You can spot a Goldie girl anywhere. She’s the woman sashaying around town with gorgeous sun-kissed skin, glowing from the outside-in.

There’s something about having a Goldie tan that makes you feel like the queen bee. After opening their doors in Fulham and Malvern, word got out fast that Goldie Studios is unlike any other. And I one hundred percent understand why… the tans are sensational!

Full credit goes to owner Hayley Lloyd who noticed something was missing in Adelaide. “I’ve always been tan-obsessed but I couldn’t find anywhere in SA that felt really special and inclusive, somewhere that empowers women of all shapes and sizes, and also offers a variety of tans — from a sun-kissed glow to a deep bronze. So, I created a studio myself,” says Hayley.

Inspired by The Hamptons and Byron Bay, Goldie Studios oozes a beach holiday vibe and is a breath of fresh air in the beauty industry.

Hayley’s mission from day one was to help make women feel confident stripping off in front of her, regardless of their shape or size. “Women are so mean to their bodies. One in three apologises to me for the way she looks! Us mums might have big floppy boobs now — but they just fed a human, so it’s nothing to be ashamed of,” smiles Hayley.

As most of us know, sometimes you just need a little pick-me-up and something that’s not permanent or expensive — and that’s where Goldie comes in.

Offering over 30 shades of colour, Hayley and her team are trained to match the best colour with your skin tone. “You should never leave a salon looking orange like an Oompa-Loompa,” laughs Hayley.

Apparently, an orange looking spray tan can be caused by one of two things — the wrong shade for your skin tone OR the wrong person applying it. Hayley has been tanning for donkey’s years and she’s surrounded by a team of professional well-trained Goldie gals so you know you’re always going to be in great hands, every time.
