Harness the compliment-baiting powers of lustrous skin while avoiding vampire-loving Twihards. Glow Tan & Spa’s attentive staff is committed to making sure your needs are met during your visit. After only 10 to 15 minutes of application, you’ll enjoy a healthy, pleasant-smelling, streak-free glow. Glow Tan & Spa can also touch up sunburned areas, as well as any clown makeup that stubbornly refuses to fade. Unlike your roommate’s homemade miracle deodorant, the sugar cane–based spray dries quickly and lasts between 7 and 10 days.
At all 24 TNT Tanning locations throughout northeast Ohio, clients tan hides a healthy golden hue with the latest tanning beds and spray-tan booths. While at the salon, they can peruse shelves lined with skincare and tanning products such as bronzing powders, tanning lotions, and sunless sprays. To enhance the contouring tanning achieves, they can also swaddle themselves in a Fit body wrap designed to burn calories and reduce body fat.
Since Spray U Tan focuses solely on airbrush tanning, each one of its clients leaves with a glow that lasts five to ten days, even though none are ever exposed to harmful UV rays. The salon achieves this by arming staff members with airbrush wands loaded with a custom shade suited to each patron's skin tone. Once so equipped, these staffers mist bodies from head to toe, conjuring golden skin tones the way alchemists conjure excuses for why they seem to never actually turn anything into gold. The salon takes appointments, but it also happily accepts walk-ins, so guests can peruse the selection of tan-enhancing lotions while waiting for their turns in private treatment rooms.
The owners of Lava Tanning & Massage stock their storefront with premium UV beds, as well as offer UV-free spray tanning procedures, earning their Salem location a spot on Looking Fit magazine's list of the Top 250 tanning salons in 2009. During visits, staffers help guests fight cellulite with a botanically based body wrap, combat stress with a massage, or work to diminish wrinkles and ill-mannered comparisons to shar-peis with a red-light therapy session.
Altima Tan caters to both bed traditionalists and spray enthusiasts with a wide array of bronzing equipment. The Mystic Tan booth quickly spritzes on a golden glow in about a minute's time, and the SunFX airbrush artists paint on a custom hue with a chemical-free tanning solution. Its lie-down and standup beds are all made in the United States, their UV rays enhanced by a selection of tanning lotions, moisturizers, and oils that smell like freedom. For those who just can't warm up with UV rays, the salon offers infrared body wraps, which gently heat insides to aid in detoxification and burn calories.
Open until 10 p.m. Monday–Thursday, TanQuest Sun Spas can bronze bodies after sunset with Mystic Tan spray booths and UV-emitting capsules from Ergoline and Soltron. Warm air flows through the Mystic HD booth as its automatic airbrushes spritz bronzer that lasts up to one week. UV beds cradle limbs on Bodyform rests and pipe in tunes via on-board sound systems, and upright UV booths are modeled after the one the sun sets up to sell its golden kisses. To heighten the effect of a tan, the staff lightens teeth to a brilliant shade of white and collects limited-edition Designer Skin lotions and Swedish Beauty accelerators in their boutique.
