Spray tans are an increasingly popular beauty treatment. With recent advancements in the industry, the innovative techniques and high quality products produce results that are nothing short of amazing.
Compared to tanning from the sun or with sunbeds, spray tanning is the healthier, skin-friendly option for a sun-kissed look without the considerable health risks.
We offer spray tans by Sienna X and Fake Bake, both of which provide superb results. Your therapist will be able to advise which is most suitable for you, based on your skin type, how long you want your tan to last and the type of look you desire.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is spray tanning? Why does it work?
Spray tanning involves applying an active ingredient, dihydroxyacetone, or DHA, to your skin using a specialist low pressure spraying machine.
DHA is a colourless sugar, it interacts with the proteins and amino acids in the outer layer of your skin to produce a golden brown colour (it‘s a similar process to when sliced apples go brown when exposed to air).
You will be sprayed with a lightly coloured solution of DHA, but the actual tan takes 6-8 hrs to develop and the colour guide will wash off when showering. Your therapist will tell you how long to wait until you can bathe or shower.
What should I do before my spray tan?
- Do not use any other self tanning products 1 week before spray tan.
- Wax or shave at least 24 hours prior to spray tan.
- On the day of your spray tan DO NOT wear any make-up, deodorant, perfume, body oils or lotions as these may react with the tanning agents in the spray tan liquid.
- Wear loose, dark clothing and bring some sandals or flip flops.
What will happen during my treatment?
On your first tanning session, the therapist will ask you a number of questions and then fill in a consultation card.
Then the therapist will give you a few minutes to get undressed into the disposable briefs provided or change into your underwear and remove jewellery.
Next, a barrier cream will be applied to your hands and backs of your feet and any dry areas to prevent them from tanning too much.
The spraying will take about 10 minutes plus an additional few minutes to dry. For your spraying, you will be invited to stand in a tanning cubicle, to ensure the spray goes on your skin, not into the air.
The initial tan colour you‘ll see is actually the cosmetic guide colour.
What should I do immediately after my spray tan?
- Keep skin completely dry, avoid water contact.
- Do not apply any products over the developing tan.
- Allow tan to develop for at least 6/8 hours (overnight if possible).
- Avoid other beauty/hair treatments whilst tan is developing.
- Avoid activities that make you perspire.
