Beach Bum Tanning's high-tech beds, sunless booths, and tailored beauty treatments regularly appear in press outlets such as Allure magazine. The salon's heated Mystic HD booths spritz bodies with vibrant pigment while warming skin to ensure optimal and even color saturation without having to bear-hug King Midas. Certified Airbrush Artists also implement customized airbrush tans over 150 ways by using a combination of fine-point-guided and wide-point-guided guns to shade and contour a custom-tinted tan to the body's curves, bends, and highway overpasses.
The staff at Tan Factory bronzes their clients’ birthday suits with UV-free airbrush tanning for the entire body, enlisting the manmade sunshine found in California Tan products. During the 20-minute sessions, tanning technicians slather hides in sun-kissed hues that can last from 7–10 days or until clients tumble into a vat of Liquid Paper. Tan Factory continuously seeks out current technology and supplements its spray applications with lotions from Australian Gold and Swedish Beauty. Tanning mavens recommend exfoliating beforehand and wearing loose clothing to the sessions, and recommends that customers avoid any moisturizers, fragrances, and laser-light shows on the day of the treatments.

What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
As a devoted tanner I always wanted to have my own salon that not only had great product, but also provided outstanding customer service, which most places tend to lack. I love to educate and help my customers find what best suits them. I love to interact and know my customers on a first-name basis.
What do you love most about your job?
Love having people come here to release the day's stress. They always walk out feeling energized and good about themselves. Everyone walks out with a smile and that makes me feel good too!
What is the best reaction you've ever gotten from a customer?
I had a customer that was very emotional about her body. She had lost over 100 lbs. She was shaking and crying. I gave her a pep talk the whole way through her airbrush session. She walked out with happy tears. Her son then walked in and said thank you?he hadn't seen his mom smile like that in years.
