Get your winter glow on with the best spray tan purveyors in town

If you’re looking for a bit of a boost as the weather cools down (and are lamenting the inevitable loss of your summer glow) a spray tan can do wonders for feeling your best.

And in order to ensure the best results (after all, no one likes streaky skin), it’s important to know where to go, which is why we’ve done the research for you. Without further ado, here’s where to get the best spray tan in Auckland. 

Spring Spa Ponsonby & St Heliers
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. Using an organic tan that can be adjusted for all skin types and shades, there is the option for a six-hour development time or a fast-developing, two-hour tan — whichever suits your needs.

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. 

Esperanza Remuera 
Offering a completely individualised experience, Remuera salon Esperanza is your one-stop shop for a flawless tan. With a variety of bases on offer, owner Hope Macdonald, who has been specialising in spray tanning for nearly 10 years, will tailor the tan to your skin tone and type delivering a natural, sun-kissed glow every time. 

Your Tan Parnell
Started by Paula Hopkins with the ethos of helping others feel better to counter her own struggles with breast cancer, Parnell’s Your Tan is fast making a name for itself, with a considered (and beautiful) approach to tanning that leaves you positively glowing. With happy hour offerings and a mobile service, this is a number you’ll want on speed dial.

White Spa Herne Bay
With a variety of options including half or full-body, White Spa is well-known for its therapists’ expertise when it comes to tanning and promises a streak-free, natural-looking tan with no orange tinge and no residual odour.

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.

Haven Skin Spa Takapuna & Mt Eden
Haven’s therapists are renowned for their know-how when it comes to beauty treatments, and their tanning service is no different, with botanical solutions made using certified organic ingredients (and no animal testing). Free from alcohol, perfumes or parabens, Haven’s spray tan has a quick two-or-four-hour developing time and leaves a beautifully natural finish.

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. Frequented as much by models pre-Fashion-Week, as it is by beauty and wellness aficionados, Epsom Spray Tan’s natural products and expert application have kept it ahead of the game for years.

Bare Waxing Grey Lynn
Offering a failsafe spray tan that develops in two-to-four hours and can be as subtle or as dark as you want (with a choice of either Moroccan Tan or Bondi Sands), the lovely beauty experts at Bare Waxing Grey Lynn know how to deliver the kinds of results that will have you going back again and again.
