While the sun spends most of its day in the sky, it still finds time to hang out in The Riviera Tanning Spa, teaching five different levels of Ergoline tanning beds how to bronze bodies with color that looks like it came from the star itself. From the Ambition bed’s beginner-friendly 120-watt bulbs to the Excellence 800’s simmering 520-watt heaters, tanners of all levels can boost golden hues in as little as 10 minutes. Thanks to their large facility, Riveria can accommodate a high influx of individuals without requiring appointments. Their Autobronzer system also reduced peaked appearances without UV exposure, spraying skin with three levels of sunless solutions that add color that won’t run, streak, or turn blue when placed under a black light.
Tanning wears many glowing faces at Aloha Tan, where beds and sprays gild patrons' pelts with varying levels of toasty intensity. Bronze-seeking customers may turn up the sun dial, amping up traditional bed-tanning potency from level one (a $39.95 value per month) up to level four (a $59.95 value per month). Or opt for a technician-applied airbrush tan to gain a ray-free glow, donning a rich caramel exterior without the beach's UV rays or demoralizing sandcastle-construction competitions.
The friendly bod bronzers at Tan Xpress give pale persons the Midas touch with help from a safe, organic, and paraben-free solution. Relax as a specialist evenly applies a mist of the sun-mimicking formula, delivering a vitamin-packed dose of color, free of the drips, streaks, and blotches typical of butterscotch pudding-based solutions. The sunless mist is customized according to each customer's skin tone and desired shade, and can last anywhere between one–two weeks with proper care and maintenance.
Beach City Tanning Company is a curator of golden skin tones, with an inventory of tanning beds that help patrons build and fine-tune a radiant complexion. The natural tans come courtesy of the spa’s selection of UV tanning beds, which includes five regular and two high-pressure beds, one of which boasts separate tanning bulbs for the face, shoulders, and arms. Beach City also offers Norvell spray tans that can last up to 10 days.
Tropical Sun Tanning owner Donyell Brown guides a team of tanning experts, massage therapists, and hairstylists as they help customers pursue overall beauty and wellness. Inside private rooms featuring warm wood accents, massage therapists employ the gliding strokes of Swedish massage and hot stones to ease tense muscles. Haircuts and color services revamp manes, whereas makeup applications prep customers for date nights. Patrons can obtain a tan while reclining in a tanning bed outfitted with a radio, standing in a tanning booth, or applying Norvell sunless spray-tan formula.
A.J. at Hair Emporium pampers clients from head to toe with an arsenal of beautifying and relaxing services. The Garden State–inspired Jerseylicious mani-pedi applies a glamorous foil finish to trimmed fingernails as well as scrubbed and groomed toenails, and lasts about one week, dazzling passersby and temporarily stunning podiatrists. Durable gel polish adorns digits after a Shellac manicure, and cleansed and toned faces luxuriate under a seaweed mask during the 30-minute express facial. The one-hour body wrap commences with a bow-to-stern body scrub, followed by an ambrosial mud mask and moisturizer. While relaxers unwind in their earthen cocoons, skilled fingers massage the scalp and third eye for 15 minutes.
