Our Melbourne Guide

It’s no secret that Naked Tan is stocked in some amazing salons worldwide, but for today we thought we would narrow in on Australia’s city of culture- Melbourne! Coming into the festive season we thought we would highlight some great things to do (and salons to go to!).

Reminder: Below are just some of our amazing salons that happen to be close to popular events, but we have so many more. So, always call or check our salon locator if you are looking to find a salon that stocks Naked Tan. Click Here to Check It Out.

 –

1.Off the races? Head down to Flemington and meet the team at Vanity Hair and Beauty Salon. The best accessories a girl can have for an event are a smile and tan (We may be biased).

 2.Speaking from experience, you must attend the inflatable regatta! This event is run several times a year, the next one being February 24th. Basically, you float down the Yarra river in an inflatable donut, you can bring drinks and snacks, and it’s just a lovely way to spend the day. If you are wanting to be nice and bronzed while you are out in the sun, we have several salons close to the river, like Glam Beauty & Nails or Utopia Skin Solutions.

 3.The Australian Open! An iconic Aussie event that brings in hundreds of thousands of visitors. Watching the greats battle it out is an experience not to be missed. If you haven’t been before, be warned, people get dolled up for this event (in hopes of stealing Federer’s heart?). This is a great excuse to pop on a tan, wear your best white dress and enjoy an unbelievable event.

 4. If you fancy a relaxing weekend indoors, we would suggest staying at a resort. They are one stop-shops for pampering, whether it be a tan, a massage or a sauna. If a little bit of you time in the big smoke sounds good, we have a few great resorts in the city, one that is in the CBD is One Spa RACV City Club Melbourne.

 5. If you are anything like us, you are always looking for an excuse to get dolled up. Well there is no better excuse in Melbourne than the Opera. This November you could be haunted by the phantom of the opera at Her Majesty’s theatre. Located close by is Waxology South Melbourne for all of your glam needs.


There is always millions of things to do in a city buzzing with art, culture, music and events. Take the time these holidays to visit our friends in Victoria, we assure you, you will not be disappointed.

Happy Tanning Melbournites!

Our Guide to Glow!

The word of the moment in the beauty world is GLOW! Everyone wants to have that natural radiance that’s all over Instagram. We have some hot tips on how to get that ‘I just got back from the Maldives’ glow!

 

– Beautiful skin starts from within- so drink plenty of water!

– Make sure to moisturise after every shower and before and after tanning. Our Crème de la crème is made of Shea Butter that will leave your skin super hydrated.

– Use our Body Exfoliator to gently buff away your dead skin. This will make your complexion appear brighter and will prepare you to apply your tan.

– At least 12 hours after exfoliating choose a self-tan product and apply, but don’t forget to moisturise after to lock in your tan!

– You can also use a gradual tanner to give your skin a natural sun-kissed look all year round.

– One of our favourite product for creating beautiful dewy skin is our instant tan. It contains Mica, which is a natural material that gives off an iridescent shimmer. You can apply it all over your body!

– For a subtle look, apply the instant tan to; the tops of your cheekbones, under your brow ridge, along your cupid’s bow, on your collarbones and your shoulders. This will highlight your features and is a fun way to add some subtle glamour.

– Chuck on some lip balm to top it all off.

 

A little luminosity is an easy way to make you feel better about yourself, and these tips will work for any woman, any skin tone. Let us know in the comments If you have any of your own tips!

How to become a stand out beauty salon!

 

Are you stuck for ideas on how to ensure your salon is staying competitive with other beauty salons near you? Beauty trends are continually evolving and changing, as are the beauty products your clients are demanding from your service.

 

Naked Tan has a range of posters and POS assists available for you to make your beauty salon interesting and engaging. You can use posters to help promote other services or beauty products that you sell in your beauty salon. When completing a treatment this is a great opportunity for your clients to look around and read your posters sparking conversation. Next time you place an order be sure to ask the friendly Naked Tan team about their range of POS.

 

Loyalty programs and competitions are a great way to ensure you are engaging with your current customers but also bringing awareness to your salon amongst other potential clients. Sometimes collaborating with another brand or businesses can also help broaden your network.

 

Ensuring you are showcasing your beauty work online and interactive with your online community is essential when pushing your beauty salon out to the community. Taking before and after photos, or small videos through a treatment builds excellent digital content as it shows your client first hand what they should expect from your beauty service. Often customers will see your work online and come to your beauty salon because of this.
