Tropical tanning is a trendy new way to look like a beach bum, and while the process is no stranger to the internet, it’s been around for decades.
Now, a new salon is opening in the Boston area that caters to people looking to get away from the sun, with a twist.
The salon, Paradise Tanning, is located in Brookline’s Belmont neighborhood, which boasts a beach, a public beach, and a beach house.
It offers beach tanning and other tanning services, including bubble baths, a spa treatment and body waxing, and more.
The new salon was built in the wake of a 2015 storm that brought tropical conditions to the region.
While the town of Brookline has been flooded, Paradise is still offering free beach access to residents and visitors.
The company said the business opened just a few months ago and is already growing quickly.
The business is not only an alternative to the sun for some, but also a way to help those in need.
The owner, Jessica Kieffel, said the salon is helping people with disabilities, people who can’t afford a spa, and anyone with a physical or mental condition.
“Our goal is to help people who need us, and that’s why we’re doing this,” she told Boston.com.
“I really wanted to get the word out and be a little more of a community resource.”
