Men everywhere are discovering the benefits of tanning indoors. In a recent study, TIME Health found that an estimated 1.9 million men in the U.S. use tanning beds, the majority being teens and college students. Although, they noted a 177% increase in tanning bed usage among men between ages 40 to 49 and 71% higher among men 50 and up.

More and more men are looking for the easiest way to get that gorgeous bronze look. At Tan Unique, we have the answers!

First Timers

First time visiting a tanning salon? No problem! Our friendly and knowledgeable staff will be happy to assist you with everything you need to get that perfect golden look. If you’re not sure how long your tanning sessions should be, our employees can recommend the best possible tanning regimen for your skin type.

Avoid tan lines! Tanning beds allow you to have absolute control of your UV exposure, ensuring the safest and most even tan.

Check out our SHORT GUIDE TO INDOOR TANNING LOTIONS for a thorough background in the different kinds of tanning lotions. Most tanning lotions are designed for men and women, but there are some brands exclusively for men.

Also, make sure to take a look at our FAQ’s on TANNING BEDS and SPRAY TANNING.

Work It

There’s a reason the expression goes: “Tall, Dark, and Handsome.” The deep bronzed look is iconic.

Spending hours at the gym, getting the perfect haircut, buying a dozen different brands of acne cream – when it comes down to it, a tan is probably the easiest thing to do when you’re trying to make yourself appear more attractive.

And it works! Studies show that women respond more to men with a healthy golden skin color. Tanning accentuates your muscles and makes your teeth appear whiter, for a glowing smile.

Save Time

We know you guys are used to just rolling out of bed and looking that good. Well, the best thing about going to a tanning salon instead of sunbathing outdoors is the perfectly golden tan you get in a fraction of the time! Tanning sessions usually last less than 15 minutes, and then you’re left in a cooly air conditioned room feeling refreshed and relaxed instead of sunburned and uncomfortably hot in the scorching summer heat.

Our VersaSpa spray tan booth offers the ideal tan in as little as one 10-minute session, with four customizable options (Glow, Light, Medium or Dark).

James, one of our regulars, had this to say about it: “I got the spray tan for my trip to Las Vegas over spring break. Wow! I followed the owners advice and it was the best tan I have ever had! Very uniform!!! Also, I needed to look good the entire week in Vegas, and without exception each day I was there it never faded! Even though I showered every day the color remained consistent. Thank you Richard and Kristy!!! I will be back! And I promise to tell everyone about your exceptional service!” (26 April 2016)
