Nice and clean, cheery staff, and your tanning minutes do not expire...ever. Can't be beat!
Taylor Jay's Tanning Salon is the best. Great service with a smile, and never any pressure. Just a relaxing time in wonderful beds. No monthly contracts. No expiration of minutes. This is the way I like it. Everything is clean and serviced. This is the only place I go. Two thumbs up.
Taylor Jays Tanning has moved!! We are kitty corner to our old location, still by the corner of 240th & 132nd Ave, in the 2-story Windermere building, next to the 76 Gas Station on 240th. The address is 13106 SE 240th Street, Ste. 202 Kent, WA 98031
GREAT PLACE!!!! – Best salon I have ever been in. Great bed, great service and the prices a great even after the additional washington mark up on service tax.
Excellent Salon with Friendly Staff – I have been to a lot of tanning salons over the years and Taylor Jays has always remained my favorite. They have a no pressure philosophy unlike many other salons in the area. I love being able to show up tan and not be bothered to by more tans or lotion. The salon is kept very clean and there is always fun stuff to look at in the lobby. The staff is very nice and friendly. I love Taylor Jays and recommend it to everyone.
Fabulous tanning salon! – I have been a customer of Taylor Jay's for years, it is by far the best tanning salon I've ever gone to. The salon is always clean, both lobby and rooms and the bathroom is spotless. The prices are good, there are always good specials being offered. And the best feature is the owner and staff. It is always a pleasure to go there, there is absolutely no pressure to buy at all. If you are going to tan and live in the area, I highly recommend this salon.
Loved Taylor Jays – Taylor Jays was a great place for me to tan when I lived in Washington. I am sooo sad now because I live in Texas and have yet to find a place like Taylor Jays! The staff is pleasant, beds are clean, manager is awesome and always willing to work with you to make a deal! Also, at other tanning salons I got rashesand had an experience where someone had worn hot lotion before me and obviously the bed wasnt clean and ended up burning bad.. At Taylor Jays I have NEVER had any of that happen... seeing as I watched them clean my bed before I tanned! I would tan here again If I am ever in Washington and YOU should too! :)
Tanning – the Salon is clean, the girls are wonderful, in a convenient easy access location. the prices are right along with the other salons, the lotions are pricy, I bought a bottle there for $78 and was told the owner doesn't mark them up, well I think they do when I as a indivudual could go online and purchase the very same product in the same size for only 28.95, yes it was the same as I bought it online to make sure it was the same. I wonder how often taylor jays changes there bulbs in the regular beds as they don't seem to be as hot as other salons. when i first started tanning there (almost a year ago) they were much hotter and gave you alot more color, the last several months i have noticed on each of the regular beds they just aren't what they used to be. I tan at another place in Puyallup in regular beds and there bulbs are amazing and the color you get in 1 tan compared to what I get at TJ's is night and day difference. I feel I have to tan more often at TJ's to get the same out of 1 tan at other places. change your bulbs CHER! I know you push your other beds but you need to maintain the regular one's too, alot of people use the regular beds so I know they need changed, I wonder if they have ever been changed in the year since I've been going. Like I said you don't even start to feel the heat until the last 2 minutes of a 20 minute tan. I would like to hear comments back from Taylor Jays when she has last changed her bulbs and post bulb changes like other tanning salons do. I've never seen a sign or heard at TJ's that hey we have new bulbs just so you know. I love everything else about TJ's everything it's wonderful there so please change your bulbs I don't want to have to take my business elsewhere. I asked 2night when i went to tan when was the last time the bulbs were changed in rooms 1 2 3 and 4 (regular beds) the girl said I don't really know if they have. WHAT!
Local Gem Stone! – I usually tan at chain salons for convenience because they are everywhere, but when one closed it's doors over night. I decided to try a smaller locally owned salon. Contrary to the below "customerexpert" review, my experience was and has been amazing! I've been tanning there for about a year now and plan to be a lifer! First off the girls always remember my name! Very personal! Secondly I saw color after my first visit in one of there facial tanning beds and I love the option of being able to turn off the facial lamps! I've also used there stand-up Diva bed and love the way it takes away the tan lines on my sides! Third they continue to help me with all my product selections and guarantee that if I do not like a product after just 2 or 3 uses that they will take it back and get me into another product....what? I've never had a tanning salon take back a product after it's been used if I don't like it...this makes it so easy to try new products! Also..on the opposite end of the below review...I come to Taylor Jay's about 2 to 3 times a week and I've heard 3 different radio stations played...one of my favorites in fact is 92.5!!!!! Last but not least this salon is extremely CLEAN! I constantly see the girls cleaning...and this may be beacuse unlike many other salons there is no TV for them to watch! I recommend Taylor Jay's to anyone that wants the complete tanning package, comfortable, color, clean and certified staff!
Spend your money elsewhere – I was attracted by the location and easy-going atmosphere. The staff are friendly and very helpful. However, after indoor tanning for more than 20 years, I was incredibly disappointed with the apparent lack of maintenance and misuse of tanning terminology.
Being a "burner" I have never started off my tanning season, particularly in what Taylor Jay's calls a "medium pressure bed" with the suggestion of going 12 minutes. That should have been my tip-off that the standards used at this salon were quite different from any other salon I've ever patronized. In fact, I usually start off on a conventional bed and for never more than 6 minutes max.
After three "medium pressure tans" for the recommended 12 minute time, I am left with pink cheeks and nothing else. My daughter also bought a package and usually turns dark brown immediately. After her second attempt going the full 20 minutes, there is absolutely no difference whatsoever.
When I questioned the staff regarding how often they test the bulbs and change them, I received the reply that "I don't know, I think we might have changed them last year." This is JULY and they changed them last year??!!!!
In addition to having to spend hours longer than you would anywhere else to get just a little color, they only play one music station -- country! Now I understand that some folks like country, but if this is a customer service organization, shouldn't they shake it up a bit once in a while? When I asked the staff if they could change the station once in a while, they told me that they were forbidden to change it.
You would think that if you have to spend hours at this place to get just a touch of color, they could at least put some music on that their CUSTOMERS liked.
Don't waste your time where you don't come first.
