Error on Randy R's speech, BUSH will be crying for a job at McDonalds because he won't be the president for another 4 years

Coppertone, I completely agree with your post regarding the success of smaller salons and, again, I was just trying to get to Engfant. He comes on here with his super negative, hating attitude with his "predictions" about spray tanning and then when someone responds to his "CHALLENGE" he cant handle it. I made my predictions. Thats what they are, predictions....opinions -- not something to be wrong about or argued over.

Randy, there isn't even a sunless unit in the county. My son's friends was in a wedding about a month ago. They (twin girls) drove 45 miles to the closest one. They got it done and it was a mess. They both had to go back the next morning (day of the wedding) to get it redone. To this day they still have streaks from the sunless. I guess the people doing it must not know what they were doing or at least sounds like it.[ This Message was edited by: Coppertone on 2004-08-18 22:50 ]

Our unit works well. We discourage people from coming in and trying it though the day before or of an event. Come in a week before so you can try it out before hand so you know exactly what you are getting. You may not like it but if you do you can always come back and do it the day before your event. This is just like UV tanning. Dont wait to long. We have alot of people trying it now and liking it. They know they can use it at a later date with no problems.

COPPERTONE you said whe wedding was a month ago - they still have streaks to this day. Come on - are these people. Do they have fur. I usually go though quit a bit of skin in a month. But if they have fur I totally understand. I assume if you had fur and got the spray on wrong - and dont take a bath or lick yourself - I guess you could still have streaks. ALso in Mich maybe you need fur. Burrrrrrrr it is cold. Not me I have streaky fur.

Top250. They do have blotches. Does that sound better.

I don't have spray tan although I probably get a phone call every day asking (I don't have the space for it regardless) There are others in town with it. Frankly, I have only heard of one person who is a happy regular. Most are eager to try it and are happy with the initial results but really dislike the blotching afterward - the uneven fade... any comments from those in the know?

I'm not going to bash sunless tanning because I have no experience with it. The only experience that I have are
1. I get at least one phone call a day asking if we have spray on tanning. This makes me wonder if I should carry it.
2. Customers who have used the spray on tanning have mixed thoughts about it. Some like it and some don't. Those who don't have complained of an orange color and an uneven tan requiring an additional purchase of sunless lotion.

I guess that I'm not convinced one way or the other. If I'm going to invest a substantial amount of money on a product, I need to feel least 90% sure that it's going to sell good for at least several years. I'm afraid of it being a trend. I also don't want to have 50% of my spray on tanning customers happy and the other 50% complaining about streaks, etc.

I was hoping that this website would clear up my fears so that I would feel confident about the product. Unfortunately, that hasn't happened.
