Quick menu:

What is spray tanning?
Spray tanning is an application of a sunless solution using active chemical dihydroxyacetone, also known as DHA. DHA is found in all spray tan solutions, lotions and sun creams. The glycerin-derived chemical interacts with amino acids of dead skin cells to produce the darker pigmentation that we associate with sun tans. As dead skin cells are constantly shed, the tan becomes lighter over time before a repeat tan is needed should the client wish to maintain their tanned visage.

How is spray tan applied?
The spray tan solution is applied to the skin using a spray gun which produces a mist, giving your skin an even-looking “sun tan” almost instantly.

Spray tanning is a safer method of tanning your skin over sunbeds and sunbathing as the UV rays can be harmful to your skin. It is also a much preferred method over shop-bought, self-applicating tanning lotions and wipes which can often result in streakiness and a mahogany appearance if the applicator is inexperienced. A spray tan, on the other hand, will give a consistent, overall tan that will look more akin to the tan produced by a spell in the sun which is why more and more customers are opting for a spray tan.

Our 1 day accredited spray tanning course will allow you to get your foot in the door of this increasingly popular beauty treatment service and requires no previous knowledge or experience. So why not enrol and add an extra service for your beauty salon or clinic.

Why do clients prefer spray tanning?
Since the rise of modern day testing, medical awareness and beauty technology, it’s becoming more and more apparent that women and men are preferring to achieve their desired tanned complexion using spray tanning services instead of using sunbeds due to the harsh effects to their skin and health risks they can cause.

Clients will choose to have a spray tan on the basis of convenience and trust. A beautician who can perfect a flawless, natural-looking tan on the client will find their services high in demand with repeat customers. Although Spray Tanning is no longer a secret, some clients still prefer to keep it a beauty secret. In order to deliver a convincing spray tan, kickstart your training today with Chic Beauty Academy.

For a business and your clients, Spray tanning is a cost effective treatment to offer which often results in repeat custom should the tan be applied correctly. The returns of offering spray tans are fantastic – you can charge as little as £10 and up to £25 a treatment.
