I am the owner of a Family Hair Salon. I currently offer Airbrush Tanning. I am adding a tanning bed soon. I want to carry a LIMITED line of lotions (2 product lines; 1 upper end $$ and 1 lower end $$). What is your advice on the product lines I should carry?

Designer Skin. They actually offer 3 lines now. Designer Skin, Boutique Bronzing Ambiance and Tanning Tonics. I think that if you go with Designer Skin and Tanning Tonics, youwould have both upper and lower covered.

Caribbeansun01 took the words right outta my mouth (wait.. I'm typing, not talking... So- fingers?? Hmmm...).

Anyway, Designer Skin carries a diverse assortment of lotions without being overwhelming. Even their 'economy' lotions are a quality product, so clients will be happy with them.

Something to think about, since you offer Airbrush Tanning- California Tan and Norvell both offer many products that compliment Sunless Tanning (i.e. Sunless Tan Extenders, Primers, Touch-Up, etc.) Carrying those lines will bring a continuity between your Traditional and Sunless services.

Above all, don't get carried away by the hype surrounding many lotions. In a small setup, select two options at most for each type of lotion (bronzing, Hot Action, Accelerators,Cooling, etc...).

Even one line works with a good selection of sizes to fit all the pocket books. I use John Abate as my sole line and have had extreemly good reviews and service. No one has complained that I should carry more selection.

Any ideas about Tanology?? I've heard good things about their line. Does anyone know what percent commission the salon gets from their products?
