Our story & team

Palms beauty bungalow

Palms Beauty Bungalow, formerly Palms Tanning & Lacquer Lounge, was created with the intention to bring something different to the beauty industry. Tired of the typical nail salon and franchise spray tanning salons treating you like a number or dollar sign. Come hang out in our private little babe cave with us and experience the difference.

When you come to Palms, we build a genuine relationship with you. We believe every client should leave as a friend with a bomb spray tan & gorgeous nails to brag about. Every. Damn. Time.

The space is small and private where it's just a one-on-one, uninterrupted experience with us. Clients are welcome to speak freely and feel totally at ease. Many clients love coming in to a safe space during their appointment where you don't need to apologize for your stretch marks, scars, skin, cellulite, small boobs, big boobs, or anything  else that makes them a woman. We've got you, girl! Let loose. Chill out. Be yourself, the best version of it.

We understand that spray tanning is a vulnerable, weird experience at first.  I can assure you that we make it as comfortable as possible for you! Coming from a plastic surgery background (& as a new mom!), there is ABSOLUTELY no body shaming here, Babe! We work with you and your comfort level first and foremost. Good vibes, only! We promote body positivity of all sizes, shapes, color, age and everything in between. Come experience a Palms Spray Tan Self Love Session!

My hope is that Palms is the salon you've always searched for.  I hope it is refreshing to come to a salon where your technician knows you by name and tailors your nails or spray tan to your specific desire or needs. My goal is to really just leave a positive impact on everyone I meet, promote self love, and have you leave with a smile each time you visit.

We pride ourselves on providing clients with customized nail and body care while maintaining the highest level of cleanliness  available. Let's be besties now, okay!?
