Anytime Tan Tanning Club first powered up its trio of German-made tanning beds in September, 1985, during the peak of the decade’s indoor-tanning boom. But just as bulky car phones and shoulder pads have faded away in the years that followed, Anytime Tan Tanning Club has stayed on top of trends by acquiring the latest equipment for its eight area locations.
The staff members at each location can pair clients with all manner of machines, from powerful Ergoline beds and booths to innovative sunless-tanning solutions from VersaSpa. For added vanity, most of the salon’s locations offer professional teeth-whitening services. And the Robinson location even provides Evolv sunless tanning and innovative red-light therapy, which aims to diminish signs of aging or the fact that someone enjoys napping on pizzas.
The staff members at Hollywood Tans guide their customers to the best tanning options for their skin types with a variety of booth and bulb intensities and their own specialized line of indoor tanning lotions. In addition to the high-performance stand-up tanning booths, they also offer UV-free tanning options powered by Mystic Tan.
Salon Karma's owner, Alexis Stimmel, boasts more than 20 years of salon experience and certifications from the Aveda Institute and Graham Webb. She oversees an aesthetically driven cast of beauticians that augments outer appearances with services for hair and skin. The talented stylists reconfigure coifs with conditioning treatments, haircuts, and coloring services powered by Schwarzkopf Professional products. During Salon Karma’s 15-minute spray-tan sessions, a steady-handed airbrush technician helps bodies achieve new, darker hues without having to stand in paintball crossfire. Upon entering the salon, customers feast eyes on colorful art resting on bright, warm-hued walls that contrast with pieces of dark furniture.
The culmination of more than two decades of research by Wolff Tanning’s experts, the four SunVision Pro tanning beds at Ultimate Bronze II darken skin tones with the help of lotions and accelerators by Australian Gold, Supre Tan, and other professional brands. Similarly, the salon’s spray tans imbue bodies with an even, natural-looking glow that helps clients stand out on the beach or blend in with stacks of pennies when the vault guards make their nightly rounds.
Though Ultimate Bronze II sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
Equal parts tanning salon, hair salon, and spa, Olympis Tanning, Salon and Spa welcomes relaxation seekers into tranquil confines marked by warmly lit hardwood ceilings and floors. Stylists give clients their undivided attention during haircare appointments, cutting, coloring, and styling strands to suit each individual's facial features, and spa experts dole out massages, hydrating facials, and full-body waxing treatments. Three types of tanning beds dot the space, including a standup booth from America's Greatest Tan, and technicians stand at the ready to darken pelts artificially with Norvell sunless spray formulas or a caramel coating.
