Confused about where to begin?

I am guessing you did a Google search for “How to start a spray tan business” and maybe that is how you found me!

And you may have noticed that many of the websites out there are selling their specific brand of spray tan solution and equipment. And there is no clear path to figure out if what they are selling is the best spray tan solution for you if the spray tan equipment is reliable or the prices are fair.

How are you supposed to know who to work with?

I get it!

I am here to help and share my experience of 20+ years in the sunless industry with you.

I am here to help you:

  • Start your new spray tan business from the ground up
  • Grow your existing spray tan business into something bigger
  • Brand and Market yourself
  • Build a career that you LOVE

I hear from so many of you looking for this so I gathered together this comprehensive list of ALL the things I use to manage and build my business!

So grab yourself a cup and sit down for a little Q & A on the most common questions people ask me when they are considering starting their own spray tan business.

Is a spray tan business profitable?

The answer to this is YES! Absolutely.

My spray tan business has given me the flexibility to work my business around my family life for the past 20+ years and still earn a FULL-TIME income from it. I regularly receive a lot of questions asking how to start a spray tan business which is how this section of my webpage was born.

I get it. Seeing all of the beautiful photos of models and brides on social media is really enticing.

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!

It really is a dream job.

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.

The first thing people ask me is……..

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 get started. You can go BIG and open a studio or ease your way in starting small with a home or mobile setup.

It’s really up to you.

I started my business at home which quickly grew into a mobile spray tan business. My kids were still small so this was perfect for me. As my family grew and the time became right I was able to expand into my own studio!
