Re: Form Require To Spray Nude?

haha... thanks for sharing, If I allow to I will continue to talk more

Wow... 7 months of dark and -60 and -70 degree, sounds Extremely cold to me, I really admire how you all Alaskan able to keep up with this kind of environment, but because of the environment it make tanning salon to be successful, Congrats. Do you have a lot of competition over there? and I bet your electric bill will be little high because of the heater?

Oh My God I Can't Believe I'm Chatting With Alaskan, You Are Making My Dream Half Way Coming True haha...

Re: Form Require To Spray Nude?

as a male I would stay away from Spray tanning females ( any age) all together!
I this world you just never know what anyone is going to say!!!!!
A male can spray a male, and a female can spray a female!
Most customers are probably going to be more comfortable with that setup as well!
I wouldnt want some dude that I have never met before spray me in the nude...just saying

Re: Form Require To Spray Nude?

Ha Ha,

Yep, it is definitely challenging. A lot of the competition depends on where you are. Smaller cities or villages have no competition. The bigger cities are very saturated especially with the gyms and nail/hair salons getting their finger in the pie.

It just pushes us daily to provide the best service and so far it has worked great.

Along your original topic, another option you may want to consider is a spray booth that provides privacy, that has worked very well for us. Of course you would still offer manual sprays, but that could be a cost effective way of not having to have another employee on staff always.

On the Alaska topic, if you want you could PM me and I'll tell ya all you wanna know! Hubby is an Alaskan State Trooper, so make sure & watch that on Nat Geo if you wanna see real Alaska, lol

Back to the Topic, Yes I been thinking many many times to put a Spray Booth into the salon, but not sure you know I just took over this salon since April 15 this year, so I really can't afford to purchase one right now, as well as the space too, I have 10 beds in a 1000 feet salon, that would be another problem to putting a Spray Booth in, a major project that I may look forward to do in the future, thanks!

Back to Alaska, Yeaaa!!!

I bet is very challenging but I'm sure you are the most Outstanding one compare to the other.

Yes I really wanted to learn more about Alaska if you don't mind I PM you, Hubby here I come haha

Thank you so much for your Generosity!!!

If you don't feel that you have the overhead for a spray booth, you could start yourself off with a spray tan machine and equipment. It doesn't require much room at all and if you find out that the spray tanning business isn't as big as you thought, then you wouldn't be losing nearly as much if you haven't invested all that extra money and effort with a spray booth.

Or an even cheaper solution would be: talk to your customers and mention that you're thinking about putting in a spray booth and see how many seem to get excited about it. If there isn't a lot of interest, then you have your answer without purchasing anything.

You're welcome--I would just hate to hear that you bought something really expensive and it didn't work out!

It is definitely better to be safe than sorry!
