Since a professional is applying the solution, you don't have to worry about tan lines or the spotty look that can happen with self-tanners. These five salons sprinkled throughout the Atlanta metro will have you bronze and glowing in no time.

Golden Haute Spray tans are some of the many services that the by-appointment Ne Plus Ultra Salon Boutique offers. Their airbrushed tan will typically last seven to 10 days, provided you care for skin properly after the tan is applied. The salon staff recommends that you shave and exfoliate before your session and refrain from showering for 8-12 hours so the color has time to fully develop. Golden Haute will work around the state of dress or undress that you feel comfortable with, so you can get that perfectly airbrushed tan without feeling awkward about it.
