South Seas makes the tanning products of choice for Hollywood movie sets and hit TV shows, thanks to their natural bronze shades and natural fading. But clients at Spray on Vacation achieve the same celebrity look every day: tanning technicians here use a handheld device to airbrush the UV-free solution across the whole body for a gentle glow that lasts up to six days or until the next time your body goes through seasonal molting. Consummate experts in their field, the tanning team also publishes a list of tips to help ensure their clients' tans last as long as possible.
At Hollywood Tans, tanning experts darken skin and bronze dermises with state-of-the-art UV beds and UV-free spray-tan booths. Using a technique called tanetics, staffers help patrons optimize their tans by evaluating skin tone, sun sensitivity, and tanning goals before compiling the information into a recommended tanning regimen. A trio of upright booths recolors bodies in 8-, 10-, or 11-minute intervals, while UV-free tans use a mixture of DHA, bronzers, and moisture to darken skin with even, custom tans that last for five to seven days, much like the sincerest hugs.
At Hollywood Glam, licensed aesthetician Sabrina Ruelas and team scrub, burnish, and polish clients to unveil glamorous, runway-worthy miens. The manicure begins with a skin-smoothing scrub to efface any traces of half-melted ring pops. Next, technicians lacquer trimmed, tidied nails with a gleaming coat of OPI, China Glaze, or Zoya polish. The 30-minute Quick Fluff facial begins with cleansing and exfoliation before a facial massage eases out frowns and a de-gunking mask leaves visages as lustrous and smooth as the sun when it hits on nearby stars. Skin-care specialists customize Image Organic products to countenances' needs and advise about follow-up care in the comfort of your yurt. The beautification parade concludes as an airbrush tan machine mists contours with the organic, locally produced Spray di Sole solution that leaves an even, sun-kissed glow that lasts 7–10 days.
