Airbrush Tan FAQs

Not sure what to expect? Let us walk you through some of our new clients’ most common questions.

What Makes Glamour Girl Different From Other Spray Tans?

Glamour Girl Airbrush Tan uses state-of-the-art equipment and certified airbrush technicians to give you the ultimate glow experience. Our industry-leading solutions leave you with a natural-looking, beautiful, streak-free, and orange-free spray tan.  You can achieve a flawless golden glow, a beautiful bronzed, deep dark brown...and everything in between.

How Long Will My Spray Tan Last?

The tans last an average of 7 to 10 days. The longevity of your tan varies based on your skin type, level of fitness, daily activity, and how well you maintain your spray. Like a suntan, a sunless tan fades gradually as your skin cells shed. To help maintain your tan, apply lotion twice daily. Want an indefinite glow? Regularly scheduled follow-up tans will get you there. 

What Should I Wear?

We recommend you wear dark, loose-fitting clothing as some color-transferring is normal. DHA (the ingredient responsible for that bronzed glow we love) can react with nylon, silk, and wool. For best results, you’ll want to skip wearing those fabrics on tan day.

Are Spray Tans Safe?

Yes.  Sunless tanning is a safe and proven method for obtaining a tan.  The active ingredient, DHA, is derived from sugar beets and is FDA approved for sunless tanning.  As with any personal product, sensitivity can occur but is very rare.

How Long Does an Airbrush Session Take?

Your whole appointment will take about 20 minutes. You’ll be put into your service room and given time to undress down to your comfort level (see the “What to Wear” information below for details). When you’re ready, we’ll come back into the room, mix your customized color and get started. Your airbrush tan application will take approximately 7 to 10 (10?) minutes. Once we’re done, we’ll step out of the room and give you a few minutes to dry and get dressed and then you’ll be on your way. 


What should I wear?

Our female clients are allowed to wear (or not wear) whatever they want - this is up to your discretion and comfort level. If you choose to wear a bathing suit or undergarments, just remember that where they sit on your skin will become your tan lines so choose wisely and take into account any upcoming vacations or events requiring specific attire (did anyone say “off-the-shoulder bridesmaids dress”?). We recommend dark colored garments for anything that you do choose to wear.


Our male clients are required to wear undergarments. Disposable undergarments will not be provided so please come prepared or you will be asked to reschedule your appointment.


Will an Airbrush Tan Protect Me From the Sun?

No, an airbrush spray tan does not protect you from the sun.  It is recommended that you use sunscreen when out in the sun.

How Are You Managing COVID-19 Precautions?

Your safety is our top priority. We’re following local safety guidelines to ensure you have a safe tanning experience. Expect to see us masked-up when you come in and we (and our building) ask that you do the same. Our service rooms and main space are equipped with HEPA H13 Grade Air Filters for extra air filtration and we’re taking everyones temperature upon entering. If you or anyone that you live or work closely with currently have tested positive for or are experiencing symptoms of COVID-19, please reschedule your appointment. You will never be charged or penalized for last minute cancellations due to a COVID-19 concern. Have more questions about how we’re managing COVD-19 safety measures through tanning services? Give us a call.
