“5 Star Reviews For Spray Tans in Glasgow”

Change your mind about spray tanning forever at Tropicoco’s modern day tanning salon in Glasgow city centre.
We know how great a spray tan makes us feel on a night out and for some of us, we couldn’t go a week without it. That’s why we specialise in spray tans, because we understand just how important it is to have a natural, even glow.
Tropicoco provides a quick and comfortable bronzing session in our spray tan studio in Glasgow’s City Centre. Situated in a comfortable studio at St. Enoch’s square Glasgow city centre, spray tanning has never been more convenient.

“Glasgow’s Specialists in Spray Tanning”

With a professional spray tan therapist applying a premium quality solution, there is no need to fear. Our award winning spray tan solutions at our Glasgow salon achieve a golden bronzed glow that lasts over a week. One of our professional spray tan therapists will apply your tan with an airbrush gun, ensuring a quick and even coverage.

While you are getting your  spray tan applied by a therapist, our tanning booth’s air flow system will dry you instantly  and extract excess solution out of  the air. This means you wont be breathing in excess spray tan solution and you can dress as soon as your treatment is over.

Our spray tan solution has golden brown hues, and guarantees a streak free, ‘non-orange’ tan every time! Tans in light, medium, dark and extra dark are available in our Glasgow salon and your choice of colour will be discussed before your treatment begins.

Benefits of a Spray Tan

Sunless tanning achieves tanned skin of any shade without the use of harmful sunbeds. There are so many sunbed users in Glasgow, but some users are unaware that skin cancer cases in Scotland have increased by more than 30% in the past decade. The NHS states that to cut your chances of getting melanoma, you should reduce your exposure to the sun and sunbeds.

Not all products used in salons have skin nourishing ingredients, but ours is 100% organic with Vitamins A, B5 and E too. Our solution has no harmful parabens, alcohol or oils which make your skin dry which results in a patchy tan that fades badly.

Bronzed skin hides imperfections such as cellulite and bruises. It also contours the face and body giving the illusion of a more toned, slimmer physique as well as making your eyes and teeth appear brighter.

What shade should I get?

Glasgow girls love their tans, so before any bronzing session your therapist will ask you what look you want to achieve. At Tropicoco you can have the choice of light, medium, dark and extra dark shades, but it’s always better to go for a lighter option rather than darker if you are hesitant to pick a colour.

If you have fair skin, light and medium shades are best. If you have olive skin, light, medium or dark are all good options for your colouring. If you are unsure, take a look at our gallery for help.

If you are planning to have a tan applied before your wedding, we always recommend booking a trial tan session at our conveniently located tans salon in Glasgow city centre, but make sure to only use light or medium shades.

Your therapist will be able to give you advice on which shade is appropriate for you based on your skin tone and the event that you are attending. For example, when it comes to tanning for weddings, holidays and other day time events, light to medium shades are best if you aren’t used to dark colours.

Dark shades are more appropriate for people who are used to dark shades or if they are a stage entertainer, or are going to a night time event.

What happens when I arrive for my appointment?

Once you’ve arrived at our Glasgow salon, you’ll be taken into our studio and your therapist will start your consultation. You’ll be asked if you have carried out the proper skin preparation (See below), if your skin has any dry areas and what shade you wish to achieve.

Your therapist will leave the room and allow you to change in private. A dressing gown and protection for your feet and hair will be provided and once you have put them on your therapist will come into the room.

Standing in the drying booth your therapist will tell you what positions to go into so the tan hits every area of your body. You will then stand in the booth for a few minutes and your tan will be dry enough so you can put your clothes back on comfortably and hit Glasgow’s shops without feeling sticky!

What do You wear for Spray tans?

You can wear whatever you feel comfortable in, Whether that be with pants or bra on or off. Some of our clients feel more comfortable with shorts on or a bikini, which is completely fine. If you don’t like the thought of tan lines, thongs or undressing completely is advised.
