katOur “Lion in the Sun” management team has over 50 years combined experience in the indoor tanning industry. AND, this team has grown Lion in the Sun from one location with only 2 beds to now being the area’s premier local tanning services provider with 2 locations and 24 total tanning units. In addition, the Lion in The Sun salons provide various other services including custom air-brush spray tanning and Bleach Bright teeth whitening.
