Stylist and salon owner Michelle Wood leads the charge at Apollo of Alpharetta, where she draws on 20 years of experience in the hair industry to specialize in hair replacement and barber cuts. Her professional cohort Tina Styles, who has designed looks for high-profile clients, specializes in makeovers, during which she upgrades clients’ hair and makeup and clears wardrobes of outdated clothes and busted Gutenberg printing presses. To complement Apollo’s range of hair services, the crew also offers facials, mani-pedis, and body wraps.
Kelly Couture by Melanie is a beauty boutique specializing in makeup application, eyelash extensions, and image consulting. Choose between custom eyelash extensions or makeup application to achieve a glamorous look for an upcoming wedding, formal affair, or afternoon spent gazing dreamily at your reflection. Eyelash extensions combine lashes of varying length, thickness, and curl for a natural doe-eyed stare. Makeup application can be executed in three different styles—barely there, head turner, and red carpet ready. Barely there offers a fresh and natural daytime look, while head turner applies defined eyes and contoured cheekbones for a more dramatic effect. Red carpet ready provides a flawless finish appropriate for a photo shoot or premier event where you will be on display. It also includes a thorough consultation and trial run of your look.

Nothing makes you feel like a new person quite like traveling abroad. Hasnae Dhrif, the owner of Argan Salon & Spa, certainly knows this: the 16-year industry veteran has lived in both Morocco and France and works to bring a touch of European style to her own business. Here, her staff reaches for high quality products by brands such as Rene Furterer Paris and Moroccanoil as they transform exteriors with the latest salon trends from around the world, including multidimensional color and color correction, threading, shine-boosting keratin treatments and organic facials. A mural of a cascading waterfall is just another touch that helps to mentally transport clients to an exotic new locale, so much so, that many may swear they can hear the ocean when they hold the blow-dryer to their ear.
