STEP 1 - THE RELAXED EXPERIENCE

THE ROOM • THE ESSENTIALS • THE EXPERIENCE

The Prep Room
A professionally prepped room gives an immediate good impression to your client and an immediate step up from your competitors.


The Essentials

  • Hair net
  • Paper pants
  • Sticky feet
  • Clean towels
  • Lusso TanBarrier cream
  • Lusso Tan Primer
  • Lusso Tan


The Experience

We all want to feel comfortable, secure and looked after.
For clients to feel this, remove uncertainty, talk and guide them gently through their tanning steps of Priming, Tanning and Finishing Touches.


PREP

• Warm the room for your client as spray can be cold when it first makes contact with skin.

• Place a clean towel on the floor, where you want the client to stand (or a paper towel).

• Set sticky feet, sticky side up, ready for the client to stand on.

• Place a second clean towel on the floor, ready for the client to step onto once the spray tan is finished.

• Give your client paper pants and ensure they wear a hair net.


Make the client feel as comfortable as you can. Each client is unique, not everyone is used to striping down in front of a therapist, they may even feel exposed or uneasy. If a client seems uncomfortable:
• Using paper pants - explain they are more than welcome to keep their own pants on but the tan could stain.
• Being undressed - some clients may ask to keep a bra on. Try to reassure them that they are in a secure environment & although you can spray them wearing a bra, the final tan will look better if they took it off.

• Apply barrier cream for client.
If they need guidance, show them how to apply the barrier clean to palms of hands, front of hands including nails, top of feet including nails, elbows and knees.

TAN

Check the spray tan gun, test that it is working well by spraying a piece of tissue paper.
Apply 8%, 10% or 12% Lusso Tan spray tan, remembering to spray face, including ears.

FINISHING TOUCH

Let your client know about the range of Finishing Touch products available to enhance their t.

 


STEP 2 - THE THERAPIST RELATIONSHIP

THE QUESTIONS • TAN DISCUSSION


The Questions

This is your client, we want to help them be your long term client! Listening will help you satisfy expectations, put them at ease & help them connect with you as their therapist.

  • Ask what occasion their spray tan is for. This tan isn’t just a tan, it has a purpose, what is it?
  • Discuss in depth what percentage tan they would like, what depth of tan they prefer.

The answers will inform the percentage you will use, and how you explain this choice to the client.

STEP 3 - THE TAN

THE TAN STANCE • THE SPRAY TAN


The Tan Stance

Once the client has:

  • Applied barrier cream
  • Stripped to their underwear
  • Tied their hair back
  • Put their hairnet on

Ask them to stand on their sticky feet on the towel with their back to you, the therapist.
Ask the client to put their hands in ‘prayer’ in front of them. This will help smooth out the client’s back for a more even coverage & avoid over spray reaching the palms of the hands.


The Spray Tan

We recommend you use our Lusso Tan Primer to cleanse, plump and ready the client’s skin for the ideal tan. The tan itself is beautifully simple!

BACK - Start at the top of the back, spray downward in a long even vertical strokes all over the back.

LEGS - Repeat for backs of legs
TURN - Ask the client to turn round keeping their hands in prayer until you have sprayed legs.
FRONT - With same technique, start on the upper leg & spray downwards to the feet in even strokes.
SIDES - Ask the client to position their legs for you to achieve even coverage for inside & outer sides.

FEET - A quick, light spray on the tops of the feet is all you’ll need there.

FACE - Do this in three vertical strokes. Ask the client to hold their breath for each stroke.

SHOULDERS - When tanning the shoulders, chest & stomach area use the same even strokes as before.

ARMS - Tan from shoulder to hand. Remember to do the inside of the arm too.

SIDES - For the sides, ask your client to raise their arms. Start at the armpit & work your long even vertical strokes down to the pant line.

HANDS - Ask the client to make a claw shape with their fingers & spray in light even strokes.

 


STEP 4 - THE PERFECT FINISH

THE FINISH • SHOWING THE LOVE


The Finish

The finishing touches will give that final polish to your client’s tan and show the care you take in your work.

Wipe excess spray tan from finger & toe nails. Your client’s spray tan should now be dry and you can invite them to redress.


Showing The Love

It’s time to make sure the client feels good.
Ask them if they have any questions & if they are happy with the application.

If they have any concerns like:
The colour isn’t strong enough - reassure them that this is simply the guide colour and that their final tan will reveal over the next few hours.
Missed areas - using the Lusso Tan technique you shouldn’t miss any areas, so reassure them that all is ok.


Give this good aftercare advice:

  • To avoid getting their tan wet, especially showering, bathing or swimming, for 7 hours.
  • Guide colour can be washed of with lukewarm water after 7 hours.
  • To avoid soap or moisturiser with an oil base, these will fade their tan.
  • For best results, after 3-4 days use Lusso Tan’s moisturising Gradual Tanning Lotion.

This will prolong their tan and help skin look fresh and glowing.
