Hollywood Tans prides itself on two main attributes—first, the salon franchise outfits each of its 140-plus locations with proprietary stand-up booths. These booths brim with high-performance bulbs that darken skin and blind pores in sessions of 8–11 minutes. As an added benefit, the stand-up booths are highly sanitary, as they eliminate the skin-to-booth contact inherent in lie-down booths. The company’s second major asset is its efficiency—patrons can pop in without appointments. To round out the profile of tanning options, Hollywood Tans offers UV-free Mystic tans and maximizes the efficacy of UV sessions with lotions and oils.
The Perfect Tan's staffers analyze skin tone before directing clients to standup UV-tanning units or customizing an airbrush tan with three colors of Norvell bronzer. A fleet of state-of-the-art standup UV tanning units, set at two levels of intensity, imbues limbs with a sunny glow. 54-level beds impart a solid base tan in four or five 10-minute sessions, and 42-level units gradually bronze over the course of five or six sessions or one sleepover party. Though not included in this Groupon, The Perfect Tan's cabinet full of deluxe tanning products can also augment bronzing sessions.
The licensed, experienced staff at Boca Salons Day Spa & Tanning banishes stress and discomfort from organ empires with a kaleidoscope of body-bettering spa services. The 90-minute Boca massage pampers bodies from head to foot with a rubdown that focuses on specific problem areas––such as a habitually sore tennis elbow or ping-pong pinky ($95). For a slimmer, firmer physique, guests can opt for the 60-minute peppermint-sea-twist body wrap, which employs freshly harvested seaweed and peppermint oil to rejuvenate skin, contour the body, and improve aches and water retention ($100). Revamp overworked hands and feet with a classic manicure ($16+) and pedicure ($35+) that polishes digits so they may shine like a disco ball gone supernova.
At Tansmania, trained and certified tanning advisors help customers achieve their tanning goals with a variety of beds and UV-free tanning options. Customers can choose from four different levels of tanning beds as they work toward their optimal hues with the aid of products. In addition to tanning, the salon features a private cedar-planked sauna room that radiates with infrared heat. Guests can recline in the cozy space as patented Tecoloy heaters raise the temperature and LED lights stimulate skin cells to promote cellular regeneration. The relaxing experience is heightened by the aromatic scent of the wood and customers' choice of music.
With their skin warm and newly darkened, patrons slip from the traditional tanning beds at Electric Beach. A gentle sibilance drifts from rooms where tanning technicians spray down patrons while keeping the individual’s skin tone in mind. They also draw upon lotions that prep epidermises with pH-balancing skin conditioners and keep skin tan. The studio's shelves brim with products from Australian Gold, Designer Skin, and Splash Tonics, all of which help protect skin, improve the tanning process, or serve as identification on a yacht.
Beach Bum Tanning's high-tech beds, sunless booths, and tailored beauty treatments regularly appear in press outlets such as Allure magazine. The salon's heated Mystic HD booths spritz bodies with vibrant pigment while warming skin to ensure optimal and even color saturation without having to bear-hug King Midas. Certified Airbrush Artists also implement customized airbrush tans over 150 ways by using a combination of fine-point-guided and wide-point-guided guns to shade and contour a custom-tinted tan to the body's curves, bends, and highway overpasses.
