Beach Bum Tanning's high-tech beds, sunless booths, and tailored beauty treatments regularly appear in press outlets such as Allure magazine. The salon's heated Mystic HD booths spritz bodies with vibrant pigment while warming skin to ensure optimal and even color saturation without having to bear-hug King Midas. Certified Airbrush Artists also implement customized airbrush tans over 150 ways by using a combination of fine-point-guided and wide-point-guided guns to shade and contour a custom-tinted tan to the body's curves, bends, and highway overpasses.
Your tan comes to you at Beautynglow on the go, a mobile airbrush tanning company. Upon arrival, professional airbrush wielder Liz sets up a tent and spraying area to keep your home from improving its complexion. Their tans last a week to 10 days, and tanners are advised to avoid showering for eight hours after their session so that it sticks.
It is easy to turn plants into a salad, but it is harder to turn them into a natural-looking tan. Shade Bar Organic Spa & Salon, named a top spray-tanning salon by TimeOut New York, Citysearch and CBS New York, does exactly that, though, bronzing physiques with signature organic spray tans that glow and fade evenly. The focus on natural beauty products doesn’t end there, though—it permeates the entire aesthetic center.
Shade Bar Organic Spa & Salon’s facials, which each begin with a personal skin analysis, often incorporate Manuka honey masks that improve cell regeneration, or masks crafted from seaweed and geothermal clay. Body treatments also draw on organic ingredients that moisturize dry skin and slim physiques, a process that was historically only possible by squeezing into an hourglass. A Goldwell color bar, professional makeup applications, waxing, and tension-relieving massages round out the center’s suite of aesthetic services. Every other week, a beauty advisor from Shade Bar Organic Spa & Salon dishes beauty tips on the Telemundo New York morning show.
At In Bloom Tanning, American Tanning Institute–certified employees help customers to achieve deep bronze glows with a mélange of tanning services. Featuring four levels of tanning beds and a domesticated solar flare, In Bloom’s luxurious Ergoline, Wolff, and MegaSun beds offer customers of every skin type a range of UV tanning options. For a sunless treatment, expert techs coat skin with a DHA-based formula. Unlike the plot of a documentary observing grass grow, spray tans develop quickly, providing a sun-kissed glimmer in as little as 15 minutes.
Each membership level offers a distinct set of benefits, ranging from the simple tonal bliss of the basic bronze-level experience to the top-tier transformative power of lounge-chair tanning with the diamond package. Depending on the individual level and bed, guests can enjoy on-board amenities that may include the use of climate control, cool misting sprays, aromatic fragrances, and MP3 player inputs. Certain beds even have an open-air design to help alleviate feelings of claustrophobia and burritophobia, the fear of appearing delicious.
