Re: BODYBUILDERS PRICING AND SOLUTION

Do you collect a deposit before spraying for a competition? And if so, when do you do that? I was thinking a month in advance to ensure they don't back out...or is that too far in advance? Thanks!

Re: BODYBUILDERS PRICING AND SOLUTION

We used to use ProTan. it does have more of a golden color and we offer 2 sprays at about $60. One spray the day before and one spray the day of competition. We just switched to JanTana. It is way more Brown in color!! And does not have the alcohol smell of ProTan.

Thank you Latinflavor for the answer, I did not see your comments about Pro tan for competition spray ... that is why I asked, I need to look at the sample of 14% product ;-)...Thanks again!

I don't collect a deposit. Clients for competition are less likely to cancel.

Re: BODYBUILDERS PRICING AND SOLUTION

I'm a little late here but I have never considered bodybuilders... I am very intrigued. How many coats do you generally do?

Hi Cluury, one thing that's important to consider when thinking about spray tanning bodybuilders is: do they want the tan 24/7, or just for the competition?

Many clients I've talked to usually only want their tan to last for the duration of the competition for the reason that the tans that are appropriate for the stage are not so for just walking around.

If they want the tan only for the competition then you should try to find a solution called a Bronzer, or a DHA free spray product--these will coat the body builder exactly as a spray tan would, but because it has no DHA solution in it they can just wash it off after the competition.

If they want to keep the tan, or maybe they have several competitions lined up, then either could potentially work--if they are willing to walk around with that over-the-top competition tan look then go with that, but I think you'd be surprised how many bodybuilders out there don't even realize they have a choice in the matter.

With that being said: A good solution will have a bronzer in it, whether it has DHA or not, so that when you are spraying you can see the difference instantly. It's basically like a coloring guide so that you don't over or under spray--simply spray until they are satisfied with the color.

The reason why I'm avoiding telling you a "magic number of coats" to use is because there isn't one. Every body is different--people have different skin tones, different wants, needs, and perceptions. With that in mind simply ask them what they want, spray them and have them look in a mirror: then repeat until they are satisfied.
