Sun Kissed By Chris Opens In Manhasset


A new business is making sun shine at 6 George St. in Manhasset. Christina Pappas, a 23-year-old businesswoman, has set up shop to make sure that you can have a sun-kissed tan look even in the middle of winter, without the harmful rays of the sun. Pappas is from East Meadow and has been working at creating beautiful tans for her clients. Her customized tanning solution is organic, paraben-free and vegan. She has been perfecting the best solution for a while now and has created a solution that looks amazing on sensitive skin and is all-natural and made with healthy ingredients.
Pappas graduated from Adelphi University with a degree in business and has been working in the industry ever since. She has established her shop in a location very convenient for commuters, residents and visitors. Appointments are made online but she will travel to your home or office to provide the service.
“My goal is to provide my clients with an individualized, custom, sunless tan while maintaining a natural appearance,” said Pappas.
Her salon is intimate, with a makeup room and a separate tanning room. The process of tanning is typically done standing up and the solution is sprayed or airbrushed onto the body. A typical tan lasts from four to 10 days, depending on the aftercare attention and the general nature of a specific person’s skin.
Pappas gives customers the utmost care and fully describes exactly what the client will experience. As far as how light or dark the tan will be is determined by the client. “You control how dark you want your results to be,” said Pappas. “I strive to make each client walk out of the salon feeling confident and refreshed.”
The air-brushed tan can be applied to the entire body or half body. To prepare, clients need to exfoliate their skin so that the solution better adheres to the skin. It is also recommended that loose clothing be worn so that the solution does come off after the tanning solution is applied. Garments worn during the session determine tan lines. Bathing suits, strapless bras and g-string thongs are recommended. Manicures and pedicures should be done prior to the session. There are also several post-session tips customers need to adhere to so that the tan is maintained.
Pricing begins at $75 a session. Packages are available and a student discount is offered. Additional make-up services by Geena are available. Visit or call 516-698-9802.
