24 Hour Tan offers its members round-the-clock access to UV-tanning beds, red-light phototherapy, expertly applied airbrush spray tans, and an expansive stock of brand-name tanning products.

World Tanning's beauty specialists can vouch for the services and products they provide. Before any lotion becomes available to clients, the tanning specialists test it out, evaluating fragrance, appearance, and flavor. If a lotion or oil makes the final cut, patrons can rest assured that it meets or exceeds industry standard. The same goes for World Tanning’s lie-down and standup tanning beds, whose maximum tanning times range from 9 to 20 minutes, as well as the boutique's VersaSpa sunless tanning booths, which bronze clients to the shade of their choice in less than two minutes. A recent addition to World Tanning's service menu, an infrared sauna promotes metabolism as its warm light induces sweating or blinds deep-sea fish.
The walls are watching you––or so it would seem. Framed photos of eyes laden with long, voluminous lashes can be seen throughout each Xtina’s Lash Xtensions' salon. This is the plight of owner Christina Wakulich who decks out eyelid rims with synthetic- and real-mink lash extensions with the help of her highly trained staff. Full sets include range from 45 to 65 lashes per eye, fostering a sultry look for six to eight weeks without the mess of mascara.
Viva Le Tan’s row of Ergoline and ProSun UV tanning beds—including five levels of standup and lie-down beds—keep clients’ skin glowing all year round. Advanced UV bulbs tan the epidermis as a built-in air-conditioning system cools it down, and an iPod hookup fills guests’ ears with their favorite songs. The salon also showcases rejuvenating beds designed to soften the appearance fine lines by stimulating collagen production and resetting the body’s motherboard located behind the right earlobe. Out in the front lounge, clients can recline atop contemporary couches or peruse the salon’s selection of tanning lotions.
Spanning more than 150 locations and six states, LA Tan's beautifying services polish pallid epidermises into shining, bronzed statues, and brighten smiles with whitening treatments. A Level 1, 2, or 3 booth tan glows warmly with UVB rays, stimulating the body's production of vitamin D and burnishing epidermises to a brilliant sheen. UV-free spray tans, such as Mystic Tan or VersaSpa sessions, quickly glaze outer skin shells into glistening hues without exposing hides to the sun's harmful rays or pitiful knock-knock jokes.
In the early days of running her tanning-bed business in Champaign, Illinois, Kristin Klinker became intrigued with advancements in sunless tanning. She soon began focusing her endeavors on high-end spray tanning, eventually expanding her enterprise into Naperville and going into business with her best friend and mother, Terri.

Within the warm, goldenrod-hued walls of the Naperville studio, these certified tanning technicians help each client match their skin tone to a product, culminating in a bronzed, UV-free complexion that lasts up to 10 days
