Frequently asked questions
The most common questions we get from our clients
We suggest sometime in the 1-3 day window before your event in order to ensure the best tan appearance!
Dark, loose clothing that covers as much skin as possible. I recommend a long sleeve shirt and lounge pants.
Exfoliate and shave/wax the day before (or at least 8 hours before). This will get rid of any dead skin and provide a more even skin surface for the solution. You will also want to avoid using Dove products as this leaves a film on your skin and prevents your tan from fully developing.
Whatever you are comfortable with! Women can go completely nude or wear any amount of clothing they choose. We offer disposable thongs and disposable strapless bras if you prefer to wear those. When selecting what to wear, it’s important to think about what tan lines would be present after your tan. If you’re wearing a backless, strapless dress to an event, you wouldn’t want a bra tan line showing! Men have to wear some sort of undergarment of their choosing.
Avoid scented lotions, oils, deodorant, and anything that could sink into your skin and make your new tan uneven.
Whomever! Any people under the age of 18 will have to have a parent/guardian sign a waiver.
Our tans last an average of 7-10 days before any significant fading, with most people noticing fading after a week. Because we wash our hands and face more often than other parts of our body, the tan will fade quicker on those areas. Following aftercare instructions and using our touch-up spray will prolong the life of your tan.
Absolutely not! We hve a NO orange guaruntee. Each formula is custom blended to match the undertones of your skin to provide a smooth, flawless color!
Our solutions are made with such high quality ingredients that there’s no odor!
A rapid tan tends to be more convenient if you have an event or occasion later that day, as you only keep it on for 2-4 hours max. A traditional airbrush tan must be kept on for a minimum of 8 hours to fully develop. I love rapid tans because you get the same color payoff in less time.
Rapid solutions rage from 2-4 hours afterwards. For regular solutions wait 8-12 hours. I will give you a time-frame during your appointment. Please try to rinse as close to time given as possible.
You can schedule an appointment by clicking the “Book Now” button at the top of the page. You may also call, text, or email with any qustions. However, due to our mobile nature and high volume of appointments, we spend all of our business hours either in someone’s home or driving. We don’t text and drive and we also like to be considerate of time of day, so please understand it may take a few hours to get back to you! You can schedule online anytime from 6 months to 24 hours out. If you seek any last minute or afterhours appointments, please give us a call!
We recommend brides book a trial no later than 2 weeks before their big day, in order to determine a specific color level for the big day! Our method of application and simple solutions ensure that there is virtually no risk of color transfer on your big day when coupled with proper aftercare.
Yes! All our solutions are all natural and organic. One of the main ingredients in our solutions is dihydroxyacetone (DHA). DHA is a carbohydrate (monosaccharide sugar) compound approved by the FDA for use in externally applied sunless tanning solutions. It is usually derived from a vegetable source like beets or sugar cane.
It’s best to schedule any manicures or pedicures before your appointment. Our solution contains no artificial colors, meaning it won’t stain your nails. We also instruct you on where to place barrier cream and give your nails a good wipe after the spray. Manicures aren’t a huge deal afterwards, but a pedicure will take the tan off quicker around the bottom half of your legs. The general act of soaking in water removes your spray tan, so it’s best to avoid it.
We do! All of our spray tans are full body. We completely customize the tan to your needs. If you would prefer to not have your face tan, just let us know.
Mineral Oil: It is a petroleum based skin softener that not only strips your tan but also clogs your pores and has been known to have extreme effects on the skin. This is a common ingredient in cheap lotions. Clients will get longer wear from their spray tan by avoiding these tan stripping products.
Petrolatum: Also a petroleum based skin softener that clogs the pores and strips the tan. This is used much less than the Mineral Oil, but is prevalent in body butters and really rich body cream washes. It’s a cheap ingredient that doesn’t lock in moisture, but just makes your skin feel soft. Hydrated skin and soft skin are not always the same thing.
Sodium Lauryl Sulfate: Also known as SLS, this is the most common ingredient in body washes and bar soaps. It is a strong detergent that allows the product to lather well. It will strip your spray tan quickly.
If you have any specific questions about the products that you are using and if they will prevent you from having an amazing tan please contact me. My goal is for you to have that perfect tan that will last nicely up to a week with a nice even fade. Native, Shea Moisture, Raw Sugar, Love Beauty & Planet, Puracy, Alba Botanica, and Vino Color Protect are all great options. are great options are spray tan safe. We also have some really great tan safe products you can purchase here.
DHA is the main ingredient in spray tans. DHA stands for dihydroxyacetone, which is a colorless sugar derived from raw sugar cane or fermented glycerin. DHA interacts with dead skin cells on the skin’s surface to darken it naturally. The skin begins to darken within 4-6 hours. The color will last for 5-7 days on average depending on cell turnover and after care products used.
The first DHA formula was developed in the 1970’s and the results came out orange. Today, spray tanning solutions have been developed to produce a natural-looking color and have an improved reaction with the skin.
There are two types of spray tan applications: cosmetic bronzers and clear. Cosmetic bronzers give an instant result and is similar to make-up and are designed to wash off in your first shower as the DHA darkens. The clear solution goes on your skin clear and it will take a few hours before your skin is darkened.
All major credit cards and cash. If paying by cash, please have the exact amount.
If you have a serious sunburn, we advise you to reschedule your appointment. If the sunburn peels after your appointment, the results of your tan will be less than ideal. If the burn is located in one area, we can try to avoid it.

Natural-looking and long lasting.

Absolutely! We spray many mamas-to-be and encourage you to do anything that makes you feel glamourous during those long 9 months! Our solution is a top-of-the-line, all-natural, hypoallergenic solution with 7 simple ingredients that are all plant based. Super green, super simple. If you’re nervous about booking an appointment, we suggest asking your OB as we aren’t medical professionals. However, we can tell you that not one OB has said no! We also offer extra safety precautions, such as nose filters, if you prefer.
Yep, that too! After your initial shower, you’re free to go about breastfeeding and pumping as normal. Luckily, our rapid solutions have a max processing time of 5 hours! If you’re unable to wait to feed or pump for 5 hours after your appointment, we’ll need to cover the area and we have multiple ways we can do that!
Our solutions contain cosmetic bronzers, meaning you’ll see immediate color with every pass. The bronzer can transfer to clothes or sheets before that initial shower. We recommend wearing dark, loose clothing immediately after your spray. Any bronzers you notice come off on your clothes or sheets does wash out in the washing machine. There are no artificial colors in our solutions, and DHA only reacts with skin so no stains!
We recommend a room that has tile or hardwood floors so that all equipment is able to lay flat. We’ll need a space large enough to accommodate a 4x4x7 foot tent and an outlet nearby. A small table or sink is also helpful. That’s it!
