What To Expect.

Prepare for your spray tan appointment.

Before Tanning
What can I do to ensure I get the best spray tan?
EXFOLIATE! Exfoliating lessens the dead skin layer on the surface of your skin. After exfoliating, it takes more time for this layer to build up before it naturally rubs off. That means, your tan will be more even and last longer! Make sure you plan your day with the thought in mind that you will need to stay away from all moisture until your tan has had time to develop (8-10 hours). All other beauty appointments need to be scheduled the day before or after your spray tan. Waxing should be done a few days BEFORE your tan.
What do I wear to my appointment?
We suggest wearing or bringing dark, loose-fitted clothing. Clothing should be loose to allow the tan to develop without being rubbed off. Dark clothing is highly recommended as our solution has bronzer that can come off on clothing. Loose sweatpants, shorts, t-shirts, and maxi dresses are easy clothes to wear after an appointment.
What can I do to prepare for my appointment?
Shower, shave and exfoliate before your appointment! Wear or bring dark, loose-fitted clothing and open shoes. No bra is recommended. Do not wear any products to your appointment, including deodorant, lotion, perfume and makeup. If there is a chance of rain, bring an umbrella and long pants. Moisture should be avoided for 8-10 hours after the tan.
How do I prepare for a skin quench appointment?
You can shower, shave and exfoliate before these appointments but it is not required. The Skin Quench is an ultra-hydrating spray that works best if applied the day before or after your appointment to prolong your tan. It can also be used as a stand-alone treatment for moisturizing and anti-aging effects!
Tanning Aftercare
How soon after the spray can I shower?
Leave the solution on for 8-10 hours before showering for best results. We also offer an Express solution that is worn for 2-8 hours depending on how dark you’d like your tan.
Can I use products after my tan?
After your first shower, you can resume your normal product regiment. We highly suggest using a body wash and shampoo without sulfates as they strip the skin of their natural oils and can cause the tan to fade more quickly and/or unevenly. Body lotions should contain no sulfates, mineral oil or alcohol. OBB offers aftercare products to help prolong your tan as well as touch-up products.
What are factors that make my tan fade faster?
Chlorine (hot tubs and pools), saltwater, working out, and hot water can contribute to fading. Products with sulfates and/or mineral oils will also cause the tan to fade. OBB offers aftercare products to help prolong your tan as well as touch-up products. Avoid getting wet while your tan develops– no working out, no showering, and avoid sweating!
Can I workout after my spray tan?
Wait to workout until after your first shower. Leave the tan on for 8-10 hours. Remember, tight clothing that creates friction may cause the tan to fade in those areas more quickly. Moisturizing your skin daily can help prevent the tan from fading. We also offer 2 at home touchup products: 1) OBB Back to Bronze Mousse and 2) OBB Tan in a Can that can be applied to areas that may be affected by rubbing during your workout.

I love Organic Bronze Bar’s products and company values. They have a clean, elegant, and modern atmosphere. The shop is so beautiful and has an incredible view of the waterfront. I’ve had two great stylists and I’d trust either one of them with my locks! I highly recommend it!

I’ve always used a tanning bed.. Or shall I say used to! Because I hated my first two spray tans at another tanning salon years back! Was so nervous to get one… But I just absolutely love my spray tan OBB did for me ? I felt comfortable and was more than satisfied with my results ? cancelled my other salon account and switched everything over! Thank you so much!!!
– Emily
Oh my gosh, I love my spray tan! It is the first one I have ever had and I am very light skinned and a senior citizen I might add. I did a level 8 and I love it. I have to admit I was very nervous both about bashfulness and about the end result.. but NO MORE! The staff was wonderful and made me feel so comfortable and did an outstanding job! Thanks Organic Bronze Bar!!
– Glenda
I got a spray tan the other day and it looks SO natural and it’s very even. So much better than what the other salons have. I was told this spray is made out of walnuts making your skin the actual brown tint as opposed to other salons spray – being made out of beets!

How long does an appointment usually take?
An appointment can take as little as 15 minutes! For first time tans, we book 30-minute appointments in order to consult with clients before the tan.
Does the solution have an unpleasant smell like some self-tanners on the market?
We have an unscented solution that allows you to continue on with the rest of your day without the potent smell some self-tanners have. Some clients may notice a slight scent due to the way the their skin reacts with the ingredients in the solution.
Will spray tan protect me from getting a sunburn?
It is always important to wear SPF to protect your skin. Our solution has SPF 15 that may protect some skin tones (not all skin tones) for a few hours after your tan. You can apply SPF again after your first shower.
How brown will I get?
Everybody’s skin type is different. Depending on your ethnic background, base color, and skin type, your experienced technician will choose a level for you that is best suited to compliment your skin. If you spray tan regularly, your skin will get used to the solution and start to develop even more color!
How long will my tan last?
The tan will last about 5-10 days. The lifetime of the tan depends on pre and post care, and other factors such as skin type. It is important during the winter months to double the amount you moisturize. We highly suggest products without sulfates or mineral oil as they strip the skin of their natural oils and can cause the tan to fade more quickly and/or unevenly.
My spray tan looks different than my previous one – even though it was done by the same technician with the same solution?
The most probable cause is the condition of your skin. Your skin is a living organism and is affected by what you eat, the time of year, time of the month, stress, medication, etc.
Can I spray tan if I’m pregnant?
It is always important to talk to your doctor for approval. We can do a test spot on the skin, as increased hormones can make women more sensitive to products during pregnancy. However, the spray tan does not penetrate into the bloodstream, it only temporarily stains the skin, making it a safe treatment. Organic Bronze Bar solution has organic and natural ingredients, but a mask can be provided to avoid inhalation while being sprayed.
