It’s finally happening: As the season gives way to sunny skies and balmy temperatures, the first breezy slip dresses, shoulder-baring tanks, and micro-bikinis of summer are about to go into heavy rotation. But while the appeal of a lighter, brighter wardrobe is undeniable, those of us still cowering under a security blanket of sheer sleeve, lightweight cardigan, or ankle-grazing skirt may feel a few fleeting pangs of sartorial separation anxiety. Fortunately, the solution for easing the transition into bare legs and exposed collarbones is simple: a subtle coat of color. Even those of us with complexions that veer closer to “silver minnow” than “golden halo” know the wonders of a strategically applied spray tan, with its ability to hide a multitude of sins. Here, we’ve curated a list of the best salons in the country to take you well beyond the pale.
