About Me


Francesca Amber Hi, I'm Francesca and I run Never Too Tanned from Islington, London. I'm very passionate about spray tanning as my sister developed skin cancer in 2011 so I wanted to find a quick, easy and very effective way to get a great tan! I thankfully found that with the fantastic spray tan brand, Sienna X which I now use exclusively. I offer clients a private, not rushed and informal spray tan experience leaving you with a fab (and SAFE!) tan! I am a popular choice of spray tanner with celebrities and corporate clients such as MTV and IMG Models due to my discreet, private tanning base and central location. I'm not a stressful, overworked one-in-one-out salon and I find that's what people like. I look forward to tanning you soon!
