KIM VAN TUSSENBROEK
Business Owner / International Spray Tan Stylist – Willoughby Studio
Hello… I’m Kim and I am the founder of Colour Me Bronze®.
My Tanning History…
Spray tanning recreationally for friends and family for just over 5 years I decided to start up my own business. As an ex “baby-oil” sunbaker and solarium user for many years during my teens and early 20’s I now suffer the consequences of getting too burnt on one (or many) of these occasions, resulting in now needing to get regular skin check-ups for skin cancer. My goal is to help others and stop them from making the same mistakes I did. Spray tanning is by far the safest method of getting a tan without “baking” in the sun or under a solarium to get colour. I believe if I can convert even just one person from tanning in the sun or using a solarium to getting a spray tan instead I have potentially saved them for getting skin cancer.
I’m passionate about spray tanning and a perfectionist at heart. I am always researching online to expand my knowledge base to bring the most up-to-date information and techniques to my clients. After developing my own spray tanning range ensures that I am giving my clients the best spray tan possible.
I have worked with an extensive amount of people and businesses including:
- Various Celebrities and TV personalities (both Australian and overseas clients)
- Dan & Maz Show
- Kyle & Jackie O Show
- Dana Carmont
- Channel 7
- House Rules TV Show
- Channel 9
- Gok Wan’s “Style the Nation” – Australia
- IMG Models
- Chadwick Model
- The Agency Models
- Bras without Wires
- Vogue Australia
- Mario Testino Production Company
- Cast of the Bold and the Beautiful
I was also the first person in Sydney to introduce 3D Tanning to the market, and am the inventor of the new 4DHD Spray Tanning Technique.
As an experienced Spray Tan Stylist tanning now for over 13 years and completing over 40,000 spray tans in my career so far I am dedicated to a personalised service which ensures a flawless tan every time.
Since no skin tone is the same, I can mix different shades of colours to suit a clients’ individual skin tone. This guarantees the clients get the best colour and the most natural looking tan possible. I find the best spray tan colour for their skin tone, taking into consideration what the spray tan is for ie if it is for a special event, whether it’s a daytime or evening event, colour of dress/outfit client will be wearing, and course, skin tone, eye and hair colour. All of these factors are very important in getting the colour perfect. I use my very own specialised tanning technique which guarantees a flawlesss result every time. I’ve also perfected the art of spray tanning the hands and feet so clients won’t have to worry about any orange undertones or over-spraying in those areas, which is a common mistake with spray tans.
Clients are guaranteed to walk out happy once their spray tan session is over and will definitely want to come back again and again.
I Do Body Building Tans Too…
I am also a specialised spray tanner in the Body Building industry working alongside the best in the industry here in Sydney, Interstate and Internationally at Body Building competitions. I’ve worked backstage at most of the NSW competitions for ICN and ANB so you can guarantee a personalised service before your stage time and throughout the day, ensuring that you look your best before each time you need to walk out on stage. We only use the best competition tanning solution on the market – Black Magic’s “MuscleTan” and “BikiniTan”.
