Sunroom Tanning Salon offers color-seeking patrons a clean, friendly environment filled with a variety of UV-full and UV-free options to help them to get their glow on year round. Relax for up to 20 minutes in any of the salon’s low-pressure beds, which allow body bakers to bask in their faux sun rays without pestering them to buy a timeshare. Those seeking color synthetically can step into a fully automated Mystic Tan booth, where physiques are sprayed noggin-to-piggies with a specially formulated DHA-and-aloe-vera spray. Designed to react naturally with skin to create a healthy, streak-free hue, the depth of the spray tan is decided by each client, allowing him or her to transition from glowing to dark. Spray tans are completed and dry within 3–5 minutes, though patrons should avoid showering or volunteering for dunk tanks for a minimum of four hours post-spray.
With locations spanning Oklahoma City, Midwest City, and Norman, Sandy Beaches Tanning helps keep Sooner State bodies looking summer-ready all year round. Beds by brands such as Ovation, Solaris, and Acclaim HP comprise four tiers of conventional bulb tanning, or Mystic Tan airbrush booths rely upon the body's own magnetic properties to attract the customized formula in a way that helps it adhere evenly to every curve, crease, and prime meridian. To help clients keep up their sun-drenched demeanor between visits, Sandy Beaches also stocks each location's shelves with a large selection of tanning lotions, which customers can learn more about thanks to a biweekly lotion review posted on the business's facebook page.
Right down the road from the Oklahoma University dorms lies Rock Paper Scissor Hair Studio, a salon where stylists cut, color, and style hair with premium products from brands such as Paul Mitchell. The Paul Mitchell name has influenced the salon's personnel as well as its inventory, since the three-person staff includes a graduate of the brand's school, not to mention a specialist in long hair and updos and a makeup and skincare whiz. Inside the salon itself, clients recline in comfortable leather chairs in front of full-length mirrors.
While the sun spends most of its day in the sky, it still finds time to hang out in The Riviera Tanning Spa, teaching five different levels of Ergoline tanning beds how to bronze bodies with color that looks like it came from the star itself. From the Ambition bed’s beginner-friendly 120-watt bulbs to the Excellence 800’s simmering 520-watt heaters, tanners of all levels can boost golden hues in as little as 10 minutes. Thanks to their large facility, Riveria can accommodate a high influx of individuals without requiring appointments. Their Autobronzer system also reduced peaked appearances without UV exposure, spraying skin with three levels of sunless solutions that add color that won’t run, streak, or turn blue when placed under a black light.
Brimming with potted plants and floral arrangements, Shear Madness showcases natural beauty—not only with its decor, but also with its styles. The salon's hairdressers cut and color locks to create flowing waves and multidimensional color. Meanwhile, tans from the studio’s beds look fresh from the beach, unlike tans from a repurposed waffle iron.
