FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How long will my appointment take?
The entire process from start to finish takes about 20 minutes.
Who will be spray tanning me?
One of our thoroughly trained female specialists will custom spray tan you with full professionalism.
Will I be orange or yellow?
No, we use a solution which is a 100% organic made from sugar beets. The color has no hint of orange! The solution is completely brown and bronze to guarantee a completely naturally looking tan. Ask for our "primer/ph balance" application to obtain the best color for your skin type.
Is it blotchy or uneven? Does it look fake?
No, it will be even and completely natural tan! One coat is applied completely custom to your body. Our certified specialist is trained to spray you evenly with the perfect amount of solution at the right pace. After you have your spray tan is complete we will check your tan to make sure everything is perfect and touch-up anything that is not. The client will be asked to look at themselves to make sure that the tan is exactly what they wanted. A second coat can be applied to darken color or fix any uneven areas. It is a natural, golden, even colored tan every time.
What do I wear?
Essentially this is your decision. Clients may wear an old bathing suit or undergarments - Bra (strapless, backless or a regular bra - straps can always be tucked in) Underwear (briefs, boxers, bikini or thong). Even though the solution will be sprayed on clothes, it does not stain. It comes out once laundered. In effort to avoid lines, you may prefer to go topless. Make sure to remove all jewelry prior to your spray tan and bring or wear loose fitting clothing. Flip flops are good, but not in the rain and snow of course.
How long do I have to wait to shower?
Preferably not until the next day - but at minimum 8 hours, 12 hours is best. It takes at least 8 hours for the solution to fully be absorbed into your skin. After being airbrushed, wait at least 8 hours before showering and doing any activates that will result in perspiring (ie: exercising, outdoor chores, etc) or choose EXPRESS and be able to rinse in 1-4hrs. Express is a $5 upcharge.
Is it okay to sleep in my spray tan?
Yes. Many of our clients prefer to sleep in their tan. If you are sleeping with the bronzer on your skin and allowing your tan to develop overnight, it is best to wear loose long sleeved pajamas (pants and shirt) and lay a towel over your pillow to prevent any bronzer transfer. Always try to avoid any skin on skin contact while you sleep!
How long does the tan last?
The tan can last up to 14 days but normally ranges from 5 - 10 days. It all depends on your skin type, how well you treat your spray tan after, and your daily activities. For example, those who enjoy long hot showers, swim in chlorine or work out daily tans will not last as long. Moisturizing daily with "spray tan" safe products will make your tan last longer.
If I am tanning for a special occasion such as a wedding or vacation when is the best time to get my spray tan?
The best time to get a spray tan for a special occasion/vacation is either the night before or two nights before. If you are going on vacation we suggestion getting a spray tan the night before you leave so it last throughout your vacation. If your special occasion is for your wedding, we recommend getting your spray tan two nights before so it is settled for your big day. Say your wedding is on a Saturday we recommend making your appointment for Thursday evening. (Don't forget we specialize in bridal parties, ask about our party discounts.)
Is is customary to tip the technician?
Sure. If you feel your airbrush technician did a good job, please feel free to tip them.
How should I prepare for my airbrush tan?
You should take a shower and exfoliate with a water based exfoliate prior to your appointment. Do not use an oil based exfoliant as oil reduces the effectiveness of the tanning solution. Shaving and waxing must be done prior to your spray tan as well. Remember, DO NOT put anything on your skin prior to your appointment. No deodorant, moisturizers, perfume/cologne or make-up.
If you are coming from work or somewhere where make-up and deodorant is a must, no worries we have supplies to remove them.
Shower, shave/wax and exfoliate before your appointment whether if its in the morning, or right before your appointment.
Mani/Pedis should be done prior, if possible.
Should I arrive early to my appointment? Should I arrive early to my appointment?
We ask that you please be courteous and arrive 5 minutes before your appointment. Our technician is scheduled to be there just for you, and the technician may have other appointments after your airbrush session.
What if I am running late to my appointment?
If you show up late or running late to your appointment, we cannot guarantee a specialist will be able to airbrush you. Please call as soon as possible if you are not going to be on time. We will do our best to accommodate you.
What is your cancellation policy or can I reschedule an appointment?

If I am pregnant, can I still receive an airbrush tan?
Dihydroxyacetone (DHA) is FDA approved and considered safe as it only penetrates the outermost layer of the skin. There is no evidence that DHA is harmful. However, we do recommend that pregnant women always consult with their physician first.
