About us

SunSations Tanning Salon opened on April 14, 2002 in Blue Ridge, GA. A second location in Blairsville opened 6 years later. Since then, SunSations has added Airbrushing to their list of services, and now operates as SunSations Tanning & Airbrush Salon exclusively in Blairsville, GA.

The salon has a great tropical vibe that customers love! Each room is named after tropical getaways like Jamaica, Cozumel, Key West, Maui, Cancun, Belize, and Bahamas. Owner, Jennifer, implemented a unique addition to the salon: a key chain palm tree. When a customer travels and purchases a key chain from their trip, they come in and hang it on the tree which is displayed at the front desk of the salon.

Tanning bed types

SunSations offers 7 tanning beds so that customers may have a wide variety to choose from depending on their tanning needs. The Solaris Plus Bronzing is a popular bed which offers a high UVA to UVB ratio. SunSations also has a 12 minute 52 bulb turbo bed for maximum bronzing power in minimum time. There are 5 SunStar 15 minute beds which also include facial tanners, and 2 Solaris Plus beds.

Airbrush tanning

“Airbrush tanning is a wonderful product that gives quick color for those that are going on a trip or to a party”, Jennifer, owner of SunSations said. It is also a great alternative for those who love a sun-kissed glow but who are sensitive to the sun. All airbrush tanning at SunSations is done by hand by Lindy, who has over 8 years of experience.

Keeping everything clean

Jennifer prides herself in having a very clean salon with a fun and friendly atmosphere. Bulbs in all of the beds are changed routinely and as needed so that customers are able to consistently maximize their tans. “My customers have made SunSations what it is today, and I will be here as long as I have my wonderful customers.”

Tanning products

SunSations carries Australian Gold, Designer Skin, Fiesta Sun and Swedish Beauty products. These lotions are hand-picked and tested by the owner before she will carry them on her shelves, so that she can ensure she is offering only the best products to her customers. She also takes care to choose items that are affordable for any budget so that all customers can enjoy the benefits of these great items.
