Although she knew the risks of tanning, Tara Hale-Mies was a regular user of UV tanning beds. But when she saw how natural airbrush tans looked, she finally made the switch. Now she promotes the long-term beauty benefits of sunless tanning and shows clients how to stay bronzed without exposing themselves to premature aging and health issues. Tara only uses Body Bronze products, selected for the rich colors they're able to produce, even without Crayola's permission. Each airbrush tan lasts 7–10 days.
