Inside Miracle Beauty Salon, rows of recessed lighting illuminate sleek black salon chairs used during haircuts and henna-infused coloring services. Specialists apply the henna dyes to the skin as an artistic tattoo, allowing clients to express themselves by imbuing their skin with flowing designs or semipermanent tic-tac-toe games. The beauty team also performs traditional services including body waxing and eyebrow threading.
Medical aesthetics specialist Lisa Mangrum brings almost 20 years of experience and an arsenal of advanced technology to her med spa. Peels, photofacials, and microdermabrasions work together to refresh complexions, and a quartet of carefully calibrated lasers lets staff adapt hair-removal treatments to different skin and hair types. Injectables, such as Botox, aim to smooth out facial contours, and permanent makeup leaves mugs photo-ready, even when doused in Gatorade after a spelling-bee win.
Smooth, hairless expanses of skin are a specialty at Unique Threading and Body Wax, where aestheticians perform three types of hair removal. They infuse natural plant waxes with essential oils for waxing sessions, maneuver loops of cotton thread to remove hair on the face or neck, and apply a gentle sugar gel to defuzz sensitive areas. Facials incorporate Ayurvedic herbs and fruit extracts, and henna tattoos adorn skin with ornate designs.
Sol Oasis's founder and veteran manicurist, KaSundra, earned her stripes in the upscale salons of New York and Atlanta before getting the opportunity to work on the high-profile hands of Hollywood stars such as Terrance Howard, Kelly Hu, and Regina King. Welcoming only one client at a time in her tranquil spa, KaSundra is able to lavish each guest with her undivided attention as she performs a wide array of nail and spa treatments. She incorporates natural and organic products into her many services, which include facials, makeup application, Chinese finger-trap removal, and waterless pedicures that are safer and more sanitary than normal pedicures. As natural light peeks through decorative window screens and visitors kick back in a plush, olive-colored throne, KaSundra treats hands and feet like royalty.
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.
In Bare It All’s serene salon environment, licensed professionals help men and women peel away the layers of hair that have gathered uninvited on their bodies.

For those not interested in grooming groins, faces ($35 for women) can be freed from follicle exports, as can ears ($8), eyebrows ($20), and noses ($10).
