What You'll Get
Humankind has been playing with fire for years, but now we can harness the bronzing essence of the fiery sun with modern technology, proving once and for all our dominance over the weak, inanimate solar system. Celebrate technological innovation with today’s Groupon to Solar Salon, with locations in Chelsea and the Upper East Side. Choose between the following tanning options:
- For $30, you get one airbrush tanning session (a $70 value; airbrush tanning only available at the Chelsea location)
- For $24, you get two bed sessions or two spray-tanning sessions (up to a $48 value; spray tanning only available at the Chelsea location)
Both of today's options offer a slew of shade-shifting customizations. Patrons can bronze up in a single airbrush session, during which a trained spritzer applies an exfoliating tanning solution to the skin, providing an even, streak-free tan. The treatment further enhances epidermises with customizable contouring that accentuates curves and masks body flaws, such as soft bellies or dorsal fins.
Clients who prefer to tan horizontally can kick back in one of Solar Salon's spacious UV tanning beds, and the vertically inclined can step into the Sunspritz spray booth, which provides similar results to the airbrush session, but with significantly more robots.
While waiting to be shaded, guests can enjoy Solar Salon's revitalizing atmosphere doused in modern décor, sleek furnishings, and lustrous finishes. Solar Salon further accommodates clients with access to personal XM radios and a certified staff that provides helpful information about proper skincare. Additionally, the Chelsea location offers an advanced kiosk system that ensures quick check-ins.
Citysearchers and five Yelpers give the Upper East Side location of Solar Salon an average of four stars. Citysearchers give the Chelsea location an average of 4.5 stars, and Yelpers rate it an average of 3.5 stars.
