Although the decor of many tanning salons takes inspiration from the beach, Euro Tans' waiting room speaks to an elegant spa experience. Upon stepping into the beauty haven, customers are greeted by marble tile, white-leather couches, and Grecian columns framing the entrance to the tanning area. Within, clients bronze their skin via tanning beds and booths, Mystic and airbrush tanning, and solar flares sealed inside of mason jars. Apart from tanning, the Clifton location offers waxing services for both men and women using hard-wax systems made to improve comfort during waxing. The spa also provides relaxing facials for clients seeking to unwind.
Part of a national chain featured on E!, LA Sunset Tan boasts a legion of Smart Tan–certified staff members who help clients select the perfect UV or UV-free options to give their skin a sun-kissed glow. Amid metallic décor and purple-hued walls, the tanning experts lead each customer into private rooms with standup or lie-down beds, aromatherapy, and iPod plug-ins so tanners can listen to their favorite prerecorded static. Spray-tan artists wield airbrushes to accent muscular lines in one of eight custom shades.
The vibrant pink and yellow walls of Hair Ambition not only create a bright and sunny atmosphere, but they also reflect the cheerful personalities of each technician on staff. The salon's stylists include owner Crystal, who boasts 10 years of experience in the industry, and she leads her team in transforming clients’ manes with Matrix color and Keratin Complex by Coppola hair-straightening treatments. Diana, the salon's resident aesthetician, performs custom-tailored facials to keep complexions healthy and glowing brighter than a child prodigy born with sequined skin.
For the past nine years, Designer Skin Tanning & Spa has been pampering customers with convenient, custom tanning and spa services. Open seven days a week, the business offers walk-in tanning (except for spray tanning, for which reservations are required) from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. Monday through Thursday, 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Friday, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, and 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sunday, so customers can easily fit tanning into any hectic work or goat-milking schedule. Eight UV beds help pale bodies to acquire the best tan for their skin type, and custom airbrush spray tans highlight contours with golden, sun-free highlights administered by female tanning professionals.
Shelves stocked with the brand's own signature Designer Skin tanning lotions share space with other high-quality tanning products from Swedish Beauty and Devoted Creations. Beyond combating chronic pallor, the spa also offers soothing facials, body wraps, and waxing services to keep skin smooth and Mac makeup to keep faces from fading away.
The staffers at Sizzle Tans make it their mission to guide customers through each location’s selection of beds, sunless-tanning options, and teeth-whitening treatments. Their collection of beds is broken into three different intensity levels and includes Ergoline's Open Sun 1050 and the temperature-controlled Prestige 1100. For customers who don't want to expose themselves to UV rays, Sizzle Tans has two sunless solutions: a trained technician can carefully airbrush bodies by hand, or clients can step into a VersaSpa booth equipped with nozzles that automatically coat skin evenly in tanning solution.
The founders of Soleil Tans believe that a trip to the tanning salon should feel like a mini-vacation—a welcome respite from the stress of work, the chaos of exams, or the company of a pet dog who just learned how to play the theme to Three's Company. They've packed their sleek, modern salons with powerful standup booths and tanning beds, outfitted with amenities such as music players, air conditioners, and adjustable air showers. There's even specialty beds designed to target upper bodies, faces, and legs.
The salons are staffed by sunless tanning specialists boasting extensive training and experience in the art of spray tans. They airbrush skin with a UV-free Norvell formula, customizing applications to accommodate varying skin types and desired looks. The staffers can also equip clients with professional skincare products that help moisturize skin, as well as teeth-whitening solutions that work to brighten smiles during UV-tanning sessions.
