4 places in the DMV to get a golden brown spray tan

Not all of us were blessed with the perfect Kardashian glow year round (ps. they spray tan too) and because of that, we have to find a way to take our ghostly winter legs to a glistening summer tan. This is where spray tanning comes in! It is a safe alternative to roasting yourself in a dangerous tanning bed and can help you achieve the perfect tan with just one session.

We have rounded up the best places in and around the DMV to get sprayed or airbrushed into a golden goddess!

Glow Tanning Salon (1334 Wisconsin Ave, NW)

Choose between a spray tan or airbrush tan to transform your look within a matter of minutes. Glow uses a sunless booth for the spray tans called the VersaSpa that gives you the choice of a clear bronzer with no tint (good if wearing white or going into work) or a tinted bronzer. A single spray session is $33. If you are looking for a more personalized tan, opt for the airbrush tan. The technician applies the tanning solution to the client with a handheld spray gun. This allows for a more precise application. A single session is $65.

Fit to be Tan (3800 Lee Highway, Arlington, Va.)

Enjoy a beautiful tan without all the risks! Fit to be Tan is an airbrush tanning studio with a goal of educating people on the dangers of tanning beds. They have eco-certified products that are safe and effective. The process takes about 10 minutes from start to finish and an airbrush tanning technician will walk you through the whole process, so there will be no confusion! A regular custom airbrush session is $59.

Kelly's Mobile Tan (Old Maple Square, McLean, Va.)

Are you a busy Washingtonian and don't have the time to make it to a tanning salon? Kelly's Mobile Tan is here to save the day with personalized tanning services in the comfort of your own home! Upon request, they bring a pop-up tent to your home (so there is no mess) and provide you with the perfect airbrush tan. You can also have an airbrush tan done at your office, hotel, or at a special event. Talk about convenience! A full body session starts at $110.

Esthetic Laser Clinic ( 8381 Old Courthouse Road, Vienna, Va.)

With a name like Esthetic Laser Clinic you might not think this would be the best place for a spray tan, but spray tanners say otherwise! Clients start with a consultation to decide how dark they want to go, a cream is applied to the hands and feet to prevent the build up of color, the solution is mixed and you are sprayed until you reach your desired color. A full body session starts at $55.
