Should I Get a Spray Tan Before My Wedding?

So… you’re engaged (congrats!!) and you’re planning every last detail of the most important day of your life. You’ve found the dress, booked your glam squad, but you’re still seeking a way to achieve a sun-kissed glow. Only one thing seems to be holding you back: you’re scared. You’re scared of turning orange, looking too dark, or not looking like yourself. So, the question remains… should you get a spray tan before your big day? As expert spray tanning technicians at Bronze Beauty Spray Tanning, we’re here to tell you YES! And these are the reasons why:

 

Your Color Will Be Customized

At Bronze Beauty Spray Tanning, all of our solutions are customized with different color bases! This ensures that your skin will end up looking as dark, or as light as you want it to be. With these bases we have the ability to pull more dark tones, red tones, or even olive tone! The possibilities are essentially endless. The point being, you don’t need to worry about being too dark or too light. If you communicate with us about what you want, we have the resources to give you exactly what you’re looking for!

 

You Won’t Turn Orange

As we said before, because all of our solutions have different bases (brown, violet, red, olive, etc.) we know what solutions work best with lighter or darker skin tones. We never go too dark on someone who might have naturally fairer skin, because we know that would look unnatural on them. We truly customize our solutions to make sure that what we use on you will look GOOD on you!

 

Bring Your Bridesmaids & Get a Discount

If you’ve never had a spray tan party, you haven’t lived! Bring all your bridesmaids with you to get a discount on your spray tan! Whether it’s just a trial, or the tan for the big day, there’s nothing like having that bff support system to back you up, especially if it’s your first time.

 

Book a Trial Before the Real Deal

If you’ve never had a spray tan before and you want to try it out, we always recommend to brides that they book a trial about 3-4 weeks before their wedding. Another good idea is to book the trial around the time of your last wedding dress fitting. It’s always good to see exactly what your skin tone will look like in the wedding dress itself, and see if you like it.

 

You’ll Have an Experienced Spray Tan Tech

At Bronze Beauty Spray Tanning, we truly pride ourselves in being the best spray tanning salon in Pittsburgh. We’ve been in business for a little over 6 years, but in that seemingly short amount of time, we have sprayed thousands of clients… many of which have been brides! We’re a preferred vendor on Pittsburgh’s famous bridal blog, Burgh Brides (https://burghbrides.com/vendor-guide/beauty/bronze-beauty-spray-tanning/), and have received countless raving reviews from brides throughout the years. We know we have what it takes to give you that natural looking glow you’ve always dreamed of on the most important day of your life!

 

So, there you have it! Give us a call or message us on any of our social media platforms, and we would love to talk with you more about scheduling a bridal trial! We look forward to hearing from you. Happy Tanning!

 

What to Expect During a Spray Tan Session

What to Expect During a Spray Tan Session:

So you’ve finally booked a spray tan… and you’re super excited. But there’s still something about the experience that makes you nervous because, frankly, you don’t know what to expect. Well have no fear! Here’s exactly what to expect the day of your spray tan:

 

Undress (To Your Comfort Level)

When you first get to our spray tanning studio, your spray tan tech will greet you and show you to the tanning booth. Here, they’ll let you undress to your comfort level. For women, some choose to go topless, wear a bathing suit, a strapless bra and panties, or go completely nude! Remember not worry about what your spray tan tech thinks… they’ve seen it all! As for men, they can wear underwear, swim trunks, or take advantage of the complementary disposable boxers we have in our studio!

 

Put On Sticky Feet & Hair Net

At Bronze Beauty Spray Tanning, we provide complementary sticky feet and hair nets, so you don’t have to worry about bringing your own. The sticky feet prevent the bottoms of your feet from getting solution on them while in the tanning booth. In addition, the hair net keeps your hair out of your face and off your body, as well as protects your hair from getting any spray tanning solution in it.

 

We Apply a pH Balance Spray to Your Skin

The pH balance spray is also complementary at Bronze Beauty Spray Tanning! It helps prepare your skin for the spray tan, and, in turn, helps your spray tan to last longer!

 

We Apply Barrier Cream to Your Hands, Knees, and Elbows

The barrier cream applied before the spray tanning session moisturizes those particularly dry parts of the body, such as the hands, knees and elbows. The driest parts of the body tend to soak up more of the solution, which can cause your tan to look darker in those areas. Adding a little bit of a barrier and moisture to these specific areas just before the session helps to even out your tan, and make it look the most natural!

 

Let the Spray Tanning Begin!

At Bronze Beauty Spray Tanning, we spray with an HPVL machine and spray gun. This process is done by hand, and only takes about 5-7 minutes. Your spray tan tech will let you know what ways to turn, bend, and move to ensure you get 100% full body coverage.

 

We’ll Dry You Off

Once your color looks equal and even, your spray tan tech will turn off the gun and get out the drying hose. They will use this hose to dry you for about 1-2 minutes until your skin no longer feels wet.

 

You’re Done!

When your skin dries, you’re officially done! When putting your clothes back on, make sure you wear baggy/ loose-fitting clothing to ensure you don’t accidentally rub any of the solution off your body. Some of the areas of your skin may still feel slightly sticky, but you should feel completely dry within an hour.

 

And there you have it! Now that you know exactly what to expect during your spray tan session, there’s no need to worry. Enjoy and happy tanning!
