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 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.

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

Mixing the Naked Tan Signature Range

When selecting the Naked Tan Solution to spray tan your client in it is essential you colour consult them first. This is through assessing their skin tone and chatting to your client about the colour they wish to achieve. For those clients who have olive complexion Naked Tan recommend spray tanning in either the Chocolate or Exotic Solutions. For those with fair skin Naked Tan recommend the Naked Tan Natural Solution or Naked Tan Tanned Solution.

Naked Tan Spray Tan Tones

It is important to note that it is okay to mix Naked Tan Solutions together. This may occur when your solution is running out of date or when a client wants to go an in between colour. Naked Tan suggest mixing a cooler solution such as the Naked Tan Chocolate or Naked Tan Exotic with a warmer spray tan solution such as Naked Tan Natural or Naked Tan Tanned. Combinations you may wish to mix include…

What to do before and after a tan!

If you are someone who fake tans weekly you would know that there are plenty of tips and tricks to get the best result from your spray tan or tanning mousse. Implementing a tanning routine can be hard when you’re rushing about or have decided to apply your tan last minute. However, if you want a flawless long lasting golden bronze there are steps you NEED to take before and after you apply your tan.

 

PREPARING

If you do not exfoliate your skin regularly we recommend introducing exfoliation into your tanning routine 12-24 hours before you are going to tan. Exfoliation removes any dead skin cells and helps with blood circulation; this will assist in leaving your skin glowing and healthy. The Naked Tan Goddess Body Exfoliator is a unique formula that combines moisture rich coconut oil with smooth pumice grains and bamboo powder to gently exfoliate, leaving your skin soft smooth and tan ready! Leading up to your fake tan you also want to avoid any products that will leave a film or coating layer over your skin as this can create a barrier and prevent your tan from reaching its full result! The Naked Tan Goddess Body Cleanser is SLS free, which means you can use this product BEFORE or AFTER your tan without stripping or fading the fake tan. The Naked Tan Goddess Body Cleanser is suitable for every skin type even the most sensitive. This tanning product will moisturise your skin and leave it purified, invigorated and perfectly tanned.

 

MAINTAINING
After your tan it is so important to keep your skin hydrated to help extend the longevity of your tan, maintaining a healthy glow! The Naked Tan Creme de La Creme is the ideal daily moisturiser, filled with Coco and Shea butter not only will your skin be silky smooth and soft but also smell like coconuts! Another hot tip is to apply the Naked Tan Goddess Instant Tan when you feel your tan is starting to fade. This product is a shimmer cream which leaves your skin sparkling and bronzed. The Goddess Instant Tan contains no actual tan in the product and washes off once you shower.

 

Benefits of sunless tanning.

Sun baking has become a trend of the past as we have learnt about the harmful damage the sun is having on our skin. Naked Tan is the perfect product for men and women who wish to have a summer glow without being exposed to harmful UV rays from the sun.

 

Not only do the UV rays increase your chances of getting skin cancer, they also irreparably damage the collagen in your skin, which is responsible for keeping your skin firm and smooth. Once the collagen is broken down wrinkles will result. Sunspots are also another side effect of spending too much time sunbaking! Up to 80% of premature skin aging, is caused from the exposure to the sun. Naked Tan is the best spray tan option to prevent the risk of damage to your skin so be sun smart and get a healthy Naked Tan.

 

Not only is there health benefits involved with sunless tanning but also convenience and result factors. Naked Tan offers different shades for every skin type, this means you can pick how dark you want your tan. Having complete control over how light or dark your tan will come out is a great treat as you can have a tan that evens out your skin complexion or go for something a bit heavier when going out with the girls!

 

Fake Tanning also means that you don’t have to put up with contrasting tan lines from where you wore your swim wear. You no longer have to take the time out of your weekend to lay in the sun to get your glow on! Fake Tanning is also an extremely fast result; once your tan is showered you will notice an immediate difference in your skin tone.

What makes the Naked Tan Chocolate Mousse so great!?

If you’re after a flawless golden fake tan you need to get your hands on the Naked Tan Chocolate Mousse! I bet you’re thinking what makes this product so different to other fake tans? Well the Naked Tan 2hr Chocolate Mousse has 14% DHA which will give you an ultra dark result of up to 4-6 shades darker than your natural skin tone.

The Naked Tan Chocolate Mousse is a foam texture and a 2hr tan! This means you don’t have to sleep in your fake tan over night. Naked Tan recommend leaving the product on for no longer than 4 hours as after this time frame you will start to experience discolouration. When applying your fake tan ensure you use a Naked Tan Applicator Mitt for a full result. Using your hand can result in stained hands and an uneven application.

Once showered, your tan will continue to develop for up to 16 hours, so do not expect to see a full result until then!  The Naked Tan Chocolate Mousse creates a golden glow and is the perfect product for when you don’t have time to visit your Naked Tan stockist for a spray tan!

After your tan it is so important to keep your skin hydrated to help extend the longevity of your tan. The Naked Tan Creme de La Creme is the ideal daily moisturiser, filled with Coco and Shea butter not only will your skin be silky smooth and soft but also smell like coconuts! YUM
