My name is Amy Taylor and I am the proud owner of NW GLW. Being a fair redhead with a family history of Skin Cancer, I knew that the sun and I would never have a good relationship. I always feel better with a little GLW, so the search for a spray tan with a non Cheeto look ensued. During a business trip to Bellingham, Washington, I received a spray tan by an amazing mentor of mine. It was there that the love for the spray tanning industry began. I took many courses on achieving and delivering the best spray tan. After spray tanning for 6 years, I was presented the opportunity to open NW GLW. It is important to me to not only use the best products in the industry, but to also educate clients on proper care and protection for their skin. I pride myself on giving a natural looking tan that gives you the outer GLW to your inner GLW.
My name is Britani Campanoli and I am NW GLW lash artist and sugarist. Having spent the past decade as a personal trainer, nutrition coach, and NPC figure competitor I know the importance of self-confidence! I take great joy in helping my clients achieve their health goals but most importantly to gain the utmost confidence in themselves. I am excited to work with NW GLW to continue to help make an impact on empowering people from the inside out. Nothing can dim the light that shines from within, I look forward to helping you GLW.

PRE Tan Instructions:
All Waxing and sugaring must be done at least 24 hours prior to your airbrush spray tan.
Exfoliate and shave the day before your spray airbrush spray tan. Use a non-oil based scrub. We recommend the NW GLW Charcoal scrub to be used prior to your spray tan.
Do Not use any oils prior to your airbrush spray tan, if you use oils, we are unable to guarantee your tan. When oils are used, the solution will bead up on the skin and we can see it right away.
Do NOT use any DOVE soaps, scrubs, body wash or bar soap. Do not use any bar soap of any kind prior to your airbrush Spray tan. Using bar soap leaves a film on the skin which will then act as a barrier and the solution will not adhere to the skin.
Deodorant is not recommended to wear prior to your spray tan. Wipes will be provided should you have deodorant on. It isn’t the biggest issue if you do have deodorant on, it could turn green but would wash away after your first wash.
Tan lines are optional. Disposable panties are provided to you should you wish to wear them. Once sprayed, your tan lines can not be filled or blended should you change your mind. Men must wear boxers or briefs to tan. Should you choose to wear a bathing suit or bra’s and panties during your airbrush spray tan, you will get solution on it, it will wash off. In the instance that it does not, NW GLW is not responsible for any stain or damage to your apparel you wear during your session.
* Be mindful of what you will be wearing while you have your airbrush spray tan so all exposed parts are tanned.
You will be guided through a series of quick poses during your spray tan process. Once sprayed, you will be asked to check your tan and color for approval prior to the drying process. Your session takes about 20 minutes from start to finish.
AFTER Care Instructions:
You will be sprayed with a bronzing solutions. Once sprayed, your color will darken during the processing time.
Allow 8-12 hours for your tan to process before showering. This allows the tan to develop.
Rinse with Luke warm water during your first shower. (Hot water will wash your tan off faster) You will see color rinse off. This is the cosmetic bronzer that you see rinsing.
Refrain from using any exfoliants, scrubs, loofas, washcloths on your fresh tan. They act as exfoliants and will prematurely remove your tan.
Pat dry after your shower/rinsing. Running will exfoliate your tan.
MOISTURIZE, MOISTURIZE, MOISTURIZE. We can not stress this enough. The more you moisturize the longer your tan will last. NW GLW offers moisturizers and tan extender moisturizers for purchase.
Refrain from using spray sunscreens as well as sunscreens with oil in them as they will start to eat away at your tan. Sunscreens containing Zinc are the best sunscreens to protect your skin and your tan. *Your spray tan is not a Sunscreen and does not act as a barrier against the sun*
When moisturized efficiently, your tan should naturally and gradually wear off. Should you need additional help saying goodbye to your airbrush spray tan, NW GLW offers charcoal scrubs and soaps that will gently exfoliate your skin, remove your remainder spray tan and prep your skin for your next spray tan.
PRODUCTS TO AVOID:
Heavy fragrances / high in alcohol content can cause blotchiness if sprayed excessively.
Q: HOW DOES AIRBRUSH SPRAY-TANNING WORK?
A: NW GLW uses a sunless tanning solution containing DHA, a custom blended for your skin tone and preference. DHA (dihydroxyacetone) is a sugar based derivative that has been approved by the FDA for over 30 years. It reacts with the outer layers of your skin to create a natural looking tan in as little as 8-12 hours. The immediate color your see, is called a cosmetic bronzer. It will mimic the color you will see once the tan is done processing. Do not panic when you see your color rinse off after your initial rinse. This is only the bronzing agent you see and your tan will still be intact.
Q: HOW LONG DOES THE AIRBRUSH SPRAY TAN TAKE?
A: Due to the prestige equipment and solution we use and our expertise, a full tan from start to finish can be accomplished in 20 minutes.
Q: WILL I LOOK LIKE THE COLOR OF A CHEETO?
A: We pride ourselves on tanning to your natural GLW. The risk of turning orange is almost non-existent. This happens when too much solution at a too high concentration of DHA is applied, which is not our Jam.
Q: WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?
A: You can wear as little or as much as you would like. We provide disposable thongs, hairnets and sticky feet. Yes, we see naked people, but we promise thats not what we see when tanning you. We are looking at every spray of the application on your skin to ensure that you are completely tanned without streaks, runs, blotches or too much solution. You are in great hands at NW GLW
Q: HOW LONG WILL MY CUSTOM NW GLW LAST?
A: A custom spray tan should last anywhere between 5-12 days. This all depends on you once you leave the studio. Proper skincare before and after your spray tan will directly affect your spray tan. Remember to always follow the preparation and post care instructions. Extender products are available for purchase to extend the length of your tan.
* certain medications and monthly cycles can inhibit your tans longevity. This is a case by case basis.
Q: I HAVE A SPECIAL OCCASION, WHEN SHOULD I TAN ?
A: We recommend tanning a day or two prior to your special event. Many prefer to tan in the evening so they are able to sleep in their tan and not worry about day to day activities affecting their tan. We are a by appointment only studio and book up fast. While we try our best to accommodate every guest, it is best to pre-schedule your tans.
Q: IS IT SAFE TO SPRAY TAN WHILE PREGNANT?
A: Spray tanning has been deemed safe by the March of Dimes and it is much safer than tanning alternatives. While we have tanned many Moms to be and nursing Moms, we can not recommend what’s best for you and your baby. We would ask that if you have concerns, please contact your primary physician.
