A woman from Georgia is taking her tanning business to the next level.
Alyssa Lipscomb started her business, Tainted Lady, with the idea of bringing her experience as a beauty therapist to tanning salons and spa facilities.
“My clients have really benefited from my knowledge,” Lipscom says.
“I have a real understanding of what goes on in a spa, what needs to be done and I have the knowledge to give them the tools to make it happen.”
Lipscomb says she wanted to bring her experience to tanneries.
“I have this love of people and the human experience, I wanted to share it with people, so I started my own salon,” Lapscom says, adding that she’s already had more than 1,000 clients.
Lipscom started TaintedLady with a simple premise: “My clients, my clients need the knowledge, they need to be empowered.
They need to know what they need, and that is to take care of themselves.”
The salon’s first session was held in the lobby of the local Lipsco, a tanning spa, and is now open to all clients.
Lipscum says she wants to make sure that her salon is one of the first in the state of Georgia to offer an affordable alternative to traditional tanning services.
Lapscom has even had some success with the concept.
“It was really cool to see people come in and say, ‘Hey, you know what, I need a tattoo or something.
I want a tattoo on my leg or on my face,'” Lips says.
Lapses said she’s been working with the local community since her inception.
“In the past few months, we’ve had a lot of people come through.
It has been a blast.
I can’t wait to continue to build this and get it to other areas of the state.”
