Hair Restoration Specialists of Atlanta's hair-reclamation experts attempt to revitalize the scalps of men and women with a range of nonsurgical and surgical treatments. The medical team consults with each client to work out a tailored plan, which could incorporate noninvasive grafts that bond directly to skin to create lush head-top topiary. Doctors may also choose to combine high-frequency lasers with medicated scalp massages to plant the seeds for healthy and hydrated hair. For surgical options, they can transfer willing follicles from donor areas as well as revive already existing transplants.
Through more than 15 years in the industry, stylist and makeup artist Minrell Bowers has masterminded makeup for theatrical performances, honed her cutting technique with Aveda, and developed her own sense of styling smarts. At A'jewel4sure Hair & Makeup Studio, she and her staff beautify clients' hair with cuts that run the gamut from conventional to contemporary and creative. The stylists cut, color, and treat hair of all ethnicities. Products from Redken and Moroccanoil moisturize strands more effectively than standing underneath a waterfall until your head is numb.
Wherever Wenny Blackman goes, Aveda's organic products are sure to follow, and vice versa, as the stylist, aesthetician, and owner of Wen Chic Salon and Spa—an Aveda Concept Salon and Spa—has been attending Aveda classes since 1996. Needless to say, she and her skilled staff employ Aveda products exclusively to augment their repertoire of salon and spa services, including colorings that use HeadMapping, instead of traditional wizards, to predict the amount of time, product, and cost for each session.
Before the Texas board-certified stylists can cut, color, or treat hair, Blackman requires them to attend classes at the Aveda Institute. The stylists' mastery of Aveda's curriculum, coupled with their overall experience, determines their status as a stylist, senior stylist, master stylist, or director. Similarly, the licensed aestheticians and registered massage therapists reach for Aveda products during facials, massages, waxing treatments, and airbrush-tanning sessions, which are staged in the spa area's quiet summer and winter rooms, free of cell-phone ringtones and piles of burning leaves.
