Like any redhead, Jennifer Davis had intimate knowledge of the painful burns that would result when she tried to imbue her fair complexion with a sultry summer glow. Determined to help her fellow Texans achieve a sun-kissed hue without the damaging effects of tanning, Jennifer opened a mobile airbrush-tanning business that has since expanded to multiple salon hubs situated throughout the Dallas metro area.
Using a paraben-free, DHA solution, the salon?s certified airbrush technicians completely envelop frames in a shade tailored to skin tones, leaving a streak-free color that lets patrons avoid the attentions of lovelorn zebras. The tanning solution is applied and dry within 30 minutes, both illuminating bodily hues and covering skin imperfections such as blemishes, cellulite, and stretch marks during its two-week tenure on the skin. The salon also stocks a supply of Norvell products and airbrushing machines, allowing guests to maintain golden skin at home without replacing showerheads with arcade token machines.
The staff at Darque Tan learned the science of tanning through Smart Tan certification, which they rely on to design efficient, safe regimes for each client's skin type. Five levels of PCTan beds and booths can bronze skin with as few as 12 minutes of UV exposure while enveloping skin in cooling mist. Automated airbrush tanning in VersaSpa or Mystic Tan booths create even, natural-looking color that masks scars and stretch marks. Darque Tan's pursuit of convenience is further exemplified with business hours that span seven days a week, a minimum of 20 beds per location, and rec rooms where kids can read and watch TV. A crew of professional cleaners details each of the facilities according to a rigorous 50-point inspection and tips gleaned from reading Mr. Clean's LiveJournal.
Body Beautiful Studio’s menu of services not only focuses on keeping clients looking luminous and svelte, but also emphasizes the importance of good health and whole-body well-being. Rather than relying on the potentially harmful UV rays emitted by tanning beds, the studio’s airbrush tanning technicians instead engulf bodies in a mist of botanically based solution, creating an even, sun-kissed hue free of orange streaks, unlike carrots shot out of a T-shirt cannon. Body Beautiful’s full-body infrared treatments use far-infrared technology to relieve aches and contour silhouettes. As the gentle heat elevates metabolisms and helps release pent-up toxins, it can also improve skin tone by minimizing the appearance of cellulite.
The artists at Chi Ro Makeup Studio are in their element when their clients most need to look their best—at weddings, photo shoots, and television and film gigs. That much is clear, because they've earned the trust of actress Tamera Mowry, who has to look her best a lot. The key is breadth. The artists can handle both airbrush and traditional makeup, and their hair services include everything from updos to extensions. In addition, a tanning stylist uses Natural Glow products to cover legs or entire bodies with a bronzy glow so that clients don't have to brown themselves in a pan slicked with Crisco.
