Hollywood Airbrush Tanning Academy http://hollywoodairbrushtanningacademy.com Learn the Art & Business of Airbrush Tanning Thu, 21 Jul 2016 03:14:36 +0000 en-US hourly 1 https://wordpress.org/?v=4.4.3 Airbrush Tanning Scam Alert http://hollywoodairbrushtanningacademy.com/airbrush-tanning-scam-alert/ http://hollywoodairbrushtanningacademy.com/airbrush-tanning-scam-alert/#respond Tue, 28 Jun 2016 17:33:15 +0000 http://hollywoodairbrushtanningacademy.com/?p=2635 scam_alertToday I wanted to write about an airbrush tanning scam that’s been going around and I am hoping to make everyone else in our airbrush tanning industry aware of this, hoping to stop those scammers.  Many of my previous students have been contacted by these scammers and we all discussed this in our private Facebook group.  I know that not everyone is always online so I am hoping it will bring additional awareness here through the website.

The scam starts out by someone texting you and asking if you do Bodybuilder spray tanning or Fitness competition tanning. In many cases it was with the name of “Jennifer Harbert”.  This picture here to the left, indicates the text message I received myself from the phone number 510-948-1118 and many of my other students reported receiving this same message but from a different phone number.  It appears that they get our contact information from Yelp.  I know this because one of my student told me that she just got registered on Yelp a few days prior to receiving this message.  Several of my previous students have reported this, so it appears it’s really going around all over.  Here is a snap shot of the message from one of my previous student:

What the scammer usually hope for is that you charge a credit card for an extreme large amount.  They will usually give you a stolen credit card and ask you to charge a bit more and then refund you the extra additional money that you charged in cash.  Then later on, after the credit card company finds out that it was a fraudulent charge, the credit card company will refund the money and take it away from you and then you will be responsible for paying everything back.  This has been going on in many different industries.  One of my previous student is also a nail technician and she reported that this was also in the nail industry.  So I am assuming that this is probably going on in the whole salon industry.  I hope that nobody has fallen for this.  So far I have not heard of any horror stories but this is why I wanted to write about it and hoping to alert everyone.

Here are also 2 more pictures of another previous student who was texting along just to get more information from the scammer and so that we could share more with everyone:

I hope that nobody falls for this and that we can put an end to this scam. Anyone who wishes to provide more or additional information to this may add below this blog post.

Showcasing Spray Tan Room Setup At Home http://hollywoodairbrushtanningacademy.com/showcasing-spray-tan-room-setup-at-home/ http://hollywoodairbrushtanningacademy.com/showcasing-spray-tan-room-setup-at-home/#respond Sat, 19 Mar 2016 09:29:53 +0000 http://hollywoodairbrushtanningacademy.com/?p=2512  

I recently had 2 students who shared their spray tan room set up with me.  Of course I was very impressed and felt that I had to share this here with everyone.

One recent student is Angela and she is from the San Luis Obispo area.  She only finished her hands-on training 3 weeks ago and was so motivated to get everything up and running.  Well here you can see the results of just one of our students.  With our hands-on training, detailed checklist and  lot’s of videos, she was able to quickly set up her own spray tan business at her home.  Here are some of the pictures from her room at home:

 

 

And here is another one of our previous student that set up her room within her house.  It also looks so beautiful and I am sure that her clients feel very comfortable when coming for spray tanning.

I hope this will inspire more people and also give you an idea of how others set up their own spray room within their house:

Simone Emmons at LA Talk Radio Station

Last week I was invited to a radio show “Sam in the morning with Kelsey” and I had an opportunity to share a little bit about me and my airbrush tanning training program.  I met Sam when I was recently interviewed by another host Melissa, who is also one of our models.  Melissa has a weekly radio show and she invited me and another nearby Beauty salon to talk about our beauty industry a little bit.  You can click here to listen to that radio interview.

If you want to get to know me a little bit and find out where I am from and how I got to America and also started the idea about my airbrush tanning program, you can listen to the radio show by clicking on the video below.  I am also doing another follow up interview with the hosts Sam and Kelsey as I am inviting them to come by to me and get an airbrush tan and then we will make another show so they can talk about their experience with their first ever airbrush tan.  I love the reaction of people who have never had a spray tan so I am really looking forward to tanning them. Please stay tuned for a follow up interview soon.

Tammy Becker – Spray Tan Trainer East Coast

Last year, we made an announcement that we now have another airbrush tanning training location in Connecticut.  Our trainer Tammy is leading that location and this might be better for those students living on the East Coast.

Tammy was trained in Los Angeles several years ago before she decided to move away to Connecticut and lead her own Hollywood Airbrush Tanning Academy.  With the skills she learned at the academy, she was able to get her own local airbrush tanning business up and running quickly and now also leads the training academy on the East Coast.  Students are invited to visit her airbrush tanning business and learn from her.

She already trained someone from nearby Rhode Island and this weekend she is busy training a student from New York.

For those of you who can not travel, we also have the online spray tanning training program available at www.AirbrushTanningCertificationClasses.com.  This is a private membership site for students and we documented everything on how to start your own airbrush tanning business with videos.  There is literally a video available for everything on how to use the gun to spray tanning technique, how to prepare clients based on FDA recommendations to how to do a mobile spray tan and lot’s of videos on marketing/website so you can get clients immediately.  We also educate you on all the different spray tanning machines and solutions available on the market and we do not sell you any products but we share with you where you can buy everything directly at the best prices. The online airbrush tanning training is a combination between you doing the self paced lessons on your own and also meet with a trainer online for several hours.  All you need is high speed Internet connection.

There are other organizations out there that charge you between $25,000 to $65,000 for setting up a Franchise business but with our training program you will have everything just like a Franchise, except you can use your own business name.  We have no requirements and you can start your own spray tanning business without having to pay any monthly royalty payments.  And when you are ready, in the future you can become a spray tan trainer with the Hollywood Airbrush Tanning Academy and teach within your own city.

You can sign up to our list and get information on how much money you need to start your own airbrush tanning business.  We also email you more videos and information on our spray tanning training program.

How Vitiligo Took My Confidence & Airbrush Tanning Gave It Back – Amanda’s Story http://hollywoodairbrushtanningacademy.com/how-vitiligo-took-my-confidence-airbrush-tanning-gave-it-back-amandas-story/ http://hollywoodairbrushtanningacademy.com/how-vitiligo-took-my-confidence-airbrush-tanning-gave-it-back-amandas-story/#respond Tue, 30 Jun 2015 01:49:04 +0000 http://hollywoodairbrushtanningacademy.com/?p=2230  

Today I wanted to share our video on Amanda who has Vitiligo.  Amanda models for our spray tanning classes frequently.  This video was created by our intern Carlos (Charlie) who wanted to learn all phases on how to make and edit videos.  This video was his final project before he graduated.  We are really proud of him and he did a wonderful job with capturing Amanda’s story on how she had to deal with Vitiligo and also how airbrush tanning gave her back her confidence.

Because of her unique skin condition, we use Amanda frequently in our spray tanning training classes as we want to teach all our students on how to spray tan individuals with Vitiligo.  Vitiligo is a chronic skin condition characterized by portions of the skin losing their pigment. It occurs when skin pigment cells die or are unable to function.   The cause of Vitiligo is unknown. Amanda had  to deal with this skin condition for so many years.  Here are some pictures of Amanda and you can see how obvious her Vitiligo showed up on her skin:

Luckily, Amanda has done a lot of research and she decided to do a treatment, which she shares in the video. Please take about 9 minutes to watch her story:

Watch this video...

And here are the pictures we took on Amanda on how she looks today before getting a spray tan and 10 minutes after the spray tan and then the following day, after she showers off the solution:

I hope that Amanda’s story might help some others who have Vitiligo and we included the contacts to the doctor as well as to the National Vitiligo Association.  We also have several students who have Vitiligo and they wanted to learn airbrush tanning so they could spray tan themselves.  We can proudly say that many of our students spray tan themselves frequently.

How To Remove A Leftover Spray Tan http://hollywoodairbrushtanningacademy.com/how-to-remove-a-leftover-spray-tan/ http://hollywoodairbrushtanningacademy.com/how-to-remove-a-leftover-spray-tan/#respond Sun, 28 Jun 2015 06:39:35 +0000 http://hollywoodairbrushtanningacademy.com/?p=2217 In this blog post I wanted to share a video with everyone on how to remove a leftover spray tan.  This is a question that comes up so many times so I decided to do a video on it.  Usually spray tans look really great for the first 4-5 days until they start fading and sometimes the fading can look very blotchy.  Blotchy spray tans come for many different reasons and I leave this for another video in the near future.  Today I just hope to help my fellow airbrush tanning technicians and previous students of mine and also some of my clients to give a few suggestions on removing that last leftover spray tan before coming to get a new spray tan.

Which Is The Busiest Season, Days & Times For Airbrush Tanning Technicians http://hollywoodairbrushtanningacademy.com/which-is-the-busiest-season-days-times-for-airbrush-tanning-technicians/ http://hollywoodairbrushtanningacademy.com/which-is-the-busiest-season-days-times-for-airbrush-tanning-technicians/#respond Thu, 14 May 2015 00:33:02 +0000 http://hollywoodairbrushtanningacademy.com/?p=2158  

I know that there are many companies out there making you believe that we as airbrush tanners are always busy throughout the year, however the truth is we are not always busy throughout the year.  I find that many companies provide misleading information by making you believe that we have lot’s of spray tans on a daily basis.  Even though our industry is very popular and growing every year, I want to share with everyone what you can really expect in our industry.

I am located in Los Angeles so I am assuming that we are much more busier here then in any other city or state because we have the movie industry here and also nice weather year round.  Instead of writing a blog post, I made a quick video describing which is our busiest season, days and times for airbrush tanners.  Watch the quick video below to find out.

North Carolina Tanning Salons Should Prepare by Offering Airbrush Tanning To Teens http://hollywoodairbrushtanningacademy.com/north-carolina-tanning-salons-should-prepare-by-offering-airbrush-tanning-to-teens/ http://hollywoodairbrushtanningacademy.com/north-carolina-tanning-salons-should-prepare-by-offering-airbrush-tanning-to-teens/#respond Tue, 05 May 2015 07:18:50 +0000 http://hollywoodairbrushtanningacademy.com/?p=2164  

Recently I read again that North Carolina might follow the many other states and might ban teens under 18 from using tanning beds.  This is the the second time in a little over two years, that the North Carolina state House has overwhelmingly approved a proposal to ban minors from using indoor tanning beds. The introduction of the tanning bed legislation comes on the heels of the U. S. Surgeon General’s national “Call to Action” on skin cancer last year. You can read more at this link by clicking here.

The House Bill was named “Jim Fulghum Teen Skin Cancer Prevention Act” in honor of Jim Fulghum who passed away last year, and memoralizes the former Republican state representative and neurosurgeon who was an early and strong supporter and sponsor of the tanning bed legislation.

With this law in motion, it means a possible decrease of business for tanning salon owners but it could also be the rise of a lucrative airbrush tanning business. Tanning salons should learn airbrush tanning as this is another opportunity for salon owners to think ahead and prepare so that they can offer a healthier alternative to teens and spray tan them instead of offering tanning beds.

The Hollywood Airbrush Tanning Academy can help in this transition by offering airbrush tanning training to tanning salon owners.  Please feel free to check out our extensive training program by visiting www.1DaySprayTanTraining.com or feel free to call 818-674-9621.
