A plush sectional couch, flat-screen TV, and fish tank give Soleil Tanning Salon’s reception area the comforting touches of a family room. The same welcoming attention is offered by the attentive staff members, who give each client a piggyback ride to their private treatment room and offer helpful instructions on using the tanning beds and standup booth. A slate of tanning products, including Australian Gold and Swedish Beauty, are available for clients’ bronzing experiences.
In 1963, Dick Ruffolo opened Ruffolo's Hair Studio & Tanning Salon with the help of his brother Gabe, who he hired as an employee. Within the Redken Elite Salon, the current staff of beauty pros snip hair, add color, and create texture as they shape locks and arm-wrestle ponytails into submission. Turning their attention to the rest of the body, aestheticians can administer spa services that range from facials to mani-pedis to makeup application.
Tropical Tan Kenosha's spray tan and UV booths imbue bodies with a sun-kissed glow year-round. Patrons step inside the Mystic spray-tanning booth for a head-to-toe, nontoxic spritzing that lasts 10–15 minutes, creating a gilded frame as flawless as a narcissistic diamond. Alternately, patrons can slip inside a Level 5 UV bed to maintain a golden hue without needing to sunbathe in a snowdrift during cold winter months.
Spanning more than 150 locations and six states, L.A. Tan's beautifying services polish pallid epidermises into shining, bronzed statues and brighten smiles with whitening treatments. A Level 1, 2, or 3 booth tan glows warmly with UVB rays, stimulating the body's production of vitamin D and burnishing epidermises to a brilliant sheen. UV-free spray tans, such as Mystic Tan or Versa Spa sessions, quickly glaze outer skin shells into glistening hues without exposing hides to the sun's harmful rays or pitiful knock-knock jokes.
Against vivid, sky-blue walls that evoke memories of beachside relaxation, certified masters and ambassadors of Smart Tanning stand ready to bronze pale human skin with top-of-the-line equipment. The facility caters to customers' individual needs with warmed Mystic HD booths and the latest UV equipment, including Soltron's high-pressure Shark bed, complete with cozy mattress, or Ergoline's Sundash, a standup booth that allows patrons to tan while practicing marching-band routines.
Visits to Cabana Tan Spa often begin in conversation. The expertly trained staff here can answer virtually any tanning question, recommend lotions, and help clients figure out which of the five levels of tanning beds they need. Depending on factors such as skin tone and the desired glow, sessions might wind up in either stand-up or lie-down beds. The tanning experts also direct clients to the airbrush rooms, where technicians gild bodies with organic tanning solutions, using the airbrush machine to contour bodies and add subtle muscle definition.
The 3,400-square-foot facility encompasses rooms for laser teeth whitening and massage, too. For the latter, massage therapist Paula Ranchel uses modalities such as Swedish, deep-tissue, and sports massage to address issues such as arthritis, carpal tunnel, and really wanting a massage.
