What is a Bombshell Bronze?

A #Bombshell Bronze is a custom, handheld spray tan in which Trish will customize your tan just for you and your tanning desires! Trish has been a Certified Advanced Master Spray Tan artist for over 7 years, in addition to being an educator and trainer, so rest assured, she will coach  and educate you so that you’ll get the best results possible from her!

When is the best time to get a Bombshell Bronze, AKA Spray Tan?

Anytime is a great time for a tan, but if you are tanning for an event, we recommend getting sprayed approximately 48 hours prior to your event.


Also, be sure to have nail and pedicure services and/or massages completed a minimum of 24 hours and waxing 48-72 hours prior to your session. This guarantees that there will be no left over lotions or oils left on the skin that could inhibit the ability for the tan to go on smooth and develop flawlessly!


*Hot Tip: Be sure to gently exfoliate and shave the night before your session! Your skin rejuvenates itself while you sleep, so this ensures healthy skin cells at your session! Healthy Skin=Beautifully Bronzed skin!

How much time do I need to allow for full development?

Because the DHA in the solution peaks between 12 & 18 hours, we suggest allowing your tan to develop for a minimum of 8 hours for best results. That means, no showering, no sweating, and no rubbing on the skin.

Pressed for time?? That’s ok! We have an EXPRESS #Bombshell Bronze available! Development time can be reduced to 1-4 hours, so you may shower after your prescribed development time! An Express Bronze is available for additional $10.

How Long will my Bombshell Bronze last?

Every skin type is different, and your results will vary depending upon how well your skin is prepped and maintained. You can expect your Bronze to last a minimum approximately 5 days, & could last anywhere up to 7-10 days!

Other Tips:

Do the skies look like rain?? Be sure to wear long pants and sleeves – preferably with a hood, and bring an umbrella! You don’t want to get speckled from getting rained on!

What if I need to come right after work, and haven't taken my makeup or lotion off?  Not to worry! Our handy Exmitt will help slough off all lotions, oils, sweat from the  the day, and leave behind a special primer and healthy skin to tan for best results! 

Hydrated Skin is Tan Skin: In addition to using the products we recommend to maintain your tan, be sure you are drinking lots of water! Good hydration starts from the inside!

I’m pregnant-But I need a tan! We hear you, Mama! And we’d love to take care of you, but we need a doctor’s note on file! Once we have that, we are happy to oblige, and we offer nose filters and good ventilation as well! When booking your reservation, please let us know if you are expecting, or breast feeding!

Do I still need SPF with my Sunless Tan? ABSOLUTELY. A Bombshell Bronze is NOT a base tan. ALWAYS take precautions and be sure to use your sunscreen!

Sunburns and spray tans don't mix: If you are planning on getting a spray tan, be sure to avoid getting a sunburn prior to your session. Sunburns compromise the skin, and in turn, your tan likely won't look flawless. We may not be able to tan you depending on the situation, so keep the SPF handy and on your skin at all times!
