It would probably be more efficient to ask Joan Bell Carroll about what she doesn't do. As the founder of Browz Makeup Bar, she is, of course, a makeup artist and aesthetician, but her skill set includes more than just creating a pretty face. She is also a licensed aesthetics instructor, and teaches courses at Browz on basic and advanced makeup artistry, waxing, and even pole and belly dancing. Inside her studio—a chocolate-hued space accented with pops of orange and blue—she hosts a diverse range of events that includes everything from birthday and lingerie parties to photo shoots and dance classes.
But since opening Browz nearly 20 years ago, Joan's specialty has always been brow and makeup services. She and her team can shape brows however clients prefer, whether by waxing, threading, tweezing, or pixellating. They also remove unwanted hair elsewhere with a complete selection of body waxing treatments. They create flawless skin with airbrush makeup applications, and can lengthen lashes with semi-permanent extensions or temporary strip or individual lashes.
As a licensed waxing technician, Lekisha "Kish" Lyles knows that the little things make a big difference. For instance, she uses a soft, fragrant honey wax for basic areas, and she uses a lemon hard wax for more sensitive areas such as the bikini line and underarms. She also takes great pride in cleanliness, never re-dipping or reusing wax. Kish works out of Tu La 2 Nail Salon, where clients can solicit her expertise for a clean and smooth Brazilian wax and swift brow wax, as well as waxing for the legs, back, and other more intimate areas.
Rio Hair Salon is a north Atlanta waxing and hair salon that’s dedicated to helping clients achieve face-flattering haircuts and smooth, silky skin. Licensed stylist Michelle takes care of hair, from cuts to single-process color and highlights, while an experienced aesthetician works on waxing services for both men and women. Pop in for a quick eyebrow wax or a daring Brazilian, or have underarms or hard-to-reach areas, such as the back, gently stripped of fuzz in record time.

When aesthetician Princess George left her job at a spa, her phone began ringing off the hook. Former clients of hers came calling, seeking her waxing services, and soon Bare Body Waxing was born.
She first traveled to her clients' homes to wax their unwanted hair away, but her client list grew to the point that she needed a permanent headquarters. She partnered with her sister, and today, George offers waxing and threading services to both men and women who want to get rid of excess body hair, shape their brows, or increase their aerodynamics for when they're hustling to get to a meeting.
