What You'll Get
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 $20, you get one airbrush-tanning session at Salon Karma, located in Cranberry Township (a $40 value). Hurry to redeem this Groupon, as it expires on June 1, 2011.
Salon Karma's owner, Alexis Stimmel, oversees a staff of skilled tanning technicians who upgrade skin status from dull to radiant during 30- to 45-minute airbrush-tanning sessions. While clients stand with their arms splayed, a body bronzer sprays on the necessary coats of tanning solution to achieve the desired color. Salon Karma's airbrushing service can also contour the body with shades that simulate the appearance of muscle definition or vestigial dorsal fins. Airbrush tanning is a safe alternative to UV-emitting tanning beds and results in a natural-looking hue that lasts 5 to 10 days—the same amount of time it takes to beat Salvador Dalí at Pictionary. Clients should avoid wearing light clothes or showering for 8–12 hours after the appointment.
