Tanning Salons in Hickory

Select Local Merchants

Salon owner Karen Speaks and her team of stylists at Images of Statesville do more than make women feel beautiful by cutting their hair—they also pay the hair and the positive feelings forward. The caring crew collects hair donations for a North Carolina–based company that makes wigs for cancer patients. In their everyday business, the staff members customize confidence-building dos and perform relaxing mani-pedis for locals, just as they have done for more than 20 years. The team works together in the salon's wood-floored salon amid plants, dark-hued styling stations, and light-turquoise accents, all of which create a vibe that's as warm and welcoming as a hug from the Human Torch's grandmother.

At more than 140 locations across the country, the staff at Hollywood Tans maintains an average of 15 booths so its customers need not wait or make appointments for their tanning sessions. Each HT-manufactured, proprietary booth is set up vertically for a more sanitary experience, during which high-performance bulbs bronze bodies in less time than standard models. In addition to UV tanning, Mystic Tan vestibules send out mists of bronzers and moisturizers in one of four settings.

Tan Time’s friendly team boosts complexions and relaxes muscles through a host of luxurious services. Custom spray tans leave skin glowing without exposing it to prickly UVA rays or beach-towel-stealing jellyfish. Choose your intended shade and watch with wide eyes as over the course of two sessions, your bleached-spaghetti limbs assume the appearance of a darker, healthier-looking, whole-wheat variety. Those seeking relaxation below the skin can opt for a 60-minute deep-tissue massage designed to release muscular fibers from the cast-iron chains that ground them to workaday worries. Kristina Edmondson, Tan Time’s licensed massage therapist, will use deep, slow strokes to dismantle stress clusters concentrated around your neck, back, and shoulders like an ocean wave eroding pirate teeth from its wind-swept shores.

Millionaire Matchmaker and Sprint might have more in common than you'd think. Both of them have used the Infinity Sun airbrush tanning system on TV, one on a reality show and one in an advertisement. With these TV spots, along with mentions on the Style network and a celebrity clientele, it is clear that the system is one of the best around. That's why Haute Tan uses it to bronze limbs. The system, designed by a Hollywood makeup artist, sun-kisses bodies with a serum devoid of harsh chemicals and full of all-natural ingredients, including antioxidants, pure botanicals, and bronze dyes filtered from captured sunrays.

Bodies emerge shades darker after a visit to Caribbean Breeze Tanning Resort. Five different styles of beds bronze clients at different intensities with a selection of lotions that encourage melanin’s climb to the surface of the skin. Airbrush tanning sessions use a pH-balanced solution that tints limbs with natural-looking shades, and patrons receive the UV-free burnish from a tanning specialist instead of automated machines that won't stop unless the patron invokes the First Law of Robotics.
