Customers glow with both bronze skin and big smiles upon leaving Wicked Tan, a spray-tan focused business located inside of Hair Studios at Four Corners. Four different types of spray tanning are available, including an original solution and an express tan that's ideal for quick lunch-break visits. Helmed by a certified spray-tanning technician, Wicked Tan also sells high-quality AVIVA skincare products. Spray tans are UV-free and can effectively cover up uneven lines caused by being out in the sun or sleeping on freshly painted park benches. Wicked Tan recommends that clients shave and exfoliate before their visit and avoid applying moisturizers, body oils, deodorant, and perfumes. They also encourage clients to wear flip-flops and loose-fitting garments to make sure the tanning solution does not come off after the treatment.
A visit to Beach House Tanning is about far more than getting a tan. Though attaining sun-kissed skin?courtesy of UV tanning or spray booths?is a major perk, the staff also wants guests to treat their visits like mini vacations from the real world. Beach House Tanning makes that easy, with its Smart Tan?certified staff and high-performance, clean equipment. All guests have to do is relax...and leave with a glow.
Luminous Glow, Inc. owner Barbara Clark dismisses the sun’s harmful UV rays and orange tanning products in favor of using organic products from Lavish Tan. Developed by a Neutrogena chemist, Lavish Tan’s patent-pending solution is made from natural ingredients, including a brown-sugar base that’s derived from apples. The natural formula eschews the usual beet- or carrot-fermented extracts of other blends, thus avoiding the unpleasant aroma and tangerine undertones of other spray tans. Luminous Glow, Inc.’s bronzing artists custom-spray limbs with coppery mist during 20- to 30-minute sessions, leaving bodies as expertly shaded as a elm tree in a da Vinci painting.
At Tanning Revolution all shades??including light, medium, dark, and super dark??are made from an organic solution. Everyone entering the salon receives disposable garments, sticky feet, a tan-remover bottle, and a tan extender. Customers can also opt for a quick powder-dry finish or a smell-free tan.
