Tanning Salons in Emeryville

Select Local Merchants

For nearly 20 years, the tan technicians at Soleil Tanning Salons have transformed pasty soul sacks into bronze living statues using UV and UV-free tanning techniques. Before tan sessions, friendly staffers educate patrons on how to get the most out of tans by using tanning lotions designed to stimulate melanin and extend the life of darker dermises. Soleil Tanning Salons are equipped with standing and horizontal tanning beds as well as UV-free MagicTan booths. The automated process typically takes 60 seconds and gives skin a golden glow thanks to micromists of custom tanner. No matter what bronzing method is chosen, tanners can rest easy knowing they will avoid burns associated with sunbathing atop radioactive beach towels.

Cocoon Bare’s team of spa technicians understands that a good waxing treatment has two things going for it: precision and speed. That’s why their Brazilian waxes typically take only 20 minutes and leave behind a wide variety of custom shapes and designs. Their threading services offer an even more precise means of shaping eyebrows and removing hair from sensitive complexions. When they aren’t sculpting bushy areas into triangles or iconic skylines, they airbrush skin with natural tanning solutions that result in an even glow.

Mist offers customized, handheld mists to under-sunned patrons in a comfortable, discreet environment. When you arrive at Mist, a friendly and experienced staffer will combine alcohol-free and organic colors to form a custom concoction that will blend with your current coat like a tiger in a pile of basketballs. You'll then relax (in your skivvies, an old bathing suit, or complimentary disposable bikini) as the tanning technician uses the handheld hue-changer to darken your dermis with the optionally scented (such as green apple, vanilla, and peach, $5 extra) spray. The quick-drying treatment yields a hue that is more seamless than a unitard and lasts five to seven days, just like a unitard.

A tan can accomplish a lot for the skin: it can add a golden luster, highlight muscle tone, and even hide imperfections. The one thing it shouldn’t do, however, is damage skin. Experts such as Kim at Spray Tan California assist clients in protecting their skin and making it look the way they want it to look. Kim is an expert in sunless sprays, so she can custom apply two layers of safe, hypoallergenic, oil-free DHA sprays to skin to bring out a glowing color that stays for up to seven days. She can apply the color in just 15 minutes at her studio or remotely at a place of her client’s choosing—just not at the National Archives in front of the perfectly tan Declaration of Independence. With this process, she ensures that tan lines disappear in time for special occasions.
