do you know, this is one of the things i would like to try and get under my belt this year, so many people ask me do i do it, not that i fancy doing it mobile, but if and when we move and i set up my little room, i could get a machine then

now ive saw a few places that offer training, what im wondering is, is it like nails, can you do a basic course start charging while you practise then build on it with more training and practise etc, or do you really need quite involved training b4 practising on the public without turning them into orange tango people

ie, is it fairly easy to learn or is it a definite skill, and where did you all do your training?

hope this makes sense

I thinlk its very different from nails hun, with spray tanning u take the training maybe do a few friends a family once u have ur stuff and then your good to go for the public, its sooo easy to learn and to pick up i think a 10 year old could lolol its that easy.
Theres no worry on people being orange cos u change the volume of the spray which can either lighten it or darken it, and audapends on the solution that u use on people. So its very easy to learn ur good to go on the public right away. And its a fab earner.Everyone wants to be looking gorgeous and tanned. xxx

Hiya yes im happy to help hun :green:

I paid xx.xx for my training which was with a lady from couture she come to my home and taught me.
And then i had to pay xx.xx for insurance so i can perform tans on the public.
then i paid xxx.xx And that was for my turbine tanning machine & 12 couture creams & 1l of solution. (the machine comes with the 1l tanning lotion wihtout the creams this costs xxx.xx)
And then i bought leaflets & stationary etc.

It sound pricey but really worth it xxx

I hope you do well hunny I really do,
You sound like a lovely girl, so young and yet head screwed on ..(at your age I was having babies lol ...was going to say nothing to be proud of...but actually I would be lying coz I am VERY proud of my kids lol )

anyway, I think its fab that at your age, you have learned a skill that will serve you well, providing you keep up with the training at the recomended times to keep you updated
...and are not on the dole or planning babies getting drunk and falling out of clubs etc... (well ok mabey on the odd occasion lol)

So big thumbs up to you and GOOD LUCK :hug:

Thats fab
When you do..paste a big smile on your face..show them you LOVE what you are doing,
Greet them tell them "ooh I love that coat" blah blah.
they will remember you for it,
Just dont stop a woman with a pram full of carrier bags..and 3 toddlers hanging off her legs...if you do ,you will be sorry forever lol :green:
