I only do custom spray tans. I know nothing about the beds or booths.
First of all, there is only one person who is trained to do the custom and you have to make your appointment around her schedule. The first time she sprayed me, it looked excellent. The second time, it immediately started coming off in big splotches. She said maybe I needed to be using one of Norvell's particular something or other's creams, washes, etc. From then on every time she sprayed me something like this happened and her reason was always because I needed another product. I have EVERY product Norvell makes. She just wants to sell products.
The problem is that she doesn't know what she is doing. Never go there for a custom spray bc you will either have to go to extreme measures to have it removed or wear long pants or skirts in the middle of the hot summer.
She doesn't call you back If you have a problem; she has her employees takes a message and they contact her (supposedly).

Awesome!!!!

Glow is, by far, the best salon in the area!!! They have the best bulbs and a well trained staff to help educate each individual client on how to optimize their tanning experience the safest and most effective way possible. They also offer Mystic Tans and thoroughly instruct you about the process and which shade is best for you. The owner is extremely dedicated to her clients ensuring they have the most satisfying tanning experience from start to finish! Their hours of operation and cleanliness cannot be beat! I highly recommend Glow :))

Best In Town

Glow is awesome! The package prices are very reasonable and specials are ran almost every month. They also offer a Mystic Tan special every Monday: "Mystic Monday - any shade of Mystic Tan for only $17". The owner is very dedicated to each and every client educating & helping them decide what package, lotion, and/or products will best suit their tanning needs. And their products are all priced under the MSRP. While buying online may be less expensive, you aren't guaranteed a thorough review of what's actually going to work best for you, nor do you know if the product out of date or will even work. Glow is always super clean and the beds are hot! I highly recommend this salon!! :)

I love it!

Glow is the best tanning salon in the Birmingham area. The owner is really hands on and cares about her customers. The staff is young but friendly. The salon is spotlessly clean- really sanitary, no nasty stray hairs or leftover residue from the tanner before you like you might see at some tanning salons. I have seen the girls there clean the beds and they are thorough. The beds are new and bulbs are hot. They have bronzer and regular beds. Each room has a remote control fan and a personal speaker that allows you to control the volume. Also, Glow has the newest model Mystic Tan booth. It sprays you from 4 directions so there are no streaks and the scents they add are great. They offer special combos that include a tanning be session and a mystic tan. You can get in the tanning bed for up to 20 minutes and then they provide you a clean robe and a little bag to put your clothes in so that you don't have to get fully dressed to walk a couple of steps to the mystic tan room. This is really convenient. They have lotions in all price ranges from brands like Australian Gold and Designer Skin. I really love the artwork in the bathroom, too!

I Love Glow!

By far the best in the area! Glow is clean and all the beds are new! The bronzer beds are larger than most and my husband really likes that! I love the mystic tan! The employees are very friendly and helpful. They have specials every month. We usually buy the bronzer bed minutes which works out great because we can tan in about half the time of a regular bed. We have purchased lotions anywhere from 25.00-55.00. We have always been completely satisfied!

motherofone is right, this is a very nice and clean salon. I also purchased some lotion for under $55, that was auctually I believe around $25. This salon has more services available to it's customers that other salons in the area dont offer, one major thing being the mystic tan booth, and the bronzer beds. The employees were very friendly and helpful.The prices are average, and they run alot of specials and discounts on a regular basis. All the beds are up to date and each room provides its own speaker with a volume contol knob.This salon is gonna be your best bet for the area by far.

The correct information

Glow tanning salon is above and beyond the quality of any other tanning salon around the Gardendale/Mount Olive area. Sure you can go to some other salon, such as Movie Madness whos may be $2 cheaper and have a roach crawl on you if thats what you want to do. Yes, the girls that work at Glow are young, as are the girls at most tanning salons. I go here almost every Monday to get a Mystic Tan. The girls are always very nice and helpful. The girls clean the beds for you, the beds have a face tanner and i beeping warning before it shuts off. I really like this. If you do not like the way its ran when you visit then dont go back. There is plenty of people who think it is a wonderful salon and im sure the owner has plenty of business.To correct the information about the tanning lotion, i personally bought lotion for $35, which is cheaper than $50 if im not mistaken. The better lotions are exspensive, as are most things in the world. If you dont like the price, then dont buy it! Glow also has teeth whitner that is used in the bed, which works awesome, lip blam to protect your lips, among many other things to please every person with any need that tans here. I highly recomend this tanning salon.

This tanning salon is very clean and the beds are fine, however, they are very expensive. I have been to all tanning salons in the area and based on the beds they are of no higher quality than any of the others. They did have a special where if you bought lotion you got free 5 days of tanning, but none of the lotion was under $55.00. you can get the same lotion online for 20. Seems to me they are wanting a huge profit. Not worth it for me!
