Totally Tan’s turquoise-colored salon, festooned with beach artwork and tropical foliage, eschews traditional sun-drawn tanning techniques with a collection of body-bronzing devices that embellishes skin in the face of time constraints and inclement weather. Lay-down tanners recline in the SunVision Elite bed for 20-minute sessions that darken epidermal expanses with 32 light bulbs and hundreds of commissioned fireflies. Visitors can also achieve golden exteriors by standing in the SunDome tanning booth, basking in the powerful glow of 48 light bulbs for 10 minutes. Those wishing to elude UV rays altogether can enlist their soul cages in a spray tan that evenly coats bodies in a deep, natural-looking hue that lasts around seven days.
Brushed Tanning Studio's skilled spray-gun wielders provide a healthy alternative to traditional sun worship with UV-free sunless-tanning treatments. Using an FDA approved, 100% organic formula derived from raw sugar cane, certified technicians carefully cover every curve and contour with a golden glow that gradually appears over the course of 24 hours. The entire process takes as little as 10 minutes and lasts an average of 7–10 days, though results can last up to two weeks for clients who exfoliate sparingly or are particularly adept at time travel.
You might think that standing up while you tan would cause an unnaturally darkened scalp, but this never happens at Hollywood Tans. That's because their arsenal of signature stand-up tanning booths create an always even, natural-looking glow in as little as seven minutes. With more than 140 locations nationwide, the chain’s salons—each a veritable bronze mine for pale bodies—can also bronze physiques Mystic Tan’s Instant Tan, a sunless formula that does not contain UV-rays or infectious California boy-band harmonies. Voted "Favorite Tanning Salon in North Jersey" by an independent readers' poll in Suburban Trends magazine, Hollywood Tans of Riverdale can also help customers choose the Instant Tan formula best suited to them, matching the bronzing serums to the each person's skin tone, type, and ideal look.
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.
