Hello, my name is Audrey and I’m the owner and certified spray tan artist of Spellbound Tans, LLC. I’ve been a licensed cosmetologist in the beauty industry since 1984 and an active member of both the ASTP (Association of Sunless Tanning Professionals) and ASCP (Associated Skin Care Professionals).
I got my start in the sunless industry out of pure necessity as I’m that ultra-pale skin type 1 who always burns and never tans. I made the same mistake many of us did in while in my late teens and early 20’s by spending countless hours in tanning beds chasing after that ever elusive, healthy bronze glow. This was long before there was a widespread awareness of how dangerous tanning beds and UV sun exposure can be to our skin. I finally realized that no matter how long I spent under UV rays, I could never achieve the color or tan I so greatly desired.
I came to this realization pretty quickly and like most type 1’s, learned to live with my pigment challenged skin tone. I invested a lot of money in sunscreens but the damage was already done. Years later all that sun damage started to surface as age spots appeared and I needed to have abnormal skin cells removed from my nose.
Since its introduction, the sunless tanning industry had advanced by leaps and bounds and today’s technology provides an absolutely flawless application and the ability to truly customize the color and depth of your tan. I’m continuously investing in ongoing training to keep up with the latest application techniques and provide you with the highest quality products and solutions.
I’d love the opportunity to share my knowledge on sun safety and offer you a healthy alternative to traditional tanning. My personal mission is to provide you with a gorgeous tan that will leave you Spellbound…
