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.
Stylist and salon owner Michelle Wood leads the charge at Apollo of Alpharetta, where she draws on 20 years of experience in the hair industry to specialize in hair replacement and barber cuts.

To complement Apollo’s range of hair services, the crew also offers facials, mani-pedis, and body wraps.
