Phenomenal Hair and Nail Salon Service in 28467

During our visit to Calabash, North Carolina, a friend of mine went to the Fringe Salon & Spa for a hair cut and color. Their master stylist/colorist, Peter, was professional, yet friendly, and took his time to ensure my friend enjoyed her hair treatment experience. Sally came out of the appointment feeling pampered and looking wonderful. She really did look great.

Sally from Tidelines Fabrics & Home Decor in Shallotte, NC has been going to the Fringe Salon and Spa since she and her husband moved into the area and highly recommends this salon. As her friend, I am safe in telling you that she wouldn't continually return if she didn't like the staff or the service she receives. There are just too many other businesses out there to stick around if you aren't satisfied.

      Hi Michelle, Nice compilation of information on Calabash businesses. I lived there for about 10 years and now live nearby in SC. I have a lens on Calabash as well - I added you to the lensroll so that people who view my site will get a link to yours... look forward to more information you add here.
