The most common questions we get from our clients
I operate by appointment only and have availability after business hours during the workweek and offer weekend appointments on a case-by-case basis.
Tans can be booked by calling or texting 651-497-0574. Your tan will not be scheduled until I have a half down retainer to secure your appointment. You must complete a short questionnaire and waiver before receiving your spray tan.
CANCELLATIONS: If you cancel within 8 hours before your schedule appointment you forfeit your retainer.
Be sure to schedule your tan at least 6-8 weeks before your event. This will ensure proper scheduling for your spray tan and the color will look it’s best before your event.
Yes, all brides must complete a trial run before the big day to ensure we get the desired color you want for the big day. It’s a detail you don’t want to chance. Everyone tans differently so I do require brides to do a trial first.
Yes, all parties are required to put down a retainer to save your scheduled spray tan date.
With the proper maintenance your spray tan can last 5-7 days. The more you moisturize the longer your tan will last.
On day 2-3 the tan will look its optimal color.
No, I will not conduct services until 2 weeks have passed and you are no longer peeling. If you receive a spray tan in this condition it will result in a blotchy look and you will be disappointed.
I can minimize the look of tan lines but there is no guarantee that they will completely disappear.
Please receive any pedicures or manicures before your spray tan. Any exfoliating or soaking will affect the tan application and may result in blotchiness.
Come to the session with hair up in a bun or pulled back from your face. Wear comfortable loose fitting clothes that are dark. No jeans, spandex pants, jewelry, makeup, perfumes or deodorant.
If you can get away without wearing a bra or no underwire that will benefit your tan.
It’s completely up to you how much you want to bare and where you want your tan lines. Most clients wear their underwear/thong and go topless. I’ve seen it all so don’t be shy.
For optimal results: Shower, exfoliate and shave at least 8 hours before your spray tan. Stay away from dove soap products or shaving creams (they can affect the application). Be sure your skin is free from makeup, perfumes and deodorant.
Traditional tans will take up to 8 hours to develop your tan. You sleep with the solution on your skin and can shower 8 hours later. After receiving a rapid tan you can shower anywhere from 1-4 hours after your spray tan. Your spray tan artist will let you know the best time to shower after understanding your desired color.
Before your 1st rinse
Do not get wet, put on any body products, receive a manicure/pedicure, work out, sweat excessively, swim/bathe, sit on leather with bare skin, walk in the rain, rub your skin excessively, cry or have a water balloon fight 😉
1-4 Hours Post Tan
Rinse your body (no body wash, exfoliants, loofahs, lotions or other products). Pat dry with a towel verses rub.
Dry skin sheds faster and takes your tan with it. Moisturizer is your friend. Use it often! Tan lotion extenders are helpful. Stay way from hot tubs, exfoliants, chlorine, rubbing or disrupting your skin and dove soap products.
Always consult a doctor before spray tanning services. When you get a spray tan, you are covered from head to toe with a solution containing dihydroxyacetone (DHA). DHA is the active ingredient, and is what will ultimately give your skin its bronzed color. You may be concerned about DHA being absorbed into your skin, or that you inhale it and possibly harm the baby.
Luckily, there is little risk of this happening. For starters, DHA is formulated specifically so that it does not penetrate the skin. This is why spray tans are temporary. You do not have to worry about absorbing anything dangerous through your skin. It’s entirely up to you. I’m a mother of two and received spray tans while pregnant and have spray tanned numerous pregnant women and we have all lived to tell the tale as well as our healthy babies.
