Frequently Asked Questions

  • How do I prepare for my appointment?
    Pop over to our Tan Care page for all of your instructions! You'll find pre and post tan care and all the answers on what to expect for your spray tan appointment. Then complete the waiver at the bottom of the screen. Every client must have a waiver on file! It takes less than one minute to complete.
  • How long will my tanning session take?​
    About 10 minutes in the studio and roughly 30 minutes for mobile. Mobile appointments require us to use a pop up a tent and we need good lighting and access to an outlet. Please have your jewelry removed prior to appointment time. Mobile appointments should be prepared to start within a few minutes of our arrival. We schedule plenty of time for your appointment but if we have to allow for you to change clothes, secure pets and remove jewelry it can set us back the entire day.
  • How long should I expect my tan to last?
    Our signature custom spray tans last 7-10 days if you follow our post tan care instructions. We use custom blended, high quality solutions and have a unique spray technique. This is a guideline as everyone's skin is different and hormones and post activities play a huge role in how long it will last. A tan may develop differently during hormonal changes like ovulation, menstruation, or pregnancy. Your tan may be streaky or patchy. It may also cause color to fade faster or produce lighter to no color at all. This is something we do not have any control over.
  • When can I shower?
    Rapid solutions require 2-8 hours before a shower. Overnight solutions require you to wait 8-10 hours before a shower. We mainly use rapid solutions. Rapid solutions mean less time you have to worry about ruining your tan.
  • Can I work out or go to the gym after my first rinse?
    No. We recommend you do not work out until after 24 hours from your appointment. Your tan is not fully developed until that time. Once your tan is developed you can workout. Your tan may rub off on areas that have sweat and friction. If you workout on a regular basis please ask about our sweat proof tan! A good tip is to add powder before your workout to any areas that may have friction; sports bra straps, socks, etc.
  • I've seen pictures of splotchy and peeling spray tans. How do I prevent this?
    If you use AHA or BHA skin care products you need to stop several days before your tan. Accutane can cause your tan to develop unnaturally and fade quickly. Anti acne and anti aging products can cause your tan to look blotchy. Dove, Oil of Olay and Native brands should not be used to prep for your spray tan or during your tan.
  • I have a sunburn or I've had one in the past month. Can I still get a spray tan?
    Sunburns and spray tans do not mix! A spray tan will make your skin peel, exposing fresh skin and you will look crazy. Do not schedule a spray tan if you have a burn. Please know that if your burn is less than six weeks old your tan may develop unevenly, showing the lines of your burn. Please let us know if you have a recent burn so we can discuss the situation and decide on the best plan for you.
  • Can I get waxed or get a mani/pedi after my tan?
    Please make all waxing and nail appointments at least 24 hours prior to your tan but if that is not possible let your nail technician know not to exfoliate your hands and legs. Polish changes are ok and if your nails are natural it is ok to have them done. If you have gel, dip or acrylics you need to schedule your appointment prior to your spray tan. Soaking your nails in acetone to remove them will pull the tan off the tops of your fingers. Your tan may not develop on the waxed areas if you have it done the day of your tan and it will pull your tan off if you have it done after.
  • What forms of payment do you accept?
    We accept cash, credit cards and Venmo. Cash is always preferred!
  • What do I wear? Does everyone tan nude?
    We are comfortable with whatever you are comfortable with! Some clients choose to go topless, some wear a two piece or underwear and some go completely nude. Generally, the bronzer will wash out of your clothes. We do not recommend you wear anything expensive or silky as a precaution.
  • If I am tanning for an event when is the best time to schedule my appointment?
    Two days prior is the best time for your appointment but we understand that is not always possible. Depending on the event and what you are doing between tan time and the event we may recommend 3 days prior or the evening before. If you can't schedule two days prior please reach out to us and we will help you figure out the best time for your situation.
  • Will I turn orange?
    No. Unfortunately our last shipment was missing the orange bottle of solution. Jokes aside, you'll never be orange!
  • What do I absolutely need to know before spray tanning?
    The most important thing to know is that your results depend on how well you prepare before your appointment. If you do not exfoliate properly or come to your appointment with lotions and oils on your skin- your tan may be spotty, blotchy or much lighter than expected. Please exfoliate! The rinse time we give you also determines your color. Please follow our advice and rinse at the time given. Do not look in the mirror and make a decision to rinse early or later. You are only seeing bronzer. That is not how spray tans work. Just trust the process and you will wake up bronzed and beautiful!
  • How white will my teeth get?
    It is impossible to know how white your teeth will get prior to your session. We have never had anyone not see results but it is a rare possibility. Some people are able to reach their desired results after one visit. Some require additional visits.
  • Does it hurt?
    While we've never had anyone experience sensitivity with our gel, it does happen. In the event you feel pain we can stop the session and do a sensitivity treatment before continuing on with the whitening process.
  • Can I work or play on my phone during my session?
    No. Please plan to be device free during your session other than to play music in your headphones if you choose to do so. You will be wearing glasses that protect your eyes from the light. In order to see your screen you will have to move your teeth away from the light. Which could mean less than desired results. You will not be able to talk on the phone.
  • How can I get the best results possible?
    If possible, have your teeth professionally cleaned prior to your teeth whitening session. Do not brush your teeth right before your appointment. It is harder for the gel to stay on your teeth during the whitening session.
  • How do I prepare for my appointment?
    Please do not brush your teeth right before your appointment. There is nothing required to prepare for your appointment. You can have your teeth cleaned ahead of time if you choose.
  • What food and drinks do I need to avoid?
    For the first 24 hours following your appointment you will need to avoid anything staining. No coffee, red wine, tea, dark soda, ketchup, red sauce, etc. If you do have coffee the following morning be sure to brush your teeth immediately.
  • How long will my results last?
    Typically 6-12 months depending on how well you maintain the after care. If you smoke or drink alot of dark liquids your results will not last as long.
