By performing services with skill and finesse, Siggers Hairdressers' trend-wise stylists travel the world to stay up-to-date with fashion capitals’ latest trends and maintain Siggers' Intercoiffure membership for highly prized salons since 1977. When they aren't cutting, tinting, and straightening coifs, the team members sculpt elegant updos for weddings and primp hands and feet with mani-pedis. Siggers also specializes in balayage, a highlighting method that creates more natural-looking sun-kissed streaks. Stylists accomplish this look by painting each highlight by hand, moving from base to tip in a sweeping motion borrowed from Van Gogh's self portraits. Clients longing to boost their beauty quotient further can take makeup lessons with Suni, a makeup artist and educator who has spent 25 years working with celebrities and whose resumé boasts features on commercials, films, magazines, and TV’s Extreme Makeover.
After working under platform artists for Redken and Paul Mitchell, master cosmetologist Carlos Flores opened Aqua Salon and Day Spa, a Paul Mitchell focus salon that emphasizes continuing education and training for its styling team. During services, the team unholsters premium products such as Aquage and Mitch, a Paul Mitchell line developed especially for men. Because the spa regularly styles both ladies and gents, the decor is neutral and posh, like the Supreme Court’s dressing room. Dramatic plants sprout from vases scattered around the spa, and suede seats and a cowhide rug decorate the lobby.
Heady aromatherapy scents fill the air within Pretty Faces Skincare Studio’s intimate and inviting spa suite. The appointment-only studio allows guests to fully indulge in their pampering desires, from facials and peels at the hands of licensed aestheticians to laser treatments, waxes, and massages. The skin-savvy team uses professional, medical-grade products during services, eschewing antiquated means of exfoliating facial skin, such as rubbing cheeks against an old oak tree.
Accented by warm lights and soothing music, Massage Associates of Atlanta, LLC relaxes minds and muscles with three types of massage and therapeutic foot-reflexology sessions. Each client partners with a licensed massage therapist to customize the session, choosing Swedish, deep-tissue, or neuromuscular techniques to unwind knots and alarm clocks lodged between the shoulder blades. Tension and pain are relieved during reflexology and neuromuscular treatments, in which the therapist applies pressure to specific areas to produce sensations in other parts of the body. Deep-tissue sessions release tension, and the long, flowing strokes and focused kneading of the Swedish modality inspire envy in Olympic swimmers and bakers easily distracted by shiny cake pans.
