Tan Pro USA has been compensating for the less-than-ideal latitudinal coordinates of Ohio since 1998. It was then that they opened their first tanning outpost furnished with 30 UV beds, and they have since expanded operations to 43 stores throughout the state. They stock each location with ample tanning units, rendering appointments an archaic formality equivalent to gifting a sheep to your defense lawyer. After customers stroll in, they can slide into an Ergoline 1100, which boasts four ultra-performance facial tanners and two high-pressure shoulder tanners. Staffers advise which lotions enhance traditional tanning results along with explaining the benefits of the UV-free VersaSpa spray-tan booths. Harnessing infrared heat, VersaSpa booths impart a glow to entire physiques or targeted trouble areas, such as the inside of the armpits.
Beauty at Hand supplements its exhaustive list of services with a few small perks that turn any treatment into a relaxing, revitalizing visit. From the massage chairs and footbaths of the salon's nail-service area to the white drapes and foliage that flank the main space, few touches go unnoticed by incoming clients. Licensed nail technicians carry the weight of the signature services, which range from lavish spa treatments to applications of OPI Axxium gel, acrylics, and nail art. Beyond the bread and butter of nailcare, the staff also oversees UV-free tanning-bed sessions, adds a dash of sass with 3-D Beauty lash extensions, and smoothens out the skin with precise facial waxing. The staff even performs manicures and pedicures for children, allowing kids to further misunderstand what it means to get caught red handed.
As competitive ballroom dancers and coaches of the ballroom dance team at Ohio State University, Alex Thomas and Josh Tilford believe any person can reach their dance goals in the right program. Together, they own and run Dance Tonight, whose network includes group and private instruction of myriad dance styles such as waltz, tango, foxtrot, quickstep, and swing. Lessons can help even the slowest at foot become confident in their step as they absorb basic dance knowledge, prepare for special events, or escalate to amateur ballroom competitor status. The adult instruction is also supplemented by an extensive children's program, directed by professional instructor Danielle Moor.

Spanning more than 150 locations and six states, L.A. Tan's beautifying services polish pallid epidermises into shining, bronzed statues and brighten smiles with whitening treatments. A Level 1, 2, or 3 booth tan glows warmly with UVB rays, stimulating the body's production of vitamin D and burnishing epidermises to a brilliant sheen. UV-free spray tans, such as Mystic Tan or Versa Spa sessions, quickly glaze outer skin shells into glistening hues without exposing hides to the sun's harmful rays or pitiful knock-knock jokes.
The latest tanning technology and finest products await customers at Bronze Tan Studios, where high-quality beds, spray-tan booths, and a professional staff help transform sallow skin into burnished bodies. Shade shifters will appreciate a month of unlimited “Gold Club” tanning (a $49.99 value) with their choice of three different bed styles. Extra-pallid novices and 19th-century horror writers can build up their base tans with the Ultra Bed, which features three facial tanners and full-body cooling fans. The Booster Bed provides time-crunched tanners with excellent color upgrades in only 10 minutes, allowing them to quickly get back to evading police manhunts. Stand-up tanners, meanwhile, can darken their dermises while honing their observational humor in the no-contact Sundazzler while a high-performance dual-speed body fan alleviates flop sweat.
