The stylists and technicians of ATL Beauty Bar work to enhance the natural beauty in clients of all ages, genders, and races. Stylists snip away excess hair, revealing ‘dos that accentuate personal style. Technicians tend to fingers and toes with manicures and pedicures using a salvo of standard and long-lasting gel polishes.
The expert aestheticians at Kim Phung Day Spa & Skin Care pamper guests with beautifying treatments including facials and microdermabrasions that turn back time, rendering skin radiant. Clients may also exhibit a youthful glow after an expert makeup application. Alternately, body wraps nourish skin and waxing treatments make it smooth to the touch. Spa staff can also remove dermatological irregularities, such as moles, veins, and horns that keep growing back.
Together, Kendra Smith and Shana Kersey offer hair services that also take into account a client's holistic health and wellbeing. This is why Shear Eden Beauty & Wellness Center offers styling sessions with naturally derived shampoos and chemical-free silk press hair-straightening procedures. At the same time, Kendra and Shana still focus their efforts on creating trendy, flattering new hairdos as they tidy up stray strands, incorporate layers, or add depth and dimension with the help of full, partial, or infrared highlights. Steam hydration and apple cider scalp treatments help round out the menu's selection of indulgent services intended to make clients feel as rejuvenated as they appear.
Jamaican-born Sophia Johnson, owner and master stylist of SoKai Salon, became enthralled with tendrils as a child, immigrating at age 14 to New York where she began working part-time at a hair salon. Her part-time passion turned to a full-time career and, after training in New York City, earning a business degree, and snipping strands as a master stylist at two salons, she relocated to Atlanta to open SoKai Salon. Since then, Sophia has integrated her love for artistic expression—the name SoKai stands for a “community of artists devoted to their art”—with her knack for taming strands, enlisting a team of stylists, makeup artists, and massage therapists to beautify and relax the masses. SoKai Salon supplies its diverse client base with everything from standard cuts and color services to more alternative cosmetic treatments such as colon hydrotherapy and ionic footbaths.
A sliver of industrial London lies just outside the heart of Atlanta—at least, that's how it feels when walking into Flick Hair Studio. Past a silver beaded curtain the salon's centerpiece wrenches away one's sense of geographical permanence: giant, cracked letters spelling "Flick" layer a wall-sized, blue-toned version of the Union Jack. And this industrial-chic aesthetic continues in the stylists' knowledge of modern hair trends, but doesn't limit them. At their freestanding mirrors, they draw from a range of botanical Aveda cosmetics, haircare, and skincare products to create both bold and natural looks. They cut custom styles, give hair a sun-kissed sheen with highlights, and lead lessons on self-makeup application so that clients have the tools to create their own smoky-eye effects or finally become Michael Jackson in Thriller.
