Like a shrewd defense attorney, a spray tan can provide the plausible alibi of a Caribbean vacation. Achieve a skin tone to match the bronze scales of justice with today’s Groupon: for $19, you get one custom spray tan at Fusion Salon & Spa (a $45 value).
Fusion Salon & Spa's skilled beautifiers gild bodies with custom spray tans that shun the use of UV lights. During each 20-minute treatment, the spritzing power of an Italian airbrushing system evenly sheathes pelts with a DHA-based solution with organic botanicals and a fine mist of marinara sauce. As the safe solution interacts with epidermal proteins, the skin begins to deepen in color, leaving the physique with a natural-looking tan. Faux tans can last for up to seven days, and bronze hues gradually fade as the body sheds dead skin cells or transforms into a giant powdered donut. Sleek metal accents and black shag carpet add a touch of edge to the salon’s contemporary waiting room, where clients can snuggle into plush black couches framed by a flat-screen TV. Exposed-brick walls encase Fusion's salon area, which houses modern black chairs used for haircuts, shampoos, or marathon sitting contests.
