Improve Your Selfies, Come See Us.

Welcome to RPS of 5 Points!

outdoor-sign-rpsRock Paper Scissors is nestled in the bustling Five Points area of downtown Columbia, South Carolina. We believe in the philosophy of creating an organic look fused with today’s trends fitting to each client’s personality & lifestyle. With a beautiful, eclectic, & comfortable atmosphere, Rock Paper Scissors is a salon to come to for relaxation, leaving you feeling even more gorgeous than when you walked in.Our team of stylists are all about providing the ultimate Rock Paper Scissors experience to every guest, every single time.

At Rock Paper Scissors, we believe that great hair comes with using stellar performing products. We are proud to carry AG Hair Cosmetics hair care & styling products. AG is mostly inspired by simplicity and confidence. While we look to magazines and runway shows for hair trends, it’s the girl reading the magazine that we are drawn to and the effortless style we see on the street outside the show that truly fascinates us.

By choosing simple natural ingredients that work – we are giving you the results to be confident about your hair and ultimately yourself. To us here at RPS, nothing is more beautiful.

We also proudly carry Schwarzkopf Professional hair color, hair care, & styling products. Schwarzkopf is a trusted luxury line made to give our clients the ultimate pampering experience. Schwarzkopf has a passion for creating beautiful hair and this is reflected in each one of their products, & we here at RPS believe the same.

Again, thank you for checking out Rock Paper Scissors! We look forward to serving our Soda City community! Be sure to check out our Instagram @rps5points as well to keep up with all of the happenings at RPS!
