With 19 locations conveniently sprinkled throughout the Atlanta area, Solar Dimensions helps clients get beach-ready regardless of their proximity to the shore. Each location features a fleet of UV tanning beds of varying brightness, all waiting to sun-kiss skin in 10–20 minutes and comfort clients with a built-in cooling apparatus or complimentary snuggles from a nearby penguin. Custom airbrush-tanning treatments or automated VersaSpa and MyMyst sunless-tanning sessions forgo light exposure and instead tone complexions with tinted mists that materialize in four to eight hours and last for several days. Both tanning solutions quench skin with aloe vera before tinting it a natural shade ranging from light almond to lifeguard. The trained staff can also hone body shape with infrared body wraps and VacuStep treatments, and brighten smiles with teeth whitening, helping to boost confidence before bodies hit the pool.
Licensed stylist Chris Copeland works to make his clients look and feel beautiful at his chair at Signature Salon & Spa. He places special importance on consulting with his clients, personalizing each service—such as chic haircuts and rich color services with Tocco Magico and Moroccan Oil products—so that everyone is happy with the results. Signature Salon & Spa is more than a place for just hair, though. You can also come in for a massage, a microdermabrasion facial to help reduce the look of fine lines and wrinkles, or have eyebrows and legs waxed before a wetsuit fitting.
Earning accolades from the likes of Jezebel, Flirt & Flutter Beauty Boutique simplifies beauty routines with treatments that have long-lasting results. Eyelash extensions take the place of mascara to create fuller lashes that flutter for up to eight weeks. With HD brows services, technicians use a combination of waxing, threading and tweezing techniques to shape brows before darkening them with a henna formula that lasts up to six weeks. In the nail salon, Perfect Match gel polish blends the long-lasting finish of a gel with the speedy application of a polish. These time-saving beauty services can be consolidated with Bedicures—in which clients rest atop a plush massage bed while receiving a manicure and pedicure in tandem with their choice of facial service.
Flirt & Flutter Lash Loft also tends to the health of eyes inside the Lash & Brow Hospital, where a certified lashologist removes eyelash extensions, performs lash and brow treatments for cancer patients and helps eyes recover from misdirected wet willies.
Owner Mary D not only contributes her initials to M.D.'s Hair Salon, but also her more than 30 years of experience in the beauty industry. Mary has done it all—from owning and managing salons to serving as an accomplished stylist with a specialty in corrective color and multidimensional foils. Today, Mary puts her expertise to work alongside stylist Deena W, who herself boasts more than 25 years of experience. Together, the duo designs flattering haircuts for men and women, straightens unruly frizz with keratin treatments, and treats bridal parties to special-occasion styling. The stylists use products from brands such as Kenra, Redken, Moroccanoil, and Keratin Complex by Coppola to style and retexturize manes. While their hair is being transformed, clients can enjoy ample parking and complimentary snacks and beverages, such as beer and wine.
Banana Beach Tan wants to darken the world—by making it shine with the brilliance of a beautiful bronze glow. The tanning center helps clients acquire natural-looking tans gradually through the use of beds or in an instant through the use of advanced spray-tan technology. During UV-tanning sessions, clients relax in beds by Matrix or Alpha. Inside the Mystic tanning booth, patented jets evenly coat the skin with a solution designed to leave a natural-looking glow. And from within the comforts of the Pure Collagen booth, red light therapy restores cellular activity and skin elasticity.
The stylists at Phase II Hair Salon nurture overgrown or faded hairstyles back to life. Haircuts leave women, men, and children looking chic enough to stroll a fashion runway or duck-walk across a red carpet with confidence. Coloring services such as face framing, foils and corrective color add youth and radiance to less-than-lustrous strands, which can be further bolstered by a bouncy perm or a nourishing deep-conditioning treatment. Inside the friendly salon, stylists also offer updos as well as eyebrow, lip, and chin waxing, and welcome existing clients to drop back in anytime for a free bang or neck trim.
