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 Eastern art of brow threading has become wildly popular in the United States, a trend aesthetician Almas Karowalia astutely followed, enabling her to open 15 locations of Perfect Brow Bar across the Midwest, Texas, and Louisiana. At each outpost, practitioners clean up uneven brows and hairlines with strands of twisted thread that can remove multiple rows of hair with a single pass. Her teams boast that they can complete brows in as little as 5 minutes and require only 10–15 minutes to thread an entire face. The expedient technique generally results in less pain and irritation than other hair-removal methods, though at Perfect Brow Bar patrons can also opt for traditional waxing services. In addition to hair removal, aestheticians dress up skin with makeup applications, lash extensions, and henna tattoos of tuxedos or ball gowns.

If you walk into Blanc Studio planning to color your hair, you may just walk out with a brand new purse. After coloring 100 clients, the studio draws the name of one of those 100 clients and gifts them a Coach bag. This commitment to go above and beyond for a good experience becomes evident in other ways as well. A 52-inch television equipped with Netflix and a gaming system entertains kids as their parents relax in the stylists’ chair, and the studio’s master stylist approves each coiffure before clients depart or stay to use the Wii.

The highly trained staffers at Perfect Eyebrows shape a clean and precise hairline by swiftly plucking out strands with thread. Said to have originated in India, eyebrow threading techniques are all-natural—foregoing chemicals, lasers, and other irritants—and usually also cause less pain than tweezers or waxing. During sessions, beauticians double-strand pieces of thread over full lines of hair to extract it with a swift tug, similar to the process of removing a loose tooth or unpopular state senator.
