Start your own spray tanning business with Sunjunkie

Spray tanning is officially one of the most profitable beauty treatments available within the UK with therapists on average charging £15 – £20 for just 15 minutes work. Spray tanning is a huge market with over 6 million spray tans taking place every year, the UK spray tanning industry alone is valued at £80 – £120 million. For new therapists looking to start up their own spray tanning business and tap into that huge UK spray tanning market, standing out from your competition is more important than ever!

When it comes to starting your business, clients will pay more money for better quality products and higher level of service. If the products you are using do not produce the results your client wants, the chances are that client will be very reluctant to use your services again or even pay you for the service they have just received. In the competitive beauty industry it is very important to use products that have a good reputation and produce great results for your clients. By ensuring the products you use are of a high standard, clients will be willing to spend more money with you but more importantly will want to use your services again rather than go to one of your competitors.

How to prepare you skin for a spray tan

Everyone loves having a tan, whether it’s a natural sun-kissed glow, a beautiful fake tan or spray tan. Fake tan offers a lot more than just having a tan, it can improve your complexion, signs of ageing, skin blemishes and overall confidence. The preparation process of a spray tan is one of the most important aspects of applying a tan and can have a massive effect on how your tan develops. If you prepare the skin correctly the results will be instantly noticeable, neglect to prepare the skin and this will have a huge effect on not just how the tan will develop but also how long it will last.

There are a number of things that can alter the way fake tan develops on the skin the most common issues are:

  • Moisturizers left on the skin
  • Old Make Up
  • Perfumes
  • Oil based lotions such as shower gels
  • Oily skin
  • Old fake tan left on the skin

In order to create the perfect fake tan you must have the perfect base to apply it onto. Imagine trying to paint a picture onto a canvas that already has paint on it? It’s exactly the same when it comes to your skin, you skin needs to provide a neutral and plain base in order for the fake tan to naturally develop the way it should do. Anything that is left on the skin mentioned in the above list will alter the way your fake tan will develop and will drastically alter the results. Fake tan works by penetrating the skin with its natural tanning and moisturizing agents, if something is preventing the natural ingredients penetrating the skin then the fake tan will struggle to develop and give a deep tan which can sometimes cause a streaky effect.

How to prepare the skin before every fake tan application?

The perfect base for tanning is pH balanced skin, in order to achieve this  you need to strip all products off your skin and out of your pores. Sunjunkie have developed the only product that is proven to pH balance the skin and remove all old moisturizers, perfumes, make up and old fake tan from your skin and pores creating the perfect base for tanning.

Our fake tan exfoliating wipes have both a soft and rough side, the rough side is designed to give your skin a light exfoliation and remove all old beauty products from your skin. The soft side is designed to naturally pH balance your skin creating the perfect base for a spray or fake tan application.

The Spray Tanning Season Is Here

Summer Spray Tan Solutions

Summer is just around the corner which means spray tan season is practically here. You would think that in the summer months, people will tend to be more naturally tanned due to spending more time outside in the hot summer sun. Although that is true, people also tend to wear less clothing and show off more skin which is why the need for Sunjunkie spray tan solutions is higher than ever.

With people tending to favour a safe tanning alternative such as fake tan as opposed to sunbathing in potentially harmful rays (although who doesnt love sunbathing on a beach!) the summer beginning of summer really does signal the start of the spray tanning season.

The summer of 2015 kick started a change in how people used fake tan and spray tan solutions with many people now favouring a lighter more natural looking tan. In recent years spray tanning solutions were used to achieve the darkest possible look and garnered quite a bad reputation for creating unnatural results. Sales of lower percentages and lighter shades of fake tan and solutions are on the rise which is why you should ensure you are fully stocked up for when the season hits.

Our recommendations for Summer 2016

Sunjunkie offer a wide range of spray tanning solutions that are available for every skin type, in every shade and percentage available. Each of our collections offer different results and colours from a natural sunkissed glow to a deliciously dark olive complexion. As a professional spray tan therapist it is important that you are able to provide a service for different skin types. By ensuring that you have stocked up on a wide range of solutions of different shades and percentages this will enable you to provide an almost bespoke and personal service to your client.

Here are our top recommendations for your clients in 2016

Sunjunkie 8% Supreme spray tanning solution – Taken from our best selling collection our 8% supreme will guarantee a light olive complexion for your clients that love the olive look. Our supreme solution is also available in strengths ranging from 6% – 14% however with most clients now favouring a light/medium complexion we think our 8% is the perfect choice!

Crystal Clear Spray tan Solution – This unique solution was a worlds first in the spray tanning industry. Appears as a clear water like solution that develops exactly the same as all Sunjunkie tans.

With weddings most popular in the spring and summer months the Sunjunkie wedding solution is definitely recommended

Spray Tan Solution for Sensitive Skin Types

When you have sensitive skin, looking for a new skin cream or beauty product can be a very daunting task. Not knowing how your skin is going to react to a certain type of ingredient is a risk in itself. It’s happened to everyone, you purchase a new moisturizer, toner or a new foundation and it just doesn’t take kindly to your skin. In some cases it can irritate your skin or maybe even cause a breakout, the list is endless.

When this happens the sensible thing to do is simply wash the new product off with warm water or discontinue use immediately. There are a number of different ingredients within different skin care products that are known to have a harsh effect on the skin.

  • Alcohol – Proven to have a harsh drying effect on the skin, sucking out all the moisture that is naturally stored. Dryness is one of the major causes for premature ageing.
  • Parabens – A preservative used by many high street beauty products to extent the shelf life of a product. Think of this as a food additive to help extend the sell by date. Some parabens have been proven to damage the skin and can cause some health issues.

Extra care should be taken when choosing a spray tan solution to use on your clients and even yourself. When your skin does not agree with a new beauty product such as a moisturizer it is easy enough to just simply discontinue use and wash the product off, however, it’s not so simple when it comes to a tanning product.

Spray tan solutions penetrate deep into the skin in order to have a lasting effect of up to 7 days. Unlike a moisturizer or foundation, simply washing with warm water will not remove the solution from your skin. In fact, there is not really anything that exists that can 100% remove spray tan solution or fake tan from your skin after it has been applied. Exfoliating your skin can help to speed up the natural process in which spray tanning solution will wear off the skin, usually 5-7 days after application.

There are steps you can take in order prevent having a reaction to a spray tanning solution:

  • Choose a solution that is Alcohol free – All Sunjunkie spray tanning solutions are alcohol free and are blended with Moisture Lock Technology ensuring that your skin is perfectly hydrated.
  • Make sure the solution is Paraben Free – Sunjunkie do not add any preservatives into their solution, we believe in keeping our solution fresh and as natural as possible.
  • Check out before and after photos and online reviews – Nothing speaks the truth like online reviews from people like yourself, listen to how they found the product, the experience and their recommendations! Check out our Sunjunkie before and after photos – Tanspiration
  • Check the price of the Spray Tan Solution – Everyone loves a bargain, but if the product is seriously cheap you need to ask why? What key ingredients are being left out, or what cheap ingredients are being added in?

Spray Tanning Machines

Great spray tanning machines can be the difference from a streaky finish to the perfect result! A gun that produces a super fine mist to evenly coat your clients skin is every spray tan professional’s dream. Like the old saying goes “A bad workman blames his tools”… In some cases this statement is absolutely true! However when it comes to spray tanning it’s not so accurate.

A bad spray tan machine can leave an uneven and streaky finish on your clients and will tend to use more spray tan solution than what is necessary. With the increase of more spray tanning solution being used on a single client your profits will drop as a result. Tests conducted by Sunjunkie found that the average amount of solution used to complete a full body spray tan with a Sunjunkie spray tanning machine was 50ml compared to 70ml when using a spray tan machine from a different brand…. Thats a whole 20ml wastage on spray tan solution!

Many spray tan machines come with a fixed speed setting which can contribute to the amount of solution being wasted. Sunjunkie spray tan machines come with a 3 speed setting to control and adjust the speed of the solution sprayed out of the spray gun preventing spray tan solution wastage.

Sunjunkie spray tanning machines can produce an unlimited amount of spray tans on a daily basis and are one of the only machines capable of performing back to back spray tans. Other models when tested have been shown to overheat and in some cases completely cut out.

Sunjunkie spray tan machines are available in a number of different models and include everything you could possibly need to start offering a spray tan service.

Spray Tanning season is just around the corner!

Spray tanning season tends to really kick off in the month of March with fast approaching public holidays such as Easter and school half terms, with many Brits jetting off on a lovely European beach holiday. Holiday season seems to kick start a sudden surge in spray tans provided by both Mobile and Professional spray tan therapists for those who want to be beach ready when stripping down to their bikini on a hot Spanish beach.

***sighs off jealousy***

For professional spray tan therapists it’s important to hit the ground running and ensure that you are fully stocked up on all spray tan solutions but more importantly, ensure that your spray tan machine is in FULL working order. When stocking up on all spray tanning solutions have a look at your most popular solution that was used in the busy periods the year before so you are not caught short on stock levels. Trust me there is nothing worse than having to turn away business due to not having a particular percentage, solution or item in stock.

If you have not used your spray tanning machine over the quieter winter months, give it a full check and a trial run to ensure that the machine is running as usual. Alternatively Sunjunkie are offering a full MOT on all spray tan kits for just £20. The full service will include testing, cleaning, spray gun and spray pattern tuning to ensure that you can provide the best possible service to your clients. We will also carry out any additional repair work although this may come at an additional cost.

Sunjunkie have a huge collection of spray tan solutions ranging in just about every percentage possible available accross all of our bestselling and unique colours.  Sunjunkie Supreme Olive Look Solution | Sunjunkie Duo Natural Solution | Sunjunkie Original Sunkissed Solution
