My name is Amber and I have been providing quality sunless tans and amazing customer service to the Quad Cities, Cedar County and surrounding areas since 2011. Our sunless solutions are organic based, all natural, paraben free, preservative free, cruelty free and vegan friendly!
Stay Golden caters to all skin tones and body types. We are here to give you a customized glow, boost your confidence and help you LOVE the skin you’re in! Airbrush tans are a healthy and safe alternative to dangerous UV rays and tanning beds!
Each client will be sprayed by a highly trained, knowledgeable spray tan specialist. Once we have the perfect blend created for you, we apply your sunless tan by airbrush in a private room. Each tan includes a PH primer, make-up remover wipes, hair nets, heated drying and setting powder.
Your tan will look so natural everyone will be asking you what your secret is. It's up to you if you choose to share, but I really hope you do! After all, the best compliment you can give is a referral!
My solutions have cosmetic bronzer in them. This enables you to leave with instant color and me to clearly see the spray applied to your skin. Clear solutions are also available. The bronzer will have to be left on for a minimum of 8 hours before you can rinse it off, or for 1 to 3 hours when choosing the rapid tan. The bronzer will rub off on clothing but it is water soluble so washes out of most clothing. The bronzer may drip, smudge, smear or run from time to time. This is normal and should rinse away in the shower, revealing a nice, smooth, even tan underneath. Do not touch your skin, especially while it is still wet! The bronzer will stain the palms of your hands orange. If you are getting sprayed near bedtime keep in mind that you do not want to touch yourself in your sleep. Also be careful when drying off and getting dressed after your spray to not get the bronzer on your palms. If you do not want to have bronzer on you for the full 8 hours I would suggest the Rapid Tan, which allows you to rinse off after 1-3 hours.
THE 8 HOURS
You cannot get wet for a minimum of 8 hours. Your tan will not develop immediately, and takes time to start to show up, hence the bronzers. During this time you will get darker as it develops. After you wash the bronzer away it will reveal your new tan. Your tan will continue to develop for the next 24 hours and will be at its peak and looking its best on the 2nd day. When getting a tan for a special event, plan your tan for 2 days ahead.
You will want to exfoliate at least 24 hours before getting sprayed. This will help your skin to be fresh and ready to hold the color. You will also want to exfoliate 3 to 4 days after your spray to prevent scaly, spotty-looking skin. For best results use a good pair of exfoliating gloves or cloth when in the shower. Continue to exfoliate daily until your tan has faded evenly. Once your tan has disappeared you will be ready for a new one!
