Freedom Tan makes a compelling pitch: get tan without UV rays or driving to the tanning salon. Instead, the technician travels to clients' homes with a high-pressure airbrush device that evenly distributes tanning solution onto skin and watercolors onto canvasses. To make sure the tans match clients' skin tones, the technician creates each solution from a mixture of up to five different solutions.
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.
Like any redhead, Jennifer Davis had intimate knowledge of the painful burns that would result when she tried to imbue her fair complexion with a sultry summer glow. Determined to help her fellow Texans achieve a sun-kissed hue without the damaging effects of tanning, Jennifer opened a mobile airbrush-tanning business that has since expanded to multiple salon hubs situated throughout the Dallas metro area.
Using a paraben-free, DHA solution, the salon’s certified airbrush technicians completely envelop frames in a shade tailored to skin tones, leaving a streak-free color that lets patrons avoid the attentions of lovelorn zebras. The tanning solution is applied and dry within 30 minutes, both illuminating bodily hues and covering skin imperfections such as blemishes, cellulite, and stretch marks during its two-week tenure on the skin. The salon also stocks a supply of Norvell products and airbrushing machines, allowing guests to maintain golden skin at home without replacing showerheads with arcade token machines.
Sunless Studios' airbrush tanning services almost put the sun to shame. Not only is every airbrush tan customized to meet the client's skin tone and tanning preferences, but the sunless formula can also be enhanced with organic moisturizing treatments, plus anti-aging and essential oil solutions. What's more, customers can even opt to have Sunless Studio's bronzing experts come to them—when making house calls, the team will tote portable tanning equipment, plus a tanning tent that helps to protect living room furniture from the tanning spray and shelters fresh tans from indoor rain storms.
