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.
Pure Escape Resort?s certified skincare professionals nurture faces and bodies with treatments that make use of gentle formulations and infusions of natural ingredients such as fruit and seaweed. Pores get their USDA-recommended four servings of fruit a day with a pumpkin, blueberry, or cranberry facial, and a microdermabrasion treatment momentarily blings out skin with tiny crystals that work to reduce the appearance of fine lines, sun damage, and acne scarring. Along with their many skincare services?all of which are noninvasive and thus require no post-treatment downtime?the staff relaxes and beautifies bodies with massages, waxing, and tinting for the lashes and brows.
Armed with current techniques for properly maintaining noggin lawns, Regis Salon’s network of stores keeps clients’ hair in order as dictated by the latest trends. Within this caravan of hair bazaars, customers’ wild manes are tamed by skillful stylists; use your Groupon toward a shampoo, cut, and blow-dry, and lean back and dream of breakdancing Stay Puft Marshmallow Men as a stylist carefully cleanses hair with shampoo and conditioner and then clips it into stylish head hedges that beautifully complement scalp-garden pathways. Afterward, the hair that’s left behind will receive a loving blow-dry for a style that gleams and glitters like a ruby-encrusted bowling ball. During the treatment, stylists offer helpful tips and tricks to help clients care for hair at home. If a shampoo and cut isn't your cup of sports drink, put your Groupon toward the cost of another service, such as hair coloring (starting at $52), highlights (starting at $75), or a perm (starting at $75).

Q&A with Jennifer Jordan-collins, Licensed Massage Therapist
Do you agree with the phrase "beauty is on the inside?" Why or why not?
Absolutely. People are beautiful by how they treat others. Not how they appear.
Do you use any products or brands you're particularly proud of? What makes them uniquely effective?
We use cream (unless it is a hot-stone massage). This will not leave our customers feeling oily after a massage. They can go where ever they want after the appointment without having to stop at home first.
What is the best reaction you?ve ever gotten from a client?
I had a gentleman who had surgery years ago. He had feeling in his toes, but always had a tingling sensation in them. He said that since his massage, he no longer has that feeling.
Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
Our massages are a full hour on the table. We do not take away time for paperwork or the process of getting on/off the table.
Hair can easily style itself. But because it stubbornly refuses to, stylist Mandi Jessee picks up the slack with a diverse array of cut and color treatments. Clients may also request a frizz-reducing keratin treatment to simplify styling, or commemorate a special occasion with a perm, updo, or full-head shave.
The talented staff at Blessed Hands Salon transforms nondescript hairstyles into eye-catching coiffures with elaborate braids, natural hairstyling, and hair extensions that last up to two years. They also increase clients' aesthetic value with makeup application and eyelash extensions.
