You might think that standing up while you tan would cause an unnaturally darkened scalp, but this never happens at Hollywood Tans. That's because their arsenal of signature stand-up tanning booths create an always even, natural-looking glow in as little as seven minutes. With more than 140 locations nationwide, the chain?s salons?each a veritable bronze mine for pale bodies?can also bronze physiques Mystic Tan?s Instant Tan, a sunless formula that does not contain UV-rays or infectious California boy-band harmonies. Voted "Favorite Tanning Salon in North Jersey" by an independent readers' poll in Suburban Trends magazine, Hollywood Tans of Union can also help customers choose the Instant Tan formula best suited to them, matching the bronzing serums to the each person's skin tone, type, and ideal look.
Salon Bronze bestows customers with a sun-kissed glow in light-letting tanning beds and VersaSpa spray-tanning booths. The salon?s staff meticulously cleans and inspects their traditional and standup UV tanning booths' lights, changing bulbs regularly to ensure that each tan achieves the rich, bronze hue of a deep-fried Golden Gate Bridge. The standup VersaSpa spray-tanning booth imbues skin with a coppery glow in minutes. After selecting up to three solutions?a pretan pH balancer, a customized bronzer, and a postsun hydrator?clients step into the booth and succumb to a soothing mist spritzed directly onto the skin.
Complimentary plush towels and protective eyewear are just a few of the pluses at California Tanning Salon. Only stocking beds less than three years old and changing tanning bulbs at 75% of their projected life are a few of the others. This attention to details is all in the service of their customers and quality tans. As all three of their salons boast at least 10 beds, they also treat customers to the convenience of never needing an appointment. Catering to those preferring sunless tans, they offer the Mystic Tan automated spray booth at the Ledgewood location. Furthermore, customers can partake in a Midas Touch with customized airbrush bronzing at the Clifton location.
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.
Unless you live on a tropical island or sleep in a tanning bed, you probably don't have a year-round tan. That's where Electric Beach comes in. The salon houses an array of beds equipped with pampering technology, such as aromatherapy misters and MP3 player-compatible sound systems. Spray tanning takes the UV rays out of the process, instead treating skin to a natural bronzing formula that grants an even, sun-kissed glow.

When and how did you first develop a passion for your work?
I developed a passion for tanning in 2001. I finally had the desire and the means to jump into the industry by opening a salon in 2008.
The interior of a business can affect how its customers feel. What kind of decor do you use to help make your clients feel pampered and at ease?
Stylish and modern. Eclectic crown molding, chairs, and decorative modeling throughout the salon give clients a warm, homey feeling from the second they walk in.
