To Shannon Smith, hair is an art form. For nearly two decades, she has used this art to imbue clients with style and confidence, and she continues that mission today at Sha'Mari Hair Salon. Whether it's a classic cut or a hair-weaving, Shannon and her team give each clip and snip their undivided attention. And because hair can have profound effects on attitudes and self-esteem, they combat thinning hair with treatments and also provide designer wigs upon request.
The best dental procedures improve teeth without making themselves noticed. At Smile of Decatur, Dr. Mauzard Benjamin sticks to that philosophy by making sure evidence of his treatments stays virtually invisible. Instead of using metal amalgams to fill cavities, for example, he uses tooth-colored composite resins. Instead of metal bracket braces, he straightens adult teeth with Invisalign clear braces, which are as difficult to spot as a gecko when you need a gecko to help move your couch.
A head stylist with more than 15 years of experience, Rozy works with her team to polish appearances with hairstyling and hair-removal services for both lads and ladies.

Rozy also cultivates decorative skin with henna tattoos.
At Pamper Yourself, a choice of seven massage types makes it easy to do just that. Need to unwind? Try the long, gliding strokes of the Swedish or hot-stone modalities. Have an athletic injury? A sports massage soothes those overworked muscles. These massages can be combined with other services—including facials, seaweed body wraps, and mani-pedis—for a few hours of luxury.
The stylists at Salon Phal have a way with flatirons. One of many beauty services offered, the staff performs standalone flatiron treatments, lending a sleek, well-coiffed look to manes without requiring a session with the shears.
