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.
Cobb Life magazine named Sawyer Bailey Salon the Best Salon in Cobb County in 2012. In the magazine's accompanying article, Sawyer Bailey—the salon's namesake—describes what stokes her passion as a stylist. "I just love being creative and creating styles for every individual." The magazine describes Ms. Bailey a bit further: she is a third-generation hairstylist who considers her specialties to be events and updos.
With this experience, Ms. Bailey leads expert stylists who sculpt hair with inspired colors, working with various textures, shapes, and mouthfeels. Additionally, their skill set extends beyond hair with services such as waxing and sunless tanning.
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.
The skilled aestheticians at Brazilian Beauty Salon focus on smoothing the body and face. They employ a hard-wax formula to purge nearly any area of the male or female body from excess hair, including legs, underarms, chest, shoulders, and stomach. The salon recommends regular waxing to produce better results over time. During facials with focuses such as relaxation, European methods, or teen-skin concerns, products from the Image Skincare line scrub and moisturize the skin. Private treatment rooms lend each service the privacy and license to scream "bomb!" of a deserted island.
Parisian Nail Salon's nail gurus dote on digits with the 25-minute express Parisian spa pedicure, a luxurious treatment that deluges sandal-weary piggies with torrents of spa salts and essential oils. After human paws are thoroughly soothed in a gentle footbath, one of these seasoned staffers conditions cuticles and buffs skin with sanitized instruments, preparing feet for public exhibition in flip-flops and open-toed picture frames. Then, they'll slather softening lotion into cozy nail beds before adding prismatic pop to toe canvases with the polish of your choosing.
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.
