Having begun as a single tanning shop in Greenville during the autumn of 1990, Ultratan has since blossomed into more than 70 locations throughout the Carolinas and Georgia due to its popularity and commitment to quality service. Over the years, the collection of spas has accumulated numerous awards such as Best Tanning Salon from the Daily Gamecock for providing the best equipment in both tanning beds and spray-tan technology. As a member of the International Smart Tan Network, its commitment to safe tans also encompasses a passion for keeping their customers educated about responsible tanning routines and never tanning without a helmet.
Sun Station Tanning Studios' cutting-edge equipment aids patrons in their pursuit of optimally sun-kissed veneers. Indulge in a UV-free bronzing with VersaSpa, an efficient and customizable spray tan that leaves skin evenly toned without solar exposure. The glow-gifting enclosure boasts ample space to unwind while bodies are misted into their copper hue of choice. The studio recommends peeking at a list of pre- and post-tan tips for a robust luminescence for 5–10 days, helping patrons maintain color long enough to show off their new looks or work as models for third-place trophies.
After discovering and treating a few precancerous skin cells, Aislin Spangler decided UV tanning was not the way to go. So she researched alternative options, and by the time she teamed up with her friends Emily Meeker and Lauren Salinas in 2009 to form Spray Soleil, she was well-versed in the field. Today, the trio runs a mobile spray-tan company and travels to clients' homes or offices anywhere within Charleston and Greensboro to mist them with paraben-free tanning solutions that are made in the United States and never tested on animals. Those solutions include witch-hazel-infused organic tanners along with the original solution, which coats skin with a golden hue while infusing it with nourishing vitamins and antioxidants.
Spray Soleil's stylists and aestheticians travel as well, brushing rouge on cheekbones or dyes into hair during makeup and hair treatments. Completing the mobile spa is Ellen, a licensed massage therapist with seven years of experience. She uses long, languid strokes, hot stones, or targeted pressure during customizable massages to relieve fatigue and chronic aches caused by injury or part-time gigs as a whack-a-mole.
A tinge of raspberry and almond wafts through the air inside Faux Beach Spray Tan. That is the signature scent of Norvell’s organic amber sun spray tan formula, used to imbue patrons with a streak-free, golden hue. In addition to covering clients with a hint of fresh scent, the formula also works as an anti-aging conditioner that smoothes sun-kissed skin.
After extensive experimentation with various product combinations, the skin scholars at Charleston Spray Tan crafted a formula for an organic, nontoxic dye that imbues patrons with natural, long-lasting color. The spray contains a delicious low-calorie blend of vegetarian ingredients, antioxidants, infused multivitamins, and hyaluronic acids. In each of their three 20–30-minute sessions, customers are evenly coated in a DHA dye for streak-free, nonsticky results, masking cellulite, varicose veins, and skin discolorations. Epidermal artists tailor each tan according to customer's personal color aspirations, be it brown, light tan, or paisley.
