Most spas will tell you what to put on your skin, but few will tell you what to put in your body. But Suite 20 Day Spa is different—the staff includes not only massage therapists and aestheticians, but a licensed dietitian. The hair services are extensive as well: stylists wrap tresses in rollers and coat unruly strands with relaxers, using products from Straight Request, Design Essentials, and CB Smooth. And unlike at voting and gambling stations, kids don’t just have to sit and watch, since they too can hop into the styling chair for cuts, curling, and flat-wrapping.
Our shop has that old fashioned feel featuring friendly service, very reasonable prices, and the latest in men's haircuts and styles and hot lather shaves and facial treatments. You'll feel like part of our barber shop "family" from your first visit.
Licensed massage therapist Susan Cui at TAO Wellness Center approaches massages with a Taoistic perspective. The Taoist philosophy states that humans should embrace the change that occurs in their environments and within their bodies. Throughout life’s many changes, such as aging and discovering that the entire world is a computer program generated by nefarious machines that run off the juice from our brains, Susan helps bodies cope. Head-therapy massage frees skulls from tension that causes headaches and poor sleep, and hand therapy pinpoints nerves that correspond to other body parts to reduce toothaches and chest pain.
Belinda K. Baker, CEO of Salon BKB, is an ethnic-haircare guru. She’s the Wig and Weave expert on TBS’s Movie and a Makeover, and she’s trained tens of thousands of stylists across North America and Europe. Her technique begins with a complimentary consultation that, like speed dating a wig, covers everything from the strands’ elasticity to the client’s lifestyle and commitment level. When stylists settle on a look that works for their clients, they use Pravana and Pureology products to enhance razor cuts, lock and twists, and relaxed styles.
Sol Oasis's founder and veteran manicurist, KaSundra, earned her stripes in the upscale salons of New York and Atlanta before getting the opportunity to work on the high-profile hands of Hollywood stars such as Terrance Howard, Kelly Hu, and Regina King. Welcoming only one client at a time in her tranquil spa, KaSundra is able to lavish each guest with her undivided attention as she performs a wide array of nail and spa treatments. She incorporates natural and organic products into her many services, which include facials, makeup application, Chinese finger-trap removal, and waterless pedicures that are safer and more sanitary than normal pedicures. As natural light peeks through decorative window screens and visitors kick back in a plush, olive-colored throne, KaSundra treats hands and feet like royalty.
Licensed and certified massage therapist Sam Worley has worked at a private studio for more than two years and worked for more than nine years, dissolving stress at local spas. He holds certifications in techniques ranging from deep-tissue to Thai massage, all of which are now available at Massage Harmony, his private studio in Decatur.
Sam never begins a massage without first holding a consultation—a policy that helps him figure out which muscles to concentrate on. Once he's devised a treatment plan, his nimble fingers set to work improving circulation with gentle Swedish strokes, prenatal techniques, or even heated stones. He can enhance any of these sessions with aromatherapy oils.
