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.
At Gtans, visitors have a wide variety of options when it comes to achieving a deep, even tan. A lineup of UV tanning beds ranges in tanning levels, so visitors can achieve color in as little as eight minutes, and both standup and standard beds are available. For those opting to go UV-free, choose from either Mystic HD or custom airbrush tans. The automated Mystic HD booth offers varies hues as well as tan extenders, so bodies stay bronzed through all of Texas's seasons—summer and bluebonnet season.
The certified tanning techs at iBeach Tan are trained to carry out a range of UV and sunless bronzing treatments to keep your skin looking bronzed 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. The studio features four levels of UV beds housed in brightly colored private rooms. During spray-tan sessions, custom combinations of Norvell bronzing agents and hydration formulas leave skin with a healthy glow. The formula also helps to disguise fine lines caused by sun exposure and hugs from corduroy salesmen. The shop also stocks moisturizers and tanning lotions to help deepen and extend the life of tans, and you can get frequent access to its tanning facilities in a variety of membership programs.
The tanning professional at Mobile Airbrush Tan ATX takes her talents on the road as she travels to clients’ homes to keep them looking sun-kissed. Although clients may choose to get their airbrush tan in the shower, the technician comes prepared with a retractable tent specifically for spray tanning and enough shower caps to protect the hair of one person or an entire sorority house. She uses a special tanning solution that is 100% gluten-free, organic, not tested on animals, and safe enough for pregnant women and Hummel figurines.
Since Tan 2000 has so many tanning options, the center’s certified staff helps clients to decide which beds and lotions they should use to achieve their envisioned glow. The staff may guide them to a Sun Ergoline bed or pull Supre Tan or California Tan serums to boost results. All of the studio’s beds boast upward of 43 lamps and may include such extras as canopy-stacked bulbs, which can intensify facial tanning or convince five-o’clock shadows that it’s still two in the afternoon. Tan 2000 also houses an automatic Mystic Tan spray-tanning booth, which spritzes clients with an aloe-infused bronzing solution.
The stainless-steel, acrylic-free surfaces of the standup tanning booths at Kool Tan provide bronzing with a clean way to get an even UV tan, which takes no longer than 11 minutes per session. For a 60-second spray tan, an automated, hands-free booth spritzes the body in a tanning formula before blow-drying the skin to prevent streaks and plaid patterns, bestowing the physique with a natural-looking, golden-brown hue. To supplement tans with subdermal relaxation, the far-infrared dry sauna exfoliates while relaxing and detoxifying the body during 20-minutes stints. A hydrotherapy water-jet massage soothes sore sinews, relieves muscular tension, and stimulates circulation throughout the customizable 20-minute session, during which the client lies, fully clothed, in a dry capsule or a hollow jelly bean.
