No, you are fine to start getting dressed right after your tan even though you feel a little sticky. I always recommend putting on your pants first since we tan your legs first – they won’t feel quite as wet. The reason why you feel a little sticky is because of the aloe and moisturizers in our solution. The part that gives you a long-lasting tan (called DHA) gets absorbed right away and is dried by the air coming out of our airbrush guns. If you do notice any smudging when you are getting dressed, that is just the instant bronzers, which washes off anyway during your first shower. The only ways to mess up your tan right after are if you get wet or rub your skin really hard.
Is it weird to see people naked? Are you really ok if I go topless?
Actually, no, it’s not weird. I’ve gotten this question countless times from both clients and friends. After the first week of training, it becomes very normal. I honestly don’t even think twice about walking into the spray room and seeing a semi-nude person. Just another day on the job! We do require everyone to wear bottoms, but most women do go topless. If you are feeling uncertain, just know that we’ve seen every kind of body out there. We know it can be uncomfortable the first time, but we are professionals and will make you feel as comfortable as possible. If you do decide to wear a top, keep in mind any tan lines it will leave behind. It’s best to wear something strapless and dark colored.
