about the founder


After years of working in the corporate world, I decided to embark on a new journey - becoming a stay-at-home mom! During this time I started doing airbrush tanning because, to be honest, I thought it would be a great excuse for me to always be tan, and for me to be able to tan my friends and family! Not long after I started, people kept asking me where I went on vacation, and commenting that I was looking "rested" and "glowing" - it was then that I knew I had to share the amazing confidence-boosting power of spray tanning with as many people as possible! That is how Shades was born. 

Not long after I started Shades I was introduced to Infinity Sun Products, and was hooked - they produce a superior organic airbrush tanning product that is used by celebrities and professionals all over the world. 

I love the sun and the way it makes me feel and look - but I also know that spending hours in the sun isn't the greatest for my skin (skin caner and wrinkles? No thank you!). Airbrush tanning is a wonderful, safe way to get that sunkissed glow that we all love, without worrying about harmful rays, wrinkles and sunburns. 

So whether you are prepping for an event, getting ready for a vacation, or just need a little pick-me-up, I guarantee that airbrush tanning is right for you!

And the best part? You NEVER have to worry about that fake orange-tan look. My airbrush tans are fully customizable, and we will match you with a shade that looks as natural, and as dark or light, as you want!

Looking forward to meeting you and making you feel, and look, GREAT!

XO - Lori

faq: appointment prep and aftercare



HOw do I prep for my spray tan?

Hair removal (shaving, waxing) should be done before your airbrush tan, and it's always a good idea to exfoliate! It's always best to come to your appointment with no lotion on your skin, and no makeup on (if you want your face sprayed).

I have a mani/pedi appointment - should I do that before or after my spray tan?

Mani/pedi's should be done BEFORE your airbrush tan.

What do I wear to, and during, my appointment? 

Wear dark, loose-fitting clothes to put on immediately after your airbrush tan. As for what to wear while getting sprayed - that's totally up to you! Some people prefer to wear absolutely nothing, while others prefer to wear their underwear or a bathing suit - whatever makes you more comfortable!

How long do I have to wait to shower?

Wait 6-8 hours after your airbrush tan to shower, and avoid any activities that will make you sweat. 

How long will my spray tan last? 

7-10 days depending on activities - sweating, showering, hot tubs, exfoliating, etc. You can prolong your tan by moisturizing daily (we suggest our Infinity Sun Hydrating lotion). Make sure to exfoliate your tan off thoroughly before coming in for your next session. 

How often should I spray tan? 

For the most consistent color, we recommend coming in once per week.

Lori is THE best & the sweetest! She’s tanned me for a few pageants and each time I always get complimented on how amazing my skin looks on and off stage! I’m naturally super pale so the first time I was waiting to get sprayed I thought I would look orange.... nope just fabulous!!
100% recommend Lori to anyone !
— Erin O. (Santee)
I used Lori to give me a natural glow (my skin is pretty fair) for our Marine Corps ball. I specifically asked her for something really subtle, she did exactly what I asked and my skin had a nice natural glow for our ball. She was kind and professional!
— El H. (Oceanside)
Lori and Katie are great! They are professional, friendly, and they are one of the best Airbrush Spray Tan providers in the area. I have been going to Shades for all of my spray tanning needs for about a year now, and the results have always been great. They are super responsive and are always so nice to me. I highly recommend Shades!
— Kathy D. (San Marcos)
Anytime I have to get ready for a red carpet...I never feel fully put together until I get my “red carpet glow” by Lori. She does such an amazing job, and s a pleasure to work with to boot. You’re in good hands with this one!
— Sarah Gore/TV host of New York Live and Open House
I have left some spray tans looking like Ross from friends! Not this place. It is the most natural looking glow ever! I was shopping Saturday and the sales gal was like Wow your skin is so beautiful, I winked and said I paid for it. Lori gives you a natural tan in whatever shade you would like from sun kissed to a week in Hawaii tan!
— - Donna H. (San Diego)
I’ve been seeing Lori for a couple years now and will not go anywwhere else! My first concern when I got sprayed was looking orange. I never got a spray tan before so I was a bit nervous. I never ever look orange and always look like a bronzed goddess!! Her product is amazing and Lori is so fun! She is conversational, welcoming, and makes you feel so comfortable!
— Rachel R. (San Marcos)
