At Skin Confidence, founder and licensed medical aesthetician Kat Johnson creates beautiful complexions through a combination of specialty treatments and deep relaxation. She performs each facial and skin peel with Rhonda Allison products, which replace dyes and artificial fragrances with aromatic essential oils and plant extracts. But Kat does more to boost clients’ moods than simply closing all of their pores one by one; she also helps them unload stress with reiki massage and triggers the body’s detoxification process with reflexology techniques.
Specializing in hair-removal techniques both old and new, the staff at Beautyworks ensures smoothness across the skin’s entire surface. Aestheticians call upon the ancient technique of threading to shape brows and remove upper-lip or sideburn stubble. Both men and women can stop in for a wax on areas including the arms, legs, and bikini line, or achieve the texture of a newborn coconut with a full-body wax. Aside from hair removal, the beauty specialists add flirtatious volume to winks with lash tinting, and clean and revitalize skin with organic facials.
The stylists at Salon Phal have a way with flatirons. One of many beauty services offered, the staff performs standalone flatiron treatments, lending a sleek, well-coiffed look to manes without requiring a session with the shears. Hairstylists shape, color, and retexturize, and waxing specialists evict unwanted hair from the body during waxing sessions.
Like your unemployed former guidance counselor, hair can sometimes show up uninvited and refuse to leave. Today’s Groupon will rid you of stray strands with the services of a hair-removal expert. For $25, you’ll get $55 worth of waxing services for men or women from the aptly named WAX, located in the heart of Inman Park. Ben took a few steps back and observed his finished creation in its translucent, static glory. It was a golem of wax, misshapen and unpracticed, but firmly planted on its feet and unmistakably humanoid. Its eyes were hollow concaves, molded by an old billiard ball he kept for luck. Its mouth was a slit from a pizza cutter. Satisfied, he unrolled the ancient calfskin the old hermit gave him, and began to read aloud the spell of life. That redheaded ox Brendan Proshetti was sure going to be sorry at recess tomorrow. Everything was finally about to go right.
