Every salon claims that their tanning formula is one-of-a-kind. But at Unique Tan, it's actually true—owner Sherrie Lee Meredith developed it herself. Her signature spray-tanning blend, Unique Excellence, tints skin with a paraben-free solution of organic aloe vera, berry essences, and a firming serum to stave off the signs of aging. The formula also contains erythrulose, which can produce a longer-lasting bronze glow, and, because it's alcohol-free, helps keep skin moisturized and streak-free. The salon's Smart Tan–certified staff uses this in both automated booths and custom airbrushing sessions, which harness the steady hand of a tanning artist to ensure tans completely cover skin and finally even the score with haughty bronze statues.
The salon also offers traditional UV-tanning beds, which contain comfort-adding amenities such as air conditioning, aromatherapy, adjustable facial bulbs, and easy-to-follow voice instructions. Clients can enhance their tans with the salon's line of tan-accelerating products, which extend the life of each tan by keeping skin moisturized and healthy.
Owner and founder Jackie Dark, a longtime eyelash-extension customer, wanted to introduce others to the beauty service that shortened her daily routine. She and her team of certified aestheticians and cosmetologists at Lovely Lash Salon & Cosmetic Center dedicate the practice solely to instant beauty fixes. Some of the services they offer include eyelash extensions—with synthetic or mink lashes in varying sizes, lengths, and styles, they add volume to guests' eyes, making them look alert and fresh during all hours without using mascara. They also perm and tint lashes, as well as spray tanning, teeth whitening, and help improve figures with VelaShape body shaping.
True to the company name, Always Bronze helps clients maintain a midsummer tan year-round. But rather than harnessing the sun's rays or another UV facsimile, Always Bronze relies on airbrush solutions to imbue the fresh-from-the-beach blush. Applied by the practiced hands of one of their spray-tan technicians either at the salon or the customer's home, their misting solution—which can be customized to fit patrons across the complexion spectrum—swaddles skin in a streak-free tan that lasts up to 10 days.
At Sun Kiss'd Tan & Boutique, bronze-seekers dress themselves in a duskier skin-coat or shop for shiny baubles or a flowing silk top. The beauty emporium offers spray tanning and traditional high-pressure tanning beds, helping add rich color to skin after a long winter indoors. The shop carries a collection of iridescent and unique jewelry as well as denim button-ups, faux leather pleated dresses, and leather clutches in candy apple red.
Bronze by Brittany swaddles bodies in a beach-ready tan with airbrush solutions from SunFX. The bronzers are meticulously selected to ensure client's comfort and safety, and contain no alcohol, perfume, preservatives, parabens, oil, or other chemicals. In addition to the tanning solutions, Bronze by Brittany nourishes skin with aloe-enriched moisturizers, tanning extenders, and other salves.
