As the days grow longer and the temperatures rise, spring fever is sure to set in, along with the temptation to show off a little skin. But as you look in the mirror, you soon discover that your winter hibernation has left your skin looking tired and drained. Don’t despair! Touch of Sun tanning salon is here to the rescue. In no time at all, you will look better and feel better with a summer glow.
Touch of Sun, located in Owasso, Sand Springs and Stillwater, is like no other salon. Featuring Royal Sun tanning equipment, you will tan faster, and your tan will last longer than many other beds you have tried before. They pride themselves on offering the perfect bed for every level of tanner.
For those who want to have that “just vacationed” look, Touch of Sun is thrilled to offer state-of-the-art, age-defying sunless tanning. Called Versa-Spa, this system is a full body treatment that allows you to select from a combination of solutions that will not only bronze your skin, but also smooth it. Giving you instant color, this system is the best on the market when it comes to creating a spa-like session that results in the healthy, natural look of sun-kissed skin. It is the perfect option for last-minute special events and for those who just want a little color every now and then.
The next level of tanning is the Express bed. This is a 32-lamp, 15-minute maximum system. Utilizing this bed, tanners can achieve a good base tan by coming in every other day, and then can maintain their look with three to four visits per week.
Perhaps the most popular choice is the Turbo Royal Sun 50 bed. This is a 12-minute maximum system and boasts 46 lights. “One of the reasons this bed is our most popular is the size of it,” states manager Megan Shelton. “It is very comfortable and has four high-power facial lights as well. This bed helps you tan faster, and the tan lasts longer than with the Express bed.” Maintaining your glow is easy with this choice too – only one or two visits per week are all that is needed.
Two high-pressure choices are also available at Touch of Sun. The Ultra High Ultra Bronze system really makes the client feel pampered during the visit. This system allows you to lie on a mattress while enjoying a truly relaxing vibrating massage. This bed is rated for no more than 24 minutes, 12 minutes on each side, and it allows you to achieve a deep base tan in very few sessions. The other high pressure bed is an Ultra High UV Scan system. With less burning rays than other beds, this is a great choice for those with a busy schedule, allowing tanners to have significantly fewer visits and save time and money.
The equipment is just one way that Touch of Sun sets itself apart from other tanning salons. “We always offer the first tan for free to those that want to just see if this is right for them,” explains Megan. “We are confident that when they try our equipment and see how clean and well maintained our salons are, they won’t want to go anywhere else.”
Another huge advantage customers have is the training all Touch of Salon employees receive. They go through an extensive Smart Tan Certification program. This gives them the knowledge needed to explain to customers the history of tanning, how to properly care for their skin while tanning, and even talk about why skin tans in the first place. They are also educated on each of the systems they use within the salon to pair you up with the best bed to achieve your desired results.
Give Touch of Sun a try, and they are confident you will see the difference. They don't do contracts or drafting, and they offer renewal prices for those who continue to purchase with them. Hours are 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. Saturday, and noon to 7 p.m. Sunday. For more information, call Megan at (918) 274-3931.
