Want a bronze glow without spending hours under the sun? Opt for a spray tan, the quicker and healthier alternative! Here we explore three salons where you can get that bronze glow without basking in the sun.
Skip the sun and head to homegrown beauty spot Pink Parlour, which has been in the tanning business since 2005. Whether you’re planning to get beach-ready for an island vacay, or you want to get glowing for your wedding, Pink Parlour’s spray tan technology promises a fab and streak-free glow in no time. A fast and hassle-free option is the Spray Tan Rapid ($60), which lasts for five to 10 days. It takes just 20 minutes, and then you can choose to leave on the tanner for an instant bronze, or wash it off after two hours and wait for the colour to fully develop in five hours.
Oh, and did you know? The spray tans offered here are paraben-free with natural ingredients like aloe vera to hydrate and nourish the skin. They’re well-loved by body builders for their competitions, too. Plus, there are multiple outlets across the island!
Psst… Pink Parlour’s hair removal treatments are also popular amongst first-timers.

Lunchtime spray tans in the CBD? Yes, please! This gorgeous Shenton Way beauty salon offers luxurious tanning solutions from Brazil Bronze New York, an award-winning brand that’s suitable for sensitive skin. The salon uses the highest quality Eco-Cert-approved DHA (dihydroxyacetone) as well as organic and natural ingredients in its products, with high-performing, anti-ageing ingredients like resveratrol, jojoba oil, Vitamin C, Vitamin D and hyaluronic acid. It’s little wonder the fragrance- and cruelty-free formula was named by Vogue magazine as “The Perfect Tan”! You can look forward to an even bronze glow without any skin dryness.
Each tan is customised to suit your skin’s natural shade. For a light to medium tan result, opt for the Brazil Bronze Sun Kissed Glow ($65). There’s also a deeper shade option, the Brazil Bronze Deep Tan ($65), for serious tan seekers.
“To maximise the life of your spray tan, exfoliate and moisturise your skin the day before your appointment. Then, make sure to moisturise well every day post-treatment.”
