Ive been to my fair share of tanning salons in New York City and elsewhere, this place is the cleanest around and the customer service is second to none.

Ive been to my fair share of tanning salons in New York City and elsewhere, this place is the cleanest around and the customer service is second to none.

Pros: CLEAN BEYOND BELIEF, GREAT MACHINES

Cons: WISH THEY WERE OPEN EARLIER

.

The people that own this place used to own Bond Street Tanning: the establishment that literally stole all of the money from their clients when it closed up overnight. However, they were "smart" about it and sold quite a few large packages, some for about $1,000 (airbrush tanning sessions). The owner Uriel is/was a low level real estate agent and his fiance is a frustrated city girl from Wisconsin who is the typical ??model? slash this, that, and every other thing in between. Now this may seem irrelevant in terms of a review of a business; however it is their mutual desperation which has in the past and currently leads them to steal money from their clients in order to compensate for their poor business choices and desire for a lifestyle which they can not keep up with. It is their unrelenting need to maintain an appearance of success which drives them to do so. Remember the best predictor of future behavior is past behavior - stay FAR away; I would know better than most as I worked for them. J

Cons: They lie, cheat, steal for a living

I looooove to fake tan! love it. I have just about every product on Sephora shelves in my own bathroom. I love to experiment with new things and try absolutely everything out there. I ran across Color Tanning in the Allure issue of last month and decided to book an appt with Nicole Zito the artist that was mentioned in the article. She was sooooo sweet. The awkwardness that one can endure being barely dressed can scar you for life...but she was super talkative and just the sweetest. You could really tell that she cared what she was doing. Every little inch was perfectly sprayed...it was a great change to the "power hose" that other salons can use. Usually your done in 3 minutes. Nicole took 20 and I received the most stunning, natural tan ive ever had. This salon really knows what they are doing. Perfecto!

Pros: Best application for an airbrush tan, beautiful!

Cons: its temporary :(

so I had a family reunion to go to and I had to get a tan on my pasty white skin. I only had two days before the reunion so decided to try out the airbrush by nicole. nicole actually traveled to my apt and airbrushed me in the comfort of my own home!
her work yielded an amazing natural tan result... like I had gotten a real natural looking tan not that orange streaky result.
nicole also walked me through the entire process for before preparation and after in order to maximize the results. I looked and felt amazing for the reunion!

Pros: airbrush artist comes to your home

Cons: tan only lasted 8 days

I made an appointment for an airbrush tan after reading the glowing review in Allure magazine. I had a wedding to go to and decided I was going to splurge the $100 bucks for the "Five-Star Results". I made the appointment a week in advance and they asked for a credit card to "hold the appointment". The next day I see that they had already charged my card, more than a week before my actual appointment. I called and I get a oh ok, i'll have them take care of it brush off but it was never taken care of so I just left it. 15 minutes after I arrive im told that I am not on the schedule mind you I have already been charged but it will be a few more minutes. 20 minutes later, Nicole comes and tells me her airbrush gun isnt working, that shes sorry, she will give me a free tan, etc (all bs) and the biggest lie is that I will get my money back that I have already been charged. I have called 5 times and each time I am told I will receive a call back and nothing and still out $100 bucks a week later. FYI

I first found out about the salon through the Allure magazine issue last month with fergie on the cover...quite a few salons were listed under the "golden touch" directory, but this salon was the only one rated with 5 stars, of course it was a bit more expensive than the rest...but the reason is because of the time and effort that goes into the airbrush. My color was mixed just for my specific skin tone and was applied with the tiniest gun...like the size of a pen, slowly she blended my color so it went on just right...not too dark and not too lite. Nikki was really concerned whether I liked the results or not, just really sweet. Ive already scheduled my follow up appointment and will be addicted for life...no more sun damage for this body. Completely UV FREE :)

great promo where u can buy a week free of tanning with only one tan for $39.00, the next 7 days u can come in and try EVERY machine in the place for the same price.
if u like it, which u will..u can get a pack of tans that last anywhere from 3 months up to an entire year. i use only high pressure machines, which of course r the most expensive machines to tan in. they r super affordable at color...the cheapest ive found in the city, especially to tan in this nice of equipment...any cheaper you'll be in stand ups at Hollywood Tan burning ur skin off for $30 bucks a month...yuck.

I had a terrible experience at this salon. After paying for one tan ($40), they kept my credit card # and charged $103. I had to call six times before they would agree to reverse the charge. Each time I was told that someone would call me back, and no one ever did. I finally had to go to the store. Not surprisingly, there was a customer there who had the same issue (they had "mistakenly" charged her credit card for more than she had authorized). They recredited my account (supposedly), but I am still waiting to see the credit on my statement (this was one week ago), They also misrepresent their packages..you'll see on the price-card "Ten Tans for $44" but it really means that EACH tan is $44 if you buy a package of ten. They wait for you to give them your credit card information and they basically charge you for the package they want you to buy, This is a very shady place and I would be extremely careful of doing business with them. I have already notified the better bussiness bureau about them.

If you are familiar with this place- I'm sure you've seen the people standing out front passing out flyers...I was one of them for a while.

They bounced 7 checks to me and NEVER paid my bank fees! So unfortunate that people are so sleazy sometimes.

So don't go there- Go somewhere where they at least pay their employees.

The sessions are sooo much cheaper than what they used to be! Finally. Im writing in hopes that Color Tanning will keep them. Trust me, we all love and appreciate the change. You can pay the same everywhere else, but you pay for what you get here. The place is soo pretty and the machines are the best you can find in NY.

Great way to get free tans, i brought in a few friends from school and ended up getting tans added to my account for each one. its great becuz no matter no matter what you can use whatever machine you want! so i can use the vest of the best everytime, the laydowns they have are usually really expensive everywhere else, but with the "refer a friend" system you can really score some extra tans. great for the recession :)

This placed has a great deal where you can tan free for an entire week by just getting one session..it was 39 dollars, which is great if you put your week to good use. I used every machine in the place. The lay downs were my favorite, super relaxing and huuuuge. The stand up machines are waaaay too strong but gave me awesome color in the first day. They were super helpful showing me what machines to use and set the time just right so I wouldnt burn. Mexico, here I come!

Seriously, get someone else to write them, becasue they are so clearly the same person.

AND...I've been there. No one who has been there is going to glow with enthusiasm after that horrible customer service and over charging

Awesome experience at Color Salon, the airbrush artist was sweet as pie and gave me a fabulous tan for my sisters wedding, I needed something light but extremely even (bright bridesmaid dress, never good)...it was very settle and gave me a great healthy glow. I hope it can last a few more days....i can definitely score a few dates with skin like this, lol.

Ive been a member at Color for almost a year now and renew my package every 2 months. I was excited to see that the pricing has changed for the better. Cheaper packages, but you still get the same awesome equipment for the same price. You dont have to pay for points or upgrade fees. I believe they have the same promotion for a while ago where you can buy 1 tan and get a whole week for FREE on top. Great deal!

I just celebrated my bachelorette party about 2 weeks ago and had all of my girlfriends over to get sprayed before we went out and about nyc. I have a pretty small apartment and was worried at first how she could spray 8 of us without trashing my apt. Instead, we were all sprayed standing in my bathtub!! She was very friendly and made two of the girls who were a little more modest than the rest feel super comfortable. It took about 15 mins for each of us. Our tans processed within 4 hours, in time for us to be showered and ready to go. I had such a blast. It was like being in college again. She even cleaned the shower before leaving. Spotless :)

My name is Sheridan and went infor the first time to Color to try the spray tan. It turned out fabulously brown and even (thank g-d)...No one said a thing at the wedding, so in my book its a winner. Its great to know I dont have to worry about the next upcoming event or know that i wont need anymore torture on my skin from tanning booths. "im lovin it!"

Im so excited to see what me strapless wedding gown will look like now that im bronzed and look so much more even and toned :) Perrfect

One of the flyer girls out front literally forced me into the salon. To my suprise the place was designed to a T and very chic. Im not necessarily the bigggest tanner on the block but who doesnt like a little "color" every now and then. Thats exactly what I got. i used there buy one and get one free but applied to a month unlimited to I can let it rip a little before Summer comes to a hault. The machine was awesome that i used.
Check it out yo.

Thanks to whoever it was that posted the promotion that this salon is having. i went in last night with my printed copy and got myself a pack of 5...they added the free tan on top and i got to use that last night. I guess the 5 pack has an expiration of 3 months, so that wont begin til my next visit. its perfect to maintain my tan a few times a month while the weather cools off. The machine was great that I used..not sure what its called, but it was big and "high pressure"...who cares....it got the job done :) :) :)

Can not believe the inbterior of this place. It should be something else. i cant believe its just for tanning....you people need nails, massages, facials....it'll be the new hangout spot for all of us ladies. amazing! i'll have a word with the owner :)

i had an absolutely amazinig experience at color, from buying my package to picking out a lotion to touring the salon and then the final result. Im excited for my next visit and to use the new machine they have in the back. Some really cool equipment that ive never seen before. They've made it affordable and fun. Great idea!

My name is Charlene and I am African American and never once thought that it was even appropriate for me to walk into a tanning salon., I noticed that this salon in particular had an ?Airbrushing? sign in the window and I went in to get some information on it. . . the woman in the front had one done to herself and it looked very natural and even (she showed me her legs and arms)?now obviously she was very fare compared to my deep complexion but she said that many woman, even darker come into have it done to even out there skin tone?it doesn?t matter how dark or how white you are..its near impossible to have a perfectly even skin tone. As a bonus this is also used to fill in stretch marks and helps shade in any bruises or deep veins. Me, in particular loved the idea of looked more toned and even, my upper body is much darker than my legs and stomach. Summer isn?t over yet and I went to try it out. It gave me a beautiful deep golden (beyonce glow) and is still on to this day..I had it done about 6 days ago and Im so happy for the results!

My name is Charlene and I am African American and never once thought that it was even appropriate for me to walk into a tanning salon., I noticed that this salon in particular had an ?Airbrushing? sign in the window and I went in to get some information on it. . . the woman in the front had one done to herself and it looked very natural and even (she showed me her legs and arms)?now obviously she was very fare compared to my deep complexion but she said that many woman, even darker come into have it done to even out there skin tone?it doesn?t matter how dark or how white you are..its near impossible to have a perfectly even skin tone. As a bonus this is also used to fill in stretch marks and helps shade in any bruises or deep veins. Me, in particular loved the idea of looked more toned and even, my upper body is much darker than my legs and stomach. Summer isn?t over yet and I went to try it out. It gave me a beautiful deep golden (beyonce glow) and is still on to this day..I had it done about 6 days ago and Im so happy for the results!

.

If only I had the $$. I went in about 2 weeks ago and bought a pack of 5 =$150 and used 1 of my sessions. I realized a week later that I didn't have the money to spend on tanning and called in for a refund. The girl told me that there was anon return policy and that all sales were final. Now don't get me wrong, the place is hot and the one tanning session that I did have was a good one. But it's a bummer that when someone needs money and they cant afford to tan that they cant do anything for you other than extend the expiration date. Ridiculous.

Pros: Would love to tan here if i could afford it

Cons: They dont give refunds!!!!

I was really surprised on how professional the staff was at Color Tanning. I had a session back in one of there high pressure tanning beds and noticed that one of the bulbs was out on the lower portion of the bed, I didn't notice it until my session was near finished, so on the way out I notified the guy at the front (David I believe) and he right away added another tan to my account and apologized about it about 5 times. I couldn't believe how nice and generous he was. It was nice to see someone who actually cares than someone who makes an excuse or plays stupid. Its alllll very rare.

Interior = 9
Service = 9
Staff = 9
Design = 10
Quality = 9?the idea is a great one, I like the idea of having a boutique tanning salon than a really beachy, sunny one?this is s-xy and high end. I really enjoy the Chelsea crowd. I see the same people from my gym in the salon tanning, and have met some really cool people just waiting for one of the machines.

Color Tanning is part of my weekend ritual. i go to brunch with the girls, get a blowout on my hair, mani and pedi and then of course tan myself. Ive been seeing Nikki now for atleast 5 months or so, once a week and she sprays me down. Im very concerned and scared by the though of aging, wrinkling, or even getting spots, especially on my face. So ive been doing airbrushing now ever since. Ive turned all my girlfreidns over to it and dont see a reason to even use the other stuff. This is instant, perfectly even, awesome color, slowly fades out, just like a real tan would and is in the most beautiful salon that exists. i love our new spot and absolutely love anything that my girl friends and i can go and do together every sunday. There open from 8am to midnite, so we've even decided to go in at 11 before and had no problem taking us in and taking care of us. A 10 in my book.

Being from Wisconsin im no used to sucha luxury as tanning....Defintely not in a salon that looks like this. Now dont get me wrong, its expensive lkike everything else in this city but well worth it. if this is what you are into then by all means this is your place to tan. They offer everything under the sun that can make you bprown and gorgeous and your in the hottest looking place by far. After all...this is what NYC is about, right?

i wanted to get on to just thank Color for helping me with my spray tan disaster I received from Sundara Airbrush...the girl was very sweet but I knew as soon as she started that it was going to be all over the place...she assured me no, but low and behold, im orange and have patches from my neck down...thank god I didnt have her spray my face...Ive been walking around with a hoodie since that morning I woke up looking like Micheal Jackson. That is until i walked into Color and talked to a girl named Nicole who told me she could do some patch work/magic on me and help me blend everything in and try to fix the coloring. She did! I couldnt believe it! She used totally different equipment and the solution was a better color as soon as it went on my skin. I also has her do my face after seeing the work she had done on my disaster of a body. Thank you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It was unbelievable how much color I got from just one session at Color. I went into there 9 minute stand up and pretty much came out a new human being. Ive had a glow for days and my color was the perfect bronze, nice and even!
Being that it was only 9 minutes saved me time and long torture under UV lights on my skin. The young lady helping me was very well educated on tanning and knew exactly what each machine should be used for, how long to use and how often, I felt really comfortable in the place all together. They have a great ambience and very friendly staff.

I went in thinking i would have a seat and a bite to eat and found out it was a tanning salon, I walked out a member with a really nice tan, and a hungry belly. i had an awesome 20 minute power nap in obe of there back rooms that o nly has UVA i guess, the browning ray. I tan very easy and was relaxed by the openess and the length of time that the machine went. It wasnt killer heat either, but still delivered awesome results. I think its fabulous and will continue to spread the word!

If it wasnt for the fireplace in the window then i would have no clue that this place even existed. Its very flush with everything that else thats on the street and really the only thing high end that even exists on the block. now that there is some really nice housing being built, it all is coming together. i think there an amazing addition to the block and they have started something that i think will be amazing and continue to spread its way up and down 14th street, moving right into meat packing. Its a hot place and is definitely the nicest tanning salon ive ever seen. My girlfriend fell in love with the place...Color now has members for life!

Pros: beautiful space

Cons: hard to see

A+++This place is very well done. Im african american, and just based off the looks this place has to be dynamite. The whole entire place is covered in wood and the front display is one of the biggest slabs of marble ive seen (very chic). Its very minimal, clean and sharp. The guy at the front helped too, he was striking as ever and very put together. I like this alot. I think they should add some services like massage or nail services so I can become a member! I would really enjoy relaxing in this place after work every once in a while. Very convenient location and just in ahhhhh over the design. Awesome work!

This tanning salon is one of a kind...its design is jaw dropping and probably the most upscale tanning you've ever experienced. The girl at the front was very warm and inviting and made sure to take her time and go through all the packages and promotions they were offering. She set both my boyfriend and i up in a two booths (which i normally dont care for...i get pretty sick with the heat and being closed in...)these were different. The rooms were cool, warm and very clean...it was a reallly fast stand up that really gave me the kick of color that i needed. I think this place is great for the neighbrohood and impossibel to miss walking by at night...the fireplace in the window draws you in :) - atleast it worked on us!

my name is Kat and i ended up missing my plane the other night to LA for some sun and poolside..and found out that my flight was canceled and moved to a later date...i went into Color on the way home and spoke with the girl at the front who urged me to try an airbrush tan to cheer me up some...she said it was instant and would last a good week, atleast until I could get in some real sun. I ended up loving it and already scheduled another session right before i go. i say scr-w the sun and save my skin...I already look tan and look amazing..thats all I really wanted. This is going to save me years and wrinkles...what an awesome invention.

i have psoriasis really bad on my shins and elbows so my dermy recommended that I go in a nd start tanning...I guess your only supposed to be using UVB the "burning ray" to take the itchiness and redness away. i went in and the girl at the desk knew just what i was talking about...she said she had eczema and knew exactly where to put me, i guess they have twop machines (booths) that is perfect for this sort of thing. Its good to not sweat, get color everywhere on your body and not have to worry about those sweat spots that you can get on you back from tanning! Very nice...Im glad they are soo well educated on certain skin disorders, i felt very comfortable talking about everything that i needed.

SPRAY TAN WAS NEEDED VERY BADLY THE OTHER NIGHT, SO MY GIRLFRIENDS AND I SEARCHED OUR WHOLE NEUIGHBORHOOD, FROM WEST4TH ALL THE WAY TO 14TH STREET. LOW AND BEHOLD THE LAST PLACE THAT WE LOOKED WAS THE IDEAL PLACE TO GO IN AND GET SPRAYED..YOU COULD TELL THEY WERE CLEAN AND THEY KNEW EXACTLY WHAT THEY WERE DOING. THE ONLY THING WAS THAT THEY DONT HAVE THE SPRAY BOOTH AT ALL.... THEY ACTUALLY ONLY DO THE HEAD TO TOE AIRBRUSHING...WHICH THE ARTIST WAS CUTE AS EVER AND WAS EXCITED TO SHOW US HOW THE WHOLE THING WORKED. IVE ALWAYS WANTED TO TRY IT, BUT I ALWAYS FIGURED IT WAS WAAAY TOO EXPENSIVE. A SPRAY BOOTH IS USUALLY LIKE 22 OR 35 AT THE MOST IVE SEEN IT. THIS WAS 95 (LITTLE DIFFERENCE ;) BUT WORTH EVERY PENNY. IT WAS PERFECTLY EVEN AND LASTS TWICE AS LONG, AROUND 7-9 DAYS. MINE SLOWLY FADED OUT AND WASNT SPOTTED AT ALL...I GOT LOADS OF COMPLIMENTS.
