Best tanning salon I have ever been to – Great location, awesome staff, and excelent results. Five stars!!!
This is very embarassing to admit, but my partner convinced me to get an airbrush tan. Thankfully, I wasn't given the fake tan look, and the stuff they put on me didn't smell like I was rolling in a bed of flowers. Whew!
The staff was friendly and calmed my nerves when they saw that I was a true newbie. They took the time to explain all the different choices and now that we miraculously are having good weather, I am all set for a while.
Longtime favorite – I've been going to brown sugar for years now. It's my go to place for a natural looking tan before all my big events. The girls working there are friendly and very well trained. I've tried a lot of places around here and LA. Brown sugar is by far the best airbrush tan I have ever gotten.
Hidden Treasure in San Francisco – To anyone who has had a negative experience at Brown Sugar I suggest you call the owner and talk to her. Give her a chance to make it right! I don't have the greatest body because I could stand to lose 20 lbs which I can't because I have a thyroid problem. Was I uncomfortable the first time? Yes I was. Am I OK getting naked so I can have a gorgeous tan? I am now! Thanks Brown Sugar.
Horrible – Maybe if the service was better I would have given it higher ratings, but my friends and I have all come to the same conclusion, that brown sugar is definately not the best place to get a spray tan.
Every time I have come in the girl is always late, leaving me standing in a narrow hall with no where to sit. The rooms are messy. The tan is so-so. and it is very pricey for what little it does. Not to mention they never pick up their phone, so it just adds to the fact that when I do finally get an appointment in the morning the girl is constantly late.
If you want consistency and actual good customer service, go somewhere else.
Best Sunless Tan I've ever had! – Whenever I visit San Francisco, I always make sure I get a litte"brown sugar". I have never been so at ease in such a personal setting. The girl that sprayed me was so professional and explained everything to me. She also happened to be the owner! I will never go back to mystic or sunbed tanning. They also sell great products and know their products. They are the Best! I said it before and i I think its worth repeating!
My favorite tanning place in California – I don't tan easily and I have become a savant at all fake-tan products and Brown sugar not only gives the best color (BROWN!!) but the positions they give you when you go in the machine ensure a really even look. I love the atmosphere because it's casual and fun, the smell is a little overpowering but you get over it.
If you have an event to go to and you're worried about looking yellow or orange if you do it the day of, Brown Sugar is the place to go. You'll never get that weird color.
Also, they say take a shower in a few hours, but i always just sleep on it and shower the next morning and then i look super tan! But either way it's awesome!
Editorial Review by Citysearch Editors – Offers single sessions and packages for airbrush tanning. Cosmetics and other recommended beauty products are also available.
Brown Sugar : sweet tan not so sweet atmosphere – This place looks like some high-school kids opened up a spa in their apartment.
The tan, does however look quite real. Make sure to 'buff' afterwards otherwise you will end up poka-dotted
What a Difference – I was so excited to try out Brown Sugar and was even more excited once I saw the results from my great tan! I had tried other spray tans, but I had heard Brown Sugar was different. I was more than pleased with the service I received there. The staff was very friendly and informative. They took the time to explain the diffence between their Mist-on equipment and other machines on the market. The results were much more even, and the color looked more natural. Thanks Brown Sugar!
