Beach Bum Tanning's board-certified consultants speak with each client beforehand to determine the best tanning method for their golden-hued goals, allowing bronzed butterflies to emerge from their cocoons with a natural glow free of overexposure. The salon's Star Trekkian tanning beds come with features such as climate control, cool misting sprays, aromatic fragrances, and MP3 player inputs, and some beds are even open to the air to cut down on claustrophobia. As an alternative to tanning beds, the time-crunched can undergo an airbrush tanning that sun-gods skin without exposure to unforgiving UV rays or harsh Friar's Club roasts. Using a combination of fine-point- and wide-point-guided guns, Beach Bum's certified airbrush artists will shade and contour a custom-tinted tan to your body's curves, bends, and highway overpasses.
At X-Treme Tanning's two locations, cutting-edge tanning booths darken skintone. During a 12-minute session in the Silver Bullet, high-powered air conditioning sweeps over the body, dampening the heat that brims from facial and shoulder lamps. Available at the Thornwood location, the I Bed takes tanning to a new level: In addition to air conditioning and facial lamps, the lay-down bed effuses aromatic scents and links with iPods. Among stand-up booths, the Super Sonic ranks as the most powerful option—it has a 7-minute max and an upgraded sound system, which means that tanners can add a new level of color after listening to Bohemian Rhapsody just 1.183 times.
Beach Bum Tanning's high-tech beds, sunless booths, and tailored beauty treatments regularly appear in press outlets such as Allure magazine. The salon's heated Mystic HD booths spritz bodies with vibrant pigment while warming skin to ensure optimal and even color saturation without having to bear-hug King Midas. Certified Airbrush Artists also implement customized airbrush tans over 150 ways by using a combination of fine-point-guided and wide-point-guided guns to shade and contour a custom-tinted tan to the body's curves, bends, and highway overpasses.
