Looking around Miami, it may seem like everyone spends their days bronzing on the beach. This may be true for some, but the real secret is finding a quality spray tan for just as organic of a glow — minus all those harmful UV rays. Even with all of its natural sunlight, there are as many tanning salons as there are Starbucks on Miami's streets, but these five have been given a seal of approval by both experts and celebs. Here are our top spots for a quick, streak-free spray tan in Miami before your wedding.
Tack on a tanning session during the bachelorette party, bringing the airbrush experts straight to you. Forever Tan's streak-free process starts with European Brushing to remove dead skin cells so your tan looks smooth and stays longer. You'll be left with that sun-kissed golden glow that's guaranteed to last up to 10 days. Read real brides' reviews here!
Calling Solar Intoxication a tanning salon doesn't do it justice. The boutique is more than the run-of-the-mill variety scattered around South Beach. Equipment is all state-of-the-art, and this includes the full-body Versa Spa spray tanner. Step inside the open-air system and in just a few minutes you'll come out glowing and moisturized with the tan of your choice.
Elle Air Blow Dry + Makeup Bar
The chic blow dry bar in Surfside is also home to one of Miami's best spray tans. Pop in after hitting the shops at Bal Harbour or bring the bar to you. Hair and makeup artists can set up shop in your home or hotel, giving you and your bridesmaids the chance to try out wedding day looks while letting spray tans set in. Read real brides' reviews here!
Sobe Tan by Fabiola
Spray tanner to the stars, owner Fabiola has airbrushed everyone from Matt Damon to Paris Hilton and Kim Kardashian. Pop into the original South Beach salon or try the new Coral Gables locale for a five-minute (organic and paraben-free) turbo tan that will have you looking like you've been basking on South Beach for the past few months and leave you honeymoon-ready.
