Owned by Nicole Livaudais, Tanique has provided customers with nail services and a golden hue year-round for the past decade. Hands can be dolled-up during manicures that are finished with a traditional polish or LCN UV Gel nails, which are durable high-grade plastic tips that can withstand constant hand washing and catfish noodling. Meanwhile, Smart Tan-certified staffers are always on hand to advise guests on each bed’s functions and Livaudais offers private consultations. Whether visitors are looking to build a base tan or to reach new levels of bronze, the salon offers an array of advanced UV equipment. Tanique offers Sundash Pro, Ambition Turbo, and Silver Bullet lay-down beds, as well as Starship Ultra standup booths–all of which come with cooling devices and high-powered bulbs.
You might think that standing up while you tan would cause an unnaturally darkened scalp, but this never happens at Hollywood Tans. That's because their arsenal of signature stand-up tanning booths create an always even, natural-looking glow in as little as eight minutes. With more than 140 locations nationwide, the chain’s salons—each a veritable bronze mine for pale bodies—can also bronze physiques Mystic Tan’s Instant Tan, a sunless formula that does not contain UV-rays or infectious California boy-band harmonies. Voted "Favorite Tanning Salon in North Jersey" by an independent readers' pole in Suburban Trends magazine, Hollywood Tans of Riverdale can also help customers choose the Instant Tan formula best suited to them, matching the bronzing serums to the each person's skin tone, type, and ideal look.
Although the decor of many tanning salons takes inspiration from the beach, Euro Tans' waiting room speaks to an elegant spa experience. Upon stepping into the beauty haven, customers are greeted by marble tile, white-leather couches, and Grecian columns framing the entrance to the tanning area. Within, clients bronze their skin via tanning beds and booths, Mystic and airbrush tanning, and solar flares sealed inside of mason jars. Apart from tanning, the Clifton location offers waxing services for both men and women using hard-wax systems made to improve comfort during waxing. The spa also provides relaxing facials for clients seeking to unwind.
For the past nine years, Designer Skin Tanning & Spa has been pampering customers with convenient, custom tanning and spa services. Open seven days a week, the business offers walk-in tanning (except for spray tanning, for which reservations are required) from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. Monday through Thursday, 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Friday, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, and 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sunday, so customers can easily fit tanning into any hectic work or goat-milking schedule. Eight UV beds help pale bodies to acquire the best tan for their skin type, and custom airbrush spray tans highlight contours with golden, sun-free highlights administered by female tanning professionals.
Shelves stocked with the brand's own signature Designer Skin tanning lotions share space with other high-quality tanning products from Swedish Beauty and Devoted Creations. Beyond combating chronic pallor, the spa also offers soothing facials, body wraps, and waxing services to keep skin smooth and Mac makeup to keep faces from fading away.
