Humankind has been playing with fire for years, but now we can harness the bronzing essence of the fiery sun in a relaxing bed, proving once and for all our dominance over the weak, inanimate solar system. Celebrate technological innovation with today’s Groupon. For $24, you get either two bed or two spray-tanning sessions at Solar Salon (a $48 value), with locations in Chelsea and the Upper East Side. Spray tanning is only available at the Chelsea location.
At Solar Salon, customers will enjoy a comfortable atmosphere doused in modern décor, sleek furnishings, and lustrous finishes. Designed to lift spirits and soothe stressed-out visitors, Solar Salon’s locations focus on promoting an ambience of peace and well-being, distinctly unlike the ambience lent by a "My Buddy" doll after viewing the film Chucky. Clients benefit from the industry’s best cutting-edge tanning equipment and have access to personal XM radios and a certified staff that provides helpful information about proper skincare and exposure times. Additionally, the Chelsea location offers an advanced kiosk system that ensures quick check-ins, like those made by walkie-talkie on the way to the dry cleaners.
Earlier, technologically inferior societies valued powdery paleness and wish-granting leeches. However, it is no secret that a smooth tan waiting to show itself off beneath a bedazzled jumpsuit is the modern mark of refinement. After two visits to Solar Salon, clients will radiate with attention-grabbing sheen and draw admiring glances, like a freshly detailed Ferrari back from vacationing in the Bahamas.

The certified tanning staff at Solar Salon helps darken epidermises with industry-leading tanning equipment within modern, clean facilities. The salon’s brigade of upscale tanning beds, handpicked by the owners, bronze skin with UV spectrum light while patrons relax to tunes mixed by the in-house DJ, one of the 120 XM stations, or the sonorous wails of self-tickling plants. A fingerprint-identification kiosk checks visitors into the salon, where dark hardwood floors, sea-foam-green tile, and natural light mingle to create a sense of tranquility.
