ENGFANT PREDICTION FOR 2005-2006.

The year of the heavy bronzers are gunna go bye bye. Light bronzers are gunna be the MAX anyone will want. FAKE IS OUT (as always). REAL IS IN. The BS about celebrities using SPRAY TAN is gunna PUKE out the truth FINALLY and the world will see that YES, they use spray tan IN ADDITION TO UV tanning.
The spray tan industry is gunna evolve (eventually) into "body detailing" over the next few years and the spray booths are gunna be found for close to NOTHING cause they are a joke. Only the sketchiest of places will be using the booth in the next few years cause they OWE way too much to get rid of them.
Light tingles are gunna get more popular as people realize that they are the best way to kick up a tan.

Challenge.

RandyR predictions for 2005 - 2006:

Salons with 8 beds or less will be FEW and FAR BETWEEN

The standard tanning bed will be 15 min VHO, "super" beds will be 9 mins or less

The cost of the top quality market-leading spray booths (Magic, Mystic) will NOT come down, as they will evolve just as UV tanning beds have...better, faster, more features, more efficient. Used spray booths will be available, but the new booths will always be preferred.

Only the sketchiest of salons will NOT have a spray booth because the successful salons will have taken all of their business.

Spray booth solution will be found by the FDA as safe to drink

President Bush will nuke Iran.

You Go RandyR!

Randy, I agree with your predictions on salon size and type of beds. If the larger salons don't swallow the smaller ones,The increase in the price of rental property will. I have been pounding smaller salons for years that they have to grow to survive.
As far as spray booths go, This is not the first time they have been on the market. They are either going to fade out again or emerge to a greater level where you will have all spray booths. The same way tanning beds emerged from being
in hair and nail salons.

"Spray booth solution will be found by the FDA as safe to drink"

See the reason why I run my mouth like a fool is because people's responses give away true ignorance.

WATER is SAFE enough to drink but WILL KILL YOU if you breathe in enough or even DRINK too much.

"Only the sketchiest of salons will NOT have a spray booth because the successful salons will have taken all of their business."

WRONG. The sweat shop salons will have booths. The higher end STUDIOS will have body detailing. Spray booth sessions are being GIVEN away and are already down to about $15/session in this area. If the price per session keeps dropping the money has to be made up somewhere.
Airbrush (including HVLP/LVLP) is the future of sunless. For 1/10 of the money of a top end booth you can have a top TOP end airbrush/HVLP set up with makeup, tanning, nails, tats and whatever else they can send through a air gun. Don't like mystic's solution. Use breeze, or JA, or Norvell or get them all. Something for everyone with out worries of scam warranties.

While I agree mostly in what you said, it all depends on the location. There is no way that an 8+ bed tanning salon will make it in a small village (say 1000 people) or rural areas. In the county that I'm in there is only 3 true tanning salons in the whole county. The biggest has a whopping 5 units. The population of the whole county is less than 40k last time I checked. In bigger populated areas, I can see the smaller salon not making it, but out in the sticks it's a whole different ballgame.

Kind of funny how a guy who thinks he is the Jay Leno of TanTalk cant see the comedy in that statement. DHA solution being drinkable was just an intentional ridiculous "prediction" intended to inflame spray booth haters like you, Engfant. Youre so sour over spray booths you cant even take a joke...and I didnt even mention the fact that my booth will be paid for within NINE MONTHS (this September)...that would've REALLY pushed you to the edge. YOU"RE the one who started this thread in a weak attempt to vent your frustrations over the success of spray tanning. No need to call me ignorant.

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.

Hopefully the correct people can read through the nuttiness. ALSO this was NOT a direct attack at spray tanning. YOU made it this.


Once again. True Ignorance.
"and I didnt even mention the fact that my booth will be paid for within NINE MONTHS (this September)...that would've REALLY pushed you to the edge."

That's all that matters. Dolla Dolla bill yall. Mines already paid for so if the FDA tells you to s-can that booth cause people are getting lung failure I'm all set. Don't wait until the product is fully tested. That would be stupid.
