Misty, the bronzing goddess behind Mystified Mobile Airbrush Tanning, personally administers a customized one-on-one tanning experience to each fledgling tan fan during each 15- to 30-minute treatment. While expertly dispensing summery molecules across fair swathes of skin with an HPLV spray-tanning system, Misty explains the process as it's happening and provides friendly instructions on when to turn and when to turn to a magic 8 ball for guidance. The natural, organic Tan Envy products are derived from locally sourced sunbeams. Rosemary, along with vitamins E and C, help to nourish the skin. Witch hazel's astringent properties join açai berry and ginseng for an antioxidant trio that administers microscopic karate chops to each oxidant.
The Mystic spray-tan booths at Hollywood Tans hydrate and tint skin for a sun-kissed look without exposure to damaging UV rays. The Mystic process mists the body with bronzers, moisturizers, and DHA, designed to tint skin with smooth and natural-looking color that can last for up to a week, about as long as a popsicle licked only once a day. Tanners can set the system's cartridge to one of four shades to customize their epidermal emblazoning, and the treatment yields instant results, imbuing the bodies of procrastinators with a last-minute glow in time for special occasions. In addition, the standup booths are easily accessible and convenient for those who prefer to bronze while sleepwalking.
The salon’s knowledgeable staff is passionate about helping their guests look younger, slimmer, and beach-ready by providing a cache of beautifying services. When technicians aren’t helping guests choose between Mystic Tan spray booths and three levels of UV tanning beds, they kick-start red-light therapy facial treatments that help reduce the appearance of frown lines and wrinkles. Specialized Formostar infrared body wraps with heated silicone bandages help the body break down stored fat and sweat out toxins with the goal of smoothing out cellulite and reshaping physiques to eventually mimic the silhouettes of hourglasses or barometers.
Custom spray tans from Beach Bronze Airbrush Tans are well-traveled: they've been given in Grammy gift baskets, worn during the Miss USA pageant, and photographed on models featured in Maxim and Playboy. Their wide reach is understandable, given that the eco-certified organic formula takes only two hours to develop into its final, flattering hue. Additionally, each airbrush tan avoids common tanning pitfalls, such as streaks, orange coloration, and one toe complaining that it's less bronze than the others. The tan is also popular among plastic surgeons and dermatologists, because it can minimize imperfections without damaging the skin.
Armed with the knowledge that every person’s skin is different, the staff at The Hot Spot Tanning offers clients access to a range of UV-and sunless-tanning methods that suit many skin types. The salon features five tiers of Level 1–5 UV, the latter of which build upon the basics of Level 1 beds by adding in amenities such as cooling fans and pressurized bulbs for faster, burn-reducing results. Staff members also accommodate the needs of clients who prefer UV-free methods with automated VersaSpa spray-tan booths, which dispense a pigmented mist to create a head-to-toe tan in 48 seconds.
Upon entering Abaco Tan & Nails, customers choose from a selection of six standup and lie-down tanning beds. They may customize their sessions with a variety of stencils and lotions designed to do everything from fight acne to cool skin. One of the beds even fights the aesthetic signs of aging, including wrinkles, blemishes, and Angela Lansbury–tattoos, with doses of red-light therapy. The salon's spray-tanning technician also coats bodies with UV-free color in a much more precise and personalized fashion than booths.
