Spas & Salons
Experience a tranquil getaway at one of the many salons and spas in Columbia. Our good old-fashioned kindness and heart for hospitality mean you’ll feel pampered and relaxed wherever you go.
The Vista, Columbia’s bustling arts and entertainment hub, has quiet escapes for city dwellers and savvy travelers alike. You can easily spend the day at Pura, which offers a variety of services from massages and facials to cosmetic injections and laser hair removal. If you’re looking to treat yourself last-minute, try OCCO Luxury Spa. They accept walk-ins for manicures, pedicures, facials, and massages.
You’ll also find luxurious spas in unexpected places, like Palmetto Health Hospital’s Parkridge campus. Relax in the Zen-inspired lounge at the hospital’s Healing Waters Spa. With a Medical Director on staff, the spa offers a range of services, including facials, massage therapy, aesthetic procedures, and cosmetic surgery.
Pair your pampering with some retail therapy by whiling away a few hours at the shops along Devine Street. Drop your bags and relax your shoulders with a personalized massage at StaceyO Studio. Or head to Forest Acres and enjoy a stroll around Trenholm Plaza. Stop at Urban Nirvana salon for a haircut and style, or try their spa for a hot stone massage or waxing service (in record time, mind you). Minutes down the road, you’ll find Eva Skin Care, another full-service salon nestled along Forest Drive. Make your eyes pop with eyelash extensions. Pair your lash application with a mani-pedi, and be out of the door in an hour, ready to dazzle and dine at one of the many vibrant restaurants in the area, like Tazza Kitchen, Tombo Grille, or Pasta Fresca.
A number of great options are also located across the Gervais Street bridge. Try cupping therapy, relieve your migraine, or gift a student relief package for your favorite college student at Spa 131 on State Street. Travel on to Cayce and visit Natural Glow Spray Tan. This spot lives up to its name—you’ll come home looking like you’ve been to the beach.
Whether you’re looking to treat yourself during a well-earned vacation, after a long legislative week, or once your finals are turned in, there’s a place to slow down, relax, and breathe a sigh of relief in Columbia.
