How to Prepare for Your Spray Tan

How to Prepare for Your Spray Tan

  1. Dress in loose – loose-fitting clothing (dark colored clothing preferred)
    • A button or zipper top works best, and a pair of loose sweats, shorts or pants
    • NO yoga pants or tight jeans or tight tops as they may ruin the results
  2. Please bring a pair of slip on sandals/shoes to wear home
  3. If chance of rain – wear clothing to cover airbrushed areas
  4. Cleanse body some time the day of your scheduled appointment
    • Skin needs to be clean; no oils, creams, deodorant, perfume or makeup should be present
    • DO NOT use anything that moisturizes (Aveeno and Dove are not good to use day of)
  5. DO NOT shave the same day as the airbrush
    • If you must shave, do not use shaving cream. (It may act as a blocker for the spray)
  6. Mani and/or pedicure should be done the day before, not same day

** Remember, even though it looks like you have a suntan, your skin may not be prepared for the actual sun, so, if you are going on vacation or will be in the sun for a period of time; use at least an SPF 30 sun block.

Glow on the Go

Glow on the Go is our “Spray Tan in a Can.” Like our airbrushed spray tan solutions, Glow on the Go contains antioxidants and pure botanicals. It also contains essential oils to leave your skin soft and looking beautiful. This is ideal for touch ups between spray tan sessions.

Airbrushed Spray Tans

Get a natural looking tan without the need to visit a tanning bed. Spray tans are a great way to give your skin a temporary glow for that special occasion. Do you have a vacation coming up and don't want the "Minnesota tourist" look? Let our friendly staff at our salon in Hopkins, MN give you a beautiful professionally airbrushed spray tan before you go. The spray tan will last approximately 7 days. Our spray tans are airbrushed, not blasted from a spray booth, so you get a more even, natural look.

What to Expect During & After Your Spray Tan


  1. Women can be nude, wear undergarments, or a bathing suit
    • If wearing undergarments, they should be dark colored
    • We also have disposable undergarments for sale at $2 per piece
  2. Men need to wear an undergarment, either their own or purchase a disposable undergarment for $2


  1. How long to leave on the color – will depend on how dark you want to be. The longer the solution is left on the darker the color. Discuss with technician to determine right amount of hours for you
  2. Minimum rub off may occur. For as long as you have it on you should not get wet (or sweat)
  3. AVOID getting wet as color may streak and color processing will cease in those wetted areas. Please do not exercise until rinse shower is taken as this may cause streaking
  4. First shower is with just plain water, for at least 10 minutes to get excess or bronzer off. NO soap/shampoo
  5. After your first shower everything evens out within the first 24 hours. Do not rub to even it.
  6. You will see brown water when you shower, do not worry. That is just the excess washing off. Over the next 24 hours the spray tan will continue to process and get darker.
  7. Using soaps or cleansers with micro beads or an exfoliator will remove the tan much faster.
  8. Pool water, ocean water, etc will shorten the life of the airbrush by a couple of days.
  9. If something should occur (ie get wet) you have 2 days to come in for a touch- up.
  10. USE A GOOD MOISTURIZER EVERY SINGLE DAY – try to moisturize at least twice a day. This will extend the life of your spray tan.
