I first heard about them from a coworker, who suggested the airbrush tan because she had two good experiences with them. I was on vacation this past week and thought it'd be a safer way to have some color as I typically burn in tanning beds. I scheduled my appointment for 6pm last Monday. I arrived 10 minutes early, and stood waiting for someone to acknowledge my presence. Instead the owner was busy flirting with the 20-something in line ahead of me, and trying to set him up with the woman who came in after me. They finally asked me to have a seat and said they'd be right with me. At about 6:15 my appointment started. And by that I mean the owner took me on a "grand tour" of her salon. Explaining that they just went through a bad fire (which is awful), but they're trying to put it back together. She then showed me all of these hoses she uses (for what I don't know) and started making inappropriate jokes about the size, length, girth, etc of EACH ONE. I can appreciate a good dirty joke, but not from a stranger who is supposed to be guiding me through my very first spray tan experience. We finally got to the room I was going to be using. After helping her set up some sheer curtains in the doorway so I could disrobe, she left to get her equipment and I stood there waiting. At around 6:30 or so she apologized for how long it was taking and asked if I was pressed for time. I tried to politely say it was okay but told her I needed to be done by 7. I had a few questions because it was my first time and I feel like she totally ignored me. She actually said "I've been doing this for 13 years you don't have to worry." For one, I was just recovering from a sunburn a week prior, so I had some uneven skin and I wanted to make sure it wasn't going to look weird. When I tried to ask her about it she said "don't worry, I know what I'm doing." Sure enough, all of the areas I was concerned about turned out splotchy and a lot darker than the rest of me. Also, the only thing she said not to do was shower or sweat for 12 hours. I successfully avoided both of those things but the second I started to apply sunscreen the spray tan started to smear. This might be a typical thing that happens with spray tans but let me just state again that it was my first experience and she explained NONE of this to me. After I dried off in front of a couple floor fans, I went to get dressed. Only to find she hadn't grabbed my shoes. And she was in the spray tan room with another customer by the time I needed them. I asked the girl up front about it and she laughed and said she'd get them. After I paid I had to remind this girl again that I needed my shoes. Now I'm out $50. My tan looked good for about 12 hours and after that it got splotchy and uneven. And the tan on my legs lasted maybe 2 days before my pasty white showed through again. I won't be back.
Hours of Operation? – I love Studio Tan! However, putting the hours of operation up on the website would be extremely helpful! I have very limited time to come in and tan, so being able to look up the hours would be, like I said, Helpful!
Thanks for the feed back and making us aware of this. We are taking steps to make sure our hours are easy to find on the site and on places like Google maps. By getting feedback by customers we can become better. Thank You.
New and Improved – I tanned at Studio Tan back in 2009 and when I returned I was more than impressed. They have done a great job of redecorating and improving the salon! I recommend this get away to anyone. The spray tanning is something I was never interested in but after jill sprayed me I can not understand why I did it sooner. It is a very welcoming atmosphere and I felt right at home. There beds have never left me disippointed even under the basic package which is also a great price!!

Studio Tan helps reduce my stress:) – Studio Tans prices are affordable & you get expert personalized service. I drive from Eden Praire, where we have a tanning salon on every corner. I Love the custom Airbrush/SPAY Tanning!! But before go have it done- EXFOLIATE, EXFOLIATE & after the more you MOISTURIZE, the longer it'll last and the more even it'll fade. They keep the machines well maintained & post change-outs on bulbs. My new favorite is the Rejuvasun Spa Bed.
