Convenience comes first at Celebrity Tanning, where a plethora of metro locations, extended hours, and a large lineup of tanning equipment ensure clients can achieve a sun-kissed glow with minimum fuss. Four tiers of UV beds offer escalating amenities that add to the comfort and efficacy of tanning sessions, incorporating extra facial tanners, aromatherapy, MP3 hookups, and inspirational posters of famous suns from other galaxies. For more immediate results, the salon’s automated Mystic Tan booth sends sweeping jets of misted bronzer over bodies to create a streak-free tan that lasts 7–10 days after one 60-second session. The staff of tanning specialists can help customers choose the right type of session for their skin or budget, answering any questions that may come up. Tan-prolonging lotions from brands such as Australian Gold and California Tan are also available to enhance the depth and duration of a tan without equipping clothes with UVA bulbs.
At Derma Bella Progressive Skin Care, aestheticians revitalize complexions with facials that use lemon ingredients to brighten sun-damaged skin or antioxidant-rich raspberries and peaches to restore a youthful appearance. Aestheticians also perform enzyme peels and ultrasonic microdermabrasion, in which an oscillating wand delivers Oxygen Botanicals products deep into skin to remove built-up residue and encourage cellular turnover. Microdermabrasion treatments are gentle, and usually involve no downtime or delay before clients can apply makeup again. Aestheticians also can wax away stray strands on the face before placing it behind glass inside a custom picture frame, where it will remain beautiful forever.
Staff members at Just Glow Tanning and Boutique take care to recommend tanning products from their onsite salon best suited to enhance sessions in their collection of beds made by California Tan, UWE, and Montego Bay. The boutique also sells bathing suits and trendy clothing to show off skin’s new golden hues.
People shouldn’t have to go too far out of their way to look good. It’s an idea that Addicted to Beauty’s Nikki takes quite literally. With her mobile studio, she journeys directly to her diverse clientele, applying makeup and eyelashes onto brides-to-be, models in TV and editorial shoots, and women embarking on a night on the town. Nikki also administers soothing in-home spa treatments, such as European and back facials.
Inside Tan Utopia’s salon, brightly colored bikinis hang from the wall next to other trendy clothing styles for sale, each reminding guests of the warm-weather places they’ll flaunt their new tans. But these tan-complementing clothes and accessories are just a bonus for clients after completing sessions in tanning beds or with UV-free applications. For guests who prefer formula-based tanning, the salon offers hand-painted sunless bronzing. Several brands of lotion and bronzer are also available to help ensure skin holds on to its new golden hue as long as it can.
