Bronze Buns Tanning Salon opens its doors seven days a week so pallid bodies can bronze. Patrons can take catnaps atop tanning beds while their skin darkens ever so slightly. Custom Spray Soleil and Mystic tans imbue guests with a golden hue without the harmful effects of UV rays.
Beach Beauty Booth specializes in vegan airbrush tans at their salon—and in their portable tanning tent, which they set up at special events. Crafted from an all-natural, aloe-based formula, each tan is custom blended to the client's color specifications, and applied by hand. The result is an even glow that dries in 15 minutes or less, sped on its way by the salon's fans.
To complement their natural sunless tans, the salon also offers a variety of skin care treatments, performed by experience aesthetician Gisele. Their facials brighten complexions with Environ skin care products, whose formulae brim with antioxidants like vitamin A and C. Other treatments incorporate cutting-edge technology, such as skin-plumping ultrasound waves, or a diamond-tipped microdermabrasion wand, stolen from Cindy Crawford's fairy godmother.
Darque Tan's arsenal of beds, booths, and nourishing lotions infuses visiting bodies with sun-kissed color. Along with at least 20 tanning beds, each location brims with tan-savvy staff members—each certified through the International Smart Tan Network—who can work with you to customize a program based on your tanning goals, skin type, and relation to black-and-white movie starlets. Sessions take place in private rooms that line a column-flanked hallway, where five different levels of UV beds give skin the perfect level of tanning. Mystic Tan and VersaSpa sunless-tanning systems imbue clients with a hydrating, natural-looking glow, which can be customized according to skin tone, desired shade, and spirit animal. A full-time cleaning staff keeps each center in pristine conditions by referencing a 50-point inspection system. Most locations have books, televisions, and kids’ play areas to keep children entertained while adults are bronzing.
UV light from five levels of tanning booths and beds sets all-white interiors aglow at Total Tan's two locations in West Hollywood and Marina Del Rey. Designed by upscale brands such as Ergoline and Matrix, each bronzing chamber cossets clients with amenities including voice-guided operated controls, music, and cooling fans that pump air directly from Total Tan's sister salon in the Antarctic. Patrons can enhance sessions with lotions from brands such as California Tan and Australian Gold.
Alternatively, custom airbrush spray tans evenly coat skin with Infinity Sun solution, whose cocktail of DHA and pure botanicals leaves bodies bronzed for up to 10 days. Inside Total Tan's cellulite bike chamber, infrared lights work to smooth cellulite problem areas as the client pedals a stationary bike at 75% maximum heart rate in an attempt to escape the nearby stationary rottweiler.
Uvasun, mentioned on the hit show Entourage, keeps its clients paparazzi-ready with an array of tanning services. Controlled UV rays bronze the skin inside standup and lie-down tanning capsules. Alternatively, spray systems coat skin in color and hydration, using formulas that include Mystic Tan and Uvasun’s exclusive tanning spray, Liquid Sun, which is designed to look natural and more uniform while giving off a pleasant citrus scent that makes it easier to hide in orange groves. Other forms of light benefit the skin and body in different ways, from acne-treating blue light to anti-aging red light to SlimStar body wraps, which draw on the infrared portion of the light spectrum to contour the body.
