Atlanta Permanent Cosmetics owner Melissa Vanzandt and her crew of certified technicians aim to eliminate the morning makeup hassle by anointing features with permanent cosmetics. A blessing to people with cosmetic allergies or vision problems, permanent cosmetics add discreet pigment to eyebrows, eyelids, and lips to help enhance the natural beauty of each client and return faces to neglected Mrs. Potato Head dolls. Meanwhile, specialists further illuminate facial beauty with speedy LED teeth whitening and lush mink lash extensions.
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.
When it comes to making her clients feel beautiful, ReNu owner Feleshia Sams knows what she's doing. Years of work as a makeup artist and micropigmentation specialist gave her all the tools necessary to help her clients take on the world with a more confident stride. Some come to her seeking permanent makeup or medical pigmentation treatments—two of her specialties—that help improve permanent skin issues. She also offers fillers, eyelash extensions, facials, and skin-tightening treatments that make it no longer necessary to walk around holding your face taut all day.
Free of parabens, dyes, and other chemicals, Pure Skn Organic Beauty's cosmetics and skincare products are as unadulterated as fresh snowfall. That's because the company's line of blushes, lipsticks, eye shadows, and moisturizers are made exclusively from natural ingredients, such as red rooibos tea from South Africa and crushed minerals imported from Germany (though the products are actually manufactured in Michigan).
The organic nature of the products has been appealing; the line is available at retailers throughout the Midwest, and it has attracted customers to the company's services, which range from organic facials to laser hair removal and eyelash-extension applications.
The experts at Fountain of Youth MD know that looking youthful also means feeling energized. In this spirit, their facials combat signs of aging, while also incorporating luxurious extras, from blackhead extractions to the eyebrow cleanup that prevents brows from growing into a sweatband. Their microdermabrasion also brightens complexions, buffing away the outer layer of dead skin with a diamond-tipped Viora Pristine apparatus. However, the face is not their exclusive focus?the team also fosters full-body wellness with acupuncture, chiropractic adjustments, and custom diet plans.
