Since I was about 16 years old, I have had an obsession with fake tan. From starting out with the cheap self tans from Superdrug, to eventually working my way up to higher end brands like Sienna X.
When I turned 22, my entrepreneurial spirit showed itself and I decided to book onto a training course to be come a tanning specialist.
Starting up my own spray tanning business wasn’t something I had ever considered before but my friends and family convinced me it was something I had to do, not only because it is an excellent way to earn some extra money, but it was something that everyone knew I was passionate about and I would succeed in.
I booked my course with Sienna X and I learnt everything about applying the perfect spray tan and got to take part in practical demonstrations along with learning about the necessary pieces of the kit and the latest tricks of the trade to ensure I could produce a streak free tan.
It was a great experience and I got to mix with like-minded people and received plenty of support and technical advice from the Sienna X team who helped me learn how to promote myself. Once I had completed the course, I purchased my kit and started making a name for myself in my local area, offering home tanning sessions.
The best part of being a mobile therapist is that I can continue to work in my full-time job and take on clients during the evenings and weekends. This way I am able to supplement my existing income and find my footing before jumping in full steam ahead. Eventually I would love to go full time with my tanning but right now how I work is perfect for both myself and my clients.
Since starting out 7 years ago, my confidence has increased and I can now turn up at a total strangers house and not stress about it. I go in with my pop-up tent and get to work making them tanned and happy, and leave knowing that I have made someone else feel good about themselves.
Thanks for reading.
