A. The JLO has a neutral undertone suitable for most skin types. This is our most versatiletan, hence why we always say, “When in doubt, choose JLO!” You will be radiant with thatnatural, golden Latina glow. If you typically burn easy or have very dry skin, the JLO will beyour new BFF.
A. The Kardashian is for our clients who are never dark enough! The bronzer in this solution with have you looking like you just stepped off the beach. Containing the strongest level of DHA available, you will LOVE this dark and incredibly natural tan. If you’re in a time crunch and need an “emergency tan”, this solution can be used as a rapid tan and washed within 2-6hours based on how dark you want to be.

A. As a first timer, who isn't?! As a new client, your first appointment will include a consultation where we ask all the right questions that will ultimately allow us to pick the perfect solution that is best suited for your skin undertones. One of the main reasons tans can turn orange is due to clients wearing their tan longer than instructed thinking it will make them darker. This is NOT true! To ensure your tan doesn't oversaturate, follow your rinse time instructions we give you to get the perfect, natural glow!
For clients who hate the thought of sleeping in their tan or are in a time crunch, this is a great option! We apply this tan with an airbrush technique allowing for an incredibly natural and flawless tan. AND, you can rinse within 2-6 hours based on dark you want to be.

A. Yes! On Tuesdays only, we offer $25 tans for you and your bestie. You will only book onetime slot, but you can bring a friend and both of you must use the same solution. Friends who tan together, stay together!We also offer a Troy Student Tan Special! If you are a college student at Troy University, you can book this option to enjoy our JLO solution (regularly priced at $45) for only $35!
For first time clients, it usually takes around 25-30 min appointment to allow time for your consultation and answer any questions. For our clients who tan with us regularly, it usually only takes 15-20 min.
Please come to your appointment wearing dark, loose-fitting clothing! Avoid: leggings, sports bras, socks, tennis shoes, tight tank tops, etc. If it is raining, please come prepared and bring lots of layers/gear to protect your tan! Additionally, please make sure to remove all make-up and products. This means, no lotion, perfume, or deodorant!
We always tell our clients to wear whatever they want OR don’t want to wear! What you choose to wear is 110% based on your comfortability. We promise - we have seen it all and it doesn’t matter to us either way!
GREAT question and SUPER important! Please shave and exfoliate 1-2 days before your appointment. Prepping your skin through exfoliation is extremely important ensuring all those old, dead skin cells are washed away so that we’re working with a new, fresh canvas! HYRDATE & MOISTURIZE (and we cannot stress this enough). Make sure you’re drinking lots of water and moisturizing with a sulfate-free lotion (the 1st ingredient listed on the label should be water) with no mineral oil for at least 3 consecutive days before your appointment. Please avoid using bar soap, Dove soap, or any soap with sulfates – this can cause streaking. The life of your tan is 50% your prep/aftercare and 50% our application/mixing method.
Again, hydrate and moisturize! Please avoid moisture of any kind (water, sweat, etc.) until your instructed rinse time. Begin moisturizing with a tan-safe lotion directly after your first shower. Things like shaving, soaking in a hot bath, rubbing with a towel after showers, cream-based body washes such as Dove, will cause your tan to fade faster.
Haven’t you heard?! Spray tans are like magic. Even after you rinse, your tan will continue to develop for 12 hours. That’s why we always recommend getting your spray tan 2 days before your special event. On the second day, your tan has fully developed into the perfect glow!
Again, the life of your tan is 50% your part (pre and post care) and 50% our part (solution choice, knowledge and application technique). Ask us about our Hydrating Tan Extender or Tan Me BB that can extend the life of your tan up to an extra week!
Every client’s rinse time will be different. Because of this, it is extremely important you follow the rinse-time instructions your tech gives you! For your first shower, you should only RINSE with lukewarm water and rub your body with your hand. You will see color rinsing off in the shower – that is completely normal and we want that to happen! Have no fear, your tan is not coming off. This is just the top layer of cosmetic bronzer!
Stay away from cream-based body washed and use gel-based washes free of mineral oil, sulfates, parabens, and alcohol. Some of our favorites include Infinity Sun’s PHydra-Luxe Optimizing Body Wash (which can be purchased through us – just ask your tech at your appointment) or the Love Beauty And Planet brand (which can be purchased at your local drugstore).
The most moisturizing product you can use is Infinity Sun’s Hydrating Skin Tan Extender! It is a silky, smooth serum containing a minimum amount of DHA – meaning, this helps to not only extend your tan, but you will gradually get darker! If you hate the texture of lotion, but have committed to the tan life – you need this product like yesterday. Ask your tech to purchase during your appointment! If you don’t mind the texture of lotion, we recommend a tan-safe brand such as Hempz.
Exfoliation is key! We highly recommend Infinity Sun’s Exfoliating Skin Renewal Body Mask.You will apply a thin layer, leaving it on for 15-20 minutes to let the enzymatic exfoliation work its magic! The pineapple enzymes work to naturally exfoliate and break down your dead skin cells in a non-abrasive way, revealing perfectly polished smooth skin. After the mask has fully soaked into your skin, hop in the shower and lightly go over your body with an exfoliating mitt ensuring you’re not scrubbing too abrasively.
I have a special event I want a spray tan for. When should I schedule my tan?A. 2 days before your special event is perfect! Even after you rinse, your tan will continue to develop. By day two, your tan is perfect having reached its maximum level of radiant glow!Example: Brides getting married on Saturday should schedule their appointment on Thursday.
While we would LOVE to see you, let’s wait! Spray tanning over a sunburn or peeling skin will not help to even out your skin. Your skin needs time to heal – drink lots of water and moisturize.
A lot of our Iconic Babes are expecting mamas! It is 100% safe; however, we recommend consulting with your doctor just to be on the safe side.
Moisture and hydrate as much as you can prior to your appointment (no moisturizing the day of). If you still have stubborn, dry areas on the day of your appointment – let your tech know and she can apply a barrier cream to ensure solution doesn’t heavily stick to those areas.
It won’t ruin your sheets, but we can’t promise a little bronzer won’t transfer! If this happens, just toss those sheets in the washer and you’re good to go! Most of our clients sleep in their tan and have no problem. However, if you know you’re a wiggle worm and there’s a good chance you may wake up upside down, diagonal, or sideways – you are welcome to wear dark, loose-fitting clothing to bed.
Yes! As long as your waxing appointment is at least 1-2 full days before your appointment.Your spray tan should be the last stop on your beauty journey!
Always yes to SPF! Our tans do not include SPF, meaning you can still get sunburnt. Be sure to apply an oil-free, alcohol-free sunscreen to ensure your skin and tan are well-protected. You can take a dip in the water, but please be aware that submerging in any kind of water for an extended period of time will decrease the life of your tan. Any kind of extra hot water or water containing chemicals will also cause your tan to fade faster.
