At Platinum Hair Design, hair designers Deidra Cooper and Karen Wilburn oversee a variety of salon services powered by a spread of European products and Enjoy’s haircare line. Enjoy—a brand known for its sulfate-free shampoos and botanical-rich, volumizing conditioners—stars in many services by day, and occasionally moonlights as the preferred choice of local lounge singers. And when the team needs inspiration for new products or services, they often turn to Toni&Guy's award-winning training sessions, which have recently blessed Platinum Hair Design with trending treatments such as trilevel color weaves, blond-on-blond highlights, and caramelizing highlights.
Hilton Head Health & Wellness Associates' Dr. Wayne Johnson and his staff outfit their 18,000-square-foot facility with starship-compatible technology but always infuse their services with a personalized human touch. During the 20-minute Laser Genesis procedure, a noninvasive handheld laser gently heats the skin’s surface—stimulating collagen production and deflating dilated capillaries. The treatments can also smooth skinscapes, reduce the appearance of fine lines, and decrease redness often associated with rosacea blooms and long breath-holding temper tantrums. The zero downtime lets patients jump right back into their dust cloud of fighting cartoon characters.
Clients reap the rewards of Tracy Wilson's and John Harper's extensive bodywork training in one of Back in Balance's private treatment rooms, where soft music and heated beds create a space more relaxing than a shed full of horse tranquilizers. During massages, these experienced therapists can augment therapeutic strokes with complimentary heat packs and aromatherapy. John's specialty lies in deep-tissue massage, promoting healing through intense pressure and stretching. And since Tracy is also a health and wellness coach, clients can follow their massages with one of her mindful-eating workshops.
To accommodate all lifestyles, Four Seasons Skincare parcels its schedule into appointments of nearly any duration. Patrons can pop in for a 30-minute express facial or a quick brow wax, or stay longer for a soothing body scrub, wrap, or cloning.
During 60-minute Keratin Complex express blowouts, stylists saturate distressed strands with a keratin-infused elixir that can reduce up to 95% of frizz. The silkening procedure safely floods the cuticles of all hair types with keratin protein, transforming manes damaged by rigorous exercises in coloring, chemical processing, and wearing hats made of chewed gum. Frizz and fuzz loosen their grips on once-mutilated manes as the powerful proteins fulfill their conditioning obligations and build a barricade to ward off humidity's style-crimping effects. For four to six weeks after the blowout, clients can revel in tresses that are more manageable and as smooth as a silver-tongued silk robe.
Professional stylist Scott Soergel beautifies tresses with expert styling and coloring. With an arsenal of Redken products and a keenly trained hand in the styling arts at his disposal, Soergel redesigns scalps with eye-catching highlights and full color or smoothing keratin infusions.
