Named Mauldin’s Best New Business in 2011 by readers of Mauldin Patch, Everyday Glamour Girl fosters clearer complexions and younger looks with soothing skincare treatments. Led by owner and head aesthetician Elle Kersey, the staff rejuvenates skin with facials and peels, removes unwanted hair with waxing services, and tightens skin to keep skeletons from running loose on Halloween. The experts also work together with clients to develop skincare regimens they can continue at home, helping them maintain a radiant complexion between visits.
Southern Stranz Salon's professional stylists expertly gussy up manes and nails, drawing from a roster of beautifying services. Each aesthetic technician aims to be thoughtful and courteous while coloring tresses, smoothing out crinkled strands, or fishing out spatulas from tangled hairdos. Striking black shelves punctuate the salon's gray walls, and fire-engine-red pillars and furnishings contrast the neutral color palette. A custom-made painting perches above the waiting area, where wicker seats gather around a zebra-print rug.
The experienced staff at Mauldin Massage & Day Spa takes care of guests with a varied slate of spa services. Their massage therapy menu includes hot stone and neuromuscular modalities, as well as one tailored for those afflicted by fibromyalgia. They also perform several specialty facials, such as the deluxe spa version that includes a consultation, exfoliation, and application of a steamed towel kept extra steamy over an angry cartoon character's head.
The Center of Bliss, LLC, helps clients achieve peace of mind and body by offering a holistic health plan. Founder Katie Edwards heads a team of acupuncturists and herbalists who use traditional Chinese medicine to keep bodies healthy and in balance. Ashtanga yoga classes help clients foster a deeper connection to their own bodies and breathing, and a massage therapist soothes stress in connective tissues.
The true passion of the aestheticians of Glamour Obsession Beauty Studio, which is a member of Associated Skin Care Professionals, lies in luxuriating bodies with anti-aging facials and nourishing therapies. The studio's experienced beauty techs believe that taking care of the body's largest organ is not an indulgence but, rather, a necessary component of overall health and well-being. Aside from nurturing the human husk, the aestheticians can enhance its natural beauty with lush lash extensions, artful makeup applications, and waxing services proven to be more effective for hair removal than fire or wishing.
