Sun Tan City's specially designed devices bathe bodies in an even, bronze glow. The tanning beds ($9-$34) apply a delicate balance of UVA and UVB rays to create the fun-in-the-sun look, with varying session durations depending on the bed's level of intensity -- fast, faster, fastest, or instant. The VersaSpa Sunless Tanning System ($34) can provide a natural, even-tonal transformation without the use of UV rays. Standing upright in the VersaSpa booth, your body will be gently misted with either a clear or bronze solution, which will then be combined with an anti-aging moisturizing skin treatment. Each booth is scientifically designed to provide a breathe-easy treatment and features an exhaust system to send the lingering mist out while sealing in skin's new shade. Finally, after a few minutes in the comfort air-dry system, your body will be dry to the touch.
With experience working for two nationally recognized tanning salons, Chelsea Bradley knows that there are multiple ways to achieve a sun-kissed glow. At Glow ToGo, the salon she opened in 2012, she helps customers achieve a beachy tan and a more svelte appearance without exposure to UV rays. Tanning technicians—all of whom hold certifications from Norvell University—travel to meet clients for onsite appointments, during which they'll mist skin with regular and organic tanning solution. They also sell Norvell products that promote even color and hydration.
Sun Tan City’s trained tanning consultants help clients get bronzed via UV-free tanning booths and ergonomic tanning beds. Guests can schedule a single visit to touch up an existing tan, purchase a multivisit package to get a discounted rate, or become a member to take advantage of the salon’s 100% guarantee.
In Riviera Tanning Spa's private, air-conditioned rooms, clients can stretch out in tanning beds as they absorb UV rays from high-pressure filtered lights that render a more effective and even bronzing. While in one of three high-pressure tanning beds, clients can entertain themselves with radio-equipped CD players and relax on European-style soft mattress beds—which are available in both stand-up and lie-down varieties. The tanning beds rapidly tan skin any range of shades from a light dust of color to a deep, island-vacation brown. To achieve a fresh from the beach hue without the UV exposure, clients can opt to let Riviera Tanning Spa's experienced airbrush technicians gilt them from head to toe in just six minutes, which is faster than King Midas could after shotgunning 12 cups of Gold Coast coffee.
Spray Tans Done Right's tan-artist Kim and a team of chemists forged the Sudden Tan formula from scratch, using natural ingredients to cast the perfect golden glow. After custom-tailoring the spray solution to suit each client's skin tone, Kim skillfully applies a Sudden Tan onto the epidermis, highlighting individuals' anatomical assets and cloaking imperfections. The streak-free formula transforms skin tone so quickly that clients can shower off the excess solution two hours after their misting and be ready to party, attend events, and reshingle roofs in radiant, beach-bod style just three hours after their appointments.
In 2011, Allure named Glow Organic Airbrush Tanning Boutique's tanning solution the top airbrush tan in the United States. Perhaps this was because the solution is chemical-free, based in brown sugar and derived from apples. It could also be because tanners emerge with a golden brown glow, free of the orange cast that comes with subpar spray tanning or swimming in a tub full of orange soda. Each session is fully customizable, from the shade and the scent to the area of the body, whether it's from head to toe or just the face and neck.
