With their fleet of Robinson R22 utility helicopters, the aviators at Charleston Helicopters take joy in breaking the laws of gravity. They whisk passengers high above Charleston for flight lessons and photo tours, and while passing over the harbor, guests can snap shots of the Battery, Shem Creek, and various forts. Viewers may also zoom over the Charleston skyline to admire buildings soaked in red-and-orange sunsets and the flickering lights of surrounding towns. Many of Charleston Helicopters's tours invite guests to toast airborne triumphs upon landing with champagne, instilling an extra sense of victory without having to drag race passing geese.
Part of the venerable Paul Mitchell network, the Charleston outpost of Paul Mitchell the School features stylish confines staffed by a squad of student coiffure-carvers and professional instructors. While all services performed by students are under the direct supervision of a licensed instructor of pulchritude, Paul Mitchell students style a wide array of hair and nail treatments, creating cute cuts ($10–$15) and up-styles ($20–$25+) or applying chemical relaxers to tame tendrils ($35–$40+). A natural manicure ($10–$15) clips, trims, and buffs nails to a polished sheen, and a pedicure ($20–$25) ensures that toes stay fashionable while trotting in summer sandals or high-stepping across hot coals at backyard luaus.
CTK Fitness’s troupe of certified health heroes connects consistent workouts to improved eating habits to help clients lose weight and achieve fitness goals. Each 60-minute boot-camp class begins with a gentle warm-up to loosen limbs from atrophic tendencies before enlisting bodies in a fast-paced circuit-training routine, including stations for weight training, cardio, and acceptable bed making. Focused on treating bodies inside and out, CTK complements fitness classes with specially designed eating plans. A certified trainer works with individual svelte seekers to create a preplanned menu and nurture corporeal vessels with either 1,200–1,500 healthful calories per day or one loving grandmother to tuck them in at night.
