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.
• For $10, you get one month of unlimited tanning (a $19.95 value). • For $25, you get one teeth-whitening session (a $50 value). • For $55, you get three months of red-light therapy (a $110 value). Acapulco Golden Tans & Salon cradles clients with luminous treatments designed to brighten both smiles and birthday suits. With one month of unlimited tanning, clients can enjoy 20-minute sessions in the SantaBarbara bed, which offers solar simulation with air conditioning and a Pioneer sound system. Acapulco Golden Tan & Salon's professional staff receives full training in UV-light administration, ensuring that clients do not tarnish while perfecting their penny impressions.
Tanning wears many glowing faces at Aloha Tan, where beds and sprays gild patrons' pelts with varying levels of toasty intensity. Bronze-seeking customers may turn up the sun dial, amping up traditional bed-tanning potency from level one (a $39.95 value per month) up to level four (a $59.95 value per month). Or opt for a technician-applied airbrush tan to gain a ray-free glow, donning a rich caramel exterior without the beach's UV rays or demoralizing sandcastle-construction competitions.
A.J. at Hair Emporium pampers clients from head to toe with an arsenal of beautifying and relaxing services. The Garden State–inspired Jerseylicious mani-pedi applies a glamorous foil finish to trimmed fingernails as well as scrubbed and groomed toenails, and lasts about one week, dazzling passersby and temporarily stunning podiatrists. Durable gel polish adorns digits after a Shellac manicure, and cleansed and toned faces luxuriate under a seaweed mask during the 30-minute express facial. The one-hour body wrap commences with a bow-to-stern body scrub, followed by an ambrosial mud mask and moisturizer. While relaxers unwind in their earthen cocoons, skilled fingers massage the scalp and third eye for 15 minutes.
Midnight Sun, which was voted one of the country’s top 250 salons by Looking Fit, has bronzed the celebrity skins of Ashlee Simpson, Jessica Biel, and Carrot Top. The top-notch sunnery offers six different levels of high-quality beds and bulbs. If you'd like to give your skin a lustrous, fresh-off-the-beach glow without exposing it to tanning beds, beach bullies, or the powerful rays of our binary suns, opt for an excursion inside a comfortable Mystic Tan machine, which quickly coats skin with a special tanning solution.
Sunsations Tanning Salon, which has catered to beauty-pageant contestants such as Miss Oklahoma Alicia Clifton, gilds limbs with three levels of tanning beds and airbrush tanning. Clients recline in a traditional or wide-body bronzing bed or stay vertical in a standup bed while inside a large private room.
In addition to tanning, Sunsations offers facials and massages by its aesthetician, Shea. During signature facials, Shea deeply cleanses pores to remove built-up dirt and grime and any glitter left over from New Year’s Eve. She also kneads bodies with custom massage techniques, releasing toxins and turning muscles into butter.
