Spa Sydell traces its roots to 1982, when it opened in Buckhead with a vision of helping Atlantans ease away tension and escape the pressures of daily life. More than 30 years later, Spa Sydell has grown to seven locations while continuing its commitment to providing each customer with personalized attention to ensure superior service and quality.
Each of the spa’s outposts exhibits a unique personality—the larger facilities echo with the sounds of water trickling down fountain displays, soothing scents permeate the air, tropical flowers are placed with care, and the more intimate boutique locations host private treatment rooms in which botanical fragrances couple with the sounds of orchestral twee pop. Regardless of the locale, expect a relaxing, personalized massage experience in which a therapist tends to your individual aches and pains with soothing strokes. During facials, the spa’s aestheticians blend signature products individually selected and previously tested on the CEO.
For Tammy Stanley, the owner of Kera Vie, the learning process never stops. Even after more than 20 years as a professional stylist, she still regularly attends hair shows in an effort to keep her skills sharply fashion-forward. This commitment is also demonstrated by the mater stylists at the salon, who bring decades of experience to their chairs. They perform basic cut and color services, as well as advanced treatments such as color correction, seamless hair extensions, and Global Keratin's Juvexin smoothing system, which reduces frizz and increases shine for up to five months. In addition to hair services, the team is also adept at delivering makeup applications with Mirabella Beauty cosmetics.
Taylor/Brooks Salon & Spa owner Brooke designed her salon to funnel the industry's latest advancements into an intimate space where her hair designers and their clients could collaborate on the perfect cut. As a Redken Elite salon, the staff members wield Redken products and styling techniques as they clip and color locks into flattering looks. The staff also specializes in detail-oriented services ranging from brow tinting and eyelash extensions to makeup applications and waxing to ensure every client looks even better than their loudmouth mirror reflection.
Plum Tree Salon & Spa sits on a former plum tree orchard. In the same spot where workers once toiled picking and carrying produce through the fields, massage therapists and aestheticians now stand by ready to provide a relaxing getaway with Swedish massages and European facials. The spa also staffs eight licensed stylists, who are on call to help spur personal transformations. Using products by Moroccanoil and Pureology, they sculpt haircuts, embellished with color and texture that make hair look as healthy and refreshed as a vitamin that just returned from Hawaii.
With three decades of combined experience, the certified stylists of Tiramisu Salon tap into their inimitable artistic visions to sculpt aesthetically pleasing coifs. Educators grace the follicular utopia each day, and trained keratin stylists ensure that no curly hair or notebook's spiral binding escapes their smoothing powers. Whether the stylists are snipping away at a youngster's tresses or infusing locks with highlights, they each harness their continuing education and the wishes of the client to create distinct designs.
William David Salon is housed in a 1940s cottage in Alpharetta, where customers are warmly greeted by a team of stylists who consult with each of their clients over coffee or wine in the salon’s gourmet kitchen. The salon is host to a variety of products from top brands including Davines, DS Labs, and Ref. The salon's aestheticians further enhance clients' natural beauty with facials, microdermabrasion, peels, and masks.
