Inside Executive Tans' welcoming salon, a quartet of UV-tanning beds and an experienced airbrush-tanning artist await to burnish skin in a sultry summer glow. The selection of UV bed styles includes one standup booth and the Classic Legs bed, which only tans the gams to match more naturally tan upper bodies or to even out sock and ankle-watch tan lines. Coating bods in a UV-free tan, the trained staff wields an airbrush wand to spray skin in a finely textured pigmented mist, leaving skin with a streak-free glow lasting for five to seven days. Patrons can don one of the salon's paper bikinis or bring their own swimsuit, resting assured that the nonstaining spray easily washes out of clothing. The salon's shelves are stocked in a variety of tanning lotions, which hydrate skin while prolonging tans for weeks of beachside strolls or parading around Antarctica to make the citizens jealous.
