A recipient of Reader’s Choice honors from the North County Times and the Californian two years in a row, Perfect Tan bronzes bodies with a fleet of ultramodern tanning machines nestled amid the atmospheric glow of its chic interior. Patrons seeking a sunless bronze can opt for premier VersaSpa technology, which imparts a streak-free sheen that won’t streak onto clothes or bear-hug recipients. Clients can opt for a light, medium, or dark luster, and choose between an instantaneous bronze and a “clear” spray that manifests gradually over six hours.
Inspired by the upscale tanning salons of South Beach and Los Angeles, Vivid Tan focuses on shading skin to a warm, coppery glow within 15 minutes. The bronzing experts invite customers to stretch out in beds or enter Mystic HD standup booths, whose sweeping airbrush darkens skin evenly, unlike sunbathing in a bikini made from swiss cheese. The salon’s trained professionals also tint figures during Norvell airbrush tans, nourish skin with products from Designer Skin, Swedish Beauty, and Australian Gold, and even brighten smiles with WhiteScience teeth-whitening treatments.
Voted Best Tanning Salon on the Wake Weekly's 2011 Best of the Best list, Ohana Tanning Salon's staff airbrushes bodies with radiant hues from brands such as Australian Gold, while Level 1 beds let tanners recalibrate skin hues in 20-minute sessions. Before beginning precision sprays, technicians position patrons to ensure even coverage and blend colors to suit individual skin types, then fit skins with golden coats that last for up to 10 days or three dips in the neighborhood acid bath. Alternatively, customers can slip into a Level 1 tanning bed at regular intervals throughout the month, building up an appealing bronze hue.
The Spa of Pravana pairs its popular tanning services with spa treatments to help clients look and feel great. Visitors can use one of the spa's UV-tanning beds for a sun-kissed glow in as little as 8 minutes or step into a Mystic Tan standup booth for some quick spray-on color. Airbrush technicians are also available in the spa or on location to give clients a sunless tan with an FDA-approved solution instead of prune juice. Pravana also enlists the help of a board-certified doctor, licensed aesthetician, and certified massage therapist, so clients can supplement their freshly tanned physiques with youthful complexions, clear and soft skin, or relaxed muscles.
Sun Tan City’s trained tanning consultants help clients get bronzed via UV-free tanning booths and ergonomic tanning beds. Guests can schedule a single visit to touch up an existing tan, purchase a multivisit package to get a discounted rate, or become a member to take advantage of the salon’s 100% guarantee.
In the comfort of their own homes, clients transform from pale to tan thanks to Fully Bronzed’s traveling cadre of trained tanners. The staff arrives equipped with the Infinity Sun spray tanning system, which atomizes lotions blended with anti-oxidants and botanicals into a fine mist. In a pop-up tent that keeps any debris entirely contained and prevents a jealous sun from barging in, the staff mists the body during 15-30-minute sessions that leave the body glowing with a dark, natural looking tan.
