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.
The licensed aestheticians at FaceLuXe clear skin of dirt and unwanted hair with a full spectrum of facials and waxing services. Their concern for individual care shines through in the consultations that precede each treatment, during which they select products that match clients’ specific skin types. They then use these products in signature facials designed to address issues associated with aging, such as fine lines and burn marks from trying to blow out too many birthday candles at once. As a partner of MassageLuXe—a company dedicated to improving health through therapeutic massage—FaceLuXe offers relaxation packages such as the Day of Renew treatment, which includes a massage, facial, and warm lavender paraffin treatment for the hands and feet.
Part of the Bumble and bumble salon network, Ta-Da’ Salon has been styling visitors and teaching professional stylists for more than 30 years. Owner Kurt Busch designed his beauty oasis to evoke the feel of a salon in downtown New York City, and his team of stylists boasts a wealth of specialties. Some specialize in cutting curly hair, while others focus on coloring broccoli florets. Haircare isn’t the only item on the treatment menu, however; aestheticians administer facials and waxing, and nail technicians tend to hands and feet in a private pedicure room.
Spa Nova's licensed and experienced aestheticians revivify the corporeal shell with exfoliation, facial, and LHE hair-removal services. Facials for both men and women rewind the clock by battling blemishes and wrinkles, and exfoliating peels eliminate dead skin cells on the face to help prevent the mess that humans generally leave after their monthly molt. LHE-based hair removal, meanwhile, utilizes specific wavelengths and pulse durations to coagulate hair follicles with minimal effect on the surrounding skin.
