Although outdoor tanning allows humans to absorb the sun's natural energy, the sapped star will eventually turn pale and suffer the fate of Earth's original sun, the moon. Save the sun with today's Groupon to Solar Salon, valid in Chelsea and on the Upper East Side. Choose between the following options:
- For $19, you get any two tanning sessions (up to a $48 value).
- For $39, you get a one-month unlimited membership (up to a $129 value).
Solar Salon's certified staff guides guests through a customized computer system that calculates the perfect tan for each person's pelt. Customers can revel in spray tanning at the Chelsea location or select from a variety of UV-tanning beds at either locale. Soothing, eclectic music pulses as customers answer four pre-tan questions and complete three unfinished limericks at the salon's kiosk. Based on tanning history and skin type, the tanning calculator recommends a style of tanning and exposure time for each individual. Then, within private treatment rooms, customers smooth proprietary tanning lotions over their tanning targets and adjust eyewear, facial fans, and massaging sunbeam jets for comfort while tuning a personal XM radio to one of 120 stations. Unlimited membership unlocks a month of access to enough sessions to become as golden as King Midas' cell phone.
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.
