I have been three times to Gorgeous Glo Spray Tanning Boutique and have had very good experiences. The color is very natural and that is what I am looking for since I have fair skin. I live between their two locations, and so on my first try I went to the Myers Park location and on my second and third I went to the Sharon Corners one. The MP location is small, intimate and easy to get in and out of which is great when you have just been spray tanned. The Sharon Corners location is much livelier, so it is more fun, but it is about double the size so not as intimate. The second time I went my 16 daughter went with me and she loved the energy at the Sharon Corners location. I think I like the Myers Park one better because of the lack of liveliness..there is peace going on there! Anyway, we liked both of them and I was happy that every day of the week at least one of their spots is open. This last time we went on a Sunday afternoon and Emily sprayed both of us. She did a good job of making both a 16 year old and a 44 year old feel comfortable.
I wanted to write because the staff at Gorgeous Glo has gone the extra mile for me a number of times. I am a lawyer and can't always be on time because of work demands. They have been nice to me when I have had to change appointments and one time even stayed past closing times so I could get my spray tan before going on vacation. I usually do get a spray tan before I go on my winter vacation (so I will look acceptable in a bathing suit!), and go more often during the summer. I am a semi-regular customer there so I can speak with assurance about their skill and their customer service.
I think they are the best in town. I recently went to another well known salon (a hair salon, which was probably my first mistake) and the spray tan was nowhere near as professional or as well done as the gals at Gorgeous Glo. I have been to their Providence Rd. location and their South Park location but i have not been to their new Lake Norman location. They really are the best and I have learned my lesson about going elsewhere. I also like that their customer service is so good and I really feel comfortable there.
I have very fair skin, so I don’t ever look tan (just occasionally sunburned). I’ve tried tanning lotions before, but they’ve always made me look orange, streaky, and/or blotchy. I was very skeptical when I tried out gorgeous glo for the first time, but the staff helped me feel comfortable. The customer service was awesome in responding to all my concerns beforehand. They walked me through the process and explained the steps to follow after the spray tan. They personalize the tan based on your skin color, so they went with the lighter amount of spray for me. I was amazed with the outcome! The tan looked so natural – I was afraid it would be obvious that I was spray tanned since I’m so fair skinned, but that was not the case. It also lasted for a longer amount of time than I expected. I will definitely be back anytime I need a natural looking tan.
I made an appointment at Gorgeous Glo for a spray tan in anticipation of an engagement party I am attending this weekend. While I would have preferred the Myers Park location, I was told that only SouthPark could accomodate me. When I arrived for my appointment, I was surprised to find a note on the door saying that the store was closed because of a power outage. While I understand that power outages are outside of everyone's control, I was preturbed that no one had bothered to afford me the courtesty of a phone call to cancel the appointment before I drove across town. When I called the Myers Park location, the woman who answered the phone (I believe it was the owner) was very rude and insisted that she had "called or texted" me. I triple checked my phone and the number that Gorgeous Glo had on file and no such call or text was ever made to my number. Instead of apologizing and admitting the mistake, the woman was condescending and told me i could come to the Myers Park location (where I had initially tried to book) "if I wanted." I declined to do business with Gorgeous Glo and recomend that others do the same...if the proprietor won't admit even a simple mistake and treat customers with courtesty, imagine what would transpire if something more serious went wrong. I will be spending my money at establishments that treat people respectfully...and encourage that others do so as well based on this incident and the myriad of other issues described below.
I have had a spray tan at this facility once. They actually did a really good job. The results were really even and natural looking. What I have an issue with is their complete lack of customer service. I showed up for my appointment today and was told that they wouldn't honor my Groupon since I had been there once previously. The staff even admitted that no where on the voucher did it say that the deal was for new customers only. When asked why they wouldn't honor it the front desk girl responded with "Well, we don't make any money off of those." That doesn't negate a contract! When I spoke with the Groupon representative they also confirmed that Gorgeous Glo had not told them that this was only for new customers and that they were in fact breaking the contract. Even though they did a fine job on my tan I won't ever go back here again.
I love Donna at Gorgeous Glo! I have been going to them since 2009 and I have always left there looking and feeling confident of the service I received, whether it was a Glo tan or a blowout or both. I have used them consistently for 4 years for life's bigger moments and they have shined with professionalism and expertise. I will not trust anyone other than Anne, Donna and the girls for these services. I will have to take them with me if I ever move from Charlotte:)
The tan here is the best that I have ever had. I have very fair skin, and the color that they give me is so natural and flattering. They do a great job!
I love this place! The girls do such a good job and it is also a fun place to be.
They are great sprayers and very professional. For example, one time my legs were not quite perfect after a spray and Donna and I spent a long time trying to figure out what I was doing pre-spray to cause this to happen. She called Infinity Sun, took pictures of my legs, sent them to them in California...and we figured it out! I had switched to a razor that left a little bit of moisturizer when it shaved, and I had been shaving right before I came to be sprayed. So I started shaving the night before instead and all was perfect again. I feel like a valued customer, and that the staff there takes the time to care about me and my experience. I also like that on most of the evenings they offer wine! It adds to the total experience!
I have been mostly to the Myers Park one but twice I have been to the Sharon Corners location. Tammy has sprayed me once there and Anne has sprayed me once there. I feel the same way about the Southpark one as I do the Myers Park one.Their customer service and spray skills are really good. It is also nice that this is a local, home-grown company...I like to support local people and things.
There are lots of great sprayers here and are all very nice. Being open 7 days a week is a real plus, and the staff is always helpful. The spray tanning technique is excellent..even application and the product fades off just like real sun, so no streaking. Every time I go there are tons of brides and I know they want to look their best for their wedding day so that makes me feel in good company!
I have been to both locations (the one on Third Street and the new one at Southpark) and both are good. I use the Myers Park one when I am coming from work and the Southpark one when I am coming from home.
I definitely think they are the best in town.
