There are two types of people in this world...those who fake tan and those who don’t. Those who don’t are considered the lucky ones. They’ll never understand the struggle of timing a fresh spray tan between two events. Nor will they know why Thursday night catch ups are off the cards. And they certainly won’t know the battle of removing last week’s tan, scrubbing your body so red raw that you’re worried you’ve hit tissue.
A spray tan is similar to a Tinder date. It can be the best confidence-boosting decision you make all week, or it can go horribly wrong. We don’t want it to be the latter so have rounded up five of the best spray tan spots on the Gold Coast.
Located in Mermaid Beach, Bella Bronze offers spray tans from their cute salon. Their violet-based solution is developed and manufactured in Australia so you know it’s created by people who know their (fake) tans. You can either book an instant glow at their House of Beauty or purchase their products and apply at home.
Gold Coast Tans
