Custom Airbrush Tanning is perfect for when you need an event-ready tan or to keep a healthy sun-kissed glow all year long! Our sunless solutions range from a subtle hint of color to a deep bronze tan in both the traditional and rapid formulas. The custom solution is applied by a trained technician using an air mist system. Please be advised we do NOT advise being sprayed for photographic sessions, weddings, etc., unless you have had a trial spray tan with us.
Short on time? Try our rapid tan — no more waiting several hours to shower! The concentrated formula allows the tanning solution to be rinsed off in a fraction of the time (2-4 hours). It is important to note, the rapid tan does not darken faster but continues to develop up to 24 hours after application.

Frequently Asked Questions
WHAT DO I NEED TO DO BEFORE I COME IN?
Shower, shave, and exfoliate 24 hours in advance. Avoid makeup, lotion, deodorant, and sunscreen. Come with clean, dry skin. Make sure all waxing and nail appointments are done before the session. Wear or bring dark, loose-fitting clothing and flip flops to wear after the session.
HOW LIGHT OR DARK CAN I GET FROM A SPRAY TAN?
The darker you can tan naturally, the darker you can tan with a spray tan. We can customize a shade for your skin tone ranging from light to dark.
HOW DOES A SPRAY TAN WORK?
DHA reacts with the skin’s amino acids resulting in a tan similar to that of the sun.
WHAT DO I WEAR FOR A SPRAY TAN?
Women may dress down to what they are comfortable with. Some wear underwear or a bathing suit while others go topless or nude to avoid tan lines. Men are required to wear shorts, swim trucks or underwear. When wearing clothing during the session, you will get some of the color on your clothes. The solution does wash out of most fabric and typically does not stain, but it is best to wear something old to avoid any mishaps.
HOW LONG DOES A SESSION TAKE?
From start to finish, a session should take about 15 minutes. This includes changing, getting sprayed, and drying off.
IS IT A BOOTH OR SOMEONE SPRAYING ME?
Our airbrush technicians will apply the solution — customizing the tan and color just for you.
HOW LONG BEFORE I CAN TAKE A SHOWER?
Avoid showering, rain, sweating, or any other kind of water contact for at least 10-15 hours for traditional, and 2-4 hours for rapid tans. Exposure to water before processing is complete can result in streaking and uneven color.
WHY DOES SO MUCH COLOR WASH OFF IN THE SHOWER?
What washes off is the cosmetic bronzer. This is normal. The cosmetic bronzers are temporary and give the skin instant color.
HOW LONG WILL MY TAN LAST?
Your spray tan should last 5-10 days, depending on skin type and aftercare.
WHAT HAPPENS IF I HAVE ALLERGIES?
Very few individuals may be allergic or skin may not react favorably to one or more ingredients in the solution. If this occurs, shower, discontinue use, and contact a physician.
DOES SPRAY TANNING PROTECT ME FROM A SUNBURN?
This product does not contain sunscreen or protect against the sun. Repeated sun exposure may cause skin aging, skin cancer and other harmful effects to the skin.
- Avoid rain and exposure to water.
- Avoid exercising or physical activity. Perspiring before the tan fully develops can result in uneven color and streaking.
- Wait 10-15 hours after a Traditional Airbrush Tan before showering.
- Wait 2-4 hours after a Rapid Airbrush Tan before showering.
- Do not exfoliate, use a loofah, or a washcloth.
- Moisturize morning and night, starting after your first shower.
- Avoid long showers and baths.
- Hot tub and chlorine pool exposure may decrease length of your tan.
