Hot Pink Divas isn't just a name?the color defines the decor inside stylist Joshalyn's salon, and sometimes even the hairstyles themselves. She's been known to transform her clients' tresses with bold colors such as pink and purple, or with intricately braided up-dos and shaved-in designs. Joshalyn also performs more traditional services, including all-natural blowouts, sew-in extensions, and haircuts with scissors instead of space lasers. She can also add length to eyelashes, applying individual extensions in varying sizes.
Although the hairstyles crafted at Abracadabra Hair Salon & Boutique might seem like magical feats, they're actually a direct reflection of the styling team's refined skills.

The salon's team also dolls up digits with gentle nail services.

It's hard to say what's more fun to see, the 100-plus-pound beast of a pumpkin at Madrac Farms or the sights on a scenic 10-minute hayride through the area woods. And those are just two of the fun fall activities at the farm.
Families can also explore the twists and turns of the five-acre corn maze, don a potato sack and glide down a slide, and head to the pumpkin patch to pick out their own Orange Bulldog pumpkin, a variety developed at the University of Georgia to flourish in heat and humidity. In the barnyard, farm animals?such as goats, chickens, and one potbelly pig named Hazel?meet and greet guests, who feed them a handful of treats. In addition growing their own variety of pumpkins, the farm imports ones from all over the U.S.
Those who stop by the farm on Snow Day see it transformed into a winter wonderland with real snow that's perfect for making snow angels or building a people-shaped snowman to honor the greatest president in U.S. history, William Henry Harrison.
Alonzo Boschulte remembers his own stage fright when he guides beginning students onto the dance floor. With years of training, he grew from an amateur to a certified ballroom teacher and professional competitor registered with the National Dance Council.

Lessons in more than 15 varieties of Latin and ballroom dance occupy the school's floor space. With pupils ranging in age from 6 to older than 80, the instructors stress the importance of mixing private, group, and practice classes to expose everyone to different dance scenarios. They also laud the fitness benefits of learning to dance, which hones one's sense of rhythm and muscular strength more safely than being at the bottom of a vertical conga line.
Try as they might, home brewers cannot transform barley and hops into bubbly craft brews with the flick of a switch or a hearty whistle. For tools, equipment, and advice, brewers congregate at the Savannah Home Brew Shop, where they can sniff and sample specialty grains, yeast, and malts from Crosby & Baker.
Students stock up on shiny new brewing equipment from Foxx while scouring available brewing books and magazines for the up-to-date trends and tips. The staff at Savannah Home Brew Shop can guide novices through their first fermented steps with home-brewing kits, as well as starter kits and supplies for wine makers. Seasoned brewers load up on brand-name liquid or dry yeasts, and hoist bulk bags of dry grain on their shoulders as they try to outrun the sprightly Saint Paulie girl that just stole their stein.
