In every private tanning room at Sun Spot, a shelf and hangers ensconce clothes and satchels. Shoes flop to the floor next to comfortable seating, slipping from the feet of patrons adjusting the volume on personal AM/FM stereos-CD players before the UV bed coaxes out melanin. The UV beds range across six levels of tanning power and sport adjustable body fans so guests can stay cool or find an excuse to redesign the north wing of a house of cards. A parade of clients wanders from VersaSpa booths, which darken skin with a bronzing elixir infused with custom color and moisturizer designed to hide the effects of aging. Slipping out past swaying bamboo plants, visitors pass beneath infrared slimming machines and glass shelves that brim with a rainbow of sun-luring lotions from Norvell and Devoted Creations.
Extreme Tanning has more than 15 booth options, allowing clients to customize tans to their desired specifications. The arsenal of booths includes names such as Heartland, Ergoline, and Matrix, all with different bulb and wattage settings. The shop also has a standup Mystic Tan machine that uses a spray potion to evenly cover bodies in a rich bronze. Extreme Tanning also has stand-up, bronzing, and high pressure tanning beds.
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.
At Tans By Tina, spray tan artists paint clients in a golden hue of choice. One hour after a careful bronzing that hugs all contours to create a slimming effect, clients can shower and watch the tan develop over the next 24 hours. The tan, itself, lasts up to seven days. To make the event a social one, Tans By Tina also offers onsite spray tan parties, ideal for showers, bachelorette parties, and birthdays.
Sun Tanz Tanning's clean, spa-inspired environment is equipped with five types of UV-tanning beds, customized sunless-tanning services, and a spread of body-glowing lotions. The spray-tan option buffs pigmentless physiques with a golden, sunless tan without harmful UV rays or hearing the sun's curse-laden whispers. Applied by the steady hand of a trained tan technician in less than 20 minutes, the customized spray session uses an alcohol-free, DHA-infused solution that is designed to create a natural glow reminiscent of summers spent on the beach or winter vacations spent on the sun. Pale patrons can sit in on six faux sunsoaks from any of the bronzing cocoons, such as the standup bed for an even tan or the Tanses TX-52 Mega bed for optimal color in the shortest amount of time.
Typically performed entirely separate from one another, tanning and laundry can now be enjoyed in one facility thanks to Laundry & Tan Connection. The company’s collection of tanning beds grants customers a wide range of skin hues, from sun kissed to deep bronze, and its VersaSpa spray-tan booths deliver a tan that lasts seven days. Meanwhile, high-capacity washers and dryers whir as they cleanse clothes, their gentle humming reminding tanners that they’ll never again have to choose between cleaning a shirt or getting a tan.
