Conveniently located in the Tempe Marketplace and North Scottsdale, getting a spray tan fits in every busy schedule. The salon serves both men and women with an all female staff. With that being said, while women can choose to get a tan in whichever clothing they may or may not choose wear. Men must be at least minimally covered up out of respect for their valued artist. Don't worry guys everything you need to cover up is available at both stores.
When you walk into either salon you'll be greeted at the front by one of the artists and spend a few minutes discussing which kind of tan you're looking for. They feature light, medium, and dark tans for the exact gold tan, bronze tan, or dark exotic tan you're looking for. As well as a rapid tan or the longer-lasting tan. While the rapid takes less time to set up, it won't last as long or get quite as dark. It depends on what you're looking for. The rapid tan is 1-3 hours to set up and lasts for about a week. The longer-lasting tan takes 6-8 hours to fully set but lasts up to two weeks with the right maintenance and care.
Once you've chosen a tan your artist will lead you back to a private room with a door and everything. Your Tanning equipment will be in there, a chair, the fan, and plenty of room to move around and get undressed and dressed comfortably. Once you're ready your Artist comes in, checks her equipment and that the correct solution is in her spray handle, preps your hands, feet, and face, then she gives you an incredible tan in just a few minutes while you relax. You'll turn and move to ensure the tan covers your entire body in an even and smooth coat that will set just how you want it and look as natural as can be.
After you get your tan your skin will feel a little sticky from the solution. The spray tanning solution contains sugar in it so you'll feel that but you won't want to feel it yourself to make sure because you'll end up getting the tan on the palms of your hands and your palms will be as tan as your legs for the next 7-10 days.
Be sure to bring loose fitting, dark colored clothing that you don't mind getting solution on. You want your clothes to be loose so they don't rub and take off the solution leaving you with an uneven tan. However, it's inevitable that some of the solution is going to come off on your clothes over the next couple of hours, this is normal and okay, but the dark clothes keep the solution from showing like white clothes would.
Stay away from water until you're time is up and your tan is set and you'll rinse off in the shower. There's a bronzer in the tanning solution, this gives you the dark color immediately after you get sprayed. When you shower the bronzer rinses off and you'll see it when you shower - it's completely normal, that's not your tan washing off, just the bronzer. Then your tan will continue to set until you choose to wash with soap and take it all off.
Over the next week to two weeks you'll notice your tan start to fade slowly as you wash, and exfoliate your skin. By the time that happens you'll be ready to schedule your next appointment by clicking here for spray tanning at either the Tempe or Scottsdale location, whichever one's closer to you!
