The house of bronzing features a variety of epidermal-evolving methods, including a bevy of bronzing beds, hand-held hue hoses, and motorized melanin sprays. A cheerful employee will help to select the mode of tonal transformation that best suits your needs and lifestyle. Opt for 20 sessions in the bronzing bed ($100) to ease gradually into a summer glow, or choose the UV-free Mystic Tan ($100 for six sessions) for a machine-powered splash of instant color. With a mobile airbrush tent, clients can even summon the experienced airbrushing artists to a home or secret tree house for a personalized on-the-spot treatment ($40 per session). You can also use the value of your Groupon toward monthly tanning packages.
Sunsational Tan caters to both camps of bronze-seekers with spray tanning and tanning beds. A Matrix L33 tanning bed uses a high-pressure tanning system, which incorporates a non-standard ratio of UV/A to EV/B to dole out a darker, longer-lasting fruit for your sedentary efforts. Sunsational Tan recommends spacing Matrix sessions about a week apart for best results. Those who shun the sun can opt for five MagicTan spray tans, which take about 60 seconds to shed dull layers and reveal a smooth, summery glow. See the Sunsational website for hours and bonus tan-bits.
The technicians at No Sand Tan have stayed one step ahead of the sun since 1987 through continuing education and gear upgrades that expedite the bronzing process. At the studio or on location, airbrush artists oblige requests to conceal stretch marks or replicate the color of a favorite burlap sack with an organic, nourishing bronzer from Norvell. Automated booths empower clients to customize their own sun-free spray sessions. The studio's six UV modules operate under an innovative design that combines tanning with teeth whitening. Four traditional UV beds radiate at high- and low-pressure intensities to cultivate a rich hue regardless of skin type, and two extra-efficient booths deliver medium-pressure sessions fewer than 10 minutes long.
Housing standup booths and three levels of tanning beds, The Tanning Company helps patrons sport sun-kissed exteriors regardless of the season. Whether vertical or horizontal, the equipment bronzes skin with features including miniature suns and dedicated bulbs for the side, shoulder, and face while keeping bods cool with adjustable fans.
Alternatively, staffers airbrush clients to create quick, UV-free glows. These custom spray tans evenly coat skin in an organic solution that, with proper maintenance, can render results that last for up to seven days. They also administer a signature "tanning cocktail," which combines spray tans with standup tanning-bed sessions.
