Frequently Asked Questions 

What is the difference Between Standard and Rapid? 

Both solution options offer the same quality and longevity.
Our Standard, 8-hour option suits beginner spray tanners, providing a true color off the bat. It is also great for those who prefer overnight tanning or don't have access to a shower within 5 hours.
The rapid option is ideal for daytime tanners who want a quick solution without prolonged exposure and have access to a shower within 3-5 hours. Failure to rinse the rapid option on time may result in undesirable brassy tones. While the initial color may appear dark, rinsing will lighten it, and after 24 hours, it will reach optimal color.

What should I wear to my appointmet? 

For your spray tanning appointment, it's best to wear loose, dark clothing to avoid staining. Opt for something comfortable, such as a loose-fitting dark-colored top and bottoms. Avoid tight-fitting clothing that may rub against the freshly applied tan. Additionally, consider bringing along flip-flops or loose shoes to wear after the session to prevent smudging the tan on your feet.

What should I wear during my session?

Tan lines are OPTIONAL. Our technicians are experienced professionals who work with clients of all shapes and sizes every day, so there's absolutely no need to feel intimidated. Your comfort and satisfaction are our top priorities, so please feel free to let us know if there's anything we can do to make your experience even better. We provide disposable underwear and strapless bras for all of our clients. 

How far in advance should I spray tan before my event?

For optimal results, we recommend spray tanning 1-2 days before your event. This timeframe allows the tan to fully develop and settle, giving you a natural and flawless glow on the day of your event. Additionally, it provides a buffer in case any touch-ups or adjustments are needed. Avoid scheduling your spray tan session too close to the event to allow enough time for the color to develop evenly and for any initial bronzer to wash off, ensuring the best possible outcome for your special occasion.

How long is the process?

The spray tanning process typically takes around 15 to 30 minutes from start to finish, depending on factors such as the specific technique used, the desired level of coverage, and any additional services requested, such as contouring or drying.

Will I look orange?

 We understand the concern. There are many inferior solutions out there to warrant it and inexperienced technicians, but our expertise and high quality solutions ensure that you'll always achieve a natural, golden-bronze glow that beautifully enhances your skin tone.

What is spray tan contouring?

We strategically apply the solution to highlight bone structure, accentuate curves, and enhance existing definition. Initially, it may seem bold, but trust the process! After rinsing, it settles into a subtle, natural shadow that lasts as long as your spray tan. If you're seeking some extra definition, adding contouring to your next appointment is the way to go. Trust us, you'll love the results!

How do I choose my shade?

Before we begin the spray tanning process, we'll have a brief consultation to discuss your desired color, the occasion, and your skin type. Together, we'll determine the ideal color depth to ensure a natural-looking tan that perfectly suits you. Our goal is always to achieve a tone that enhances your natural beauty and leaves you feeling confident and radiant.

Is DHA safe?

Absolutely. DHA, the primary ingredient in sunless tanning solutions, gained FDA approval in the 1970s. Derived from sugar beets and sugar cane, it's a staple in many over-the-counter cosmetics. Our formulations are enriched with antioxidants, nutrient-rich oils, and botanicals, offering a dual benefit of protection and nourishment for your skin.  Our organic solutions not only shield your skin from sun damage but also infuse it with beneficial ingredients. Expect flawless results that match your skin tone perfectly, without the uneven fading often seen with inferior products. Making the switch isn't just about preserving your skin - it's about embracing a healthier skincare routine!

How long will my spray tan last?

Spray tans usually last anywhere from 5-10 days all depending on how you prep and maintain. Please refer to our tan care page.

Does the spray tanning solution have sunscreen or provide protection from the sun?

No. You should still wear sunscreen when exposed to the sun. 

We recommend Elta MD, Sun Bum, Coola, CoTZ, and MD Solar Science.
