The Land Down Under is a continent set beneath a scorching sun—Australian Tan knows, just like Australians, how to harness the light to achieve glowing, bronzy skin. The salon’s faux sun comes from six different tanning booths. The most basic bed imparts a base tan in 20 minutes, while the Instant 770 imparts a rich, long-lasting hue in as few as 10. Meanwhile, the sunless spray-tanning booth houses an automatic system that sprays on UV-free color. Regardless of the chosen bed, the staff can complement sessions with bronzing lotions that enhance acquired tans or help an old trophy get through a midlife crisis with a refreshed façade. Each member of the staff goes through 35 hours of training prior to working in the salon, so they can easily tailor tanning plans to each customer.
Exotica Airbrush Tanning's certified airbrush technicians customize each spray tan according to each client’s skin type and desired color, then keep the tailor-made formulas on file for future tanning sessions. Airbrush artists dress bodies in natural-looking bronzes with an organic, Ecocert-certified tanning solution that creates even shades free from orange blotches, streaks, or images of Garfield. During the session, clients can wear their own undergarments, don disposable undergarments provided by the studio, or go topless or nude for line-free tans. The process takes approximately 15 minutes and bestows the skin with a custom color that can last up to 10 days or more than two weeks when combined with lotions and tan-extender products.
Since 2003, Four Seasons Tanning of Los Gatos’s experienced staff have been keeping clients outfitted in fashionably bronzed birthday suits throughout the year. With spray-tanning and airbrushing services, the artists cloak clients with instant, streak-free color that lasts for several days and fades gradually. They also offer tanning products along with advice on how to select lotions to accommodate specific skin types and achieve desired results. In order to keep clients from burning, the Four Seasons specialists help tanners choose one of three tanning-bed levels with varied bulb intensities, exposure times, and ability to simulate each of the galaxy’s most popular suns.
