Salon Soleil’s futuristic beds envelope clients in a russet glow while maximizing comfort and safety. Entry-level bronze-lovers can unwind on the acrylic sheets of the low-pressure Solaris 442 as stereo speakers pipe in soothing audio and administer informal hearing tests. The medium-pressure Advantage 400 and high-pressure Matrix Glammy eradicate pallor with deeper, long-lasting tans, and the Super Cyclone stand-up bed employs hue-boosting rays in brisk, eight-minute sessions. For patrons who desire trophy-winning skin sans UV exposure, Salon Soleil’s red-bulb-rejuvenation therapy works to create clearer, tighter, and less wrinkled-looking exteriors without surgery, injections, lasers, or trick mirrors.
Island Tan OC believes everyone looks better with a tan, and it helps clients achieve that sun-kissed glow with traditional horizontal tanning beds, standup booths, and spray tanning. Its gold-level standup booth keeps bodies cool with body fans, which circulate air more efficiently than staffers frantically waving their arms. Bronze-level reclining beds come with client-controlled facial tanners, and Mystic Tan spray booths and custom airbrush bronzing offer UV-free options. After a gilding session, patrons can further adorn their limbs with the shop's supply of bikinis, jewelry, and makeup.
OC Tan 2 U customizes its all-natural spray solution according to each client's skin tone before artfully applying it via airbrush. The clean, comfortable synthetic-sun specialty shop employs its unique airbrush formula that adapts to skin, resulting in a natural, non-orange tan that disguises the body's blemishes and irregularities. The spray session takes about 15 minutes, and the tan lasts up to two weeks depending on skin quality, care, and exposure to sandblasters.
Clients recline as Wake Up Beautiful's licensed aestheticians refresh façades with invigorating facials. After a brief consultation to hash out skin type and aromatherapeutic preferences, aestheticians apply a double mask that delves into facial crevasses to smooth skin without calling in the mini zamboni. The facial forager extracts embedded dirt from clogged pores, and a massage lulls features into a trance. Throughout their stay, clients sip on complimentary glasses of sparkling fruit spritzer in the art deco beauty lounge draped in black fuzzy carpets, ebony lacquer, and bright red accents.
You might think that standing up while you tan would cause an unnaturally darkened scalp, but this never happens at Hollywood Tans. That's because their arsenal of signature stand-up tanning booths create an always even, natural-looking glow in as little as eight minutes. With more than 140 locations nationwide, the chain’s salons—each a veritable bronze mine for pale bodies—can also bronze physiques with Mystic Tan’s Instant Tan, a sunless formula that does not contain dangerous UV rays or infectious California boy-band harmonies. The tone-savvy staff can also help customers choose the instant-tan formula best suited to them, matching the bronzing serums to the each person's skin tone, type, and ideal look.
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.
