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.
Claudia's aesthetician training began miles away from Charleston in her native country of Brazil, where she studied Health Education at Anhembi University and worked at spas throughout S?o Paulo. She brings her firsthand expertise in Brazilian waxing and beauty treatments to each of her five spas, administering a variety of waxing services along with various body treatments, facials, endermologie treatments, and massages. She and her fellow aestheticians also offer threading and sugaring treatments that remove hair without relying on wax. Her passions have driven her to open a network of spas located in North Charleston, James Island, Mt. Pleasant, Summerville, and Columbia.

Nolas Salon boasts seasoned stylists who sculpt and maintain head hedges with an array of salon services. Coif curation begins with a thorough sudsing and scalp massage before shear-wielding artists trim, sculpt, and blow-dry hairscapes. A complimentary glass of wine can enhance the haircut experience, just as a beer improves the lawn-mowing experience.
Twenty years ago, Laurie Premo opened Premo's Barber • Spa as a modest, one-chair barbershop adjoining her home in New York State. Her business has since traveled south and expanded to include a private treatment room with a full menu of massage and spa services.
Antique hair dryers now hang over plush couches in the spa’s lobby, giving first-time visitors a hint of Laurie’s eclectic tastes. If that weren’t enough, an antique wooden workstation embedded with a granite sink completes the charm as Laurie grasps shears and trims locks or beards. Across the salon, none other than Laurie's daughter, Justine—a licensed massage therapist with practice in Eastern and Western modalities—eradicates muscle knots and soothes necks sore from stretching for fruit on out-of-reach trees.
