Poor service, not hygenic, no uv protection for eyes – I don't think the other reviewers went to the same salon. I was appalled by the service and the cleanliness of this tanning salon. I would reccommend another salon, Hollywood Tans on Colorado Blvd in Pasadena is much better. First I was put off by the employee working; she looked like she was the babysitter who just happened to be subbing that night; she didn't know anything about the equipment and wasn't at all interested in helping me. That I could forgive as just one bad apple, but things only got worse. I was there for a MagicTan (instant spray tan); so she led me back to the room where the booth was. The room was not nice at all; it looked like a large supply closet with poor lighting and a beat up chair and two threadbare towels and nowhere to hang one's clothes. Luckily, there was a poster on the wall explaining how the unit works, which was necessary since the girl who worked there could hardly explain it and was basically reading the poster to me. After she left I finished reading the poster, which said I should put on the disposable hair net and "winkies" (eye protection) but they had not left me with any eye protection. I went back out to the desk to ask for them and she looked at me like she had never been asked about them before. And then she said that nobody ever uses them, they "just shut their eyes". She proceeded to dig through a drawer and dug out an old, ratty pair of the old fashioned eye glasses with the elastic headband on it knotted and broken. This is where I nearly walked out but had already paid and was in a hurry. I have been to other tanning salons and I can say for certain that protecting your eyes is very important and it is upsetting that they clearly had no regard for their client's safety. After that I went back inside and got in the booth, which was dirty with fingerprints and footprints inside-not at all clean. A stark contrast to other salons I have been to. Needless to say, I would not go back, despite getting good results.
Best tanning salon in the area – they have the newest tanning equipment unlike many other tanning salon in the area. Everyroom is cooled with air conditioner, and free mint chocolate is servered in everyroom. The Matrix high pressure bed is just stunning, i see the result in just one tan.
Editorial Review – Tanning beds and Mystic spray tans are available along with a weight-loss body wrap; monthly packages are available.
Very clean and modern, staff takes pride in the place. – I love this place! Great selection of beds, I tried the Matrix, and got lots of compliments on my great looking "tan." It's modern, clean, and the staff is very friendly and helpful. They've got soft drinks and a nice selection of after tan products too. Closer for me than driving all the way up to Pasadena.
