The Truth About Tanning Booths

True Custom Tanning 

When it comes to getting the perfect tan there are often questions about going to a salon who does custom airbrush tans and going to a salon with a tanning booth. There are so many articles on why people should fake their tan instead of using a tanning bed but very little information on the differences of fake tanning methods. In this post I want to go over some of the differences between getting a spray tan artist to give you the glow you’re looking for and going for a tan in a booth.

Booths and Body Types

When you go in to a salon and ask for a spray tan most often you’ll be tanning in a booth. A booth works similar to an assembly line painting vehicles. The tanning solution moves in the same was for everyone no matter their shape or size. Booths are built to do the same thing continuously so that tanning salons can serve more clients at a low price. When looking for customization the only thing you can control with a booth is what solution you use.

Airbrush Your Glow 

If you’re new to the spray tanning life or you’re getting a glow for a big event a booth may not be the best option for you. Custom airbrush tans have more elements you can control, you can control everything from the solution you use, the angle the solution is sprayed at and even where you get your tan. Airbrush tanning solutions involve an artist that can provide you with a consultation to what will work best for you and some businesses will even come to you to preform the service.

Choosing the Best Solution for You

On average a spray tan takes about 15-20 minutes to complete, not including set up or clean up. If you’re someone who is looking for an inexpensive way to tan without using a tanning bed a booth might work for you. However, if you have a big event or you want to look your best for someone special a custom airbrush tan might be a better solution for you. Airbrush tans with an artist can be customized for your body type, skin tone, and skin needs. No matter what choice you make the number one tip is to always test what method you want to use before any big events such as a wedding.
