With 19-foot high ceilings, bright colored walls, clean exposed brick, and cast iron flourishes, Shear Salon maintains a vibe that is both upbeat and contemporary. This lively salon is owned by Jodi Schwartz Grieshop, who studied under the founder of Aveda and worked as a stylist in the film, photography, and theater industries. Here, Jodi has assembled an equally talented cast of master stylists and makeup artists who dole out everything from haircuts, glazes, and keratin treatments to transform clients into the best version of themselves.
Jodi and her crew at Shear Salon emphasize comfort, which extend to more than just the rich wood furnishings and mosaic tile artwork. Upon entering, clients are offered a choice of complimentary beverages, as well as access to free Wi-Fi.
Through more than 15 years in the industry, stylist and makeup artist Minrell Bowers has masterminded makeup for theatrical performances, honed her cutting technique with Aveda, and developed her own sense of styling smarts. At A'jewel4sure Hair & Makeup Studio, she and her staff beautify clients' hair with cuts that run the gamut from conventional to contemporary and creative. The stylists cut, color, and treat hair of all ethnicities. Products from Redken and Moroccanoil moisturize strands more effectively than standing underneath a waterfall until your head is numb.
Over the past two decades, Bridgette Hunt has honed her styling and cosmetology skills across North Central Florida and the greater Atlanta area. With salon services ranging from relaxers and perms to highlights and deep-conditioning treatments, Bridgette creates bold new looks for clients so they can impress friends or prove the value of hairstyling to a herd of yaks. Her clients can further reinvent their appearance with brow, lip, and chin waxing, lash extensions, and bridal updos and weaves.
Barbara "Beebe" Love seems to be something of a heartbreaker. From the testimonials on her website, it's clear that, as she's moved from salon to salon throughout the Midwest, she's left a trail of clients searching for somebody to fill her place. Their loss, however, is Dunwoody's gain. In the studio she recently opened near Perimeter Mall, she designs hairstyles for maximum versatility and shares beauty tips of all kinds. She and her staff also specialize in high-quality extensions and in color that leaves hair looking healthy, which means using conditioning Redken Chromatics products rather than braiding in broccoli florets.
The weave and color experts at Kariah Salon manufacture majestic manes while striving to keep locks healthy. Weave services, using 100% human hair, start at a discounted price of $100 (or $70 for a quick weave) and may be sewn into all of your natural hair or, like a helmet made from a halved Wiffle ball, leave some of your hair out. A net sew-in ($150) supplies solutions to those with thinning hair, allowing them to dazzle friends, coworkers, and traffic cops. The relaxer retouch treatment is designed to straighten head-fur that's spawned since a previous relaxer treatment, imbuing a sense of unity and follicular nationalism to once-warring noggin turf.
Affordable haircare—stat! Unlike a costly trip to the real emergency room, a visit to Hair ER finds stylists who aim to keep style budget-friendly by adhering to a simple mantra: "You don't have to go broke to be beautiful." Armed with more than 20 years of experience, they perform advanced beauty treatments such as weaves, hydration treatments, silk presses, color, and precision cuts. Chemical peels and makeup applications keep the face looking healthy and bright, whereas manicures and pedicures make nails shiny and colorful, as nature intended.
