The friendly Smart Tan-certified staffers at My Tan Factory point patrons in the direction of UV beds that build tans in 10- to 15-minute sessions. My Tan Factory offers relaxing horizontal beds with amenities such as misters and air conditioning for comfort, and vertical booths for individuals who prefer to tan while practicing the yoga tree pose. The salon's resident airbrush expert has spray-tanned more than 1,000 people over the course of four years, and accelerates drying times with a standup drying booth.
Haircuts and highlights are only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to pampering clients at PeterAshley Hair Salon & Day Spa. Trained massage therapists work out tense muscles, and aestheticians extract dirt and loose change from pores during facials. A nail technician is also on hand to dispense mani-pedis.
Luminous Glow, Inc. owner Barbara Clark dismisses the sun’s harmful UV rays and orange tanning products in favor of using organic products from Lavish Tan. Developed by a Neutrogena chemist, Lavish Tan’s patent-pending solution is made from natural ingredients, including a brown-sugar base that’s derived from apples. The natural formula eschews the usual beet- or carrot-fermented extracts of other blends, thus avoiding the unpleasant aroma and tangerine undertones of other spray tans. Luminous Glow, Inc.’s bronzing artists custom-spray limbs with coppery mist during 20- to 30-minute sessions, leaving bodies as expertly shaded as a elm tree in a da Vinci painting.
At Tanning Revolution all shades??including light, medium, dark, and super dark??are made from an organic solution. Everyone entering the salon receives disposable garments, sticky feet, a tan-remover bottle, and a tan extender. Customers can also opt for a quick powder-dry finish or a smell-free tan.
