After more than 20 years in business, Ultra Tanning & Contempo Day Spa has had plenty of time to build a spa menu that features much more than just tanning. The services here now include five types of massage, as well as a diverse selection of skincare treatments ranging from a papaya brightening facial to micro-needling. Hair stylists and nail technicians beautify clients in the salon, while some of the private treatment rooms are outfitted with automated hydration and red-light therapy machines.
Of course, tanning is and will always be Ultra's specialty. There are four levels of tanning beds, including the Velocity, a futuristic bed with an added level that keeps clients from having to recline directly on the bulbs. Of course, you can always opt for an airbrush tan, which can be customized to better define muscles or achieve that two-tone look that will probably be all the rage one of these summers.
As a trained aesthetician and makeup artist, Jade Olsen has seen it all, from glitter-dusted eyelids to fake gashes across the face. But more importantly, she has personally applied it all. It is with this hands-on experience that Jade has honed her aesthetic skills, which she showcases from within Tropical Sun Tanning Resort. During makeup applications, bare faces are dolled up with smoky eyes, glossy lips, and blushed cheeks using top-quality products from Urban Decay, Temptu, MAC, and Ben Nye. Lash lines are also given the royal treatment as Jade darkens and defines them by painlessly applying natural-looking extensions or miniature steel scepters to each individual lash.
Spray Tan LA’s fleet of tanning techs are dispatched daily to deliver natural-looking hues with mobile spray tans. They arrive at abodes armed with organic tanning formulas, pop-up tents, and all necessary equipment. After the formula is applied, a cosmetic bronzer leaves skin with an instant golden sheen while tans deepen over the next 24 hours.
Beach Bumz Tanning & Swimwear cultivates beach-ready bodies with an array of tanning solutions. Clients can relax in warm tanning beds or enjoy UV-free spray tanning with Norvell Amber Sun products. To further prep guests for the beach, the shop stocks swimwear and cosmetic teeth-whitening products.
Each of Hollywood Tans' 140-plus locations, scattered from coast to coast, houses UV tanning booths that allow patrons to tan while standing for 8–11 minutes. With an average of 15 hygienic booths per salon, patrons rarely encounter waiting times and can stop in without an appointment. Hollywood Tans also offers UV-free methods of adding color to one's skin, including Mystic Tan's DHA-infused spray tans, tanning lotions, and public readings of guests' teenage diary entries.
The sun can be fickle. Cloudy days or chilly temperatures can all interfere with a day of sunbathing. At Bayside Tanning, none of these factors ever become problems for clients seeking the look of evenly sun-kissed skin. Before every appointment, staff members will work with patrons and recommend a customized regimen tailored to their skin type as well as their goals. The studio features four different levels of cutting-edge Ergoline beds, which can simply develop a base or provide a thorough, all-over tan without unsightly pressure points. Additionally, Bayside Tanning also offers UV-free alternatives for visitors seeking a naturally bronzed look in preparation for a special occasion.
