A franchise dedicated to efficiently transforming bodies from pale to golden, J2 Tanning has experienced its own swift evolution. In its first three years, the business blossomed from a single salon to a seven-location tanning institution that serves the entire Lansing area. Their run of success is no surprise. The salons go out of their way to foster client comfort, with private treatment rooms, spray deodorant, washcloths, and hotel-like amenities. Their stable of tanning beds offers four different levels of intensity, so guests can tailor their UV experience to suit their complexion. Certified spray-tan technicians can custom apply a bronze glow in eight-minute sessions, allowing clients to adopt a golden hue before hitting the beach or sneaking into King Midas?s house.
With a combined 25 years of experience, the Smart Tan–trained staff of Sun Studio simplifies the shade-deepening process for customers by eliminating appointments, contracts, and long-term commitments. Staff members direct sun-seekers to a suitable UV-tanning bed: 15- and 20-minute regular beds build a base tan on birthday suits with UVB-rich rays, and VHR beds equip bodies with long-lasting glow utilizing a higher percentage of UVA rays delivered in 9- or 12-minute increments. Private, automated sunless-tanning booths coat epidermises for tans that deepen four to six hours after sessions, last five to seven days, and fool 9 out of 10 swim school admissions counselors. The studio also improves appearances with restorative red-light therapy, which aims to fade fine lines, stretch marks, age spots, and acne with infrared light.
At Simple as 1, 2, Tan, there are two ways to get a sun-kissed glow: absorb ultraviolet light or soak up bronzer. The tanning studio houses stand-up and lay-down UV beds as well as Mystic HD, an automated spray-tan booth that warms the body while coating it in a DHA-based formula. Prior to initiating the airbrush jets, patrons can select a shade of bronzer and add aromas or enhancers.
Body beautification can take many forms, and at Ultra Tan, tanning is just the tip of the iceberg. In addition to bronzing skin with spray tans and a UV capsule called The Cyberdome, the friendly staff provide massage and aesthetic services that help customers feel and look good from head to toe. Men and women can stop by for a haircut or a manicure or schedule a body-slimming massage after swallowing a birthday cake python-style. Aestheticians also embellish faces with cosmetics, sharing their makeup tricks with others during lessons.
Inside Salon Soteria, dedicated stylists spoil hair with products from Aveda, Schwarzkopf, and Redken while crafting new styles and amplifying beauty. The collection of services extends to include mani-pedis, makeup artistry, waxing, and ear piercing. Staff members can perform full makeovers on individuals and tend to the beauty needs of entire bridal parties or Civil War reenactors readying for battle.
