Maui Tanning owner Hannah Balonick harnesses her passionate advocacy of the benefits of tanning to gild otherwise pale exteriors with top-notch equipment. The salon's tanning beds glow at varying strengths, safely darkening epidermises of every type. Meanwhile, airbrush artists tap their experience tanning celebrity bodies for MTV and Bravo to mist streakless Infinity Sun spray on clients' skin and paling Oscar statues. In addition to bronzing bodies, tan techs beautify physiques with treatments such as red-light therapy and teeth whitening.
Amid the hot pink swirls that line the walls inside The Lash Factory, clients relax on white treatment beds as lash technicians apply eyelashes to existing fringe for an added pop. The staff continues the pampering with sun-kissed spray tans, make-up applications, and an ultrasonic energy treatment aimed at blasting fat cells to diminish cellulite. A nook near the entrance of The Lash Factory is devoted to trendy tops and dresses available to purchase or lease by the decade.
Sunset Tan helps clients maintain a year-round glow by giving them access to a range of UV beds by UWE as well as sunless spray options by Infinity Sun and Mystic Tan. The salon keeps its doors open late, allowing clients to steep in the UV rays at hours that suit their work schedule or sneak in well after the sun has gone to bed.
Insatiable Sun's main strength may be its advanced european tanning technology. Each of its locations—including the two newly acquired Sunset Tan spots in West Hollywood and Studio City—houses 14 superior sunning capsules from such brands as Sun Ergoline and Sun Storm. As with a carpenter's box of tools or a witch's sack of bad smells, each bed has a purpose. With its high concentration of UVB rays, the low-pressure Cobra bed is good for developing a solid base tan, whereas the Sun Ergoline Avantgarde's pros include a large tanning surface and a short tanning time (8–10 minutes).
Three of the salon's four locations also offer custom-airbrush-tanning sessions. These 10-minute treatments coat the skin in a solution infused with aloe vera and vitamin E that leaves clients with healthy, glowing tans for up to one week.
High-pressure vertical and horizontal tanning beds fill the private bronzing rooms at Tanning Plus, but they’re not the only technology on display—the salon has continually evolved with the beauty industry in its three decades of existence. Mystic Tan booths spritz the body with a patented solution from head to toe, creating an even glow without exposure to UV rays. Going beyond the body’s bronzed surface, infrared body wraps can help shed inches before a tropical vacation or after an international hot-dog-eating contest.
This friendly tanning studio offers a variety of ways to bronze drab dermises with equipment that circumvents the interference from clouds, large kites, or hovering cities. A month of unlimited tanning allows unlimited use of the facility's stand-up booths as well as medium-pressure Orbit beds, which minimize the amount of UVA rays reaching your skin. Custom airbrush treatments are UV-free alternatives that grant patrons precisely pigmented pelts without unsightly streaks or unscently sweating.
