Humankind has been playing with fire for years; now we can harness the bronzing essence of the fiery sun in bed or mist form, proving once and for all our dominance over the weak, inanimate solar system. Affirm your authority over the sun with today’s Groupon; for $29, you get one month of unlimited level-three UV tanning plus three bed upgrades (up to a $140 value) or two Versa spray tans (an $80 value) at Sunstyle Tanning in West Hollywood.
Sunstyle Tanning is a posh, modern sun haven with obsidian walls, massive illuminated photography, and fully stocked vanity bars. Bed-bound bronzers can choose between the Inspiration and Lounge tanning tubes throughout a month of color catching. The Inspiration spiffs traditional tanning with in-bed air conditioning and an MP3 docking station, and the Lounge affords pallor rejecters the comfort of a standup sunning first seen in equatorial telephone booths. Boost hues with three included upgrades for super-powered repose atop level-four beds such as the Affinity—which hones in on traditionally colorless spots including the face, neck, and tail—and the Open Sun 550, which dashes the closed-in concept of most beds and boasts an overhead flooding of faux rays.
Soul wrappers pining for less permanent pigmentation may opt for the UV-free bronzing of two Versa spray tans. The automated booth mists a coat of liquid summer skin; for an extra $20, a dry-skin quenching pretreatment and an anti-aging moisturizer lock in an even tan and make recipients 10 times less likely to crave dried prunes. The Versa booth boasts a spacious design that whistles a faux breeze to comfortably dry clients' new hues, and tans last for seven to nine days or for one overnight lock-in at Atlantis.
The biggest problem with the sun, aside from the constant specter of its imminent explosion, is that it is not open after dark. Sunstyle Tanning's extended hours kick in July 1, and the shop will be open Monday–Friday from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m., Saturday from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m., and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.
Though Sunstyle Tanning sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
A modern, glass-laden façade lures guests into the tanning salon's sleek lobby, whose slate floors and walls surround modern furnishings and vibrant artwork. Sunstyle Tanning's 7,000-square-foot facility houses a corridor lined with private treatment rooms that feature Ergoline sunbeds and VersaSpa spray-tanning systems. The spa's Smart Tan–certified concierges work to help guests to choose from an assortment of tanning apparatuses, which range from sensor-controlled UV-tanning beds to custom spray tans. Patrons may also take advantage of a fully stocked vanity bar and park their car or motor-unicycle in the spa's private lot.
