Learning to spray tan can be great way to earn extra income, ad on to an existing business or create a full-time profitable business. The earning potential for a Professional Spray Tan Artist can range between $200 to $2000 a week or more.
How does one become a seasoned spray tan artist? Well, it's not as easy as picking up equipment and solution and then waiving the gun in front of a client and pulling the panty down to reveal the tan-line. Becoming a seasoned and sought after spray tan artist takes time, a little bit of money ($3K), good technique, excellent business practices and customer service.
How does one learn this? This was the problem I was having when I first started. First of all learning how to spray tan off the internet or watching a youtube video is doable but not the best if you want to go pro. You need a mentor, someone skilled who can show you the best poses, distance, timing and best business practices.
As far as technique it's not as easy just spraying haphazardly around a client. You need to know the lines of the body, bone structure, problem areas, skin type and so much more to give your clients a flawless glow that is streak & splotch free, non-drippy or runny.
Now let's talk tools of the trade! Yes tools. Just like a craftsman, make-up-artist, fashion designer, etc... Spray tan artists have very specific tools to use! Our gun and machine and the products we use, are our tools of the trade. Inferior tools and products... well inferior spray tans.
Let's face it people!!! You can't create a masterpiece with plastic equipment and guns and cheap solutions. You need a good plug-and-play system with stainless steel parts, made in the USA that have consistent spray patters and machines that don't over-heat and fluctuate in airflow speed. That is why I love our plug and play system. It's so accurate, creates very low overspray (this means less solutions in the air) saving you money and clients that dry instantly and don't leave their appointment drippy, sticky or wet after they tan with you. I created our solutions to be clean non-toxic, to look and feel like a real tan and fade evenly with-out drying or cracking of the skin.
Best business practices range from business to business. For me, I believe in 100% tan satisfaction, offering products that are "Healthy" for you as the technician and for your clients (Plant Powered & Organic) and educating clients on the proper pre and post tanning care for their skin as well as offering follow up texts and calls. Also because my technique is precise and equipment is professional grade, my work environment is always, well ventilated, clean, pretty and inviting.
