< Back  |  Education > 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.




  • 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.




  • 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.
