Anne Pipkin was once a loyal customer of gorgeousGLO. But she loved the spray-tanning salon so much that she couldn't resist becoming the owner. In that capacity, Pipkin joins with her fellow staff members, Donna Sloop, Zoe Shook, and Catherine Slaven, to share their studio's natural spray-tanning formula with their clients. They help tanners achieve bronzed hues without the incurring harmful effects of UV rays or painstakingly coloring themselves in gold crayon. Alternatively, an on-site blow-out center manned by stylists Charlie Butler, Stephanie Rivera, Emily McCorkle, Deidra Sigarroa, Christina Couch, Lauren Wescott, and Zoe Shook top off tan looks with sleekly styled coifs. Blowouts, updos, and conditioning treatments prepare locks for special events including prom, weddings, and engagement parties.
Having begun as a single tanning shop in Greenville during the autumn of 1990, Ultratan has since blossomed into more than 70 locations throughout the Carolinas and Georgia due to its popularity and commitment to quality service. Over the years, the collection of spas has accumulated numerous awards such as Best Tanning Salon from the Daily Gamecock for providing the best equipment in both tanning beds and spray-tan technology. As a member of the International Smart Tan Network, its commitment to safe tans also encompasses a passion for keeping their customers educated about responsible tanning routines and never tanning without a helmet.
Licensed aesthetician and makeup artist Rhonda Green offers custom medical-grade-skincare and sunless-tanning treatments at Just Glo Studio. Along with therapeutic facials, Green specializes in chemical peels, microdermabrasion treatments, and waxing. For sunless tanning, technicians wield equipment from Infinity Sun to bronze their clients, mixing the sprays with optional anti-aging treatments.

Everyone who visits City Tan leaves with fashionably bronzed skin thanks to regular and UV-free technology. Inside beds and booths, lamps cast their tanning spells during 9- to 15-minute sessions.

The staff also provides tanning with an airbrush formula inside a heated Norvell booth.
