Inside Executive Tans' welcoming salon, a quartet of UV-tanning beds and an experienced airbrush-tanning artist await to burnish skin in a sultry summer glow. The selection of UV bed styles includes one standup booth and the Classic Legs bed, which only tans the gams to match more naturally tan upper bodies or to even out sock and ankle-watch tan lines. Coating bods in a UV-free tan, the trained staff wields an airbrush wand to spray skin in a finely textured pigmented mist, leaving skin with a streak-free glow lasting for five to seven days. Patrons can don one of the salon's paper bikinis or bring their own swimsuit, resting assured that the nonstaining spray easily washes out of clothing. The salon's shelves are stocked in a variety of tanning lotions, which hydrate skin while prolonging tans for weeks of beachside strolls or parading around Antarctica to make the citizens jealous.
Since opening in 1998, Tans To Go continues to bronze its guests with a selection of equipment that includes six tanning beds and custom airbrush tanning. UV-based tanning comes in both bed and booth form, embedded with radiant bulbs of up to 400 watts that target the body and face. Resident airbrush artists imbue hides with a tanning mist that moisturizes the skin as it does its best impersonation of the sun. Before customers choose a bronzing method, Tans To Go's friendly, helpful staff can help make the decision easier with advice and answers to tanning questions.
Darque Tan's arsenal of beds, booths, and nourishing lotions infuses visiting bodies with sun-kissed color. Along with at least 20 tanning beds, each location brims with tan-savvy staff members—each certified through the International Smart Tan Network—who can work with you to customize a program based on your tanning goals, skin type, and relation to black-and-white movie starlets. A dedicated full-time cleaning staff regularly runs through a 50-point inspection process between sessions, helping to create a sanitary tanning experience and keep clients from warming up 6-foot-long paninis during appointments.
The sun shines year-round at Tropical Tans, where a staff strives to give clients natural-looking color. After learning a guest’s envisioned results, the staff pairs them with a tanning bed in one of three levels or prescribes airbrush spray tanning, a UV-free formula that coin collectors often use to make their pennies more appealing and fresh-looking to buyers.

Guiltless Glow owner and proprietor Laurie Middleton was once a self-proclaimed “sun-worshipper," who relied on tanning beds for her bronzed glow. She soon learned of the benefits of airbrush tanning—the customizable shades, the skin-toning and evening properties, and lack of harmful UV rays—and has since dedicated herself to sharing that knowledge. Inside her studio, she's further expanded her passion for beautification, performing skincare, nail, and waxing services, offering Norvell automatic booth tans, and adding glow to grins with DaVinci organic teeth-whitening services.
