Beautiful glow! – I went to Brazil Bronze for a spray tan the Wednesday before my Sunday wedding after receiving a coupon through Gilt City. The tan was perfect! The woman who sprayed me was professional, knowledgeable and made me feel comfortable in my birthday suit (it was my first time receiving a spray tan)! The result was a healthy glow (not orange at all!) that faded to a beautiful shade by the time I was married 5 days later. I will definitely be back coupon or no coupon!
Photos – Hopefully no one I know is reading this because I am about to admit I bought a Groupon for a Boudoir photography session at Brazil Bronze Glow Bar - and used it!
One thing to note - the session was NOT held at their 580 Broadway but at studios in Chelsea where Sally also teaches a class.
My boyfriend's birthday was coming up & I thought... well, you know what I thought. I looked at the pictures they posted on the website, and then came up with a more "sporty" idea.
Sally was there when I got there & showed me & another girl a book of sample photos - she was totally supportive & encouraging, and said that it was a good idea to at least pick some images we liked so that we had a good idea of where to start. She also gave us glasses of champagne :-)
Since Sally had a class to teach, Rosemarie was the one running the show. I took out my soccer ball & gear & cute little soccer shirt cut up... Rosemarie & Roberto (the photographer - her husband - so you feel totally comfortable - and Roberto was a complete professional) were totally psyched & supportive of my idea. Rosemarie was even getting down on the floor with me to help me come up with poses.
So for the pics.... I got to choose two out of the 200 (included in my package) or so Roberto take. Were they all fabulous? Absolutely not. But believe you me - there were tons to choose from where I wasn't complaining about my stomach or thighs or lack of a smile. In the end, I had to have Rosemarie help me narrow them down because I couldn't choose. Note that you can also buy the digital file which the girl before me did. But I really didn't need a bunch of sexy pics of me - 2 was more than enough. Anyway, my bf loved them - one was a bit more conservative from the waist up, and the other was an incredibly tasteful "almost nude" with the soccer ball. OK, that sounds weird - but it was sexy yet quirky & fun.
That may be more info than you ever wanted to know... but hopefully it gives you a sense of it. And that I loved the experience.... and the result. Thank you Sally, but especially thank you Rosemarie & Roberto for putting up with my nervousness & awkwardness & indecision - you definitely made the experience for me.
Note - if you are looking for an expensive, velvet lined, upscale experience - this might not be for you as the studio is pretty bare bones. But I didn't feel at all uncomfortable in the setting. Also, not alot of backgrounds or props - so bring your own if there's something in particular you want (or ask if they have it before you go).
terrible tan, streaks and patches – I have gone here a few times thinking I had been on an "off" day. Sadly, my tan always comes out looking streaky and uneven. It came off on all my clothes for the next week, and I looked like I had a skin disease. Honestly, it was so bad I should have demanded my money back. Go at your own risk! Oh and reviewers who say it doesn't smell are kidding themselves...like all self tanners, it reeks.
brazil bronze baby! – best tan i ever had, proffesional, nice,specialists, good customer service, great location. the spray doesnt smell at all! i was able to go out the same night without taking a shower! (they tell you to wait 8-12 hours to take a shower after you get sprayed) they offer pckgs really good deals, i got one! going back this coming weekend!
best tan in nyc – all i have to say is that i read about brazil bronze in allure. then i went on their website and read about all the other major magazine reviews. i made an app and went. they have the best product in spraytanning hands down. i couldnt belive how natural and beautiful the tan looked. very nice customer service, good location, very cozy salon. well, it was just what i expected- great!
happy! – i am so happy i listened to my friend and went there! i`m really ghostly white and i was scared it wouldnt look good on me! i `ve done the booth and i came out looking like carrothead!! but wow what a difference! the woman that sprayed me was very nice and she made me feel very comfortable- i was so nervous, but she was really sweet. it was great- couple of minutes and i had a tan! and it didnt smell or look orange! they have articles about brazil bronze from allure, vogue, etc on the walls in changing rooms. it`s very impressive! my friend was right this thing is addictive! i am going on monday to get sprayed again!
best tan i ever got! – great location, very friendly atmosphere, great spray tan specialists, fast . was really suprised how natural and how good my tan looked, it was my first time spray taning. took about 10 minutes to get sprayed and i left with a bzonzed glow! deff going back there!!!
what happened?? – I used to be a HUGE fan of this spot. They perfected the tan so the shade complemented your skin. It was fast, easy and well done. However, my last 2 visits were disasters, I would've been better off doing it at home. The person seemed to have no idea what she was doing and it took forever, only to be weirdly patchy (so much so that it looked like I had a skin disease or something). I did give them a second change after a streaky session but the second time was worse than the first. It's actually sort of outrageous that they are still in business.
i love my tan! i have very very pale skin, so i was worried it wouldn`t look good, but i got sprayed and i`ve never looked so taned and bronzed ever! it`s so fast and it`s not dangerous for health! very nice people, nice salon, good location. but moust of all i loved my tan!!
123- and i`m glowing !!! – Really , really great place to get a beautiful tan in like 10 minutes!!! The location is really cool, i did my summer shopping after i got sprayed!! Very cozy atmosphere, nice specialists. Owsome color, doesn`t smell, took me 5 min to dry and i was good to go! Got a package deal! Deff, try them if your looking for a great tan!!
