Prior to tanning salons, the only way to achieve a beautiful copper glow was to boil pennies and bathe in the scalding reduction. Achieve a less painful sheen with today's Groupon for an airbrush tan or tanning bed sessions at Paradise Tan in Wellington. Choose between the following options:
• For $19, you get one professional airbrush tan (a $45 value)
• For $29, you get three diamond-level tanning-bed sessions (a $79 value)
Paradise Tan bronzes bodies with hand-applied airbrush tans and high-pressure beds aglow with bulbs swapped out a maximum of every 250 hours. The customizable airbrush tans let customers choose their depth of color and fix tan lines earned while inadvertently sharing a cab with a solar flare. During the application, clients can wear whatever they feel conformable with, though men must wear some form of underwear. The organic, hypoallergenic Norvell spray tan is applied by hand to ensure a nearly flawless, streak-free bronze that, with proper care, can last between five to seven days.
Alternately, the diamond-level Sungate tanning bed coats skin with pleasant hues using 52 reflector lamps, four 1,000-watt high-pressure face tanners, and one pretty bright candle. During each 8–10-minute session, clients are cooled by mist and air conditioning while aromatherapy relaxes from the nostrils down. Paradise Tan keeps clients comfortable with spacious rooms outfitted with a radio, CD player, and an iPod dock to play personal music or regale listeners with the history of personal-stereo technology.
Paradise Tan expedites a hot, slow process with three levels of UV beds and two spray-tanning options along with a team of mobile airbrush artists ready to take their spray tans on the road. Five UV beds and booths boast sessions no longer than 15 minutes; the high-pressure Supersonic shortens the time to 7 minutes and the Sungate boasts special facial bulbs and shoulder tanners. Armed with Norvell solutions and a light touch that has brought them to weddings, beauty pageants, and body-building events, the airbrush technicians evenly coat limbs in a natural, golden color that develops in as little as 1 hour. A VersaSpa spray-tan booth spritzes a custom misting to let visitors emerge bearing a sun-kissed appearance without the gaudy hues of the sun's cut-rate lipstick. Lotions from Designer Skin and Ed Hardy speed the process by increasing circulation and moisture, and Tykini bikinis imported from Brazil reveal results. Evincing their dedication to vitamin D, the staff keeps the salon open every night until 10 p.m.
