Inside Salon Isis, a cadre of stylists transform ‘dos with high-quality products from Moroccanoil, KMS California, Biomega, and Goldwell Color. They flatter features with precision cuts and turn frizzy curls into smooth, manageable manes with keratin treatments. Skilled makeup artists are also on hand to accentuate natural beauty or lengthen lashes with extensions.
The experienced stylists at Kingdom Kuts welcome kids of all ages to their private, kid-friendly suite. Young ones can blow bubbles, enjoy a lollipop, or take in a film while waiting their turn, and older kids can play video games. Book online to avoid a wait.
After meeting in beauty school, friends Rachel Nelson and Mara Malzone envisioned their very own studio for transforming hair and pampering clients. Since becoming the co-owners of Karma Salon & Spa, the passionate duo's dream has come to life, like Pinocchio after he met a genie in a bottle. The two women traveled the world to train with such renowned names as Vidal Sassoon and Wella, and they used their newfound know-how to assemble a crack team of stylists, who overhaul coifs with texturizing treatments or an Italian line of ammonia-free color. Staffers also revivify skin with organic facials and relax muscles with massage therapy. Foot treatments such as the Mind Eraser soothe lower limbs with a honey-and-sugar scrub and fragrant lavender mask while ousting painful kickball-related memories.
The licensed stylists and aestheticians at Beauty Secret Salon may have a few trade secrets up their sleeves, but there's one thing they never try to hide: their clients' natural beauty. They merely emphasize features that are already stunning with fashion-forward haircuts, keratin straightening treatments, and spa services that include facials, mani-pedis, and eyebrow threading. Clients regularly stop in to have their legs waxed, only to stay and get a henna tattoo of a floral design or a particularly complex home address.
Stylist and LH Artisans co-owner Jason Lavender does not set up shop in a strip mall. Rather, he primps tresses in an elegant two-story manor that has recently been restored to full splendor, but whose original construction was in 1872. And if you haven't had a haircut since that auspicious year, Jason can help you out. Using L'Oréal Professionnel products, he shampoos, cuts, and styles hair. He can also add color through highlights or single-process treatments. To increase the odds that someone can inherit his salon's digs in another 140 years, Jason and his co-owner give back to the community in between haircuts, contributing to the North Gwinnet Cooperative, the American Cancer Society, and CHRIS Kids.
Owners Cathie Politis Fennell, Phil Fennell, and Olga Politis foster a collaborative approach at Salon Greco The European Day Spa. Every team member possesses a specialty within their field—for example, a massage therapist specializing in neuromuscular therapy, and a stylist who focuses on coloring—which means an expert is always available to consult with clients.
The salon's decor incorporates a granite reception desk, wall art as circular as a child's logic for why she should get a soda, and elegant chairs and rugs that match the ornate earth-tone floor. Stylists welcome guests into this environment before beginning each appointment by considering their subject's face shape and hair texture. They can also help clients combat thinning hair with restoration treatments. At the spa, aestheticians, nail technicians, and massage therapists wait on guests with relaxing treatments for the whole body, including nonsurgical face-lifts with the Neurotris facial-rejuvenation system.
