About Sally

Tuesday, June 24th, 2008

Sally grew up in England as a very pasty white girl. Throughout her teenage years she experimented with every self tanning cream and potion with varying results. Every year, the shops in the English high streets would be flooded with glorious summer styles (even though it had just rained) and Sally would slap on her self tanner. Since childhood she has had the kind of skin that refused to tan – she just got red and burned.

As a young adult, Sally moved to New York City. Somehow or other she became madly passionate about Ballroom and Latin dancing. Some magazines have written that Sally used to be a professional ballroom dancer – this isn’t actually true – she is an amateur – she loves dancing but is not that brilliant at it…However, her husband is an amazing professional dancer and you can see him in the movie “Mad Hot Ballroom”. (His name is Alex Tchassov).

Now – competitive ballroom dancing has a very interesting aesthetic – you basically have to look really, really tan. Kind of like how in dog shows poodles have to look like topiaries, in ballroom dancing competitions people have to look extra swarthy. As Sally got more and more into ballroom dancing she noticed how even the palest girls were able to morph themselves into exotic bronzed creatures. As she poked around in her research she found that at the average ballroom dancing competition there were all sorts of self tanners available for sale that a normal person waltzing through Sephora or Duane Reade would never have even heard of.

One year (2002 to be precise) Sally was at the world championships for Ballroom dancing in Blackpool England. Sally happened to be reading some trashy magazine and in it was an article about “airbrush tanning”. She had never heard about this process before – and looking down at her ivory thighs, and looking on the dance floor at the cocoa colored girls in skimpy costumes Sally had an “Aha!” moment. She was determined to get some airbrush tanning for herself and was sure it might be a brilliant business idea for her to take an airbrush tanning machine to all of the dance competitions she visited.

As soon as she got back to New York she tried to find a place to get an airbrush tan. It didn’t exist so she started doing research up the kazoo. One month later Sally had opened a tiny salon and true to her plan spent most weekends scurrying around America to one dance competition or another. At first she was using a commercially available airbrush formula – however it was highly perfumed and made her sick. Back to the drawing boards she went – and working with a laboratory she came up with her own exclusive formula.

Sally called her salon Brazil Bronze Glow Bar. Everyone asks her if she has some connection with Brazil – sadly, Sally’s only connection with Brazil is that she wishes she looked like Giselle Bundchen and she enjoys drinking capirinas. The idea behind Brazil Bronze is that Sally understands what it feels like to be super white and that sometimes it is fun to have a little color, live out a fantasy, feel like the girl splashing though the waves in a commercial. She actually thinks that white skin is gorgeous – but sometimes it is fun to play with a different look.

Over the years Sally has sprayed many people. She remains really passionate about trying to perfect the techniques of airbrush tanning. To Sally the most important thing about giving someone a spray tan is to listen to what they want and to try and understand the picture that someone has in their head.

Sally invented “The Sculpted Tan” where lighter and darker shades are used to give the body a more toned and sculpted look.

Sally invented “the Cellulite Annihilator” caffeine, glycolic and copper peptides are used along with self tanning in order to reduce the appearance of cellulite.

Sally has sprayed her clients for The Oscars, The Emmy’s, The Tony’s, The MTV awards, Saturday Night Live to name a few events. She has sprayed for TV and movies including the movie “Shall We Dance” – this was especially fun as it was a movie about ballroom dancing. Sally loves her work because it allows her to help people feel more beautiful and comfortable in their own skin. As a woman who has had two children herself she really understands how it feels when you are feeling down on yourself – and it is a huge pleasure to be able to make other people feel good, and like maybe they could feel better in their swim suit…!!

Sally remains avidly into ballroom dancing – she is married with two little girls named Georgie and Charlie.

In 2002 we opened our doors in Soho as the very first salon in New York City specializing in spray tanning. Our goal was to give our clients the most perfect fake tan humanly possible!

We understand that in order to create a great spray tan the most important step in the process is to ask you how you want to look. ‘Tan’ means many things to many people. Some people just want a very light conservative glow while others prefer a darker look. What suits one person may not be right for another.

To help ensure you leave our salon with just the right shade of color:

We ask you what shade you’d like your tan to be (a healthy glow, light, medium, dark, or extra dark). It is quite possible to do different shades on different parts of the body – such as a light tan on the upper body and face and a medium tan on the legs. Just let us know what your preference is!
We advise you on what shade we think is realistic for your skin tone.
We collaborate with you to create a look that is perfect for you.

We will customize your spray tan to your exact preferences. Want more coverage on your legs and butt and just a touch on your face? No problem – all you have to do is let us know. This is the big difference between a custom spray tan and the one-size-fits-all booths – we are more than happy to accommodate your requests. We can even spray you in such a way that cellulite is minimized and your body looks more toned and sculpted.
