A friendly staff stands ready to introduce bronzers to custom Norvell spray tans through a wide selection of basic to high-pressure tanning beds as well as DaVinci teeth-whitening treatments. Premier packages grant tanners unlimited access to Sunna’s assortment of standup and lie-down beds, including models with facial tanners, ideal for fostering base tans, and beds with built-in fans that keep climates comfortable and inhospitable to Viking invaders. Alternatively, the tanning technicians can custom-blend the Norvell UV spray-tan solution to find the best golden hue for each body. The staff then deftly deliver even coats of color that can last for up to 10 days, using nozzles that help remove uneven tan lines caused by falling asleep beneath a ladder. Each private room stores a host of amenities, including a remote-controlled stereo system as well as fresh towels and lotions.
In music, the term adagio means "slow tempo." Likewise, Salon Adagio serves as an oasis amid the hectic bustle of daily life, commanding clients to relax with a variety of spa and salon treatments. The spa's aestheticians erase blemishes with chemical peels or use noninvasive ultrasonic technology to jump-start collagen production and firm skin tone, and massage therapists relieve muscle tension with relaxing or therapeutic modalities. Along with painting nails with chip-resistant Shellac polish, technicians round out mani-pedis with soothing paraffin treatments and scented scrubs. At the salon, stylists shape tresses into trendy new looks, and a Mystic Tan booth—available at the Rogers location—bronzes skin evenly without exposing it to the harmful UV rays emitted by tanning beds and solar-powered calculators.
At all of Q Nails And Tanning's stations, the cosmetologists and manicurists display their licenses, and they're happy to talk about them with customers. That's because, in addition to being highly trained in their fields, the staff members take pride in their ability to foster easygoing conversation and cultivate a social, laid-back environment where clients feel comfortable and welcome. As clients and technicians engage in comfortable back-and-forth, fingers and toes find their own things to brag about, including new sets of acrylic, gel, or pink-and-white nails that enable them to steal the thunder back from player pianos. Once fingers and toes are looking polished, clients can better the rest of the body with lie-down or standup tanning sessions, as well as facials, waxing services, and eyelash extensions.
Darque Tan's arsenal of beds, booths, and nourishing lotions infuses visiting bodies with sun-kissed color. Along with at least 20 tanning beds, each location brims with tan-savvy staff members—each certified through the International Smart Tan Network—who can work with you to customize a program based on your tanning goals, skin type, and relation to black-and-white movie starlets. A dedicated full-time cleaning staff regularly runs through a 50-point inspection process between sessions, helping to create a sanitary tanning experience and keep clients from warming up 6-foot-long paninis during appointments.
Realizing that every minute spent primping takes away from their clients' free time, the staff of Body & Sol Tanning Boutique streamlines their services so clients can get in, get bronzed, and get out. Clients can simply walk in to the chain location closest to home, after which they consult with the Smart Tan-certified staff over which tanning method is most suitable for their skin. After deciding on intensity and length of sessions, clients hop into one of the five tiers of UV bed. The salon also offers UV-free options such as the automated Mystic HD booth, which is loaded with four different shades of tanning pigment, all of which seep into skin through the use of heated rays. Clients can choose to deepen tans with a range of Devoted Creations tanning accelerators, or simply heighten a tan's contrast with surgically implanted angel wings or the salon's BleachBright teeth-whitening kits.
