Abbi first trained with St Tropez in 2006 where she worked in a local salon.
She then started working directly for St Tropez in the head office in 2008 where she got a great insight of the brand as a whole. Abbi then moved to London in 2010 where she now tans the stars! Abbi often tans Kelly Osbourne, Abbey Clancey, dancers from big West End shows and TV presenters just to name but a few! She also works backstage at London Fashion Week where St Tropez is backstage tanning the models for major designer shows. Not to mention tanning for the Oscars in sunny LA! Abbi’s schedule is always fully booked – it’s a 24-7 job!
Abbi's Hints & Tips
Exfoliate the day before with St Tropez Body Polish, moisturise dry areas especially hands elbows knees and feet and then apply your self tan evenly over the body. Leave on the skin to develop for 12 hours, wash off with warm water and St Tropez shower cream and then moisturise the whole body to ensure the skin is left super hydrated and glowing.
My favourite three products are Body Moisturiser (it’s a definite must!) Bronzing Mousse and Wash Off Spray.
It’s difficult to say as each day is completely different! I have a varied job which can range from getting a call anytime of the day to tan a celeb, going on location for photoshoots, tanning models and dealing with the press.
My favourite part of the job is the high profile events that we get invited to! For example I flew to LA to tan for the Oscars which was my absolute highlight to the job! Also tanning in the VIP section at V Festival and tanning the models at London Fashion Week.
