If you do not receive a confirmation email from our booking system @genbook immediately after you've booked the appointment online, your appointment may not have gone through.
Text us for assistance.
Also, double-check your confirmation email to ensure you booked the correct location, date and time.
The best time to get sprayed before any event is 2-3 days prior.
If you are at all late for your scheduled appointment time, we may or may not be able to provide you service based on our schedule following your appointment time.
PLEASE CALL OR TEXT if you know you are going to be late so that we can make every effort to work with you to reschedule, if necessary.
Please understand that many times our appointments are scheduled back-to-back and your tardiness effects everyone following you. We will not put ourselves behind schedule in order to accommodate any client and you may be charged a late cancellation fee, as well.
Any cancellation less than 24 hours in advance of appointment time will be charged 100% of the scheduled service price.
Hush Tan requires a credit card to hold all appointments. Your card information is securely stored with Square and is ONLY charged in the event of a late cancel or no show.
You may cancel online via your confirmation email or by contacting the appropriate studio location anytime day or night.

24 - 48 Hours Prior Exfoliate!! Exfoliation is the most important step to a successful airbrush tan. Exfoliate your skin all over with a washcloth or exfoliating glove. Don’t forget your elbows, ankles, neck and underarms! We highly recommend our HUSH Exfoliating Mitt for the absolute best and most even exfoliation pre-tan. Mitts may be purchased from either HUSH location or online here.
Shave, wax or remove any unwanted body hair. Do not use any oil-based products. Oils can leave a film on your skin that can block the even absorption of the sunless tanning solution.
Drink lots of water. Keeping your skin hydrated from the inside out will help you retain color longer and will promote more even fading of your sunless tan.
Be prepared! Pack or wear dark, loose fitting clothing. No denim, tights or clothes that rub.
Prepare for rain. We live in the Pacific NW. Ensure you will be covered from head to toe as even a drop of water can ruin your new glow.
Rinse to remove any sweat or body product residues. We do not recommend washing your hair or body with any products prior to your session as there is always a chance they could leave a barrier on your skin. Dove, Dial, Ivory or any “moisturizing” soaps or body washes are a definite no-no the day of your sunless session!
No lotions, oils, perfumes or body sprays at least eight hours prior. (If tanning in the evening, you may apply lotion in the morning.)
Ladies: Pack or wear dark colored undergarments or swimsuits. You may undress to your comfort level. Please note: if you are tanning for an occasion where you would prefer not to have a tan line, you may tan topless. If you do not feel comfortable going topless, we have pasties available for purchase.
Men: Wear dark boxers or briefs. Men MUST wear some sort of undergarment. No exceptions.
Continue wearing your dark, loose fitting clothing for at least six to eight hours while your tan develops.
Do not get wet for at least eight hours with a regular solution. This includes showers, rain drops, dog licks, exercise, swimming, saunas or any other activities that may get your skin wet or cause you to sweat. Also, do not wear tight fitting shoes, bras or sports bras during this time.
Absolutely NO soap. A really slow rinse with luke-warm water is best. Only use your hands (no loofahs or exfoliants) to remove the bronzer, and focus your attention to your legs, behind your arms, and creases. The #1 cause for streaks is that the bronzer was not rinsed off properly and can stain the skin for a few days.
Pat yourself dry with a towel post-shower. Do not rub!
If you visibly see streaks, pop back in the shower and do another rinse. If that doesn’t help, rubbing alcohol on a cotton swab will help remove the streak. Keep in mind that it will also remove the tan in the area you apply it to and you will need to respray if that happens.
Keep your skin hydrated by drinking plenty of water and by using natural products. No mineral oil, alpha hydroxy acids, petroleum, alcohol or exfoliating ingredients as they will strip your skin and fade your tan within a few days. To protect your spray tanning investment, we offer high-quality, naturally-based and paraben-free moisturizers and tan extenders in both travel and full sizes. Moisturizing twice daily will give you the best results.
Use sunscreen. Spray tanning does not in any way protect your skin from UV rays.
When swimming, limit your time in the water to 10 to 15 minute increments, if possible. Pat or air dry after. Water is a natural exfoliant. Soaking for long periods of time will dramatically fade your tan.
Use a waterproof sunscreen to help protect your skin from harsh pool chemicals and salt water on vacations. Use of a tan extender or our "hush vaca' glow pack" is highly recommended to help keep your color through your trip.
