I have been airbrush tanning in a high-volume airbrush studio for a year and now want to start getting into the bodybuilding market. I've only on occasion sprayed a 12% on clients who wanted to be really dark, but did not spray more then two coats, and they did not come in for a repeat session to make it darker.
What kind of protocol do you use when spray tanning body builders and other clients who do "stage tans"? How many times do you spray them, how many days out, do you spray the day of their competition, and when do they shower? Do you contour?
For business development, does anyone have any suggestions? Who influences body builders' tanning choices (i.e. coaches, other body builders). What's the best way to network with this group and competitors in similar sports like fitness modelling?
