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.
Joseph Richardson, owner and founder of the award-winning Paragon your Salon, helms a team of celebrated designers in his breezy and inviting full-service style studio. Custom haircuts begin with an intoxicating scalp massage wherein lithe fingers ease away tension using nourishing products by René Furterer. Single-process color, highlights, or lowlights with vibrant Schwarzkopf or Redken products enhance shine and imbue monochromatic manescapes with dimension. The upscale salon's in-house hair-extension specialist attends to voluminous goals with strand-by-strand, Invisiloc, clip, or sew-in extensions. Warm wood floors soak up light emanating from grand floor-to-ceiling windows, which reveal stunning views of Midtown and the occasional low-flying superhero, as rustic and romantic chandeliers illuminate elegant hair transformations.
"As artists," writes Helmet founder Randy Addison, "we wouldn't want to sculpt something only to have someone else paint it." This sums up the salon's start-to-finish approach to salon treatments?the stylists and colorists are one and the same. They transform clients' manes in a laid-back, welcoming environment that allows the staff to focus solely on creating flattering coiffures tailored to the needs of the head on which they rest. Armed with products from Aveda and Bumble and bumble, they snip, shape, blow-out, and color locks with aplomb. The team views each hairstyle as a collaboration between patron and stylist, brought to life through the latter's vision, skill, and shears, and the former's personality, features, and ability to sit still in a chair.
The six experienced stylists at Alexandar Salon train in the latest European and American designing techniques that mirror the beauty endeavors at their sister location in Belgrade, Serbia. The team was recognized in the Best of the City feature in the January 2011 edition of the Atlantan magazine for their cutting-edge European processes, including a natural-looking highlighting method known as slicing. They sculpt and color strands with Wella products, painting on highlights to create depth or a perspective effect that seems as if hair is both a cup and two faces at the same time. The stylists call upon Magma accents to lighten dark hair up to six shades from its natural color.
Before their stress-relieving treatments even begin, patrons at Spa Sydell sink into deep relaxation. Each of its six locations boasts trickling waterfalls, pleasant aromas wafting through the air, and beautiful tropical plants illuminated by soft lights. Inside the tranquil treatment rooms, the spa?s licensed estheticians and massage therapists?all of whom must pass intense training processes in the spa's signature techniques?further relax clients with a variety of services that rejuvenate the mind, body, and skin.
For over three decades Spa Sydell has been a landmark?one of Georgia's most recognized day spas, emphasizing a continuing commitment to deliver personalized attention and superior service to each customer.
Apryle Blu may be all about making beautiful hair simple, but her career has been far from one-note. The experienced stylist has transformed the tresses of everyone from reality TV stars to dancers at the Soul Train Awards. She brings that same red-carpet attention to her clients at PUSH Salon, caring for their hair using Diva Smooth straightening treatments, Mixed Chicks haircare products, and GKhair shampoos and conditioners. Apryle is especially skilled at maintaining chemically-treated hair, and crafts natural blow-styles with ease. She can also provide extensions for those looking for longer styles, carefully installing strands rather than simply handing clients nametags reading “Rapunzel.”
