I have been coming to BP for almost three years now for tans, teeth whitening, and red light therapy! They always do fabulous work. Yesterday I had a spray tan with their new hire, Adisa. She was extremely professional, thorough, and great to talk to. And of course, I'm now a bronzed goddess, with a perfectly even tan that isn't sticky, streaky, or orange. This is a great women-owned business that really benefits Campbell. Everyone here is really passionate about what they do! BP ladies, thank you for making me and so many other women beautiful!

Just went here for the first time and was a bit nervous. MJ is friendly and informative. She explained everything to me and helped me to get the right color for my skin. I tried the coconut shade and my tan is perfect, I am so happy with it.

This place is great! I’ve received tans from all members of their staff and they are all super friendly and do an amazing job! Their teeth whitening service is also very good and helped my teeth become 10 shades whiter! They truly care about their customers and have been quick to provide advice and recommendations to prolong the life of each spray tan in addition to great vibes while spray tanning. Look no further if you are a first time spray tanner or are looking for a new salon!!

I’ve been meaning to write this review for a while now. Bronze Palms (BP) never disappoints. I had a 90 minute teeth whitening session with Emily where I saw immediate results. I was very concerned about one feeling super sensitive after the appointment and two sitting somewhere for 90 minutes! Not only was chair and space comfortable and clean but I was in and out of sleep. As for tans, the BP team always produces what im looking for, a natural looking tan! I have recommended all of my friends to come and they all have had amazing results!

What a great experience! Easy to find and lots of parking! Kaycie My tanning tech met me at the door and quickly welcomed me in. I was so nervous I had never done a spray tan!! She was so sweet and calmed me down by explaining step by step what she was going to do. She reviewed color options and recommended a great suddle match for my skin. The salon was clean, and everyone was so friendly, and I felt super comfortable. The whole process was fast, but wow!! What a difference I love the tan Kaycie M. gave me, I will be back again and again. Kaycie Thank you! see you in a few weeks!

I had my first spray tan with Kaycie yesterday! She is so kind, informative, personable, and makes sure you feel comfortable throughout the whole process. I wasn’t sure what color to get, but after talking with Kaycie I fully trusted her and I believe we did a medium tan which I loved! Before I left she made sure I had my aftercare instructions, that I had time to ask any questions, and how to make my tan last as long as possible. Love the tan and I’ll definitely be back to get my tan from Kaycie

I saw Kaycie ayer for an airbrush. She was very sweet and personable and listened to me about my concerns. I don’t like being airbrushed too dark. I followed the directions by rinsing last night and showering this morning as per usual and my results are AWESOME! This was by far my best airbrush tan ever! And trust me, I’ve been around. I will be going back for sure. The tanning salon is super cute, great parking, products and friendly staff. Tell her Jordan sent ya! Chau!!

I wish I could give 6 stars. This was my first time getting a spray tan, and I was so nervous. The owner was welcoming, kind, and informative. The atmosphere is clean and inviting. My tan has lasted so long with not streaking or irregularly. I've been ranting and raving about the owner and her team. I felt so taken care of from start to finish.

Amazing service! I got a package deal for teeth whitening and tanning. The process was fast, professional and effective! I invested hundreds in dental Zoom whitening in another clinic before, and suffered intense side effects and mediocre results at best. 20 minutes at Bronze Palms and my teeth got 6+ shades lighter. Thanks Bronze palms for giving me the confidence to rock my dress and smile confidently for the camera for my fundraiser event!

Carley and Christina have both been great! Always on time, courteous, clean, and they both make you feel comfortable. Will continue to use this business for my spray tan needs!

The best spray tan ever! Emily or Carly are amazing tan artists. This is worth spending the extra money for a special occasion. They will have you looking like a Sports Illustrated model, and it’s way better result than the tanning mouse from the beauty store. Can’t wait for my next occasion to get a tan from them!

I am a follow spray tan artist. Emily has been my mentor since the beginning of my business. Emily is so knowledgeable and professional. If you are looking to do spray tan training with bronze palms.. do it! You won’t regret it! I have been following her journey from her 1 room studio to her 5 room salon. She takes a lot of pride and effort in giving her clients the best experience. Whoever gets any service from here will love it! Don’t hesitate to book! Book today!

I had such a great experience at Bronze Palms! I got a spray tan for a couples shoot- being very fair skinned, I was worried I would look too tan/intense but Emily made the perfect shade for me. It was the perfect glow and I still looked like myself haha. This was my second spray tan ever and Emily was phenomenal. She was professional and took her time, but also so personable and explained everything, made me feel comfortable and was SO sweet. I bought the 4 pack spray package and I'm really excited to my next appt 🙂

My spray tan with Emily was fantastic! She was so thorough in her pre care, post care, and reminder instructions. She asked several questions to ensure the shade and tone I was looking for were right. During the tan she kept upbeat conversation going and it does not feel awkward at all! She greeted me by name upon arrival and was so friendly and professional, immediately putting me at ease. It is so evident that she is skilled at what she does - the color looks so natural without streaks or stickiness. Her salon is decorated beautifully and the whole experience was so pleasant! I will absolutely be returning. Thanks Emily!

I’ve been a customer of Emily’s for about a year now. She does a really good job making you feel comfortable and welcomed. Additionally, she has went out of her way to accommodate me. I have very fair skin and she does a wonderful job at making me look tan and not orange. I will remain a customer forever! Lol.

I just got my teeth whitened at Bronze Palms and I can not say enough kind things about them. Firstly, Hailey was so freakin' delightful! As soon as I walked in she greeted me by name and welcomed me in to the room. She's a genuinely happy and cheerful person, and professional. She made the process so effortless for me. From the reminder emails to the consultation to the clear and thorough aftercare instructions, it never felt like this was my first time doing this. Everything these amazing women do in Bronze Palms makes you feel like you're living your best life.

We all know a spray tan can feel quite awkward but Emily makes it feel like a walk in the park! So kind, friendly, and great at what she does. My tan always lasts 2 weeks, fades beautifully, and doesn’t feel sticky or smelly whatsoever. Couldn’t recommend more!

So, this is the real deal, ladies. I’ve used Bronze Palms twice now because I’m the “Snow White” type that realized long ago that “working on your tan” is a silly and dangerous pursuit. These gals have the best service - amazing instructions to prep, a lovely, welcoming experience while you’re there, and after care tips that will have you milking that tan for every last drop of that magical potion. For one tropical trip, everyone commented on my beautiful “natural tan,” and one person actually pulled me aside and asked me if I had been “dipped in gold.” What more proof do you need, ladies. Just do it and do it often. After you are sprayed, they dust you in magical bronze pixie dust that will make you fly. In sum, I feel like a million bucks for my small investment and I look like a golden goddess, if I do say so myself. Just go.

This was my first time getting a spray tan and Emily was great! She made me feel super comfortable, and was so sweet and helpful when I accidentally put my disposable bottoms on backwards 😂. Got my spray tan back in August for a wedding, and I got so many compliments on how nice my skin looked. 10/10 definitely recommend Emily and Bronze Palms in general 😊

Emily will take care of you from start to finish and give you the BEST spray tan of your life. (Coming from someone who has had a LOT of spray tans from machines, to at home lotions and mousses, and dozens if not hundreds of airbrush spray tans) No exaggeration, she takes care of all the little details including making sure you are perfectly blended in all of the tricky areas like hands, feet, wrists, ankles etc and you end up with an overall flawless finish. Her spray tans are never orange, they last longer than others and have an even fade. If you need a spray tan in the Bay area…. You are doing yourself a disservice if you don’t see Emily! Truly Campbell’s best.

Emily gave the best spray tan I’ve ever gotten for the domincan republic. I jumped in the ocean several times and was shocked at the integrity of the tan even after that. My go to from then on out for big trips and events. 10/10!

Emily is the best spray tan girl around! She is the sweetest and makes me feel comfortable during every appointment. Her new salon is so cute and clean. Every time I go in for a tan she makes me the best medium shade that makes me feel so confident. The tan is always applied evenly, never is orange and stays on for 2 weeks with proper after care she provides. Go see her to get the BEST SPRAY TAN and feel your BEST!! 🙂

Emily is the best! I have been going to her since July 2021. She makes you feel so comfortable, and my tans ALWAYS look perfect and glowy! She is so good about sending reminder texts and emails with easy-to-follow instructions on helping your tan last. I love that she has such flexible hours too. Thank you, Emily!

Emily is my girl for spray tanning. She is so sweet and makes you feel comfortable from start to finish. She is so honest about what tone will look best…… and I just do what she tells me. 😂 She even reaches out the next day to make sure you are happy with her service. She is the best in the business. 😊

I had the pleasure of being trained by Emily. I had a 4 hour session in which we thoroughly discussed the science of spray tans, how to avoid or correct common pitfalls and much more. She provided in depth knowledge in an extremely professional manner. Emily is so confidant in her ability to spray tan and she provided me so much patience while teaching me. Her business acumen and desire to help other women succeed in their entrepreneurial journeys is one of the reasons I highly recommend Emily. You can find an array of YouTube videos and other online content to help get you started on your spray tan journey, but Emily is a PRO. Her work speaks for itself - absolutely amazing!

I had all of my tans for my wedding festivities done by Emily. She was so sweet and made me feel comfortable from the jump. Her consultations are thorough and she is very detail oriented, giving you the perfect tan tailored to you. My wedding tan looked so natural and the solution didn't transfer at all. I am naturally very pale and I have had orange tans in the past so I am so grateful for Emily! I'll be going to her/referring her out forevermore!

I had another tan booked the day before my vacation, but they had to cancel last minute. I found bronze palms and they were able to get me in within 2 hours of me calling. I’m on day 4 of the tan and it hasn’t faded at all. The color looks like I tanned naturally, and I’ve gotten so many compliments. I definitely will be coming back!

Hands down, the best. Emily is so sweet, I found her originally through Yelp, looked at her instagram and then made an appointment for the next day. She makes you feel super comfortable during the appointment, has good conversations and explains what she is doing. She helps pick the right shade for you and teaches you proper aftercare. Highly recommend Emilys business to anyone looking for a good airbrush spray tan!
