Carolina Sun's aestheticians envelop anatomies in FIT Bodywraps to release toxins, quicken blood flow, and work toward supple, tightened skin. During each one-hour session clients nap or read as they burn up to 1,400 calories––roughly the equivalent of fighting in a kangaroo boxing match. The FIT wrap’s infrared heat speeds up metabolism, causing bodies to sweat out toxins, and toasts fat tissue to inhibit the formulation of cellulite. Once the arms, abdomen, upper thighs, and lower legs are snugly bundled, clients can adjust their own temperature in single-degree increments. Getting burritoed in a FIT wrap can alleviate joint stiffness, boost immune systems, and help reduce cellulite while enhancing the body’s natural salsa-and-cheese flavors.
Kellie, the tanning artist behind Glo To Go Customized Sunless Tanning, burnishes skin tones with high-quality airbrush tans customized to each individual's skin. Particles of DHA deepen the skin's hue to a golden brown without streaking or leaving behind orange splotches that falsely indicate a Cheetos addiction. Kellie recommends gently exfoliating skin before appointments and avoiding moisturizers, perfumes, and oils on the day of the session.
The certified airbrush artists at Save Your Skin Tans manually spray clients with standard and organic sunless tints in sessions that take less than 15 minutes. The line- and streak-free bronzing solution applies evenly to skin for approximately one to two weeks, allowing tanned bodies ample time to convince the sun that it's still summer. Regular and organic tans match pigments to clients' complexions instead of turning corporal casings seasonal shades of pumpkin.
Altima Tan caters to both bed traditionalists and spray enthusiasts with a wide array of bronzing equipment. The Mystic Tan booth quickly spritzes on a golden glow in about a minute's time, and the SunFX airbrush artists paint on a custom hue with a chemical-free tanning solution. Its lie-down and standup beds are all made in the United States, their UV rays enhanced by a selection of tanning lotions, moisturizers, and oils that smell like freedom. For those who just can't warm up with UV rays, the salon offers infrared body wraps, which gently heat insides to aid in detoxification and burn calories.
At Club Beauty, wander up and down the cheetah-print stairs of the two-story salon and spa for a day of pampering. Head to the pedicure station, where guests relax on the cushioned-topped bench built into the gray tiled platform and soak their feet in the footbath below. Nearby, a purple velvet dining chair relaxes clients during standard and shellac manicures, and a white brick fireplace is the perfect spot for quickly melting off old polish. The vibrant red, modern chairs in the salon area host clients getting haircuts, extensions, and blowouts.
The bronzing pros at Sinfully Good Body & Soul have figured a few things out about standup tanning. Not only does it let the body bask evenly in a 360-degree glow of UV rays, it prevents the tan lines and creases that lie-down tanning can cause. Additionally, upright booths prevent contact with the bed’s surface, so clients can be assured of a sanitary session, free from sweat droplets and shadow particles of past customers. The crew here also offers airbrush tanning for those looking for a UV-free look, and the salon’s top practices have earned it multiple nominations for Akron-Canton’s Hot List.
Indian Summer Tan & Retreat keeps bodies beautifully bronzed with traditional bulb and spray-on tanning services. The 15-minute airbrush tans use an FDA-approved sugar spray to darken skin with two coats, leaving bodies sporting a sun-kissed glow without the possibility of burns or the risk of sentient tanning booths falling in love with customers' glistening calves. The center's airbrush technology keeps technicians in control of the tanning process, ensuring even color that matches natural tan lines with delicate finesse. Airbrushed tans usually last for three to seven days, allowing skin tone to effortlessly transition between beach-worthy tans and pallor sufficient to infiltrate circles of Victorian aristocrats.
