ASTP Member Feature | Meet Amanda Hood

ASTP is proud to have some really outstanding sunless business owners who make up our membership base. Each week, we feature one of our members so you can get to know them and their business.

We would like you to meet Amanda Hood, owner of Tantalizing Spray Tanz in Johnston, IA.

Type of Business: Home Studio

Amount of Time in Business: 3 years


Biz Social Media Links:
IG:  @Tantalizing_spraytanz

Solution(s) I Love: Norvell and South Seas

Tools of the Trade: Fuji Salon Tan

What I Wear: Norvell mixture and South Seas Fuji Express Rapid solutions

I chose to be an airbrush tanner because: Spray Tanning is a good fit for my busy stay-at-home mom life!

Favorite social media outlet: IG and FB

The one thing I could not live without for my biz: Quality solution and a good extraction unit!

The part of owning my own business I am not very good at: Telling people no! I always manage to squeeze people in even though it's not conducive to my schedule.

The one thing I wish I knew when I started my business: It takes time to build a client base and your sprays will get better with repetition, be patient!

Where I plan to be in five years: In my own space somewhere or we may possibly be doing a build out on our property so I can have my own "space"!

Business owners who inspire me: All of ladies of ASTP! I've learned and grown so much from each of you!

When I’m not working, I love to: Be a mom/wife to my crazy little family and help coach my kids' basketball teams

My favorite thing about owning my own business: I set my own schedule! I can be a stay-at-home mom with a great side income!

The thing I dislike most about owning my own business: So far nothing really!

If I could share some wisdom with someone just getting started in this biz it would be: Be patient, it takes time to really craft your own technique and build a quality reputation!
