We believe that whatever your skin tone and type you will look great, but for many of us having tanned skin gives us a confidence boost and adds a healthy glow to sometimes otherwise pasty skin.  When done correctly results are long lasting and create a beautifully even skin tone.


To ensure you get the most from your spray tan, we’ve created a pre-tan checklist to help guide you through the tanning process.

1 - If you have not experienced a spray tan in Urban Retreat before or within the last 6 months, you are required to come in for a patch test at least 24 hours prior to your appointment.

2 - The evening before your spray tan, exfoliate your skin thoroughly paying particular attention to dry areas.

3 - Make sure you do not wax at least 48 hours or shave at least 24 hours prior to your tan.

4 - Ensure your skin is free from self-tan, perfume, deodrant, balms and oils before your spray tan.

5 - Please wear loose, dark clothing to your appointment.

The Tanning Studio By James Read

Inspired by the healthy-looking, honey-hued tans of the 1970s, James Read tan works with the skin’s natural tones to create a realistic, healthy-looking glow. A bespoke, one of a kind application method is used to create James’ famous layering technique and achieve the most natural-looking, long-lasting tan.

The Signature Tan

Following a consultation with your therapist, this customised tan, suited to all skin tones, will be adapted to suit your desired results. Your tan will last for up to 5 days.
