Not your mom’s tanning salon, CoCo Glo Bar of Boise, Idaho provides the very latest in safe and effective tanning options. “We are a sunless only tanning salon that promotes skin health and safe tanning through infrared body wrap services, custom spray tans and sunless products,” says owner Contessa Parsons. “I was made aware of the damage to my own skin from UV tanning and so I’m on a mission to both provide for customers and educate them on safe tanning options.”

Her mission has been made decidedly more difficult by the pandemic. “I had to close my doors for about nine weeks, but I refused to give up on my service to my clients,” says Parsons. “I changed my business so I could offer products via my website and also added virtual spray tanning.”

To Parsons, the dead of winter is a great time to tan safely, so when Columbia Bank asked her to be a part of their Pass It On Project, she didn’t hesitate. Wanting to brighten someone’s day, CoCo Glo Bar is providing free services to deserving customers and Columbia Bank is picking up the tab. “I’m passing it on to ten women who richly deserve to treat themselves to a great tan,” she says. “Often women are so busy they don’t invest in themselves, but with Columbia Bank’s gift, I’m going to make sure they do!”
