How to determine your client’s skin tone?

There are three classifications for undertones: warm, cool, and neutral. If you have warm undertones, your skin will lean peachy, yellow, or golden. If you have cool undertones, your skin will lean pink, red, or blue.

There are 9 solutions in the Perfect Glow Sunless™ line.
Here you will find basic descriptions and please take the time to review

Please also review the product description for each product on the store as it will further
explain the color and bronzing.

  • 10%

Who should you use it on?

Anyone that needs a dark tan for a photo shoot or fitness competition.

Can you use this on clients that want to be super dark for an every day tan?

You would have to test it out. Because it is a competition formula most of the darkness is coming from the heavy bronzers & will wash away when your client takes a shower. This is only a 10% dha. So you can try to use DHA drops to increase the DHA% or do multiple layers. If it is for a for a photo shoot you can spray your client and do not have them rinse off if that is an option.

Different Skin Types Cheatsheet

SKIN TYPE I

Extremely fair tones. Will either have a pink/red undertone or very white cool tone. This skin tone can never tan in the sun and will always burn and peel. Be very careful & cautious with these clients if it is your first time spraying them. They can turn unnatural very easily with too high of a %. Better to start lighter and then gradually increase color with future sessions.

Recommended Solutions

Cocoa Beach 8%, Brown 8% and Brown Rapid (If they are porcelain white you might even have to do less solution or close the gun to lessen it to a 6%)

Cocktail 8%

Cocoa Rapid, Brown Rapid or Rapid Cocktail- Leave on 1-1.5 hours to start depending on what the client wants. If they are very nervous just have them rinse off in 1 hour. Remember a good rule of thumb is for the client to be happy with the color. You can always go darker the next time rather than risk turning them unnatural!

SKIN TYPE II

Pale tone that easily burns.Tans with difficulty and takes a long time to develop a base tan.

Recommended Solutions

Cocoa Beach 8%, Brown 8% and Brown Rapid (Best on very pink/red/cool undertones)

Dark Chocolate 8% ( On yellow/warm undertones or those that want a browner color)

Cocktail 8% ( Universal for all skin tones and for those that want a color that’s still golden but with a touch of brown.)

Cocoa Rapid, Brown Rapid or Rapid Cocktail- have client leave on 1 hour for light , 2 hours for medium (3 hours max only if you have sprayed them before and 2 hours did not look unnatural)

SKIN TYPE III

This is the most common skin type. Can still burn but for the most part tans very easily.

Recommended Solutions

Cocoa Beach 8% or 10%
(If they need to go darker than 10% I recommend starting out with 75/25 ratio of 10 & 12% but be cautious)

Cocktail blend 8% or 10%,
Brown 8% and Brown Rapid

Dark Chocolate 8% or 10% or 12% for darkest (Best on olive/darker skin tones.
If skin tone is very pink I suggest sticking with the Cocoa Beach)

Dark Chocolate 8% or 10% or 12% for darkest (Best on olive/darker skin tones.
If skin tone is very pink I suggest sticking with the Cocoa Beach)

Rapid, Cocoa Rapid, Brown Rapid or Rapid Cocktail – 1 hour light, 2 hours medium, 3 hours dark
( if this is your first time spraying the client I do not recommend 4 hours until you know that
3 hours did not look unnatural.)

SKIN TYPE IV, V

Tans very easily, rarely burns or never burns Skin can be dark brown / olive / Mediterranean / African American.

Recommended Solutions

Any DHA percentage of Cocoa Beach, Dark Chocolate, Brown and Brown Rapid or the Cocktail blend depending on the level of tan they are looking to achieve

In the rapids : Rapid,Cocoa rapid, Brown Rapid or Rapid Cocktail for up to 4 hours for maximum darkness

**If you have a client with yellow /warm undertones I always recommend using the Violet based Rapid or Dark Chocolate violet based solution.

If your client has a lot of pink/red/cool undertones I always recommend using the Cocoa Rapid, Brown and Brown Rapid or Cocoa Beach solution.
