A woman was left in hysterics after she “totally messed up” her spray tan.
Brooke Jordan explained that she’d booked herself in to have a spray tan ahead of a staycation she was planning to go on the following week.
But, when she arrived at the appointment, she realised she’d made a mistake.
Instead of a person doing the spray tan for her like usual, it was a machine.
“The machine tells you position one, position two… and tells you when to move,” she said.
“But I for some reason thought it wanted me to stay in position one for a second pass so I got the front done twice.
“Then I switched to the second and third position and then it didn’t spray again for the fourth position, which was my back, so my back’s going to be colourless.”
After explaining her mistake to the member of staff at the salon, she was told that if when the tan developed she hated it, she could come back and they would fix it.
When she woke up the next day she was in hysterics – but not because of her back.
She had a white line across her forehead from where her hairnet had completely covered it.
So she took to TikTok, where she’s known as @ranch_rumors, in the hopes that someone would be able to tell her a hack to get rid of it.
After posting the results of the tan, a number of people joked that she looked like Ross Geller from Friends, as one person said: “Please YouTube ‘Ross gets a spray tan’ from Friends.”
But thankfully, another viewer suggested that she use lemon juice to help get rid of the tan line.
They told her: “A little bit of lemon juice will fade that hard line. Just dampen a washcloth with the juice and gently go over the line.”
Reacting to the comment in a follow-up video, Brooke joked: “I’ll try anything at this point.”
Following the instructions, she squeezed lemon juice on a towel, before going at the tan line on her head.
When it didn’t seem to work as quickly as she hoped it would, she ditched the cloth and began rubbing the lemon itself on her head – and slowly but surely the line began to fade.
Brooke showed off her results and said: “Maybe it faded a little!”, and people were impressed with the results as one person commented: “That did help u can’t really tell once you did it.”
But a few people warned Brooke to make sure to wear suncream afterwards as using lemon before being out in the sun can damage your skin.
Another person also suggested that she hide the tan with a hat instead, whilst someone else said to exfoliate gently with soap and a little baking soda, adding “I am the queen of fake tan fails.”
