Santa Clarita, CA (PressExposure) December 29, 2009 -- With the economy still down people are looking for ways to earn extra income. This is especially true for stay at home moms who may be needing to help supplement the family income while maintaining a flexible schedule. However, becoming a door to door cosmetic saleswoman doesn't have the same appeal it once did with the proliferation of low cost internet sites.
A great alternative is becoming an airbrush tanning technician. This is a booming industry that will always require a skilled technician. With women and men becoming more aware of health concerns associated with tanning beds and sun bathing there is a huge demand for a healthy glow that doesn't harm their skin. Airbrushing is also desirable because it is customized for the individual's skin tone and can be contoured to their body. For potential students, the best part is- it's possible to get trained and certified in one day.
Colour Couture, a southern California airbrush tanning company, offers an all inclusive class. In one day the student learns the basics, gets hands on training with the equipment, and leaves with their certification and a suitcase filled with everything they need to start their own business including a gallon of CC's own signature solution.
Colour Couture owner Monica Blanco began as a mobile technician herself and went from tanning her neighbors to airbrushing movie stars for the red carpet. She teaches the classes herself and gives tips to the students on everything from contouring abs to marketing yourself in your community. "As a mom to two young girls, I loved the flexibility that being a mobile airbrushing tanning artist gave me in the beginning," Ms. Blanco said. Now the business is a corporation that formulates in own products which is sold to high end salons and, of course, to all of their loyal students.
