Q: How do I cancel my account?
A: To cancel your membership, simply stop into any of our area Ashley Lynn's locations.
Q: How does the freeze program work?
A: The freeze program is a great option for someone who is not planning to tan for anywhere from 1 up to 12 months. It only costs $5(+tax) per month to put your account onto a freeze, but all of that money gets credited back to you to use as in-store credit for upgrades or lotion when you begin tanning again. Also, putting your account on hold is better than cancelling because any upgrades will be saved for you and you won’t have to pay any sign-up fees when you are ready to start tanning again!

A: If you moved out of the state and will be unable to stop into an Ashley Lynn's location to cancel your membership, please refer to the “Locations” section. You can contact the Store Leader of your main location via phone or email and they can take care of the cancellation.

A: In order to cancel your account, you would have needed to physically stop into an Ashley Lynn's location and sign a cancel log. If you remember doing this and you have a confirmation number, you will need to call or stop into the location that you did the cancellation and speak with a Store Leader. They will be able to assist you further with any issues.

A: Yes, you are able to change which membership you have to a different as long as your first billing commitment has been met. You can do this as often as you need to better fit your lifestyle and tanning needs. Please keep in mind that once you upgrade or downgrade your membership, it is required that you keep that membership for a minimum of one billing cycle before upgrading or downgrading again.

Q: If I cancel my account, why do I lose my upgrade packages?
A: When you cancel your membership, you will also lose any upgrades that are on your account. This is due to the fact that as a member you receive discounts on the upper level equipment. Guest prices are for anyone who does not have one of our memberships. If and when you cancel your membership, you will be subject to guest prices from then on. *Remember that we do offer a “Freeze” option which will save your upgrades!*
Q: Can I share a membership with someone else?
A: At Ashley Lynn's we do require that there is only person using each account/membership. This is to ensure that we accurately know each person’s skin type to make sure that you are getting the best tan possible! At times we may ask for a photo ID to verify that multiple persons are not tanning on one account or to get the correct spelling of your name when looking up your account. Please do not be offended, we are doing this for your security, as well as ours.

Q: Do you have spray tanning?
A: Most Ashley Lynn's Tanning locations (excluding 14th & Farnam, North Liberty and Iowa City) have the VersaSpa spray tan booth. We currently offer 3 Spray Tans for $39 (retail value $90). Visit www.versaspa.com for details on the booth or stop into any salon.
Q: Do you have leg only equipment?
A: No, Ashley Lynn's does not offer “leg only” equipment. But we do suggest that customers who have trouble tanning their legs try our stand-up booths. It will help to even out the all over color (360 degree tan) as well as help with any pressure points and tan lines.
Q: How often are your lamps changed?
A: We change the lamps in our beds halfway through their lifetime. So they are ALWAYS changed before they are even close to their end. This means you will get deep dark sexy tan every time!
Q: What is the difference in the beds/booths that you offer? What do the level’s mean?
A: We offer several different pieces of equipment. A level two will give you two times the results as an entry level piece of equipment. Level threes are going to tan you three times faster than a entry level piece of equipment. The higher level equipment has more UVA vs. UVB rays so you are less likely to burn, plus see the results a lot faster!

Q: How old do you have to be to tan?
A: To tan, you must be at least 14 years old. If you are 14 or 15, you will also need a parent/guardian to come in with you for the first time to sign a consent form.
Q: How long do I have to wait between tans? If I tan at 8:00 pm, can I tan again the next day at noon?
A: We allow you to tan once a day, however we do suggest that you try and wait 24 hours in between sessions to avoid overexposure.
Q: I have heard that tanning is bad for you and could cause skin cancer. Is this true?
A: There are a lot of positive effects from tanning and from UV light. When used in moderation, there are lots of good things that come from tanning and from the Vitamin D that is produced while tanning. Some of these benefits include that it helps to prevent breast, colon, and prostate cancers, it helps with “Seasonal Affective Disorder” (AKA “Winter Blues), helps with fibromyalgia and arthritis. Please remember to TAN SMART – and never sunburn! For more information, please see the “Vitamin D” page.
Q: How does my skin tan?
A: When the UV rays penetrate the first layer of skin, they come into contact with special skin cells called melanocytes. Those melanocytes, when activated, produced melanin. The melanin rises to the surface of the skin and combines with oxygen. This is how you get the golden brown color of a tan.
Q: What are the hours of operation?
A: Some of the locations offer different hours than others. Please refer to the “Locations” section for specific hours of each location.
Q: Why do I have to bring my eyewear when I tan? Sometimes I don’t even use it?
A: Not using eyewear for an extended period of time can damage your vision or cause disorders of the eye. We just want to make sure that everyone has the proper precautions made available to them. We do offer eyewear for you to purchase in the Ashley Lynn's salons and they are very affordable.
