Spray Tan FAQ

Here are some of the most frequently asked questions about our spray tan service.

Having a spray tan

Will I go orange?
No! You will not go orange, the product we use is a high quality water based product which leaves you looking as if you have a lovely healthy natural looking tan.

How do I clean off any excess tan once it has worn off?
The best solution to that is to rub the area with baby oil and have a lovely long soak, you can then exfoliate or rub gently with a face cloth.

How long does the tan last?
As your skin sheds naturally, so does the tan. So the tan will last for about 6 to 8 days, depending on how you take care of it.

Do I have to have my face spray tanned?
No you do not, though it must be understood that your face will most likely be a different colour to your body.

Can I use the darkest shade you have?
It is completely up to you, though if you go too dark the fading tan will look patchy. This is not the result of a bad tan or an inferior quality product, it is merely the result of a substantial difference in the tanned skin and your natural colour underneath. It is not recommended to go too dark.

How long does it take?
If you tan at Glow it should take no more than 10 minutes from start to finish.

Booking your spray tan

How many days before my special occasion should I get tanned?
One to three days would be best.

When should I book to ensure I get an appointment?
Book a week or two in advance to ensure you get the day and time slot which suits you best. Booking on the day or day before does not guarantee that there are time slots available.

What is the best way to make a booking?
As Tamryn is often busy with clients, it is sometimes difficult to answer the phone. The easiest way to make a booking is to email tamryn@glowcapetown.co.za and let us know what date and time you would prefer and whether you would like to tan at Glow or use the mobile service. Tamryn will get right back to you to finalise the arrangements. You are also welcome to send an SMS or whatsapp message, please just include your name.

Where are you based?
We are based in Kirstenhof, Cape Town in the Southern Suburbs.

Is it messy?

Will it stain my bedding or clothing?
No, the product is waterbased and washes out easily.

Will it mess in my house if I have a mobile spray tan?
We use a portable spray tan booth which catches all of the excess spray, this will then get folded up leaving your house perfectly clean.
