Shanna Hall is a successful business woman in the Nashville community. She not only owns and operates her own GloBody Mobile Tanning business but she also became the first Regional Sales Rep for the GloBody company.
I have had the pleasure of tanning with her on multiple occasions and love it! She makes the whole experience very seamless and comfortable. Plus, you cannot deny the confidence that you feel after gaining that extra color from your spray tan.
The products that she uses are vegan, paraben-free, fast drying, cruelty free, and gluten free. She offers 4 levels of color so that you can find what works best for you and there is no unpleasant odor like most self tanning products. You leave your appointment with a fantastic, natural looking tan.

Tell us about your business and how you became
the successful business woman that you are today.Over 16 year ago I was pregnant with my first child. I felt blah and wanted some color. A friend had 3 tanning businesses and I went to her and she sprayed me for my very first time and I was hooked. I felt comfortable in my own skin after just a short 20 min visit with her. From then on I knew that’s the only way I would tan. The dream and vision of owning my own mobile spray tan business was my first vision....however I had to test many, research all brands, have several tans with different brands before deciding on the brand I would use.
During this time I was in New Home Construction Sales. I had several communities I managed. The market was great and then it all come crashing down. I stayed through the down market and then decided it was time to go. To do something I had a passion about. I used a very well know brand that i loves for over 5 years. I would Spray mobile, dancers, friends and family. Fast forward to today I found a Brand that was everything I had envisioned over 16 years ago. The founders, the product, their mission statement just the whole package was what I wanted. I worked building the GloBody brand out of a gym in Mt Juliet TN. It went from 5 tans a week to 30 plus a week in a little under a year. Continuing to triple over the next year it was then I needed my own space. This is where I am today I bought my GloBody By Shanna business and found space at a Very Respected, well know Salon in my Town. I’m now growing faster than ever while maintaining my vision I had 16 years ago. It takes hard work, long hours, investing time, a vision, support system, mentors, set backs, failings...But if it’s something your passionate about it doesn’t seem like work! There will be days when your tired, overwhelmed, scared but all of those feelings are just emotions to me that as a business owner you have to accept them appreciate them and just Grow into the best Version Of Yourself Inside and Out!!
