Although most people want a glowing tan, no one wants burnt, painful skin. That’s why the Smart Tan-certified professionals at Bronze Couture Tan & Spa guide clients through the tanning options available in their salon, ensuring clients select the tanning method and lotion that will best darken their individual skin type. The staff members desire to help clients reduce the negative effects of tanning, and thus educate them on how to enhance tanning sessions with accelerating lotions, chocolate syrup, or the salon’s higher-tiered UV beds. The Level 3–7 Ergoline beds build up tans over time, whereas the salon’s high-pressure Magic 636 bed condenses eight hours of sunshine into 12 minutes.
As an alternative to UV tanning, certified airbrush artists offer custom spray tans that last for 5–10 days. The salon also offers complementary services such as teeth whitening, tan-prolonging hydration treatments, and red light–therapy facials.
The sun simply cannot match the quality of work performed by Sunkissed Airbrush Tanning's technicians. Whereas the star bronzes everyone with the same generic rays of UV light, airbrush techs gild skin with pigments that account for personal factors including body type, skin tone, and preferences. To begin, Sunkissed’s airbrush artists meet with clients to create a custom sunless-tanning product. Each resulting formula contains all-natural, organic ingredients such as sugar cane or melted fudgesicles that darken skin without unpleasant odors, orange hues, or streaking. After preparing the bronzer, the technician takes about 15 minutes to shade the whole body, upper body, legs, face, or décolletage in a superfine mist.
The changing seasons can limit your ability to get a tan, but Sunkissed Airbrush Tanning removes all obstacles to look tan. Inside Warren Tricomi Salon, aestheticians imbue bodies with a midsummer blush with a quick-drying, sulfate- and paraben-free tanning solution. The service takes 30 minutes, and Sunkissed even packs up its sunless tanning wares for house visits and tanning parties.
A trip into one of Tiki Image?s tanning beds treats clients to sun-kissed skin. Six levels of beds include extras such as facial tanners or a sound system with a subwoofer. For those with a sunless preference, the salon offers both custom airbrush and spray-tan booths that coat bodies in a skin-darkening formula without pesky streaks or squiggly lines. Yet another booth at the salon emits red light, which works to diminish the appearance of wrinkles and blemishes. Along with tanning services, Tiki Image offers fit body wraps to burn calories, relieve stiff muscles, and detoxify the body.
