Make sure you're comfortable while you get your tan
Whether you want to wear a bathing suit or are a woman who is comfortable naked, anything goes as long you’re happy with your choice. Men, you'll have to at least cover up your manhood out of respect for our artists. The salon will provide disposable underwear and accessories for your use. So it really comes down to what makes you comfortable, so please ask your technician for any of the extras if you'd like them and they'll be happy to get them for you.
Spray tan artists are used to seeing naked skin but that doesn't mean you have to go naked. If you're more comfortable wearing a bikini or disposable undergarments that's perfectly fine. Don't do anything that you don't want to.
If you wear clothes they're going to tan too
If you do wear clothes to get a spray tan understand that any type of clothing that you wear during your airbrush session is going to get sprayed just like your skin, and it’s going to give you tan lines. Fabric blocks the solution, so you'll see tan lines around the edges of any clothing you wear. So if you're going to wear clothing when you get your tan think ahead and try to match your tan lines to the bathing suit you plan on wearing when you go into your session.
And as always with any clothing that's going to come into contact with your tanning solution, wear black or another dark color to protect your clothes from the rare event of staining.
If tanning your whole body is what you want to do but are nervous about getting naked in front of a stranger, ask to meet the woman who's going to give you your tan ahead of time. Taking a few minutes to introduce yourself and chat about the process before you start can be a great way to alleviate your worries. Remember that your spray tanning artists are professionals. They love what they do and want to make you feel as relaxed and happy as they possibly can throughout your session.
What to wear after getting your tan
One of the most important tanning tips is to wear dark, loose fitting clothing to help avoid any staining to your clothes from the bronzer element from the solution. While your spray tan will dry quickly, it’s going to take a couple of hours and during that time as you're sitting or moving around your clothing can pick up a little bit of the color. This will normally wash right out when you wash your clothes but it's why professionals recommend to wear dark, loose fitting clothes that you don't mind getting a little dirty. It's best to avoid light colors and tight fabrics until your next shower.
