How to Choose Your Spray Tan Artist.
Are you considering getting a spray tan, but you are a little nervous to actually go through with it? You have heard ALL sorts of crazy stories from your friends.
Spray tans are ORANGE, STREAKY, and BLOTCHY…..
……they smell bad and they are messy.
Or are they?
A few people have told you how WONDERFUL spray tans are. Do they know something the rest of the world doesn’t?
A spray tan can be the MOST amazing thing that you have ever had done.
Instant color, blended tan lines, pretty glow, tan legs, feeling slimmer, no skin cancer risks, etc.
A professionally applied sunless tan has great advantages over the sun when it’s done properly.
That’s the make it or break it though…..when it’s done properly.
How do you choose the right spray tan artist to get your sunless tan from?
Here are three things to look for when you are searching for an amazing spray tan artist
1. How long have they been spraying
2. Are they certified
3. Can you see their work
How long a spray tan artist has been spraying is VERY important. Experience and artistic talent don’t happen overnight. Practicing your craft and continuing to educate yourself on technique only comes with TIME. I’ve been spraying for 16 amazing years, and I have learned a whole bunch about what to do and NOT to do in that period of time. I have also experienced special skin conditions, scars from cancer, and spent thousands of hours dealing with women’s body images. I GET it!
Yes I am certified!! My certificate is on the wall in my studio. So what does being certified to do spray tans really mean? Well there are several different ways to get your spray tan certificate. From a franchise or distributer: these are the people that you buy your spray tan equipment from (can be online or in person and is normally a one day program). From a private training center: this is a hands on program of varying length. Or from an online educator providing video training. My spray tan training was a 2 week hands on in person program, that ended with testing and an evaluation of my skills. I have also invested in additional training over the years to continue to educate myself and learn the latest techniques as well as stay up to date with the newest products on the market. Mostly because it’s FUN and I love learning new skills.
