    this is a very common + mainstream concern for first time spray tanners. our answer is always the same: an orange tint on someone's skin is usually from the following reasons: + the solution did not properly match their undertones + the solution was left on too long for proper development. + an incompatible product was applied to the skin post tan that caused severe brassiness.

  • CAN I SPRAY TAN BEFORE MY VACATION?
    absolutely - we love sending clients off on trips with a great spray tan to start! here is our best guidance for vacation spray tans: - remember that chlorine + salt water will increase your spray tan fading as they are both natural exfoliators. so your spray tan will only survive if not exposed to exfoliators often. - the best course of action to keep glowing on vacation is to always pat skin dry whenever you take a dip in the pool, ocean or lake. - use a specially formulated tan extender lotion to stay moisturized. the tan extender lotion will add a hint of color throughout your vacation to ensure your tan is replenished. - last but not least- use a waterproof sunscreen + reapply often.
  • WHEN DO I SPRAY TAN BEFORE A BIG EVENT?
    Very Important Advice - if you have never had a spray tan, please book a trial tan 2-4 weeks prior to your event to ensure that you are happy with the color. a trial tan is a full spray tan session that we use to adjust color for your special occasion. If you are comfortable with the spray tan process then we recommend that you spray tan at least 2 days prior to your event. if you know your dates - please book in advance as busy season appointments tend to fill up quickly.
  • HOW LONG WILL MY SPRAY TAN LAST?
    This is a very general answer to a question that we receive most often. Answer: most spray tans last anywhere between 6-8 days. Info to consider: spray tans act like a temporary tattoo on the top layer of your skin. your skin has a cellular turnover process that only lasts so long, which is why our skin dries up and sloughs off every so often. this means that your spray tan is only a temporary color which is designed to fade away so that new skin can show up. Also, spray tans cling to healthy, moisturized skin for much longer when we prepare our skin properly and care for it throughout the tan's life. Its very important to consider the care and upkeep when getting a spray tan. If not cared for - it will not develop well or last. *Skin Type, Skin Condition, Hydration, Products used and many other factors play a huge role in how long your specific spray tan will last. We do not guarantee a specific length for your spray tan and we encourage you to follow the Prep Tips for the best results possible.
  • VERY IMPORTANT - PLEASE REVIEW.
    - spray tans do not protect your skin from sunburn and overexposure to uv rays. - always choose a waterproof sunscreen and apply often while exposed to the sun. - spray tans differ slightly for every person due to skin health, dryness, skin care habits, DHA level used in solution, product type + age. each person has a unique skin chemistry and no color/shade of tan will look the same on different people. skin pigment, lifestyle, medication, diet, hormones, menstration, pregnancy + menopause are just a few factors that can effect the outcome of spray tan color, development and wear. - we do reserve the right to advise you not to spray tan due to various factors that could potentially cause unfavorable results such as: sunburn, peeling, open wounds, recent piercings, fresh tattoos, severe skin conditions. our client's best interest is priority. *we are here to answer any questions that you may have. please ask.
