As a boutique-style salon, The Painted Lady Tanning & Spa offers airbrush tanning, Mystic Tan sunless tanning, UV tanning, and anti-aging infrared-light therapy, as well as a range of massage, facial, and waxing services. The staff guides beginners through their first sessions, allowing clients to get acquainted with the equipment, such as the Beauty Angel, before taking it for a spin or on a second date. They also assist guests in the process of selecting their desired level of tan, choosing from three levels of color that range from light to dark?or, as the salon refers to them, from "the Longoria" to "the Kardashian" to "the Snooki."
The sunless-bronzing mavens at Let's Glow Spray Tan—including a licensed aesthetician—get epidermises glowing with custom, hand-applied color. During the 15- to 20-minute appointment, an experienced airbrush artist thoroughly evaluates the client's skin type to determine a natural shade, ranging from a light, subtle sun-kissed color to a bold, dark sun-french-kissed hue. Next, aestheticians mix up a tailored solution—made with paraben-free, 99% organic ingredients—that bronzes as well as tones skin with firming agents and nourishes with aloe vera and vitamins A, C, and E, tinting pelts for up to 7–10 days.
For nearly 20 years, the tan technicians at Soleil Tanning Salons have transformed pasty soul sacks into bronze living statues using UV and UV-free tanning techniques. Before tan sessions, friendly staffers educate patrons on how to get the most out of tans by using tanning lotions designed to stimulate melanin and extend the life of darker dermises. Soleil Tanning Salons are equipped with standing and horizontal tanning beds as well as UV-free MagicTan booths. The automated process typically takes 60 seconds and gives skin a golden glow thanks to micromists of custom tanner. No matter what bronzing method is chosen, tanners can rest easy knowing they will avoid burns associated with sunbathing atop radioactive beach towels.
