Disenchanted by common tanning pitfalls such as orangy tones, blotchiness, and harmful UV radiation, Bronzed Envy owner Blakeley set out to deliver safe and natural mist-on spray tans from Salon Republic. Rapid Glo's raw-sugarcane formula reacts with the proteins of the skin to draw out a golden-brown sheen lasting up to 10 days using certified organic DHA while being paraben-free. Administered in about 20 minutes, the tanning process, like Polaroid shots of tortoises, takes about four hours to fully develop.
With an airbrush tan, you can instantly transform your look, shocking friends and startling enemies into revealing their secrets. Airbrush Tans of Austin sprays you with an all-natural aloe-based bronzing solution packed with body-boosting vitamins and customized for your skin tone. A butterscotch hue can mask unsightly skin woes (spider veins, cellulite) while also slenderizing, shaping, and making your teeth shine brighter than a metal suitcase in a microwave.
Both a mobile tanning service and a one-stop bronzing hotspot, Rock & Sol imbues clients’ skin with natural, deeper color without using harmful UV rays. During 10- to 15-minute tailored airbrush sessions, technicians first custom-blend a solution to match each client’s current and desired skin tones. Next, a technician applies two coats evenly over the body, resulting in a coppery glow that, like the Statue of Liberty's original bronze finish, lasts approximately 7–10 days. The odorless, organic, and alcohol-free solution employs an FDA-approved sugarcane derivative called DHA, which reacts with epidermal cells to darken their natural pigment. In addition to their storefront, Rock & Sol also operates a mobile tanning service, journeying to homes, offices, or aquariums in the Austin area to tan gaggles of friends or help albino goldfish finally fit in at school.
Darque Tan's arsenal of beds, booths, and nourishing lotions infuses visiting bodies with sun-kissed color. Along with at least 20 tanning beds, each location brims with tan-savvy staff members—each certified through the International Smart Tan Network—who can work with you to customize a program based on your tanning goals, skin type, and relation to black-and-white movie starlets. Sessions take place in private rooms that line a column-flanked hallway, where five different levels of UV beds give skin the perfect level of tanning. Mystic Tan and VersaSpa sunless-tanning systems imbue clients with a hydrating, natural-looking glow, which can be customized according to skin tone, desired shade, and spirit animal. A full-time cleaning staff keeps each center in pristine conditions by referencing a 50-point inspection system. Most locations have books, televisions, and kids’ play areas to keep children entertained while adults are bronzing.
A recent addition to the Austin community, X-Treme Tan pairs its bronzing services with a mission to educate locals on the importance of living a healthy lifestyle. An array of tanning beds ranging from levels 1–5 are available to guests and geared toward various skin types and goals. The Level 5 Matrix basks bodies in the maximum 33,00 watts of of sun-imitating power and is the only machine of its kind in the area. Each bed and stand-up pod graces torsos and limbs with color in sessions that last 20 minutes or less. For those who prefer to stay vertical, a Level 4 Quantum standup booth shades skin in 10 minutes with a fleet of 51 refractor bulbs. Light-shy folk and Greta Garbo impersonators will favor custom spray tans. The formulas by Norvell Skin Solutions offer clients a choice of different shades to match their skin's undertone and are applied by Cedar Park's only Norvell-certified airbrush technicians. X-Treme Tan has won a number of accolades, being described as "best of the best" by HillCountryNews.com, and "Best of ATX" by K.V.U.E. News..
Calling upon their training and certification from the Natural Glow Training Institute, the tan technicians at 360 Tans carefully color patrons with custom airbrush tans. The sure-handed staff utilizes a water-based Natural Glow solution rich in organic DHA, which is designed to dry instantly and keep pores unclogged. For the sake of convenience, team members also provide patrons with disposable thongs or boxer shorts, which double as tangible souvenirs for an imaginary vacation.
Tucked inside Jamila Salon Suites, Maquillage Pro Beauty taps a host of natural ingredients and organic skincare brands to fuel prettifying services with the transformative powers of Mother Nature. The spa's staff of experienced aestheticians keeps exteriors shiny and new with synthetic eyelash extensions, organic airbrush tans, and Temptu airbrush makeup. Spray-tanning techs warm up complexions by spritzing hydrating, organic tanning solutions from handheld devices on waves of room-temperature air or bursts of warm air during an Evolv. airbrush tan. Skilled makeup artists can doll up patrons for special occasions with Temptu oil-based airbrush makeup, the same professional makeup used on Hollywood film sets to give movie stars and horror-film creatures a subtle, fresh-from-the-beach glow.
