I have been to see Tara 3 times now. She is such a pro, gorgeous salon, instant bestie vibe, best colour & longest lasting tans I've ever had. Also offers free next day touch ups on any spots you just want a bit more on. Really love this place.
I wish I would have known about this place sooner! Very professional and the most natural tan and well applied tan I’ve ever had.
Tara is so lovely and helpful...great experience and natural looking tan. Thank you so much.
Tara is the best of the best, can’t recommend anyone more for a beautiful tan that’ll last you and looks natural even when fading away. She’s been kind enough to keep the salon open late for me as I’ve finished work late on occasion and have needed a tan for that weekend. If I could give her 10 stars I would 💕
loved the quick and easy service and the fact that the aftercare is so good free next day touch up if needed, perfect! 💁
most natural looking tan i've had - Tara is the best!! ☺️

I wouldn't go anywhere else for my tan ! Tara does an awesome job every time! She is professional and personable and will go out of her way to accommodate odd times and last minute appointments. I'd recommend Get Faked to anyone !
I have been a regular client for over two years now.. Tara is the most flexible, reliable and consistent business owner I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. She has never once let me down, and I am constantly happy with my tans. By far the best tan in Brisbane. If ever something were to go wrong with my tans, she is more than willing to touch up for free the next day which is always reassuring.. But never need the touch ups! Would highly recommend to anyone and everyone !!!
Tara is so lovely. Best tans lovely new fit out too.

Meet the owners

“Every single one of my clients is already beautiful, inside and out before they even step foot through our door! My job has never been to ‘bring out’ or ‘accentuate’ your beauty. My goal is always to just get out of the way and encourage you to see and live in your innate beauty. Aesthetic skin/beauty treatments are always going to be a luxury, a service we choose and not a mandatory expense like food or rent and I believe that’s exactly how you should feel walking out of a treatment. Walk away from the salon always, with a smile on your face knowing you’ve just taken a little moment out of the week to do something just for you. If you’re walking away after any beauty service with any other feeling, we haven’t done our job right.”

Boss babe Tara is the face of our collective. She will be familiar to most of our OG crew who’ve been following along since the ‘Get Faked Spray Tanning’ days (Feb 2012- Dec 2018). She is the original founding owner of The Cult Collective and has been well known in Brisbane for many years for her friendly, approachable nature as well as her consistency in providing and maintaining the highest quality service and professionalism in spray tanning. As an owner, Tara understands how important it is that every single client is 100% comfortable and happy with their service every single visit. She’s a bit of a control freak and a perfectionist when it comes to putting her name to something… which works out really well for her many clients who trust her every week with their skin, but maybe not so much for her housemates… If you’d like to contact her directly regarding any questions you might have, feel free to contact her via email, you can call/txt the salon mobile, or book online.
