Most everything glitters at Bling & Things Boutique, where the staff curates a collection of rhinestoned handbags, shiny jewelry, and unique clothing. They partner their eye-catching stock with spray-tanning services. Regular spray tans set in 24 hours, and express spray tans turn bronze in less time than the Statue of Liberty does in her dreams each night.
Kayla Bonds of You Perfected makes bronzed dreams a reality without damaging UV rays or chemically based tanning products. Instead, she relies on vegan products to help her clients reach their ideal hue. She custom sprays each airbrush tan, which ensures an even application.
Solar Salon and Spa’s team of aestheticians and stylists beautifies clients from head to toe in a clean and comfortable environment. For the skin, artfully drawn mehndi tattoos bedeck arms, hands, and feet in graceful swirls and patterns. Using threading or waxing techniques, experts shape brows into graceful arches or attention-grabbing zigzags, and bring out desired hues with tinting treatments. Hairstylists round out services by updating coifs with trims, perms, and all-over color.
With 20 locations conveniently sprinkled throughout the Atlanta area, Solar Dimensions helps clients get beach-ready regardless of their proximity to the shore. Each location features a fleet of UV tanning beds of varying brightness, all waiting to sun-kiss skin in 10?20 minutes and comfort clients with a built-in cooling apparatus or complimentary snuggles from a nearby penguin. Custom airbrush-tanning treatments or automated VersaSpa and MyMyst sunless-tanning sessions forgo light exposure and instead tone complexions with tinted mists that materialize in four to eight hours and last for several days. Both tanning solutions quench skin with aloe vera before tinting it a natural shade ranging from light almond to lifeguard. The trained staff can also hone body shape with infrared body wraps and VacuStep treatments, and brighten smiles with teeth whitening, helping to boost confidence before bodies hit the pool.
At St. Taylors Beach Tanning, clients retain their midsummer complexions year-round without having to take a tropical vacation or wear a copper wetsuit under their clothes. Four tanning beds offer different levels of tanning intensity, enhancing the effects with lotions, accelerators, and moisturizers from Designer Skin and Australian Gold. The salon also offers airbrush tanning customized to match individual skin tones, providing an even tan free from exposure to UV rays.
Solar Eclipse Tanning Salon doesn’t hide its bold intentions in the shadows. The salon’s staff members envision “putting the sun out of business,” a hyperbolic mission that they accomplish, in part, with four types of UV-tanning beds. Unlike the sun, all of these beds are regularly sanitized and outfitted with fresh bulbs to ensure a glowing base tan or a dark bronze coat.
Not content to merely mimic the sun’s rays, the salon takes a different route entirely with a Mystic Tan booth that spritzes the body with a UV-free bronzing formula. This formula comes in two shades, each of which lasts for up to seven days with proper care. In a red-light-therapy bed—also free of UV rays—therapeutic light repairs skin to improve the appearance of fine lines and render tattooed treasure maps more legible.
