frequently asked questions
WHEN SHOULD I GET MY TAN?
We always recommend getting an airbrush tan a few weeks before your event as a "trial run" is a great idea. Just so you can see the results and are happy with the look for your event. When you book your appointment for the actual event, we would recommend two or three days before.
WHAT DO I NEED TO DO BEFORE MY SESSION?
The most crucial step before your airbrush tanning session is to thoroughly exfoliate your skin so you can get the best possible results. Our Exfoliating Mitts are great to use as well which you can pick up in store a few days prior to your appointment! Remove all makeup, deodorant and lotions. Waxing, shaving, manicures and pedicures all need to be done the day before your appointment.
WHAT DO I WEAR?
During your session you may wear whatever you're most comfortable in, however, to avoid lines you may prefer to go topless. You can also choose to wear swimsuits, strapless bra and undergarments, whatever you decide. Men must wear swim trunks or shorts. It is best to wear dark loose fitting clothing immediately after your session. NO yoga pants, skinny jeans, leggings, etc. Think - comfy!
WHEN CAN I SHOWER?
You'll need to wait a minimum 8 hours before showering when choosing our Signature Tan. It is recommended that you also avoid swimming, working out, or any activity that will cause excess sweating before the 8 hours is up. If you choose the Rapid Tan, you have to shower 2-4 hours after your session. This is a great option if you have plans that evening or you prefer not to sleep in it. Please note the color will still take 8+ hours to fully develop but the Rapid gives you the convenience of showering sooner. If you have questions about which tan you should do, send us a message!

IF I’M PREGNANT, CAN I GET AN AIRBRUSH TAN?
Most people are suitable for an airbrush tan. We recommend that if you're pregnant, you should consult with your doctor before scheduling an appointment.
