Brothers Richard and Philip Samuel operate Maximum Tan, pitching in daily to maintain five levels of tanning equipment at seven salons. A computer system monitors the freshness of lamps in every lie-down and standup UV bed, tracking each bulb's hours so that it can be changed before the standard recommended time. The employees, who are trained in skincare, tanning hygiene, and equipment operation, can bronze bodies with custom airbrush tans or escort guests to self-operated VersaSpa booths. Each store is kept cool so that customers can stay comfortable after tanning sessions or long days babysitting electric blankets.
Founded in 1974 in Memphis, Tennessee, by the eponymous Sam Ross, Fantastic Sams is a family-friendly salon geared toward quality. Today, the brand spans more than 1,200 locations, employing a legion of experienced stylists as they wage wars on bedhead and uneven bangs. Wielding shampoos and conditioners crafted with provitamins and soy proteins, the staff offers services such as haircuts, color treatments, and straightening treatments.
The expansive menu of beauty services at Custom Beaute Permanent Makeup, Dermal Solutions and Wellness Clinic addresses aesthetic concerns from head to toe. Electrolysis wipes out stubborn hair across faces, stomachs, and all 11 toes. Facials help to refurbish skin, while airbrush tans and eyelash extensions add oomph to personal appearances. The staff also tackles issues below the surface of the skin–from headaches to fibromyalgia to plantar fasciitis–using therapeutic massage.
Marbled walls and gentle lighting cocoon Club Cabo Tanning's airbrush room, where tan technicians patiently guide a gentle mist of all-natural bronzing agents across the body. Pre-tan consultations yield custom shades that eschew parabens in favor of natural and organic ingredients selected for their moisturizing, firming, and wrinkle-reducing properties, including rose hips, aloe, and Oregon grape. A chic yet homey atmosphere arises from delicate chandeliers and floral motifs that trail along the walls down the corridor to Club Cabo's collection of standup UV booths, traditional beds, and tanning bunk beds for extra bonding with friends.
Total Tan offers all-season solutions for transforming dull dermises into blissfully sun-kissed skin suits. For traditional bed and booth tanning, choose from a radiant array of artificial, cleanly sun pods to build your glow from palest amber to Midas-pawed gold. Or heat-shy coloration seekers may prefer UV-free Mystic spray tanning, which blankets the body in a fine mist to achieve effortless bronzing.
Not only do Good to Glow’s tanning artists mist clients in a natural-looking golden hue, they do it with an all-natural, organic solution. It’s also gluten- and paraben-free, while their signature, skin-nourishing Glam Tans can also help fight signs of aging or create slimmer appearances. Besides coating figures in-studio, the team hosts on-site spray tanning parties, as well, replete with champagne and rock candy, ideal for bridal showers and private parties.
