Lifelong friends Teresa Fisher and Kaylyn Sisk took the most important risk of their lives together: they traded an eight-hour workday for an entrepreneurial path that would also allow them to spend more time with their loved ones. After doing extensive research, they combined their experience in the cosmetology and tanning industries and opened Tan 2 Glow, providing UV-free tanning. In addition to earning several certifications in the field, Teresa and Kaylyn also traveled to West Hollywood to train with Infinity Sun—a company whose tanning formulas are beloved by celebrities seeking everything from subtle tans for the red carpet to obvious tans for stealing all a room’s attention.
With their newfound knowledge, Teresa and Kaylyn started their business by offering mobile tans and tanning parties while working out of a sophisticated salon. Eventually, they opened their own studios in Fort Worth and Denton, where they now mist bodies with FDA-approved, all-natural, and paraben-free tanning solutions. In addition to one-time spray-downs, they also offer memberships and bridal packages. When they aren't bronzing bodies in-studio, Teresa and Kaylyn host spray-tan socials with gift bags that make the day special for bachelorette parties, birthdays, and solar eclipses.
Six principles guide courses at American Masters Martial Arts.

Whether learning hapkido, tai chi, tae kwon do, or personal safety techniques, students earn a well-rounded education that encompasses both physical and mental goals.
Tan Evolution doesn't mess around with equipment that isn't top-notch. For example, the establishment’s Ergoline and Versa Spa tanning beds and booths possess many features that help make bronzed bodies a reality: high-pressured lamps, body-contoured acrylic, and 500-watt facial and shoulder tanners. But the Smart Tan-certified staff is also on hand to help clients obtain a beautiful full-body tan. They’ll customize a plan for each customer to make sure the tan suits their body. Tanning is the marquee service here, but Tan Evolution offers other services, such as eyebrow and facial threading, and eyelash extensions.
Ten separate rooms with misters, iPod plug-ins for speakers, aromatherapy, and, of course, UV tanning beds that resemble space pods—these are the technologies that define Sunset Tan. The high-tech salon also contains open-air spray tan booths capable of toning skin to eight different shades, with an optional setting to emphasize muscles lines and one to emphasize personality lines. Of course, the staff knows a machine doesn’t always cut it, so they offer hand-applied airbrush trans available on-location or in private residences.
Epic Tan & Body Zone augments and alters the skin with a variety of body services. Tanning packages allow guests to change their epidermal tones, whereas their tattoo artists can redecorate a small corner of skin. The shop can help shave off inches with detoxifying body wraps, and their massage services robe skin in a gentle assault of soft strokes. The team also welcomes guests to splurge on provisions such as lotion, eyewear, and jewelry, or opt for a body piercing to anger your overprotective uncle, who is an airport metal detector.
Like any redhead, Jennifer Davis had intimate knowledge of the painful burns that would result when she tried to imbue her fair complexion with a sultry summer glow. Determined to help her fellow Texans achieve a sun-kissed hue without the damaging effects of tanning, Jennifer opened a mobile airbrush-tanning business that has since expanded to multiple salon hubs situated throughout the Dallas metro area.
Using a paraben-free, DHA solution, the salon’s certified airbrush technicians completely envelop frames in a shade tailored to skin tones, leaving a streak-free color that lets patrons avoid the attentions of lovelorn zebras. The tanning solution is applied and dry within 30 minutes, both illuminating bodily hues and covering skin imperfections such as blemishes, cellulite, and stretch marks during its two-week tenure on the skin. The salon also stocks a supply of Norvell products and airbrushing machines, allowing guests to maintain golden skin at home without replacing showerheads with arcade token machines.
