Before a massage or facial at Red Carpet Salon and Spa, clients fill out a consultation card that provides detailed insight on their specific therapeutic or skincare needs. This allows the massage therapist or aesthetician to develop a personalized treatment plan. After the treatment, the spa pro sits down with clients and dishes tips on how they can improve their overall health and well being outside the spa, in their everyday life, on their horse, atop an inflatable tube, in a horse water park. Aside from massage and facial treatments, the salon specializes in Redken haircare services, which are performed in a spacious studio among freestanding salon stations and a reflective floor of black tiles.
If the Stone Mountain location of Fresche Hair Salon & Boutique feels like home, that’s probably because it’s nestled inside a ranch-style house, where salon artists work in rooms filled with rustic decor. The Oakhurst location, on the other hand, has the funky air of an art gallery—amid the stark contrast of kelly-green walls and brown furnishings, a colorful painting perches atop the mirror of every styling station. No matter their surroundings, the staff brings a hospitable and savvy approach to each service. They tend to a number of hair needs, including cutting hair into new looks and adding length with feather or 100% human-hair extensions. Their color services drench hair in enticing hues and strengthening proteins that protect from UV rays and people hucking gum for no reason. Meanwhile, professional makeup artists apply lipstick and blush and hold eyelash-extensions lessons and makeup tutorials.
Located in the Marriott Evergreen, a resort described by an NBC Channel 11 reporter as "like being in another world," The Spa at Evergreen celebrates 10 years of transporting guests to another dimension of relaxation with pampering massage, skin, and nail services. The décor of each of the in-hotel spa’s treatment rooms is inspired by an element to add an air of ritual to massages, facials, and body wraps. In the earth room, dark tones and the soothing scent of sandalwood and teak form a stark contrast to the lavender-colored, citrus-scented wind room, where aestheticians perform facials with Dermalogica products. In the water room, a rain shower in the ceiling rinses mud and seaweed from bodies after exfoliating body treatments or slimming wraps. Flickering candles warm the final treatment space, aptly named the fire room, where soothing massages atop heated treatment tables melt muscles like caramel snowmen.
The original spas were relaxing places for European nobility. The Spa at West Park Court seeks to recapture that luxury with a range of European treatments in gently lit rooms full of flowers and art. Those treatments incorporate European products, including some from Jansseen Cosmetics, a brand that combines aesthetics with advanced pharmaceutical research to beautify skin. There are hard and soft waxes for different kinds of waxing, and a range of makeup, all of which help patrons work towards beauty goals while relaxing like Old World royalty.
Natural Pure Skincare Spa owner Izabella has almost three decades of professional skincare under her belt. Because of this, the aesthetician knows surefire ways to combat acne, hyperpigmentation, and signs of aging. She also de-stresses her clients with massages, evicts unwanted hairs with waxing services, and shapes brows with eyebrow threading, which is much less painful than boosting your beauty with shredded-money hair extensions.
At JetSet Spa & Massage, trained massage therapists kick-start well-being with the restorative power of massage. Proficient in nearly 10 types of bodywork, therapists melt away pain using heated stones, target muscle with deep-tissue treatments, and heal with reflexology sessions. They're also able to help partners to unwind during couples massages and de-stress tired mothers-to-be with prenatal massages designed specifically to relieve the back pain that comes from infants constantly trying to burrow their way through the spine. JetSet also enhances beauty with spa services such as mani-pedis, body scrubs, and facial treatments.
