To put it simply—and in their own words––the staff at Aric Ashely Salon are in the business of making people look and feel their best. To that end, they stock the salon's shelves with a full line of Redken styling products to aid them in every cut, corrective-color service, and elegant updo. For a transformation that’s truly head to toe, aestheticians deploy wax to whisk away fuzz from lip to leg and render faces flawless with airbrush makeup.
At Oak Tan, seven types of tanning beds coax out sun-kissed color. Some stave off sweat with cooling systems; others bronze cheeks with facial lamps. Even the salon's basic bed, Tropical, boasts 31 body lamps and 10 facial lamps. Those who want to avoid UV rays completely can step into the Mystic Tan booth for a spray tan. With all these options, customers aren't left to choose one on their own or even with a roll of an eight-sided dice. Instead, the staff has been specially trained to guide customers to the optimal tanning method for their skin type and color.
Darque Tan's arsenal of beds, booths, and nourishing lotions infuses visiting bodies with sun-kissed color. Along with at least 20 tanning beds, each location brims with tan-savvy staff members?each certified through the International Smart Tan Network?who can work with you to customize a program based on your tanning goals, skin type, and relation to black-and-white movie starlets. A dedicated full-time cleaning staff regularly runs through a 50-point inspection process between sessions, helping to create a sanitary tanning experience and keep clients from warming up 6-foot-long paninis during appointments.
Because the existence of so many types of tanning equipment can sometimes make tanning intimidating, Perfect Tan’s staffers are always on hand to help clients establish a tanning regimen based on their skin type and tanning goals. By asking a few simple questions, the staff can help clients choose from three levels of tanning beds and a UV-free, sunless Mystic spray-tan booth that leaves bodies evenly bronzed in about 20 minutes. Their tan plan determined, clients recline in lie-down beds from Ovation, Encore, Solart, and Bravo, or they stand in a 2M standup tanning booth so they can keep balancing stacks of dinner plates on their heads.
A wildly successful alternative to traditional day spas—its more than 300 locations blanket 36 states and half a dozen countries—Planet Beach Contempo Spa is a futuristic relaxation station where state-of-the-art machines administer all the spa and tanning services. These friendly automatons sometimes replace familiar treatments, such as the Luminous facial, a light-based service that delivers blemish-busting results similar to those of a conventional facial. But other equipment maps out new spa territory entirely: the Hydro-Derma Fusion chamber moisturizes the whole body with nutrient-rich steam in order to offset the effects of a dry climate or a rear-end collision with a salt truck. Other machines whiten teeth, spray-tan skin, and massage muscles.
Planet Beach operates on a gym-style membership system, meaning members purchase packages or pay flat monthly rates. As members spend more time at the spa, they get to know the helpful assistants who are always on hand to demonstrate how to use the equipment without activating its ability to cry.
The technicians at Express Tan apply custom spray tan in a fine mist, leaving skin sun-kissed without the sun's damaging effects. Tans can be tailored to your desired level, whether it be bronze, silver, or gold, without the metallic aftertaste. Safe and swift, the Infinity Sun Spa spray-on system is the only multi-treatment skincare system based upon high-volume, low-pressure turbine engineering, a technological progression that helps prevent the appearance of streaks, blotches, and crop circles. To make tanning more accessible for all in-need bods, Express Tan keeps its skilled sprayers on-hand seven days a week, with sessions available by appointment only.
