About The Owner
Carissa Serylo, a natural redhead with Scottish and Irish roots, had never been successful at achieving a natural tan. She wanted an alternative that made her feel healthy and provided the tan she couldn’t otherwise achieve. Like most fair-skinned women she was fearful of skin cancer. This escalated when family members were diagnosed with basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma, and melanoma. She experimented with sunless lotions, cosmetics, and spray booths eventually finding that custom airbrush tanning was the best option available. The problem was that there weren’t many salons offering this service.
How It All Started
The idea of learning the trade started in 2008 when she learned that her career in the mortgage industry was threatened by the economic turmoil the nation was experiencing. The concept of making it affordable and convenient was how she was able to grow the business while continuing to work her next day job at a financial investing company. By 2009, Carissa took the risk and quit her full-time job to pursue her dream of being her own boss and helping others feel great about themselves – inside and out.
Earning her Norvell Master Certification in Chicago in 2011 was a pivotal moment in her spray tanning career. Receiving hands-on training from Brandon Cardinal and meeting the owner, Rick Norvell was even more inspiring to the budding entrepreneur.
Growing For the Future
After four years of running the business from her former apartment in Farmington Hills, Carissa moved the growing business to downtown Farmington in July 2012. Carissa is grateful that the spray tanning industry continues to evolve and grow. This has allowed her to make yet another leap for SprayChic. In late August 2016, she relocated the business to a larger location in downtown Wixom. The new space is 3x the size of the former location. It features 3 spray rooms, higher visibility, and a glamorous, yet comfortable atmosphere. The business features top-of-the-line equipment and the ability to accommodate more clients. Even still, SprayChic provides only custom airbrush tans and now a staff to carry on the legacy of exceptional service.
