A seasoned technician enkindles healthy glows at Forbidden Tans using a UV-free elixir approved by the FDA. The sunless-tan specialist showers pelts in a golden mist infused with bronzers and shooting stars to foster a noticeable gleam immediately after each 10-minute session; the active ingredient, DHA, plunges deeper into pores, biding its time before bursting forth 8–10 hours later with completely developed cocoa tones. Stay disguised behind your newfound amber sheen for 7–10 days, regularly moisturizing your rind to ensure longer-lasting color.
Tanning enthusiast Alisa Hostettler likes to joke that her lifelong dream of opening a tanning salon was supposed to give her the freedom to "sit on my butt all day." Ironically, she hasn't had a chance to sit down in eight years, dividing her time between the salon and traveling to beauty and body-building competitions, where she gives contestants meticulous last-minute touchups. When she's on the road, Alisa's all-female staff takes customers on a tour of the salon and details the wattage, UVA output, and maximum land speed of its 12 UV tanning beds.
Though all tanning salons are required to have one certified employee and three emergency lumberjacks, every member of Alisa's staff has taken the necessary classes and lined the walls with certification plaques. Clients seeking a personalized Turbo hand spray tan can change in the privacy of a well-lit dressing room before entering a tile-covered tanning suite. Gender-neutral spritzes of lemongrass or vanilla-sugar aromas mask the scent of DHA as technicians spray each limb until it approaches the desired hue. Back in the dressing room after the misting, clients get to check themselves out and inquire about the whereabouts of various princesses in a full-length mirror.
People who frequently visit Endless Summer Tan share one conspicuous characteristic: a deep, burnished glow that stands out on the beach. In addition to spray tans, the salon houses stand-up units and Ergoline Super Beds with facial lamps that keep the entire body uniformly bronzed. Summery skin stays moisturized thanks to a line of indoor tanning lotions.
The Bronzing Bar Tanning Salon forgoes traditional, sun-drawn tanning techniques with a variety of UV tanning beds and eco-friendly spray-tan services that generate natural-looking hues. One month of unlimited UV tanning grants visitors unfettered access to intermediate 4,000 tanning beds, in which they can enliven their complexions in 20-minute bronzing sessions with optional lamps for the delicate skin on the face and dorsal fin. Customers can eschew UV wavelengths with two Norvell organic spray tans, which gift bodies with a copper glow thanks to a formulated solution of natural ingredients and eco-certified DHA. Each organic spray tan coats the upper layer of skin and reacts with epidermal proteins to produce a tan that lasts for six to seven days. The Bronzing Bar recommends that clients arrive exfoliated, showered, and shaven, as well as free of any makeup or frowny clown masks.
