Before the hue-imbuing techs at Glow Tanning Salon can bronze clients, they have to run a gauntlet of Smart Tan certification exams. They learn the history, science, and law surrounding UV tanning—a knowledge pool from which they guzzle when helping customers make decisions about products or tanning beds. Confident in the expert guidance, neophytes can safely build a base tan in a Level 1 bed, maintain a dusky glow in a Level 4 bed, or shun UV altogether with a Norvell airbrush tan, customized to each client’s skin type. Glow Tanning Salon also stocks Red Light Therapy beds, which permeate and heat the superficial layers of skin to gradually clear up acne, fine lines, and wrinkles. To give clients a taste of the tanning life and encourage tourism on the sun, the salon hands out one free UV session.
