HOT on Spring's sunless-tanning system offers a safe, non-harmful way to combat a waxen complexion, even skin tone, and erase tan lines that inexplicably spell out swearwords. During the session, pasty patrons are sprayed top to toe with a gentle bronzing mist for a natural, sun-kissed glow. With swimsuit season reaching critical mass, a quick spritz of spray tan brings reluctant beachgoers up to speed with their Apollo-worshipping cohorts. In addition to helping vitamin-D junkies cheat nature, HOT on Spring is a purveyor of quirky, youthful accessories, breezy clothing, and beauty products. Step into the bold, trendy boutique salon for some [thre•vo] products, a line of tanners, bronzers, and lotions based on snow-boarding culture, and a few flowing, summery tops.
Visitors to SunSpa Tan & Body can achieve sun-kissed glows in one of two ways: with canisters of Mystic Tan's chromatically diverse DHA tanning solution or in 1 of 12 UV beds. With the close of a booth and the press of a button, Mystic Tan's elixirs nourish skin with infusions of aloe vera and antioxidants in a hue that suits each patron's unique complexion or beach-based excuse from jury duty in around 60 seconds. The diverse lineup of UV beds boasts features that range from open-air designs to speedy eight-minute bronzers. Newly tanned physiques can then retreat to the spa, where aestheticians help free them of imperfections with serums infused with Dead Sea salt and parafango mud.
Heralded in Tanning Trends magazine, True Colors Tanning introduces skin to advanced bronzing technologies at a number of Louisville-area and southern Indiana locations. Each of the five levels of standup and lie-down ultraviolet-tanning beds is equipped with specialized cooling systems and ergonomic surfaces to maximize client comfort. Alternatively, experienced staffers can apply airbrushed tans or spray tans by Australian Gold in the time it takes to count 180 seconds using a laser-guided system.
After spending many years under the glow of UV rays, Ashley Menard noticed an alarming trend—wrinkles, freckles, and spots were beginning to pop up. Determined to do right by her skin, she decided to forego the sun and tanning beds for alternate modes of bronzing. She earned a certificate in airbrush tanning and now artistically sweeps on gilded coats of UV-free color inside her salon, Faux Finish. Preferring the artistry of airbrush tanning over automated booths, Ashley’s personal touch tailors shades to client specification or same-day weather forecasts. In addition to airbrush tanning, Ashley has honed her makeup-application talents through private lessons under Linda Mason and Jill Glaser, two of the industry’s leading figures, and can craft flawless faces with regular or airbrush techniques, and is well-versed in performing body wraps.

Norvell sunless solution produces an even, natural-looking tan without leaving orange hues, blotches, or unpleasant odors.
