2 HOUR TANNING SOLUTION

 

Traditionally, a spray tan is left on for about 6 - 8 hours - showering after this washes away the bronzer / colour guide revealing the developed tan underneath.

 

The difference with a 2 hour tan is that you wash the solution off after 2 HOURS rather than 6 or more. Often confused with being a rapidly developing tan, the 2 hour tan develops at exactly the same speed as a 'traditional' spray tan. The advantage is in the ability to wash the application off after 2 hours.

 

You will notice after showering at 2 hours, the bronzer will wash away and you will appear to have no tan at all. It isn't until 3-4 hours after application that you will begin to rapidly see the tan revealing itself. The tan will peak in development at around 8-12 hours.

 

IMPORTANT: Do not leave your 2 hour tan on for longer than 2 hours or overdevelopment may result. If you would like to go darker, ask for the 'Dark' Strength of the 2 Hour Tan rather than leaving a lighter strength on for longer.

 

 

ADVANTAGES:

  • Convenience to go about your day sooner.
  • No need to sleep in your tan - dirtying your sheets.
  • Need to be tanned for a night out?  Get sprayed after work - have a shower after two hours - get ready as usual...  by the time you are out and dancing you will be tanned and getting browner by the minute as it continues to develop.

 

 

WHY STILL USE THE TRADITIONAL 6 HOUR 'ORIGINAL TAN' ?

  • The 'Original' tan is useful for clients unable to wash at 2 Hours. For example - Tanning on your lunch break (unless you are able to shower at work).
  • Sometimes people just 'prefer to stick with what they know' and want to keep using the tried and trusted 6 hour tan in their beauty regimen.

 

 

 

NOTE: Both the 2HR and 6HR tans come in 3 strengths - LIGHT / MEDIUM / DARK.
