Unlike tan extenders or gradual tanners that add a hint of color each day, self tanning products are applied at home and offer the same amount of color in one use as a typical spray tan. Don’t worry, clients won’t stop getting spray tans in the salon. It is a common misconception that selling self tanners will decrease sunless sales but the opposite is true. By highlighting targeted features and benefits, you can make self tanning products are a must have for anyone!
Regular spray tanners can freshen up color between appointments or replace color lost on fast-fading areas like legs or faces. While these client may be using a gradual tanning product, pairing that with a self tanner will keep them drenched in sunless perfection! Introduce seasonal tanners who disappear when the weather turns cold to self tanners before they stop coming in the salon.
