Yes…. if you are

  • Looking for a quick add-on profitable non-invasive beauty treatment
  • New to spray tanning
  • Nervous and lacking confidence after training elsewhere
  • Using far too much solution (e.g. your cubicle, client and work station are wet)

Then this course is right for you, because:

  • You will use less solution, meaning more profit from your Tan Solution purchases
  • Your workspace will be easier to keep clean and tidy
  • Your client will have a natural looking tan (no fake tan signs)
  • Most importantly your client is more likely to book with you again and refer you

Spray tanning is one of the most profitable treatments in the industry

20-minute booking (spraying only takes 5 mins)
18-45 (area dependant), that lasts 5-7 days.

This is a really popular course - whether you are a fully trained beauty therapist or new to the industry, or would like to be an extra-preneur (someone who tops up their salary) or mum-preneur (it’s great for new and school-age busy Mums who would like to earn their own money and have more grown up time).

There are approximately 6 trainees per course.

You will have plenty of time to practise your routine on each other, gain top tips and ask the questions that will ensure you are well-equipped to achieve regular returning clients that refer you too. There will be plenty of time to network with each other too - many find they stay in touch long after the course.

Yes, everyone needs to purchase their kit prior to the course and there are different priced kits to suit your budget. The kit packages are discounted, and they include training, so they are a great way for you to save money.

If you would like help setting up your gun, remember to bring it along to the training day.

There are also payment plans for kits, talk to a friendly member of our team today.

Simply follow the tips below, and we will supply everything else you need

  • Come with exfoliated skin that has been moisturised the night before (you use each other as models)
  • Wear your therapist uniform or loose-fitting black top and trousers
  • Wear your hair tied back and remove any make-up (or bring water-based make-up remover, if you prefer to come with make-up on)
  • If you wear contact lenses you may wish to bring along glasses.
  • Bring a packed lunch and a cold drink.
  • Tea and coffee will be provided for you.

No need, trainees will use each other as models.

The course will run with 2 or more (usually 6) people booked on and you can book 24 hours before the start date if you wish.

If you are unable to be a model for medical reasons, the trainer may be able to provide a model for you. We will require at least 7 days’ notice to organise this.

For those of you who may feel a little shy, feel free to wear a bikini or swimsuit and offer to spray first - you will soon feel relaxed and confident to be sprayed by your team colleague.

With Spray Tanning you can be in profit in as little as a few months or less.

Most treatments or businesses take a while to recoup your investment, sometimes even a year or more… but with spray tanning you can profit in just a few weeks, depending on how much focus and drive you give it. We have ready-made leaflets for you to use for promotion, along with Facebook posts, loyalty cards and posters to give you a head start.

This can often be the case! Sienna X is the brand that most therapists switch to according to an independent survey. Sometimes it’s easy to be swayed and think you are saving money when you book on a cheaper course.

Below is what one of the many therapists who have had to pay twice had to say:

Like you might be thinking, Laura, from Nottingham, questioned why should she invest in another course, however, her tans were wet, her friends (she didn’t feel confident to spray clients) had tell-tale signs on knuckles, knees and wrists and she got through so much solution that she wasn’t making any profit. In fact, she was close to giving up.
But after talking it through she decided to try the Sienna X training… and found that it was a totally different course, she couldn’t believe the difference.

She learnt lots of different tips, she had more practice, and she felt much more confident. Now her friends actually trust her to do an amazing tan that looks super natural and finally she has many happy paying clients.

Absolutely. Our passion is to help you be successful in your business. We offer ongoing training to help you master your technique and hone your skills in both tan and other beauty treatments.

"I recently trained in my Level 1 spray tanning. Left feeling confident with my tanning skills, having a great understanding of the products, technique and aftercare and consultation process. And of course super excited to start spraying! Can't wait to train in my level 2 & 3."
- Tilly

"I have used Sienna X spray tan for over 6 years and wouldn’t use any other product in my salon. Both staff and clients love the brand as it always develops into a flawless natural colour."

“When I trained with Sienna X I learnt every single thing about tanning and I have used every bit of my training to inform customers, to make decisions myself and to provide the highest quality tan and service.” – Jenna Blake, Accredited Sienna X Therapist

“Where shall I start....oh yes...with a MASSIVE THANK YOU to you!! Your training course has made SUCH a difference!! I am no longer wasting my precious solution by wafting it around all over the place!

The quality of the Sienna X training was worlds apart!! Sienna X is in a completely different class, covering far more information such as the science behind the tanning, contraindications, consultation and most importantly how to be a spray tan expert.

My Sienna X course was so in depth without being confusing. The fact that we all completed an online learning module before arriving meant we all had a basic understanding; it was easy, very informative and left my mind clearer for the overview and practical day, what a fantastic idea!!” – Laura Taylor, Coventry

“I really enjoyed the training and the spray training I revived yesterday. By far the nicest environment and most enjoyable training courses I have been on. Thank you for making your courses so welcoming, easy to follow and fun! I am hoping to do more training with yourselves in the near future either through perfect 10 or on my own, so I look forward to coming back.” – Emily Broadhurst

“The training I received from Sienna was easy, quick and efficient – you don’t need to be trained in beauty to complete the course, ensuring you can start making money straight away.” – Claire Aggarwal

“I would just like to take the opportunity to say a huge thank you to the Sienna X team. I completed my training yesterday and had a fantastic day.

Right from speaking to you on the phone to arrange my training, to meeting Janey in Wakefield yesterday, the service has been exceptional.

Looking forward to getting stuck in as a Sienna X therapist!” - Sally Porter @ Strata Beauty

“I am delighted with my Sienna X kit, it’s the best tan I have ever used and my clients love it. I’ve been really busy over the past few weeks since qualifying and the tan speaks for itself! The training was fantastic with Carolann and I would highly recommend this course to anyone – you will love it! “ - Kerry McNab

“From the very first day I did my training with Sienna to now, the service has always been amazing. When I had issues with my Gun last year I was given advice over the phone, when I broke the pipe on my machine it was immediately replaced, or if I just have a general question about spray tanning, sienna have always been there to help. It doesn't matter who I have spoken to they have always helped me to the best of their ability.

I feel like I have my life back on track now and I'm back out doing what I love. I'm delighted to say I am busier then ever and business is going great.” – Kathleen Robinson

“I really enjoyed my training, I went along and did a day course, and after 10 practise tans I was ready to start tanning my clients. Since I started tanning, a lot of my regular nail clients have started having tans as well, I paid off my kit in a month and am now making money!” – Gemma Reynolds
