It only takes seven minutes for Rockstar Tans’ tanning booths to successfully bronze clients. The super fast booths share salon space with Infinity Sun and Mystic Tan booths, both of which offer UV-free tans that can last up to 14 days. Flat-screen televisions hang on canary-hued walls inside the salon’s waiting room. Nearby, a complimentary Beauty Bar treats guests to water to keep them hydrated, deodorant to keep them fresh, and coffee to keep them energized enough to accept all the compliments their newly bronzed skin will get.
At Sun Spa Salon, hairstylist Nicole Brungardt sculpts tresses into face-flattering shapes. Nicole is part of a team of seasoned stylists who primp tresses with haircuts and highlights, bronze skin with tanning booths, and keep their boutique stocked with handbags, flip-flops, jewelry, and animatronic doubles of their customers.
The OC Tan brings the sparkling soulshine lingering within each customer to the surface through a variety of tanning services. The Elixir tanning bed ($20 per session) envelops tanners in 51 body bulbs—one for each U.S. state—for 12 minutes of air-conditioned tanning. Disappear into the Mystic Tan spray booth ($35) as a pale newspaper reporter and emerge 60 seconds later as Supertan, the poorly named hero with a healthy glow. For those who love the taste of tanning bulbs but hate the sound of laying down, the Solarforce 652V ($20) offers a 10-minute tan in a stand-up unit that can accommodate clients up to seven feet tall. The ultimate in tan architecture at The OC Tan, however, is the King 420 bed ($40), which combines aromatherapy, aquatherapy, and a non-claustrophobic design into 12 minutes of high-pressure tanning. A five-minute airbrush tan is also available ($55), with custom application and results lasting up to a week.
At Exotic Tan, maintaining a glowing complexion year-round is easy. That's because the salon offers a three-pronged approach to tanning, including UV beds, automated Mystic tanning booths, and custom airbrushing. Inside private treatment rooms, clients can step into UV beds that build up tans faster than a vacation in front of the world's largest magnifying glass. For those looking for immediate, UV-free results, Mystic tanning booths bronze skin in just 60 seconds and staffers hand-apply tanning solution during custom airbrush sessions to ensure maximum coverage.
Island Tan OC believes everyone looks better with a tan, and it helps clients achieve that sun-kissed glow with traditional horizontal tanning beds, standup booths, and spray tanning. Its gold-level standup booth keeps bodies cool with body fans, which circulate air more efficiently than staffers frantically waving their arms. Bronze-level reclining beds come with client-controlled facial tanners, and Mystic Tan spray booths and custom airbrush bronzing offer UV-free options. After a gilding session, patrons can further adorn their limbs with the shop's supply of bikinis, jewelry, and makeup.
