Inside South Beach Tanning Salon, powerful tanning beds emit a science-fictional blue glow as they await soon-to-be-bronzed bodies. In addition to high-powered beds, the salon houses standup booths such as The Starship and The VHR. Boasting certifications from Smart Tan and the National Tanning Training Institute, the salon's knowledgeable staff helps guide clients to the most fitting tanning devices.
The Salon at GLOW splits its insides between a hair salon and tanning salon. Over on the hair end, stylists cuts classic and modern styles on children and adults. The stylists infuse strands with new all-over hues and add pops of color with highlights and ombre-effect dye jobs. On the tanning side, private rooms offer three levels of tanning beds outfitted with face panels that ensure ears and tonsils are equally darkened during each 12-minute session; a standup booth tans skins using 180-watt bulbs for eight minutes at a time.
Standup booths, lay-down beds, and VersaSpa tanning equipment line the private treatment rooms at TanFabulous, yielding many pathways to achieving a richer shade of skin. With four tiers of UV-tanning rays and three levels of spray-tanning mist to choose from, customers can pinpoint the exact hue of bronze they desire. The higher tiers of UV beds feature upgrades to enhance your tanning experience; among these, SunBreeze triple air-conditioning systems keep temperatures cool, aromatherapy infusions soothe the senses, and facial boosters send rays to hard-to-reach spots on the face and neck. The salon’s automated VersaSpa tanning booths spritz bodies with layers of bronzing solutions and drying jets of air. The DHA-based solutions couple with anti-aging moisturizers to ensure that skin retains the color of a deep-fried onion ring without its crunchy texture.
With five tanning booths and three Level 3 tanning beds, Indian Summer Tanning Spa Ltd. makes it easier than ever to maintain a summer-like glow year round. Each booth and bed is FDA-approved and entirely devoid of carbohydrates and builds tans that may be aided by the shop's selection of moisturizers, lotions, and tanning accelerators. For those who prefer to steer clear of UV rays altogether, private rooms host spray tans by appointment, and skin is coated in a flawless finish using oil-free, alcohol-free, and paraben-free formulas from Aviva Labs. These same formulas were used to create a healthy, bronzed sheen on the 2012 Dancing with the Stars contestants. The hypoallergenic solutions create sun-kissed shades that develop over 24 hours and typically last 7–10 days, depending on how often the client exfoliates and moisturizes his or her skin.
Spray Tans by Jen differs from its salon counterparts in one notable way—it isn’t a salon at all.
The company’s experienced tanning technician travels throughout Worcester County, taking her portable pop-up tent to clients’ homes or to their vacationing neighbors’ backyards. There, she uses a spray gun to mist an organic, paraben-free tanning formula evenly across skin. Each tan is customizable according to skin type, makeup routine, and desired level of darkness. The technician can also add the sweet scent of coconut or caramel to leave bodies smelling as good as they look.
Tropic Sun Tanning Salon keeps its patrons looking sun-kissed regardless of the season with a range of tanning beds and products. Three levels of beds and booths imbue a range of hues from light to deep bronze, while Mystic spray tans employ a safe skin-tinting solution rather than UV radiation.
