After booking your appointment, you will receive a link with detailed prep info.
At the beginning of the appointment, I will conduct a client consultation to ensure we are giving you exactly the tan you are expecting! I'll walk you through the process from start to finish.
Then we spray! This part only takes about 8 minutes tops.
We'll discuss the after-care instructions provided on the take-home card for you and you'll have time to ask any remaining questions.
A spray tan looks its best during the first 3 - 5 days, and typically last 5 - 7 days with proper care. With a tan extending lotion, your spray tan can last up to two weeks. With proper prep and maintenance, your spray tan should fade away evenly around the 7 - 10-day mark.
I always suggest setting at least two to three days between your spray tan and your event. Your tan will look its best during the first 4 days.
Example: If your event is on a Saturday, I would suggest getting your spray tan on a Wednesday or Thursday.
This is completely up to you and whatever you feel most comfortable doing! Most of our clients opt to wear a bathing suit bottom or thong. You may choose to go topless.
I have hair nets, disposable thongs, and nose filters available.
Exfoliating is an important step in preperation for your tan to ensure the tan develops and fades evenly.
48 hours prior to your appointment, use a body scrub in the shower. Scrub every inch of your body- don't forget armpits and deodorant buildup.
24 hours prior to your appointment use a wash cloth or exfoliating mitt in the shower to lightly scrub your body and remove and remaining product residue.
Aside from price, the only difference between these two spray tans is the amount of time you must wait for the first rinse. A Classic Tan must be left on for at least 8 -12 hours before you can rinse. A Rapid Rinse Tan allows you to rinse sooner, anywhere between
1 - 4 hours.
PLEASE NOTE: Rapid Rinse does not mean rapid development. Both tans take a full 12-24 hours to develop color. Both tans have light-extra dark options.

YES! ABSOLUTELY! The only thing that will protect your skin from the sun is SPF.
** A spray tan does not contain SPF!**
Your skin is delicate, and you already did one thing right for it by getting a safe, sunless tan. Don't backtrack with a sunburn!
What you see on your skin immediately after your spray tan is just cosmetic bronzer. The added bronzer helps me to spray evenly and gives you an extra pop of initial color. The DHA (dihydroxyacetone) in the solution, which is basically a glucose derivative, is what actually makes your skin brown and mimics a real tan from the sun.
How does DHA work? DHA reacts with amino acids on just the top layer of your skin. When this reaction occurs, the skin cells turn several shades darker. This is a completely safe process! During your skin's natural exfoliation cycle, the dead skin cells will shed off, which results in a fading tan.
