If you’ve never had a spray tan before, you might not know what to expect. Different salons offer uniquely different experiences, and no two are alike. For your first time, you can’t go wrong with Gotham Glow New York.
As the premier airbrush tan salon, Gotham Glow features experienced technicians trained to offer you a sculpted tan look that customized to your skin tone. Their in-salon tans range from the Gotham Glow, a natural-looking hint of color perfect for anyone.
They also offer the Microglow, which is subtle enough to tone down extremely pale skin without looking too dark, and the Macroglow, for those who want some deep, dark color.
What to Expect
When you first walk in to Gotham Glow, the first thing you’ll do is meet with a skilled technician who will help you choose the best color and tanning solution to achieve your desired results.
Each tanning session takes place in a private booth, so no need to worry about your privacy. You can wear your swimsuit, if you’d like a few tan lines, wear a disposable thong provided by the salon, or tan nude. The choice is yours, but remember that once you’ve been sprayed, tan lines can’t be blended or filled in.
Once you’re ready, your fashion technician will guide you through the spraying process. After a couple of quick, easy poses and some spraying, you’ll get to look at the results. If you like what you see, you’ll head off to the dryer to help the tanning solution set on your skin. If you want to go darker, your technician will repeat the spraying process until you are happy with the results.
The entire process is quick, taking only about 15 to 20 minutes from start to finish. The darker you want your tan, however, the longer it will take, so it’s a good idea to plan accordingly.
Things to Remember
- The tanning solution at Gotham Glow is proprietary and organic, as well as noncomedogenic.
- A Gotham Glow tan is a bit different from other spray tans and lotions. If you take good care of your tan, your glow can last up to 7 days.
- You’ll need to leave the tanning solution on your skin for at least 8 hours before showering; 4 hours if you get an Express Glow.
- After your first rinse, the salon recommends using oil-free lotion and sunscreen for best results.
- Tipping your technician is appreciated.
