Spring Spa Ponsonby
Spring is renowned for beauty services across the board from facials to massage, mani-pedis and more, and its tanning services are just as high-quality.

Society Grey Lynn
Grey Lynn hair and beauty salon Society does a busy trade in tans, and for good reason — the tanner its therapists use is not orange at all, and is made with ethically-sourced, cruelty-free and organic ingredients. Plus, the addition of argan oil leaves the skin feeling hydrated and smooth.

Tan in the City Remuera, Ponsonby & mobile
This popular spot focuses on delivering one thing and one thing only — the perfect tan. It’s for this reason that Tan in the City has become a go-to for anything from a sun-kissed glow to a deep holiday tan. And, if you can’t make it into the salon, one of the therapists can bring its mobile service to you.

Epsom Spray Tan Epsom
Renowned across the city for providing some of the best, streak-free spray tans at affordable prices, Epsom Spray Tan is a household name for those in the know.
