A Greenville hairstylist for more than six years, Morgan Blackwell Williams of Hair Creations by Morgan prides herself on creating enduring associations with each of her clients. Morgan ensures her clippers are up-to-date by participating in yearly continuing-education classes, augmenting her list of classic services—such as cuts, highlights, and color treatments—with the latest in tress trends, including feather extensions and Pop Rocks hairnets. Aided by her licensed assistant, Ashleigh Blackwell, the skilled stylist metamorphoses straight locks with permanent and semipermanent texture waves and unwinds corkscrews with formaldehyde-free keratin treatments. In addition to grownup coiffures, Morgan tends to kids' ’dos and infant's first cuts, giving tots the chance to weigh in on part placement and how sporting a mohawk puts them at a great disadvantage during games of duck, duck, goose.
Perhaps it was the warm, friendly service. Or maybe it was the use of skincare products by Aveda. No matter the catalyst, the fact remains that Day Spa 12 West Stone has flourished into a full-fledged spa since starting as a modest salon in 1980. Today, visitors can get pampered and hide from peeping feds for a whole day, enjoying a massage in a softly lit aromatherapy room and relishing a salt glow treatment or a mani-pedi before lunch. When owner Carol McAlister takes a break from soothing her clients into states of bliss, she pours time into her second passion, no-kill animal shelter H.A.R.P.
Nails by Jodie, ensconced within a Gone with the Wind–themed salon, funnels elegant Southern flair into phalanges with a luxurious manicure and pedicure. Helmed by an experienced nail technician, a battalion of nail sergeants hones upper and lower sets of decadigits with a cuticle cleanup, nail trimming, and shaping, creating ideal polishing palettes or a convenient spot to inscribe a Social Security number. Hands then dive into a vat of skin-smoothing paraffin wax, which seals in moisture and fashions a sleek surface for the hand and arm massage. Conversely, ped pamperings include a layering of hot towels onto leg or pogo-stick appendages, with the addition of a hot-stone leg and foot massage to melt away any remaining stress.
Stacy McCain, help patients to maintain healthy, pain-free lives with non-invasive chiropractic care. Sufferers of stiffness, low back pain, or migraine headaches may reap the benefits of thorough chiropractic examinations, which send the doctors sleuthing over spinalscapes in search of bulging disks and stuck-on “Kick Me” signs. The treatments emphasize progressive rehabilitation, a method which allows doctor and patient to work together to track the effectiveness of treatments.

Exercise is challenging, and people frequently give up on their fitness routines. How do you keep clients motivated?
I continue to support students even when they give up on themselves because I don't give up on them. I'm their biggest cheerleader.
Do you run your gym according to a particular exercise philosophy?
Yoga is non-competitive. The benefits come from patience, acceptance, compassion, non- judgement and calm presence. We encourage this attitude in every class.
Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
These classes are gentle and appropriate for almost every body. Expect to relax your mind and release tension from your body. Classes are in a comfortable wellness center and kept small for more individualized attention.
