OAKLAND, N.J. – Tricia Bazzano spent years working as a personal trainer, an EMT and in the dermatology field.

When she saw an opportunity to utilize her skill set while working for herself, she grabbed it.

That's why she opened Here We Glow Tanning this year in Oakland.

“I know the body. I know the skin. And it’s a good fit,” said Bazzano of Ringwood while sitting behind the front desk of her new business.

The spot on Elm Street had been a tanning salon before, and Bazzano had been a client. But she has completely revamped the space to make it her own, and give it a spa-like and relaxing feel.

“We try to make it an experience for the customer,” Bazzano said, adding that she wants customers to feel relaxed and not stressed or rushed when they are at the salon.

Bazzano said she added mirrors to the tanning rooms, so clients can get ready before leaving, and the rooms are stocked with things like hair ties and body sprays. And she personally ensures everything is clean for customers.

“I am all about cleanliness,” she said. “I want to make sure everything is meticulous and spotless.”

Bazzano said she is always striving to improve her business.

“With a small business, I just think the expression ‘if it isn’t broke, don’t fix it,’ doesn’t apply,” she said. “It is always, ‘what can you do better?’”
