For more than 30 years, patrons have augmented their skin's natural color with tanning services at Sunshine Tan. Six levels of UV beds range from gentle to intense—regular beds build base tans, whereas turbo beds catalyze the deepest possible color by encouraging melanin with inspirational speeches. As an alternative to UV tanning, the company offers three sunless options: VersaSpa, Mystic Tan, and Infinity Sun airbrush tanning. Among these options, Mystic Tan booths dispense a bronzer with polarized particles that adhere to the skin's natural magnetic properties and thereby prevent streaks.
Cindy German-Day, Nuance Skin Boutique's master cosmetologist, has more than 25 years of skincare experience, so it's no surprise that she's been asked to share her knowledge as the aesthetics instructor at Athens Technical College. When she's not busy teaching, she's providing her clients with skincare services that emphasize a clinical approach: microdermabrasion, natural skin peels, and European facials. Her center also carries such cosmeceutical lines as Image Skincare and Agera Laboratories so that clients can continue caring for their skin at home or inside a locked chifforobe.
At Athens Salon & Day Spa, master aesthetician Nazy and master cosmetologist Mary boast nearly 60 years of combined experience in the arts of client pampering and beautification. Nazy immigrated to the United States from the Middle East in 1989, bringing along her knowledge of khite, or threading, which extracts hair with cotton thread while stimulating blood flow to the skin. During facials and skin treatments, Nazy spritzes dermises with organic Éminence skincare products designed to prevent skin irritation without the harsh chemicals or lumberjack beards found in other brands. Mary’s mastery of retexturing hair and her soft perm technique pump limp strands full of robust volume, simplifying styling regimens with wash-and-wear maintenance.
Bright-red salon chairs greet visitors to Studio Seventy-Two Salon, welcoming them to take a seat with their bright-silver arms. Above them, ruby-colored pendant lights hang from the ceiling, shedding light on staffers who create chic dos all day. At these stations, stylists use professional products to deep-condition hair, snip personalized cuts, add in highlights, or change up clients' existing hair colors to match the hair of their stunt doubles.
At Spruce Salon, Jennifer Johnson cultivates stylish cuts and colors strands with high-end products by Redken and Pureology. The 14-year veteran stylist focuses on working with blond tresses, but provides myriad services for a wide range of hair hues. She can create a new look with a stylish cut that flatters the client's face shape and individual style.
