The tanning specialists at The Bronze Life manually mix organic, 100% vegan spray-tanning solutions to allow for unparalleled shade customization. Right off the bat, a consultation reveals your personal tanning goals before a streak-free spray tan adds a natural-looking hue to your skin. The tech can also throw in additives that aim to tighten the skin, obscure other signs of aging, or cause rainwater to bead up on your skin. In addition to in-studio sessions, The Bronze Life's mobile airbrush setup can color in clients at their home or office.
Avenir Salon focuses its beautification efforts on two key aspects of the body: the skin and the hair. Guests in need of a new look can turn to the talented stylist, who works well with both men’s and women’s hair. For a sun-kissed, yet UV-free bronzing, spray tans darken skin without requiring a trip to the beach. For such sessions, Avenir uses the Infinity Sun spray tan system, the same system used by notable celebs such as Jessica Simpson, Justin Beiber, and King Midas’ postman.
During the custom airbrush tan, a professional birthday-suit bronzer will spray each client to the desired level of darkness. The airbrushing applicator ensures an even tone, and the natural-looking solution keeps customers from being mistaken for celebrity sweet potatoes. Customers can also relax in one of Total Tan's many tanning beds, lounging in standard beds for up to 20 minutes or climbing into turbo beds for 15-minute stretches. Leg tanners provide gams with golden hues, and standup beds keep clients from developing dream-cloud-shaped tan lines. Total Tan's most powerful solar simulator, the Super Bed, delivers results in 12 minutes, allowing clients to get home in time for the hugging part of their favorite '90s sitcom.
For the team at Lone Star Tan & Spa, swimsuit season lasts the entire year. With a friendly disposition, the staff pursues beach-preparedness for clients by rendering a full menu of bronzing and skincare services. UV tanning beds and airbrush spray tans chase away pallors, while waxing treatments whisk unwanted hair from underarms, chests, and bikini borders. Their body wraps dovetail with the mission of aesthetic splendor by helping to promote slimming and detoxification with mineral solutions. To boot, facials both cleanse skin and diminish signs of aging. The stylists on staff add hair to their mix by cutting and coloring hair, creating beach-y looks with highlights or pool-noodle extensions.
Tan It All bronzes bodies sans sunlight with traditional light-bed tanning and UV-free Mystic Tans. One month of super-bed tanning ($45 value) puts sallow skin through rigorous 10–20 minute melanin workouts to prime it for days spent outdoors or the eventual migration of humans to the sun. Otherwise, pelts of all shades can benefit from a month of red-light therapy ($80 value), which bombards skin surfaces with friendly visible-spectrum light within the comfort of a high-tech bed, seeking to shrink pores, smooth wrinkles, and give skin a healthy, toned appearance. By stimulating collagen and elastin production, the treatment can deliver a noticeably firmer and springier epidermis in as little as 30 days. For UV-free pigment popping, hop, skip, or teleport into a private individual chamber for a patented Mystic Tan ($20–$25 value), which applies 60-second spritzings of paraben-free tanning solution.
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.
