Obviously 'run to the sun' writes their own reviews. Thats tacky. The salon would be a lot nicer and clean looking if their wasn't a dog running around. What if your customers were highly allergic to pet dander? Yikes.

Im sorry you feel that way. We haven't written any reviews ourselves. Was there something that happened with our salon or our girls that we could address and make right? The dog is actually a draw to Run to the Sun and typically is gone before rush hour. We look forward to your reply. We are sorry you had a bad experience with us when you came in last.

There really is a difference

I regularly work out at the gym. Provided as part my membership I get unlimited free tanning-this being said, I found that (1) visit in the high quality and modern high pressure tanning beds, makes me tan better than 3-4 visits at my gym. I wouldnt have believed it if I hadnt tried their beds and seen the results myself.
The spray tanning at this salon is awesome! I've tried that as well. You will get the benefit of great natural looking color in a matter of hours. I love the benefi
...view moret of light from the tanning beds. At times however, my personal schedule conficts have posed a problem in getting a few actual tanning bed sessions in before a trip. I highly recommend utilizing the professional spray tanning services at Run to the Sun. You will end up with a natural even looking tan and it lasts the entire duration of what a bed tan will. I love this salon and will use and recomend it to anyone who wants to improve their Arctic appearance!view less

Make tanning fun…Run to the Sun!

Have you ever waited for a tanning appointment in awkward silence, staring at travel posters on the wall so that you don’t appear to overhear the desk clerk’s caddy high school phone conversation? BORING!

Wouldn’t you rather get your dose of Vitamin D somewhere you can laugh, relax, and enjoy yourself?

That’s why I ‘Run to the Sun’! The decor is always sunny and tropical, no matter what the weather is like outside. And more importantly, the staff is welcoming, upbeat, and
...view moreprofessional. They keep the atmosphere at Run to the Sun both laid back and fun.

Better yet, they happen to be experts on the science of tanning. (Yes, there is a science to it!) I have yet to ask the staff a question they couldn’t answer about the levels of tanning, tanning beds, lotions, after tan care, or the effects of tanning. They even have sunless tanning specialists!!! The staff is educated to help you achieve the most healthy, beautiful tan possible. I mean, WOW! That’s customer service!

Even If you don't feel ‘chatty’ they have plenty of things to interest you. You can shop for Tommy Bahamas beachwear, or peruse the super sexy Miche bag collection. Or my personal favorite - play with the Run to the Sun mascot, Rex!!!

I promise, you'll have fun at Run to the Sun,

spectacular tanning experience!

Run to the Sun Tanning Salon has great tanning beds. My favorite beds are their levels 1 & 2. Upon going there for the first time, I didn't understand the difference between the beds, but their knowledgeable 'tanning techs' explained everything. All of their employees are Smart Tan certified so they know what they are talking about. Their girls explained the differences in the lotions and helped me find the best one for me. Run to the Sun has a spectacular staff and their ...view morecustomer service is top of the line. Best tanning salon in town, by far!view less

Perfect Tan!

i have never had a ""fake"" tan before. but, i was on my way to the Carribean and didn't want to look like the underside of a halibut! the Run to the Sun staff were informative and efficient. The process took about ten minutes and the results were incredible! i was able to step right out on the beach looking great! just remember to use lots of sunscreen, as this ""tan"" doesn't protect you from the sun. \r
i highly recommend Run to the Sun and am certain to be back there myself s

This is the best place to get a spray tan. The girls who work there really gave me good tips for how

I have tanned here for years, the new owners have made the place so nice. They keep it so clean and, I always get great results on the tanning beds. \r
The spray tan is amazing! I had not been in tanning and suddenly realized the military ball was this weekend. I was so white, which did not look good in my dress. After hearing about Spray Tanning, I decided to give it a try. The girl who set up my appointment, made sure I understood how to get ready. Christina was the girl who sprayed

The tan I got from the spray was so much nicer then the tan I get from tanning on the beds. The best part was I was tan overnight, ready for the ball tonight.
