Part of the recently launched retail development on Woodchurch Road in Birkenhead, the new high-tech facility benefits from a £350,000 investment and is the second salon to open following the brand’s refresh. Indigo Sun is a supporter of responsible tanning with extensively trained staff able to offer guidance for all skin types. As well as premium beds and vertical units the salon will also be offering collagen red light therapy beds, which aid muscle recovery and help with ageing skin, stretch marks, scars, circulation, pigmentation and psoriasis. What’s more, modern sunbeds now boast features such as bluetooth, allowing customers to connect their phones and play their own music. They also have sophisticated aircon systems and sensitivity settings for specific skin types. Frank Taylor, founder and CEO of the family-run company says, “We know a large number of our customers have been making the trip into Liverpool and will be delighted to have an outlet on their doorstep. Likewise, we realised we may have been out of reach for many who’d like to be able to visit regularly.” The salon will be open 9am to 9pm on weekdays, and 10am to 8pm on Saturdays and Sundays.
