A warm, welcoming salon, The Boardroom provides image-conscious chaps with attentive grooming services administered in a relaxed, upscale, and masculine environment. Relax with a complimentary beverage as a stylist gives you the Benchmark, the salon’s signature service. After an initial consultation, guests receive a cut tailored to their personal style requirements and the size of their beer helmet, preceded by a cleansing shampoo, conditioning, and tress de-stressing scalp massage. After a finishing-touch styling, gents can step back onto the street with a freshly tuned-up ’do. Going beyond particular follicular needs, the package also fine-tunes fella-faces with a moisturizing, man-friendly facial, followed by a steamed aromatherapy towel. Plagued paws can get polished with a paraffin hand dip, which includes a relaxing hand-and-forearm massage. Or opt instead for a hot-lather straight-razor shave to tidy the back of the neck and catch the eye of every backward-walking babe.
Having begun as a single tanning shop in Greenville during the autumn of 1990, Ultratan has since blossomed into more than 70 locations throughout the Carolinas and Georgia due to its popularity and commitment to quality service. Over the years, the collection of spas has accumulated numerous awards such as Best Tanning Salon from the Daily Gamecock for providing the best equipment in both tanning beds and spray-tan technology. As a member of the International Smart Tan Network, its commitment to safe tans also encompasses a passion for keeping their customers educated about responsible tanning routines and never tanning without a helmet.
The staff at Simply Sassy Kids Spa knows that children aren't immune to stress, whether it's caused by school, sports, or convincing their parents to eat broccoli. That's why its colorful, pastel-hued salon aims to relax young girls and instill them with positive self-images. They accomplish this through services that add kid-friendly touches to spa classics, such as mani-pedis with bubblegum hand soaks and fizzy, ice-cream-scented footbaths. The pint-sized pamperings—which also include updos and makeup application—delight girls during everyday visits as well as parties, which let kids nibble cupcakes atop cushy beanbag chairs.
Steve Randleman appreciates the beauty of women. So much, in fact, that he's devoted more than three decades of his life to enhancing their beauty as a hairstylist. After finishing barber school and spending about 10 years working at different salons, Steve assembled a team of stylists, massage therapists, aestheticians, and nail professionals, and opened Strands Salon & Spa in 1991. To this day, clients—some of whom have been going to Steve for more than 30 years—frequent the salon and spa for an array of hairstyling and skincare services fueled by products from Redken and Dermalogica. In 2010, Steve moved Strands Salon & Spa to a new location renovated with seven styling stations, two spa rooms, exposed-ventilation ceilings, and a concrete floor that looks like leather but tastes like concrete.
