Comfort is key at Waxing Mania, which is why the certified and licensed aestheticians only slather skin with organic hard wax during hair-removal services. This method is said to leave less residue than soft wax and is reportedly much less painful than duct tape. The techs also put clients at ease by maintaining a high level of cleanliness—including a strict no double-dipping policy—and keeping most appointment times under 30 minutes. All sessions are held behind closed doors in private treatment rooms, where soothing music and neutral décor create a peaceful ambiance.
Jodi Cabena left corporate America to cultivate her knowledge of nutrition and herbal wellness, which blossomed into a holistic beauty practice informed by science at Healing Harbour. Her first step was a course in electrolysis and perfecting the power walks of runway models, followed by enrollment in a program at The International School of Skin, Nail Care and Massage Therapy in Atlanta. There, she became a Georgia board-certified aesthetician and a massage therapist, learning to nourish complexions with highly engineered PCA products and low-tech botanicals such as camphor, as well as heal the symptoms of stress and injury hidden in muscles. In her search for advanced rejuvenation techniques, Cabena discovered a wax developed to safely remove the hair of surgical patients and several noninvasive light therapies that whiten teeth and promote clear, youthful skin.
The skin specialists at Body Wax Salon rid body areas of unruly whiskers during services at their professional salon. The expert waxing staff professionally administers the most up-to-date waxing techniques while telling anecdotes about their past careers as candle makers. During treatments, soft layers of wax coat appendages and bikini lines before techs gently release fuzz from their follicular prisons. To enhance posttreatment comfort, the company website recommends that clients avoid UV rays, chlorine, and wearing deodorant with aluminum after waxing to ensure skin remains uninflamed.
From haircuts to henna tattoos, the stylists at Hair Images have been revamping their clients' images since 1994. Aestheticians cater to clients with a full range of waxing services for all bodily areas, including underarms, brows, bikinis, and legs. They also specialize in threading, an ancient form of hair removal that uses a 100% cotton thread to lift hair directly from the follicle, resulting in clean, sharp brows. Along with threading, they render facials and bridal makeup for that one special day for a wife-to-be or for every day if you're a bridal-catalog model. The Hair Images salon has a clean, welcoming interior with large green plants and posters on the wall showcasing elegant henna work.

Permanent makeup treatments help minimize morning routines, leaving people with more time to read the paper or lunge all over the living room.
