Yeah but you call to ask their prices they want you to come in of course for the hard sell which is BAD business to me. Had my daughter call and they wouldn't answer her question about packages and promos. And I noticed no one here who has posted lists the prices they paid which makes me assume these posts are shrills. I could care less what the guy looks like (he's Hispanic btw)or whether he graduated from Mill Creek (loser school). I want a website and prices!

I get a spray at Unique almost every week. It always looks great. sometimes if your wearing some perfume or if you put on a lotion before you go in there it wont work well on your skin. I usually go straight out of the shower up there. If you had any problems Im sure they would fix it for free. They are great people up there. cuz it sounds like it worked just not as dark as you had hoped.
I agree, I have received spray tans before and you just need to know what you are doing before just stopping by a salon. You have to exfoliate, and use no lotions or deodorant. Afterwards they say not to shower for 6 hours, but I waited 12 hours. You should wear baggy clothing and be as cool as possible, sweat can remove just applied airbrush tanning. As with any self tanner, tanning lotion, or spray tan; you will lose color after showering. You can't use any oli-based lotion because it deactivates and you will lose your color. You just need to know what you're doing.

You may want to think about adding their facebook page then. And, considering that all Gwinnett county schools were the number one schools in the nation until 2009 you may also want to rethink your '(loser school)' comment. And clearly the hispanic comment had to do with jealousy, considering you or your daughter want a tan, you both clearly don't have one. Enjoy getting burnt and paying way too much at other salons, which I have tried most, it is great to know none of the other unique tan salon goers will not have to deal with any ignorance.

I absolutely LOVE Unique Tan! I have been a loyal customer for some time now. I feel like family, best tanning salon in all dacula area, in my opinion! Sweet understandable owner. If I am running late from work or etc and I call they stay open and wait for me and let me tan. It is the smallest things like that that make me feel special and well cared for. I would recommend to everyone and give it five stars!!!

I have three daughters(which all like to tan). Believe me it gets expensive taking all of us to a salon!! Well i have tried all the competition;Cabana Tan, Outback, Tango, aris. Unique tan is the most affordable and my girls say they have never gotten this kind of color after only a few visits! The guy behind the counter was very nice and knowledgable. He helped us through everything. This place definitly needs to be on your list if you are a tanner. I am glad this place is open!
Try not to tan often. Not good for ur skin

Yeah they are SO nice I got a spray tan done for a dinner I was going to one evening and made a huge dumb mistake, but I went to give my dog a bath and got my arms wet:/ not soaking wet but their were definitely spots from the water drops. Anyways, I was FREAKING out but fortunately it was not too late and I went back and they fixed it for free and it ended up looking great. They really know what they are doing and stand behind their word like they say. I was scared they would not fix it or be mean like some places where I have experienced that but they really are so sweet.They welcomed me like family or a close friend would and really make me feel comfortable. I love Unique Tan!

I have gone to unique tab many times since it
Opened. The prices are great, it's clean, and you can tell they really take pride in themselves as a whole. I got a spray tan for my wedding in June and it was the best spray tan I've ever gotten. The color soaked into my skin beautifully and it looked so natural!
I also want to say for those of you critizing the owner. I have known him since high school and he is an awesome person who has done so well for himself. Why bash him? As for the moron who called him a pedophile... That's an awful claim that has no merrit and you should be ashamed of your self. To you, I'll just say GOD BLESS!( and we all in the south really knows what that means in this context)

Not sure how these comments on yp are good ones! This salon is bunch of young teens that try to.appear as if they know what theyre talking about! It cost Entirely to much! Not to mention the employees are clasic "jersey shore" type air heads!
Overall i found 24hr.tan to be best in area! Prices, beds, customer service and 24hr access sold me! Cant ask for more!!!

I have to disagree. I love unique tan, and have been tanning there a little after it first opened. I've never seen "young jersey shore air heads" working there. That is hilarious. That's like saying whoever is tan or works at a tanning salon is "jersey shore" or an "oomploompa". People amuse me! I know the owner is a successful young man in his MID 20's , a young lady that works there is about 22 which I believe they're related, by the way I love that they are SO sweet, and another blonde lady that is in her late 20's or in her 30's, I believe. How are those "teenagers"? Another case of speaking before you think. In my opinion, don't read nonsense like the kind above me, just go see for yourself:)

Last comment, promise:), but I'm so glad I have moved back to the Dacula area. There were no good tanning salons where I was living/working at. I've missed the unique salon. Plus, I am back with family and friends! Some reviews I've read on this site are crazy. Seriously, go see for yourselves about anything and come up with your own ideas or thoughts, like me.Everyone have a great day!

Unique Tan is a GREAT tanning salon! I had tried to set up a new membership with 24 Hour Tanning in Dacula, but 40 minutes after they were supposed to be open (11:40am on a Saturday), there was still no one there and no one answering the number listed on the door. Got online and saw numerous, similar bad reviews and found Unique Tan. Super friendly, knowledgeable, helpful... and open when they say they are!:)(p.s. I have no idea why this site shows me as being in Raleigh... I'm in Dacula).

The salon is amazing , but the guy behind the counter is a creep !! I think if he was more professional instead of flirty , it would be an enjoyable place to go too. Always a different girl behind the counter with him , makes things awkward . Love Vanessa , always a joy to see her there. Time for a change

I have been going to a differetn tanning bed for almost two months,and everything was fine. I went to Unique tanning 2 times and I got these white bumps all over me. My body was burning, but i wasnt sunburnt. Come to find out their tanning beds gave me a fungus all over my body.

I don't get what those last two reviews are about. The young tanning guy has always been completely professional and makes it obvious he cares about his work. The owners made a great choice in hiring him. As far as cleanliness, that place is always clean it sounds like that "angry" person picked up a disease at the other place she went for two months and after "2 times" blames unique? I was impressed with this place from the moment I walked in. I suggest you walk in and check it out and see for yourself.
