Typically, we feel adamantly that tanning salons are a major no-no. However, an airbrush-only tanning salon is something we could totally get into. The delectably named Butterscotch aims to make you look like exactly like the candy, but maybe even more delectable, by focusing on airbrush tanning, makeup, and brow sculpting — instead of sending you to the crisper to fry.
Beautician Jenna Zucker and her partner Mar Fujimoto (of Venice's Studio Noi) aim to create an intimate environment where healthy glows, not Oompa Loompas, are celebrated. Oh, and while we wouldn't recommend keeping your mouth open during the treatment, Butterscotch's treatments claim to be 100% organic — a word so rarely used to describe anything tanning-related.
