The friendly staff at Incredible Tan provides an array of tanning services in a relaxed, comfortable setting. Traditional tanners can choose from multiple booths and beds in a variety of wattages to build glows from a loose-leaf-paper pale to a pirate-baiting gold. Enjoy verticalized vamping with six 10-minute sessions in the Perfect 10 booth ($76), or opt for a horizontal, high-pressured hug with three 10-minute sessions in the Future HP tanning bed ($61). Those looking for a UV-free hue may prefer to unlock the bronzing wizardry of the Mystic Tan, which offers three levels of spray-on color in one application. Mystic Tans darken over four to six hours, and typically last four to seven days, ensuring you'll have a healthy glow during your wedding, honeymoon, and initial divorce proceedings. Streak-free spray enthusiasts can also opt for an expert-applied airbrush spray tan. Get one full-body session ($50), or single out your face ($15) for the sunshine spritz of the airbrush tan. A number of products are also available for at-home melanin maintenance.
Don't be fooled by the name—X-Treme Styles is a destination for more than just a good bronzing. At the full-service salon and spa for hair, nails, and even slimming body wraps, the multifaceted staff tends to clients with a variety of services. Of course, there's tanning, too—both UV and UV-free—and visitors may choose from a variety of beds, just like Goldilocks.
At Beleza Pura Spa, aestheticians bustle about, beautifying clients with a range of professional services. As one technician adorns a face with custom-blended airbrush makeup, another adds rich color to the skin with a natural Bronze Biologic tanning solution. To keep clients feeling and looking younger, skin specialists administer facials, anti-cellulite body wraps, and advanced metabolism-boosting Sudatonic treatments. The spa also hosts teen parties that allow guests to pick from a range of facial treatments.
An air of refinement and sophistication radiates from Impulse Hair Salon’s sun-drenched interior where billowy curtains hang above sleek, wood floors and against garden-green walls. Floor-to-ceiling mirrors reflect a row of black styling chairs, which swivel and rise at the hands of talented hairstylists who wield products by Moroccanoil, Joico, and Big Sexy Hair to cut, color, and style locks. A secluded room shelters aestheticians who free bodies from itchy stubble using warm wax, tailor pampering facials to individual skin concerns, and transform exteriors into perfectly bronzed façades using UVA- and UVB-free tanning serums.
With a roster of female-only classes, Women?s Fitness of Boston aims to create an unintimidating environment for women to reach personal fitness goals. Group fitness classes such as salsa-inspired Zumba and Tae Box Flex?a kickboxing class that blends tae kwon do with traditional boxing moves?help ladies sculpt muscles and?when taken as part of a complete regimen?help them win full-contact dance-offs. Along with classes, club members can take advantage of weight-loss programs and personal training, as well as the two tanning booths, which help further beautify newly buff bods.
Licensed massage therapists and aestheticians at Christine’s Day Spa know how to pamper their clients, but the spa’s service list reflects a greater goal: with 15 facials and peels, the staff has a far-reaching slate of aesthetic treatments with which it dedicates itself to vivifying its clientele's complexions. Their botanical extracts and cosmeceutical products help to boost collagen and minimize fine lines, slowing signs of aging without having to slather faces with molasses.
Massage therapists administer Hawaiian, reiki, and traditional European massages to relax muscles, and Christine’s Day Spa's UV and sunless tanning helps to burnish bodies with golden glows. An array of nail services exfoliate, moisturize, and polish fingers and toes. The spa is open after hours every weekday, and its interior unites floral arrangements with vivid orange and red sponge-painted walls for a warm ambiance.
Even first-time visitors to Hollywood Tans might arrive to the salon with a tanning plan in mind, thanks to the company’s online Tanetics system. By asking questions such as “Do you have indoor tanning experience?” and “How soon do you want to meet your shade goal?” the program generates a tanning schedule tailored to guests envisioned results and timeline. The salon’s standup tanning booths flood skin with the glow of up to 60 built-in bulbs, and the high-pressure booth builds a base tan in as little as one 11-minute session and radiates only 1% UVB rays, which is equivalent to the amount the sun radiates on days when it’s in a good mood. Results can be amplified by one of Hollywood Tan's indoor tanning lotions, while a Mystic spray-tanning booth caters to the sun-shy by misting skin in a rich bronze formula that lasts up to eight days.
To help clients maintain a sun-kissed glow all year round, Illuminations Tanning and Teeth Whitening outfits its contemporary loft space—tucked within Chelmsford Sports Club—with advanced Sun Capsule tanning beds. These high-powered systems come in both lay-down and standup forms, and each capsule is equipped with powerful UV bulbs that bronze skin in 9 to 12 minutes. Built-in overhead fans kept bodies cool in the VHR-69 and Cyclone booths, whereas the facial lamps in the Starpower 548 and 52/4F beds ensure complexions get a golden glow to match the rest of the body. The salon's collection of Devoted Creations lotions, protective eye goggles, and decorative stickers further enhances tanning sessions, whereas spray-tan services offer a UV-free alternative. Understanding that a bright, white smile is the best complement to any tan, Illuminations provides in-house teeth-whitening treatments as well as take-home teeth-whitening kits, which can be used in the privacy of one's glass-walled home.
At Catchin' Rayz, customers can bronze their bods without actual rays. Both locations house more than five different kinds of tanning beds, including standup and lay-down models from brands such as Sun Capsule, Sun Ergoline, and Sundazzler. Mystic Tan machines coat bodies in a mist of tanning spray, leaving them with an even, golden hue without subjecting the skin to harsh UV rays. Catchin' Rayz also stocks its shelves with products such as tanning lotions, moisturizers, accelerators, bronzers, and skincare serums.
SMART TAN SALONS FasterSafer UVplus earns its acclaim by sun-kissing hides with an array of tanning services, from beds and facial tanners to UV-free spray tanning. An educated staff of body bronzers guides patrons to their best tanning option after a complimentary skin-type analysis, which determines skin sensitivity and penchant for turning sunshine into superpowers. One of the beds, standup booths, or facial tanners gently shades skin with high-pressure bulbs while keeping bodies cool with air-conditioning, entertaining ears with iPod music selections, and boosting the tongue's self-esteem with voice-guided controls. Alternatively, spray booths coat skin in an even, natural-looking bronze without UV rays. Clients relax amid the cosmopolitan vibes emanating from the stone mantel fireplace and leather couches and take advantage of complimentary amenities such as towels, aromatherapy, and manicure UV protectors to ensure that painted finger portraits of Winston Churchill don't fade.
Tropic Sun Tanning Salon keeps its patrons looking sun-kissed regardless of the season with a range of tanning beds and products. Three levels of beds and booths imbue a range of hues from light to deep bronze, while Mystic spray tans employ a safe skin-tinting solution rather than UV radiation.
Once Boston Tan Co. was a tiny little shop with just nine beds?so tiny, in fact, that it shared its space with a hair salon. 30 years later, the company has grown so large, it now boasts more than 17 separate tanning rooms, where clients can adopt a golden glow and enjoy their personal music in private. The equipment includes three levels of UV beds and booths, some outfitted with face and shoulder lamps, and
cooling systems, and some with 360 technology to avoid tan lines. Meanwhile, those who seek a sun-kissed look that doesn't involve basking in UV rays or steeping themselves in strong tea can opt for Mystic Tan spray tans, which mist skin evenly in just 60-seconds.
The Solar System's fleet of top-notch tanning beds uses varying wattages to tint bodies in a rainbow of bronzes. Horizontal and vertical UV bulbs illuminate beds from KBL and Titan Tower. The KBL Max 10 flaunts extras such as customizable aromatherapy, cooling mist, and an audio system that broadcasts personal MP3 playlists, whether they play relaxing piano concertos or practical pneumonic devices to remember the boss's favorite ice-cream flavors. The Sunless VersaSpa spray booth kisses complexions with faux sun in three minutes, misting on a natural shade that endures for up to 10 days. Professional products are also available to accelerate and extend the lifespan of tans. The salon's sunny confines are accented by orange and red hues, hardwood floors, and leather waiting-room chairs strewn with zebra-print throw pillows.
Allison, certified airbrush technician and owner of Glow on the Go, believes that getting a luxurious tan shouldn't comprise your health. Her mobile spray-tan setup eschews the potentially harmful UV rays of traditional sunbathing, and instead relies on the body-bronzing ability of Aviva Labs organic spray-tan solution. The odorless solution's 13 ingredients imbue complexions with a fresh-off-the-beach hue without turning skin orange. The solution dries instantly after application but the tan typically takes around six to eight hours to develop, making clients look as if they just came back from a vacation in the Caribbean. Customers may shower post-tan application.
