The staff at Tan Factory bronzes their clients’ birthday suits with UV-free airbrush tanning for the entire body, enlisting the manmade sunshine found in California Tan products. During the 20-minute sessions, tanning technicians slather hides in sun-kissed hues that can last from 7–10 days or until clients tumble into a vat of Liquid Paper. Tan Factory continuously seeks out current technology and supplements its spray applications with lotions from Australian Gold and Swedish Beauty. Tanning mavens recommend exfoliating beforehand and wearing loose clothing to the sessions, and recommends that customers avoid any moisturizers, fragrances, and laser-light shows on the day of the treatments.
Visitors to Solar Escape Tanning Lounge are granted a natural golden glow courtesy of one of many tanning beds and booths. The tanning spa?s collection of skin-enlivening equipment includes Matrix tanning beds with MP3-player compatibility, products by Devoted Creations and sunless products by Norvell.
At more than 140 locations across the country, tanners stand and Hollywood Tans delivers. Each salon has an average of 15 Hollywood Tans–manufactured standup booths that gilt pelts with high-performance bulbs, resulting in speedy tans. Since each location offers so many booths, no appointments are needed and clients are rarely asked to wait around or scrounge for scraps of sunlight. For a UV-free experience, the salons furnish their glow spas with Mystic Tan, a standup spray-tan booth that operates at four levels in less than a minute. To keep hides healthy, the shops stock their own brand of lotions, skincare products, and shower gels.
