Our Clients

Breanne founded what is now Shade in 2012 with a simple goal: Share the sun-soaked ambiance of her Maui origins. Doing so with an airbrush tan technique that is not just a healthier alternative to the sun, but also appears authentic and is practically effortless.

Our Venue

What we look for is artists...those with an eye for detail and a passion for beauty. And we support these artists with months of hands-on training and professional seminar work to consistently deliver the signature technique that defines us.

This place is amazing! The tan is so natural and beautiful, it's not sticky while it dries and it doesn't smell. I have been to so many places in sf and I finally found one that does tans like celebrities get in Hollywood. They also somehow manage to keep the ankles, elbows and knees perfect.

The spray tans here are true art! My tan has always looked amazing - the artists take the time to make sure it is just perfect. I recommend this spot to all my friends and will continue coming.

Shade is the most accommodating, and they are very professional at their craft. I really appreciate how natural our tans look. I keep getting tons of compliments that I look more fit after the airbrush.
