The Spray Tan at Rita Hazan: Color Me Impressed!

Ghostly. Stark white. White as paper. Color it any way you want, because that's the hue of yours truly! Well, unless I sit in the sun, in which case I turn lobster-red before even 15 minutes have passed. And with all the horrible facts out there about tanning and skin cancer, why would I do that to myself in the first place? But now I've discovered the way to look as golden brown as the next girl -- and her name is Anna Stankiewicz. That's right, this beauty chick found true heaven recently when I visited Anna at New York's Rita Hazan Salon for a little thing I like to call ... spray tanning heaven.

She's sprayed everyone from Jessica Simpson to Jennifer Esposito, and now I can count myself among her loyal followers. If you're looking for natural-looking, sun-kissed, absolutely gorgeous skin, you must book an appointment with Anna immediately.

Now having someone stand in front of your (practically) naked body with a spray tanning gun isn't the most easy thing in the world. But Anna immediately puts you right at ease with her absolutely flawless and winning personality. This girl is seriously so easy to talk to, you'll forget you're standing in front of her with no clothes on! And precise doesn't even begin to cover how wonderful a job she does. She's so thorough, making sure you're covered from head to toe in just the right shade of brown (this pale beauty chick went with medium tan) -- and the formula is 70 percent organic, which I found interesting. She even goes so far as to put you in a variety of yoga-and-dance-like poses to ensure your hard-to-reach spots (like the crook of your elbow and back of your knees) are sprayed evenly. Then as she turns on some small fans to dry you off, she'll go over you with makeup sponges to even out the damp spots, lotion up your nails to make sure they don't turn orange and finish off with a dusting of baby powder to lock in the color.

Now, services like this don't come cheap -- appointments will run you $85 for full body and an extra $10 for contouring -- but trust me when I say it's worth it! I seriously felt like I visited St. Barth's over the weekend and came back with the best tan ever. And if you only want that gorgeous glow on part of your body, that's possible too ($40 for half body, $40 for just legs, $20 for face and decolletage, and $10 for face only). Anna, I'm a client for life! Become one yourself by calling the Rita Hazan Salon at 212-734-4757. You'll be a convert in minutes!
