How to Sell Retail in a Tanning Salon

Sales can feel hard, particularly in a salon where your customers are usually coming in for one service. However, if you can learn the trick to it, selling retail is an amazing way to boost business and help problem solve for your clients. The perfect place to make these sales is in the spray-tan room! your clients can often feel naked and nervous, but this is an ideal time to build rapport with your client and sell them products in an authentic way. We have the perfect five step process to making sales in the tanning room, and keeping your clients returning for more!

Small talk

While spraying a client it is always important to build a relationship and make a lasting impression. Just like everything in life, we are much more likely to gravitate towards someone that is friendly and engaging, so make sure to ask plenty of questions.

During this time ask your client questions such as, what are your plans for the weekend, do you fake tan at home, do you have any trips planned, etc. These little bits of information are natural paths to selling your products.

Problem-solving

The next phase of our method involves using all the information you have learned and figuring out how you can problem solve for your customer. The most authentic sales come when the seller offers a solution to an issue the client has, rather than suggesting a product that may have no relevance to them. For example, If your client has events two weekend in a row you can suggest an Exfoliator to help buff away the tan, in between weekends. Travelling customers are also great to sell to, as you can recommend a Gradual Tan to extend their spray-tan over the length of their trip or let them know about any travel sized products you might stock.

If you notice their skin is a little dry on certain areas, you can advise them about Creme De la Creme moisturiser. The possibilities are endless, as long as you listen carefully to your customer and make sure you are thinking of what would best suit them. There is no use selling them a product they don’t need, this will make you appear in-genuine, and lessen your chances of a repeat customer.  

Retail

Once you bring up a product the client will usually ask about it, which gives you the opportunity to show them how well you know the product, and why it would be perfect for them. List off the key features, talk naturally, and be sure to ask relevant questions to discern what product would be ideal for them. For example, if you were talking about a tanning product, find out what their skin type is, how often they tan or how dark they like to go. These questions enable you to figure out what product would work best for them. If you choose wisely your customer will value your opinion and will be more receptive to trying other products you suggest next time they come for an appointment.

Discuss

Once the clients spray-tan is over, if you have followed the previous steps, you are in the perfect position to make a sale! Once your client leaves the spray-tan room, lead them to the counter and show them the products that you had discussed. Let them test, smell and feel the product. If you spoke about your retail earnestly and with consideration of their needs, they will, likely, follow through with a purchase.

 

Follow up

One often ignored, but vitally important, part of sales is the follow-up. Next time your client comes in remember to ask them how they liked the product. Not only does this provide you valuable feedback on your retail, but it shows the customer that you care and value them as a part of your business. We would suggest keeping notes of what clients purchased on their card, or on your scheduling app. Once they come in you will be able to give suggestions on other products based on what they did or didn’t like about the one they purchased last time.

Follow these tips and not only will your retail fly off the shelves, but you will build stronger relationships with your customers. There is nothing wrong with making sales, so long as you put them first.  

Winter Skin Care Routine

As winter approaches our skin gets drier and the weather becomes duller, but that doesn’t mean you can’t be glowing! At Naked Tan, we understand not everyone can afford a summer holiday in Europe to get a natural goddess bronze. So, we are here to save your skin with our go to winter products!

Your skin is your biggest organ in your body so it’s important not to neglect it. The cooler weather can tend to make your skin look flakey and lifeless.

  1. The first step to our recommended skincare routine is to exfoliate using our Goddess Exfoliator.Our unique formula combines moisture rich coconut oil with smooth pumice grains and bamboo to gently exfoliate, leaving your skin soft, smooth and tan free. If you have any old tan still sticking, use our Tan Remover Mitt to easily remove those last bits of tan.

2. Take a warm shower using our Goddess Body Cleanser. It is enriched with Vitamin E, Aloe Vera, Organic Coconut Oil and Macadamia Oil moisturising your skin and leaving it purified.

3. Pat yourself down dry, don’t rub. Rubbing the towel can be harsh on your skin in winter and take away any beneficial natural moisture, whereas patting doesn’t.

4. Now to get you glowing! Our Goddess Self Tan is the perfect solution for dry skin. It is enriched with Shea Butter, Aloe Vera and Avocado Oil to nourish and hydrate your skin. The Goddess Self Tan will give you a professional and natural tanning result in just 2 hours.

5. Spritz your face with our NEW Face Tan Mist and use at any time of the day for a quick refreshment. Infused with cucumber, this cooling spritz will leave your skin feeling smooth & refreshed, while the hero ingredients of Witch Hazel, Green Tea, Aloe Vera and Chamomile will assist in reducing the pores & restoring your complexion.

6. To maintain your bronze and keep you hydrated we recommend using our Goddess Crème de la Crème. Enriched with Shea Butter, Cocoa Butter and Aloe Vera, Goddess Crème de la Crème is perfect to be used as an everyday body moisturiser to increase the longevity of your tan.

7. Go out and enjoy a hot chocolate with some friends then take an Instagram pic in your glowing skin and tag us @nakedtanofficial!

Don’t let the winter blues ruin your mood and skin, let us come to the rescue!

 How to Maintain a Spray Tanning Service During Cooler Months

Every year, around this time, we are inundated with emails from salons asking how they can keep business coming in over the colder months. So, if things are getting a little slow in the salon, don’t worry, you aren’t alone!

So, to help keep our Naked Tan goddesses busy, we thought we would make a little list of our 5 top tips and tricks…

  1. Loyalty cards:

Loyalty cards are a fun way to give back to your clients, while bringing business in. You can even purchase Naked Tan loyalty cards directly through us! The cards we sell offer your client their 6th tan free. It’s a great incentive for your client to return and make spray-tanning a part of the regular beauty regime.

  1. Offer discounts:

Any discount is a good discount! Taking even $5 off the price of your spray tans is a wonderful way to maintain work over winter. A popular strategy is to advertise this deal on social media, then state that to receive the deal customers should mention it when booking. That way you can see which customers you have brought in because of the discount!

  1. BFF- Best Fake (tan) Friend:

We love female friendships, so let’s reward them! If your client brings in a friend, they get 10% off their spray tans. You can pick the discount percent based on your salon pricing, but we have seen this deal offered in a variety of different ways. Some salons have a flash ‘buy one get one free’ Spray tan sale, or 5% off each. This is also an amazing way to broaden your clientele, by having your clients bring in customers that may not have used your services before.

 

  1. Speaking of best friends, social media is yours!

We all know that social media is taking over the business world, and chance are if you are reading this you probably have your salon set up online. If you aren’t already on it, we highly recommend creating an Instagram, particularly if you are looking for a younger clientele. This social media platform is an amazing way to showcase your salons unique style and come up with a fun aesthetic that will bring in customers. On Instagram and Facebook, you can also advertise all your deals, and show off your amazing spray tan skills (before and afters are always popular). The benefit of Instagram is it is easier to build a following than on Facebook, and you can tag any great client pics to broaden your reach.

 

  1. Collab!

Try reaching out to other businesses for collaborations, such as event or wedding planners, broadcasting networks etc. Companies that operate in the limelight all year are amazing to work with. Try contacting a local news station, or an events company and offer them a great deal on spray tans. This little tip is one people don’t take advantage of enough, and it is an incredibly effective way to ensure business year-round.

 

Well that’s that ladies and gents, our main tips on how to keep you busy through the cold months. Test out a variety of these tips to work out which is most effective for your salon. If you need any help we are always here, and if you have any ideas leave a comment below!

 

 

How to Prolong the Life of Your tan

One of the most common questions we get asked is “How can I make my tan last longer”. Sometimes you have events two weekends in a row, and want that tan looking fresh a week later- the life of a socialite can be hard!

If this is the case for you, we have a few hot tips!

– 

  1. Crème that body up: it’s no secret that hydrated skin looks best, but a lot of people don’t realise how vital it is for keeping your tan looking fresh. Apply our Crème De la Crème after every shower, and before you go to bed or after you wake up. Two applications daily should keep your skin looking lush.

  2. Face the facts: Our Face Tan Mist is any fake tanners’ best friend! Most people find that the tan on their face fades a lot quicker than body, and the reason for this is that most makeup has products or alcohol in it that will strip your tan. The face tan mist is a super refreshing spray with 5% DHA, so it works like gradual tan. Spray one or two times a day (or more) until you achieve your desired colour. It is so easy to use and an absolute staple in our lives. You will wonder how you ever lived without it!

  3. If you want to add some more colour: Our Gradual Tan is an amazing tan-extender. Apply once a day to add a new moisturising coat of tan to your skin. With 4% DHA this product will add some colour to that fading skin.

  4. No alcohol: Whoops did we scare you? You can still enjoy a glass of wine (or 5), we just don’t want you to wash your body with any product containing alcohol or SLS. Our amazing Cleanser is free of these two ingredients, and all other nasties. Wash in this bad boy and you will find your tan lasts so much longer. Plus, it contains our signature scent, so not only will you look like you just got back from a tropical holiday, but you will smell like it too!

  5. Get a little help from our fairy godmother: The Instant Tan will take you from rags to riches! Made up of beautiful natural products, this instant tan will give you an all over shimmer and bronze. This product will be your saving grace on the day of an event, because you can just pop it on and elevate the depth of your tan, then wash it off in the shower that night! You will be looking like Cinderella (post-makeover) in no time!

New Years Resolutions

We are proclaiming that 2019 will be the year of achievable resolutions and big dreams! What do we mean? Well we resolve to start making our bed in the morning, but we dream of holidaying in Hawaii!

We have compiled a cheeky list of tanning resolutions (and how to keep them) that you can incorporate into your new year. We promise these resolutions are easier than quitting chocolate…

  1. I resolve to start washing my tanning glove:

Run our Tanning Applicator Mitt under hot water until the water goes clear, then leave it out to dry.

  1. I resolve to moisturise everyday to prolong the life of my tan:

If you want hydrated skin (You should!) try using our Crème De La Crème, before and after your tan. Beauticians you can also apply it to the knees, elbows, feet and hands of clients. This acts as a moisture barrier, so that those dry areas don’t go too dark after a spray.

  1. I will stop wearing moisturiser, makeup or deodorant to my spray tan appointments:

Skip the products and go bare, it will save your beautician time and give you an easy-breezy-even tan. Wearing deodorant or moisturiser can cause product to not stick well to the skin, so we want to avoid them, if possible. Just like our products, we want you to be Au naturale!

  1. I will exfoliate and shave before tanning:

We all know that fake tan looks a million times better on fresh skin! Buffing away the dead skin cells will give you a gorgeous streak-free tan. Try using a combo of our Body Exfoliator and Tan Removing Mitt, for baby soft skin.

  1. I will Fake it:

At Naked Tan we believe strongly that we should all protect ourselves from the sun’s harmful UV rays. That means no crisping yourself at the beach! Far too many people are hurt from a life sun-baking, so this year slip slop slap (and pop on some Mousse when you get home).

  1. I will apply with an applicator mitt:

You’ve seen those tans before, the ones that have streaky marks and white patches. There are a few reasons for this; they were rushing, they applied in lines not circular motions or they weren’t using a Mitt. This year we are resolving to have no more zebra legs!

  1. I will not to use soap that strips my tan:People always ask us how to make their tans last longer and this is what we tell them: moisturise, stay hydrated and use the correct soap! People are often using harsh shower washes that contain alcohol or other ingredients that will strip your tan. Our Body Cleanser is made from all natural ingredients that will keep your tan looking fresh, and your skin clean. Thank us later…
  2. I will love myself:

Tan or no tan, this is the year to show yourself love, goddess. Life is too short, so grab it with both hands (also grab a mimosa, because girl, you deserve it!)

Happy 2019 goddesses! We are wishing for nothing but happiness for all of you. May this year be the year you achieve your dreams, and finally learn how to fake tan your ankles properly.

Our Best selling Face Tan Mist

It has been a busy year at Naked Tan and we could not wait to share our new product with you! Our phones and socials have been abuzz with positive feedback on our Face Tan Mist, and we want you to try it too! Read on and find out why this is our new holy grail product.

How to use:

Simply spritz generously over your face and let it dry! We usually spray our Face Tan Mist before bed, so we wake up with a beautiful bronze glow. However, you can also spray in the morning, wait till it dries and apply your makeup over the top! It is a beautiful base as it tightens your skin and shrinks those pores. Hot Tip: Spray, let it dry, then apply our Creme De La Creme, to add an extra layer or moisture.

The bronze that develops is natural and build-able, meaning that depending on your skin tone you can spray more or less often, to create a custom colour.

Why to use:

This product is the most refreshing thing we have ever put on our skin! The ingredients of Witch Hazel, Green Tea, Aloe Vera and Chamomile make your skin feel plump and smooth. While at the same time the tanning agents are working to even your skin tone and give you a glow that will have you skipping foundation!

This product is your fairy godmother, a few quick sprays and your makeover is underway. Like always, we are looking out for the busy woman, we love our products to be glam on the go.

As well as being convenient, this product can help extend the life of your tan. The alcohol in makeup naturally wears away at a fake tan, meaning that many of us find that our face is the first place to fade. Just spritz the mist and you will keep your face looking as gorgeous and brown as your body!

We have also found that this product is great for those of us with sensitive or breakout prone skin, as the witch hazel works wonders on oily skin. Keep those pores free of foundation and watch your skin begin to glow from within.

We promise you that you will love this product- it’s a saving grace for all of us busy, pale-faced women! even a goddess needs a little help sometimes…

Our Melbourne Guide

It’s no secret that Naked Tan is stocked in some amazing salons worldwide, but for today we thought we would narrow in on Australia’s city of culture- Melbourne! Coming into the festive season we thought we would highlight some great things to do (and salons to go to!).

Reminder: Below are just some of our amazing salons that happen to be close to popular events, but we have so many more. So, always call or check our salon locator if you are looking to find a salon that stocks Naked Tan. Click Here to Check It Out.

 –

1.Off the races? Head down to Flemington and meet the team at Vanity Hair and Beauty Salon. The best accessories a girl can have for an event are a smile and tan (We may be biased).

 2.Speaking from experience, you must attend the inflatable regatta! This event is run several times a year, the next one being February 24th. Basically, you float down the Yarra river in an inflatable donut, you can bring drinks and snacks, and it’s just a lovely way to spend the day. If you are wanting to be nice and bronzed while you are out in the sun, we have several salons close to the river, like Glam Beauty & Nails or Utopia Skin Solutions.

 3.The Australian Open! An iconic Aussie event that brings in hundreds of thousands of visitors. Watching the greats battle it out is an experience not to be missed. If you haven’t been before, be warned, people get dolled up for this event (in hopes of stealing Federer’s heart?). This is a great excuse to pop on a tan, wear your best white dress and enjoy an unbelievable event.

 4. If you fancy a relaxing weekend indoors, we would suggest staying at a resort. They are one stop-shops for pampering, whether it be a tan, a massage or a sauna. If a little bit of you time in the big smoke sounds good, we have a few great resorts in the city, one that is in the CBD is One Spa RACV City Club Melbourne.

 5. If you are anything like us, you are always looking for an excuse to get dolled up. Well there is no better excuse in Melbourne than the Opera. This November you could be haunted by the phantom of the opera at Her Majesty’s theatre. Located close by is Waxology South Melbourne for all of your glam needs.


There is always millions of things to do in a city buzzing with art, culture, music and events. Take the time these holidays to visit our friends in Victoria, we assure you, you will not be disappointed.

Happy Tanning Melbournites!

How To: Remove Fake Tan From Clothing

If you’re anything like us, you’ve grappled with more than a couple of tan stains. We are thankful you don’t have to sleep in Naked Tan to look beautiful and Chocolate – otherwise w­­­e would be bleaching our sheets every week!
We don’t want you to stop wearing white on a night out for fear of ruining your tops (those underarm tan runs can be the worst)- so we have devised a list of our go-to tan removal tips!

An important disclaimer: If you have any delicate fabrics like silk or linen consult a dry-cleaner before attempting to remove it yourself. These kinds of fabrics can damage easily, so better safe than sorry! 

1.Tan doesn’t set into our skin immediately, and it is much the same for clothes- so timing is everything

2.Always check the ‘garment care’ tags, sometimes your fabric may have specific washing instructions

3.Don’t rub anything yet! We don’t want to ruin your beautiful clothes by spreading the tan further.

4.Flip the fabric over and run cold water through the stain- you’re basically trying to push it out of the fabric.

5.Cotton fabrics will wash out tan a lot easier than others, the ingredients within tan don’t cause permanent stains to cotton. So that oversized t-shirt you marinate in should be safe! Your regular washing routine should get it out.

6.Treat the stained area with a water and dish soap/ fabric detergent mix. Now be gentle with this next part- take your finger tips and rub your homemade solution into the stain for 1-2 minutes, then pop it in the wash (cold water cycle only).

7.If your clothes are white, you are in luck. Bleach is very effective in removing stains, just apply it to the effected area and then ,as always, put it through the wash on cold.

CRUCIAL: do not wash on hot or leave in the sun until the tan is removed. Unlike jelly, tan sets in heat.


If all else fails call: your mum or your dry-cleaner 😉 

How to Tan Your Skin Type

We know we all wish that our skin was pore free, plump and dewy but unfortunately that’s just not the case! Sometimes your tanning process needs to be tweaked so that you are taking care of your bodies biggest organ. Read below to find out some helpful tips, and if you have a skin type or issue that hasn’t been touched on, contact us and we can tailor make a tanning routine for you!

 

Dry skin:

Our best tip for dry skin may seem obvious, but we assure you it’s a step people often miss- Moisturise! You should apply a healthy dose of moisturiser all over your body in the days leading up to your tan and drink plenty of water, we recommend using our Crème De la creme. Continue to moisturise every day after you tan too, this will mean your tan won’t appear cracked and will last longer.

 

Sensitive skin:

If you have ultra-sensitive skin our heart goes out to you! It can be tricky to try new products, but we have some tips to make life a little easier for you. If you are aware of what ingredients trigger a reaction for you, you can always contact us and we will be able to send you a MDS (material data sheet). This sheet will tell you every ingredient we have in our products, all of which are natural and organic based.

If you are getting a spray tan we always recommend coming in at least a day before for a patch test. You should be able to tell if you are going to have a reaction and determine whether you would still like to go ahead with the tan.

If you ever have any questions regarding our ingredients or require a patch test, don’t hesitate to ask!

 

Sweaty:

It’s your lucky day! We have developed a spray tan just for you. Our Water-Resistant spray tan is a godsend for any ladies who grapple with the heat or have more oily skin. Once sprayed you can sweat without worry and when you wash it off there won’t be any marks or streaks. It’s a miracle! We have also found this is great for women going through menopause, who might experience those pesky hot flushes.

 

Acne-prone:

Our one big tip for those of you who experience acne is to close your pores! Many of us will have a shower before we apply tanner, but you should always make sure that your shower ends with at least 30 seconds in cold water. Hot water will open your pores up and cold water closes them- it’s as simple as that! By doing this you will be helping keep those blemishes at bay.

 

Happy Tanning Goddesses!

Our Ultimate Tanning Routine

Holiday season is upon on us, and that means lots of fake tanning! So we’ve created the perfect tanning routine that will turn you into a pro in no time. We want you feeling like the natural beauty you are!

 

 

 

 

 

Preparation: 12-24 hours before you plan to tan

Like a house needs a good foundation, so does a fake tan! it’s a personal choice whether you want to shave or not, but a tan does apply a little easier onto smooth skin. Next step, jump in a hot shower (this will open your pores) and use an Exfoliator Mitt and Body Exfoliator scrub to slough away that dead skin. Be careful if you have sensitive skin, you don’t want to be too rough and aggravate it.  A great product to use now is our Body Cleanser, it will make your skin super soft and the aloe vera will soothe any redness caused by exfoliating.

Now hop out of the shower and lather yourself in moisturiser- we recommend the crème de la crème! Your skin will drink it all up, leaving you feeling soft as silk.

We recommend doing all of this 12-24 hours before you plan on tanning, so that your pores are closed and your moisturiser has sunk in. If you don’t have 12 hours, give it at least 1-2 after showering to tan. As well as this, after you have exfoliated, turn on the cold water for a minute to close all your pores up again.

 

 

 

 

Application: At least a day before your event

Get out your Tanning mitt and get in front of a mirror! First things first, apply some creme de la creme to your dry areas; elbows, knees and hands. By doing this you will stop the tan caking into the skin and appearing dark on these spots. Next, apply an even layer of the Goddess Bronzing Mousse all over your body in circular motions, to ensure a streak free finish. Check in the mirror that you haven’t missed any spots! Then wait until your skin feels dry to touch and put your clothes back on.

Leave it on for 2-4 hours before washing it off, the longer you leave it the darker you will go. So, if you have fair skin naturally and want a more subtle look, stick to the 2 hour mark. Once you have washed it off, pat yourself dry with a towel and then your tan will begin to develop, it will reach its peak in about 6 hours.

 

 

 

 

 

Maintenance

Now that your tan is all washed off and your feeling fabulous, don’t race out the door! You should moisturise once you’ve hopped out of the shower, and then keep up this moisturising everyday to prolong the life of your tan. Drinking plenty of water and not swimming or exercising strenuously will also help keep your tan for longer!  Our gradual tanner can also be used everyday to deepen the colour.

Naked Tan Formal Tips!

Spring has arrived and festive season is all around us! Naked Tan have the perfect tan for your formals, weddings and upcoming events! We are true believers that no outfit is complete without a tan.

Here are a few of our formal hot tips when spray tanning:

If it is your first time getting a spray tan, we recommend a light shade such as tanned. It is always a bit nerve wracking getting a spray tan so it is always best to gradually build up to the perfect colour for you!

 

Get your spray tan 2 days before. Having your spray tan two days before your formal, wedding or event will allow for any left over spray tan to be washed off. We would hate for you to get any tan on your beautiful gown!

 

Wearing white? Go a shade down! If you are wearing white we suggested going a lighter shade than what you usually would. As the contrast between white and tan is significant.

 

Get a bunch of girlfriends and book your spray tans together, make it a fun occasion for everyone!

 

Naked Tan ABIA Tanning Sponsor!

Naked Tan were very proud to be a major sponsor at the Australian Beauty Industry Awards for a fourth consecutive year. Naked Tan would like to congratulate all of the beauty salons and companies involved, we loved celebrating your hard work with you!

The below article was originally published by Mocha Publlishing

The Star, Sydney, was the place to be on Sunday 9th September 2018, where around 600 glamorous and excited guests arrived for the annual Australian Beauty Industry Awards (ABIA’s) gala dinner. The evening kicked off with arrival champagne followed by resident host and MC for the evening, Mr Will Fennell, introducing the fabulous LED Dancers to kick of an incredible night of nights!

 

Winners were announced in 23 categories including 2018 ABIA Refectocil Hall of Fame recipient – Riana Janse Van Rensburg.

 

The Education Category was once again split into 2 awards for Individual and Organisation and was taken out by Elle Wilson of Brow Secrets and The Box Hill Institute respectively.

 

Recognised through an online voting system and following the announcement of the state Wholesaler of the Year winners in May, the overall Australian Winner was announced on the night as The Global Beauty Group

 

Following on from last year and with an unprecedented spike in the number of entries, the Beauty Salon/Spa of the year categories were split into State categories for both 4 Treatment rooms or less and 5 Treatment rooms or more. In a grand finale, the two Australian Salon/Spas of the year were awarded, determined by the highest ranking amongst the State winners. Australian Beauty Salon/Spa of the Year – 4 Treatment Rooms or less was won for the 2nd year running by The Temple Skincare and Australian Beauty Salon/Spa of the Year – 5 Treatment Rooms or more by HUD Skin and Body

 

“Once again we outgrew our venue from last year and hopefully have found a home for the ABIA’s for many years to come at The Star which will be able to cater for even more growth year on year.” said owner, Linda Woodhead. “The introduction of State Categories last year proved to be a successful decision with the number of entrants, this year, once again doubling in size. Having a large number of finalists, allows many salons to reap the rewards of recognition and with lots of new names this year we can only imagine the growth that the ABIA’s is still yet to enjoy. To have over 600 people attend the gala, when the awards are only 7 years old, is truly a testament to the industry and we are so honoured to facilitate such an inspiring event.”

Spray Tanning for First-timers: What You Should Know About It

Many look a lot better when they have a little color. This is the reason why spray tan is the hottest trend these days. Numerous people are turning to spray tanning to get that stunning bronze glow. In the past, people prefer to get tanned naturally, but since prolonged exposure under the sun is harmful to the skin, it gained a bad reputation. Even tanning beds are not a good thing these days.

Before considering instant tan, you should learn the basics of spray tanning. Here are things that you should know about it:

 

What is spray tanning?

Spray tanning is considered sunless tanning. It is the application of fine mist spray on your body. Best spray tan is designed having DHA (Dihydroxyacetone). DHA reacts to the skin by turning it tan or bronze. The effect lasts from three to seven days. Generally, it is safe for the skin. However, it does not provide any protection against UV rays.

 

What are the methods of spray tanning?

Many celebrities and models prefer spray tanning because it is easy to use and it is not time-consuming. There are three methods you can consider here. The first method is going to a tanning salon with booths; the booths are equipped with nozzles that are capable of spraying the entire body with the tanning solution. If you are not up for it, spray tanning can be administered using airbrush; this is similar to what the painters use. Airbrush is smaller and portable compared to booths. Finally, you can get a spray tan from a bottle. Many companies produce spray tanning products having the same ingredients provided in salons or airbrushes.

 

What are the pros and cons of spray tanning?

Before learning about the pros and cons of fake tan, you should know that regardless of the forms (lotions, cream, and mousse) of self-tanning, they use the same active ingredient – DHA. The good thing about spray tanning is it is easy to use – after blending, and you can instantly spray it on your entire body. Another benefit is it dries rapidly compared to other tanning products. As for the color, it varies from one person to another.

 

For those that do not like spray tanning, the biggest downside is the cost. You should be aware that one session can cost anywhere from $25 to $50 depending on the place. This is more expensive compared to using tanning lotions and creams. Another downside is you have to continuously experiment to get the blend that you like. Remember that everyone has different skin chemistry. What worked for the others might not work for you. With this, you need to constantly experiment and see what works best for you.

 

How to prepare for your first tanning session?

As soon as you give tanning spray a chance, you should schedule for an appointment. Before going, make sure that you shaved or wax. Do not forget to exfoliate your skin before you come to your appointment for better results. When you are in the salon, remove the makeup, moisturiser or deodorant before allowing them to spray. More importantly, before application, apply a meager amount of Vaseline on your knees, ankles, palms, and elbows. Do not forget to wear a shower cap and put lip balm on your lips.

 

 

Extra services to make your salon GLOW!

Are you wanting to take your salon to the next level and go above and beyond with your services? Make your salon a stand out spray tan store with our tips!

 

  1. Begin the spray tan with a hand massage.

Make your client feel comfortable by offering a hand massage prior to the spray tan. It is important to moisturise the hands prior to beginning the spray tan as this area of the skin is dry. We recommend using our Crème de la Crème moisturiser, this product contains no SLS and smells like coconuts!

  1. Expand your spray tan range with our LUXE solution.

The Naked Tan LUXE solutions have been designed to solve problems. The Water-Resistant Tan has been designed for when it is raining, or for clients who come in sweating on a hot day. Whilst the bronzer is processing your clients will be able to get rain droplets on their skin or break out in a sweat at the gym without having to worry about damaging the tan. Once the spray tan has been rinsed off under a cool shower the tan will develop flawless meaning your client will not come back complaining about a damaged tan!

  1. Stock up on retail products

Often your spray tan clients will want to know how to extend the life of their tan or want to know what steps to take when preparing for a fresh new tan. Naked Tan have a range of skin care products for you to sell in your salon!

How long does fake tan last?

If you look after your fake tan properly and implement a thorough tanning routine where you prepare, tan and maintain you will maximise the result of your self tan. A fake tan will generally last 5-7 days, depending on your daily activities. After a Naked Tan Spray or applying the self-tan you should wait 2-4 hours before showering or rinsing. You will not reach your maximum result until 8-12 hours later. Your tan will look its best for 3 days following application before starting to fade.

Make sure you are applying the Crème de la crème moisturiser after every shower, or to add a subtle bit of ongoing colour try the Naked Tan Gradual Tan.

Always remember to pat yourself down after a shower rather than drag the towel along your skin and to keep out of swimming pools/spas!

Happy Tanning!! XX

5 Tips for the Perfect Winter Glow with Naked Tan

Winter is coming to Australia! Just because the weather is dull, your skin shouldn’t suffer or be neglected. After all; it is the biggest organ on the human body – fact! Whether you’re juggling a career with kids or casual jobs with essays, we know most modern women don’t have the time to sit in the weak winter sun for hours to get the perfect sun kissed glow… although that’s the dream! At Naked Tan, we understand this and strive to give you the effortlessly perfect winter glow made specifically for women on the go.

 

Read on for 5 simple tips on getting that perfect golden tan when the weather is being less than agreeable.

 

  1. Adjust your summer shade to make it winter worthy:

A wise woman once said: the sign of a great spray tan is that no one should know you have one. It’s great getting rid of the winter blues with a “I just took a trip to Bali” tan, but it just won’t do for when its 15 degrees outside and overcast. We suggest a bit more subtlety for the cooler days. Try something more understated than your summer tan – instead of going fives shades darker, try going two. We can give you a patch test to see which shade best suits your skin tone to give you a flawless golden tinge.

 

  1. Get your skin ready:

As the weather gets cooler, your skin can get drier. To combat dry, flaky skin and get the best experience & results, you need to amp-up your winter skin routine. This means taking extra care of your skin before and after the procedure to maintain it. The dry winter strips your skin of natural oils leaving it flaky. For the pre-spray tan routine, exfoliate with Naked Tan Goddess Body Exfoliator and remove body hair so your body is a smooth canvas you can paint the perfect shade on to. Why not take a look at the full range special package here?

 

  1. Post-spray tan tips:

A hot shower sounds comforting for the cold, but it isn’t ideal for your spray tan and skin. Go easy on the heat so you don’t remove too much colour and leave your skin dry. Try lukewarm with our Naked Tan Goddess Body Cleanser to rehydrate your skin. Then, moisturise the dryness off with Naked Tan Goddess Crème de la Crème infused with Shea Butter, Cocoa Butter and Aloe Vera specifically made for post-spray tan care.

 

  1. Make it last:

A streaky or creasy tan is a major fashion faux pas. It’s important to take care of your skin after the tan so you get the best out of it. This doesn’t mean you have to spend hours of your precious time on it. An easy fix? Baby powder your armpits, elbows, and knees to get rid of the sweat and slap on some Goddess Instant Tan; a bronzer that will give your already radiant skin a boost to help maintain colour. Good-bye pale skin and streaks… hello even, sun-kissed skin.

 

  1. Don’t let the gloom get to you:

Winter stresses us out as well but don’t let it get to you. Slip on your most comfortable pair of pyjamas & baggiest t-shirt and book an appointment with us for a boost of confidence that comes with the perfectly applied winter tan. Maybe this will get rid of mild seasonal affective disorder?

 

We know, beauty isn’t skin-deep. But it doesn’t hurt to complement your inner goddess with a perfectly bronzed exterior. Don’t end up orange, uneven or patchy (looking like Donald Trump is always a faux pas) and try your next spray tan with Naked Tan. We promise you, the sexy sliver of golden skin underneath your trench and thigh highs will be the talk of town. Who said tanning is only for summer? Not us!

How to become a stand out beauty salon!

 

Are you stuck for ideas on how to ensure your salon is staying competitive with other beauty salons near you? Beauty trends are continually evolving and changing, as are the beauty products your clients are demanding from your service.

 

Naked Tan has a range of posters and POS assists available for you to make your beauty salon interesting and engaging. You can use posters to help promote other services or beauty products that you sell in your beauty salon. When completing a treatment this is a great opportunity for your clients to look around and read your posters sparking conversation. Next time you place an order be sure to ask the friendly Naked Tan team about their range of POS.

 

Loyalty programs and competitions are a great way to ensure you are engaging with your current customers but also bringing awareness to your salon amongst other potential clients. Sometimes collaborating with another brand or businesses can also help broaden your network.

 

Ensuring you are showcasing your beauty work online and interactive with your online community is essential when pushing your beauty salon out to the community. Taking before and after photos, or small videos through a treatment builds excellent digital content as it shows your client first hand what they should expect from your beauty service. Often customers will see your work online and come to your beauty salon because of this.

 

By stocking trending or premium products also helps in drawing in new clients to your salon. If your salon is not stocking the problem solving Naked tan Luxe range you need get in touch with the Naked Tan. The three professional spray tanning products Slimming Tan, 20min Tan and Water Resistant Tan cater to all occasions demands and needs. You can find out more about the LUXE range here.

Simply apply the product to your skin with the Naked Tan Tanning Applicator Mitt and watch as your pale skin turns into a shimmering bronzed babe!

 

The Instant Tan is made of tanning bronzer, which means it has no actual fake tan, once washed off your skin will go back to being pale!  But talk about a quick and easy tanning solution right!? Naked Tan recommend applying this product to your legs, arms and chest region for the ultimate GLOW!

Difference between a Self Tan and a Mousse!?

If you’re new to the fake tanning game and are confused about the difference in tanning products Naked Tan are here to help! Over the years different textures and colours have entered the tanning industry. Finding the right sunless tanning product for your skin and needs is really important in ensuring you get the flawless tan!

 

Self -Tan and a tanning mousse are two very different products. Both tanning products will leave your skin golden and bronzed! The difference in the fake tan products however is that the Self Tan is a cream texture similar to that of a moisturiser whilst a tanning Mousse is a foam texture. The Self Tan Cream entered the industry first and is the product leader of DIY tanning. Self Tanning cream is popular amongst those who don’t feel as confident converting over to the foam. The Naked Tan Goddess Self Tan comes in one colour with a gentle 10% DHA, this means it will develop as a medium tan.

 

Fake tan foam is an easy product to use as the bronzer shows up on the skin clearly allowing for you to see the areas you have not yet applied fake tan to, meaning no streaky tans! Naked Tan offer two colours in this product the Tanned Bronzing Mousse and the Chocolate Bronzing Mousse. The tanned is the same colour as the Goddess Self Tan cream creating a medium tan whilst the Chocolate Bronzing Mousse is an ultra dark tan.

 

Both the Goddess Self Tan and Goddess Bronzing Mousse should be applied to the entire body and left on to develop a bronzed tan for 2-4 hours, then rinsed off and pat dried. When applying your fake tan be sure to use the Naked Tan Applicator Mitt for flawless results.

How to clean your spray tan equipment

It is important to clean your spray tanning equipment regularly to help ensure longevity and efficiency. It also promotes a professional, clean look in your beauty salon, this is important for clients first impressions. To clean the machine and hose, simply wipe over with a damp cloth. This should ideally be done at the end of each day to avoid any build up of overspray on your machine.

 

To Clean Your Machine Filter

The filter is located at the base of the machine. It is vital that the filter and cover are cleaned at least once a week, depending on spray tan volume. The filter protects the machines internal motor from overspray, if not maintained correctly your equipment risks getting damaged and breaking.

 

Remove the filter cover and wipe over with a damp cloth to clean.

 

Remove the black filter and hold under running water until clean.

 

Leave the filter to air dry* over night, once dried you may insert the filter into your spray tan machine.

 

*never replace the filter or cover until fully dry, and NEVER use your Naked Tan spray tan machine unless the filter and cover are both securely in place.

 

To Clean Your Naked Tan Spray Gun

To ensure your Naked Tan Tanning Pro gun is maintained correctly, and you are getting the best results from your equipment, we recommend cleaning your spray tan guns at the end of every day. When cleaning your spray tan gun follow these simple instructions:

 

Pour water into the cup and screw into the gun.

 

Attach the gun to the hose and adjust to setting 8 to clean.

 

Turn the machine onto full power, holding the gun over the sink pull the trigger and allow the water to blow through the gun.

 

Continue spraying the water until the water appears clear. You can test this by holding a cloth, or paper towel in front of the nozzle.

 

Once the water is coming through and appears to be clear, unscrew the cup from the gun, rinse thoroughly and leave aside to air dry.

 

To dry the gun, begin by removing the hose from the guns handle. With air still blowing from the hose, hold the hose below the suction tube inside the gun while squeezing the trigger so the guns nozzle is open. Hold for approximately 20 seconds to ensure this section of your gun is dry. NEVER TRY TO REMOVE THE SUCTION TUBE, THIS IS A FIXED PART OF THE GUN.

 

When your gun is cleaned and dried correctly the guns pin will appear white and dry, with no traces of tanning solution.

 

To clean the outer part of the gun wipe over with a damp cloth. Then leave the gun and cup to dry on a towel over night. Always remember to readjust the gun to your preferred setting before your next spray tan! (recommended setting 3 or 4)

 

*NEVER SPRAY WITH A WET OR DAMP GUN, WATER MIXED WITH YOUR TANNING SOLUTION WILL CONTAMINATE THE PRODUCT AND MAY PREVENT THE TAN FROM DEVELOPING. ALWAYS ENSURE YOUR GUN IS FULLY DRY BEFORE USE
