1604780_815246928491410_290870644_nIs summer almost over and you still don’t have a tan! I had an event to go to a few weeks ago and really wanted to have a little more color. I checked out The Bronzing Boutique by Becca! I can’t believe how great an airbrushed tan can look. Becca takes her time to properly apply the tan so it looks natural (not orange!). You can stop by her house in Holts Summit or she can come to you!

Special!  For the month of August all teachers are $20 for an airbrush tan.  This includes teachers of all grades, daycare providers, trainers, bosses, managers, supervisors. Anyone who teaches!
