A dynamic team of 15 stylists, two aestheticians, and two massage therapists powers a diverse slate of services at Trilogy Salon and Spa. Besides basic cuts and color, stylists dole out treatments for a wide range of hair textures, from smoothing treatments for frizz to relaxers for Slinky hair. Stylist Brandy Ray sculpts, colors, and retextures strands, informed by five years of hair-beautifying experience. In private treatment rooms, other staff provide mani-pedis, facials, and reflexology, as well as ear candling and seaweed body wraps.
Modern lights hang from Studio 7's ceiling like glowing wineglasses, illuminating stainless-steel styling cabinets and floors the color of flowing honey. Amid these elegant accents, skilled stylists snip and highlight strands with cruelty-free products from Kevin Murphy. Guests can also request a mani-pedi or makeup application or nix unwanted hair with a swift wax.
Armed with current techniques for properly maintaining noggin lawns, Regis Salon’s network of stores keeps clients’ hair in order as dictated by the latest trends. Within this caravan of hair bazaars, customers’ wild manes are tamed by skillful stylists; use your Groupon toward a shampoo, cut, and blow-dry, and lean back and dream of breakdancing Stay Puft Marshmallow Men as a stylist carefully cleanses hair with shampoo and conditioner and then clips it into stylish head hedges that beautifully complement scalp-garden pathways. Afterward, the hair that’s left behind will receive a loving blow-dry for a style that gleams and glitters like a ruby-encrusted bowling ball. During the treatment, stylists offer helpful tips and tricks to help clients care for hair at home. If a shampoo and cut isn't your cup of sports drink, put your Groupon toward the cost of another service, such as hair coloring (starting at $52), highlights (starting at $75), or a perm (starting at $75).
Premier hairstylist Madison draws from 15 years of experience to play cupid as clients cultivate amorous feelings for their tresses. Her services help women fawn over strands that are free of split ends, decorated with feathers, or lengthened with Hotheads extensions. Madison’s highlights add dimension, and all-over color grants the kind of dramatic change a movie character experiences when they paint their brown hat blond. Aside from working with hair, she also removes it with waxing services that start at $10. She offers free consultation before services, during which she may use products from Moroccanoil and Coppola. The arena in which Madison performs her beauty sport isn’t as drab or sterile as many chain salons. A trio of plush, matching floral-patterned couches flanks a magazine-flecked coffee table in the waiting area, where the walls’ rich green hue is easy on the eyes. Arched doorways lead to the treatment room, where exposed brick conjures thoughts of an elegant house or a really sturdy tree fort.
At He & Me Hair Designs, owner David Roop has been tending to locks for over 30 years. The experienced stylist offers a variety of services, including color, conditioning, styling, and more. Recently he teamed up with his daughter to expand intoskincare services. The Treatment Room is the home of these skin treatments, sharing a homey brick building with He & Me Hair Designs. But instead of hairstyling, The Treatment Room's staff schedules skincare services. They perform facials to keep skin looking youthful, waxing sessions to keep skin looking smooth, and Aroma Glow body-polishing treatments to keep skin looking bronzed. For guests who really want to be pampered, the aestheticians also offer lymphatic drainage massages that promote detoxification and relaxation.
Viviana Polo has an eye for style and hands that brings that style to life, but her work often begins with her ears. That’s because she listens to each client’s desires and personal style goals before bringing their utterances to fruition with cuts, coloring, and formal styling. She specializes in many types of hair, from fine to thick, from straight to curly, and from short hair to locks long enough to lasso an octopus. From her station inside of Identity on Congaree, Viviana also offers keratin treatments and Japanese straighteners, makeup applications, and waxing.
