Will I get to do a spray tan myself on the day of the course?

Yes, you will carry out a full body spray tan under the supervision of your Sunless Solutions Tutor.  If you are on a group spray tan course, you will normally carry out a spray tan on the other learners on the course.  At Sunless Solutions we do understand that not everyone will want to get undressed in front of other members of the group,  if you would prefer to provide a model to spray tan then you can arrange this prior to the course with Sunless Solutions Head office.  We want to put everyone at ease at every stage of your Spray Tan Course.

 

How will I or my model prepare my skin ready for my spray tan on the course?

24 hours prior to your training course you or your model will need to:

  • Exfoliate  - Exfoliate 24 hours prior to your spray tan to remove all dead skin cells.  Exfoliating products may contain oils and could therefore hinder the tanning process.  Ensure all traces of the product must be fully removed.

  • Remove excess hair - Hair removal should be done 12-24 hours prior to tanning to allow the pores to close.  The cosmetic bronzer and tanning products may sit inside open pores and cause a ‘black spotting’ appearance.

  • Moisturise - Moisturise the skin paying special attention to any areas such as elbows, knees and top of the feet

  • Pedicures/Manicures - Pedicures and manicures should be done a day before your spray tan application.  Massage oils will cause a problem with the tan’s development.  If a pedicure, or manicure, is done after the spray tan it will remove the tan from this area and can cause streaking.  Stick to polish change only on the day or day after your tan.  Ask your therapist to be careful and do not use lotions or oils.

TOP TIP:

If you don’t have time and have to shave on the day of the tan, make sure you have not used a razor that has an Aloe Vera or moisturising strip razor head.  Recent media clips show ladies with stripes up their legs, these can be a result of the moisturising strip head causing a barrier between the skin and the tans development.

 

What do I need to do on the day of the course to prepare for my spray tan?

  • NO moisturiser should be applied to the skin on the day of your course.  Moisturiser can cause a barrier and the tan may not process its full potential

  • NO deodorant.

  • NO Make-up

  • NO tight fitted clothes - this does include socks.  It is always best to wear dark loose fitted clothes following your spray tan, flip flops are ideal for after your spray tan

  • Remember your spray tan bikini or underwear, however, the trainer will have disposable thongs available should you wish to use these.

How will I remember what positions my client should stand in for her spray tan?

You training manual has pictures and written advice for how your client needs to stand during a spray tan.  You will also be given access to the Sunless Solutions Student area where you will find a client position chart for quick reference there is also a video you can watch on the student area.

 

Will I know which type/colour of spray tan solution to use on my client?

Yes, Sunless Solutions will explain the difference between our standard 8-hour development spray tan solution and our rapid express spray tan solution.  There is also a colour chart which gives advice on which solution to use for fair skin, Pale skin, Milky white, freckled, very light brown, olive, dark brown and black skin tones.
