Merle Norman specializes in boutique cosmetics and skin-care products. Pick up a cleanser ($23), a toner ($17), a moisturizer ($44), or more and follow it up with a skin consultation, professional makeup application, and a facial to emerge with your visage agleam and aglitter. The four facial options are as follows:
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. The licensed barbers here offer beard trims, haircuts, and line-ups, and they specialize in fades and fashion-forward haircuts. 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.
Perfume Paradise specializes in designer and European fragrances for both men, women, and children. Its collection includes perennial favorites Acqua di Giò by Giorgio Armani and Viva La Juicy by Juicy Couture, which carries hints of honeysuckle, caramel, and wild berries. The shop also carries fragrant bath and body products, as well as sunglasses and other fashion accessories.
The technicians at La Pure Day Spa grant clients' beauty and relaxation behests by performing everything from therapeutic massages to medical-grade skincare treatments. Inside the skincare clinic, aestheticians nourish complexions with facials harvested from Éminence Organic Skin Care products. Glycolic, salicylic, and lactic acids power seven 30-minute chemical peels, which, like linemen in a hall of mirrors, each try to tackle something different, including acne, dryness, and hyperpigmentation. Massage therapy chases tension from tendons with the popular gliding strokes of the Swedish technique or the intense, clinical manipulations of the deep-tissue modality. A licensed physician fills gravity-stricken skin with Botox, Juvéderm, or Restylane injections, and makeup artists decorate faces with Jane Iredale mineral makeup so that clients don’t have to accentuate their best features by circling them with crayons.
At Kasi Spa for Men, an all-female staff helps visitors relax and freshen up with professional massages, haircuts, and hot-towel shaves. After determining clients' individual needs, licensed therapists ease muscle tension in with the appropriate techniques, such as deep-tissue pressure for clients with chronic pain or sports massage for hockey goalies' severely inflamed shins. Stylists shave stubble down to the smooth, masculine skin underneath with an invigorating medley of three hot towels, cleansing treatments, and moisturizing lotions.
Aestheticians at Challise & Company - Hair Skin Body, an Aveda salon and spa, revamp tresses and beautify complexions with botanical extracts blended into Aveda products. These cherry, pumpkin, and vanilla serums team up to cleanse pores, nourish hair, and soothe stressed muscles during negotiations to release hostage knots. A portion of all proceeds goes to local charities selected by staff members.
