Founded by Heather Snyder and her husband, Joe, Island Tans of Reynoldsburg bronzes bodies with conventional booths, stand-up booths, and spray tanning. Their most basic bed, the Classic, imbues skin with a darker hue in 15 minutes, while the Ultimate Bed harnesses the power of 52 bulbs to tan bodies in seven minutes. They also carry a full line of tanning lotions, including accelerators, bronzers, and moisturizers from Designer Skin, Australian Gold, and Devoted Creations.
Revolve Sunless Tanning and Salon’s staff bronze bodies without exposing skin to skin-damaging UV rays. Applied by hand, their spray tans are fully customized based on each client’s skin tone and preferences. For an extra fee, tanners can arm themselves with a heated spray gun to get rid of the chill sometimes associated with the airbrush method and fight armies of snowmen. When the staff isn’t helping clients shake the winter blues with bronzing, they’re often found cutting hair or waxing eyebrows. They also perform Awapuhi Wild Ginger conditioning treatments.
The body-bronzing gadgets at Extreme Tans tint epidermises with a splash of sun-smooched color. Tanners can opt for the UV-free airbrush tan to daydream about Helios’s sabbaticals on the sun as the Fantasy Tan spray-dances across the skin, creating an even tan in 20 minutes. With seven different skin-brightening solutions, the spray is customized to each skin type and tone, leaving bodies ready for head-turning sidewalk struts.
Spanning more than 150 locations and six states, L.A. Tan's beautifying services polish pallid epidermises into shining, bronzed statues and brighten smiles with whitening treatments. A Level 1, 2, or 3 booth tan glows warmly with UVB rays, stimulating the body's production of vitamin D and burnishing epidermises to a brilliant sheen. UV-free spray tans, such as Mystic Tan or VersaSpa sessions, quickly glaze outer skin shells into glistening hues without exposing hides to the sun's harmful rays or pitiful knock-knock jokes.
The technicians at A New Day Body Wrap and Spray Tan Spa slim waistlines and tighten untaught skin with sea-inspired body wraps. To begin each session, techs wrap bodies with strips of cotton and elastic cloth. Each strip is soaked in one of the spa’s special formulations, such as a weight-loss promoting aloe-herbal mix. To enhance each partial- or full-body wrap, the spa also offers a seaweed-clay mask, which tightens skin in highly visible areas, such as those two strange holes where Frankenstein bolts used to be.
At About Face by Erica, aesthetician Erica Stevenson focuses on “the art of staying young,” refreshing clients with facial treatments, makeup applications, and waxing. She also helps keep clients feeling as young as possible with comprehensive makeup-application lessons and tips on which restaurants still sell kids’ menu items to nonminors. Such services are complemented by the work of resident stylist Kelly Mitecki, who performs special-occasion services such as bridal updos.
