No. One very important rule to remember is that you NEVER want to layer or “build” a spray tan. The idea is similar to that of chipped nail polish. You would never paint over chipped nail polish and get a smooth, even coat, right? Same is true with Air-Tanning. You want to be sure to completely exfoliate all of your old tan off before getting sprayed again. If you don’t, you will more than likely turn out uneven and/or orange! One of the great aspects of an Air-Tan is that all you need is one 15-minute session to get as little or as much color as you need.
Do I have to take my makeup off?
No, the spray tan will go through your makeup and still tan your face. One thing to keep in mind is that if you have an appointment later in the day, you won’t be able to wash it off before you go bed since you have to wait eight hours before getting wet. You can put on makeup afterwards if you just stick to powders and avoid any liquid or cream makeup.
What happens if this gets in my hair?
The solution is water soluble, so it will just wash out with your first shower. We do provide a hair net for you to wear during your Air-Tan session, so the amount that gets in your hair is very minimal. My hair has been super duper blonde for over a year and even with spending the majority of my days in the spray room, my hair is still blonde as ever–even if I wait a couple days to wash it!
