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.
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.
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.
David Michael Salon & Day Spa's aestheticians snip, straighten, and color tresses, relax bodies with spa services, and pamper mitten- and boot-fillers with manicures and pedicures. Beyond the day spa's brick exterior, wood floors and walls brightened with marigold, plum, and sage paint create a stylish, colorful stage where deft fingers can go to work. Massage keeps knotted muscles from tying themselves ever tighter, and strands of leg hair brandish tiny white flags of surrender as they flee from the efficient hands of waxing specialists. Joico, Aquage, Wella, and Dermalogica products gather on David Michael's shelves, ready to hop into an unsuspecting satchel and find a new home.
Colon cleansing, ionic footbaths, and reflexology foot massage form the foundation of Bridge to Wellness's detoxification program. Within the clinic's private treatment rooms and secret bat caves, practitioners meet with clients to understand their health history and goals before advising on a course of treatment. Through single-therapy or integrative care plans, they help clients overcome an array of maladies, such as disturbed digestion, gout, and sinus infection.
At Omega Laser and Skin Care, a staff of deft depilators harnesses the hair-hampering powers of cosmic light to annihilate rogue follicles on each client's overgrown area of choice. Laser light is a quick and effective method for removing unwanted hair. A long-pulse, high-energy laser emits a gentle beam of light that harmlessly passes through the skin and directly targets follicles, effectively banishing unwanted bristle and leaving less opportunity for saving food crumbs on your person. Unlike the lasers utilized by popular film hero and 2010 California gubernatorial hopeful Iron Man, these friendly beams are easy, comfortable, and treat hair follicles faster than other methods such as shaving, waxing, or electrolysis.
