Beach St Tanning salon is a luxe beauty hub based in the heart of Paddington. It’s my go-salon, not just because of the state-of-the-art services and certified organic products. It’s run by Lauren Capelin, co-founder of popular tanning brand Sunescape & Giuliana Benedet. They share over 20 years experience of 5-star spray tans between them. With the stunningly chic interior designed by none other than TV designer Shaynna Blaze, it’s THE place for tanning aficionado’s with celebs, bloggers and media all flocking to this new tanning mecca.
Spray Tanning Just Got Better
I’ve had a few visits here now and am in love with the entire experience. On arrival you’re greeted with a warm smile and a glass of bubbly (or mimosa if it’ss before 12!). While the tan technicians conduct a personal consultation to see what’s right for you. This includes options safe for breastfeeding, expert colour matching and toning to skin types in order to achieve desired results (natural-looking, super bronzed, beach babe).
Attention To Detail
I especially like their attention to detail, every corner of the place is spotless. There is Micellar water with cotton wool and wipes to remove makeup, deodorant and a wonderful place to put your jewelry. During the tan, you are given a disposable cap and G-string to wear if you like and the lovely ladies meticulously spray you down with their high-tech guns.
They do an amazing job of reaching tricky places and protecting dryer areas like your elbows, heels and between your fingers. They brush excess tan off and use a special finishing coat for a perfect finish every time. When you are in their gorgeous golden booth you really feel like a rockstar with the huge golden fan which sucks the excess tan away.
Tanning takes less than 30 minutes and is long-lasting thanks to the added layers of primer and finisher – a week later and I’m still glowing. I always feel great after a tan, the golden tone makes everything else look brighter, hair, eyes, smile :). They also have a brow bar there for any touch ups you may need for a super polished finish.
Did I Mention The VIP deck?
Finally, I have to mention their gorgeous VIP deck which I’ve used for a bridal party. Privately situated up on the mezzanine level, it’s an awesome experience complete with champagne and nibbles for those occasions. It’s really the only way a special tan should be done, so grab your girlfriends and get glowing at Beach St Tanning Salon.
