Professional tanning services available in salon, or your home


If you are looking for that natural glow without any UV rays, you have some options.

Amy Harshaw is the owner of Kingwood Spray Tan. She's a one-woman mobile tan specialist who literally sets up a tanning tent wherever you are.

"My equipment is completely mobile so I can pack it up in the car and come to you," she said. "So it's done in the privacy of your home."

For $35 you get a customized color. With three or more people, the price goes down to $30 a person. If you have five people, the host tans for free.

In Missouri City, Cheri Ingram with Classy Tan also sets up a mobile tan tent. Cheri's price for one air brush tan is $40 per person. For five to eight people, the price drops to $35, and with nine or more people, it's $30.

If you want a salon experience, the price varies. At the Upper Hand Salon, it's $40 a session.

Planet Beach salon is known for its Mystic Tan.

"It sprays on you and you have a developing time of six to 12 hours," said a spokesperson. "It's designed to be natural looking."

One session is $45, but membership packages can include the Mystic Tan.

If you are going to get spray tanned by a professional or machine, experts recommend to help the tan set, you exfoliate before your appointment and arrive freshly showered.
