What Will You Learn?

Airbrush tanning is a much-improved version of spray tanning that gives a more natural look based on the recipient's skin type, uses natural substances (rather than dangerous chemicals), requires only one session, and lasts for 6-10 days. This course will teach you, step-by-step, everything you need to know to start and grow your airbrush tanning business.

From the course, you will discover how airbrush tanning is defined. This includes why it has come about and the benefits of this technique over other sunless tanning options and sun tanning itself, taking cost, health, application, and aesthetics into consideration.
