The customers pouring out of Sunnyside Tanning Spa might be boasting a brand new patina, but their sunny disposition isn't just a product of the salon's three levels of UV beds. It also stems from the fact that owners Gena and Neal have tried hard to make their tanning spa a place where customers come to hang out, whether it means staying longer to chat with the friendly staff or perusing a boutique area stocked with trendy clothes, jewelry, and handbags. The comforts even extend into the tanning room, where UV beds come equipped with amenities such as personal air conditioning systems, high-pressure facial lamps, and even vibrating bases that may help to firm skin and muscles or jiggle loose change from behind the ears. The salon's knowledgeable staff is also on hand to help the sun-shy by applying a Norvell Sunless airbrush tanning solution, which uses a trio of bronzers to deliver a shade customized to the client's skin tone.
