A Truly Healthy Tan

There’s an episode of Friends where Ross gets a bad spray tan and ends up some awful combination of brown and orange. Leanne Rancier, founder of Golden Mobile Spray Tan says she’s spent her career fighting against that stigma. When she started out, Leanne researched a huge variety of spray solutions, “and if anyone ever said, ‘Oh, you look a little orange,’ I never used it again,” she says. The solution she eventually settled on is actually good for the skin, offering moisture, skin-firming components like vitamin E, aloe vera and green tea extract. Leanne has been silencing the skeptics ever since. When dealing with husbands and wives, notes Leanne, “the husbands always say, ‘I don’t want one, I don’t want one,' but when they see their wives, they always end up getting one."

The tans are customized to your skin tone and desired colour, from very subtle tans for those with fair skin to much darker ones for fitness models or body builders. But perhaps the most unique thing about Leanne’s business is the mobile aspect: she makes house calls. Clients can book appointments online and Leanne visits them at home, sets up a small tent and spray tans them. The whole process only takes about 20 minutes. If you live close by Leanne also does spray tans in her home studio.

It’s like an art. You’re spray painting a person’s body and you see the instant transformation and how happy they are. It’s making someone look and feel really good about themselves in a matter of 10 minutes. - Leanne Rancier, founder

A Ray of Sunshine

Despite doing very little advertising for Golden Mobile Spray Tan, Leanne has gained a loyal customer base and lots of great reviews and referrals from clients seeing her work. She does spray tan parties where the host gets a free tan and friends receive a discount. She does weddings, office events, grads and more. “I really, really enjoy doing it,” Leanne says. “It’s like an art. You’re spray painting a person’s body and you see the instant transformation and how happy they are. It’s making someone look and feel really good about themselves in a matter of 10 minutes.”

Leanne is also a pro at making her clients feel comfortable. “I have a lot of clients that have turned into really good friends,” Leanne says. “We go out to lunch and talk about the things we have in common, especially about motherhood.” Doing spray tans is a bit like being a hairdresser: “You become a little bit of a therapist. You can’t hide a lot without clothes on,” she jokes.

Mom and Entrepreneur

Leanne is a mother of six, and she started Golden Mobile Spray Tan because it gave her the flexibility to both work and still be an attentive mom. In fact, the whole business started when her teenage daughter wanted to use a tanning bed. “I knew how damaging they are to your skin,” Leanne says. So she decided to become the alternative option for tanning.

The future is looking bright for this busy mother and business owner. “I take a lot of pride in it, as it sets a great example for my kids that anything is achievable,” Leanne says. “Just because you’re a mom doesn’t mean that you can’t go and be an entrepreneur.”
