About Diane

Where it All Started

Growing up in New Jersey in the 1980s, tanning was an Olympic sport! My obsession started in high school when my friends and I would spend our days in tanning beds or at the beach slathered in baby oil and iodine, trying to attain the darkest tans possible. While I look back at those days with fondness, I learned the hard way that my choices had ramifications. Fast-forward 25 years and my skin damage, age spots, wrinkles and yearly trips to the dermatologist for cancer screenings made me look for a safer way to tan. Over the years, I have tried every tanning product known to man. I’ve done the scary booths, the at-home solutions, and have spent countless hours pursuing the elusive perfect glow.

Over time, I did extensive research, took a certification course, and started spraying my friends and family. Since then, I have never looked back. I quit my 23-year career as a travel agent and started Bronze Age Spray Tanning. You will not find anyone more passionate about tanning than me. I use the best solutions out there, period. They are vegan, not tested on animals and contain natural and organic ingredients. The colors aren’t artificial and won’t leave you feeling tacky or dry out your skin.

What Our Clients Are Saying

Amazing First Time
Alka Patel | Bronze Age Client

Diane is incredible. A true professional, detailed and meticulous, her goal was to make sure I felt comfortable, understood the process and knew what to expect. Since this was my first spray tan ever, I appreciated her thoroughness. Forgive the pun, but her business is a well-oiled machine! The process, the instructions- everything was a well-honed science. I had never entertained getting a spray tan before. However, after meeting Diane and having such a great experience, I will definitely be back! Thanks so much, Diane!
Prepping for My Wedding
Kelly Krisza | Bronze Age Client

Diane is amazing! I am prepping for my wedding - she originally called me to discuss the normal process prior to the wedding day. We then did a trial first and she was great! She explained the whole process, prepared me prior to arriving, and listened to the type of color I wanted. She is super detail orientated, I have had plenty of spray tans prior and no one took the care she has. The next day she reached out to check how the color has progressed and if I was satisfied. Don’t think twice about going to Diane!

I recommend Diane 1000000% to anyone. As a first-timer of a spray tan, I was nervous about getting a spray tan, I was worried about the entire process. But when I met Diane, I instantly felt super comfortable, she is the sweetest, most welcoming, and personable person for this job, you can just tell she truly cares and wants to best for her customers. I walked away SHOCKED at how natural and beautiful the spray tan was, seriously looks like I was in Jamaica for a week. Can’t thank her enough!
My Tan is Beautiful

A friend recommended Bronze Age several years ago when I saw her tan and it looked beautiful. I finally had the opportunity to go last week. It was a very good experience. Everything was very clean and organized. Diane gave detailed instructions for pre and post tan. She followed up the next day with a text message to make sure everything was good. The price was very reasonable. My tan is beautiful. It isn’t orange like my experience at other local places. It also doesn’t have as strong an odor as my previous spray tans. She was on time for the appointment. It was raining that day, so she even walked me to my car with an umbrella to make sure I didn’t get wet and mess it up. I couldn’t ask for a better service from the experience to the finished product.
Love Diane!

Love Diane!!! I have never gone spray tanning before but was recommended by a friend to contact Bronze Age Tanning. I called originally to book one appt for my boyfriend and me for a wedding we were going to be in. There was only one slot that worked, and I asked if my boyfriend could come at the same time, and she immediately said yes and that she would squeeze him in. I was so grateful! I ended up doing a trial before the wedding tan and I am obsessed. I love the clear direction of what I needed to do and what to do after. My tan held up longer than I anticipated simply by following the directions. Diane is so personable and helpful! She answered my call or texts so fast! I haven’t stopped sharing my experience with friends.

This was my first experience with spray tanning, and after reading all the amazing reviews I felt confident and comfortable going to Bronze Age. I was not disappointed; Diane is such a joy to deal with. She explained the process down to the littlest detail. And the day after she contacted me to check on how my tan was turning out. I will definitely be going back.
The Results Are so Natural
Tracy Peduto | Bronze Age Client

From the initial phone call to the day after my appointment, when she followed up to see if I was happy with my results, Diane was a complete professional. It was my first spray tan, so she took the time to explain to me the process and what to do to achieve my best results. The results are so natural and gave me the sun-kissed glow I was looking to achieve. It’s obvious that Diane takes pride in her profession and wants everyone to feel wonderful. I will for sure be visiting Diane in the future before my vacations and special occasions.

I recently had the best tanning experience with Diane. I got the "bye bye cellulite tan" and it was fantastic! She made me feel so comfortable and her tanning room was so adorable. It smelled like caramel! She was so professional and provided everything I needed. I am so happy I found her and I highly highly recommend Diane and her services.
