Texas Tan's two locations each acquaint pallid complexions with a kaleidoscopic array of UV-tanning beds and spray-tanning booths. Like a mansion designed by a Jenga master, the tanning services have multiple levels. Starting at basic bronze beds equipped with external cooling systems, the tanning arsenal ranges all the way to top-of-the-line Platinum beds that tout 360-degree tanning, an MP3-player connection, and facial tanners.
Texas Tan also touts a sunless-spray-tan solution in its VersaSpa tanning booths, which envelop bodies in a golden mist over a mere 46 seconds. Guests step into the airy chambers of the tanning machine, where alternating gusts of pigmented tanning solutions evenly adhere a streak-free bronze to skin. Gilded glows last 5–10 days, allowing patrons ample time to show off their new, natural-looking tans during nights out with friends or while promoting Bikini Awareness Month.
The staff at Darque Tan learned the science of tanning through Smart Tan certification, which they rely on to design efficient, safe regimes for each client's skin type. Five levels of PCTan beds and booths can bronze skin with as few as 12 minutes of UV exposure while enveloping skin in cooling mist. Automated airbrush tanning in VersaSpa or Mystic Tan booths create even, natural-looking color that masks scars and stretch marks. Darque Tan's pursuit of convenience is further exemplified with business hours that span seven days a week, a minimum of 20 beds per location, and rec rooms where kids can read and watch TV. A crew of professional cleaners details each of the facilities according to a rigorous 50-point inspection and tips gleaned from reading Mr. Clean's LiveJournal.
Master aesthetician and certified airbrush-tanning specialist Kirstin Kupfer wants to make sure her customers' skin is as healthy as it is glowing. As owner of Envy Glow Custom Airbrush Tanning, Kirstin uses an organic, animal-product-free tanning solution to bring out skin’s inner glow without the risk of UV damage. The product is designed to look natural on the skin and to not rub off when skin is dried with a towel. Tanning services—all performed by hand for even, custom coverage—may be enhanced with glitter airbrushing or tan lines that make it look like you were wearing really cool clothes, and all services include an exfoliating spray before treatment to help the solution stick longer.
