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.
Over the past two decades, Bridgette Hunt has honed her styling and cosmetology skills across North Central Florida and the greater Atlanta area. With salon services ranging from relaxers and perms to highlights and deep-conditioning treatments, Bridgette creates bold new looks for clients so they can impress friends or prove the value of hairstyling to a herd of yaks. Her clients can further reinvent their appearance with brow, lip, and chin waxing, lash extensions, and bridal updos and weaves.
Barbara "Beebe" Love seems to be something of a heartbreaker. From the testimonials on her website, it's clear that, as she's moved from salon to salon throughout the Midwest, she's left a trail of clients searching for somebody to fill her place. Their loss, however, is Dunwoody's gain. In the studio she recently opened near Perimeter Mall, she designs hairstyles for maximum versatility and shares beauty tips of all kinds. She and her staff also specialize in high-quality extensions and in color that leaves hair looking healthy, which means using conditioning Redken Chromatics products rather than braiding in broccoli florets.
With 19-foot high ceilings, bright colored walls, clean exposed brick, and cast iron flourishes, Shear Salon maintains a vibe that is both upbeat and contemporary. This lively salon is owned by Jodi Schwartz Grieshop, who studied under the founder of Aveda and worked as a stylist in the film, photography, and theater industries. Here, Jodi has assembled an equally talented cast of master stylists and makeup artists who dole out everything from haircuts, glazes, and keratin treatments to transform clients into the best version of themselves.
Jodi and her crew at Shear Salon emphasize comfort, which extend to more than just the rich wood furnishings and mosaic tile artwork. Upon entering, clients are offered a choice of complimentary beverages, as well as access to free Wi-Fi.
Though her pampering skills once enriched the lives of students at Redken School in New York, these days, master cosmetologist Pat Alessi uses her more than 30 years of experience to upgrade looks at Salon 1580. Along with specialty services in creative coloring, Global Keratin treatments, and rejuvenating organic facials, Pat counts communication as one of her greatest styling assets, taking the time to carefully listen to each of her client's wants and concerns before expertly shaping locks with Redken, L'Oréal, and Rusk products. To keep abreast of the latest trends in European styling and croissant making, she also frequently attends seminars led by industry leaders, melding modern techniques with her own creative flair to create looks that are completely fresh.
Art Hair Salon & Spa inspires beauty from head to toe—stylists and aestheticians alike combine technique with artistic sensibility to design flattering looks that withstand daily life. Clients can peer into mirrored walls to witness transformations occur as hairstylists revamp coifs with cut, color, and texturizing treatments. Nearby, skincare experts obscure blemishes and signs of aging with European facials and acne care, while massage therapist melt tension and inspire calm with hot-stone bodywork treatments. Nail techs maintain sterile work-stations—that means hospital-grade autoclaves, basin soaks with pipeless jet-spas, and all-metal instruments. But they're just as dedicated to the art of nail care with deluxe mani-pedi packages, 3D nail art, and kids mani-pedis for young ’uns who want to make a good first impression with the guidance counselor.
