Once they've entered Tropical Tanning, guests face a choice of three doors, but their decision shouldn't exactly be fraught with suspense—behind each door lies high-tech tanning beds with three levels of tanning pressure waiting to gild bodies to the tunes of a built-in radio or iPod docking station. Tanning associates help newcomers choose the right bed, and can also explain the benefits of the tanning creams that adorn the salon's faux tiki bar. Infrared-sauna treatments send beams of warming light into bodies, inducing the same raised heart rate as moderate exercise or really intense chewing. Murals of tropical sunsets, hammocks, and beaches adorn the salon's walls, and a life-size dashboard hula dancer waves goodbye on the way out.

At California Tanning, clients don't usually find themselves standing in line waiting for a bed. The studio has 15 of them, which baste pale skin in a range of hue-shifting rays, from easy entry-level tans to 25,000 watts of bronzing pressure. Alternatively, Mystic HD spray gets skin glowing without UV rays. Clients have only to step into the booth and follow the voice-assisted instructions, and the automated sprayers coat exteriors with custom micromists of color.
