Skin cancer changes a person. Luckily for DeAnne Corley, only the discovery of precancerous cells was needed for her to divest herself of her sunbathing habits and instill in her a desire to warn others about the dangers of sun exposure. Her passion resulted in a complete diversion in her career trajectory, leaving her previous job to open a mobile and salon-based spray-tanning service that gives patrons a sultry glow without putting their health or style at risk.
Her trained tan techs now man the private treatment rooms inside Blades of Columbia Salon and deliver treatments to homes, offices, or surprise pool parties. Staffers wield a tightly controlled stream of DHA tanning solution, spending 15 to 20 minutes spraying bodily facades to ensure an even, streak-free bronzing. Once tans have set, patrons can show off summery hues that last 7 to 10 days, or opt to partake of one of the salon’s natural nail care or enhancement treatments that groom hands without enduring the tedium of sandpaper gloves.
Nails, featuring Shellac, a gel polish for your natural nails, that lasts 10-14 days with no chipping! Kristy also offers Holistic Dr. Hauschka facials, Novalash eyelash extensions and is a licensed nationally certified massage therapist specializing in hot stone massage. Luxury pedicures, manicures always available.
The experienced staff at Studio Allure smooth and soothe bodies from tresses to toes. A licensed massage therapist treats tired physiques to a one-hour Swedish massage that will improve circulation and send you into a subdued state of relaxation. Mollycoddled muscle fibers and slacked sinews will release all their pent-up tension and old tax receipts.
Blades of Columbia Salon & Day Spa's team of beauty professionals revamp clients' hair and skin with an array of services. Natural-glow spray tans bronze bodies without harmful UV rays, and customized deep-cleansing facials target specific skin concerns, such as too much oil or not enough sugar in your sweat. Stylists care for hair with products cooked up by Paul Mitchell and Wella, and expert brow shapers tame bushy furrows with the ancient art of threading. Because beauty generally comes from within, massage therapists tame stress and assuage aches with a range of strokes and kneads.

With 20+ years of experience in the industry, tanning experts at Carolina Tan Factory do more than just offer UV and sunless-tanning services at both Carolina Tan Factory locations. They also work to create a comfortable tanning experience for her clients. Tropical-themed décor and friendly staffers greet guests as they step into either highly sanitized salon. Back in the private tanning room, fresh, fluffy towels await clients’ arrivals before they slip into a Ergoline or Sun Industries UV tanning bed or step into a MysticTan Sunless Booth. UV beds ensure even tans, since the bulbs are regularly replaced after 50% usage, and an array of lotions and bronzers wait on hand to protect skin and help ensure anything from a "just spent the day at the beach" tan to a "just spent three months organic farming on Mars" glow. And to add convenience to each client's experience, Carolina Tan Factory's remain open seven days a week and offer early morning and evening hours.
