A flock of macaws soars across a bright blue sky, a leopard dips his toes in a serene pool, and jungle vines wind their way through the canopy overhead. This may sound like a hot vacation spot, but it's actually the décor where you're more likely to prep for your next vacation: Boca Tanning Club. Founded in 2002, Boca Tanning Club's tropical-inspired design permeates all of its locations and so does its commitment to customer satisfaction. Its salons feature top-of-the-line equipment and the convenience of 24-hour service, allowing clients to make the sun jealous by tanning in the dead of night. The warming rays of a stand-up booths and Ergoline high-pressure beds impart skin with a deep, long-lasting tan. For UV-free color, Boca Tanning Club also offers spray tanning from Norvell and VersaSpa.
The airbrush artists of Golden Mobile Spray Tan use their special airbrush-tanning equipment to create masterworks of healthy, radiant, muscle-tone-enhancing color on clients from head to toe. The spray techs arrive to patrons' chosen destinations in Hartford or Middlesex Counties and beyond, ready to glaze bodies with UV-free color in preparation for big events, photo ops, and bikini-clad excursions. Techs adjust the color of the organic, botanical solution that can be customized to clients’ skin shade and desired depth of tan.
For first-time tanners, a skin type analysis helps determine what level of glow suits their natural complexions best. Airbrush artists enhance appointments with comfort-focused details, including hair caps, feet protectors, and a privacy pop-up tent to ensure sprays bronze skin and not furniture. Once applied, spray tans develop within five hours to a radiant glow that doesn't require an honorary degree from a lightning-bug university.
Boca Tanning Club salons bronze clients with the help of super tanning beds and booths, as well as UV-free VersaSpa spray-tanning booths. Clients walk past the painted vines, rocks, and rainforest-themed decor before stepping into the spray-tanning booths, which gild limbs in 60 seconds, or into a super bed, which caramelizes skin in less time than a traditional bed. In private rooms, technicians wielding airbrush systems custom shade and contour muscles while de-emphasizing vestigial tails.
Magic Suntan welcomes tan seekers with a variety of standup, bed, and airbrush tanning options. The facility’s beds offer customers options such as adjustable internal air, with varying session lengths to choose from, and standup tanning booths bronze bodies with eight-minute maximums. Technicians manually apply bronzing airbrush tans, and other services include hairstyling, manicures and pedicures, and massages.
