Coppertone,Being in a small area you can actually make more money then a salon in a city with alot of other salons.
You can set your price and be done with it.
NO wanna be's lowering prices to the level that all they are doing is getting by.

True, but I have a hair salon doing $3 tans and a gas station in the next town over doing $5 Hex II tans. Most of my clients are value oriented as I'm sure a lot of salon owners have this to. It's hard to sell $40 on up lotions here. My most popular line is Synergy. I can't keep Brown Envy on the shelf. I also added Swanky Girl and doing pretty good with Cat's Pj's and 5th Avenue Minx.

I have been meaning to email you as I'm planning to do our local schools athletics and cheerleading dept's. Do you have a letter that you use and what are you specials?

"Kind of funny how a guy who thinks he is the Jay Leno of TanTalk cant see the comedy in that statement."

Not to give my location away but I went through the same school system as Chinno. He used to come visit the school (once in a LONG while).

That big chinned schlub has nothing on Krusty the Clown!

Geeze coconut. For someone claiming to be a slammer you won't even let us throw down! He started it with that spray comment.
(that's my way of admitting I lost it for reasons not related to Randy's comment. There is some other disturbance on this board that's gunna make life difficult for others)

I hope that fool doesn't nuke anyone. It made good TV when it seemed like the thing to do. Don't know anymore.


Anyone think that there is gunna be a market for the HIGHER UVB apps? Is there a need for 9.5% UVB "tanning" systems? (I think they call those TOASTERS in my parts) Everything seems to be shifting toward the HUGE UVA and a super controled UVB.

Coppertone, Where are you located in Michigan?

I think it is an attack on spray tanning. If you dont want a spray tanner dont buy one. Those of us that do like it. Spray tanners are going to get cheaper and very soon (by the end of the year). Also if you can get the same result in a spray tanner (and you can) why would you go to the trouble of the airbrushing. Airbrusing not only do you have to pay for the spray itself but you have to pay someone to apply it. Our spray booth cleans itself all we have to do is wipe it down. Daily maintenence take about 3 minutes (cleaning jets) and once a month we have to take the jets off and clean them. Spray booths are getting bigger every year and are not going slow down any time soon. You think these companies are dumping money into these systems because they think it is a fad.

It does work better with UV tanning though. We encourge people to use the spray tanning and then go into our HP unit for just a few minutes. We are getting great results.

It's only an attack on UNEDUCATED POSTS about spray tanning. I WANT people to INVEST HEAVYLY into spray booths ESPECIALLY if it's your last red cent. It'll make finding a slightly used booth for $5K just THAT much more realistic.

My prediction:Some booth disty will hit engfant with a truck,He lives,He sues,He wins,He buys new lighting for his salon.

top250tansyou 08-18-2004 07:36 PM

HAHAHAAHHAAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH ok eng I get your point. What if you could have a brand new one for around 15k?

engfant 08-18-2004 07:40 PM

I wish that would happen but I'd probably end up bankrupting the company with any winnings over $50. You don't understand. I sit and stare at all these cool lighting ideas online. Hmmmm send Ergoline this way. I'll leap in front of those scumbags. (jokes people.) I don't cheat...which is why I'm broke.
