How Do I Use Lavish Tan Solution?

Finally, one solution for all skin tones! This allows you, as a business owner, to save not only time between clients but money as well. The darkness level is determined by how much solution the skin is absorbing. If the color is initially applied dark on the skin, it will develop dark. If it is applied using either a lighter gun setting or less layers, the color will develop lighter. Basically, what you see instantly appear on the skin is what the final color will be after the first shower. You will not have to switch your gun cups between clients and you do not have to have worry about obtaining 3 different DHA% solutions in stock. For VERY dark complexed clients who may desire a darker color we suggest adding 5-7 DARK DROPS to each 2 oz cup of Lavish Tan solution.

Why Is Your HVLP Tanning Machine Recommended Over Other Machines?

The HVLP Airbrush Spray Tan Machine that is available for sale on our website is the newer model of the machine that we use in our salon. After testing many different machines in our salon, this is the machine that we have used it our salon for over 6 years and have never had any issues with the original machine we have purchased! The machine is very simple to use and is extremely easy to learn how to tan with. It is very light weight, which is great if you ever need to take your machine on location. The extra cup that comes with the machine is great for having solution ready for each client as they walk in. The best part about this machine is the consistency of the spray that comes out in a circular pattern, which will ensure even non-streaky results. We recommend that you set your gun setting at a diagonal position, instead of a horizontal or vertical position. Along with applying an even tan this machine also produces minimal overspray. We highly recommend this machine to anyone who is looking to start airbrush tanning!
