BOB Logo 2015 - Clear 4C (layers)Less than a year old, Bronzology is a Redondo Beach-based mobile airbrush tanning service that’s with eyes on taking the whole of the Santa Monica Bay by storm. Though owner Monique Nastari has designs to open multiple brick and mortar locations (the company’s first outpost just opened in Santa Monica), the core of Bronzology is the ability to bring her business to her customers. “When you get a tan, you want to be comfortable, you want to relax — you don’t want to be out, running errands, feeling sticky.” D.M.
