At more than 140 locations across the country, the staff at Hollywood Tans maintains an average of 15 booths so its customers need not wait or make appointments for their tanning sessions. Each HT-manufactured, proprietary booth is set up vertically for a more sanitary experience, during which high-performance bulbs bronze bodies in less time than standard models. In addition to UV tanning, Mystic Tan vestibules send out mists of bronzers and moisturizers in one of four settings.
Tan Time’s friendly team boosts complexions and relaxes muscles through a host of luxurious services. Custom spray tans leave skin glowing without exposing it to prickly UVA rays or beach-towel-stealing jellyfish. Choose your intended shade and watch with wide eyes as over the course of two sessions, your bleached-spaghetti limbs assume the appearance of a darker, healthier-looking, whole-wheat variety. Those seeking relaxation below the skin can opt for a 60-minute deep-tissue massage designed to release muscular fibers from the cast-iron chains that ground them to workaday worries. Kristina Edmondson, Tan Time’s licensed massage therapist, will use deep, slow strokes to dismantle stress clusters concentrated around your neck, back, and shoulders like an ocean wave eroding pirate teeth from its wind-swept shores.
At Lakeside Tan, it only takes nine minutes to gild skin in delicately darker tones. Not content with simply offering fast results, the tanning salon also offers three separate paths toward beach-fresh color, tempting clients with standup and traditional tanning beds as well as UV-free airbrush treatments. In addition to dressing skin in sun-kissed hues, patrons can also brighten smiles through simple, speedy BleachBright teeth whitening. An energizing, Fit body wrap helps shave inches of the hips and thighs, and, on the salon side, beauty products from Australian Gold and Swedish Beauty help maintain new looks long after appointments end.
