Like ripened fruits, people with healthy-colored skin tend to spend less time hanging from trees and are more likely to get picked up at the grocery store. Catch the eye of passersby and orangutans with today’s Groupon: for $25, you get one month of unlimited tanning on an HT42 bed, or two glow-level to medium-level Mystic spray-tans (up to a $50 value) at Hollywood Tans of Chantilly.
Hollywood Tans, one of the nation’s largest chains of tanning salons, enlivens epidermises with a special alchemic process known as Tanetics. In application, Tanetics entails the skin specialists considering each customer’s tanning goal, skin tone, and skin sensitivity before helping craft the ideal spectrum-shifting regimen. Five to six 11-minute bouts inside Hollywood Tans’ HT42 booth leave the pelt polished with a glossy base tan that's preferable for afternoons at the beach or scandalous nights at the Laundromat. Those interested in a UV-free tegument transformation can also opt for two glow-level to medium-level Mystic spray-tans ($19–$25) that de-pale pasty pigment with misty coats of bronze that last five to seven days.
Appointments are not required at Hollywood Tans, so prospective tanners are free to walk in on a whim, annex a bed, and enjoy the satisfaction of doing their part to put the sun out of business.
With more than 140 salons nationwide, Hollywood Tans has left its richly toned mark on bodies from coast to coast. Four varieties of vertical HT-manufactured booths welcome clients to bask in their UV glow and walk out 10 minutes later looking like a bronze statue of themselves. Instant Tan spray systems powered by Mystic Tan yield an even, natural tan in the shade of the client's choice that lasts up to seven days.
