Jack-o’-lanterns have the most radiant faces, and not just because they have actual flames backlighting their smiles. The radiance also comes from a pumpkin’s salutary blend of vitamin C, antioxidants, and enzymes. Hence the key ingredient in the botanical facial and peel at Cosmos Déjà Vu Salon. This inventive approach to skincare exemplifies the care and attention the salon’s licensed aesthetician, Alison, lends to her clients’ faces. For her half-dozen facials, she calls upon other natural ingredients such as seaweed and honey to exfoliate and cleanse visages. Alison also performs a full menu of makeup services, including bridal packages and tutorials for students eager to kick their daily routines up a notch.
Jamaican-born Sophia Johnson, owner and master stylist of SoKai Salon, became enthralled with tendrils as a child, immigrating at age 14 to New York where she began working part-time at a hair salon. Her part-time passion turned to a full-time career and, after training in New York City, earning a business degree, and snipping strands as a master stylist at two salons, she relocated to Atlanta to open SoKai Salon. Since then, Sophia has integrated her love for artistic expression—the name SoKai stands for a “community of artists devoted to their art”—with her knack for taming strands, enlisting a team of stylists, makeup artists, and massage therapists to beautify and relax the masses. SoKai Salon supplies its diverse client base with everything from standard cuts and color services to more alternative cosmetic treatments such as colon hydrotherapy and ionic footbaths.
From offices in the US and Canada, laser techs at International Laser Therapy Centers work to empower people to live more healthfully. Using only the power of low-level lasers, they work to help clients lose weight or quit smoking by aiming the light beams at specific areas throughout. This works to increase endorphin levels to create a sustained calming effect, which may decrease the urge to overeat or smoke due to stress, as well as make it easier to overcome temptation during diets or nicotine detoxes. Staffers also work to give excess weight the boot via noninvasive infrared body wraps, which target deep tissues with thermal heat in the hopes of dissolving the body’s store of fat and marshmallow fluff. Furthermore, a 24-hour support line works in conjunction with in-spa treatments to motivate clients to reach their goals.
The nationally-certified massage therapists at Serenity Wholistic Wellness have trained under chiropractors and nutritionists, but they also go the extra mile for client health by maintaining CPR/AED Heartsaver certifications. Inside the wellness center, they upgrade traditional massage modalities with hot and cold stones, stretching, cupping, aromatherapy, and rain-drop therapy, which soothes bodies better than laying outside during a thunderstorm. They also pamper feet with rose-petal foot soaks and warm brown-sugar foot scrubs.
For those who wish to look as good as they feel after a treatment, Serenity Wholistic Wellness hosts a boutique stocked with jewelry, custom oils and lotions, purses, and wallets.

Elaine Sterling Institute creates the best of both worlds by granting aesthetics students real-world experience while giving patrons professional-grade beauty treatments at a fraction of the cost. While working through their 1,000-hour aesthetician program, students put their classroom studies to the test by performing facials, waxing, and body treatments on everyday clients under the guidance of an experienced aesthetician. They also go beyond standard spa services to apply body wraps that help slim torsos and soften skin with a combination of nutrient-packed serums and enriched wraps, and they perform lash- and brow-tinting services that enrich strands left dull from walking onto black-and-white movie sets.
