Here is what our students are saying:
Simone was a wonderful instructor. She teaches her students her own custom designed spray tanning technique that leaves every tan looking flawless. This lets us stand out from other technicians. We are also trained on safety precautions. And she doesn’t try to sell her students on any specific product or equipment but teaches us about what’s out there and let’s us decide what we think is best for our business and our clients. After graduation she keeps us updated and current with what’s going on in the airbrush tanning world and any new products that are out on the market.
Working with Simone’s has been amazing. I decided to attend Hollywood Airbrush tanning academy after exhausting all options in attempting to learn airbrush tanning myself. I am a licensed Medical Esthetician/Makeup artist. So I left the kids with a sitter and drove up for the weekend. I’ll start by saying right upon arrival Simone makes you feel as though you have been friends forever. She is humble and understanding. Her teaching techniques are unbelievably through and she leaves plenty of time for q and a. The whole process never felt rushed, I felt extremely confident after day one and when I left after day two I knew I was ready. About a month later I realized I was not practicing as much as I should be since I was taking time off work. So after airbrushing some family members I was left with some questions. I wasn’t fully satisfied. I called Simone and asked if I could come and observe her with a student. She said yes! So I drove up and watched for the day, and she even made time to answer my personal questions and also brought in an extra model for me to tan at the end of the day. Since then she has been amazing with answering questions and being available at all times despite her busy schedule. She does not just walk away after you have paid and graduated. This has been amazing experience. Thank you Simone for all your help, support and incredible ideas!
After making the decision to start a mobile airbrush tanning company, I bought my equipment and some solution. I thought I could teach myself and didn’t need training. After spraying my husband for the first time I realized that I was wrong! I found Hollywood Airbrush Tanning Academy by doing a Google search, and called Simone. Simone explained to me how her course would be beneficial to me without being too pushy which I appreciated. Within the next couple weeks we scheduled times that would work best for everyone. I learned so much from Simone, from business marketing strategies, technique for applying the sunless solution to the various solutions available, and which ones have the best ingredients and work best with each individual’s skin type. There is so much more to this business than I expected and am extremely grateful to Simone for sharing her wealth of information with me. Aside from my formal training classes, Simone has continued to be available to answer questions via email and text. This makes me feel confident knowing that it wasn’t just a couple days of training; I can count on her for support in the future as well.
I would like to say that Simone gave me so much more than just teaching me to apply a flawless spray tan!
“CONFIDENCE” i was so nervous about my technique, solution choices, equipment, pleasing my clients, advertising, etc. simone had suggested that i tan (20) people complimentary before i start charging, therefore i could get the practice and be 100% comfortable. She trained me so thoroughly that i began charging, after spray tanning only 6 people. Today, I could tan with my eyes closed because her technique is so “perfect”!
“CONTINUOUS EDUCATION” Since finishing the training with Simone, I have spoken with her MANY times. She embraces all my questions and concerns and always has time for me. Once you begin tanning people more frequently, a whole new set of questions will arise. I’ve called her with issues regarding skin types, client questions that i don’t have the answer too, different brands of solutions & other additional products, cleaning my equipment, skin reactions and so much more!
“BUSINESS KNOWLEDGE” I wish i could share with you some of her infamous quotes but you will just have to hear them from her. Simone is not just an amazing spray tan technician and teacher, OH NO! She is a very wise entrepreneur, specializing in marketing and business. My business, Glow-N-Go-Mobile Tanning was up and running within the first month due to Simone’s successful ideas and suggestions.
“FUTURE OPPORTUNITIES” Simone posted my information on her site as one of her students and a certified airbrush technician. It doesn’t get better than that, as she is extremely high ranked in all the top search engines. Google her and see for yourself. Simone is currently expanding her businesses in many ways and i have no doubt that she will be recruiting her top pupils all over the country to assist her in future opportunities!
This tanning world has proven to be bigger than i ever expected! Good luck and enjoy the experience. You couldn’t ask for a better teacher!

Simone did an excellent job training me to be comfortable with all aspects of professional spray tanning. She has a comprehensive training manual, and is very good at getting you up and running at a quick pace. I now have a great business in Boulder Colorado, and look forward to more success in the future

I wanted to start my own tanning business and found Simone from a friend and chatted with her about the tanning business. She taught me how the business was created, and how to do the tanning portion and helped me so much that I now have my own tanning business and it is growing every day! Thank you Simone for all you have done for me, and I know when I have a question or need help, I can depend on you to be there to guide me. If anyone that reads this review, needs or would like to start a business in the beauty/tanning industry, call Simone, she is THE BEST THERE IS AND WILL BE THERE WITH YOU ALL THE TIME!
