Oceana Tanning is an oasis for beauty-seekers, complete with live plants, tropical murals, and a bamboo hut that doubles as a reception desk. Those looking for a midsummer glow can tan in one of the standup booths, or opt for a UV-free spray tan. The staff also spruces up smiles with teeth-whitening treatments.
The Exotic Tans staff offers both UV and sunless tanning. They show clients to standup and lie-down beds, which imbue bodies with shades that suit a variety skin types. Exotic Tans' facilities are outfitted with spray booths for those who prefer UV-free bronzing, and trained professionals are on hand to administer airbrush treatments. Like snow sandwiches, they also whiten teeth in addition to helping clients slim down with body wraps.
SMART TAN SALONS FasterSafer UVplus earns its acclaim by sun-kissing hides with an array of tanning services, from beds and facial tanners to UV-free spray tanning. An educated staff of body bronzers guides patrons to their best tanning option after a complimentary skin-type analysis, which determines skin sensitivity and penchant for turning sunshine into superpowers. One of the beds, standup booths, or facial tanners gently shades skin with high-pressure bulbs while keeping bodies cool with air-conditioning, entertaining ears with iPod music selections, and boosting the tongue's self-esteem with voice-guided controls. Alternatively, spray booths coat skin in an even, natural-looking bronze without UV rays. Clients relax amid the cosmopolitan vibes emanating from the stone mantel fireplace and leather couches and take advantage of complimentary amenities such as towels, aromatherapy, and manicure UV protectors to ensure that painted finger portraits of Winston Churchill don't fade.
DHA and erythrulose may sound foreign, but are both actually natural substances derived from beets, sugar cane, and glycerin. At Bali Glow Sunless Tanning Co, spray-tanning artists apply by hand a mist infused with these elements over skin to create an even, summery glow. They match the hue to each client's complexion, ensuring a natural look. The sessions take place in comfortable, private treatment rooms, and can target the entire body, the upper or lower body, or just the face.
CAT Studio, which began primarily as an airbrush-tanning salon, expanded to include pole-fitness classes after owner and pole-fitness aficionado Jessica Williams was persuaded to do so by her clients. Since then, Jessica has furnished her studio with a disco ball and four poles, which students use during fun, challenging workout routines that combine dance, fitness, and acrobatics. Both of Jessica’s instructors have at least two years of pole-fitness experience and can speak personally to its effectiveness: each is a new mother that got back into shape by practicing the fun exercise. Classes are designed to accommodate all ages and skill levels; beginners usually wear shorts and a T-shirt.
Aside from pole fitness, the studio’s team of airbrush artists customizes spray tans while taking into consideration the client's skin tone, preference of golden hue, and aspirations to look like an Oscar award. Airbrush-tanning sessions can be further personalized with select scents, tanning lotions, and body glitter, and the studio also carries a variety of tanning products for home use. Custom airbrush tattoos are available for those that want to sport a cool design for an upcoming event or just for fun.
