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.
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.
Drawing on 10 years of experience, owner and expert airbrusher Kathryn Swope lends bodies a rich tan without UV lights using all-natural tanning solutions at her new store location in Perrysburg. During a personalized consultation before each session, Kathryn chats with visitors to determine the most suitable hue for each skin type. She'll then swathe epidermises in a nourishing pretanning elixir that hydrates skin for optimal color and an even, all-over tone devoid of streaks, splotches, or unintentional pentagrams. Wielding her airbrushing equipment, Swope bathes bodies in a mist of aloe-based solution that reacts naturally with skin to create a convincing glow.
Stylist and owner April King and her team of 13 makeover mavens bedazzle patrons with a bevy of esthetician services at United Hairlines & Tan Lines. Visages nicked while bobbing for sea urchins get smoothed and rejuvenated during a one-hour facial ($60), and a therapist de-knots bodies in the 45-minute massage ($45). An exfoliating body scrub ($45) refreshes weary pores while an added paraffin treatment ($10) soothes skin to a smooth sheen without wasting precious candle resources.
