Guests who come inside any of Malibu Tan’s many locations are greeted with a handshake. Though that might seem like an old-school approach to customer service, Malibu Tan’s owner encourages it as a genuine way for his staff to connect with each client and provide them with customized services. For more than 15 years, Malibu’s friendly staffers have also connected with higher-profile clients—including the Houston Dymano Girls team—by helping them choose the best of each facility’s tanning options for their skin types. With UV tanning, regardless of whether a client prefers a supine or standup system, they are bound to get a strong tan, as all UV bulbs are changed 200 hours before they hit capacity or finally crack open and release a butterfly. There are also plenty of UV-free options such as VersaSpa sunless tanning, which darkens exteriors with a hydrating DHA-based solution. Each location also offers tan-enhancing products from Swedish Beauty and California Tan.
Epique Massage's licensed therapists aid bodies in brushing off tension with a variety of time-tested massage techniques in addition to forward-thinking equipment such as HydroLuxe massage beds that are outfitted with water-jets. In their repertoire of hand-delivered modalities, traditional Swedish massage tames stress with smooth strokes, while strategically placed hot stones melt subdermal tension and any accidentally swallowed ice cubes. With Epique's unique membership packages, clients can make massage a part of their general wellness routine, right alongside regular exercise and hourly sock changing.
Tanners browse through Sunny Beach's stock of skin-darkening equipment—including several speedy UV beds and a VersaSpa spray-tan system—and choose the tactic that best fits their bronzing fancies. Both stand-up booths and traditional beds are available in multiple wattages that toast skin to the golden perfection of perfectly toasted toast (tan times vary from 12 to 20 minutes). VersaSpa offers non-UV sprays to clients who prefer 60-second flesh revisions; seven different sprayable combinations of prep, bronze, and/or moisturizer are available to accommodate the seven ethereal manifestations of your body.
Bronzing beams and sun-free scintillation services hone hues of every sort at Tan Masters II. Shade shamans blend concoctions customized to individual skin types before applying an artful eye to airbrush skin with a UV-free glow. Sessions typically last a fleeting 15 minutes. Sprayed solutions are sugar-based and freshly scented, making an airbrush application ideal for immediate romps through fields of dandelions or fields of delicious pie.
For a long time, getting a much sought after sun-kissed glow meant lying outside for hours or taking tedious trips to the tanning salon. At Maquillage Pro Beauty’s three locations, they’ve discovered a better way. There, trained technicians skillfully wield airbrushes, custom-crafting natural-looking tans that don’t require exposure to the harmful effects of UV-rays. In addition to their traditional spray tans, they also offer sessions with the Evolv. system, which mitigate the chilly nature of most airbrushing systems with a heated, tea-tree-oil-enriched solution.
It’s all about personal comforts at Sempre-Bella, a boutique salon specializing in spray tans and teeth whitening. This emphasis is experienced in several ways, including the organic spray-tan solution that is customized to suit each client’s skin tone and smell preference. In addition, clients watch the flat-screen TVs as they lounge during 15–30 minute teeth-whitening sessions. The staff also aims to ease minds with the help of an RDA-certified dental assistant who is on hand to answer any whitening questions. To help clients maintain new looks at home, Sempre-Bella’s crew recommends products from Bella Terra’s collection of tanning lotions, Bella Terra mineral lip-glosses, and Caspah skincare.
