You Do You, Boo: Treat Yourself in Columbia SC
Friday, January 4, 2019 2:00 PM by Dayna Cantelmi
From massages, manicures, a blowout and more to a great glass of wine or a sinful dessert, there are plenty of ways to rejuvenate and live your best life in Columbia SC.
Ease your aching muscles with a custom, deep tissue or hot stone massage, give your lashes some lift and your nails some new sheen, revive your skin with a facial or enjoy a bit of each with a spa package at OCCO. You’ll feel like a million bucks in no time.
This chic salon in the Vista is a glam girl’s paradise. Get ready here for a night out on the town. Throw a fierce pop of color on your nails, get your hair blown out, braided or arranged in a sassy updo, enhance your glow with an airbrush tan and try a bold new makeup look, all while sipping on some bubbly. Oh, and it’s located right next to Marble Slab, so that’s just like a bonus.
Fellas, don’t think we’ve forgotten about you! Pop in to Frank’s Gentlemen’s Salon in the Vista, where you’ll be welcomed with a complimentary beer or bourbon. Then, treat yourself to a mani/pedi, a facial, a beard facial (yes, that’s a thing), straight razor shave or a shoe shine to come out looking and feeling your best, dapper self.
Such a great day to be at Frank's!! Come by and see me for two complimentary beverages (coke products, coffee, water and a selection of alcoholic beverages), a shoulder and neck massage, and scalp massage with your service.💈💈✂️✂️✂️ #barbershopconnect #barbershop #barberswag #barberbabe #barbernation #barbersareus #barberconnect #straightrazor #layriteofficial #jackblack #euforahero #eufora
There’s just something about a fresh manicure and pedicure that make you feel ready to take on the world. Stop by sleek new salon, The Nail Barre, in Rosewood for the perfect girls’ day out. Or, bring your beau and introduce him to the glory of the “MAN-icure.”
Experience pure bliss with an array of heavenly body scrubs, wraps and massages available at Urban Nirvana. With options like the Prenatal or Anxiety Relief massages and the invigorating Body Buzz coffee scrub, there’s something for everyone and both your body and brain will thank you.
Not only can you shop for all the bath and beauty products your heart desires at POUT on Devine Street, but they also have a team of trained professionals on hand offering a myriad of services. From Hydrafacials and waxing to tanning and makeup, there’s next to nothing they can’t do to add a little dazzle to your day.
Indulge in a dining experience that will have you savoring every single sip and bite at Lula Drake on Main Street. Start by selecting a glass (or bottle, heyyy) of wine that speaks to you from the masterfully-curated menu. Then pair it with some seriously tasty eats like the handmade pasta or the Nutella crepe. Pro tip: come on a Wednesday to take advantage of the weekly Grilled Cheese Wednesday special, featuring a different gourmet creation each time. A meal fit for the royalty you are.
Say YES to dessert! Decadence is the name of the game at Kaminsky’s in the Vista, so grab a fork and dig in to a mountainous layer cake or light-as-air mousse cake (it’s up to you whether or not you want to share). Or, stop by for a nightcap, be it one of their legendary milkshakes or an Irish coffee beverage. You’ll wonder why you don’t do this more often.
Drip on Main
Take the time to slow down in the morning and truly enjoy your start to the day at Drip on Main Street. The rose cardamom latte tastes downright luxurious and the patio seating allows you to soak up the sun while watching the rest of the world hustle and bustle on by. Take advantage of the Richland Library short story dispenser on site for some quick reading material to supplement your experience and have you appreciating the simple things in life.
