in one of four settings.
LA Bronze Ultra Luxe Tanning Studios service tanners on the go and provides a respite for those looking to relax. Inside stand-up booths, clients remain on their feet while up to 60 bulbs create a 360-degree tan. Clients may also choose to stand up for a twelve-minute session inside a warm capsule or choose a bronze hue to have misted on their skin and settling into a sun-kissed glow in three hours. Those looking to enhance their tans can purchase power lotions, bronzers, accelerators, and cooling lotions from the salon’s collection of tanning products.
With a deep knowledge of hairstyling techniques, skincare products by Bioelements, and skin-burnishing tanning beds, the stylists at Bahama Salon & Spa keep patrons looking their best from head to toe. Certified cosmetologists specialize in replicating trendy hairstyles and infusing strands with rich color. A certified nail technician decorates hands and feet with Shellac polish or 3-D nail art.
Ultra Visions’s team of dedicated aestheticians snips locks into precision cuts, coats nails with bright polish, and tends to skinscapes with facial treatments. Skilled staffers also perm, straighten, and defrizz manes, remove unwanted fuzz with Epilfree hair removal, and darken dermises with tanning sessions, which create a healthy glow akin to the radiance emanating from a potato light bulb.
