Ancillary Services

Diversification is essential for today’s professional tanning salons. Offering a wide range of ancillary services can make the difference in whether a salon stays profitable. Spray tan is the most popular add-on service beyond UV tanning; however, teeth whitening, light therapy, and body massage – by a massage therapist or water massage equipment – are all providing revenue boosts. Smart salon owners stay on top of the latest trends and evaluate which ancillary services are right for their customers.
