Hair Connect Salon's certified stylists reshape the tresses of male and female guests in cushy black chairs. After free consultations, expert shampoos and deep-conditioning treatments whip locks into lustrous shape. Coiffures adopt new forms as specialists craft precise haircuts with laser-guided shears before drying and sculpting the freshly cut fringe. Patrons can gild dull tresses with partial or full highlights or blanket head grass with a rich coat of all-over color. Soothing blow-dries purge any excess moisture and warm napes, and the staff's omnipresent passion and friendliness can imbue clients with warm feeling as satisfying as sinking into a marshmallow-strewn bathtub of hot cocoa.
Banana Beach Tan wants to darken the world?by making it shine with the brilliance of a beautiful bronze glow. The tanning center helps clients acquire natural-looking tans gradually through the use of beds or in an instant through the use of advanced spray-tan technology. During UV-tanning sessions, clients relax in beds by Matrix or Alpha. Inside the Mystic tanning or Versa Pro booth, patented jets evenly coat the skin with a solution designed to leave a natural-looking glow. And from within the comforts of the Pure Collagen booth, red light therapy restores cellular activity and skin elasticity.
With 19 locations conveniently sprinkled throughout the Atlanta area, Solar Dimensions helps clients get beach-ready regardless of their proximity to the shore. Each location features a fleet of UV tanning beds of varying brightness, all waiting to sun-kiss skin in 10–20 minutes and comfort clients with a built-in cooling apparatus or complimentary snuggles from a nearby penguin. Custom airbrush-tanning treatments or automated VersaSpa and MyMyst sunless-tanning sessions forgo light exposure and instead tone complexions with tinted mists that materialize in four to eight hours and last for several days. Both tanning solutions quench skin with aloe vera before tinting it a natural shade ranging from light almond to lifeguard. The trained staff can also hone body shape with infrared body wraps and VacuStep treatments, and brighten smiles with teeth whitening, helping to boost confidence before bodies hit the pool.
Licensed nail technicians at Royal Nails & Spa beautify fingertips and toes with skilled shaping and painting. Clients can sashay past the aquarium filled with luminous orange fish and sit in a cushy leather pedicure chair while nail technicians trim cuticles, file nails, and calibrate elevator shoes. Flat-screen TVs entertain clients as technicians slick designer polish onto toenails. Across the amber-hued spa flanked by gilt Corinthian columns, clients offer their hands to be beautified into shapely ovals and buffed to shimmering smoothness. Technicians ornament fingernails with seasonal shades evoking autumnal harvests, wintery frosts, or springtime cap-and-gown receipts.
