After discovering and treating a few precancerous skin cells, Aislin Spangler decided UV tanning was not the way to go. So she researched alternative options, and by the time she teamed up with her friends Emily Meeker and Lauren Salinas in 2009 to form Spray Soleil, she was well-versed in the field. Today, the trio runs a mobile spray-tan company and travels to clients' homes or offices anywhere within Charleston and Greensboro to mist them with paraben-free tanning solutions that are made in the United States and never tested on animals. Those solutions include witch-hazel-infused organic tanners along with the original solution, which coats skin with a golden hue while infusing it with nourishing vitamins and antioxidants.
Spray Soleil's stylists and aestheticians travel as well, brushing rouge on cheekbones or dyes into hair during makeup and hair treatments. Completing the mobile spa is Ellen, a licensed massage therapist with seven years of experience. She uses long, languid strokes, hot stones, or targeted pressure during customizable massages to relieve fatigue and chronic aches caused by injury or part-time gigs as a whack-a-mole.
