Sunless Salon

Just wondering everyone's opinion on a Sunless salon... I would do a combination of booth and technician. We have two salons in the area and their not capitalizing on the sunless revolution

Why would any salon stop doing sunless unless they did not know how to market that service. Sunless is the fastest growing segment of the tanning industry. Making a decision to drop sunless says a lot about your ability to maximize the income potential of a salon.

This explains many of your uninformed post.

You may want to also include custom airbrush . If you are going to specialize offer all of the best available. Having a great airbrush technician available by appointment only will generate as much as 50K additional income.

Re: Sunless Salon

Several Sunless only salons finding success in Atlanta area.

Seems as a 'typical' Tan salon shuts down, a sunless opens.

Re: Sunless Salon

Some of the big guys tried sunless only salons and didn't do well.

This was a few years ago, the market for sunless only may have improved since then.

My question right now would be why not do UV and Sunless? UV is still generating the bulk of the $$$ in most markets.
