Another year has rolled around and there is a new collection of spray tanning machines out there with some pretty great upgrades. These features can provide some helpful benefits during tanning to not only make your spray tan look impeccable but also make the job easy breezy. So take note as we discuss and round up the best spray tan machines you can find on the market today.
The Maxi-Mist Lite Plus is an HVLP spray tan gun that features a powerful 300-watt turbine and German engineered spray nozzle that adjusts between a horizontal and vertical pattern for application. It is very easy to use and helps you to get into those hard to reach places to give the ultimate spray tan ever.
It has a lightweight design that you can take anywhere, anytime. The spray gun incorporates a non-stick needle that minimizes fluid build-up and clogging making it easy to clean plus you will find the overall machine cleans up pretty well.
The Cons: This system is designed to provide fine mist atomization with the least amount of overspray possible, but upon use I found this to be quite the opposite. Set on high, it uses a bit more solution than I would like, leaving me with a heavier tan that takes a longer time to dry. So you have to adjust it to a low or medium setting for best results.
I love the Oasis for its compact and portable design; it actually looks like a blow dryer. It is one of the easiest spray tanning machines to use, which makes it more than ideal for home and mobile use plus, it delivers expert results with fewer components than those all-in-one professional kits.
The MaxiMist Allure Xena is an at-home-worthy device with a compact design for even on-the-go users. It offers more than a typical handheld spray gun but is way less bulky than those massive all-in-one systems you find at the salon.
The flexible hose is adequately long for an at-home scenario; it twists and locks onto the spray gun securely for optimal movement during tanning. One of the best perks of the MaxiMist Allure Xena is how quietly it runs. It is built with noise-reduction turbines to produce a whispering sound effect during operation.
The tanning system delivers fine mist atomized spraying for a perfect-looking tan in as little as 5 minutes. This is due to its high-speed 570-watt dual-stage HVLP turbine, although it may take a user/technician with some experience to accomplish this.
The Fuji Mini is perhaps one of the most eye-catching spray tanning machines you will find. The spray applicator is metal with stainless steel components and hosts a fluid control knob to adjust easily between spray patterns. It has a long flexible hose to supply additional space and leeway when working.
Another Fuji masterpiece, this spray tanning system is excellent on the eyes with all the stainless steel fixings, its attractive black helix, clear plastic bend restrictor, 10 feet long flexible hose.
The Cons: When the unit actually starts overheating, unfortunately, the metal encasing gets pretty hot, so you may want to keep some distance away. Although, you should use that as an indicative signal to give the machine a break.
However, if you tan frequently like every couple of days, then having a larger size cup that holds more fluid would be more convenient. If you use your spray tan machine for work then the larger the cup the better as well. This allows you to facilitate consecutive clients seamlessly throughout the day without stopping to refill with more tanning fluid.
Side siphon-feed uses smaller cups which enables you to rotate the machine in various angles while spray tanning all while allowing you to view the strokes as they are being made without any obstructions.
Low volume low-pressure (LVLP) spray tan systems are known to be the least messy. They give users more control and time to carefully execute tanning. They usually have a lightweight design and are less likely to leak during a tanning session.
Accessories like the cup and the fluid that is placed inside add a couple of ounces to the overall weight plus the location of the cups (siphon or gravity feed) will affect the heaviness of the machine during use.
Small portable machines or a single unit spray gun can cost a minimum of roughly $40 and the bigger all-in-one spray system comprising of the tent, turbine, spray gun, connecting hose, floor fan, solution cups, safety glasses, nose filters, a sunless product line along with an online training course plus more, can cost you up to $4000.
Nonetheless, there are kits with fewer components for cheaper, as well as airbrush sprays that will cost anywhere from $20 and up, but be sure to look for the types designed for spray tanning and the user ratings that go along with them.
DIRECTIONS: For a VIVID Tan, hold 6-8 inches from skin and spray with a quick continuous side-to-side motion across areas to be tanned. Gently blend into skin with hands or damp towelette. Then proceed with tanning method of your choice.
The Sun Tanning Store sells thousands of bottles of sunless solution each year to salons and professional mobile spray tan technicians. One of the most frequent questions we receive from customers new to the spray tanning business or new to using Norvell products is what are the most popular HVLP solutions or what solutions or which solutions do you recommend I buy to start my business We've created this Norvell Sunless Solutions Buying Guide to take the guess work out of the process and help you select the right solutions for your clients.
Norvell Sunless is owned by Sunless Inc and they are the largest sunless solution manufacturer in the world. Norvell solutions are designed and made in the United States under rigorous controls and quality standards. This is critical as many spray tanning solution brands sold in the United States are actually manufactured overseas (primarily China) and then rebottled stateside by the sellers. Norvell has removed some of the solution guess work from the process for new buyers of equipment start up kits kits by including a sampling of their HVLP solutions (a mix of 34 oz and 8 oz bottles) to the help the new technician with the selection process. These Norvell sample solution packs consist of the most popular selling solutions along with samples of new products being introduced by Norvell Sunless.
Norvell Venetian is the most popular Norvell solution. The Venetian solution bronzer is made with a unique violet base, rather than the usual red in most sunless solutions, to further reduce the chances or orange development color. Venetian is a great solution for most skin types except very fair and for customers who have had had issues with orange development (along with a good pH balancing spray) for customers who have had issues with orange development. Norvell Venetian is currently the most popular HVLP solution made by Norvell.
Norvell Venetian Plus contains the same violet based bronzer as the top selling Venetian solution but it will have deeper instant color when sprayed on and the solution includes and a higher level of DHA content for darker development. When sprayed this solution will be darker and develop a few shades deeper than Venetian (see color chart). The Venetian Plus solution is a good choice for mid to dark skin types and will provide the darkest development color possible except for the DHA free Blackout utilized by competition bodybuilders.
The Norvell Rapid ONE solution is specially formulated with DHA activation enhances that allow your customer to rinse the bronzer off in between 1 to 3 hours depending on the desired development color. This is a great choice for customers that are uncomfortable or unwilling to leave the bronzer spray on without showering for the usual 8-12 hours. The solution develops similar to Premium Dark (red bronzer) but when left on 3 hours will provide a tan similar to Dark solution after 8-12 hours. It can also be rinsed off as early as 1 hour after application to offer a lighter sun kissed color. This solution offers a premium convenience factor to your customers and is a little more expensive than most. However, the rapid development feature is desired by some customers who are willing to pay an up charge for the convincing of rinsing off sooner rather than later. 781b155fdc
