HOW DO I PREPARE?
The Spray Tan - your must have for any event or just to feel good. Our options include a classic 8 hr standard solution or a rapid solution. We will discuss which is best for you day of your appointment.
SHAVE + EXFOLIATE.
Be sure to shave (or wax) all unwanted hair and exfoliate, head to toe using a proper exfoliating mitt the night before your appointment. Exfoliating is the key to a great tan and even more imperative if you have an existing sunless tan. Tanning over existing tan is like painting over chipped nail polish, the results are blotchy and uneven.
Skip out on the lotions, deodorants, oils, and fragrances the day of your tan. These products can all create a barrier between your skin and the DHA resulting in an uneven tan, green armpits, and blotchiness.
WASH YOUR HAIR.
Make sure to wash your hair prior to your appointment (or plan out your hair washing schedule) as to avoid washing your hair during your first rinse. Ingredients in shampoo + conditioner can interfere with development of your sunless tan.
PLAN YOUR DAY ACCORDINGLY.
We get it... Your world doesn't stop spinning because you're getting a spray tan hence why we use the lightest weight solutions with a non-stick drying powder to allow you to get on about your life... But, please plan on wearing loose dark clothing, no exposure to water (cooking/washing dishes/bathing kids) and no heavy sweating.

WILL I BE ORANGE?
No way! Spray tanning has come a long way since it was first discovered. As long as you follow your tan technicians instructions you will never be orange.
WHAT DO I WEAR TO MY TAN APPOINTMENT?
During a tan, tan-lines are optional...go nude if ya want! Disclaimer: men MUST wear underwear.
But after a tan is a whole different story, please wear dark loose clothing
The perfect outfit: sandals, joggers, boyfriend tee or keep it simple with a black maxi dress.
Shower, shave, and exfoliate several hours or the day before your session. Try to avoid waxing or other spa treatments the day of your appointment. For best results, do not wear makeup or deodorant to your appointment.
Moisturize, moisturize, moisturize! Natural, fragrance-free lotions are best. This will ensure that your skin remains healthy and hydrated, and that your spray tan lasts longer. You can also use a gradual tanning lotion or tan extender. Also, stay hydrated and drink lots of water!
