Stylist Ciara Guffey is part of a skilled team of 16 stylists, nail technicians, and tanning experts who beautify clients at Sunrise Tan & Salon. She delivers cutting-edge haircuts and color treatments within the salon’s bright-red walls and works at a sleek styling station with oversize mirrors, which help her create even dos while keeping an eye out for low-flying paper airplanes. The salon also houses a small boutique area, where clients can shop for professional haircare products from Matrix and Sexy Hair.
At Hush Tan, the sun is basically an obsolete invention. The salon’s bronzing process eschews damaging UV rays, and instead relies on a tanning formula from Infinity Sun—a blend replete with botanicals, vitamins, antioxidants, and aloe. The team applies the formula by hand to create sun-kissed glows that also conceal blemishes such as cellulite, varicose veins, and temporary tattoos that can’t take a hint. Owner Mahriah Zimmerman, a licensed esthetician, complements the tans with makeup and waxing treatments, including her signature eyebrow wax that shape brows to suite the client’s bone structure. During every treatment, Mahriah prides herself on creating a luxurious experience for her clients that is private, free of judgment, and customized to their needs.
Bask Tanning & Airbrushing functions not only as a tanning salon but as a destination for spa-style pampering. Through the sleek, black-and-tan lobby, visitors head to rows of private rooms where airbrush technicians mist bodies from head to toe with all-natural, organic tanning solution. You'll also find a variety of UV beds. Meanwhile, aestheticians armed with products from Yonka Paris deep-cleanse skin during facials to lessen the appearance of fine lines, hyperpigmentation, and lingering evidence of no-hands pie-eating contests.
The mission at Organic Bronze Bar is to provide a consistent and enjoyable experience where clients get their needs heard and are always provided with cutting edge options. The talented professionals prides themselves on designing beautiful hair by merging up-to-date hair technologies and fashion trends in color, cuts and hair products that create the best results. The salon boasts high-end product lines such as Moroccanoil, Bumble & Bumble, Inoa Organics and Matrix.
Instead of relying on harmful rays, Organic Bronze Bar’s organic, paraben-free formulas call upon natural ingredients such as walnuts, antioxidants, and pure botanicals to deliver a safe, natural-looking glow. Eschewing a “one size fits all” experience, the staff custom blends each solution to suit differing skin types and applies it by hand to ensure even and streak-free coverage that dries instantly. The odorless solutions can be further enhanced with the addition of SPF, hydrating solutions, or bear repellent. Tans typically last 5–10 days with proper upkeep.
AuRycl Tan owner Pashia Fischer knows the ins and outs of the spray-tan business. A former operations director for a large sunless-tanning company and a tinting artist for a loyal clientele, Pashia struck out on her own in May 2011 and hasn't looked back since. Along with a team of friendly account managers, she markets her proprietary line of sunless-tanning products across the country. Pashia's solutions—from an odor-free spray tan to a fast-drying bronzing mousse—bring a hint of sun to numerous salons and image-conscious owls.
Inviting aptly describes Bronze and Bliss Day Spa, a tanning salon and day spa with a home-like atmosphere. The beauty spot's warm interior presents a selection of Versa Spray Tanning and red light therapy, along with Formostar Body Wraps and luxurious facials rendered in private rooms. Skilled lash specialists apply sets of mink or silk eyelash extensions with polished service. They can also indulge guests with a Infrared body wrap to increase metabolism, burn calories, reduce cellulite, and contour body.
There may be one simple goal at Urban Tan—to attain a dark, sun-kissed body—but there are many ways of achieving it. This tanning facility stocks numerous tanning booths and beds equipped with a veritable selection of designs, lamps, and features that help each client receive the tan that they prefer. Take, for instance, the Miracle Sun Saturn—its lamps produce specialized ratios of UVB to stimulate melanin production and just the right amount of UVA to oxidize the UVB into a rich, even brown tone. The KBL America 4500 system includes 400-watt facial tanners, and the Ergoline Excellence 800 Turbo features VibraSound so that tanners don’t have to squeeze their favorite pop singer into the booth with them. In addition to their advanced tanning equipment, Urban Tan carries more than a dozen lotions from Swedish Beauty, California Tan, and Designer Skin.
