The Perfect Tan's staffers analyze skin tone before directing clients to standup UV-tanning units or customizing an airbrush tan with three colors of Norvell bronzer. A fleet of state-of-the-art standup UV tanning units, set at two levels of intensity, imbues limbs with a sunny glow. 54-level beds impart a solid base tan in four or five 10-minute sessions, and 42-level units gradually bronze over the course of five or six sessions or one sleepover party. Though not included in this Groupon, The Perfect Tan's cabinet full of deluxe tanning products can also augment bronzing sessions.
You might think that standing up while you tan would cause an unnaturally darkened scalp, but this never happens at Hollywood Tans. That's because their arsenal of signature stand-up tanning booths create an always even, natural-looking glow in as little as seven minutes. With more than 140 locations nationwide, the chain’s salons—each a veritable bronze mine for pale bodies—can also bronze physiques Mystic Tan’s Instant Tan, a sunless formula that does not contain UV-rays or infectious California boy-band harmonies. Voted "Favorite Tanning Salon in North Jersey" by an independent readers' poll in Suburban Trends magazine, Hollywood Tans of Riverdale can also help customers choose the Instant Tan formula best suited to them, matching the bronzing serums to the each person's skin tone, type, and ideal look.
Patrons looking for a more intimate tanning experience can bypass crowded beaches or nosy neighbors and tan in one of Boardwalk Sunsations Tanning’s nine private rooms. Five UV-tanning booth and bed models gently darken pelts in 10- to 20-minute sessions. Alternatively, a certified master airbrush-tanning technician can cover skin with a Norvell Sunless Solutions formula for UV-free color. Newly tanned clients can complement their glowing skin with shimmery hair tinsel or vivid feather extensions.
At Sunkissed Airbrush Tanning, a five-minute onsite or mobile session coats bodies evenly with an organic tanning solution. Throughout the day, the tan will grow darker, leaving skin lightly bronzed as if drenched in warm sunbeams.
Spa treatments are sometimes considered luxuries, but Necessities Day Spa & Salon treats them as essential services that provide much-needed relaxation. Nestled in The Shoppes at Hamilton, the spa hosts a team of experts in haircare, aesthetics, massage, and waxing. For people who return to enjoy the spa’s services over multiple trips, Necessities provides membership packages that include access to a VIP lounge, use of robes and slippers, and the ability to hear a host of trumpets playing whenever they walk into a room.
Stylists and aestheticians at The Face & Body Spa cultivate coiffures and nourish skin using products with an organic, vegan focus. That means that body scrubs exfoliate with organic sugarcane, nails glimmer with SpaRitual vegan polish, and hair color is ammonia-free, an eco-friendly approach that makes pampering sessions feel simultaneously as virtuous and enjoyable as volunteering at Willy Wonka's soup kitchen.
The spa's Eastern influence shows up in both the services—body workers use acupuncture and Reiki energy therapy—and the decor. Stone buddha heads broadcast calm throughout lounge areas, and live bamboo and potted trees add a minimalistic reminder of the staff's natural inspirations.
