The Differences In Tanning Salons

Apr 26, 2008
Not all tanning salons are the same, and consumers are being more conscious about this. They want to get a deep golden color from their tanning efforts, but they also want to know they are safe, get the information they need, be treated well when they enter the facility, and have their appointment time honored. If a tanning salon can't offer all of this then they won't remain in business very long.

One of the biggest issues to be concerned with is safety. Tanning is an option rather than necessity. You don't want the experience to turn bad due to cords being out where you can trip or the tanning areas not being kept clean. The equipment also need to be well maintained with emergency shut off switches clearly marked.

The tanning salon should readily offer information to you. This type of information needs to cover how the tanning equipment works, the risks of skin cancer from UV rays that are found in tanning beds and booths, and information on the various products they offer in the salon. The staff should know what they are talking about so they can offer suggestions such as how long you should tan at each session for your skin type.

A good tanning salon realizes that your time is important. If you have an 11 am appointment that is when a tanning area should be available to you. Find out what their policies are on this before you pay for anything. If you will be kept waiting on a regular basis due to over scheduling or people coming in late then go to another facility.

Make sure you check out the various types of tanning equipment in it. This way you can have what you want access to available. Most tanning salons offer both tanning beds an booths. Not all of them do though so make sure you ask what they feature. Many have also added sunless tanning equipment for those that are concerned about UV rays but still want a great look.

Individual attention and service should be something you look for in a tanning salon. You should be greeted when you walk in or when you call them. Ask for a tour of the tanning salon so you can see for yourself if it is right for you. If you don't feel comfortable then it likely isn't the right place for you to tan at.

For many people, tanning is something of a luxury. They want to do it but at a good price. They don't want to spend too much money in order to look good. Compare the price but also the features, the service, and how far it is to the tanning facility. Based on all of these factors you can make a good decision. Some tanning salons offer a free session so this could be a chance for you to really check it out without spending a cent.

Not all tanning salons are the same, and consumers need to be aware of this fact. Taking the time to find out what is available will help ensure you get a very good deal. It also serves as encouraging the owners of these tanning salons to continually offer better services. They have to be able to offer what customers are looking for or they will lose business to the competition.
