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.
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.
Since opening in the early 1990s with just four stores, L.A. Tan has expanded into a national brand that counts more than 180 locations in six states. Members can tan at any location they wish, selecting from services that range from at least five levels of high-end UV beds to spray-tan booths from top brands such as Mystic Tan and VersaSpa. Anyone unsure of how to navigate all the options can seek advice from one of L.A. Tan's certified tanning professionals, who know each tanning bed on a first-name basis. They also give consultations, build custom packages based on individual skin type, and offer take-home products that help tans last longer. Dependent on the location, spray tanning systems will vary; call desired location for further details.
Though you can choose five different ways of tanning at Solara Tanning, the result is always the same: flawless golden skin. The only difference is how fast you can achieve this tan, and the amenities available while doing so. The salon features four levels of beds, which beam UV rays at skin in both stand-up and lay-down models. Alternatively, the salon's Mystic Spray Tan booth spritzes skin with a pigmented spray during one-minute sessions, and tans continue to develop over the following day. The Smart Tan?certified staff can help clients select which mode of tanning is best for them or debate whether or not the sun will come out tomorrow.
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.
The bronzeologists at Back from the Beach Spray Tan transform skin tones with swarthying solutions customized for each client. Diffusing a fine mist of Norvell formulas, they coat physiques from top to bottom in colors that complement skin type without the orange hue that sometimes comes from UV tanning or diving into a ball pit filled with tangerines. Tan technicians can aim for a light and natural-looking bronze aura, or apply a more coppery hue that mimics the effects of sunbathing. For bodybuilders, the spraying staff reaches for the deepest color in stock to better highlight muscle definition beneath stage lights.
