I am a former employee of this salon. I will let you all in on a few secrets. Diana Fritz the owner will lie to your face and tell you all of the bed have new bulbs. Bed 6 ( the stand up has not been changed in over three years) Bed 2,9,3, and 5 where changed at the earliest 11 months ago. The other bed I know are looking at at least over 2 years and bed 11 has not had it's bulbs changed in 4 years. Bulbs should be changed ever 900-1000 hours. Bed 3 runs ever day all day 9am-8pm for 20 minutes. That is about 180 minutes per day with time for changing clothes. You do the math there. I have seen many people leave the salon horribly burned on their back side because the bed cleaners are lazy in whipping up the bed and thus leaving tingle lotion on bed in return horribly burning people who have just stared tanning. Diana sells hair products that are labled not for retail sail (trail packs) for $10 each when she got them for free to give to people from the distributor. The salon is FILTHY!! If you dare go look in the cabnets they are filled with hair, the combs, brushes and rollers are all filled with hair. The wax pot is notoriously double dipped in by three of the staff members. This is what causes MRSA . The staff gets no formal training in tanning, no continuing education for the stylists, sells expired tanning lotion at full price. I have seen employees running around barfoot during the summer as well in the salon. Diana Fritz refuses to pay any of her stylist min wage. Most stylists make around $2-$3 and hour at her salon. She will not pay them any more then that because she claims to make under $300,000 per year so she is not required to pay it. Her front desk are paid $5 per hour for 90 days then get $6.50 there after with no raise option. Funny thing is she owns a $249,900 house on timberline ridge road , $230,000 hours on Holiday Lake and 3 Pieces of land equaling $10,000 on holiday lake as well. She has a huge SUV a Huge truck and 2 other brand new cars plus a boat and rv. And she claims she can not pay any of the staff min wage. She is a horrible boss who could care less about her employees. In the past year 4 people have left and 3 where fired for horrible reasons on her part. She is now down to one stylist (4 seats total) and 3 front desk people two of those being idiot highschoolers who look at it as a time to text and talk to their boyfriends. Bottom line, this place is dirty, over priced, sells expired products, has bulbs in beds that don't even do anything. Go else where asap!!

Tropical Tans has competitive pricing on their tanning packages. The beds are always very clean. Usually you can make a same-day appointment as well. Discounts are offered to high school students through the school newspaper, and you can't beat Tuesdays super-cheap tanning rates.
