Humankind has been playing with fire for years, but has only recently harnessed the bronzing essence of the fiery sun in a relaxing bed, proving once and for all its dominance over the weak, inanimate solar system. Celebrate technological innovation with today’s Groupon: for $19, you get any two tanning sessions at Solar Salon, with locations in Chelsea and on the Upper East Side (up to a $48 value). Spray tanning is only available at the Chelsea location.
At Solar Salon, patrons will enjoy a slate of personalized tanning services administered in a comfortable, soothing atmosphere doused in modern décor, sleek furnishings, and lustrous finishes. Clients benefit from the industry’s best cutting-edge tanning equipment, such as the Chelsea location's SunSpritz UV-free system that mists exposed skin with a six-second spray packed with vitamins, bronzers, and moisturizers. The solution imparts a medium-brown glow for up to a week and is recommended for people pelts that don't take easily to tanning. Keep perspiration to a minimum while testing inner-ear strength in the vertical standup units found at either location. Using the essence of distilled glitter, the upright units employ VHR, or very high reflector technology, to instill a sparkling tan in eight minutes. The lie-down units boast open-ended tanning beds complete with adjustable fans and facial bulbs for optimal comfort and custom countenance hues.
Personal XM radios churn out energizing tunes during sessions, and a certified staff espouses 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 a walkie-talkie on the way to the dry cleaners.
