Get ready to Get Your Glow On!

RELAX – no fear, you’re in good hands. There’s absolutely no risk of turning orange and no chance of that awful zebra streaking!

Here’s everything you need to help you prepare for and best maintain your tan.

What to Expect

  • 1

    Your session will take place in a discreet pop up tent or booth.

  • 2

    You may wear your bathing suit, a disposable salon thong, or tan nude to avoid tan lines.

  • 3

    You will be guided through a series of quick, easy postures during the spraying process.

  • 4

    At the lightest level, you'll be asked to review the results. At Gotham Glow, we like to stay on the light side for the most natural result. If you prefer a darker look, let us know and we will customize the perfect color for you.

  • 5

    When the desired shade is reached, it's off to the dryer for the final step. There, you'll spend 5 to 10 minutes in front of a fan to allow the solution to set.

  • 6

    Once you've been checked and approved by your Gotham Glow tech, your session will be complete and you'll be ready to GLOW!

  • 7

    Tanning session takes 15-20 minutes (drying time included). The darker the tan, the more time required.

  • 8

    With proper maintenance, Gotham Glow tans can last 5-7 days.

  • 9

    Gotham Glow uses a proprietary solution derived from ogranic ingredients, loaded with vitamins to help nourish and enrich your skin. It is 100% noncomedogenic.

Pre–tan Prep Guide

  • Waxes, facials, manis, and pedis should be done prior to appointment. Be sure to remove all residual substances.

  • For best result, exfoliate before your appointment. Avoid oily scrubs.

  • Do not apply moisturizer or oils to skin before tanning. Tans are best applied to dry skin.

  • Bring loose, dark clothing to change into after your session. No jeans or bras please.

  • Shave before your appointment. For best results, use a blade for a closer shave and one without a glide strip. Avoid using aftershave and toners pre and post tan, as they contain alcohol and will dry out the skin.

Post–tan tips

  • Wait 8 hours before you allow any water to touch your skin. If you sleep in the solution, wear long, loose pants and a t-shirt. Avoid skin on skin contact.

  • Your first shower should be a lukewarm rinse without soap.

  • The color guide solution will wash off at this time. This is not your tan. Simply wait until the water runs clear before exiting the shower.

  • If you must shampoo during your first rinse, pull hair forward and wash or wash in the sink to avoid suds running down your back.

  • Use hands or a soft cloth to wash. Gently pat dry with a soft towel. Now your tan is essentially the first layer of your skin.

  • To best matintain, skip steams, hot soaks, massages, and scrubs. Moisturize dilegently with oil free lotion.

FAQS

  • Do I need to worry about looking orange or streaky?

    You absolutely will not look orange. Our solution does not have any orange tint. We specialize in making sure our clients leave with a natural glow. Our technicians are highly trained and you should not experience any streaking unless you fail to follow the given instructions.

  • What if I also need to shave after my tanning appointment?

    If you must shave, wait until the day after your appointment. Use oil and alcohol free products and maintain light pressure. Keep in mind that shaving is like exfoliating so the more you shave, the quicker your tan fades.

  • I love the way my Gotham Glow tan looks. How do i keep it up?

    Make sure you moisturize daily with oil free products. Refrain from exfoliating and/or engaging in activities which cause profuse sweating.

  • Can I get a mani/pedi after the tan?

    If your mani/pedi will include a soak, scrub, or massage, please be sure to schedule prior to tanning. Mani/pedis post tan can be file and polish change only.
