Spray tanning boss branded ‘disgusting’ over message to size 10 customer
A spray tanning boss has been branded ‘disgusting’ for messaging a customer to say she would be charged extra for being bigger than her usual size 8 clients.
The business owner stated it was her ‘policy’ – and an additional $20 (£15) would be added on top of the normal $35 (£26) cost because she was a size 10-12.
The unnamed boss delivered another blow when she said if the woman didn’t want to pay more then she should "lose a little"
The messages began: “Hey girl! I noticed you didn’t have a price list on your insta and was wondering how much for the 1 hr express spray tan,” the customer wrote.
The owner replied: “Hey hun. It’s $35 for a 1 hour express. I just had a look at your Instagram and I’m just wondering what size you are??”
The confused woman wrote back: “Oh haha, I’m a size 10-12 AU why is that?”
The spray tanner then explained her policy of charging some women extra.
“My regular clients are a max size 8," she said. "It’ll be $20 extra as there’s more surface area if you know what I mean.”
The shocked unnamed customer then queried in a Facebook group whether this was normal among professional spray tanners.
However, the business owner saw and sent another message saying: "If you don’t want to pay a $20 surcharge maybe lose a little.
"Not trying to be mean, it’s just the industry x"
Since the messages were made public, social media users have been quick to voice their outrage.
One person wrote: "I am a professional spray tanner and this absolutely disgusts me!
"The whole point of our job is to make every single person that walks into our studio feel beautiful and confident in their own skin! Nobody should be made to pay extra based on their size."
Another business owner said: "It’s just this greedy self absorbed person claiming to be a professional.
"People like this are the reason sooo many others refuse to get a professional spray tan because they think they will be judged or shamed!"
One person quipped: "What does she charge for height as well? Like sorry you’re like 7 foot, that’s an extra $20."
And a third said: "I’m 36 wks pregnant, i better not contact her for a tan she’ll probably charge me for 2 people ."
