Known to many as the man with the golden gun (he has his own custom-made spray gun á la 007), James is the go-to glow giver for A-listers, glossies and advertisers worldwide. It’s his personal service, however, that really makes this talented tanner shine.

Based at W London’s luxurious Away Spa, James tailors every tanning experience to meet each individual client’s needs, skin type and lifestyle. Believe us, this man has thought of EVERYTHING. After a detailed consultation James will blend a bespoke shade for each client before expertly detailing areas of shadow and light to sculpt the body, enhance your natural figure and impart that elusive and all-important golden radiance. Never orange, always even and miraculously slimming, the Harknett tan will have your nearest and dearest wondering exactly what you’ve had done to look so fresh and healthy. Don’t worry, we won’t tell…

His ingenious tanning menu allows you to achieve a chic city tan, whether you’re aiming for a sultry Spanish flush or a light summer-in-Manhattan hue. Choose from a super natural, barely there New-York, a Kate Moss-inspired London, a beautiful, burnished Barcelona or a luscious, J Lo-esque Santa Fe. Each tan is finished to perfection and fades flatteringly over time, and if you don’t fancy a scrum on the tube pre or post glow then James will come to you. He’s pretty much our perfect man.

Being an ambassador for Sienna X and Garnier Ambre Solaire, as well as a regular makeover maestro at awards ceremonies, James is an industry leader and definitely one for the little black book, come rain or shine.

My Latest News

Loved my lunchtime chat on Get The Gloss. Thanks ladies.  June 6th 2014 12:43:01


I am so thrilled to be a part of Get The Gloss.I was very happy to meet Susannah from GtG last night and give her a bespoke tan at my studio in the W Hotel. As well as a busy tanning schedule at the hotel my ambassador work with Sienna X keeps me very busy.We have just launched The New Bronzing Mousse with added Q10. The mousse itself is the best I have ever used.It does not liquify on the skin and has a similar consistency to a hair mouse or shaving foam. so you have total control when applying it. I had a great time working with Loreal Paris on the recent Melissa Odabash/ Julien Mcdonald show as its great to see my tans come to life on the catwalk.  July 9th 2013 10:58:23
