15,000 isn’t just the number of watts it takes to power a hedgehog’s blow-dryer—it’s also the number of salons in which Kahuna Bay Tan’s spray-tanning products are available. The Toledo-based company—which has trained pro technicians across the world—now has a flagship retail location: Kahuna Bay Spray Tan, LLC. At this brick-and-mortar salon, trained professionals airbrush on the ideal shade of tan using the company’s proprietary line of products, which have earned a stellar reputation by being used by ESPN correspondents and Miss America Pageant participants. These darkening solutions are made with all-natural ingredients and absolutely no melted bronze statues. More than just the simple application of a tanning solution, sessions can also include add-ons such as a pH-balancing moisturizing spray.
At locally owned and operated Tanlines, a spray tan is more than just a spray tan. Applied by certified spray technicians, Tanlines' fast-drying Norvell solution not only bronzes any skin type, but also coats epidermises with a restorative formula that reduces fine lines and wrinkles. Tanlines also offers traditional UV-bed tans. Besides helping patrons achieve a natural, sun-kissed look, Tanlines' Smart Tan–certified staff keep each facility, including their newly opened location in Franklin Park, stocked with skin-enriching products by Australian Gold, Designer Skin, and Swedish Beauty.
Sun Goddess Tanning Salon's certified tanning experts are happy to help customers get some color, either on six levels of UV-tanning beds or in Mystic spray-tanning booths. Some locations even offer custom airbrush spray tans and teeth-whitening services.
Tan Pro USA has been compensating for the less-than-ideal latitudinal coordinates of Ohio since 1998. It was then that they opened their first tanning outpost furnished with 30 UV beds, and they have since expanded operations to 43 stores throughout the state. They stock each location with ample tanning units, rendering appointments an archaic formality equivalent to gifting a sheep to your defense lawyer. After customers stroll in, they can slide into an Ergoline 1100, which boasts four ultra-performance facial tanners and two high-pressure shoulder tanners. Staffers advise which lotions enhance traditional tanning results along with explaining the benefits of the UV-free VersaSpa spray-tan booths. Harnessing infrared heat, VersaSpa booths impart a glow to entire physiques or targeted trouble areas, such as the inside of the armpits.
