My name is Tatiana, but my friends and family call me Tutta. I love writing articles that bring a little creativity to everyday life.
Let’s face it, not all of us have the luxury of living in Florida and having that natural tan year-round, but we have the next best thing: the tanning salon!
Not only have I been a customer of numerous tanning salons, but I even worked at one. I've learned so much great information about tanning, including the best tanning lotions, to knowing how much tan time is too much!
Getting to my point. I know a lot about tanning, and about tanning salons, and even a thing or two about the naming styles tanning salons use.
Names for tanning salons are usually clever, but we’ll get into this later! First, you'll need to learn how to start a tanning salon to see if it's the right career path for you!
Finding the Right Name
Having a catchy name for a tanning salon is key. There are many tanning salons around, and having that perfect name can make all the difference for a consumer looking for a tanning salon. Here are a few tips to kick off the brainstorming:
- Sound beachy: Giving your tanning salon a name that makes it sound like a tropical paradise can really draw a crowd! Just be sure the interior decorating lives up to this name!
- Use puns: There are plenty of puns to be made in tanning salon names, and using one can give your name some edge that will be easily remembered by potential customers!
- Use your name: You are a business owner, be proud! Not many people can accomplish that in their lifetime.
- Type of tanning: If you plan on having one specific kind of tanning at your salon, for example, airbrush or tanning beds, then make this clear in your name. This will make it so that those who are looking for your kind of tanning salon can find you easier! Sounds like cha-ching to me!
- Rhyme: Having a good business name is all about how catchy it is. Rhymes are just that, catchy! Don’t be afraid to try it out, you might just come up with the name.
One thing’s for sure, if you have your very own tanning salon, you’ll never have to be pasty again!

Starting a Tanning Business
If you are all about that bronze, then perhaps opening a tanning salon is for you! But wait! Before you can just open your doors, there’s a long list of things to do!
Firstly, if you have savings, great! If not, you will want to begin by looking into loans to fund your business. Tanning salons can be expensive, especially depending on if you plan on having multiple tanning booths or just hiring spray technicians. Determine what kind of salon you want; do you wish to operate a spray tanning salon, tanning bed salon, or both?
During this time, it is also important to begin seeking out suppliers for all tanning essentials you will need, from tanning booths to tanning lotion. Be sure to ask about wholesale pricing as you want to be able to charge a fair amount on your products and still make some profit.
Once you’re certain about your source of funding, then it’s time to move on to finding an ideal location. For tanning salons, it’s good to be near modeling and photo studios, hair salons, nail salons, and shopping malls. These are the areas that will net you the most business, and that’s very important!
While looking for a location, begin seeking out the appropriate licensing and permits. Contact your state and county/city to find out the requirements. You’ll need to register your tanning salon name so that you can legally operate! Registering with the state and again locally with your county or city is usually required in order to lawfully do business and is for tax purposes. Also, check with the local health department and see if you are required to have any kind of special permissions through them.

You are allowed to say or use any name in an article. In fact someone can even use your name in comparison if they want. Learn the trademark laws and quit being such ass.

These are great! I'm trying to rename my sunless tanning business with a "boutique" feel / name and less tanning salon like. Any suggestions or ideas are appreciated! Thank you!
