Every time you step outside, your skin is targeted by UV rays, dirt, angry dogs, and the New Jersey Devils. Get a golden hue without the puck damage with today's Groupon: for $25, you get an organic spray tan (a $55 value) from Shade Bar Boutique Spa, a glamorous boutique spa located in Astoria.
Shade Bar offers an organic, natural-looking spray tan that will last five to seven days. Professionally applied, each tan will bronze your full body, dry quickly, and fade evenly, for a glow more elegantly attained than basting in a whirlpool of radioactive honey. Before coming in for an appointment, Shade Bar recommends that you wear loose-fitted, dark clothing; remove all makeup; and avoid moisturizers, perfumes, and deodorants, as they may refashion your new skin-suit into a leopard-print leotard.
Glitzy gold accents, vibrant red walls, dark wood, and chocolaty-brown bedspreads make Shade Bar's setting ideal for bolstering beauty and cataloguing different types of pinecones. Shade Bar takes a balanced approach to body and mind; the experienced staff pampers spiritual and corporeal forms for the duration of your appointment.
Services by appointment only.

Shade Bar Organic Hairspa
It is easy to turn plants into a salad, but it is harder to turn them into a natural-looking tan. Shade Bar Organic Hairspa, named a top spray-tanning salon by TimeOut New York, Citysearch and CBS New York, does exactly that, though, bronzing physiques with signature organic spray tans that glow and fade evenly. The focus on natural beauty products doesn’t end there, though—it permeates the entire aesthetic center.
Shade Bar Organic Hairspa’s facials, which each begin with a personal skin analysis, often incorporate Manuka honey masks that improve cell regeneration, or masks crafted from seaweed and geothermal clay. Body treatments also draw on organic ingredients that moisturize dry skin and slim physiques, a process that was historically only possible by squeezing into an hourglass. A Goldwell color bar, professional makeup applications, waxing, and tension-relieving massages round out the center’s suite of aesthetic services. Every other week, a beauty advisor from Shade Bar Organic Hairspa dishes beauty tips on the Telemundo New York morning show.
