A slew of stand-up, lie-down, and airbrush tanning options make up Solarium Tan Spa's retinue of skin-gilding services. Patrons looking for a deep bronze hue can opt for a month of unlimited access to the salon's level-two and stand-up beds, spending 15 minutes soaking in rays to achieve a sun-kissed glow without joining a solar-deity dating service. Otherwise, trained tan technicians spritz bodies in curve-customized tans from an airbrush-tanning wand, aiming to create natural-looking highlights and a whole-body bronze with Norvell products.

More than just a hair salon, Mitzi's boasts the full spectrum of body-bronzing methods; they offer traditional tanning, spray tans, and giant vats filled with melted butterscotch candy.
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.
Hot Spot Tanning combines state-of-the-art sunless-bronzing technology with friendly, committed service. Marinade your melanin with a month of unlimited tanning in one of Hot Spot's standard bulb-based beds, which boast a bevy of advanced amenities, including built-in timers, optional air conditioning, and inspirational photos of the world's sexiest gingerbread men (a $41.99 value). Or, achieve the perfect sun-un-kissed glow thanks to the ray-less power of two airbrush tans, applied by a trained tantress to deliver a UV-free dose of customized color (each a $27.99 value).

Avoid the sun’s burny kisses with 10 20-minute sessions inside the soothing confines of a Sunstar UV bed ($7.95 each), which features 32 body lamps and a full-body cooling system. Or soak up a melanin marinade while getting basted with two VersaBronze sunless spray treatments ($19.95 each). Boasting an open design and a built-in blow dryer, VersaBronze gives skin a tropical punch while hydrating and smoothing bodies in less than 60 seconds. Additionally, a knowledgeable staff provides visitors with helpful pointers and ensures they don’t emerge from their session sporting a camouflage pattern.
In Riviera Tanning Salon’s private, air-conditioned rooms, clients can stretch out in tanning beds as they absorb UV rays from high-pressure filtered lights that render a more effective and even bronzing. While in one of three high-pressure tanning beds, clients can entertain themselves with radio-equipped CD players and relax on European-style soft mattress beds—which are available in both stand-up and lie-down varieties. The tanning beds rapidly tan skin any range of shades from a light dust of color to a deep, island-vacation brown. To achieve a fresh from the beach hue without the UV exposure, clients can opt to let Riviera Tanning Salon’s experienced airbrush technicians gilt them from head to toe in just six minutes, which is faster than King Midas could after shotgunning 12 cups of Gold Coast coffee.
