Serenity Day Spa’s cadre of experienced aestheticians and massage therapists enacts head-to-toe beauty-bolstering and stress-reducing services. An hour of serenity Swedish massage helps to stimulate the circulatory system, alleviating muscle tension and returning limbs to their natural Stretch Armstrong state of being. An adroit tissue tenderizer applies light to medium pressure along the body, loosening knots and upending toxin squatters throughout the relaxing massage. The gentle steam of an one-hour oxygen-infused serenity spa facial extricates dirt and overdue library books from pores while moisturizing arid visages. Digits in need of maintenance can opt for a manicure that shapes finger shields and cuticles before topping off nails with a polish of your choice.
Recessed lights linger overhead like a star constellation, illuminating the salon’s neon green walls and sleek black leather furniture speckled with black-and-white accent pillows. The black-and-white theme carries into the wall-dominating pop-art portraits of Audrey Hepburn and Marilyn Monroe, the style icons who inspire skilled stylist Julie Wade and her team at Kristin Karl Salon. They give guests celebrity style with flattering cuts, add dimension to locks with color and highlights, and smooth out frizz with Brazilian blowouts. To prep patrons for upcoming weddings or jury-duty reunions, the whip strands into intricately braided ponytails or classic updos.
The stylists at Studio 23 Salon Boutique know how a good hairdo can positively impact one’s confidence; imparting this confidence in their clients is the mission that drives them each day. Studio 23 specializes in extensions—braidless sew-ins, custom-color weaves, and Brazilian hair, to name a few—but they also expertly execute haircuts, color treatments, and relaxers. They further enhance faces with eyelash extensions and eyebrow arching, especially convenient for villains who don’t want to constantly hold up one eyebrow anymore.

Visitors to Scarlett's Retreat Day Spa & Boutique aren't sure if they've stepped back in time or onto a movie set. Surrounded by ornately patterned furniture, fireplaces, and classic portraits, they receive spa treatments in a late 19th-century home. Southern hospitality is a common thread between the decor and the service—the aroma of mint juleps drifts from mani-pedi stations, and roses infuse foot soaks and body wraps with flowery scents. A Victorian tub helps preserve the art of bath rituals, an antiquated practice that once signified opulence, much like installing a subwoofer on your riding saddle. Today, the spa's Georgia Sweet Tea tub ritual steeps bodies in tea and brown sugar to inspire total serenity.
The certified massage therapists and aestheticians prioritize natural ingredients; blueberries, rosemary, and cucumber infuse facials and peels, and the boutique carries products from glo minerals and Éminence Organic Skin Care for clients to take home, alongside robes and handmade neck pillows. For prolonged bouts of relaxation, packages pool services into themed combinations appealing to both men and women. For example, the Mister Butler package features a massage, an aromatherapy tub ritual, and a complimentary cigar and liqueur.
Seasoned technician Julie Gentry, a knowledgeable member of the Creative Nail Design collective, heads The French Manicure's multifaceted staff of stylists, aestheticians, and massage therapists. Crew members adeptly perform spa and salon services, sculpting tresses during hairstyling sessions and kneading away knots or extraterrestrial body-snatchers masquerading as knots during Swedish and deep-tissue massages. Exposed-brick walls bedecked with artwork encircle the skincare room, where aestheticians regale clients with cleansing facials and slimming seaweed body wraps. Thorough manicures and pedicures revivify clients' nails, and waxing services erase unwanted fuzz from faces, legs, arms, and hidden arms.
