The Salon of East Cobb
Owner and artistic director Charlie Blakely calls on more than 40 years of experience as she leads a team of expert stylists at The Salon of East Cobb. Not content to rest on her laurels, Blakely and her team undergo extensive, ongoing training to stay on top of the latest trends. To overhaul hairstyles, staff members rely on a Paul Mitchell color bar boasting more than 700 different hues—a polychromatic display to rival a Rainbow Brite statue constructed from crayons. Blakely recently attended a training session with Wayne Grund, whose vegan and organic Surface products nourish hair as well as the environment. In addition to its extensive menu of hair services, the salon pampers skin with complimentary paraffin dips and scalp massages. And on-staff aesthetician Ekaterina Shrontz dispenses helpful tips for applying makeup and removing adhesive muttonchops.
