My spray tan business has given me the flexibility to work my job around my family schedule for the past 19 years. Thinking about starting your own? My detailed guide will show you how to start a spray tan business and make money from it.

I’ve been working as a spray tan artist for the past 19 years, and earn a full-time income from my business. So I regularly receive lots of questions asking how to start a spray tan business.

I get it. Seeing all of the beautiful photos of models and brides on your social media makes it look like a dream job…

After all, I do get paid to hang out with my girlfriends and play spray tan and makeup all day! It is pretty fun.

But running a spray tan business isn’t as easy as it looks from the outside. There’s a lot of work going on in the background that most people don’t see.

So today I wanted to share a useful guide on how to get started in spray tanning. Because it’s the first step to becoming a profitable spray tan artist!

Confused about where to begin?

I am guessing you did a Google search for “How to start a spray tan business”

And you walked away overwhelmedconfused and unsure of who to trust and what to purchase.

Most of the web sites out there are spray tan distributors and there is no clear path to figure out if what they are selling is the best spray tan solution or quality spray tan equipment or the best prices. How are you supposed to know who to work with?

You need a friend who is working as a sunless tanning artist so you can ask for advice and direction.

That is me.

A shorter path to a profitable spray tan business

It’s safe to say there is a ton of spray tan business information locked inside my noggin.

During the past 19 years, I have developed systems for evaluating whether a new piece of spray tanning equipment comes on board, or if a new spray tan solution or retail product is the right fit for my business.

I am contacted weekly by sunless sales reps wanting me to use their supply house or try the latest “BEST” spray tan solution that just hit the market. Trying new products could take up my whole day if I let it.

So I developed a clear cut path for myself to work through all the clutter and find the sunless gems that are out there.

I am offering my experience to you to help shorten your path to a profitable spray tan business.
