“I loved my experience with Oak City Sunless! Randi came to my home and she was so kind and professional. Not only that but I didn’t have to wait long to schedule her and the process only took about 15 minutes. She explained the process and made me comfortable. The results were just what I was wanting and lasted. It’s definitely worth it and I’ll be calling on her again in the future.”

Jason M. , Downtown Raleigh

“I had my first spray tan with Oak City Sunless and technician Alex made it so very special and comfortable!! She also did a phenomenal job I looked like a goddess! 10/10 recommend!”

Kirsten Gutierrez, Durham

Lindsay was fantastic!!! My tan was even and beautiful. No weirdness around my fingers, toes, and knees. Just perfect 🙂 Also, I’m super pregnant with two toddlers, and my house is a little chaotic at times. Lindsay was professional and quick, but also very kind to my 3yr old daughter who asked a million questions. I greatly appreciated my experience. Thank you!!!”

Jess G., Durham

I had a great experience with Oak City Sunless! Randi made sure I was comfortable during the whole process and told me everything I needed to know. She did a great job and gave me the most natural bronzed tan I couldn’t believe it! I will definitely use them again for all my future tanning needs!”

Kearsten D., Raleigh

Randi of Oak City Sunless was awesome to work with! It was my first time ever getting a spray tan so I was definitely nervous and didn’t want to look too dark or unnatural. She was very reassuring and the tan came out amazing. Will definitely be using her again especially for my wedding!”

Alexa C., Cary

“Everyone on the team is fantastic! Highly recommend and so happy I found a place that comes to your home. They are super flexible and are accommodating to my crazy schedule. My tan is great and feel more confident.”

Allison Z., Raleigh

“Randi is a true professional when it comes to spray tanning. She explains every step plainly and insures understanding of the process and aftercare. She custom blends shades for application. She made me feel incredibly comfortable throughout the experience. I highly recommend her services and will definitely be booking with her again.”

Jenny M., Apex

I can not say enough amazing things about Randi and Oak City Sunless!! She was able to tan my fair skin to the perfect shade. I always receive compliments after my spray tans asking if I’ve been sun bathing. That’s how natural it looks! I even used them for my wedding day and it was wonderful!”

Heather J., Wake Forest

These girls do an amazing job right in the convenience of my home. I’ve been using them about 2 years now to stay bronzed without the sun damage. They have flexibility for appt times and are prompt, quick and neat. My tan looks incredibly natural and lasts a week even with my vigorous daily exercise. Highly recommend! They are the best!”

Jennifer W., Raleigh

“After moving here from NY, I have used other travel spray tan companies before I found Oak City. I am so happy to have found them. I was left with the most flawless even tan! As a Irish women, I am always looking for the best tan and have tried everything. I finally found it! Not only is the tan even and long lasting, I had the pleasure of being tanned by the owner who is so sweet!! I felt so confident for the attendance of an upcoming wedding and can’t wait to use them again!”

Erin W., Knightdale

Oak City Sunless is such a great company!! They come to your home for your spray tan which is so convenient! The owner is very professional, and always tries to accommodate your schedule (which is critical for me since I’m a working mom). Definitely recommend.”

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I make an appointment? Can I book online?

Due to the logistics of mobile tanning and our service area (all of the Triangle and beyond), we do not offer online booking. Please fill out the appointment request form on our website and one of our reps will get back to you asap.

How far in advance should I book for my event?

We recommend scheduling your appointment 2-3 days before an event, 1-2 days prior to a vacation. As far as our schedule, try to book 2-3 weeks in advance. Weekday nights and mornings are the most popular and book up fast. If you know your event date, don’t wait! 

Wait, you spray tan in my home?! Where do you do it?

That’s right! We are an in-home service and bring all necessary equipment and products to keep your home clean and protected. We have a pop up tent that can fit just about anywhere, although kitchens are our favorite! Bathrooms are our least favorite as they naturally have high humidity which causes the spray tan to set slower. We also have an extraction fan to reduce any overspray, towels, wet wipes, disinfectant and more.

How long will the spray tan appointment last?

No more than 30 minutes including spraying and drying. It only takes about 3-5 minutes to spray the skin but the dry time is approximately 10 minutes before you can re-dress. Having a fan set up can decrease dry time as well, especially during humid months.

What should I wear?

The luxury of being in your own home provides you with the ability to wear whatever is most comfortable to you.  Pre and post tan, loose fitting clothing is recommended.  During your session you may undress to your comfort level. If you choose to wear garments such as a bathing suit, underwear, etc, the fabric will not be damaged by the solution and will come clean easily in the laundry. 

How long will my spray tan last?

With proper pre and post care, your spray tan will last 1-2 weeks. Everyone’s skin and lifestyles are different so there is variation due to your natural chemisty and enviromental factors. The healthier and more hydrated your skin is, the longer your tan will last. 

What forms of payment do you accept?

We accept all major credit/debit cards, Venmo or cash.

Pre-Tan Tips

Shower, shave and exfoliate no less than 3 hours before our arrival. Please try not to shower right before we get there. This will prevent the tan from setting and developing fully. Avoid Dove & Aveeno products as hey leave a film on the skin and contain PH balancers that react with spray tan solution resulting in a greenish hue. While it diminishes over time and washes away after the first shower, it’s best to avoid. 

Apply lotion no less than 3 hours prior to your sunless tanning appointment. If you apply lotion and it has not fully absorbed into your skin, it acts like a barrier to the sunless tanning solution. To get the best results, your skin must be clean and dry to absorb the solution evenly and effectively. 

Ideally if your appointment is in the evening, prepping in the morning is best. If your appointment is in the morning, the night before is best. Afternoon appointments use your best judgement.     

Schedule other beauty appointments BEFORE your sunless tanning appointment. Waxing: 2-3 days prior, Facials (standard): 1-2 days, Chemical Peels, Microdermabrasion & Dermaplaning 2+ weeks prior, Mani & Pedi: 1+ day prior, Hair & Lashes: 1+ day prior (ok for same day just before, not after). 

Post-Tan Tips

  • Wear loose fitting, dark clothing after your session.
  • Remain dry for a minimum of 8 hours for regular solution & 1-4 hours with rapid, depending on desired darkness level.
  • Take short, warm showers using mild, unscented soap. While shaving use light touch.
  • Pat skin dry and moisturize with a mild lotion or tan extender. Hydrated skin accepts color more evenly. It is always best to apply lotion daily as a general skin care regimen.
  • Apply perfume to clothes and hair, avoiding skin contact.
