Friends come in handy when one needs a shoulder to cry on or a body to experiment on. Luckily, Fit to Be Tan owner Heather Boss has many. After researching non-UV-based tanning methods in 2007, she began experimenting with airbrush tanning, perfecting the combination of solution and technique after many trials on her willing friends. After word spread from her happy test subjects, Boss opened Fit to Be Tan, which focuses on airbrush tanning and healthy skincare. She uses all natural solutions that bronze the skin without relying on harmful rays from the sun.
