Today we’d like to introduce you to Ashley Gomes.
Ashley, please share your story with us. How did you get to where you are today?
I have always been an entrepreneur at heart and dreamt about starting my own company one day. I have been in the entertainment field as a singer, musician, and actress my whole life. I created a brand for myself in that field and included my passions about health, clean living, skincare, makeup, and fashion along the way. I wanted to create a company and brand where my passions could be shared with others.
I became a certified makeup artist and started to do makeup on the side. I loved making clients feel beautiful in their own skin, and it was so satisfying to see their face light up with joy after applying their makeup. I had been getting requests asking if I also did spray tans along with makeup, and at the time I said no, but it became a thought in my mind. Why couldn’t I? I loved getting spray tans when I would go to a salon, but the smell always bothered me because of the chemicals in their solution. I started doing some research and found there was a need for a healthy alternative to spray tans in Los Angeles. I live a very healthy lifestyle and only use all natural and organic skincare products.
After careful consideration and planning, I decided to start my own mobile spray tan business and Gotta Glow was formed! I became trained as a spray tan artist, and created an all-natural, organic, vegan, eco-friendly solution that smells amazing like vanilla! We are also open 24/7! This business is still fairly new (opened in March 2019), but growing incredibly fast! We are planning on adding other services in the future, as well as products! The feedback we have received from clients has been amazing so far. Most of our clients have become regulars and are addicted to our solution. They love that it is organic, and they always comment on how nice it smells. We are very proud to say that we are the most affordable mobile spray tan service in all of Los Angeles!
Has it been a smooth road?
Starting a small business takes work, time, and dedication. However, when you love what you do, it does not feel like work! It has been a lot of fun and so far has been a pretty smooth ride! There are always struggles in the beginning with any business like getting the word out, but we have been slowing growing using social media and by word of mouth! We have an excellent referral and loyalty program, and that has allowed us to keep building more clientele. We focus on giving excellent customer service every time and ensuring that every client is happy with their spray tan during and after by doing follow ups the next day. Having happy returning clients is what is most important to us!
So, as you know, we’re impressed with Gotta Glow – tell our readers more, for example what you’re most proud of and what sets you apart from others.
Gotta Glow is a mobile spray tan service serving all of Los Angeles. We come to your home, hotel, or airbnb making your busy day that much easier by coming to you! We are also open 24 hours 7 days a week, so if you need a last minute spray tan at 2am, we will be there! How it works, is one of our friendly and experienced spray tan artists will arrive at your home and pop up a tent in a well lit room of your choosing. This tent keeps all the spray tan solution inside and contained, so there is no mess at all! We offer anything you might need: hair net, disposable thong, sticky feet, or you can spray in the nude! Our friendly spray tan artist will make you feel extremely comfortable and relaxed. You will have a naturally beautiful glow, and we customize your color to how light or dark you like! The entire process takes no more than 20-30 minutes.
Our solution is made with all natural and organic ingredients including aloe vera, brown sugar, fruits, and anti-aging properties. It is also 100% vegan, cruelty-free, paraben-free, gluten-free, and eco-certified. It smells amazing, with a light vanilla scent and no chemical smell at all. We use a brown sugar base to ensure you have a golden bronzed tan, with no possibility of any orange color! Our solution is express, so you can rinse it off in just 2-4 hours unlike most other places where you need to wait 8-12 hours! Our tan also lasts up to 7-12 days with proper care. Our mobile spray tan service is ideal because we give you an amazing bronzed glow without using any harsh chemicals or harmful UV rays by laying out in the sun or using a tanning bed. What is also great about our solution is that it is very quick drying, skin nourishing, and leaves you without feeling sticky. It also looks amazing right after getting sprayed, so you can even choose to wear it out all day if you want! We also offer an amazing referral and loyalty program which leads to a free spray tan! We are proud to say that we are the most affordable mobile spray tan company in Los Angeles!
Let’s touch on your thoughts about our city – what do you like the most and least?
Los Angeles is an amazing city, with so many places to explore. There are so many great things from the beach to Rodeo Drive, movie studio tours, celebrity sightings, and lots of amazing food, music, and entertainment. One of the drawbacks of this city (which anyone who lives here can relate) is the traffic. Driving any distance can take a long time due to traffic, and parking can always be difficult to find as well. This makes our company that much more appealing! We bring everything to you so you do not have to leave the house and deal with traffic or parking!
