Glow Barre


+ Exfoliate with an oil-free exfoliant
+ Avoid bar soap and oil-based products (especially Dove)
+ Shave at least 8 hours before your tan using a disposable razor without moisture strips to avoid streaking
+ Thoroughly moisturize, focusing on dry spots like elbows, ankles and knees

+ Arrive lotion, makeup, deodorant and perfume free (if needed, makeup and deodorant can be removed at the salon)
+ Any other services (waxing, manicures and pedicures) should be performed prior (and inform the tech to avoid using lotion or oil as well!)
+ Wear loose, dark clothes (including underwear) and try to avoid wearing any nylon or Lycra
+ If it is raining, make sure your clothing covers your whole body and bring an umbrella!

+ Your tan will be set after 4 hours, but for a deeper color, we do recommend waiting 6-8 hours (or even overnight) before showering, taking a bath or exercising
+ Feel free to rinse off after 4 hours, but do not use soap, shampoo, body wash etc. or shave – water only!
+ Avoid wearing fitted clothing for 4 hours (this includes socks and fitted shoes)
+ Avoid using deodorant, perfume, soap and lotion for 12 hours
+ Avoid shaving for at least 12 hours
+ During your first shower after a spray tan, you will notice some of the bronzer rinsing off – not to worry, this is normal!

+ Use an oil-free lotion twice daily to lock in the color and keep your skin hydrated
+ Pat your skin dry instead of rubbing as it may rub off your tan
+ Avoid chlorine and salt water as it will fade your tan faster
+ Use a fresh razor when shaving as a dull blade will remove your tan
+ Avoid Dove products as they shorten the life of a spray tan
+ Avoid aerosol or oil-based sunscreen and look for waterproof lotion sunscreen instead


How long will my tan last?
If you follow our pre and post spray tan tips, your tan should last 7-9 days.

Is airbrush tanning ok if I'm pregnant or nursing?
We ask that all pregnant and nursing clients consult with your doctor prior to scheduling.

I have had medical issues in the past. Can I still come in?
If you have any issues with allergies, past skincare reactions or a history of fainting or dizziness, please advise your tanning technician prior to the tanning session.

How long does a session take?
15-20 minutes.

Can I exercise after my tan?
We recommend waiting at least 4 hours before exercising, and make sure to rinse off the bronzer before. Keep in mind that excessive sweating will fade your tan faster.

I'm getting married. Should I book a trial run?
Yes! For bridal clients or first timers, we recommend doing a trial run to become comfortable with the process and results.

When should I schedule an appointment before my event?
We suggest tanning two days prior to your event.

How do I make an appointment?
Scheduling is fastest online but you can also call the salon to schedule.

What do I wear during the tan?
Disposable undergarments will be provided to you. Typically women go bare on top and wear only bottoms. Male clients must wear bottoms - no exceptions.
