10 Best Tanning Salons in New York

If you’re looking to achieve that perfectly glowing and bronzed look even when there are clouds in the sky, that’s where New York’s awesome tanning salons come in. From airbrush spray tans to traditional tanning booths, here are the 10 best salons in the state. 

Future Tan’s Tanning Spa, New York, NY

Future Tan’s has two different sunless tanning options. The simpler one is the Mystic Spray Tan via the Mystic MyMyst, which is the only spray-on tanning machine that sprays you with a side-to-side motion in order to mimic the effects of an airbrush tan. The second option is to do a Custom Airbrush Tanning with Future Tan’s technicians. This airbrush spray tan is more personalized, as the technicians pay more attention to the details than a machine will.
