Naked Beach Tanning bronzes bodies with a combination of 10 tanning beds and UV-free spray tanning. Two locations in Meridian and Boise feature beds that suit every skin tone via standup or lay-down machinery. They also provide three customizable levels of California Tan sunless spray tans, which mimic the results of a tropical vacation or baths in melted copper-colored crayons during one-minute treatments.
With close to a century of combined experience, the attentive stylists at Split Endz call upon modern-day cutting maneuvers and classic color techniques from the days when hairdryers were powered by steam engines. Friendly artists specializing in blanking out body canvases can deploy wax to evict lingering fuzz, resulting in more aerodynamic roller-coaster rides. The staff also rejuvenates skin with facials, leaving skin firm and youthful.
A wildly successful alternative to traditional day spas—its more than 300 locations blanket 36 states and half a dozen countries—Planet Beach Contempo Spa is a futuristic relaxation station where state-of-the-art machines administer all the spa and tanning services. These friendly automatons sometimes replace familiar treatments, as in the Luminous facial, a light-based service that delivers blemish-busting results similar to those of a conventional facial. But other equipment maps out new spa territory entirely: the Hydro-Derma Fusion chamber moisturizes the whole body with nutrient-rich steam in order to offset the effects of a dry climate or a rear-end collision with a salt truck. Other machines whiten teeth, spray tan skin, and massage muscles.
Planet Beach operates on a gym-style membership system, meaning that members purchase packages or pay flat monthly rates. As members spend more time at the spa, they get to know the helpful assistants who are always on hand to demonstrate how to use the equipment without activating its ability to cry.
Endless Summer Tanning & Wellness encourages its clients to bring their own music with them; several of the tanning salon’s beds have individual speaker systems that can connect to a personal mp3 player. The commitment to combining entertainment and relaxation doesn't end there: the HydroMassage system kneads away aches and tight muscles as guests watch movies or listen to tunes, and the hydration stations can increase circulation while nourishing the skin with wildly funny algae extract. The Silver Bullet bed features a relaxing misting system, and tingle lotions help to deepen tans while adding a soothing sensation to invigorate weary limbs.
Inside Jamaca Me Tan, Heather expertly decorates faces using a SofTap permanent makeup system. She applies hypoallergenic pigments to the skin for perfectly arched brows and eye-catching eyeliner that produces a 3-D effect and stays put while sleeping, working out, and bobbing for apples. Also at the salon, tanning beds imbue bodies with a golden hue and a team of spray tan specialists bronze pelts in 60 seconds flat.
At Image Sun Tanning, bronzing experts help their customers achieve a sun-kissed glow. The staff members guide clients into various UV tanning beds, which include both standup and lie-down models. In addition to these options, you can enhance your skin tone with custom spray tans. In these sessions, one of the studio’s skilled technicians can paint the skin in one of three hues and accent it with add-ons such as custom scents. Beyond its signature services, Image Sun Tanning has expertise in other spa treatments—the infrared body wraps can help detoxify your skin or dispose of a clingy snowman.
