Bright, vibrant colors envelop clients at Tan Tyme Salon from the moment they walk in. Hot-pink and orange stripes interrupt large swaths of yellow in the reception area, accented by white shelves lined with products. A warm orange room with sun ornaments on the walls houses a tanning bed. Elsewhere, technicians use airbrushes to coat clients in a rich, golden glow.
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.
Slender Bodies' trained technicians have been beautifying client exteriors since 1998. Their toning and detoxifying natural sea-clay body wraps—which aim to reduce the appearance of cellulite and stretch marks—are the bread and butter of their practice. They augment these wraps with thorough interviews beforehand and with straightforward advice for how to eat, shower, and perform the worm for 10 days after the wrap.
Clients at Southern Rays take control of their skin shades by using customizable UV- and sunless-tanning systems. Beds and booths come in six levels of UV intensity (up to a $25 value/session) so that clients can gradually prepare for the day when humans migrate to the sun. The Mystic Tan HD system (a $30 value/session) applies spritzings of UV-free tanning solution in the privacy of an individual chamber, and airbrush tanning paints pelts in each client’s most suitable shade. Southern Rays’ knowledgeable staff is always on hand to answer questions, provide tanning tips, and console useless sunbeams. Check the equipment page to see which services are offered at which locations.
No Lines Tanning emblazons beach-fearing epidermises at The Hair Cafe. For some, the horrors of Halloween linger for months afterward, lending their skin a pale hue as if they've just seen Alf. Calm cowardly complexions with a cheery spray tan, which includes a PH balancing primer. Spray artisans make sure each customizable tan is free of unsightly lines, unless clients wish to flaunt a legendary tic-tac-toe game with a tan-too replica.
Whether you want to build a base tan, develop deep color, or evenly coat your skin in a bronzing solution, Bella Bronz Tanning has a bed for you. Relax for 20 minutes in the Sundash bed, which helps develop a base tan, or for 12 minutes in the Affinity 800 bed, which simultaneously gilds skin while cooling it off with aromatic misters. The standup tanning booth produces a golden hue in 9 minutes—or what the empirical system of measurement refers to as a "Firm Handshake." UV-free options include Mystic Tan spray tans that coat skin in a preheated bronzing solution, or air brush tanning that doles out a custom-color application.
