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. These principles—which include politeness, bravery, and respect—ensure that students come away not only with martial arts skills but also with a sense of character and integrity. Instructors specialize in seven martial arts styles, and while some courses are sports-oriented, others focus on self-defense. 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.
“Sol” may be the Spanish word for “sun," but Earth's UV-dispensing star has no place at Sol Sunless Tanning. Instead, the salon's airbrush artists translate spritzes of color into sun-kissed glows. Bodies bask in an organic solution infused with DHA, which reacts with the skin’s amino acids to produce color. By custom mixing this formula to complement each client's skin tone, the specialists ensure that everyone leaves sporting a natural-looking shade without the harsh tones required to infiltrate Bert and Ernie's family reunion.
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.
Perfect Tan's airbrush artists swathe skin in custom-blended tanning formulas that enhance beauty and self-confidence without UV exposure. The salon’s technicians show a remarkable concern for detail during spray-tan applications, evenly covering the skin with a DHA-based solution derived from sugar beets. Each appointment consists of a brief consultation, five minutes of spraying, and a warm blast of blow-dryer air. Natural-looking hues, such as cocoa, almond, and deep-fried chocolate, swirl together to create a custom color that radiates from skin for several days. Body butters, sugar scrubs, and moisturizers from brands such as Rain and Jamaica Me Tan line the shelves of the studio's boutique; these and other products can help patrons maintain a healthy, hydrated glow.
