Faye Gets the Spray at Heaven Spa

Published on January 6th 2005.


A birdie had told me that Fantasy Tan had officially landed at Heaven Spa in Didsbury, the spray tan choice of the stars, and being a rather terrible applier of fake tan myself (mmmmm love those brown palms), I for one was not going to miss out on this one. So, donning my Manchester Confidential press hat (and not much else) and digi-cam, I got on my way to the salon.
On arrival I was whisked downstairs for my consultation. This involved checking I had exfoliated the night before, I’d not used moisturisers, etc. and we discussed the shade I wanted to be sprayed. Being fair skinned, I didn’t want anything too dark. There’s a choice of colours to suit your skin tone and we selected the second to lightest available, called Star.
Once the consultation was complete – I was introduced to the booth and a rather attractive pair of black paper knickers and a shower cap for my head. I had previously been asked whether we were “doing your boobs?” to which I had agreed as didn’t want any strap marks, although suddenly became conscious of the digi-cam snapping away! (erm, can I change my mind?)
Standing on a towel in the booth, I was asked to take on various positions, whilst being sprayed with a fine mist of the tanning solution with an air gun. With hands in the air, legs-a-kimbo, one step forward, one step back I thought I was involved in a rather unimpressive holiday dance fresh from a European holiday resort, (the bonus being that I was beginning to look like I’d just got back from one!)
The whole process was done within 15 minutes and gave fantastic results – a natural looking all over tan, without any streaks or patches. I was delighted and left looking sun-kissed, scabbing a lift home, to avoid the Manchester rain (couldn’t go melting could I!)
The tan continues to develop over 12 hours, but unlike other fake tans I’ve encountered, it looked great from the outset, no need to hibernate until the next day for me – so within a couple of hours I was out on the town.
..and I can tell you that clubbing until 4am in the morning in a sweaty nightclub still didn’t damage the tan, and I crawled out of bed to get ready for a wedding, feeling decidedly ill but still looking glowing! Another reason to get a fantasy tan – you can still look alive with a hangover!
So, having been wittily christened, “Faye St Tropez” all weekend, I can thoroughly recommend it! (For the record it’s cheaper than St Tropez and much better)
