Bodybuilding Competition Season is upon us – who is doing your spray tan?

Not only does Bronze Beauty specialize in regular spray tanning for your every day events, but we also specialize in competition spray tanning. Competition Spray Tanning is an art of its own. Instead of applying one coat, like a regular tan, we apply anywhere from two to five coats. YES 5 COATS! Yikes, that’s a lot of color!

We know how hard you worked to get your body to be stage ready. The last thing we want  you to worry about is if your tan will turn out perfect. You leave that to us. We spray you the day before your show and if need be, we will even do touch-ups the next day and apply glaze so your muscles can pop even more. We like to think of ourselves as your spray tanning assistants for your shows. We are very detailed in what we do and want to make sure your tan is perfect before you step on that stage.

A typical competition spray tanning session does take about 45 minutes, which is longer than a normal spray tan. Of course, this can be shorter or longer depending on how many coats you need. The amount of coats you need depends on the class you are competing in and your skin type. If you typically tan easily in the sun, you will need less coats. The reason why bodybuilders need so many coats and need to be dark, is because the lights on the stage really washes out your skin tone. If your skin tone is washed out, your muscles don’t pop as much as they should. Or at least that’s what I have been told – if there is a different reason – educate me :-).

If BBST is a spray tanning sponsor for a show, we have the privilege of being there back stage with you for the whole show. We do your touch ups in the morning before the show, we apply that, oh so fun, glaze and even apply some bikini bite for the girls to hold those beautiful suits in place. It’s a 24 hour day job for us, but we are excited to help and provide amazing services to our clients.

Take a look at some of our work here: That link will also give you more information about your session including cost and the skin prep involved. We also have tons of photos posted on our Facebook page:
