Real Tan’s owners originally opened their doors more than 20 years ago with a salon in Scarborough. The single location couldn't keep up with tanning demands, leading to a relocation to Mississauga and a recently opened second location in Thornhill. Along the way, Real Tan has expanded its specialties to include ultra-bronzing Ergoline beds, Playboy spray tanning, and teeth whitening, which brightens teeth up to eight shades and lasts longer than gargling white-out.
The staff at West Salon and Spa beautifies visages six days a week with products by Kevin Murphy, Guinot, and Moroccanoil. As some stylists clip tresses, others tint strands with Affinage hair colour or Infiniti permanent hair-colour cream, which boasts low ammonia and thoroughly covers up grey strands. Techs can also coat facades with safe spray-tanning solutions and prune fuzzy regions with aromatherapy essential wax. To prep brides for their big day, staffers arrange bridal packages by combining their skills and the powers granted by their magical rings.
As a child, Lorraine Ferrari’s favorite memories were always linked to basking in the sun. As an adult, Lorraine has taken this love, bottled it, and re-released it inside of Aztec Tanning Studio, a boutique tanning salon that features high-end beds, spray-tanning equipment, and supplemental lotions for year-round sun-seekers. In addition to housing beds of varying intensities, the studio offers H20 massages, which use jets of water to gently sooth muscles, boost circulation, and make non-man-made geysers jealous.
Tanorama bronzes complexions with a combination of spray-tanning booths and traditional UV tanning beds. With 30 days' worth of unlimited access to the studio's tanning beds, patrons can gild their epidermal terrain under controlled conditions with a trained staff carefully monitoring their bronzing progress. Spray-tan booths, meanwhile, add golden hues to skin with a personalized tanning formula and showers of confetti, instantly giving bodies more radiant glows and more even complexions. Tanorama advises against wearing perfumes, skincare products, or cotton-candy hats during tanning sessions.
