Top 10 Reasons People Get Gorgeous Spray Tans

Avid spray tanners will tell you that they don’t need a specific reason to schedule an appointment with their favorite spray tan business to get the sun-kissed skin they love. However, people who haven’t tried spray tanning lately might have a negative past perception of our industry, namely the unnatural, orange-hued look. These people might need a reason or a friend that is a regular client to drive them to give spray tanning a try, but we’re confident they’ll be hooked by the instant and gorgeous results achieved with today’s sunless tanning solutions and techniques.

Here are the top ten reasons people try spray tanning for the first time!


This is one of the greatest drivers of customers to the spray tan salon year-round. Women (and men) particularly in bridal parties want to look their best during their friend’s special day. Spray tanning is a quick way to highlight their natural skin tone in their breathtaking dresses.


Whether they are shooting photos for the aforementioned wedding, a prom, family photos, or just snapping the perfect selfie, flawlessly tanned skin gives people confidence that they look their best. Certified spray tanning technicians select the perfect formula for each individual’s skin tone, ensuring that they photograph captures them in the perfect light.


The possibility of finding that special someone often brings new clients in before their first dates, because selecting the perfect outfit isn’t the only thing to worry about. Sunless tanning can help spray away the pre-date jitters, giving people the confidence in their appearance to make a great first impression.

4.Homecoming, Proms, Graduation, Reunions, or other School-Related Events

School events provide the perfect opportunity to bring people in for their first spray tan. A great spray tan is the best complement to ornate gowns and elaborate hairstyles, because of the subtle way it helps to tie a formal outfit together. Typically milestones within peoples’ lives, there will also be plenty of photographs to commemorate these special occasions. Looking their best will allow people to remember these milestones more fondly.


Probably one of the best and most convincing reasons for people to give spray-tanning a try, sunless tanning is 100% UV-free. People who love going to tanning beds or laying outside to get the perfect sun-kissed glow (pretty much everyone) are now able to do so without the health risks associated with UV exposure. Dihydroxyacetone (DHA) and erythrulose work with amino acids in the skin to produce the perfect look, without the worry of cancer.

6.Body Building

One of the less conventional reasons that leads people to get their first spray tan is the sport of body building. The color that an expertly applied spray tan provides to the muscles, perfectly accentuates the hard work that these athletes put in to sculpting their bodies. Even if you’re not a body builder, spray tans can help to enhance muscle definition and give you the toned look you’re after. That’s why it’s used by competitors in sports such as dancing, cheerleading, and ice skating too!

7.Vacations/Beach Season

Most everyone can relate to a desire to look your best for your next vacation, particularly at the beach. That explains why so many people work out, diet and spray tan before they go on vacation. Spray tanning allows people to avoid dangerous UV exposure while still looking fabulous in their swimwear.

8.Even out tan lines

If you have ever tanned in the past, whether in the sun or in a tanning bed, then you know the uneven skin tones that these methods can cause. Spray tanning can help you to even out your tan by perfectly matching your current color all over your entire body. It can also help you to avoid these problems to begin with by simply starting off with the perfect, even tan. With spray tanning, uneven tone and unsightly tan lines are a thing of the past!

9.Fully Customizable

Another one of the most desirable benefits of spray tanning is the ability to completely customize each solution to achieve each individual’s ideal skin tone. Whether someone prefers a rich and dark look or just wants a slightly more olive tone, a professional spray tan artist will be able to select the perfect product to realize the look. The entire process takes less than an hour, allowing you to get back to your busy life with the your perfect tan.

10.Skin Won’t Tan Naturally

We often hear clients whose skin is naturally fair complain that they’re unable to tan because they turn red in the sun. Today’s advanced spray tan solutions allow these people to achieve a darker, yet natural hue to their skin. The results continuously bring in fair-skinned customers, whose only tanning option is sunless.

Whatever their reasons for trying spray tanning, we guarantee that people who try it will love it! Whether they enjoy the customization aspect, the speed, or the health benefits, looking great all year long with minimum effort is why the industry has recently exploded.
