Beachy murals, wicker furniture, and colorful plants evoke a tropical feel inside Paradise Tan & Spa. The fleet of tanning booths – in standard and super/platinum wattage strengths – blankets patrons in a tropical golden hue. The staff also whitens customers’ teeth and waxes bodies free of unwanted hair.
Determined to offer a bevy of beautifying options to their customers, Gold Tans doesn’t stop at providing a slew of high-quality tanning services inside their welcoming confines. They also offer up mobile spray tanning, during which they whisk their hand-picked spray tan formulas to private events to ready bridal parties, prom participants, and Oscar statuettes for their big shindigs. In addition to custom airbrush spray tanning and traditional tanning, the accommodating staff treats clients to soothing massages and slimming body wraps.
At Taki's Salon and Spa, a team of eight designer and master stylists, two manicurists, and one massage therapist relaxes and beautifies bodies with a variety of services. The hair artists accentuate coifs with full or partial coloring, permanent waves, and thermal straightening, whereas the nail experts soften skin with exfoliating rose-scented or chocolate-mint-truffle scrubs. The list of targeted therapeutic massages includes the signature Shellatsu, in which the therapist uses lava seashells to knead away stress from pressure points, loosen muscles, and plug up the body’s naturally occurring volcanoes.
With dozens of locations sprinkled around the sunshine state, California Sun makes it easy for tanners to bronze without fear of sunburn. As sunless bathers daydream within two levels of Ergoline beds, melanin rises to the skin's surface at the beck and call of a high-pressure cooling system or adjustable face tanners, leaving bodies with a golden glow in just 10–12 minutes. For those who prefer the misty kiss of a sunless spray tan, formulas by VersaSpa, Mystic Tan, or Norvell grace guests with new shades that can last from four to seven days and won't leave skin looking unnaturally orange or supernaturally blue.
At EyeCandy Sunless Spa’s two locations, the staff specializes in custom airbrush spray tans and eyelash extensions. All spray-tan and eyelash artists are licensed cosmetologists or aestheticians, led by owner Meri, a beauty industry and tanning veteran. Along with bronzing bods and beautifying eyelash fringe, the spa also offers teeth-whitening services.
When it comes to beauty, Luxe Hair Lounge and Day Spa covers all of its bases with an expert for almost every aspect of the body’s appearance. The salon’s stylists, for example, revitalize scalps with precision haircuts and treatments that add volume and texture to wilting strands. Not to be outdone, the spa’s aestheticians smooth away wrinkles with beauty injections and oversee a tanning bed that imbues skin with shades of bronze. There’s a reason all of these services exist under one roof. Luxe’s one-stop beauty emporium saves clients time that would otherwise be spent running from salon to massage studio or tediously melting a wax candle over all of their hairy body parts.
Behind each door in R U Tan's spa-like facilities lie state-of-the-art tanning beds that vary in strength and style. The tanning center's certified consultants can help bronze enthusiasts select the best bed for their skin type or help assemble a tanning plan that combines sessions in the standup bed, the plush Extreme bed, or the Hydration Station bed that resembles Woody Allen's time-traveling vessel in Sleeper. Experienced spray-tanning techs provide an alternative to UV-ray bathing by instantaneously coating the skin in an even, natural-looking tone.
