As its name suggests, Tan Envy Tanning Salon's main objective is to help pale bodies obtain the exact bronze shade they covet most. Numerous tiers of UV tanning beds from brands like Universe and Blue Moon allow bodies to build their tan gradually, while a VersaSpa automated spray-tanning booth sends alternating jets of pigmented mist and drying gusts to ensconce clients in a streak-free glow in fewer than 60 seconds. For those more worried about wrinkles than a waxen complexion, the salon also offers clients access to rejuvenating red-light therapy, a treatment that sends infrared rays deep into skin to enhance collagen production, diminish the appearance of fine lines and acne, or correct an imbalance of infragreen.
A licensed partner at TansAreNowSafe.com, Tara Thweatt imbues bods with golden hues minus the sun’s damaging effects. It’s a safe means of tanning, and since she uses an all-natural solution, it’s also good for the skin. She can gilt hides onsite or at the client’s home or office through her mobile service, which promises a mess-free experience of salon quality. Tans last up to seven days, and because Tara’s services are mobile, she can be booked for events such as weddings, showers, and tanning parties.
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.
