Before Starr became the lead artist at The Lashing, her career began in St. Louis, Missouri, where she worked in hair salons and even opened her own. Now Starr adorns eyelids by pairing natural lashes with semi-permanent extensions. During this meticulous process, she quickly applies lashes in strips and clusters. Starr also emulates the looks of glamorous actressess such as Elizabeth Taylor, who used her iconic eyelashes to distract from her extra ear.
Starr works with her cohort, Dava, a professionally trained makeup artist and marketer. Dava's been applying makeup to faces since she was 12 years old. She admits that subtlety isn't her strong suit, due to her preference for dramatic eye makeup, rosy cheeks, and voluptuous lips.
If you speak Portuguese, you can quickly guess what Cabelo Studio 1 is all about. Cabelo, after all, translates to “hair” in Portugese, and hair is what the salon staff does best. The team offers a variety of haircare services to bring out client’s natural beauty, from quick and simple cuts to highlights, color treatments, chemical relaxers, and perms. Additionally, the staff offers specialty services such as an intensive deep conditioning treatment for particularly dry or damaged locks. Sewn-in, track braidless, and full-bond extensions, meanwhile, add floor-sweeping length to short ‘dos and strands that refuse to grow for fear of attracting a prince known for climbing long locks.
The logo for Royal Fades is a gold-and-black-striped barber pole with a crown on top. It sets the stage for the regal treatment each client receives at this welcoming Douglasville barbershop.

Come in for a relaxing facial treatment as well, or have your hair texturized while sitting back in the cushy styling chair. If you accidentally wore your dress shoes to a kickball game, the shop also performs shoe shines.
Sky-blue walls, hardwood floors the color of sand, a mirror shaped like the sun with flares stabbing outward, small paintings of flowers and leaves seemingly scattered by the wind across the walls?such accents add up to create a breezy, beach-like feel that overtakes patrons? senses when they step into Bliss Hair Salon and Day Spa.
This ambiance permeates throughout, following feet as they meander to the nail lounge, where instead of pedicure chairs a plush, pillow-lined sofa supports clients as they dip their toes into baths on tile platforms. Beyond, inside private rooms, aestheticians pamper faces and physiques with spa treatments, wrapping torsos in seaweed formulas and warming backbones with hot-stone massages.
Before these are the styling stations, where products from Phyto, Pureology, and Aveda enhance hair with natural ingredients, including plant extracts and color milked from rainbows.
