The eponymous owner of Clarisa’s Golden Touch specializes in gilding body builders. She wields a professional spray-tanning wand during each treatment, carefully misting the skin to accentuate each patron’s body and skin tone. Whether patrons want full or partial color, Clarisa creates a comfortable environment with in-studio and on-the-go services. She provides thorough instructions for achieving competition color, suggesting that patrons depilate and exfoliate their entire body in advance of the application. By following these steps and also declining double-dog dares to streak through the car wash, patrons achieve tans that last up to ten days.
Spray-tanning imbues sunny glow without exposing skin to Sol's harmful UV rays or the beach's abundance of maniacs brandishing metal detectors. During your session, one of Endless Summer's trained technicians will hand-apply sprayable sunshine to your pallid profile with an airbrush, working conscientiously with your existing skin color and body's contours to achieve an even, natural effect that will last 7–14 days. This attention to detail prevents streakiness, a common occurrence with machine-applied color. Endless Summer's tanning formula is carefully balanced, with the active ingredient (DHA) kept at 9% to avoid any orange results. All tanning sessions happen in total privacy with a professional, and customers can dress or undress for the session according to their comfort level. Review this preparation list to ready your corpus for its bronzing session.
Experienced stylist Breyon Bergthold tends to guests' locks with precision haircuts and haircare services from a marble-topped, dark-wooden styling station at Electric Beach Tanning & Salon. After guests get comfortable, he shears locks into freshly cut styles and lops off split ends, leaving hair healthy and voluminous. In addition to haircuts, he also offers haircare add-ons such as nourishing conditioning treatments that moisturize and strengthen hair for games of pigtail jump rope.
Once they've entered Tropical Tanning, guests face a choice of three doors, but their decision shouldn't exactly be fraught with suspense—behind each door lies high-tech tanning beds with three levels of tanning pressure waiting to gild bodies to the tunes of a built-in radio or iPod docking station. Tanning associates help newcomers choose the right bed, and can also explain the benefits of the tanning creams that adorn the salon's faux tiki bar. Infrared-sauna treatments send beams of warming light into bodies, inducing the same raised heart rate as moderate exercise or really intense chewing. Murals of tropical sunsets, hammocks, and beaches adorn the salon's walls, and a life-size dashboard hula dancer waves goodbye on the way out.
