Extensive research went into Ewelina and Michal’s decision to open the ‘Follow the Sun’ tanning salon a couple of months back. They filled what they saw as a gap in the market with the ‘new age of tanning’: top of the range tanning equipment and an immaculate, attractive décor, with the reception area dominated by a gorgeous lilac sofa – which Ewelina says customers love!
Light is life
Their award-winning, German manufactured Megasun sunbeds are considered top class worldwide. They are impressive, with their clean, elegant design and super reviews.
They are also friendly to use, with a display on the outside of the canopy. A friendly voice guides you through the functions. Special tubes provide that extra portion of Vitamin D and the fitness-conscious can tan and sculpt in a tower with a vibrating fitness function.
The salon is air-conditioned for comfort and a fragrant water mist helps refresh and revitalise while tanning. The unrivalled sound system makes it the perfect music experience! There is even a free water dispenser to make up for any fluids lost.
Sunbeds are thoroughly cleaned after every use. All rooms have protective goggles, antiperspirants, wet wipes and make up removers for convenience.
Fifty shades of tan
The charming Ewelina, a trained beautician, says clients are pleasantly surprised when they are not left with a red skin; the Megasun machines do not burn the skin but produce a golden-brown tan with best results seen after 48 hours, suitable for all skin types.
Bronzers, intensifiers and accelerators are sold in-store with prices kept reasonable, starting at £1.
Convenience is key
Sign up for their loyalty cards which offer discounts; in time, card-holders will receive personalised offers. Another convenience offered is that tanning time pre-purchased in bulk can be shared with family and friends.
A credit card machine, too, makes paying convenient.
