For Liquid Sun owner Natalie, spray tanning is more than just a career; it’s personal. After watching her mother battle and survive skin cancer, she knew she couldn’t just watch the UV-tanning epidemic grow unchecked. She decided to open a tanning salon solely dedicated to UV-free methods, creating a space where she could help clients get the rich dark tans they desired while educating them on the risks of UV exposure.
Natalie uses two styles of organic, hypoallergenic solutions, one for classic spray tans and a darker specialty hue that she uses during weekly tanning appointments with the Washington Wizards cheerleaders.

Her hand-applied tans stay put for 7–10 days, giving clients the perfect hues they need for big events such as weddings, vacations, and proms.
