Planet Beach is a futuristic relaxation station where craftily engineered tanning beds carefully administer helpful UV rays to impart color to customer epidermises. Machines are carefully designed to harness the powers of the robot sun, which makes them the ultimate experts and keeps them from developing the ability to cry. A month of unlimited use of Planet Beach's nine beds, including VIP- and Platinum-level standup and horizontal tanning beds, provides ample opportunities for glowing, bronzing, and photoskinthesis.
Having begun as a single tanning shop in Greenville during the autumn of 1990, Ultratan has since blossomed into more than 70 locations throughout the Carolinas and Georgia due to its popularity and commitment to quality service. Over the years, the collection of spas has accumulated numerous awards such as Best Tanning Salon from the Daily Gamecock for providing the best equipment in both tanning beds and spray-tan technology. As a member of the International Smart Tan Network, its commitment to safe tans also encompasses a passion for keeping their customers educated about responsible tanning routines and never tanning without a helmet.
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.
Products from CHI, Design Essentials, Nairobi Professional, and Paul Mitchell sit in the cabinets at Elegante' Hair Studio, waiting to fulfill their destiny by nourishing and styling hair. In the hands of three stylists with more than 35 years of combined experience, the hair elixirs facilitate shampoos, haircuts, and styles, in addition to color services and relaxer treatments. Haircare products aren't the only beauty potions onsite, however—nail polishes join the fray, promoting digit splendor during the salon's manicures and pedicures.
A full-length window casts a slanted rectangle of light across the salon's exposed brick and a decorative print of the Eiffel Tower. Amid these cozy accents, skilled stylist Erika Krauze manufactures sleek new hairstyles with products by Keune and J Beverly Hills. Erika's consultations revolve around communication, so a new cut and color may be tailored to the client's unique face shape, personality, and lifestyle. Waxing services are also available.
Inside Hair and Nails by Design's homey environs is an expectedly cozy nail station, where technician Shine performs everything from traditional manicures to spa pedicures with hot-stone massage. Even without the stones, it's easy to relax in the leather massage chair as Ramona buffs and moisturizes achy feet during regular pedicures. Other add-ons include paraffin dips and Shellac polish that resists chipping or rusting for up to two weeks.
