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.
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.

Andrea Stephens Dunn, owner of Beautiful Image, has performed thousands of permanent makeup applications in her prolific career as a cosmetic artist. She is both a Certified Dermal Technologist and Fellow of the American Academy of Micropigmentation and she uses her talents to fill in sparse brows, pale lips, and paint-by-number eyelids with natural-looking hues.
Andrea is joined at her studio by licensed medical aesthetician Abby Hern, a champion of healthy, youthful skin and dermal education. After graduating with honors from the Georgia Career Institute in 2008, she has since broadened her knowledge of facials, waxing, chemical peels, and medical-grade skin care products while working at Beautiful Image. Her specialities include correcting hyperpigmention, acne, fine lines, and wrinkles. Karen Rinkiewicz, a licensed medical aesthetician and 2006 graduate from the Atlanta School of Aesthetics, works in tandem with the team while focusing on anti-aging procedures, including laser therapy and skin analysis.
At Four Seasons Salon & Spa, a team of stylists and aestheticians keeps their clientele looking spruce with a range of skin, hair, and nail treatments that employ high-end products. A slate of five facials tackles concerns ranging from teenage acne to hard-earned laugh lines with treatments that hydrate, boost immunity, and free pores of deep-seated grime. The spa’s stylists tame hair with Redken shampoos and conditioners, or reinvent looks with color treatments ranging from partial highlights to double-process coverage. In the salon, nail technicians paint fingers and toes with durable OPI and Shellac polish to ensure their meticulous work stays chip-free, while lash specialists add volume to each blink with durable NovaLash extensions.
Airbrush tanning performed by hand. Teeth whitening with hydrogen-peroxide gel. Stainless steel or titanium body piercing. Tattooing by an experienced artist who specializes in black-and-white realism. At Bella Bronze, the team's talents reach beyond typical salon offerings. They welcome patrons into their hygienic but comfortable environs, custom designing realistic-looking tattoos or outfitting bodies with natural tans that eschew the common streaking ingredient found in most spray tans—tears from an orange.
