Beach Bum Tanning's board-certified consultants speak with each client beforehand to determine the best tanning method for their golden-hued goals, allowing bronzed butterflies to emerge from their cocoons with a natural glow free of overexposure. The salon's Star Trekkian tanning beds come with features such as climate control, cool misting sprays, aromatic fragrances, and MP3 player inputs, and some beds are even open to the air to cut down on claustrophobia. As an alternative to tanning beds, the time-crunched can undergo an airbrush tanning that sun-gods skin without exposure to unforgiving UV rays or harsh Friar's Club roasts. Using a combination of fine-point- and wide-point-guided guns, Beach Bum's certified airbrush artists will shade and contour a custom-tinted tan to your body's curves, bends, and highway overpasses.
Though only one accent wall drenched in lilac disrupts Paris Skin Care Center of Hoboken’s all-white décor, you won’t be missing color. It appears within the kaleidoscopic palettes at the cosmetics counter, manned by professional makeup artist and owner, Sofia. Using both airbrush and traditional techniques, she makes eyes pop with shadow, gives lips a glossy sheen, and contours cheekbones worthy of a ventriloquist’s dummy—all while masking blemishes. Semi-permanent lash extensions, in either basic or dramatic styles, complete freshly made faces. And though makeup is Sofia’s forte, clients will also want to check out her other spa services. She uses an extra-gentle blend of beeswax and cotton-oil, for example, to minimize irritation and ingrown hairs during full-body waxes, and shoos away stress and muscle pain with deep-tissue and aromatherapy massages.
As the tanning bed's lid closes, a cool breeze starts to blow, a gentle mist cools your skin, and the scents of aromatherapy transform a 12-minute tanning session into a miniature vacation. This S-Class bed is just one of the approximately 10 tanning options that fill City Sun Tanning. Staffers help clients select the right bed, leading them down hallways to an iBed sunbed?which features rotating facial lights?or a X-2 High Pressure bronzing stand-up, which can bronze pallid skin in ten minutes. Alternatively, visitors step onto the AutoBronzer's open-air platform, which evenly sprays UV-free tanning solution. In June of 2009, this sunless system caught the eye of New York Magazine, which lauded City Sun Tanning for having one of the "top five spray tans." The tanning salon has also garnered accolades from Citysearchers, who for several years, named it "Best of Citysearch".
