During 60-minute Keratin Complex express blowouts, stylists saturate distressed strands with a keratin-infused elixir that can reduce up to 95% of frizz. The silkening procedure safely floods the cuticles of all hair types with keratin protein, transforming manes damaged by rigorous exercises in coloring, chemical processing, and wearing hats made of chewed gum. Frizz and fuzz loosen their grips on once-mutilated manes as the powerful proteins fulfill their conditioning obligations and build a barricade to ward off humidity's style-crimping effects. For four to six weeks after the blowout, clients can revel in tresses that are more manageable and as smooth as a silver-tongued silk robe.
At Platinum Hair Design, hair designers Deidra Cooper and Karen Wilburn oversee a variety of salon services powered by a spread of European products and Enjoy’s haircare line. Enjoy—a brand known for its sulfate-free shampoos and botanical-rich, volumizing conditioners—stars in many services by day, and occasionally moonlights as the preferred choice of local lounge singers. And when the team needs inspiration for new products or services, they often turn to Toni&Guy's award-winning training sessions, which have recently blessed Platinum Hair Design with trending treatments such as trilevel color weaves, blond-on-blond highlights, and caramelizing highlights.
Fifth Avenue Salon’s pack of highly trained stylists smoothes wayward strands with Keratin Complex treatments. Both procedures use keratin protein to naturally promote stronger, silkier, and healthier hair, emancipating manes from the ghosts of frizzies past. Hair magicians whip blow-dryers from their hip holsters to administer a one-hour Keratin Complex express blow-out, smoothing tresses by the end of lunch break, or dismiss stale perms with the Keratin Complex smoothing system treatment, a three-hour overhaul that uses curling irons and other methods to thoroughly glossify hair. Results often last 6–8 months, depending on the client’s hair type and whether or not the client accepts Frankenstein's marriage proposal.
Hilton Head Health & Wellness Associates' Dr. Wayne Johnson and his staff outfit their 18,000-square-foot facility with starship-compatible technology but always infuse their services with a personalized human touch. During the 20-minute Laser Genesis procedure, a noninvasive handheld laser gently heats the skin’s surface—stimulating collagen production and deflating dilated capillaries. The treatments can also smooth skinscapes, reduce the appearance of fine lines, and decrease redness often associated with rosacea blooms and long breath-holding temper tantrums. The zero downtime lets patients jump right back into their dust cloud of fighting cartoon characters.
With the dexterity of sailors securing their ships to shore, the stylists of Tara’s at Moss Creek weave clients' hair into intricate knots and patterns. The unique designs are popular among brides-to-be, so the team also performs prewedding day services that allow brides and bridal parties to get a glimpse of the final product with plenty of time to make changes.
In addition to wedding-day updos, the full-service salon offers waxing services, mani-pedis, and hair services for both men and women. To offer their clients a more comprehensive service menu, they also perform advanced treatments such as keratin protein applications, which control frizz—even in humid climates—for up to six months or six encounters with an electric eel.
