There was once a time when obtaining a sun-kissed glow required lying in the sun for long period of time. Body Glo Tanning takes advantage of tan technology by offering three levels of UV tanning in both lie-down and stand-up booths. These levels are named for locales known for their ability to bronze the skin, from the Jersey Shore's entry-level rays, then the Caribbean's medium-strength bulbs, and finally the Mediterranean's intense UV beams. Tanners that want a bronzed look without using UV rays or copious amounts of spray paint can take a step into the Norvell spray tan booth, where they get covered in customized color.
Although the decor of many tanning salons takes inspiration from the beach, Euro Tans' waiting room speaks to an elegant spa experience. Upon stepping into the beauty haven, customers are greeted by marble tile, white-leather couches, and Grecian columns framing the entrance to the tanning area. Within, clients bronze their skin via tanning beds and booths, Mystic and airbrush tanning, and solar flares sealed inside of mason jars. Apart from tanning, the Clifton location offers waxing services for both men and women using hard-wax systems made to improve comfort during waxing. The spa also provides relaxing facials for clients seeking to unwind.
You might think that standing up while you tan would cause an unnaturally darkened scalp, but this never happens at Hollywood Tans. That's because their arsenal of signature stand-up tanning booths create an always even, natural-looking glow in as little as eight minutes. With more than 140 locations nationwide, the chain’s salons—each a veritable bronze mine for pale bodies—can also bronze physiques Mystic Tan’s Instant Tan, a sunless formula that does not contain UV-rays or infectious California boy-band harmonies. Voted "Favorite Tanning Salon in North Jersey" by an independent readers' pole in Suburban Trends magazine, Hollywood Tans of Riverdale can also help customers choose the Instant Tan formula best suited to them, matching the bronzing serums to the each person's skin tone, type, and ideal look.
The vibrant pink and yellow walls of Hair Ambition not only create a bright and sunny atmosphere, but they also reflect the cheerful personalities of each technician on staff. The salon's stylists include owner Crystal, who boasts 10 years of experience in the industry, and she leads her team in transforming clients’ manes with Matrix color and Keratin Complex by Coppola hair-straightening treatments. Diana, the salon's resident aesthetician, performs custom-tailored facials to keep complexions healthy and glowing brighter than a child prodigy born with sequined skin.
