Our freakishly pale skin is proof that we were scared to go outside from November until, well, last week. But now tank-top weather is on the horizon (we swear!), and we know we can’t be looking all Robert Pattinson up in here.
Enter Glowout, a new tanning salon in the West Loop.
For years owner Jennifer Dieas has been the go-to spray-tan pro for Giuliana Rancic, Jenni Pulos (from Bravo’s Flipping Out) and other local celebs. But she decided 2014 was the time to spread her genius to us regular folk.
The one-stop shop offers non-smelly, natural-looking airbrush tans ($50), as well as blowouts ($40), buns and braids ($15) and mani-pedis ($15 to $30).
We tried the signature airbrush tan, during which we stripped down to nada except for a tiny pair of disposable undies. Then Dieas sprayed our bod from head to toe--telling us when to turn if needed.
The next day we woke up with a perfect glow--no orange in sight--and the color lasted for almost two weeks.
Glowout even offers free Champagne and Wi-Fi in the waiting room. You know, so you can tipsily browse Facebook while getting gorgeous.
