The problem is people think... well I won't do that again it didn't work or looked horrible because it was spotty or way to dark for your skin tone. Most consumers don't know that the sunless industry is not regulated, so ANYONE can go pick up a machine and solutions and just start spraying people. All they need is a business license with the state and county they are operating a business in...thats all.
Some sunless companies offer training when you buy a package with them but always an additional cost, most think.. "oh this is easy I don't need to spend money on training" IF it was sooooo easy how come there are so many bad spray tans out there?
Alot of bad tans come from unprepared clients and technicians who have no idea about skin, skin tones or know even how to do a consultation.
When looking for a professional check out their reviews, ask about training and ask questions about them and their reason for offering this service. You as a client have a right to know that who will be spraying you knows what they are doing before you even make an appointment. Be proactive in your own glow!
