If you've never been in a tanning or beauty salon before, it can be a little bit daunting - especially for the male species. But, don't be scared - especially if you're coming to Topaz! We can't be sure, but we really do think we're the most friendly, relaxed and informal salon around. One thing's for sure - you will be made welcome and shown exactly what to do so you're comfortable to enjoy your tanning session.
Signing up for tanning in Topaz is simple. You'll have to fill out a short registration card (for insurance purposes and so we can send you a free birthday sunbed!) and then we'll go through whether you want to do PAYGO minutes, or you want to purchase a course. Buying a course is a lot cheaper than PAYGO, especially your first one which you get for £25. So, say you buy a 65 minute course, we'll then ask you a few questions about whether you're tanning for health reasons (eczema or aches & pains maybe), to keep a tan, to get your skin prepared for a holiday or to get a tan. We'll also discuss tanning lotions and advise on how many minutes you should start with (no, you don't use the whole 65 minutes in one go :D ). Most newbies will start with 3 or 6 minutes. We'll show you how to use the sunbeds (they're simple) and you're ready to go. We keep your card at the salon and record how many minutes you use each session. Each time you come in, just say your name (the cards are filed under first names) and off you go again to relax in the rays.
So, don't be scared, come on in - we don't bite. In fact, we're a nice bunch really x
