One of the most common questions that I receive from my clients is, “How far in advance should I schedule my spray tan?” There really is no right or wrong answer. It generally depends on the occasion and/or shade the client is trying to achieve. The day before an event is perfect for a deeper color. For a more subtle shade, 2-3 days before the event is usually when I recommend scheduling your spray tan.
A trial tan, if time allows, will help the client with their color expectations. This will allow the client to see the shade of their tan. Trial tans should be scheduled at least two weeks prior to their main appointment to allow time for fading between tans. It is recommended to keep a record of the color used during the trial in order for any adjustments to be made at their next appointment. Trial tans can give peace of mind to anyone who is unsure of how they will look with a spray tan.
