So you've made the decision to get tanned and beautiful and you're shopping around for a tan salon you're gonna love. Don't know where to start? Here's a few tips you can follow to find a place where you feel safe, at ease, and happy to spend your dough.
Tip 1. Ask Around
The best way to find a tan salon you're really going to love is to ask friends whose tans you've been admiring. Different salons have different ideas about what kinds of tans look best. You don't want to go anywhere that lets a client walk out with an orange spray tan. If you like the results, chances are that the salon knows what it's doing and can help get you started on the right foot. On the reverse had, you may ask someone whose tan you absolutely hate which salon they use. This will help you get an idea of where to steer clear from.
Also take the time to notice the tan of the customer service people who help you out. If you don't like their look, chances are that their recommendations on anything you inquire about won't be very helpful.
Tip 2. Cleanliness
Another good way to figure out which tan salon you would like to make your permanent 'honey-skin hub' is to make a visit and try one session. Look out for aspects like cleanliness inside tanning booths and on supplies. If you spot smeared tanning lotion from a previous customer, chances are that the salon isn't big on keeping things clean.
Tip 3. Professionalism
Before you make your decision, it's a good idea to assess the skill level of the technicians who service the salon. A good way to do this is to ask about one of the more difficult services that tan salons offer- airbrushing. Less experienced technicians will ask you to wear a blocking lotion on your hands and feet in order to prevent any color run off. You can ask if they require this lotion in order to get a good idea of the service level you will be getting.
Also ask if they require you to wear goggles and nose plugs when getting a regular spray tan. Manufacturers recommend these safety precautions to prevent DHA from getting inside your body. Salons that do not require this precaution may not be as forthcoming with the safety aspects of tanning as you may like.
At the end of the day, newcomers to tanning have to be able to trust the word of their service providers in order to have a safe tanning experience. With a little research and effort, you can find a salon that you can build a relationship with for many beautiful, golden-tanned years to come.
