Brun’s Four Areas of Expertise

Undergoing significant renovation in 2010/2011, we now serve our clients even better with funky heritage space, warm service, room for just you or a party of girlfriends and loved ones, we are self-care and wellness with a focus on education and results.

Waxing

We’ve made our name in the salon industry locally on our waxing – book your appointment today to see why. Our Brazilian is sure to give some smooth results, with every other area of the body from brow to toe satisfied as well.

UV Tanning

Our UV equipment is regularly maintained, always clean, and high efficiency. That means more tan in less time. Our goal is to guide everyone, from a novice to seasoned tanner, towards their goal of a safe, gradual, and natural-looking tan.

Sunless Tanning

Many guests’ best-kept secret – their Brun airbrush tan! Let us give you a custom manual airbrush that looks better than the real thing so you feel red carpet ready for your big event, wedding, or vacation.

Waxing is never fun… unless you go and see Krista. I was always hesitant to get waxed (let’s be honest… who thinks that would be a fun thing to do?!?!), but Krista came highly recommended from a couple friends so I decided to RIP the bandaid off and just try it. She made an experience that could have been mentally scarring into relaxing and fun? Seriously. We laugh, talk and I am almost always there to the very last minute because I just adore her. Go see her! Right now. Seriously. Just go.

UV Tanning

We offer a range of options to suit your tanning preference: For those looking for a quick drop in tan or a way to re-energize themselves, we offer three stand up booths (Sun Capsule VHR). For those clients looking for a few minutes to hide away and relax, we offer one deluxe lay down bed (Affinity 500-Turbo power). All equipment runs on 12 minute maximums, is cleaned after each and every use, and is maintained and bulb upgraded regularity.

Tan Responsibly

We encourage you to keep your skin moisturized and protected at all times. For this reason, we also carry a selection of body moisturizers and sunless tanners. While tanning in indoor tanning equipment is a controlled environment, outside is not so be sure to wear sunscreen (also available at the shop).

UV Free Tanning

Brun Body Bar has created a great reputation for its manual airbrush tanning service, having been featured in the Times Colonist and on-air with 107.3 Kool FM. With eleven years experience behind the airbrush gun, our top-of-the-line technique and high-quality sunless solution has allowed us to perfect the most natural-looking, even tan that keeps our many airbrush clients coming back regularly.

Our service is different from the rest because our technicians are well-trained in

  • Invisible transitions – even golden colour all around
  • Hand, nail and feet protection – making sure no telltale tanner ends up on palms, cuticles, or soles of feet
  • Customization – working around existing tan lines or accommodating special preferences (I.e. lighter face, darker body)
  • Expert home care advice – what to do once you’ve left the salon

I can’t UV tan because of childhood sun-burns, and after a bad experience with store-bought tanning lotion (don’t do it ladies!!), I finally went to Brun and am so glad I did. The natural colour and seemless application even had me confident enough for a spray-tan just two days before my wedding. Now, you’ll never find me donning a short dress without stopping by Brun first!! (Plus, it makes me look like I have calve muscles which means I no longer have to go to the gym! Ha!)

About the Airbrush

It Lasts 6-10 days

We can manipulate color tones from a sun kissed glow to a dark tam. The solution is an Aloe Vera base combined with an active ingredient DHA. DHA is derived from sugar cane. DHA reacts with the proteins of the skin and turns it brown.

A technician applies the solution through an airbrush gun. The appointment takes approximately 30 minutes. There is a some what delicate period for the first 6 hours while it is developing. So that means no water contact, no rubbing and no sweating!

PRIOR TO YOUR APPOINTMENT

Clean skin is the best! Shower and shave in the morning before appointment or just before. Do not put any lotion, oils or moisturizers on face or body after showering. If arriving after work please help yourself to face cloths in our bathroom to take off makeup and moisturizers.

Exfoliation is the key for an even long-lasting Sunmist tan. Exfoliate 3-4 days leading up to your appointment or just before. Please stay away from oil based exfoliates.

WHAT TO BRING WITH YOU

Loose dark clothing that buttons up, fits over overhead, or zips up is best. Also please bring flip flops.

AFTER APPLICATION

Do not shower for a minimum of 6 hours after application. Refrain from toners/exfoliates. Keep skin moisturized especially after the first shower.

EXTENDER LOTIONS

Prolong lotion will extend your tan as it has a low amount of DHA (tanning ingredient). Ideal for blending, extending or mending.

REMEMBER YOUR SKIN DOES NOT HAVE A RESISTANCE TO THE SUN SO WEAR PLENTY OF SPF.


Even, golden colour is applied by a technician, with fully customizable colour from head to toe. Special care is taken to protect colour sensitive areas. Perfect for sunny vacations, weddings, and all over colour correction.

  • 1 session $55
  • 2 sessions $95
  • 4 sessions (4th is free) $165
  • Half Body 1 session $32 : Upper half of body, from face to waist. This is a popular option when wearing clothing that exposes arms, chest and back but covers legs.
  • Legs 1 session $23 : Ideal for clients who are more comfortable with colour just on the legs for cocktail dresses or just to get a bit of colour in this tough to tan area. From bikini line to toes.

Great for everyone, from those trying out an airbrush for the first time, to those who wear sunscreen on the face consistently, to those who have skin too sensitive for much product. We apply solution on the face with a seamless transition into the décolletage area. This is even a great option for someone who self-tans the rest of their body on their own.
