Want to get the most out of your spray tan experience? Read our pre-spray, during-spray, and post-spray tips below.


  • Complete ALL your other services at least 24 hours before your tan, such as manicures, pedicures, waxing, facials, massages, eyelashes etc. Your spray tan is your last stop!

  • Exfoliate well starting 2 days before using a mitt or glove. (Loofah and towels wont work as well). Because you are exfoliating earlier in preparation- you can use a good quality skin moisturizer after you shower up until the day of your tanning session. 

  • Try to avoid showering right before your session and avoid Dove soap several days before. 

  • Try to get shaving done 24 hours before and use a razor without the gunk on it. Clean skin for session; no deodorant , makeup, lotions, and perfumes. Bring loose clothing to wear after. You will be able to rinse as soon as 2-4 hours.

  • Will the tan stain my bed sheets and clothing?
    We suggest wearing loose long pants and long sleeves immediately after and to sleep in the night of your tan. You may experience a slight rub off from the bronzers, however, after your first shower, you should not experience any transfer to clothing. If you do experience color transfer, it will come out of your clothing in the wash machine. This is where we recommend one of our amazing rapid tan options. *Brides - you will get 2 rinses in so no worries on the color rubbing onto the dress.

    No - we take scheduled appointments only. Preparation for your tan is a MUST.

    Yes - but 12-24 hours later. Cocktail tanning at its finest. It takes months to achieve a bed booth tan while a spray tan takes minutes ;)

    This does not contain THC. Cannabidiol is naturally occuring, safe, and has awesome skin care and therapeutic benefits. Wellness benefits of CBD: inflammation, muscle pain, and stress relief. It will not cause a "high" effect. No THC within.
  • What forms of payment do you take?
    At this time, we accept Venmo and cash as forms of payment.
  • I have a sunburn. Can I get a tan?
    Absolutely not. Sun damage can linger underneath the skin for up to 6 to 8 weeks after an initial sunburn. With a sunburn, no matter if its brand new or even six weeks old, a spray tan can cause rapid exfoliation of skin cells causing your skin to peel within a few days of your spray tan. This can be particularly detrimental to brides or anyone attending a formal event. We recommend not tanning over a new or recent sunburn to avoid peeling and spotting.
