At Tan Utah, experienced staffers help patrons select tanning plans to suit their beauty goals. From a hue built gradually in a UV bed to a Mystic booth's instant bronze, tanning experts help clients find the right look to stand out. As a distributor of top-flight tanning accouterments, the team gets such up-and-coming technologies as the Beauty Angel system, in which a therapeutic red light bolsters collagen production while a vibrating platform stimulates circulation.
Behind the glittering glass storefront of Jersey Tan, four levels of tanning beds glow ready to equip bodies with a burnished hue. Their specially designed lamps caress skins with UV light in up to 20-minute sessions, kicking the body's melanin into high gear. Alternately, a sheer coating of carefully calibrated color airbrushes skin in a Mystic Tan booth, giving a sun-kissed look without the UV exposure of making out with the actual sun.
At E-Clips Salon & Boutique, each stylist's workstation is packed with an array of styling tools and professional products for an extensive repertoire of aesthetic services. Bottles of Paul Mitchell and Redken coloring products sit alongside assorted scissors and hair clippers, and drawers abound with feather extensions, waxing products, and colorful nail polishes. Committed to beautifying customers in their entirety, the team of stylists also oversees an onsite boutique, where racks of chic blouses, flowery dresses, and designer jeans make it an ideal venue for fashion hunting or games of pin the tail on the mannequin.
Beaches Tanning Center's arsenal of newly updated tanning beds and spray-tan booths unveils gateways to sun-kissed skin. Six kinds of Ergoline beds bronze complexions to natural-looking umber hues as ventilation keeps bodies cool and music keeps ears distracted from the sun's desperate pleas for attention. Clients can go UV-free in warm Mystic Tan chambers, where an oscillating nozzle evenly coats skin with a customized cocktail of bronzing color.
Except for the stream of bronzed bodies emerging from its doors, Tahiti Sun Tanning could be confused with a traditional day spa. A hallway of private treatment rooms suggests the seclusion typically associated with facials and massages, because staff members believe tanning deserves this same luxurious feel. Clients bronze in ultra-ruva or high-pressure beds from brands such as Wolff and Ergoline as stereos keep ears entertained. In another room, customers can get custom spray tanning with Norvell spray-tanning treatments. On their way out, clients can buy tan-enhancing lotions and creams from the boutique to prolong their skin’s golden hue.
Trained technicians at Secret Beach Tanning give epidermises an expertly bronzed finish with UV-free Norvell airbrush tans. Clients first collaborate with the tech to pick out the skin shade that best matches their hair or lucky penny. Next, patrons don disposable garments and a hair cap before skin dons a DHA-based browning solution. Tans usually develop over the course of a few hours, after which outer epidermal layers sport an even, golden tan that typically lasts around seven days. Secret Beach Tanning suggests showering and shaving before the session, as well as not wearing makeup, deodorants, or full jousting armor, as they can prevent skin from absorbing the tanning formula correctly.
