You might be wondering what a trial tan is, and whether or not it’s for you. Since the answer to this question will be different from person to person, we’ll tell you exactly what you need to know so you can decide for yourself.
At Pure Glow, we liken a trial tan to a makeup trial. A trial tan is simply a tanning appointment scheduled in advance of an event, with the intention of testing the tan to learn more about the service and to determine how you want the tan to look for an upcoming event. We recommending booking a trial appointment at least 2 weeks prior to your event, at the very latest.
Trial tans are commonly requested by Brides and clients with a big trip or event in their future. We find that they are especially helpful for clients who are unfamiliar with spray tanning or have yet to try Pure Glow.
In our studio, a trial tan is conducted with the same care and attention to detail that any of our appointments are conducted with, simply within the context of the reason for the trial.
The value of a trial is to learn about custom spray tanning as a service, to gain an understanding for our Look options, to gain an experts recommendation on Look choice based on your skin tone and preference, as well as the opportunity to live with the tan for 8-12 days to test, play with and evaluate over a period of time. A trial appointment provides a forum for you to get detailed answers to questions about timing, event considerations and tan performance that sometimes are best addressed in person. And lastly, we believe there is also value in testing out the brand experience as well, including an assessment of how comfortable the spray specialist makes you feel, whether they take their time with you and other aspects of their service.
Ultimately the decision to trial or not to trial comes down to a personality fit, in our opinion. We’re prepared to jump in with the spray tan novice three days before her wedding day to give her the best spray of her life, but if you know that you’ll breathe easier with some additional familiarity, then a trial tan is a great option for you.
