Since opening their first spa—Sassy SunTan & Oxygen Bar—Heather and Adam Larribas have added a second sunning sanctuary called Sassy Tan & Spa. In addition to providing tanning services, the original location features an aromatherapeutic oxygen bar, while its counterpart on Star Ranch Road offers massage therapy. Visitors to the oxygen bar inhale air that's 90–95% oxygen, as opposed to the 21% usually found in everyday air. Meanwhile, aromatherapy scents such as vanilla, piña colada, and orange bolster the energizing effects of the vapor as soothing eucalyptus scents attract curious koalas.
Both locations offer bronzing via UV beds as well as airbrush gear. In accordance with a mission statement prioritizing cleanliness and comfort, staffers stock each private treatment room with tissues, water, deodorant, and candy. Here, tanners bask in the glow of beds equipped with varying levels of intensity, or close their eyes as a cloud of bronzing mist settles on their skin during an airbrush tan.
For the past 31 years, Tan Your Hide's proprietors have witnessed every innovation in UV and sunless tanning, selecting the best and most current technologies to outfit nine locations. European Ergoline UV tanning beds darken skin tones at seven levels of intensity that mimic seven different tropical vacations. Tan Your Hide's representatives replace each bed's bulbs a minimum of four times per year, maintaining their capacity for perfecting pigmentation. Heated Mystic HD tanning booths spritz physiques with an even coat of healthy color. Customers can also purchase commercial-grade tanning beds for use at home. Tan Your Hide's interest in skin perfection doesn't end with coloration—its UV-free Beauty Angel red-light-therapy booth stimulates production of collagen, elastin, and internal spandex, improving the condition of skin all over the body. The device's floor vibrates to tighten connective tissues and thereby reduce the appearance of cellulite.
At Extreme Tan Inc, tanning professionals make it easy for bodies to acquire a coppery glow anytime of year, rain or shine. A fleet of 10 tanning apparatuses includes beds by Ergoline and ETS, as well as a standup booth that keeps tanners vertical and toes tapping to tunes courtesy of an iPod dock. UV rays are available in varying levels, allowing bodies to emerge with lightly sun-kissed color or a deep bronze patina that glows brighter than a shellacked ham. For those who prefer not to bake, a Mystic Tan booth helps limbs acquire a faux glow in complete privacy in about 15 minutes, and custom airbrush sessions see skilled technicians adjusting the bronzing formula to skin type and spraying it on by hand for a smooth, streak-less application.
Sunless Perfection is a specialized bronzery offering only UV-free services, shunning the sun's dermis-damaging rays without denying the greatness of summertime glow. During your aromatic airbrush tan, one of the sun spa's trained pigment masters will expertly mist your skin to impart customized, natural-looking radiance. This pseudo sun sprinkle will make your nostrils flutter with the decadent aromatics of chocolate, vanilla, pina colada, citrus, or green tea.
Airbrush Lush’s skilled technicians mix their tanning expertise with martini-bar-esque mixology, rendering bodies bronze to the beats of pumping pop-music tunes. Built to order from a trove of medical-grade sunless-tanning elixirs, fragrances, and tinted body shimmer, the staff mixes up each blend in an authentic cocktail shaker before pouring it into an HVLP airbrush gun to swath skin in a golden embrace. The Tan Tini menu boasts epidermal indulgence options ranging from Midas-touched Long Island green tea to chocolaty Godiva Gaga garnished with wisteria shimmer, each customized to fit clients' color-saturation preferences and desire to camouflage themselves in a village of gingerbread men. Each concoction boasts skin-boosting ingredients such as CoQ10, sprays on in just under five minutes, and dries upon contact. Following the treatment, patrons can abscond from the salon's sleek mocha and ebony quarters for up to seven days of brazen Bond girl high jinks.
Inside Bronze Bay Tanning, Smart-Tan-certified staffers guide guests to an octet of beds that burnish bodies with UV light in 12- to 20-minute bursts. Accelerators and lotions by brands such as California Tan and Australian Gold enhance tans with extended bronzing effects and improved alibis about beach vacations down under. For sunless tanning, a trained technician covers pelts with a laser-airbrush spray tan that lasts up to one week.
