Multiple levels of tanning beds gradually bronze skins inside private rooms at Tanners Cove. Tanning accelerators available at reception can hasten the arrival of sun-kissed hues, and Magic Tan spray-tan booths spritz on golden color without exposure to UV light or glares from jealous wall sconces.
Winner of Best Tanning Salon on the Central Coast, Sahara Sun Tanning certainly knows what it's doing when it comes to treating clients to bronzed skin. In its nearly 30 years as a business, the tanning salon has kept up with the changing trends of the tanning industry, offering standup beds, tanning with high-pressure bulbs, and high-quality Mystic spray tans. But that's not all it does. The beauty hot spot also fills its sunny space with boutique clothing in the form of flowy tops and cozy sweaters.

The Land Down Under is a continent set beneath a scorching sun—Australian Tan knows, just like Australians, how to harness the light to achieve glowing, bronzy skin. The salon’s faux sun comes from six different tanning booths. The most basic bed imparts a base tan in 20 minutes, while the Instant 770 imparts a rich, long-lasting hue in as few as 10. Meanwhile, the sunless spray-tanning booth houses an automatic system that sprays on UV-free color. Regardless of the chosen bed, the staff can complement sessions with bronzing lotions that enhance acquired tans or help an old trophy get through a midlife crisis with a refreshed façade. Each member of the staff goes through 35 hours of training prior to working in the salon, so they can easily tailor tanning plans to each customer.
Owner and licensed aesthetician Luciana Mueller trained in Brazil and uses natural waxes imported from Brazil to gently extricate unwelcome tendrils and smoothen sensitive areas for up to five weeks. Lip waxing ($15) encourages silken smooches, and eyebrow shaping ($15) enables newly beautified faces to express the gamut of human emotion—from happiness to unbridled happiness—in utmost style. Defuzz underams ($20) and lower arms ($35) or prep for the beach with a Brazilian bikini wax ($65). Waxing provides longer-lasting hairlessness than shaving, and when the hair does come back after a few weeks, it's meek, soft, and easily scared back into the follicle with banging pans or the threat of another round of wax.
