Sunkissed Tanning Salon’s mission to help customers brandish beachy glows relies on both UV and UV-free tanning options and products from brands such as JWoww, Pauly D, and Snooki, which can nourish skin and minimize fading. Four types of UV beds and booths darken skin with rays emitted by high-intensity bulbs that bestow bronze tones without extended sunbathing or hopping Apollo’s chariot. Inside the Playboy-airbrush room, staff members coat skin with hand-sprayed serums that mimic a traditional tanned look without UV exposure.
When you think of a traditional tanning salon, you might imagine rows of tanning beds ready to deliver bronzed skin in 15-minute doses. Premier Tanning Salon is no different?it boasts eight Ergoline beds with four levels, in fact. But what sets Premier apart is that it also specializes in sunless tanning. The salon's Norvell Auto Revolution machine delivers an automated airbrush tan in just three to five minutes, covering skin in a choice of three levels of color. The sun-kissed color lasts up to a week, and it won't rub off on clothes or fluffy white cats in search of petting.
If Suntana’s staff of tanning specialists seems particularly knowledgeable about their trade, it may be because many of them are dedicated tanners as well. They draw on a combination of firsthand experience and industry know-how to help their clients achieve rich, golden skin tones courtesy of customized spray tans and three levels of UV tanning beds. Their expert guidance—along with moisturizing lotions from brands such as Designer Skin and Australian Gold—helps protect against the risks associated with overexposure or lowering oneself into a deep fryer.
Within the cream and burgundy oasis that is Euphoria Body Salon, a team of beautifiers with more than 50 years of combined experience get to work primping, pampering, and painting. Nail technicians administer mani-pedis decadent enough to warrant names like "whipped strawberry," handing each client a glass of bubbly before massaging hands and slicking them with polish. Dermaplane facials resurface tired fa?ades, and hairstylists cut and color the coifs of women, men, and children.
From standup beds to VersaSpa spray tans, bronze-seekers at Tantastics have plenty of tanning options. Along with 12-minute sessions in standup beds, clients can also opt for sessions in lie-down beds, and they can choose from a variety of tanning lotions for deeper color and hydrated skin. Tantastics also offers teeth whitening and professional airbrush tans.
At more than 140 locations across the country, the staff at Hollywood Tans maintains an average of 15 booths so its customers need not wait or make appointments for their tanning sessions. Each HT-manufactured, proprietary booth is set up vertically for a more sanitary experience, during which high-performance bulbs bronze bodies in less time than standard models. In addition to UV tanning, Mystic Tan vestibules send out mists of bronzers and moisturizers in one of four settings.
