Beauty is more than a goal at Ruby Beauty Center. It's a mission. Working traditional Indian influences into Western aesthetics, the skin, hair, makeup, and massage experts help men and women achieve everyday beauty and specialize in bridal makeovers. Whether seeking softer, younger-looking skin via one of the spa's dozens of facials, or catching all eyes with mehndi makeup for the hands and henna for the hair, clients can enjoy total self-transformation without setting up an elaborate teleportation accident. They also offer waxing, hair coloring, and threading treatments.
A head stylist with more than 15 years of experience, Rozy works with her team to polish appearances with hairstyling and hair-removal services for both lads and ladies. Not content with shaving or chemically burning hair down to the skin, Rozy lifts unwanted fuzz out completely with gentle, nontoxic threading and waxing techniques. Rozy also cultivates decorative skin with henna tattoos.
Affordable haircare—stat! Unlike a costly trip to the real emergency room, a visit to Hair ER finds stylists who aim to keep style budget-friendly by adhering to a simple mantra: "You don't have to go broke to be beautiful." Armed with more than 20 years of experience, they perform advanced beauty treatments such as weaves, hydration treatments, silk presses, color, and precision cuts. Chemical peels and makeup applications keep the face looking healthy and bright, whereas manicures and pedicures make nails shiny and colorful, as nature intended.
Eyes are often the first thing you notice about a person, unless they've got an extra leg. Luckily, the aestheticians at Evidence Nail & Beauty Boutique specialize in making eyes more beautiful. Clients can solicit their expertise for a swift brow wax or for lash extensions, which promote volume without messy mascara. The salon also offers mani-pedi services, as well as spa princess days to pamper preteens.
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.
