Hollywood Airbrush Tanning Academy Acquires Trademark

Official Press Release:

Hollywood Airbrush Tanning Academy is delighted to announce that they have just received the trademark for the words and logo of the organization from the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO). This training academy was founded in 2011, and has carved a niche for itself by offering hands-on spray tanning training programs that are tailor-made for the newbies looking to make their mark in the industry as spray tanning professionals. 

The probable negative impacts of sun tanning have brought about a radical change in people’s preferences over the last few years. Instead of the traditional form of tanning, more and more tanning enthusiasts are now interested in a relatively new alternative known as airbrush or spray tanning. Right from the time of its inception, Hollywood Airbrush Tanning Academy has played a pioneering role in building awareness about this healthier alternative of tanning throughout the United States. 

Hollywood Airbrush Tanning Academy is the brainchild of Simone Emmons, a highly acclaimed spray tanning expert who is now focused on helping the aspiring beauty professionals master the art of sunless tanning. In her training academy, Simone offers detailed practical training sessions covering all critical aspects of spray tanning. Moreover, after the end of the training, Simone provides valuable branding and marketing guidance to help her students set up their own spray tanning business. Over the last few years, hundreds of students from different parts of the globe have become certified airbrush tanning technicians from the academy.

By registering their trademark with the federal government, Hollywood Airbrush Tanning Academy is letting the airbrush tanning community know that their name and logo is owned and controlled. This will help ensure that no other company will be able to benefit by taking up a similar name and image in the future without first obtaining a license. 

“We are pleased to announce that the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office has granted us exclusive right to use of the words and logo of Hollywood Airbrush Tanning Academy as our trademark in the U.S.,” said Simone Emmons. “This is certainly a great beginning of the year for us and as always, we remain committed to continuing the tradition of changing the lives of our students by offering them the best training in the United States.”

Spray Tan Expert Simone Featured on TV Show Storage Wars

Simone Emmons on Storage Wars

Recently I had a wonderful opportunity to be featured as a spray tanning expert on a recent episode of Starage Wars.  

Storage Wars is an American reality television series on the A&E Network.  Rene and Casey (as featured in the picture with me) are cast members of the show and also the owners of the Bargain Store “Bargain Hunters” in San Diego.  They had found a spray tanning machine kit at one of the auctions and needed a spay tanning expert to tell them how the machine works and how much the spray tanning machine is worth.    

Rene, the owner of the store is originally from Germany and he did not know that I was also from Germany 🙂  It was really fun to shoot with them and provide my knowledge of spray tanning machines during my short stay in San Diego.  

Here is the video clip that was aired on A & E Network on May 24, 2017:


As you can see from the video, it’s not that easy to just start using a spray gun without having prior knowledge on settings and technique.  Learning how to use a spray gun correctly is an art and requires some training.  I’m proud to acknowledge my contribution to have grown this trade, as I have personally already trained over 300 individuals on how to use a spray gun correctly.
