If you’ve read the FAQ’s page and can’t wait till your appointment, or maybe you just want to know more about how mobile spray tanning works – you’ve come to the right place! We’re going to break down the entire spray tan process so you’ll know exactly what to expect during your appointment.
Step 1. Book your spray tan! That’s the easy part, you can contact us online or give us a call. We aim to get back to you within a few short hours. We’re very busy ladies so if we don’t respond immediately it’s usually because we’re in the middle of spray tanning another lovely lady or gent. But don’t you worry, you’ll hear from us soon.
Step 2. We will send you a client details form for you to fill out. This is just a few bits of information so we’re fully clued up on what you need, whether you have a touch of eczema or are just nervous about stripping in front of a stranger – we completely understand and encourage you to let us know before your appointment so we can tailor the tanning experience to your needs. Speaking of naked confidence, we just covered a few tips in our previous article here.
Step 3. Read up on the pre-tanning information we provide. This includes details such as when you should shave before your appointment, when to avoid moisturiser and some after care tips too. And as always – any questions just get in touch and we’ll banish the worries!
Step 4. The best part, tanning day is here! Wear something loose before we arrive, and more often than not we won’t need a brew because we’ll be in and out of your house within 30 minutes so just sit back and wait for the doorbell to ring. Pro tip: if you have any parking directions such as “there’s a free space round the corner” please let us know.
When we arrive we’ll need a space to set up our spray tanning booth. We prefer to tan on a hard surface so a kitchen or dining room with lino or wood flooring is absolutely perfect! And the only other thing we need is a plug point to power our professional spray tanning machine.
Step 5. The pop-up booth is up! Time to don your sticky feet and a hair net (provided by your WAT professional). We don’t want the bottoms of your feet to pick up any tan so we bring sticky feet with us to keep them protected. Think of them as a flip flop without the strap!
Then we’ll apply some moisturiser to those dry areas like knuckles and knees to ensure the spray tan takes to your skin evenly all over. We pride ourselves on making sure your tan is flawless, so please don’t utter the words “oh I don’t mind about that” because we simply won’t hear it. If your spray tan isn’t a 10 out 10 then we’re not satisfied!
Step 6. Ok now comes the time to take off your robe and begin the spray tan. You will begin facing us and we will coach you through various poses – you’re allowed to laugh if you want to, many people get the giggles when we tell them to pose like a running man but we promise it’s part of the process! We want to make sure you get flawless coverage of every inch – even between your fingers.
Step 7. Spray tan complete – all in less than 25 minutes. You may put your robe back on but please don’t pat yourself, we don’t want to dislodge any of the perfectly applied tan. And that’s it, just let the lovely vani-t formula do its work and in as little as 4 hours you can shower it off and live your life in the colour gorgeous! Oh and please don’t do the dishes immediately after your spray tan, our vani-t formula is fast but it’s not quite that fast… Perfect excuse to let them soak really!
Step 8. We’ll supply you with some tan after-care advice, and in 5 minutes flat we pack away our spray tan kit and hustle off to our next appointment.
I actually think this took longer to write than the spray tan appointment itself! It couldn’t be easier. So what are you waiting for? Book your next spray tan with Wilde About Tan today.
