With four decades of experience to her name, Mitzi Sanders leads the staff at her welcoming Goodlettsville salon. Stocked with top-of-the-line products, the crew goes to work prettying up heads by rendering an extensive selection of tress-focused services, including color treatments, highlights, and extensions. But the focus isn't just on what tops the head: manicures and pedicures rejuvenate digits and facial waxing helps shape brows.
Bellevue Tanning Club harbors a fleet of 21 technologically advanced tanning units, all kept sparkling clean and decked out with fresh bulbs by a knowledgeable staff. Low-pressure beds beam UVA and UVB rays to build a solid base tan; high-pressure beds and standup units rapidly bronze bodies almost exclusively with UVA rays to minimize the risk of burning. While vitamin D washes over tanners, a built-in fan cools skin and an internal CD stereo system lets clients catch up on the latest hits and listen to self-released karaoke performances. For a speedier service that delivers a summery glow without the beach-style lounge experience, spray tanning quickly bronzes skin with a DHA sugar-based solution matched to skin tone.
Bellevue Tanning Club's tranquil décor, with walls painted periwinkle blue, white trellises, and tropical plants, recalls a sandy boardwalk on a sunny day. The staff also takes their services on the road to spray tan clients before noteworthy events, such as weddings, surprise parties, or surprise weddings.
The staff members of Tan USA Nashville pride themselves on taking care of their equipment, a lineup that includes five types of lie-down and standup tanning beds, as well as a Mystic Tan booth. Clients can purchase monthly packages or tanning credits, the latter of which can be used toward any bed without upgrade fees. To amplify the beds' effects, to improve tans, Tan USA supplies tanning lotions and premade stories about how much fun you had at the beach.
There's no shortage of rays to soak in at Hot Spot Tanning. The salon offers bed tanning, standup spray tanning, and even a mobile airbrush outfit. This breadth of bronzing options makes it easy to achieve a summery glow without going to the pool or that scary, sandy place where the land suddenly turns into water. In addition to darkening complexions, Hot Spot Tanning specializes in red-light therapy, which can help improve skin's tone and texture.
Sun Tan City's specially designed devices bathe bodies in an even, bronze glow. The tanning beds ($9-$34) apply a delicate balance of UVA and UVB rays to create the fun-in-the-sun look, with varying session durations depending on the bed's level of intensity -- fast, faster, fastest, or instant. The VersaSpa Sunless Tanning System ($34) can provide a natural, even-tonal transformation without the use of UV rays. Standing upright in the VersaSpa booth, your body will be gently misted with either a clear or bronze solution, which will then be combined with an anti-aging moisturizing skin treatment. Each booth is scientifically designed to provide a breathe-easy treatment and features an exhaust system to send the lingering mist out while sealing in skin's new shade. Finally, after a few minutes in the comfort air-dry system, your body will be dry to the touch.
If you opt for the Tour of the City package, you'll take a tinting flight across each of Sun Tan City's bed levels (fast tan, faster tan, fastest tan, and instant tan) and one timely trip inside a VersaSpa Sunless Tanning Booth, which provides a natural, even-tonal transformation. Clients can experience the five levels of the Tour of the City package in any order they wish. Standing upright in the VersaSpa booth, your body will be gently misted with either a clear or bronze solution, possibly combined with a dose of anti-aging formula or UV skin-defining maximizer. Each booth is scientifically designed to provide a breathe-easy session and features an exhaust system to send the lingering mist out while sealing in skin's new shade. After a few minutes, your body will be dry to the touch.
