Sunless FAQ

What is spray tanning?

Our luxury spray tan is done completely by hand, ensuring each customer gets a customized bronzing from head to toe. The tanning application takes 5 minutes to apply followed by 5 minutes of drying time.


How does spray tanning work?

Spray tanning temporarily colors the skin. The active ingredient that creates the tanned effect is DHA (Dihydroxyacetone). DHA is derived from sugar cane or beet root. This ingredient interacts with the proteins and amino acids found in the top layer of the skin to create the desired tanned color. DHA is the primary ingredient found in all tanning products.


What should I wear to my appointment?

Wear loose, dark clothing. Tight clothing can leave marks. It’s best to wear slippers/thongs. If it rains, try to cover up with long sleeves and loose pants and bring an umbrella!


How long does an appointment take?

Your spray tan will take about 15 minutes but we don’t like to rush. Please allow 30 minutes for your appointment.


How long will my spray tan last?

Our spray tans last 7 – 14 days. You will be given information on how to best look after you tan.


Can I choose my own shade?

Yes, you can choose a shade from light to dark. We custom blend a color just for you and let you know how long to leave it on for.


How old do I need to be to have a spray tan?

While there are no legal minimum age restrictions for spray tanning, our company policy does not permit anyone under the age of 16 to have a spray tan without a parent or legal guardian present to directly supervise.


Will I look orange?

Nope. The advanced technology currently used in our spray tanning solutions is designed to ensure a natural, bronze tan. 


Will Swimming affect my tan?

Swimming in chlorinated water or salt water can fade your spray tan, causing possible streaking, and will diminish the length of your tan. Normal activities such as bathing, showering or physical activities will not affect the quality of your tan, however long showers in hot water should be avoided.


Will the cosmetic bronzer stain my clothing?

The cosmetic bronzer is used as a guide for the tanning technician to see where the tan has been applied. It does not stain and will wash out in water however very light colored clothing and undergarments can be affected depending on material. We advise wearing darker colors and avoid silk/satin fabrics.


Should I have a trial tan?

We highly recommend that if you are a bride or tanning for an upcoming event or vacation, that you come to our studio a few weeks before your event or vacation to give yourself enough time and enough tanning visits to achieve your desired tanning goal. We recommend that you do NOT come in the day before your event or vacation, because you may not achieve your desired tanning goal.
