Each of Hollywood Tans' 140-plus locations, scattered from coast to coast, houses UV tanning booths that allow patrons to tan while standing for 8–11 minutes. With an average of 15 hygienic booths per salon, patrons rarely encounter waiting times and can stop in without an appointment. Hollywood Tans also offers UV-free methods of adding color to one's skin, including Mystic Tan's DHA-infused spray tans, tanning lotions, and public readings of guests' teenage diary entries.
The sun can be fickle. Cloudy days or chilly temperatures can all interfere with a day of sunbathing. At Bayside Tanning, none of these factors ever become problems for clients seeking the look of evenly sun-kissed skin. Before every appointment, staff members will work with patrons and recommend a customized regimen tailored to their skin type as well as their goals. The studio features four different levels of cutting-edge Ergoline beds, which can simply develop a base or provide a thorough, all-over tan without unsightly pressure points. Additionally, Bayside Tanning also offers UV-free alternatives for visitors seeking a naturally bronzed look in preparation for a special occasion.
California Dream Body's staff helps you get a suntan without spending hours in the sun. Their organic DHA airbrush system bathes skin with a healthy, UV-free glow that looks natural. With the It Works! weight-loss program, they help clients work off unwanted pounds through a mix of supplements and botanical-infused body wraps. The studio also carries a selection of Million Dollar tanning products that bronze skin at home, giving astronauts the ability to stay beach ready without taking skinny-dips in space.
As a trained aesthetician and makeup artist, Jade Olsen has seen it all, from glitter-dusted eyelids to fake gashes across the face. But more importantly, she has personally applied it all. It is with this hands-on experience that Jade has honed her aesthetic skills, which she showcases from within Tropical Sun Tanning Resort. During makeup applications, bare faces are dolled up with smoky eyes, glossy lips, and blushed cheeks using top-quality products from Urban Decay, Temptu, MAC, and Ben Nye. Lash lines are also given the royal treatment as Jade darkens and defines them by painlessly applying natural-looking extensions or miniature steel scepters to each individual lash.
Darque Tan's arsenal of beds, booths, and nourishing lotions infuses visiting bodies with sun-kissed color. Along with at least 20 tanning beds, each location brims with tan-savvy staff members—each certified through the International Smart Tan Network—who can work with you to customize a program based on your tanning goals, skin type, and relation to black-and-white movie starlets. Sessions take place in private rooms that line a column-flanked hallway, where five different levels of UV beds give skin the perfect level of tanning. Mystic Tan and VersaSpa sunless-tanning systems imbue clients with a hydrating, natural-looking glow, which can be customized according to skin tone, desired shade, and spirit animal. A full-time cleaning staff keeps each center in pristine conditions by referencing a 50-point inspection system. Most locations have books, televisions, and kids’ play areas to keep children entertained while adults are bronzing.
