Darque Tan's arsenal of beds, booths, and nourishing lotions infuses visiting bodies with sun-kissed color. Along with at least 20 tanning beds, each location brims with tan-savvy staff members—each certified through the International Smart Tan Network—who can work with you to customize a program based on your tanning goals, skin type, and relation to black-and-white movie starlets. A dedicated full-time cleaning staff regularly runs through a 50-point inspection process between sessions, helping to create a sanitary tanning experience and keep clients from warming up 6-foot-long paninis during appointments.
Everywhere you look inside DD Style, you'll find a stylist or an aesthetician doing what she's best at.

Clients also may request voluminous lash extensions or revamp the complexion with a private makeup consultation.

The spa also utilizes high-quality products from brands such as SkinCeuticals, Eminence, and Colorescience Pro, blending the latest skin science with all-natural ingredients to keep skin soft, complexions clear, and signs of aging at bay.
