For Glo On The Go's owner, Gail Ward, tan skin seemed like an impossible dream. With a strong history of skin cancer in her family, she knew tanning beds and booths were off-limits and turned instead to bottled tanning lotions and creams, trying nearly every one she could find with less than ideal results. So when Gail?s sister Esther told her about airbrush tanning, she decided to give it a shot?and was amazed to discover she had finally found a method of self-tanning that worked for her skin type and, best of all, looked natural. She was so impressed, in fact, that she decided to open her own tanning salon in order to share airbrush tanning with melanoma survivors and other clients concerned about the adverse health effects of traditional tanning.
Nine years?and 30 spray-tan-solution tests?later, Gail took her commitment to counteracting paleness one step further by developing her own line of custom spray-tan solutions. The custom formulas allow Gail and her staff of skincare experts to match clients? skin types to the solution best suited to their needs. The Clearly Tan Light solution, for example, is ideal for skin that burns easily, whereas the salon's go-to formula, Beautifully Bronzed, is fortified with anti-aging and skin-strengthening ingredients such as amino acids and vitamins A, C, and E, making it an ideal option for nearly anyone, but especially those looking to avoid scurvy.
When MTV’s MADE was in town and needed to complete a dramatic makeover for the episode “Ladies Man,” the show knew whose door to knock. As L Spa Modern’s experts bronzed the episode’s Don Juan-in-training, they added yet another tan to the more than 25,000—including thousands of wedding tans—they’ve completed in the past nine-plus years. The salon’s automated airbrush platform darkens skin to a choice of three shades in just 10 minutes so guests can get in and out and on with their plot to mock the eternally pale moon. Before or after sessions, clients can sip complimentary cappuccinos, mochas, and lattes, or 14 kinds of tea.
In as little as 12 minutes, patrons can bronze their bodies in Tanning Haven’s Matrix bed. It is outfitted with more than 22,000 watts and six facial tanners. Less intense tanning options, such as base beds and standup beds, are also available and allow clients to relax for up to 25 minutes each session. For those wanting a glow sans UV rays, an airbrush tan or dip in a bath of melted pennies does the trick.
Opening doors for 24 hours a day, seven days a week is an exhausting proposition for any doorman, unless he's a robot. That's why Anytime Fitness?having redirected its robot budget into tanning beds, and cardio equipment with built-in TVs?installed a keycard-activated security system instead. The electronic guardian keeps gym members secure while admitting them at any time of day or night for their workouts.
During daylight hours, certified instructors incinerate calories with group fitness classes or Latin-inspired Zumba dancercise. Personal trainers coach clients in one-on-one sessions, tailoring regimens to each individual's level of fitness, past injuries, or number of tentacles. To relax after workouts, staffed tanning beds stand by to bronze bodies.
