Quinn, who also serves as co-founder and CEO of Southern California-based Kona Tanning Company, today released Contouring for Airbrush Spray Tanning: The Everyday Female Edition, the first in a series of contouring expertise manuals designed to teach the delicate art of airbrush contouring, as well as guidance on the best products and equipment to use in the application.
In the salon, “airbrush abs” is a huge request from nearly every client, and while it’s exciting to share in the passion of sunless beauty it can present a problem for the artist, who needs to become more familiar with stylized, cutting-edge anatomy.
