After injuries kept Major League Barbershop's owner from pitching for the Atlanta Braves, he utilized his backup talent as a barber to create a family-run salon that caters to male scalps of any age. Reflective exterior windows greet customers and sentient sunglasses as they wander into the intimate setting and kick back in plush, leather haircutting thrones. As toes hover above tan tile flooring, trained stylists precisely trim and clip strands into traditionally dapper 'dos or funky, customized hair patterns such as zigzags, arrows, or labyrinthine blue prints. Clients can also cozy up beneath hot- and cold-towel treatments to freshen facialspheres or expel unwanted tendrils with beard or brow trims.

In Shear Bliss's 7,200-square-foot relaxation haven, 23 hairstylists, five nail technicians, and three makeup artists beautify guests' exterior images, and four massage therapists, a physician, and a nutritionist help bolster their health. Nail specialists steel fingers against the elements and mittens insulated with sandpaper by performing standard manicures, which pepper polish with UV light to lend it greater durability. In a private room adorned with framed certificates declaring their well-rounded training, technicians clear skin imperfections with medical treatments such as sclerotherapy.

Brandi Snyder has spent much of her life around cameras, splitting her time as a model and photographer. At Lashes by Lavish, she helps others get camera ready by thickening and lengthening their natural eyelashes with realistic NovaLash extensions. Brandi carefully bonds individual lashes to a synthetic or mink extension with a waterproof adhesive. These lashes are shower safe and won’t fall out during cathartic fits of weeping. In fact, they’ll only fall out when the natural lash sheds, which happens roughly every 60 to 90 days.
