BRIDES Northern California: San Francisco Spray Tan Salons for a Perfect Wedding Day Glow

California, Hair & Beauty, Local

Nothing looks better with a white wedding dress than a glowy, sun-kissed tan. But sun damage is real, so laying out under the harsh UV rays or hitting the tanning is not an option, which is why sunless spray tanning is the way to go. Whether you're going for a natural-looking faux glow or a deep just-landed-from-Cabo bronze, these San Francisco spray tan salons will leave you looking absolutely radiant and ready to walk down the aisle.

Brown Sugar Boutique
Brown Sugar Boutique has been in the airbrush tanning game since 2002, so it's safe to say they know their stuff. We love that their organic tanning solution is infused with awesome ingredients like aloe vera, vitamin E, and collagen amino acids. So not only will your skin get glowy, it'll feel super soft too. If you're really pressed for time (what bride-to-be isn't?), one of their airbrush artists can come to you.

Brown Bunz Tan
From the heated floors to the organic tanning solution, Brown Bunz Tan really goes out of its way to make your experience comfortable. For brides-to-be in a hurry, there's the quick tan option, which lets you rinse off as early as 30 minutes after your spray. You'll walk out looking like a beautiful bronze bombshell in no time — without the headache of having to wait to dry overnight.

The Social Beauty Co.
In addition to waxing, lash extensions, and makeup services, this girly pampering haven has a small — but impressive — spray tan menu offering three different shades. The California Girl is a natural glow, while the Expressway to Fiji and the Tanned Tahitian are a deeper bronze, and give the illusion that you just returned from an exotic beach vacation.

Organic Shimmer
What makes this spot special is its airbrush tanning solution that's made with all-natural, organic, and anti-aging ingredients. The combination of herbs, botanical plant extracts, vitamins, and amino acids make your skin look healthier and more youthful even after the tan has faded.

Tan Bella
Thanks to Tan Bella's fine mist spray tanning machine, a wedding-ready golden glow takes just 60 seconds. The faux tan can last up to a week so we suggest penciling it in a couple days before the big day to ensure your tan looks its best when you slip on your wedding dress.
