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.
Beauticians breathe new life into overgrown locks and damaged nails inside of Capella’s Hair Studio and Nail Spa, a modern space tastefully decorated with clean exposed brick, wood trimming, and suspended globe light fixtures. The staff offers master cuts and a range of coloring services—from highlights to three- and four-dimensional processes—as well as blowouts and deep conditioning treatments. OPI nail polishes feature into the nail spa’s many manicures and pedicures, which may be elevated with an add-on such as a marine masque or hot stone massage.
Led by owner Gretchen Lampinen, Bella Bronze LLC’s aestheticians help clients get sun-kissed skin with tanning beds and airbrush tans. Monthly tan packages allow patrons to bask in the glow of unlimited visits to Super and Mega beds, which imbue skin with vitamin D packed neatly into beams of UV light much like multicolored fruit candy is neatly packed into rainbows. Skilled staffers also work to prettify frames with detoxifying body wraps and improve smiles with teeth-whitening services.
Jennifer Grimes, owner of Jennifer On Mane Salon, draws on more than 22 years of beauty industry experience to help men and women look their best. She and her team of skilled beauticians create hairstyles that range from traditional cuts to neon color. They also keep skin smooth with facial waxing and paint fingernails and toenails with long-lasting Shellac polish.
When discussing CT's Grillin & Chillin's atmosphere with reporters from Metromix, founder Mike Fletcher explained, "I didn't call it a sports bar on purpose." Mike wanted his eatery to be something more than just a sports bar— a place where his son could perform music, where his daughter could work during summer break, and where family and friends could gather over classic American dishes. So while the 12 televisions are often aglow with the latest sports games, on other nights, the bar hosts live music, karaoke, and trivia nights. Servers hoist plates of hearty sandwiches and spicy wings from the kitchen, while bartenders dole out mixed drinks and pour glasses from their selection of more than 25 draft brews.
Neon beer signs cast a nostalgic glow across the dark-red walls of the cavernous dining rooms, illuminating the large booths and wooden tables. A spacious area in the front of the venue is equipped with microphones and speakers, creating an ideal stage for open-mic nights or public declarations that calculus is boring, no matter what popular opinion says.
At Colour Bar, the hairstylists keep it simple: they help clients select the best cut and color, then show them how to maintain it. Along with coloring services, they also revamp locks with botox rejuvenation treatments and soothe scalps with hot towels and massages. Organic haircare products are available for both styling and coloring.
