Not far from the bubbling waters of Fountain Center's outdoor fountain sits the entrance to Fountain Spa, a boutique day spa helmed by massage therapist Vicki Economou. The quiet courtyard outside serves as a fitting prelude to each spa experience, during which Vicki’s team of massage therapists and beauty technicians encourage whole-body wellness with holistic treatments and natural products.
Small batches of ilike organic skin care products draw their potency from blended fruits and veggies; the spa’s aesthetician calls upon these naturally derived concoctions during four facials that focus on deep cleansing, exfoliation, hydration, and overall pampering. Similarly, locally sourced Nourish bath products and Savannah Bee Company products fuel mani-pedis, body wraps, and massages. Massages, which are available in holistic modalities can also be enhanced with aromatherapy, bamboo sticks, hot stones.
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.

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.

Meanwhile, expert nail technicians dress fingers with a variety of paw-prettying embellishments, such as silk wraps, no-chip shellac, and purple Ring Pops.
Fifth Avenue Salon’s pack of highly trained stylists smoothes wayward strands with Keratin Complex treatments. Both procedures use keratin protein to naturally promote stronger, silkier, and healthier hair, emancipating manes from the ghosts of frizzies past. Hair magicians whip blow-dryers from their hip holsters to administer a one-hour Keratin Complex express blow-out, smoothing tresses by the end of lunch break, or dismiss stale perms with the Keratin Complex smoothing system treatment, a three-hour overhaul that uses curling irons and other methods to thoroughly glossify hair. Results often last 6–8 months, depending on the client’s hair type and whether or not the client accepts Frankenstein's marriage proposal.
