Spray tanning is a popular alternative to sunbeds and sunbathing and comes without any of the risks associated with these tanning methods. Spray guns, cubicles and pop-up tents make spray tanning a treatment accessible to all therapists whether home, mobile or salon-based. There are a lot of options available to spray tanners. You could offer tanning parties, face or leg tans and contouring, catering to all types of clients. Spray tanning is also a year-round treatment, popular in summer for those who haven’t been abroad on holiday but also in winter for Christmas parties and other special occasions.
