The Golden Glow: Preparing for the Perfect Homecoming Airbrush Tan

Updated: Oct 6, 2023

How long before homecoming should I do my airbrush tan?

  • We recommend doing your airbrush tan 1-2 days prior to your event.

How do I prepare for my airbrush tan?

  • Your tan is always the last step; make sure you get your nails done beforehand!

  • Shower, shave, and exfoliate your skin the day of your appointment, or one day before. We recommend using an exfoliating mitt with a foaming body cleanser.

  • Do not use an oil-based sugar/salt scrub or a creamy body wash because they can leave a residue on your skin that may prevent the airbrush tanning solution from being absorbed evenly.

  • We prefer if you do not apply any body lotion before your Airbrush tanning appointment. However, If your skin is extremely dry, you can apply a very light moisturizer one hour or more before your appointment.

  • If you are planning on waxing, it is ideal to do that one day or more before your appointment. You do not want to wax after your airbrush tan because the wax will remove your tan.

What do I wear during my airbrush tanning session?

  • While you are getting your airbrush tan, you can wear whatever you are comfortable with. Most women choose to wear panties, bra & panties, or a swimsuit. The solutions that we use do have an instant bronzer that can rub off on clothing. Although it will wash out of most fabrics, it is best to wear dark garments.

What do I wear after my airbrush tan session?

  • You should wear loose fitting, darker clothing when you leave your appointment. The best thing to wear is loose sweatpants, a loose cotton top, and flip flops. Do not wear silk or wool clothes because it may stain these fabrics. If it is raining the day of your appointment, make sure you are covered up! You should definitely wear long sleeves, long pants, a hoodie and bring an umbrella!

Will an airbrush tan ruin my mani/pedi?

  • No! After we tan you, we will take a baby wipe and wipe the solution off of your nails.

Airbrush tans offer a safe, convenient, and customizable way to achieve a beautiful bronzed complexion without the risks associated with UV exposure. Whether you're preparing for a special event, want to maintain a year-round tan, or simply prefer a healthier alternative to sunbathing, airbrush tans are an excellent option to consider. So, next time you're longing for that golden glow, book an appointment for a radiant and sun-kissed look that's both safe and stunning.
