Kix Tanning's Smart Tan?certified staffers help patrons achieve natural-looking bronzes with a choice of five levels of UV beds and two sunless-tanning options. Tanning contraptions in private rooms await guests in the form of beds and the max stand-up booth, which plays stereo music and blows cool air at 22 miles per hour, much like the contented yeti sighing. The AutoBronzer spray-tan booths darken physiques with three-second bursts of DHA tanning solution, or certified technicians can apply spray tans by hand wielding an airbrush. Ergoline Beauty Angel booths use red-light therapy to help reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and cellulite, as well as improving circulation.

David and Joan Kelders first opened Jason David Hair Studio in the late '80s. Nearly a decade later, they moved next door to the Metropolitan Hotel, where they've cut and styled hair ever since. David draws on 47 years of tress-tending experience to helm a team of skilled stylists, whereas Joan handles the front desk six days a week. Under their direction, the salon purveys hair and makeup treatments, such as cuts, color, and Brazilian blowouts, as well as tanning services, which make use of a Sun Capsule booth to darken skin, as opposed to a paintball gun loaded with navy-blue pellets.

From its own sleek, minimalistic decor to the deep bronze hues that clients leave with, Cocoa Tanning Studio is all about looking good. At each location, customers step into UV tanning beds, and standup booths and emerge with even tans. Each ergonomically designed capsule is outfitted with eco-friendly bulbs and an MP3 plug-in, so tanners can relax while listening to Top 40 hits or an LP of auto-tuned cicada chirps. Guests can also lounge in the salon's infrared carbon sauna, which soothes aches and rejuvenates the body with infrared light. Tanning lotions from Australian Gold, California Tan, and Swedish Beauty are on hand to enhance any UV-based tanning session. Cocoa Tanning Studio also offers other services such as teeth-whitening.

In addition to vita-vibe sessions, the staff at Banana Tans—all of whom tan at the studio—have made it their mission to help their clients find that perfect level of tan. Visits include skin analysis, after which staff create a personalized tanning regimen that slowly eases guests into their tans. The staff is also serious about maintenance. Extensive cleanings of each tanning bed wipe down glassy interiors and also go inside the machine to remove ray-blocking dust or the souls of old sunsets. One of Vancouver's largest selections of indoor tanning products lines the walls of the studio, aiding those in pursuit of the perfect tan with bronzing agents, cooling creams, and capillary-opening unguents that accelerate tan development.
