Hey you all, hope you are enjoying your summer vacation, staying safe from the sun and looking radiant!
As the weather is becoming hot and humid each passing day of summer, we are receiving quite a few emails about what airbrush technicians can do to make their clients feel comfortable after spray tanning and achieving a gorgeous even tan.
Make sure you work in well air condition room and if needed keep fan circulating air as well.
When clients walk in, look at their skin. Use a pre-tan prep spray to ensure that the oils and stickiness from the perspiration is being wiped off resulting in a smooth clean skin surface ready for spray tan.
If clients says they shower before arriving for a appointment you should still prep them with pre-tan spray and make them understand why it is necessary – because if skin is left sticky or wet and sweaty the solution would not adhere to the skin effectively.
Once you finish spraying your client make sure that the fan is facing them and give them time to completely dry. Once they feel dry I would recommend a light dusting of smooth talc free powder to neck, arm creases, under breast and the back of knees. Any place you see a skin overlapping it is a good to lightly dust some powder to keep solution from rubbing off. If you find a bronzing powder it is even better. Ask your solution supplier who can help with that.
Ask client to get dressed in loose fitting clothing and give them time to sit and relax for at least 20 to 30 minutes after they get dressed. Offer magazines or soft drinks before they walk out of the door as this will give enough time for solution to set in and client will have no more tacky or sticky feeling that they will want to wash off as soon as they get home due to humidity.
I hope that this helps to make your client feel wonderful and they will appreciate your attention to customer service in their hearts.
Keep smiling and enjoying sunless tanning, a good combination for a radiant look!
