I have been going tanning here for almost 5 years now, both airbrushed and tanning and about last week i went tanning and found 3 pieces of hairs in my towel on the tanning bed with white dots, then i needed to get airbrushed so mad for an event so i made an appoitment at the chelsea location and the girl did not even speak english let alone know how to airbrush me.
Discusting and they take your money like its candy.
Never going to beachbum again.

Had a wedding last weekend and needed some color badly! Made an appointment with Dante at the Beach Bum on 14th Street. It is the best airbrush tan I have ever had. The color is beautiful (still have it after 8 days) and it looks so natural.
Totally recommend going to see him!

I needed a tan FAST for a last minute photoshoot, so I went to Beach Bum for an airbrush tan. They had an opening for an appointment so they were able to take me right away. I was a little skeptical because I had never tanned at Beach Bum before, but the salesperson was very helpful and the airbrush girl made me feel extremely comfortable. I have never gotten such amazing, natural-looking color from an airbrush tan before! IT WAS AMAZING. I'll be going to Beach Bum from now on for sure.

After tanning in salons for about 6 years and being a frequent customer of beach bum, I will never again go back. I contracted a serious staph infection from one of the ""platinum beds"" and nearly lost my life from the severity of the infection. After contacting the company about this they denied that they were the cause and refused to refund my money for the tanning let alone help me pay the hospitalization bills. The location and timing of the infection only coincided with my trip to this particular salon last July. And not only was I not offered a refund as a valued customer the staff was extremely unnecessarily rude and I possibly could have even died. Please be cautious when tanning in a bed as staph and other infectious diseases are easily spread when the beds aren't properly cleaned. I will never go back.

$36 for one 7-minute tanning session?! Sorry, make that $26 for the one tanning session and $10 for a 1.5oz. pack of lotion. Simply stated: arbitrarily overpriced and for nothing special. One tanning session there is half the price of a month's membership at a nice gym!
Beach Bum doesn't offer anything so special that it's worth the prices there. Save yourself the money and tan at a cheap East Village salon. You'll get the same glowing effect in the end.

I don't know why InStyle voted this the number one spray tan in New York. The salon is incredibly warm, my appointment was double booked so I had to wait 40 minutes for my appointment, for an over-priced spray tan that last only a handful of days. I have had much better tans for half the price. Don't bother going there, go somewhere else and save yourself the time and money.

I recently moved to the union square area from out of town and was pleasantly surprised to find a full service tanning salon with convenient hours. Curious and anxious to check it out I headed in to find a young, eager, and well-informed salesperson behind the counter who explained everything they had to offer in full detail. Being most-interested in the lay down tanning beds, it was recommended that I use their ""Diamond"" level machines because they offered ""the fastest results, with the least amount of redness, and the most amenities to the beds."" After trying their P-90 machine with a recommended lotion I was sold. It only took me three sessions to build my base tan, and two to three sessions a month to maintain my golden glow. With their competitive pricing, informative and well-trained staff, flexible hours, and numerous machines it's a steal! The store is very well kept and worth the travel if it's out of your way.

Being completely clueless about how this tanning business works, I walk into this beautifully designed tanning salon to try to get some kind of color because I'm so pale. The sales woman behind the counter explained how everything worked. When I tell you this place has everything to offer, I mean they have everything!!! Who would have thought that tanning could be so complicated and there were so many things to choose from. I found out that each machine does something different for you. It was just all too cool. I got a package deal where I can either do the tanning bed or the sunless tan which is great by the way and they gave me a whole bunch of free sessions!!!! oh it gets better, since I got a package, I can tan every sunday for free!!!! yesss for free!!!! all i have to do is buy a $5 lotion which you need anyway!! It's so great....I only been twice and I have gotten so many compliments already!!! def check this place out and it was really clean and well maintaned!!!!

I am really recommending this salon to anyone looking for a tanning salon to tan in. The tanning beds are top of the line, the place is immaculate and the staff is top notch. I am used to small hole in the wall tanning salons back home in Indiana. I did not expect such a nice, large beautiful tanning salon in Manhattan.

This salon stays open until midnight every night of the week. It is great for me as my shift ends at 11:00. A couple nights ago I called and was running late. Alicia was sweet enough to stay open until 12:30 so I could tan. She also told me I could go to the Beach Bum tanning at 86th street because they are open 24 hours. 24 hour tanning!!! Only in New York.
