By harnessing the bronzing essence of the fiery sun in a gentle mist, you can prove once and for all humankind's dominance over the weak, inanimate solar system. For $20, you’ll get a custom airbrush tan at Perfect Tan in Brookline (a $40 value.) Perfect Tan was voted best Boston Sunless Tanning in 2008 by Citysearchers. It's a clean and comfortable salon that specializes in helping first-time tanners get a golden glow, perfect for hiding in the suitcase in Pulp Fiction or tricking cars at intersections into slowing down.
With an airbrush tan, you can instantly transform your look, shocking friends and causing enemies to spontaneously combust into delicious glitter. Perfect Tan’s expert bronze misters quickly spray you with a pigmentally potent solution. Technicians can give you a light overall tan or make you as dark as you'd like in minutes. Hands and feet always turn out perfectly tanned since the spray is applied evenly by hand. Results last a little more than a week; the tan will fade as gradually as if it were natural, just like a college friendship.
An airbrush tan is the perfect way to get a glow during the sunless season. Earlier, technologically inferior societies valued powdery paleness and wish-granting leeches. Nowadays, a smooth tan showing itself off beneath a sparkling frock is a mark of refinement. Perfect Tan is open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 11 p.m., on Saturday from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m., and on Sunday from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Call ahead to make an appointment.
Perfect Tan lived up to its name, when Citysearchers voted it the Best Boston Sunless Tanning in 2008. Yahoo! Locals, Yelpers, and Citysearchers are of a like mind, giving the salon 4.5 stars, while Cityvoters, too, rave about their perfect tans:
- The airbrush tans here are the most natural looking you can find in Boston. – rae, Cityvoter
- The environment here is relaxed and happy, the girls are friendly and smart, and the whole salon is clean and bright. This is the only place I've gone in Boston where I always get results on my first visit. When I decided to do an airbrush tan for new year's I was a bit nervous but the staff was very helpful when answering my questions, and the girl that sprayed me, made me feel comfortable and relaxed... – rtfoster, Citysearch
