5 star service – This place is great, I actually found them on lifebooker and decided to try them out after reading their great reviews. I usually go to Faux Glow but after trying Brazil Bronze I will never go back to them, Brazil Bronze is cheaper and so much better. I echo the previous comments about them being extremely busy and making appointments well in advance, but thats a small price to pay for the great quality service that they provide.
Worth the wait – I was very surprised when I called in to schedule an appointment and they told me that they were fully booked for the next week, I'm from LA and I got tanned every week there and I never had trouble scheduling appointments. I eventually booked an appointment a few weeks ahead of time, when I arrived at the salon I immediately noticed that it was very busy ( a good sign) The girls were all very sweet and I really liked the salon because it definitely has a Californian vibe going on, especially from the technicians, which is great because found a lot of tanning places in New York to be very snooty. The tan itself was incredible, possible the best I have ever had. I have made sure to book a standing appointment for the summer so that I don't have issues booking appointments in the future. I highly recommend this place, very natural results, no smell and a great staff :)
Very Natural and No smell!!! – The salon itself is beautiful, very different to the usual tanning places. The staff are very professional and friendly. Just by looking at all the press on their walls I knew that it was going to be great but it was even better than I expected. I have been getting spray tanned for a long time, so I actually got used to the self tanner smell (my boyfriend still hated it though) I was so surprised to see that there is no smell!! It is so natural that even my boyfriend didn't notice that I had been sprayed. I also listened to the technician and went a little lighter than usual and that was amazing because the fading was very natural, not at all blotchy like before. I think that I will be doing it weekly now because its just so good and the price is very reasonable too.
Brazil Beautiful – I LOVE Brazil Bronze, they really do live up to the name. I made use of their services before my big trip to Brazil. I did the Brazilian wax, Spray tan as well as the Lash extensions. Everything was great, the lashes were very time consuming but the result was very worth it, four weeks later and my lashes still look fabulous!!! As for the tan, I went back as soon as I got back from Brazil to maintain the tan that I got while I was there and I think that I will just go back on a weekly basis, it looks so natural people just think that its my natural color. Dont be scared to ask a lot of questions about the tan, there are a lot of helpful hints they they told me about that really make a big difference.
Picture Perfect! – I went there to get my tan done for my wedding, the technician advised me to do a 'light tan' on the body and a 'healthy glow' on the face, I was very nervous since it was for the wedding but it looked amazing! It was so natural both in person and in pictures. Thank You Brazil Bronze for helping me look amazing for the wedding!!!
Perfect all round!! – I have been hooked on this place for a long time because it is the only natural looking spray tan that I have ever had (and trust me, I've had a couple) and also because everyone there is very friendly and sweet. I hate going to tanning places because the girls who work there usually act like catty cheerleaders... not here, all the girls are very professional and sweet.
Even though it was the tan that got me started on this place, I have tried some of their other services and they have been great too, I highly recommend the lash extensions, no more mascara!!! And as with the tanning, the lady who does the lash extensions is great!!
My New Obsession! – I got my first spray tan there a little while ago and LOVED it... now I'm going every week because I just cant get enough!!
I used to be one of those people who was always out in the sun and always tanned but after a scare at my dermatologists office I just decided that tanning was not worth the risk, which is very sad considering that I'm naturally super pale and I look unhealthy and sick with no color.
I love the fact that the color looks so natural, not orange AT ALL!!! I also love that if you do the right color for your skin tone it fades out really well... also... (wait for it)... NO SMELL!!!
This salon is really amazing, it just has such a good vibe to it, everyone is really friendly and happy. My only two pieces of advice would be to make your appointments well ahead of time because they are really busy, and second, listen to what the technician has to say, they really are experts at this and if you want the tan to look good and fade well, they know best!
Lost Inches – I went into Brazil Bronze Glow Bar a couple weeks ago to try out one of their detoxifying body wraps.. it was awesome! I literally lost inches around my wait. I'm definitely going to go back. Did you know that you can get one session for just $49 with buywithmeNYC right now? That's a $60 value! Check out the deal here: htp://bit.ly/9XnptW
Amazing new treatment! – I usually come for tanning but I noticed the last time that they were doing detoxifying body wraps and I had to try them. It was amazing, my skin felt awesome after and I even noticed some weight loss. It was so great, I'll definitely be going back for another one. What's even better is that I found a deal on buywithme for it and you can get half priced treatments! Here is the link: bit.ly/9XnptW Try it, its amazing!
AMAZING AMAZING AMAZING!!!!! – Best tan ever!!!
I have never really been a fan of the fake tanners because, lets face it, nothing can ever compare to a real tan. Or so I thought...
I had a huge event to go to and knowing that I would not have enough time to prepare by going to the tanning beds, I decided to find the best spray tanning place instead. I looked through a few magazines & did a little research online, I found Brazil Bronze and figured that as far as fake tanners go, they would probably be the best so I made my appointment.
On arrival, the first thing that surprised me was that there were no actual tanning beds (all spray tans that I had received in the past were in conventional tanning salons, beds and all) the second was that the salon had more of a feel of a high-end boutique as opposed to a tanning salon.
The girl who greeted me was very friendly, as were the rest of the staff, and I felt very comfortable. I was asked to fill out the forms and told that if I had any questions, I should just ask. I wasn't too sure about the color because I wanted a dark shade but I still wanted it to look real (not orange) so my technician suggested the Light/Medium, which she said would look like I just got back from a week in Miami.
The application seemed similar to what I had done before but it somehow seemed much faster but also more precise, before I knew it I was tanned and ready to step into the drying room which is where I saw all of their press, wow, I really did find the BEST place...
On my way home I did feel a little sticky, which I know was normal, and overall I just felt really really happy with the experience. Everyone was so friendly and helpful. It wasn't until the rinse off shower the next morning that the real shock came.... it looked BETTER than a real tan!! A few days later and the fade is even, no splotching and best of all NO SMELL!!!!!!
Finally I can actually say goodbye to tanning beds!!!!!!!!
