Midnight Sun, which was voted one of the country’s top 250 salons by Looking Fit, has bronzed the celebrity skins of Ashlee Simpson, Jessica Biel, and Carrot Top. The top-notch sunnery offers six different levels of high-quality beds and bulbs. If you'd like to give your skin a lustrous, fresh-off-the-beach glow without exposing it to tanning beds, beach bullies, or the powerful rays of our binary suns, opt for an excursion inside a comfortable Mystic Tan machine, which quickly coats skin with a special tanning solution.
Sunsations Tanning Salon, which has catered to beauty-pageant contestants such as Miss Oklahoma Alicia Clifton, gilds limbs with three levels of tanning beds and airbrush tanning. Clients recline in a traditional or wide-body bronzing bed or stay vertical in a standup bed while inside a large private room.
In addition to tanning, Sunsations offers facials and massages by its aesthetician, Shea. During signature facials, Shea deeply cleanses pores to remove built-up dirt and grime and any glitter left over from New Year’s Eve. She also kneads bodies with custom massage techniques, releasing toxins and turning muscles into butter.
Norvell-certified technicians at 24K Airbrush Tanning Studio mist epidermises in a nontoxic tanning solution that smells of raspberries and almonds. This FDA-approved concoction contains DHA derived from a vegetable source—usually sugar beets—and can keep limbs bronze for five to seven days. The studio also keeps its shelves stocked with other UV-free tanning products, such as bronzers, pH-balanced gels, lotions, and body washes. Before leaving, clients can pop their newly caramel-colored toes into attention-grabbing Lori Jack flip-flops, which are encrusted with Swarovski crystals.
Tameisha Walker has always found satisfaction in giving back to others. Though she mostly soothes the backs and shoulders of women, she has also worked with an organization that brings massage therapy to hospice patients. Tameisha's penchant for giving back is more than apparent in each of her massage treatments at Beyond Skin Deep. After listening to clients and taking note of what ails them, Tameisha devises custom treatments that incorporate soothing Swedish or penetrating deep-tissue strokes.
