Disposable Hair Caps

A client’s hair can be stained by the spray tan solution during a tanning session. Protect your client’s hair by having them wear a disposable hair cap before the session begins.
Disposable Therapists’ Face Mask
Spray tanning sessions must always be done in well-ventilated rooms and with an extraction fan. Therapists who schedule multiple clients a day, however, may need extra protection from the fumes. Wearing a disposable therapist face mask protects the technician from any fumes.
Disposable Latex –Free Gloves
These gloves are a must-have for any tanning technician to avoid a mess. The disposable gloves keep your hands clean from any tanning solution or dirt. They’re comfortable and will help you avoid the tell-tale signs of a tanning session.
Disposable T Strings And Bras
These disposable underwear are for clients who don’t want to get their own underwear dirty or want less visible tan lines. Bring disposable t strings and bras to protect any client’s modesty and to prevent damage to their clothes. It’s a one size fits all, and the clients will appreciate how much thought you put in by offering them these options.
Even experienced tanning technicians may apply a little too much tanning solution. The buffing mitt allows the technician to dab excess product for a clean and even finish. An ideal part of any tanning travel kit for both novices and professionals.
Breathe Through Nose Filters
Tanning solutions can have irritating effects on the nose. Let your clients breathe effortlessly through nose filters to keep them comfortable throughout the whole session. They’ll be able to breathe without inhaling any possible irritants from the tanning solution. A must-have for customer care.
Tan extenders will prevent your beautiful tan from fading away too quickly. Using this product will help make your tan look fresh long after your last tanning session. Show off your beautiful body and top it all off with an awesome tan and all eyes will be on you.
