Realizing that every minute spent primping takes away from their clients' free time, the staff of Body & Sol Tanning Boutique streamlines their services so clients can get in, get bronzed, and get out. Clients can simply walk in to the chain location closest to home, after which they consult with the Smart Tan-certified staff over which tanning method is most suitable for their skin. After deciding on intensity and length of sessions, clients hop into one of the five tiers of UV bed. The salon also offers UV-free options such as the automated Mystic HD booth, which is loaded with four different shades of tanning pigment, all of which seep into skin through the use of heated rays. Clients can choose to deepen tans with a range of Devoted Creations tanning accelerators, or simply heighten a tan's contrast with surgically implanted angel wings or the salon's BleachBright teeth-whitening kits.
Colorful parrot statues adorn bright blue walls, giving KoKoMo Glow Tanning Boutique the very tropical feel its clients aim for with its services. The tropical vibe extends to private tanning rooms, where framed beach scenes hang on the wall and clients bask in the glow of body and face bulbs for up to 20 minutes per session. Custom spray tans also bronze pelts, but without harsh UV-rays or the sun constantly guilt-tripping you over your lack of helping the solar system generate energy through the effervescent fusion of hydrogen into helium and other heavier elements, such as carbon and silicon. KoKoMo Glow Tanning also maintains a boutique in which it purveys a slew of sandals, sundresses, bags, and jewelry.
The extensively trained and certified technicians at Bahama Mama's Tanning have been helping guests to look their bronzed best for more than 14 years. Based on individual needs, the crew steers patrons towards a sunless VersaSpa experience or a variety of high-quality UV equipment, including traditional horizontal beds or vertical booths. The Ergoline Ambition 250 bed, for example, combines UV lamps and high-pressure facial bulbs with a cooling rotary foot fan. To enhance tans, staffers recommend products such as lotion made by Australian Gold, Jersey Shore's JWoww, and King Midas.
Carefully balancing starter platters stacked with housemade cornbread and frozen margaritas, the servers at Casa del Sol wind their way through the tables on the outdoor deck overlooking the water. As diners dig into burritos, the flavors of chicken or carnitas meld with garnishes of mango and pineapple or with ingredients from one of four other unique burritos. Meat dishes span many styles, from pork-loin medallions with garlic-adobo sauce to enchiladas verdes with a choice of meat or cheese filling. The inside dining area's bright yellow and purple walls adorned with paintings of whirling dancers complement the bright flavors of the dishes, often delicately evoked by cilantro, poblano chili pepper, or guacamole.
Sundays Blue Box Tanning Resort's fleet of European-imported tanning equipment polishes pallid epidermal canvases into glowing, copper sculptures. Sun Angel photoelectric sensors analyze guests' skin tones to calculate the optimal temperature and time needed to bronze bodily temples without overbaking them. A bouquet of herbal body washes and creamy lotions from Jordan Rae, Signature, and Ed Hardy enhance clients' natural-looking copper hues. In addition to tanning services, Sundays’ team helps guests lose inches and ease pain with PhysEdge Fit infrared body wraps. The 60-minute wraps work in tandem with the Fit Booster mineral spray to burn up to 1400 calories, aiming to simulate the effects of a six- to nine-mile run while guests relax in a private room equipped with a flat-screen TV. Early morning and evening hours at all of Sundays' sixteen locations ensure guests will never again be mistaken for a scared polar bear.
