As you can see from the gorgeous Jordan Lace pictured below it doesnt matter your skin color spray tans work on all skin tones.

From the fairest skin to the darkest skin a spray tan can make your skin appear smoother and glow.

How does Spray Tanning Work?
There are 2 most common ways. One is what they call an automatic booth, you are first given instructions and then you walk into the room and are left alone. Second most common way is done with a hand held gun. You get to choose whether you feel more comfortable in a swimsuit or nude. The process can take anywhere from 20 minutes to a 1/2 an hour.

What to look for in a great spray tan?
Not all spray tan technicians are equal there is an art to getting a spray tan, it has be done correctly and evenly. There should not be spots, or uneven streaks.  Get recommendations from friends and even look on Yelp to find a great technician in your area.

After Tan Process
You will normally have to stand infront of a fan to let the spray tan dry for about 20 minutes. Dress loosely because the spray tan will get on clothes. Make sure to shower prior to bed because it can also stain sheets if it a bronzing solution and not clear, however give yourself about 5 hours between spray tan and showering to let spray tan set.

Spray tans will appear different on everyones skin due to the pigment in your skin. Don’t be scared if the water in the shower turns orange, it’s a normal process, some of the tan will bleed.

How long will it last?
5-10 days depending on your skin.
