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.
Technicians at Shine Sunless Tanning help clients darken epidermises evenly with a customized plant-based mist in VersaSpa sunless-tanning booths. The tans are so effective that in 2011, Shine was named the official tanning provider of the St. Louis Rams cheerleaders. Inside each private booth, automated airbrushes apply even coats of a pigmented formula to the skin, which is automatically blown dry. The enclosed environment diminishes the orange or yellow tinge traditionally associated with spray tanning since it controls some environmental factors such as temperature, light exposure, and percentage of orange zest added to the air. Clients get to choose which shade of tanning formula will be used during their session, as well as whether they’d like to cap off their session with an anti-aging mist.
