Australian Sands Tanning Resort boasts six kinds of tanning beds, custom spray tans, and an on-site shop stocked with skincare products. The Resort's true selling point, though, lies with its staff. The tanning consultants own a stake in the independent business, and take pride in their work. They each earned a certification stating that they understand the effects of ultraviolet light, various skin types, and how to best maintain and clean the equipment. This means they can recommend the ideal bed to bring out a client's natural color. They deftly apply Tahitian Tan Custom Airbrush tans, giving the sunless pigment a naturally even look, and they also prescribe skincare products to enhance the color, duration, or lotion-y-ness of a tan.
Customers can stay bronzed and buff year-round at Different Seasuns. Thirty tanning beds in eight different types bestow skin with a golden hue in private rooms painted with a tropical flair. The salon’s circuit-training center includes conditioning machines, weighted hula hoops, exercise balls, and free weights that work to sculpt freshly tanned muscles.
It’s all about color at Prestige Nails & Tans, Inc.—you can give your skin a sun-kissed glow or get glossy hues for your fingernails. For the former, the salon has 12 European high-intensity tanning machines, which yield dark, natural tones that mimic a day at the beach or an apprenticeship as a campfire marshmallow.
For nail services, Prestige’s technicians utilize Tammy Taylor, OPI, and CND products. The result: perfectly manicured acrylic, Shellac, or natural nails. During European Touch spa pedicures, clients relax in Relaxor heated massage chairs while their feet indulge in a warm, soothing soak. Prestige’s nail techs can also turn their attention to children for birthday parties, which foreshadow the pampered luxury that comes with being an adult.

At Solar Tan & Spa in Miamisburg, experienced staff match clients with appropriate UV-tanning beds, available in traditional, high-pressure, or standup models oft favored by cows for naptime bronzing. Tanning experts also explain the subtle differences among three sunless options, including a booth with organic, paraben-free solutions and a custom-airbrushing session. The salon-and-spa side of the menu delves into other options, such as the detoxifying Fit infrared body wrap system or teeth-whitening treatments capable of brightening smiles up to 10 shades. Staff members are dedicated to clients' comfort and safety, and the salon itself is as clean as an unused whistle and open seven of the eight days each week.
