When you think of a traditional tanning salon, you might imagine rows of tanning beds ready to deliver bronzed skin in 15-minute doses. Premier Tanning Salon is no different?it boasts eight Ergoline beds with four levels, in fact. But what sets Premier apart is that it also specializes in sunless tanning. The salon's Norvell Auto Revolution machine delivers an automated airbrush tan in just three to five minutes, covering skin in a choice of three levels of color. The sun-kissed color lasts up to a week, and it won't rub off on clothes or fluffy white cats in search of petting.
If Suntana’s staff of tanning specialists seems particularly knowledgeable about their trade, it may be because many of them are dedicated tanners as well. They draw on a combination of firsthand experience and industry know-how to help their clients achieve rich, golden skin tones courtesy of customized spray tans and three levels of UV tanning beds. Their expert guidance—along with moisturizing lotions from brands such as Designer Skin and Australian Gold—helps protect against the risks associated with overexposure or lowering oneself into a deep fryer.
Within the cream and burgundy oasis that is Euphoria Body Salon, a team of beautifiers with more than 50 years of combined experience get to work primping, pampering, and painting. Nail technicians administer mani-pedis decadent enough to warrant names like "whipped strawberry," handing each client a glass of bubbly before massaging hands and slicking them with polish. Dermaplane facials resurface tired fa?ades, and hairstylists cut and color the coifs of women, men, and children.
From standup beds to VersaSpa spray tans, bronze-seekers at Tantastics have plenty of tanning options. Along with 12-minute sessions in standup beds, clients can also opt for sessions in lie-down beds, and they can choose from a variety of tanning lotions for deeper color and hydrated skin. Tantastics also offers teeth whitening and professional airbrush tans.
Within a clean, friendly facility, Toucan Tan bronzes bodies with high-quality tanning equipment, such as beds equipped with a specialized sensor that reduces the risk of overexposure, available in Harrisburg. A Mystic tan session delivers a quick, UV-free glow as the tanning booth's airbrush swivels from side to side, glides from head to toe, and experiments with Jackson Pollock–like techniques to shower the client completely in specially formulated body bronze. The booth maintains a warm temperature to ensure that skin remains dry throughout the process, allowing it to absorb the formulation for deep, long-lasting color.
Bodies emerge shades darker after a visit to Caribbean Breeze Tanning Resort. Five different styles of beds bronze clients at different intensities with a selection of lotions that encourage melanin’s climb to the surface of the skin. Airbrush tanning sessions use a pH-balanced solution that tints limbs with natural-looking shades, and patrons receive the UV-free burnish from a tanning specialist instead of automated machines that won't stop unless the patron invokes the First Law of Robotics.
