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.
If the Stone Mountain location of Fresche Hair Salon & Boutique feels like home, that’s probably because it’s nestled inside a ranch-style house, where salon artists work in rooms filled with rustic decor. The Oakhurst location, on the other hand, has the funky air of an art gallery—amid the stark contrast of kelly-green walls and brown furnishings, a colorful painting perches atop the mirror of every styling station. No matter their surroundings, the staff brings a hospitable and savvy approach to each service. They tend to a number of hair needs, including cutting hair into new looks and adding length with feather or 100% human-hair extensions. Their color services drench hair in enticing hues and strengthening proteins that protect from UV rays and people hucking gum for no reason. Meanwhile, professional makeup artists apply lipstick and blush and hold eyelash-extensions lessons and makeup tutorials.
A studio done up in glamorous pink, Tiffany blue, and timeless black and white provides the perfect setting for Diamonds & Pearls Image Studio's elegant beautifying services. Although they specialize in natural-looking extensions, the stylists and aestheticians also offer other hair services, such as highlights and silk presses, as well as coloring, nail art, and professional makeup services. While receiving their image upgrades, clients enjoy amenities, such as wine and hors d'oeuvres. The studio is open around the clock, in case inspiration strikes in the middle of the night or a dream horse suggests eyelash extensions.
Most spas will tell you what to put on your skin, but few will tell you what to put in your body. But Suite 20 Day Spa is different—the staff includes not only massage therapists and aestheticians, but a licensed dietitian. The hair services are extensive as well: stylists wrap tresses in rollers and coat unruly strands with relaxers, using products from Straight Request, Design Essentials, and CB Smooth. And unlike at voting and gambling stations, kids don’t just have to sit and watch, since they too can hop into the styling chair for cuts, curling, and flat-wrapping.
