The specialists at each of Bronze Bay Tanning Center's locations craft custom plans that emphasize building a tan while avoiding burns. They work to help those new to UV beds acquire a base tan and aid seasoned bronzers in reaching new shades. Within colorfully walled rooms, warm-skinned patrons slip out from UltraSun and SunScape units, thankful that the sun is now only used to give cowboys a cool way to leave parties. Air conditioners in UltraSun TurboPower 25000 S units pour out cool air, and the SunScape SS755 produces an even, all-over tan with the aid of frosted acrylic surfaces. At some shop locations, clients foster summer glows with tanning lotions from brands such as Swedish Beauty and Australian Gold.
At Blue Seas Hair and Nail Salon, a savvy nail specialist beautifies finger shingles and toe shells with indulgent nail services. A 45-minute manicure softens cuticles before the digit artist files down rough edges and adorns nails with a polish of the patron's choosing. During the spa pedicure, the appendage coddler pampers feet for one solid hour, clipping each nail to perfection and removing all the brown M&Ms from the snack tray in their sneaker's dressing room. Toes go on their merry way with a fresh coat of polish and an astronaut-like bounce in their step.
Patrons descend upon Tiki Tan to bronze bodies bathing in UV-free spray-tanning booths or reclining in tanning beds. Tanners can opt for the luxurious Mystic HD Tan session to relish in a UV-free glimmer as a formula concocted from natural ingredients gently canvases physiques in a choice of four golden shades, resulting in up to 10 days of bronzed hide. Clients can step into the Mystic HD Tan spray booth, which is warmed to near one's body temperature—customizable for humans or crested geckos. After the application, a light puff of air dries newly painted epidermal landscapes so clients can get dressed as soon as the session finishes.
Sun Tan City’s trained tanning consultants help clients get bronzed via UV-free tanning booths and ergonomic tanning beds. Guests can schedule a single visit to touch up an existing tan, purchase a multivisit package to get a discounted rate, or become a member to take advantage of the salon’s 100% guarantee.
Some tanning professionals are content to let machines do their work for them, but not the tanning experts at Spray Tans Express. Instead, they apply each and every spray tan by hand, using a manual spray gun to spritz physiques with an odorless formula rich in skin-softening vitamin E and aloe. By eschewing the spray-tan booth, Spray Tans Express ensures each client's tan is applied evenly and without the type of unflattering lines created by lying in a tanning bed or sleeping in the shade of a hunk of swiss cheese. What's more, the formula reacts with the natural amino acids in the skin to create a custom, natural-looking glow, and it won't expose bodies to the potentially dangerous or wrinkle-causing effects of UV rays.
During 10- to 15-minute sessions, Air-Tan's technicians lightly dust the epidermis with an airbrush-tan formula self tanner balanced out by aloes and citrus oils. The tanning formula can be customized for any skin tone, helping everyone blend in at the beach as easily as a chameleon blends in on a newly tanned tree branch. Results will vary, but some tans can last for up to 10 days. See a list of frequently asked questions here.
