Fabiola is Miami’s go-to celebrity spray tan artist. Over the past 20+ years, her flourishing spray tanning business, Sobe Tan by Fabiola, has turned her into a household name for anyone seeking a safe, sunless bronzed look. Born in Guayaquil, Ecuador, she opened a spa in Quito, Ecuador with the first tanning beds in the city.

“I hate them now—using a tanning bed is one of the biggest regrets of my life,” explains Fabiola.

This is my technique for #spraytanning since I started in 2000, I have changed a few things as I saw how clients would react to certain techniques, like if they would complaint about certain areas being lighter or darker, I give all my tools of the trade in my ebook Mastering the Art of Spray Tanning available at our website for $29.99, available at our website www.sobetan.com or click on link on my bio to purchase. Disponible en español. On a side note I am not using that plastic gun anymore, it didn’t work for me it kept on breaking and hose on melting, nothing like sturdy metal guns, those never break! 💪🏽 ________ Tengo una técnica muy especifica para el bronceado en spray desde que comencé hacerlo en el 2000, he cambiado algunas técnicas dependiendo de las criticas que he tenido con mis clientas, de ciertas areas que quedaban mas claras o mas oscuras, en nuestro libro electrónico doy todos los detalles y secretos que tengo para hacerlo perfecto, cómpralo en nuestro sitio de web www.sobetan.com o haz click en mi bio de aquí de IG. Como nota a parte ya no estoy utilizando la pistola que muestro en este video, era de plástico lo cual hacia que se dañara constantemente y que la manguera se derritiera, nada como las pistolas de metal, mucho mas fuertes 💪🏽
