What is the Difference Between Mystic Tan and Airbrush Tan?

Airbrush Tan and mystic tan are similar and different in many ways. The result you will see from mystic tanning vs a custom airbrush tan is similar. Both will give you the look you are looking for, and both include spray tanning solution. The difference is in the application method. When you are getting an airbrush tan, you have your own airbrush artist assigned to you. With the booth, you don’t have a person there. The Sunless Tanning Booth we use for Mystic Tan is just that, a booth. You don’t have a person airbrushing you, it is all done in the privacy of the sunless booth.

Advantages of the Mystic Tanning Booth


When choosing a tanning method, there are a bunch of different options depending on what you want. Clients choose the Mystic Tan because it’s private and fast. You don’t have to wait for a stylist to be ready. The TLC that you receive with your own airbrush takes a bit more time. With Mystic Tanning, you can be alone in the booth without anyone around. For some clients, this is relaxing.
It can be hard today with all our smart devices and accessibility to find a little bit of time to be alone with our thoughts, why not in the sunless booth?!

Disadvantages of the Mystic Tanning Booth

Though the Mystic Tanning Booth may be more private, which some people prefer, there are disadvantages to having your tan applied this way. When tanning in a booth, the areas that hit by the tanning solution are all hit evenly, aside from parts that are being blocked. This means that to get into the curves of your body, under your boobs, and butt, you will need to move around. When you have a Beach Bum Airbrush Artist assigned, the artist will see and get to those areas. Airbrush tanning solution will hit in the desired areas that need extra attention. The tanning booth doesn’t have the human factor.
