EuroBronz Tanning Studio beautifies skin with a bronzed sheen. The VersaSpa sunless tanning booth adjusts to three different levels of color to tawnify bodies in one visit. A pre-tan pH-balancing treatment and post-tan hydrating treatment help the skin's gold-plating last. A basic tanning bed's 15-minute UV-B bombardment creates a base tan to prep skin cells for serious pool- or beach-side bronzification. A month of unlimited visits can conspire with natural sun to keep bodies browned long-term, like a Thanksgiving turkey preserved with shellac.
Ancient people in ancient times got perfect ancient tans while standing up because lying on the ground for bronzing purposes had not yet been attempted. Hollywood Tans' friendly staff takes a page out of the history books by implementing highly hygienic vertical tanning to deliver even, 360-degree coloration without the stress of bulb marks and pressure points one gets from horizontal tanning beds. If you opt for the month of unlimited tanning (up to a $110 value), your outside will be privy to the state-of-the-art stand-up booths, which instill pleasing hues all over your body in no more than 11 minutes. Each Hollywood Tans location hosts around 15 booths, all equipped with a built-in audio system, which is a significant upgrade from old-school booths with built-in Abe Vigodas.
Although he had already been a successful stylist for years when it took place, the thing that solidified John Nelson as a top-notch professional was a training stint he spent in Rome, Italy, where he absorbed European techniques that he brought back to his own salon in the United States. Now guests of John Nelson Salon and Spa enjoy the benefit of these and other techniques—such as Global Keratin treatments and color services—within a workspace where lime-green accents punctuate slate-gray walls and floors. Chocolaty hues coat the spa area, where licensed technicians unpack pores with Alleia skincare products and drive away cellulite with herbal detoxifiers and repurposed breakup speeches.
In Riviera Tanning Salon’s private, air-conditioned rooms, clients can stretch out in tanning beds as they absorb UV rays from high-pressure filtered lights that render a more effective and even bronzing. While in one of three high-pressure tanning beds, clients can entertain themselves with radio-equipped CD players and relax on European-style soft mattress beds—which are available in both stand-up and lie-down varieties. The tanning beds rapidly tan skin any range of shades from a light dust of color to a deep, island-vacation brown. To achieve a fresh from the beach hue without the UV exposure, clients can opt to let Riviera Tanning Salon’s experienced airbrush technicians gilt them from head to toe in just six minutes, which is faster than King Midas could after shotgunning 12 cups of Gold Coast coffee.
Though the bright colors and mod furniture of South Beach Tanning’s numerous salons may tempt clients to kick back for hours, that’s not the staff’s goal. Instead, they strive to provide swift, hassle-free tans that get clients out the door quickly to enjoy the day. Each of the chain’s salons boasts a floor plan that is twice as large as the average tanning salon, which increases the likelihood that a bed will be free and therefore reduces annoying wait times. Guests can choose from five tiers of UV beds, whose successive levels beget increased bulb output and more amenities to imbue swifter, more comfortable tans. For a UV-free glow, customers can opt to hop in the salon’s automated VersaSpa booths, which guide jets of pigmented formula from head to toe in only 46 seconds to grant a look as summery as boat sails composed of stitched-together bikinis.
The earliest tanners learned how to harness the bronzing essence of the fiery sun, proving once and for all humankind's dominance over the weak, inanimate solar system. For $24, this Groupon gets you 30 days of unlimited tanning or two Mystic tans at South Beach Tanning Salon in King Farm. South Beach is a clean, comfortable sunshine spot with state-of-the-art beds.
