The second her clients walk through the door, Ana strives to give them the most relaxing experience possible by delivering meticulously preformed nail services with a personal and friendly approach. Her manicures and pedicures are executed with some of the industry's most popular products, such as OPI nail polish and CND Shellac's long-wearing gel-formula lacquer. Patrons on the go can beautify their tips with Ana's basic mani-pedi, which includes nail shaping, a light massage, and polish. More leisurely clients or retired vacuum salesmen can indulge in a more extravagant treatment, such as hot-stone massage therapy, a moisturizing foot mask, or a refreshing scrub.
At Hollywood Tans, epidermises are enlivened with a special alchemic process known as Tanetics. In application, Tanetics employs the expertise of an in-house skin specialist, who considers each customer’s tanning goal, skin tone, and skin sensitivity before helping to craft an ideal spectrum-shifting regimen. Five 10-minute bouts inside Hollywood Tans’ vertical Hybrid booth leave the pelt polished with a 360-degree base tan that's preferable for afternoons at the beach or scandalous nights at the laundromat. Those interested in a UV-free tegument transformation can also opt for five glow-level to medium-level Mystic spray tans ($19–$25) that de-pale pasty pigment with misty coats of bronze that can last five–seven days. Grab today’s Groupon to restore your skin’s vibrancy and enjoy the added satisfaction of doing your part to put the sun out of business.
In 2001, the first iTan Sun Spray Spa opened its doors. It had a simple goal—to make clients feel and look lovely with professional tanning services. Today, the spa has more than 20 branches around San Diego, each offering a slightly different assortment of tanning beds, spray-tanning booths, and mechanical spa services.
The Smart Tan–certified staff prioritizes keeping up with tanning technology by stocking state-of-the-art tanning beds such as the Sun Angel, which uses sensors to customize a blend of UVA and UVB rays, practically eliminating overexposure and the need to wear a beekeeper suit to detract from a burn. Many beds come equipped with stereo sound systems, misters, and fans. Just down the hall from these beauty gadgets, Mystic and airbrush machines bronze limbs without UV rays or tan crayons, and mechanical spa machines dispense relaxing red-light treatments, infrared-energy body wraps, and aqua massages.
