In 2001, the first iTAN Sun Spray Spa opened its doors. It had a simple goal?to make clients feel and look lovely with professional tanning services. Today, the spa has more than 30 Southern California franchises, each offering a slightly different assortment of teeth whitening, tanning beds, spray-tanning booths, and self-serve spa offerings.
The Smart Tan?certified staff prioritizes keeping up with tanning technology by stocking state-of-the-art tanning beds such as the Sun Angel, which uses sensors to customize a blend of UVA and UVB rays, practically eliminating overexposure. Many beds come equipped with stereo sound systems, misters, and fans. Just down the hall from these beauty gadgets, Mystic and airbrush machines bronze limbs without UV rays, and self-administered spa treatments dispense relaxing red-light facials, infrared-heat bodywraps, and aqua massages.
The hair-pampering pros at The Haircutters have trimmed locks and transformed outmoded manes for more than a quarter of a century. Unlike many salons, in which shampooing is a separate service, the team starts off every haircut and style by treating scalps to suds with handfuls of professional products from top brands such as Biolage and American Crew.
Apart from the signature shampoo-and-cuts, the staff at The Haircutters also offers color and texturizing services. Redken color camp for men gets hombres’ heads looking good, and spiral perms cascade with curls. Devoted to client convenience, The Haircutters welcomes walk-ins seven days a week.
Within the clean, earth-toned walls of SoCal Tanning, friendly staffers help guests achieve bronzed bods with a variety of tanning equipment. Magic Tan standup booths mist skin with a natural-looking spray tan, or horizontal or vertical UV beds build traditional tans. The team's tanning-bed family even includes a legs-only machine, which is ideal for parents who spent a day at the beach buried up to the waist in children's sand creations. The salon also offers the beauty-enhancing services of two aestheticians and a hairstylist, as well as red-light therapy that diminishes fine lines, acne, or scars.
At HUSH Heated Airbrush Tanning, certified airbrush technicians wield Evolv. heat-infused airbrush systems to bronze skin with customizable, rich color. Evolv., from the same tanning company that produced Mystic Tan and VersaSpa, uses a formula enriched with argan, grape-seed, and tea-tree oils, as well as a heated applicator, to bestow a solution that can endure the water pressure from a shower four hours after treatment. The tanning spa also has color accelerators and pre-conditioners on hand, as well as scents such as coconut lime or desert bloom for olfactory stimulation.
