Body Part Pricing

Hi everyone! I was wondering how you have been figuring out what to charge people who just want to get certain body parts tanned (face, legs, chest, etc.). Since we are going into the colder seasons, I have noticed more of my clients asking if I would be able to just tan their face and chest, or just their legs instead of a full body tan, which I have no problem doing, I just am not sure how to go about pricing that. Thanks in advance!

Re: Body Part Pricing

Same price as a full. Still have to make an appointment and tie up a room and clean up and if a tech is involved then pay them. They ain't coming in to make 2 bucks.

A session is a session. Same as a session in a bed. Full price.

Re: Body Part Pricing

Thanks for the reply Brian! I understand what you're saying but since the service will take a shorter amount of time and I will be using less solution and little to no disposables I would prefer my price reflect that. Plus, I would rather tan 5 faces at a reduced price then none at all because people think they are getting ripped off paying full price. I like keeping my guests with me and my salon :)

Re: Body Part Pricing

We have a top or bottom option from waist.

Often air rush clients will still have a solid tan and just need a touchup for an event.

Any policy that is logical and requested and makes money should be considered as viable.

Saying no is always bad advise.

Re: Body Part Pricing

Thank you for this title! Upon first glance on the main page without seeing where it was submitted, first thought was "wow, now we're talking about selling our body parts to stay afloat in this economy."

Thanks for the chuckle!

But we used to charge $45 full, $25 half or otherwise, but I do understand Brian's point.
