Spray tanning can often be a daunting journey full of unpronounceable ingredient lists and suspect hues. That's why Organic Tans owner Lorena Herrera uses an all-organic spray-tan formula that brims with aloe, vitamins, and DHA—a sugar derivative that turns skin cells tan naturally without the need for UV rays. To stave off orange complexions, Lorena and her team craft custom hues in an array of shades to suit fair complexions and veteran tanners alike. Meanwhile, the studio's collection of organic skincare products helps maintain tans and keep skin healthy whether airbrushed, UV tanned, or simply adjusting the color balance on TV-set T-shirts.
The certified tanning experts at Anytime Sun Tanning Salon possess extensive knowledge on the topic of bronzing. They know the nuances of the salon's nine UV beds and booths, from the wattage of the Open Sun 550 bed to the number of minutes it takes to establish a base in the level II stand-up unit. As an alternative to UV tanning, the specialists mist clients with Norvell bronzer, which dries quickly and yields a natural-looking, golden-brown tan.
A visit to Celebrations Salon can be just like going to a concert on a bright summer day—you'll get a tan while listening to music you love. The salon's Velocity HP1000 tanning bed makes its temporary tenant feel at home by pouring her iPod's tunes out through its subwoofer and four speakers, all while three banks of lamps impart an even tan. Beyond offering high-tech bed bronzing and Norvell airbrush tanning, Celebrations Salon's staff turns keratin sheets into their own tiny canvases. After mani-pedis on cushy new chairs with disposable linings, they let loose their inner Picasso and adorn nails with eye-catching art such as polka dots, tiny cupcakes, and Thanksgiving-themed pilgrims and turkeys. And they aren’t the only creative minds in the shop: hairstylists use scissors to slice through split ends and create elegant face-framing layers. They also highlight manes, add an ombre effect, or totally immerse strands in every color from soft gold tones to rich purples.

The salon's sconces cast orbs of light upward across the toffee-colored walls––no doubt an invocation of the name, soleil, which means sun in French. Large windows and polished wood floors add to the ambiance as expert stylists transforms strands with sleek voluminous layers.
