A tan often indicates a recent visit to an exotic locale, but with Beach Babe Tan, clients can darken their skin tone without leaving their homes. The mobile tanning company carts its organic airbrush-tanning equipment to locations around the area, instantly bronzing bodies to prepare clients for trips to the beach, weddings, or other events.
A dual-function facility, Lady Jay’s Tanning and Boutique bronzes bodies with spray- and UV-tanning services. Its four reclining and standup tanning beds imitate the sun, gently infusing the skin with a controlled amount of UV waves to create an even tan. Similarly, Mystic spray tanning gives the skin a golden glow, but with an artificial formula designed to last up to one week. A choice of four colors can turn the skin up to five shades darker and aloe vera moisturizers keep it smooth and supple.
Jennifer Cherry, owner of Hot Bodies USA, has stocked her 1,300-square-foot salon with Encore and Ovation tanning beds. Alternatively, customers can supplement their UV tans in the Magic Tan spray booth, which features a bronzing formula that makes physiques look similarly beachy without the need for using UV rays or hanging out only with ghosts. The shop also stocks bronzers to enhance the work of its makeshift suns and provides additional beautifying services including lash enhancement.
Clients at Ideal Tan and Skin Care can slip into UVA or high-pressure tanning beds or opt for sunless VersaSpa tanning. In addition to the booth spray tans, the staff members also airbrush skin for custom color. The in-house aesthetician performs body waxes and FIT body wraps designed to detox the body.
Sun Cheaters Tanning & Waxing is owned and operated by a licensed aesthetician and medical assistant, who ensures that the studio’s beauty services also promote overall skin health. The staff offers in-studio and mobile airbrush tanning services for all skin types, using eco-certified organic DHA solutions infused with hyaluronic acid, green and white tea, lavender oil, aloe vera, and vanilla extract to moisturize and rejuvenate the skin. For hair removal, waxing specialists rid the face and body of unwanted hair with Satin Smooth cream wax, which works is more effective than hard wax, but doesn’t taste as nice as Oreo cream.
Though the bright colors and mod furniture of South Beach Tanning’s numerous salons may tempt clients to kick back for hours, that’s not the staff’s goal. Instead, they strive to provide swift, hassle-free tans that get clients out the door quickly to enjoy the day. Each of the chain’s salons boasts a floor plan that is twice as large as the average tanning salon, which increases the likelihood that a bed will be free and therefore reduces annoying wait times. Guests can choose from five tiers of UV beds, whose successive levels beget increased bulb output and more amenities to imbue swifter, more comfortable tans. For a UV-free glow, customers can opt to hop in the salon’s automated VersaSpa booths, which guide jets of pigmented formula from head to toe in only 46 seconds to grant a look as summery as boat sails composed of stitched-together bikinis.
