What Do I Wear During and After My Spray Tan

This is another popular one I get asked a lot. What do I wear when I get sprayed and what do I wear after I get sprayed.

What to wear during your spray tan:

When you get your spray tan, you WILL get solution on whatever you are wearing in the booth. When I spray, I try not to go over the clothes and just mainly stick to the skin. But sometimes, the solution does get on the clothes. Most of it does wash out. I’ve had clothes covered in solution before and I never had any solution stain the clothing. What I recommend doing is going in with something that is older and if you get sprayed a lot, you don’t mind some solution getting on it. As far as how much clothing you should wear for your appointment, that is totally up to the client. I have a lot of clients go topless and just wear bottoms. I also have a lot who want to wear a top. If you do wear a top, I always make sure it’s low enough or covering the right parts of the skin, so you don’t show tan lines in whatever you are wearing. If you want to wear straps on your top during your session, go right ahead! We want to make sure the client feels comfortable, and would never make them take off clothes they do not want too.

What to wear after your spray tanning session:

SIMPLE…..dark, loose fitting clothes! Emphasis on LOOSE FITTING!! The reason I say dark, is because if you plan on going out after your spray tan or wear a light color, you will see some of the bronzer rub off onto the clothes. Again, it washes out! You want to make sure whatever you are putting on does not hug the skin too tight. If your clothes are too tight, it can rub the tan right off. It’s best to wear loose sweat pants and a loose t-shirt or sweatshirt. Absolutely NO jeans, socks, or leggings. Wait until after your first initial shower to wear these. Ladies, I also recommend to keep your bra straps down after your session. If you keep them up, you will cause tan lines on the shoulders.

Most clients like to get their spray tans at night, so when they are done, they dry a little and hop right into bed. Just to play it safe, I always have my “Spray tanning sheets” on the bed for the night of my tan. The sheets are dark so if I do get any solution on them, it won’t be noticeable and you can wash it right out. I like to wear sweat pants and a long t-shirt to bed. You want to make sure you don’t wear something to heavy that will cause you to sweat. Sweating after a spray tan is not good!!

I hope I was able to answer any questions about what to wear during and after your spray tanning session. Just remember, loose fitting for after and whatever you feel comfortable wearing during your spray tan.
