Great service – :) I have tanning at perfect tan for 5 years now, and I never had a problem with service. Cute staff A+
Editorial Review by Citysearch Staff – Modern facility sports 19 tanning beds and booths; also offers popular Mystic Tan UV-free spray tanning system.
Great natural looking Mystic Tan – I go to Perfect Tan every year for the spray tan. It comes out looking really good and very natural. You have a choice of whether or not to have the bronzer applied. Using the bronzer does give you a slightly orange cast, but you get darker quicker. I've been going for the past five years, and have been very pleased with the cleanliness, the courtesy of the staff and the attractiveness of the shop in general. The only downside is that it's not the easiest area in which to find a parking space.
Get the "Perfect Tan" at Perfect tan – I've never heard of getting an unlimited tanning package for just $18.95. I always do a two month package, and it doesn't damage my wallet. Located just across the street from the Babcock St. T-stop on the B line it is very easy to get to. Everytime I walk in to the salon I'm immediately greeted with a smile and seen to as fast as possible. From the day I started tanning here I knew it was a great place. The owners are present much of the time and talk to you as if they've known you forever. The staff is very knowledgeable and are always willing to help you out with choosing the right tanning bed or even the right lotion. The facility is very clean and the beds are always cleaned twice before each use. The salon just recently upgraded many of their beds, and they always maintain the bulbs as needed. If you haven't been you must go. Try it once and you'll be hooked on the Perfect Tan.
A great tan at a low price! – As a college student it can be hard to afford a small luxury such as tanning in an expensive city like Boston, however, Perfect Tan has made it possible for college students to get a great tan at low costs. I have been tanning for over 4 years now and have encountered salons who have sky high prices and terrible beds. When I first came to Perfect Tan, I had no idea what to expect but it quickly became my top choice for tanning salons. Not only do they have great prices but they also change their bulbs very often. This I have learned is very unusual. When tanning at salons where I am from I have always noticed that it would take me a very long time to build a tan and I always thought it was just because of my skin type. Turns out it is because some salons wait forever to change their bulbs. Perfect Tan does not. They are always changing the bullbs in the beds to make sure their customers get the best tan possible. I was surprised when I first started tanning at Perfect Tan and I noticed color almost immediatly. Within two weeks I was significantly darker than I had ever expected. I am very happy with the results I have seen from tanning at Perfect Tan and would highly recommend this salon to everyone in the Boston area.
all new equipment – When I returned from my christmas vacation I was impressed to find that all the equipment was new. I've been going to Perfect Tan for about a year and enjoying their monthly rate, $19.00, which is the lowest I've found considering all the hiden fees at other places. The environment is relaxed and happy, the girls are friendly and smart, and the whole salon is clean and bright. This is the only place that I've gone in Boston where I always get results on my first visit. When I decided to do an airbrush tan for new year's I was a bit nervous but the staff was very helpful when answering my questions, and the girl that sprayed me, made me feel comfortable and relaxed. Not to mention the results were so natural, I think I'm addicted... Keep up the good work Perfect Tan, I'm hooked.
There are better places – Tanning salon girls are known to be pretty rude, so you can expect the girls working here to be rude. Maybe that's an understatement...
Perfect Tan has several types of beds and tanning methods, but the place is old. Individual sessions are more expensive than other places and the beds are old and rusted. Music is provided by a set of headphones, old school.
You can find better places to go for same crappy service.
Best tanning service and value in town. – I have been a customer of Perfect tan for a number of years, having discovered them one day when I was on my way to a vacation in Florida in the dead of winter, and had my flight cancelled due to a blizzard at the last minute. They were terrific when I was in the worst possible mood. Over the years I have been inpressed by the steady upgrading of equipment, and their cutting edge spray tanning services. They have Mystic Tanning with a number of different settings and their airbrush tanning is absolutely terrific. (Particularly Francie.) These folks are efficient, on time, and very creative in thier packages, and service quality, particularly to and for regulars. In a service business that can be sketcthy, these guys are the best. Good equipment, good attitude, good value and prices, clean facility, and nice people. . . . and above all, The Perfect Tan!!!!!!
airbrush tan – Worst spraytan I've ever had! I was referred here through a few websites like this one. I made an appointment and there machine was broken. I received no call to tell me of this and I traveled 20 mins out of my way. Not even a sorry! I made another appointment and I came out orange and they missed the inside of my legs and the bottoms of my feet were black.
Loyal Customer – I have been going to Perfect Tan for years. The flexibility of hours open is great. I also like the variety of tanning packages available, both for sunless tanning and tanning beds. The staff is very efficient, so even during peak times the wait is never long. Also, with the flexibility to upgrade your tan, I have never had to wait more than 5 minutes. I have always been pleased with my experience at Perfect Tan.
