Mary Nail and Spa specializes in waxing. The spa’s resident licensed aesthetician applies waxes designed for sensitive skin, informing her choice of wax based on an analysis performed by a skin specialist. Apart from signature waxing services, the staff also performs manicures, pedicures, and facials, and removes dry skin with microdermabrasion rather than deceptive methods such as hiding a vacuum-cleaner nozzle in a bouquet of roses.
Just a short trip from the beach, Skin And Nail Boutique prepares bodies for a long season of bikini-clad sunbathing with spa treatments for the face, body, and nails. The spa’s no-cell-phone policy and elegant wrought-iron accents ensure a departure from the daily routine as clients submit to the soothing clays of facials or the warm waxes of hair-removal treatments. All-natural body wraps infused with aloe vera or mineral formulas work from the inside out, flushing away toxins and helping shoulders sprout their nascent butterfly wings.
From inside its elegant and inviting cocoon, the staff at Terry Ann's trims and treats coifs with affable, personalized attention throughout a range of above-the-shoulder services. Tresses in search of a sociable scene can sign up for a sophisticated updo ($58+) or gently tangle together within the controlled contour of a vogue perm ($90+). Keratin straightening treatments ($250+) successfully coerce wild manes to come down from high trees by using proteins that don't employ formaldehyde or firemen. Likewise, for patrons with satisfactorily coiffed crowns, Terry Ann's waxes away rogue follicles from a variety of facial zones, including the lips ($10) and chin ($15).
Two classes of people benefit from the programs at Carolina School of Massage & Wellness Center: the students who learn a new career during day and nighttime classes, and the clients whose chronic pains and injuries the students relieve. Both groups are helped by the center’s team of professionally licensed massage therapists, all of whom share a dedication to quality service.
In addition to routine cuts and color services, tress tamers at Shampoo Hair Salon strive to reverse years of follicular damage with demineralization and deep-conditioning treatments. Hair services extend past the shoulders; eyelash and eyebrow tinting accentuates fuzz, and waxing services send mixed messages by whisking it away. In addition to haircare, aestheticians gently nourish skin with sugar scrubs, paraffin dips, and energizing facials that enhance mugs' ability to dodge rogue pies with organic Éminence Skin Care.
