Is a spray tan business profitable?

The short answer to this is YES! Absolutely.

My spray tan business has given me the flexibility to work my business around my family schedule for the past 20 years and earn a full-time income from it. So I regularly receive a lot of questions asking how to start a spray tan business.

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

After all, I do GET PAID to hang out with amazing clients, create beautiful art, and partner with other beauty professionals to create stunning looks!

How much does it cost to start a spray tan business?

That is one of the best parts of this industry. As far as businesses go it has a low cost to to get started. You can go all out all at once or ease your way in starting small.

It’s really up to you. I started my business at home and then went mobile and then into my own studio. My business grew with my family and when the time was right I was able to expand and go BIG.

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 20 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.
