With many locations throughout Washington, Tan Republic outfits their salons with sleek, modern designs and earth-toned walls, filling private tanning rooms with a suite of melanin-conjuring machines. Guests can choose from Mystic Tan and VersaSpa spray-tanning booths, high-pressure tanning beds, or jars full of fireflies that can be held against the skin for a natural glow. The salons also offer six varieties of lotion, each formulated for specific bronzing needs.
Skin Waxing & Sunless Tanning Studio prettifies dermal layers in airbrush-tanning sessions and skin-smoothing waxing services. In 15 minutes, a tanning technician mists the body with a UV-free spray that patrons can customize in order to achieve their preferred sun-kissed hue. The service imbues clients with a bronzed radiance that can last up to 10 days and avoids the complications of such traditional tanning techniques as standing beneath a flashlight or bathing in butterscotch pudding. A spa professional strips away follicular contraband from arches during an eyebrow wax, which takes only five minutes to complete.
Sunsational Tanning enlivens wan complexions with a state-of-the-art array of UV and spray-tanning equipment. Step inside a private Mystic Tan at the Elkton, Middletown, and North East locations or an Autobronzer booth in Perryville, where an automated tanning system spritzes skin with precise, even coats of temporary color. During sessions, DHA and other bronzing agents infiltrate skin barriers, reading pores' private diaries to flawlessly impersonate their natural hues. More than 20 conventional tanning beds reign over each Sunsational location, emanating gentle to powerful levels of light rays to suit every complexion and skin sensitivity. Unlike doctors and demanding wall calendars, Sunsational Tanning does not require you to make appointments.
The stylists at More Pzazz boast an eclectic array of specialties—Noella Fisher, for example, focuses on dimensional color, whereas Bailey Barret expertly braids hair into interlocks, half backs, and corn rows. Those are just two of the many pros on the salon's team, and they all wield products from brands such as Redken and Pureology as they create custom hairdos. They share the space with aestheticians, who rejuvenate complexions with anti-aging facials, and manicurists, who brighten nails with a rainbow of colors.
Inside Salon de Soleil, Jaraka Williams taps into a deep well of hairstyling creativity and an ample stock of Pravana coloring products. The licensed stylist sculpts manes into face-framing hairdos that match each client’s personal style and brings hair to full volume deep-conditioning treatments, which render strands soft, shiny, and healthy. After applications of color or highlights, clients walk out with elegantly coifed, emblazoned hairdos that fully renew their appearance.
At Crave Sun & Spa, you can tan by the minute or by the month—different membership packages give guests free reign over the beds, which are named after tropical locales. After lounging inside beds such as the Jamaica, Rio, or Tahiti, clients can receive a relaxing massage or treat their skin to a clarifying facial treatment. The staff also offers nail care and waxing services as well as laser teeth whitening.
