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 Riverdale 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.
The team at Bella Organici LLC takes organic culture seriously. That's why every one of their products is 100% organic, no small feat at a tanning salon. In fact, none of their products have even been animal tested, either. Their work helps clients circumvent the inconvenience of tanning beds and outdoor sunbathing to achieve a nice bronze. The salon's tanning sprays react with the skin’s chemistry to create natural-looking color that lasts for up to two weeks. To boot, their at-home tanning events transform solitary beauty work into a party, prepping a group of friends for a day at the beach and helping the homeowner become invisible in front of their bronze walls. Bella Organici's other services also work to beautify skin, with facials, exfoliating scrubs, and waxing.
Owned by Nicole Livaudais, Tanique has provided customers with nail services and a golden hue year-round for the past decade. Hands can be dolled-up during manicures that are finished with a traditional polish or LCN UV Gel nails, which are durable high-grade plastic tips that can withstand constant hand washing and catfish noodling. Meanwhile, Smart Tan-certified staffers are always on hand to advise guests on each bed’s functions and Livaudais offers private consultations. Whether visitors are looking to build a base tan or to reach new levels of bronze, the salon offers an array of advanced UV equipment. Tanique offers Sundash Pro, Ambition Turbo, and Silver Bullet lay-down beds, as well as Starship Ultra standup booths–all of which come with cooling devices and high-powered bulbs.
Behind the hallway of silver-plated doors stand Tanning Image’s fleet of traditional and UV-free booths, each outfitted with their own private room. A trained staffer helps customers select the proper stand-up capsule, which can range in four levels of intensity and three levels of emotional support. The UV-free Mystic chamber’s automatic nozzles evenly spray skin surfaces in light, medium, or dark hues that replicate a sun-kissed glow for up to eight days. Tanning Image also houses a red-light-therapy chamber designed to firm skin by fueling underlying collagen production or stuffing cheeks with as many grapes as possible.
