Behind the unassuming pink walls of Flamingo Tan's lobby is nothing less than the bottled power of the sun, in the form of the salon’s four different levels of tanning beds. The machines bronze bodies at different intensities, from the standard, long 3,000-watt bulbs of the Level 1 seashell bed to the concert-worthy light show of the 19,000-watt Level 4 Open Sun 1050. In addition to standard tanning, the studio heats up bodies with infrared body wraps and mimics the sun's touch with VersaSpa sunless spray tans, which produce bronzed skin more effectively than convincing a third-place athlete to clobber you with his medal.
Ashworth's Beauty Group bestows beauty-seekers and relaxation revelers with a welcoming environment and high-quality, professional product lines for luxurious services and treatments. Slip shoulders into a tension-relieving massage from a licensed massage technician, who uses skilled fingers and pliable palms to work shoulders, backs, and necks until muscles are finally calm enough to get back to their Monopoly game. Ready fingers for a big night out or a haute night in with an application of acrylic nails by an acrylic-nails specialist. For future oceanfront tourists, participants in wintertime lake dunks, and hot-pants enthusiasts, a Brazilian wax with an experienced, professional technician removes hair so quickly it's almost painless, and a cut and style with designer products, such as Paul Mitchell and Joico, tames tresses and ensures manes will roar with pleasure at their glamorous new get-ups.
Potted trees and paintings of scenic getaways welcome visitors into Sundeck Tanning Salon, a beach-themed bronzing studio that is owned and operated by a team of female tanning experts. Posters of bikini-clad beauties provide inspiration to bodies waiting to use the salon's spray-tanning booths and beds, with underlying captions that display tips for maximizing their new glow's lifespan, such as moisturizing it regularly and packing it in ice each night. Tanning products available for purchase lend vibrant pops of color to the shop's clean, white shelves, and include offerings from popular brands such as Swedish Beauty and Australian Gold.
At Solar Tan & Spa in Miamisburg, experienced staff match clients with appropriate UV-tanning beds, available in traditional, high-pressure, or standup models oft favored by cows for naptime bronzing. Tanning experts also explain the subtle differences among three sunless options, including a booth with organic, paraben-free solutions and a custom-airbrushing session. The salon-and-spa side of the menu delves into other options, such as the detoxifying Fit infrared body wrap system or teeth-whitening treatments capable of brightening smiles up to 10 shades. Staff members are dedicated to clients' comfort and safety, and the salon itself is as clean as an unused whistle and open seven of the eight days each week.
Behind the well-kempt storefront, a long hallway leads to each of Sun Kissed Tanning & Beauty’s private rooms. Inside, five levels of UV tanning beds power up to surround visitors in a warm, glowing light. The beds come in both horizontal and vertical versions, so clients can relax in a reclined position or hiss at a cable-company phone rep while standing up. Or they can skip the UV rays altogether—during airbrush tans, a certified staffer coats physiques head to toe in a tanning solution that provides an instant bronze.
Sun Tan City’s trained tanning consultants help clients get bronzed via UV-free tanning booths and ergonomic tanning beds. Guests can schedule a single visit to touch up an existing tan, purchase a multivisit package to get a discounted rate, or become a member to take advantage of the salon’s 100% guarantee.
Sunsations Tanning keeps the epidermis properly bronzed with personalized airbrush sessions. During a UV-free, spray-on tan, a specialist will douse tanners in a special skin-coloring mist, which can be personalized to the customer's liking, whether they need a shade that says "Day at the Beach" or "Orbits a Neutron Star." Because it’s administered by a human, the application safeguards against the drips, streaks, and smudges commonly caused by unsteady robot hands. The fresh bronze coat ensures your skin will be able to capture wandering eyes quickly and without resorting to more damaging methods involving UV rays or laying under heat lamps at the buffet.
