With their skin warm and newly darkened, patrons slip from the traditional tanning beds at Electric Beach. A gentle sibilance drifts from rooms where tanning technicians spray down patrons while keeping the individual’s skin tone in mind. They also draw upon lotions that prep epidermises with pH-balancing skin conditioners and keep skin tan. The studio's shelves brim with products from Australian Gold, Designer Skin, and Splash Tonics, all of which help protect skin, improve the tanning process, or serve as identification on a yacht.
Unless you live on a tropical island or sleep in a tanning bed, you probably don't have a year-round tan. That's where Electric Beach comes in. The salon houses an array of beds equipped with pampering technology, such as aromatherapy misters and MP3 player-compatible sound systems. Spray tanning takes the UV rays out of the process, instead treating skin to a natural bronzing formula that grants an even, sun-kissed glow.
Sun Kissed Tanning Spa helps clients maintain their glows with tanning beds and custom-applied UV-free spray tans. Additionally, its staff administers spa services including body wraps and Twilight Teeth whitening treatments, which use the UV light of tanning beds to accelerate the whitening process.
The founders of Soleil Tans believe that a trip to the tanning salon should feel like a mini-vacation—a welcome respite from the stress of work, the chaos of exams, or the company of a pet dog who just learned how to play the theme to Three's Company. They've packed their sleek, modern salons with powerful standup booths and tanning beds, outfitted with amenities such as music players, air conditioners, and adjustable air showers. There's even specialty beds designed to target upper bodies, faces, and legs.
The salons are staffed by sunless tanning specialists boasting extensive training and experience in the art of spray tans. They airbrush skin with a UV-free Norvell formula, customizing applications to accommodate varying skin types and desired looks. The staffers can also equip clients with professional skincare products that help moisturize skin, as well as teeth-whitening solutions that work to brighten smiles during UV-tanning sessions.
Ultimate Tan boasts 16 different tanning bed and booth models, some of which even feature special amenities such as shoulder tanners, air conditioning, cooling misters, and aromatherapy. Ultimate Tan also offers Mystic Tan UV-free tanning, which allows clients to customize their own spray tan to their desired darkness or glow-in-the-dark level.
Euro Bronze Tanning gives clients seven paths to golden skin: a Level 1, 2, 3, and 4 horizontal bed, a Level 4 standup bed, a UV-free Mystic Tan machine, and airbrush tanning. The UWE Level 4 bed uses high-pressure facial and shoulder tanners and envelops clients in body mists and aromatherapy. The Supersonic standup booth is ideal for quickly achieving a caramel color as it bronzes in seven minutes. Mystic Tan booths imbue skin with golden hues in only a few seconds. The other UV-free option—airbrush tanning—may take 20 minutes, but it includes a barrier-lotion application plus precise tanning-solution applications to ensure that the airbrush artist coats every square inch and creates a realistic-looking 24-pack.
