Indya Lowe, stylist and owner of Salon121 Buckhead, oversees her staff as they cut, color, and sculpt the hair of male and female clients from a menu of services. Beneath merlot-red walls adorned with abstract paintings, the salon performs crewcuts and highlights or battles frizz with formaldehyde-free Keratin Earth products. Eyebrows arch with threading and waxing services, readying eyelids to flutter charmingly after failing to read the signs at a wax-fruit museum.
An expert in both men's and women's hairstyles, stylist Miha Puiu of Salon 1901 also specializes in french highlights. She imported this technique—and a slew of others, such as multidimensional haircuts—from her native Europe, where she often returns to soak up beautifying skills. Looking to limit exposure to formaldehyde and other chemicals, she sprinkles her clients' hair with all-natural shampoos and styling products whenever possible.
Not content to rest on her laurels, licensed massage therapist April Chaney of RelaxATL builds on her background in physiology and anatomy with ongoing training.

April sees clients at her studio, in their homes, and aboard whatever pirate ships they may live on at the moment.
