Founder Todd Beckman opened the first Tan Company location, then called The St. Louis Tan Company, in 1994 with a pair of average-size sun retreats. After perfecting a superstore concept with multiple levels of tanning beds and an intrepid-reporter alter ego, Beckman's bronzing business now spans 53 locations in 8 states, including 39 locations in the St. Louis area. Todd ensures each salon keeps the same high standards that won the 2010 award for Best Tanning in St. Louis from CityVoter.
A knowledgeable staff maintains each bright, highly sanitized environment and stocks shelves with Australian Gold, Swedish Beauty, and Designer Skin tanning products. The Tan Company also fashions UV-free tans with Mystic Tan standup booths that evenly spritz bodies with a paraben-free DHA solution infused with aloe vera.
Hollywood Tan's 11 locations help Midwesterners stay tan year-round?even under their parkas. They accomplish this using equipment such as standup capsules, tanning beds, and Mystic Tan booths. Off to the side, lotions stand at attention on shelves, ready to help clients maintain their tan and keep their skin moisturized.
The style stalwarts at Supercuts have trimmed, toned, and honed the domes of hair-bearing hominids for decades. Walk-ins and waltz-ins are always welcome seven days a week at any of Supercuts' convenient locations. The experienced stylists can accommodate cuts ranging from quick, careful mop maintenance to a more buzzworthy beehive for hypnotizing local grizzlies. Each scissor-handed specialist will draw from a vat of experience, leveraging quality hair products from Paul Mitchell and others to infuse your filaments with a winsome glow and creative coiffure. Feel free to stockpile up to three Groupons to ensure a series of sure-fire cuts before snow-spooked wallets retreat into prolonged hibernation.
No amount of rain, snow, or darkness can stop Eclipse Tan from imbuing people with sun-kissed skin. Their tanning beds?which come equipped with ergonomically-designed bench and cooling fans?employ up to 48 bulbs to darken bodies in as little as 10 minutes. Patrons can opt for a UV-free tan with the salon?s spray tanning service. During these sessions, a special skin-darkening formula is applied to any exposed area of skin, which can be a lot if you're wearing a bikini or very little if you're wearing a scuba suit.
At the intimate Mabista Salon & Spa, Gloria Doyle captains a staff of nail technicians, skincare specialists, and massage therapists. The licensed professionals float around the intimate space, leading customers to cushy black chairs for Shellac manicures or ushering them into private treatment rooms for waxing services and warm bamboo massages. They administer a sweeping array of specialty facials, smoothing wrinkles and rejuvenating skin with refining masks, exfoliating sea salts, and advanced Phytomer skincare products.
