Trained in advanced precision cutting and coloring at Vidal Sassoon Academy, Zahra Negin has spent more than two decades as a stylist, including managing a top salon in Los Angeles. However, in addition to this experience, an equally important credential is her own hair?a mane of dynamic, natural-looking blond. At her eponymous salon, she specializes in color and cuts for blonds, although she and her team can also style hair of other hues with chic cuts, custom highlights, and keratin-straightening treatments. The team also customizes hair to clients' lifestyles, aesthetics, and collections of tiny hats by offering comprehensive consultations, before styling, shampooing, and conditioning hair with products by brands such as K?rastase and Moroccanoil. For an additional customer-friendly touch, the salon offers complimentary extras, such as shampoos with neck massages.
Science meets art at North Fulton Plastic Surgery. As a board-certified plastic surgeon and otolaryngologist who has operated a private practice since 1998, Dr. Brian Howard commits to helping his patients achieve their aesthetic goals by recommending and performing an array of surgical as well as noninvasive procedures. Although their surgeries can affect dramatic cosmetic changes, Dr. Howard's technicians and aestheticians also enlist an assortment of cutting-edge technologies to yield equally impressive results from their noninvasive treatments. In addition to the Fraxel technology and the Q-switched Nd:YAG and ruby laser systems, the center also features devices that harness ultrasounds or radio frequency waves to promote spot fat reduction. Together, their medical and medspa treatments can boost patients' confidence by helping them look svelte and more youthful than the picture on their Big Wheel-driver's license.
At Salon Via, every color and haircut is a team effort. For only after a consultation with the client can the stylist create a 'do that best represents their personality. The salon's owner and an experienced stylist himself?leads the staff as they work to discover each client's perfect hue, ideal length, and favorite flavor of hair mousse. The team has some non-human help as well, thanks to shelves stocked with products from the likes of Moroccanoil, White Sands, Bain de Terre, and Surface Styling.
Before Starr became the lead artist at The Lashing, her career began in St. Louis, Missouri, where she worked in hair salons and even opened her own. Now Starr adorns eyelids by pairing natural lashes with semi-permanent extensions. During this meticulous process, she quickly applies lashes in strips and clusters. Starr also emulates the looks of glamorous actressess such as Elizabeth Taylor, who used her iconic eyelashes to distract from her extra ear.
Starr works with her cohort, Dava, a professionally trained makeup artist and marketer. Dava's been applying makeup to faces since she was 12 years old. She admits that subtlety isn't her strong suit, due to her preference for dramatic eye makeup, rosy cheeks, and voluptuous lips.
