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.
All About Me corrals a salon, a spa, and a boutique in its fetching space, characterized by pitched ceilings and wrought-iron chandeliers. Decorated with a soft color palette and fresh flowers, the spa wraps customers in an oasis of comfort on the aquatic enclave of Hilton Head Island. Technicians nurture nails while guests kick back, form kick lines at manicure stations, or recline on plush, massaging pedicure chairs. Meanwhile, the team of seasoned stylists conscripts high-quality Goldwell, TIGI, and Pureology hair products.
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.
P'Zazz Hair & Nail Studio's staff performs a vast suite of spa and salon services for men and women, helping to keep hair and nails in showroom shape. While stylists perform exacting snips and deliver colorful highlights to hair, aestheticians cleanse faces with customized facials and peels. Meanwhile, expert nail technicians dress fingers with a variety of paw-prettying embellishments, such as silk wraps, no-chip shellac, and purple Ring Pops.
With the dexterity of sailors securing their ships to shore, the stylists of Tara’s at Moss Creek weave clients' hair into intricate knots and patterns. The unique designs are popular among brides-to-be, so the team also performs prewedding day services that allow brides and bridal parties to get a glimpse of the final product with plenty of time to make changes.
In addition to wedding-day updos, the full-service salon offers waxing services, mani-pedis, and hair services for both men and women. To offer their clients a more comprehensive service menu, they also perform advanced treatments such as keratin protein applications, which control frizz—even in humid climates—for up to six months or six encounters with an electric eel.
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.
