Bloomingdale’s shoppers and East Side execs get quick color at this expansive second-floor tanning salon where clients must navigate a sprawling waiting area and narrow, mazelike hallway to find their way to one of seventeen private rooms; the salon is equipped with five types of tanning beds and two different sprays to simulate reddening and browning rays for just about every possible skin tone. The trained staff can provide suggestions as to which sunless treatment to use—standard beds, stand-up units, or UV-free—but unlike other tanning salons, patrons purchase points rather than sessions, a set-up which encourages experimentation with multiple methods. (California Tan products are for sale, along with accelerator lotions and post-tan moisturizers.)
