Ah, the dreaded first summer tan. It fries through your pasty outer layer like an intense double oven would, leaving you to look more like a roasted bell pepper than a mermaid from the Mediterranean sea. But what if there was a way to avoid this whole skin cancer inducing fiasco, without waning in color next to your friends? That, ladies and gents, is the beauty of a spray tan.

We've rounded up a comprehensive list of spray tan parlors in Miami that will let you lather on the SPF carefree. Yes, it's artificial color that will wash out within the week, but no one needs to know that except you and the lady at the front desk. Just please, whatever you do, make sure to place your shower cap high up on your hairline. Not doing so would be a dead giveaway.

Note, these salons are in no particular order of ranking, simply arranged from North to South. If you have any others, feel free to let us all know in the comments. Because everyone should feel like Gisele at least for one day out of the year.
