Not everyone can say an Emmy-nominated celebrity stylist does their hair, but the clients of Charles Gregory do. Charles was recognized as head of the hair department on HBO's Emmy-nominated original film Lackawanna Blues, a position he has also held on numerous Tyler Perry films. With such commercial success, it’s not surprising that celebrities such as Halle Berry, Queen Latifah, and Raven-Symoné have also flocked to his talents.
Today, after years spent teaching, medal-winning, makeup-academy-founding, and star-styling, Charles pilots his own salon’s team, which includes hairstylists, a massage therapist, and aestheticians that provide facials, microdermabrasion, waxing, and makeup application. In addition to cutting and coloring, the salon’s stylists can also apply extensions and weaves made from real human hair.
It is our purpose to make your dental experience as comfortable as possible and to provide you with a healthier, brighter smile!
The Atlanta Dental Center is designed to make you feel welcome and comfortable from start to finish, with a combination of caring staff and state of the art dental care technology.
Bright Smiles Studio's fully mobile technicians travel to clients' homes with all the tools clients need to whiten their teeth in the comfort of their own armchairs, beds, or flight simulators. Once set up, staffers guide clients through the process, showing them how to apply the whitening solution and position the blue LED whitening lamp correctly. Depending on how dazzling clients want their smiles to be, the sessions take place in 15-minute intervals for up to 45 minutes.
Led by the experienced Dr. Freemont, Freemont Dental & Orthodontic Care's sparkling staff specialists maintain patients' smiles with a full lineup of routine and reparative procedures. The approximately one-hour appointment begins with a complete census of the teeth and gums, wherein a technician searches for signs of excessive wear, oral disease, or counterfeit teeth made from Chiclets. The patient's pearlies then receive a comprehensive scraping and scrubbing, which helps remove buildup of plaque and tartar and polish the toothy surfaces to a mirror-like sheen. Finally, a series of x-rays reveals the hidden history of teeth, helping to ensure that they are sturdy enough to withstand everyday rigors, such as gnawing on a desk chair until it fits in the broom closet.
A wildly successful alternative to traditional day spas—its more than 300 locations blanket 36 states and half a dozen countries—Planet Beach Contempo Spa is a futuristic relaxation station where state-of-the-art machines administer all the spa and tanning services. These friendly automatons sometimes replace familiar treatments, as in the Luminous facial, a light-based service that delivers blemish-busting results similar to those of a conventional facial. But other equipment maps out new spa territory entirely: the Hydro-Derma Fusion chamber moisturizes the whole body with nutrient-rich steam in order to offset the effects of a dry climate or a rear-end collision with a salt truck. Other machines whiten teeth, spray tan skin, and massage muscles.
Planet Beach operates on a gym-style membership system, meaning that members purchase packages or pay flat monthly rates. As members spend more time at the spa, they get to know the helpful assistants who are always on hand to demonstrate how to use the equipment without activating its ability to cry.
MidCity Cafe sates hunger pangs and quenches thirsty throats with a menu stuffed with eclectic cuisine, soda and coffee drinks, and creative martinis. Un-pitted french olives adjudicate as slices of toasted pita bread swan dive into the Mediterranean-style hummus plate ($7.25), allowing chefs to focus their cooking goggles on artfully bundling pork, shrimp, and vegetables into crunch-laden fried spring rolls ($4.94). For heartier fare, hands can happily wrap around MidCity’s banh mi ($5.95–$8.95), a Saigon-style sandwich built on a foundation of crispy baguette and layered with pickled daikon, fresh jalapeño, and a choice of meaty or meat-free protein. Fuel liquid lust with a selection from 15 inventive Grey Goose martinis ($9 each), such as the French Toast martini, which whips up a Bond-style breakfast of Amarula fruit cream liqueur, Frangelico, and a dash of self-destructing cinnamon.
