    I am a plus size girl and have never gotten a spay tan, I am interested in it because I am getting married this Saturday and want to have a light brown glow because my dress is a strapless. I didn’t know if my size would matter or not or if it is not enough time to make a difference. I look forward to hearing back from you

  2. Denise Graves April 18, 2013 at 5:02 am #

    No, size doesn’t matter. Congratulations! You should watch the videos for the Mystic & the Versa Spa. You will need to shower & exfoliate before hand & then call for an apointment. We should be able to get you in tomorrow. Make sure to tell the staff that you are getting married on Saturday! Thank you, God bless & have a great wedding!

    How do you recieve the free spray tan?

  4. Tropical Tan May 22, 2013 at 1:27 am #

    Hi Michelle,
    If you are a new client, UV Free Spray tans are buy one get one Free.*

    I am wanting to get a spray tan before my homecoming dance, because I am wearing a strapless dress. I have never gotten a s tan before.

    • Tropical Tan January 24, 2014 at 11:49 pm #

      Hello, you need to spray 3-4 days before your event. It will last up to 7 days. The Versa & Mystic are both great, it’s personal preference. They both offer level 1,2,& 3 so you can choose how dark you want. We offer buy one get the other free to new clients so you can choose your favorite. My girls are great at helping you decide on what will work best for your skin type. Please stop in the salon & talk to one of our managers. I just did the versa spa last week for a show @ it turned out perfect, no streaking. With the newer technology it’s pretty flawless, unless you get wet before your 4-6 hours is up. That can mess it up. Hope that answers your questions. Have a great day & God bless!

  6. Nicole January 24, 2014 at 10:57 pm #

    I would like to get a spray tan before a school dance. I have never gotten one before, and I have a few questions:

    •How many days before my event should I get the spray tan?
    •Which type is better for beginners (mystic or versa)?
    •Will it be streaky at all?
    •Lastly, I am curious how dark the color comes out, and if it is adjustable. I don’t want to be super dark, just a nice summer glow.
    •Will I need to schedule an appointment?

    Thank you.

  7. Nicole January 25, 2014 at 7:07 am #

    That sounds great! I will definitely be in soon! Thank you for your help!

  8. Casey April 16, 2014 at 6:26 pm #

    If I got a bronzer level 1 spray tan on the 26th, would I still be tan for prom on the next Saturday the 3rd?

    • Tropical Tan April 18, 2014 at 7:45 am #

      Hello Casey, if you spay tan it will generally last one week, it begins to fade towards the end of that week. To have the best color, I’d recommend spay tanning 3 days before your event. Everyone’s skin type is different, so I cannot guarantee the tan will still be at it’s best if you wait 6 days. If you are a new spray tan client, you get buy one get one free. Hope that helps, have a great day & God bless.

      • Casey April 18, 2014 at 6:56 pm #

        How long do I need to wait before I take a shower?

        • Tropical Tan May 19, 2014 at 9:14 am #

          At least 4-6 hours, but honestly I like to do stay late at night, sleep in it & then take a shower. The longer you leave it on, the more time it has to develope.

  9. Tracé McMullen May 18, 2014 at 5:27 pm #

    Why is there a price difference in the two spray tans…..what is the difference???

    • Tropical Tan May 19, 2014 at 9:19 am #

      Honestly it’s just the way we structured our prices. Both spray tans are great & both have different levels & add ons. Fairer skinned people tend to like the Mystic, Darker people tend to like the Versa Spa. If you are new we let you buy one get the other free, so you can try both & decide which one works best for your skin type.

  10. Shawna Salkil June 6, 2014 at 8:47 am #

    I have gotten an airbrush tan before and my feet turned out horrendous. How does this do with the tops of feet? I have vacation starting the 13th so I would love to come in next week and get sprayed if I can!

    • Tropical Tan June 8, 2014 at 10:49 pm #

      First off have one of my managers walk you through the process. Its important to put barrier cream on the bottom, around the edges, in between toes.

  11. Holly June 11, 2014 at 2:58 pm #

    I would like to get spray tan before my sisters wedding on June 21st. I have never gotten one before and it kind of scares me because I’ve seen some girls get spray tans and it just doesn’t look good. I don’t want to go to dark but I don’t want it to be to light that its not noticeable. I was told by a friend that Tropical Tan was a really trustworthy place to go. I would just like to know how much it would cost me and if Id be able to come in soon to get a spray tan ASAP

    • Tropical Tan June 12, 2014 at 9:55 pm #

      Hi Holly, You can come in any time. Since you have never had one, you need to watch the video. You can go online to http://www.tropicaltanjoplin.com & click Spray Tanning or you can watch it at the salon. As a new client you get buy one get the other one free. This gives you a chance to try both the Versa Spa & the Mystic HD, they are both great. I personally prefer the Versa Spa, but my manager, Eden, loves the Mystic. You need to shower & exfoliate before you spray tan. Do not use soap, lotions, or oils. No makeup. For best results, we have products for purchase at the salon. You can use body wash. If it is raining you need to bring protective covering, you cannot get wet for 4-6 hours. They start at $25 & go up, it all depends on what level you want & if you want ad ins. Come in & let the staff give you a tour & help walk you through the steps. Ask for Jeannette, Eden, or Ashleigh, they are the managers.

    I am wanting to get a spray tan for my sisters wedding on June 21st. I am scared to get one because I’ve seen girls get spray tans before and they just went terribly wrong. I want it to look as natural as possible but I want it to be noticeable too. I don’t want it to dark or to light. My friend told me that Tropical Tan was a good reliable place to go. I would just like to know how much it would be and if Id be able to come ASAP.

    How long does it take to get the full color in the mystic spray tans. I’ve heard it continues to get darker throughout 6 hours after you do it?

    • Tropical Tan April 27, 2015 at 5:53 pm #

      Yes, it takes 4-6 hours to develop. I personally like to do mine at night & sleep on it, then shower in the morning. It gives you great color, if you’d like to enhance the color even more try a cocktail, tan first using only the UV free sunless products & then do the spray. Hope this helps. Have a great day & God bless!

    I’ve been thinking about tanning for a while now and was wondering what you would recommend, I am 17 and never been tanning before. I also burn easily. Would you recommend spray tanning or bed tanning

    • Tropical Tan November 14, 2015 at 5:11 pm #

      You have to have a parent with you in order for you to tan at 17, they have to sign a release form. As far as what I would recommend, you need to come into the salon & fill out our skin analysis form so we can determine if you are a candidate for tanning. Spray tanning is very popular & would be a great alternative to getting some color.

  16. Heather wiley May 13, 2015 at 6:08 pm #

    For the buy one get one free, can you buy one and give one to your friend or do you have to use both the spray tans on yourself

    • Tropical Tan September 19, 2015 at 8:09 pm #

      Both for yourself.

  17. Andrea July 29, 2015 at 1:08 pm #

    I just came in today for the first time. The salon girls were great! I got a Versa uv free tan, and was also offered a free base tan. Are the spray tans not buy one get one? I was not offered that option. Thank you- first time client 🙂

    • Tropical Tan July 29, 2015 at 10:47 pm #

      I checked with the girls & Erica did add a free Mystic to you name, she realized it after you had already left & added it. ?

      • Andrea July 30, 2015 at 10:25 am #

        You guys are awesome! Thank you so much!! My new tan looks great today, abd I look forward to being back very soon ?

        • Norma Barnes September 7, 2015 at 9:54 am #

          I am an older lady who has never had a tan before and I am very light skinned!! I am going to my class reunion on Sept 12th in San Diego and would like a little color!! Could you tell me how much this would cost and if I can get just enough color to make it look natural and not that orange color that comes with store bought solutions??

          • Tropical Tan September 7, 2015 at 11:41 am #

            We start at $25 & go up. New clients get buy one get one free. You should come in & speak to the staff & they will help you decide what will work best for your skin type. Yes, it will give you natural color.

    are the spray tanning rooms private? i have tanned in tanning beds in the past but not with tropical tan and im pregnant now so i cant use tanning beds but im not a big fan of tan lines…..was wondering if swimsuits like in the videos are required…

    • Tropical Tan September 7, 2015 at 12:24 pm #

      Yes, rooms are private. swimsuits are optional.

  19. Heather Townson June 11, 2016 at 8:36 am #

    Does the equipment walk you through the position changes?

    • Tropical Tan June 13, 2016 at 10:14 am #

      Yes, both booths walk you through. We also have videos to watch before you spray & our staff is great at answering any questions. God bless & make it a great day?

  20. Meagan Roberts July 19, 2016 at 1:09 pm #

    I have never had a spray tan before. However, I always get the run of the house special. I waited a little too long this time to get dark for an event I have this saturday. Spray tanning had ran across my mind. Should I make an appointment today or tomorrow? Also I am wanting to look like I have a pretty nice tan. Would I need to get one session? or several before saturday?

    • Tropical Tan July 21, 2016 at 12:15 am #

      Spray tans are a great option, in fact we offer a cocktail if you would interested in it, first prep your skin for spray tan,make sure to use a lotion specially formulated for spray tanning, tan in a tanning bed then spray tan. Sorry, We do not book appointments through emails, please call or stop by Tropical Tan & they can help you choose what would work best for you. Double dip is a great lotion for tanning & spray tanning afterwords. The staff will be happy to answer any more questions you may have about spraying. God bless & make it a great day.

    I am very fair skinned and prone to sin damage, so fake tanning has been my go-to. I’ve used self tanners but never spray tan. My issue with self tanners is that many of them look great on my arms but streaky on my legs. The pigment settles into little speckles whete my leg hair grows. The other issue is that I hate that they only last a few days. Wit spray tanning, how even is the color and how long does it actually last?

    • Tropical Tan October 1, 2016 at 7:38 pm #

      Hello, everyone’s skin is different, but our spray tans last up to a week. Our clients love the coverage. Make sure to exfoliate before you spray and do not use any lotions or oils, this can cause your tan to be uneven. Our staff can help you with any products to help you achieve the best tan. God bless and make it a great day!

  22. Jordan September 27, 2016 at 12:56 pm #

    Hello! I was wondering what type of exfoliator you recommend and if the barrier cream is provided in the Mystic spray tan.

    • Tropical Tan October 1, 2016 at 7:30 pm #

      Hello, yes we provide barrier cream and we carry some exfoliators, the staff will be glad to help you with that when you come in. Thank you, God bless and make it a great day!
