Boca Salons, Day Spa and Tanning's highly trained stylists, massage therapists, and aestheticians glamorize outdated 'dos and epidermises with a smorgasbord of doting services. Hair stylists shear strands into fresh coifs ($25+ for men, $45+ for women), and aestheticians wax brow fringe into natural, elegant arches or hometown skylines ($14+). A hot-stone-therapy massage ($125) targets tension by applying Swedish strokes with warm river stones, then cooling skin with chunks of marble. In the Repêchage peppermint-sea-twist wrap, skin gets slathered with peppermint oil to improve circulation, lessen water retention, and attract wayward gingerbread men ($70–$100).
At Tansmania, trained and certified tanning advisors help customers achieve their tanning goals with a variety of beds and UV-free tanning options. Customers can choose from four different levels of tanning beds as they work toward their optimal hues with the aid of products. In addition to offering sunless spray-tanning booths, the tanning salon also changes their tanning lamps every 500 hours to guarantee high-quality bronzing.
Euro Bronze Tanning gives clients seven paths to golden skin: a Level 1, 2, 3, and 4 horizontal bed, a Level 4 standup bed, a UV-free Mystic Tan machine, and airbrush tanning. The UWE Level 4 bed uses high-pressure facial and shoulder tanners and envelops clients in body mists and aromatherapy. The Supersonic standup booth is ideal for quickly achieving a caramel color as it bronzes in seven minutes. Mystic Tan booths imbue skin with golden hues in only a few seconds. The other UV-free option—airbrush tanning—may take 20 minutes, but it includes a barrier-lotion application plus precise tanning-solution applications to ensure that the airbrush artist coats every square inch and creates a realistic-looking 24-pack.
Sinful Tans New Age Spa's Smart Tan–certified technicians darken skin tones with Norvell UV-free spray tanning technology and whiten teeth with quality BleachBright products. A two-stage sunless tanning session commences with a cosmetic bronzer that instantly becomes visible like a ghost tripping into a shower curtain. A DHA bronzer reacts with the skin's amino acids to establish a streak-free golden tone over a 2–3 hour period. Odor inhibitors and a raspberry-almond fragrance leave an alluring scent on the epidermis, while caffeine helps to prevent skin damage and makes hula girl tattoos dance in double time. At the culmination of each airbrushing, an erythrulose bronzer topcoat is applied to lengthen tan lifecycles.
While many tanning salons offer two or three levels of UV tanning, Body Bronze Tanning kicks it up a notch with seven beds spanning five levels of intensity. Split between traditional and standup models, each unit has unique and innovative features, such as voice-activated controls, air conditioning, and a barbershop quintet that hums relaxing ocean sounds. UV-free spray tans are applied by airbrushing extraordinaire Jessica Bednar, who recently completed her masters spray-tanning certification. Jessica blends custom Norvell solutions before applying them with a continuous flow HVLP wide-point spray gun to create natural-looking color that lasts for up to 10 days.
With their skin warm and newly darkened, patrons slip from the traditional tanning beds at Electric Beach. A gentle sibilance drifts from rooms where tanning technicians spray down patrons while keeping the individual’s skin tone in mind. They also draw upon lotions that prep epidermises with pH-balancing skin conditioners and keep skin tan. The studio's shelves brim with products from Australian Gold, Designer Skin, and Splash Tonics, all of which help protect skin, improve the tanning process, or serve as identification on a yacht.
