Jeanell Johnson and her fellow stylists at Kings & Queens Barber Shop trim tresses for both men and women. While pruning male coifs, the team creates smooth fades and tidy beards. They can also etch 'dos with designs ranging from zig-zag patterns to maps of the interstate highway system. In addition to creating on-trend styles for women, the crew also performs pampering treatments such as facials and brow shaping.
Stylist Niccole Quello, a graduate of the Butte Academy of Beauty Culture, crafts classic and trendy 'dos in the luxurious confines of Sophisticate Salon. After a warm welcome from Niccole, clients describe their desired look. Before the cut, skilled hands massage scalps with shampoo to remove any traces from first-grade peanut-butter fights. The stylist then snips locks to perfection and tames, teases, or tricks tresses into the clients' style of choice. During the partial foil highlights, Niccole paints select strands before tucking them into foils to emerge as glittering thread. Inside the studio, ornate mirrors reflect flower arrangements and pink walls while hair products peek from dark wood displays and then recede, frightened by their shadows.
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.
