We all want that beautiful, healthy glow you get from spending a week at the beach, but no one wants to risk harmful exposure to the sun. Spray tans are great except for the fact that they are often uneven, too dark, splotchy, wear off within a week and take 4-6 hours to process, or do they?
Local tanning beds of course have spray tans, and sure, they work, but you might look like Snooki in 4-6 hours if you're not careful.

So where does this leave us? Pure Tan!

Pure Tan opened early last month, and last night had their open house. Located on Frankfort Avenue, Pure Tan is Louisville's only organic spray tan salon, based out of California. It was voted as the #1 Airbrush Tan in the USA by Allure Magazine in 2011. At Pure Tan Studio they customize your experience by allowing you to choose your own aroma, shimmering effects and shade in your tan. A unique experience and customizable tan all while staying organic and health conscious.

Organic spray tan, you might be wondering what that exactly means. Pure Tan uses Lavish tan solutions Lavish Tan created a brown-sugar based solution derived from apples. The brown sugar base ensures golden brown color eliminating all possibilities of an orange tone. Most all other solutions on the market contain beat or carrot fermented extracts, which is where the orange tones and unpleasant scent stem from.

Tanning technicians mix up your own personal blend to ensure the color you want, each tan is unique and customized for each tanner!
