After a torn ACL forced her to reevaluate her dream of becoming the first female coach in the NBA, Enyia turned to her other passions—hair and fashion. Her penchant for the X’s and O’s of basketball has served her well in her new line of work. She breezed through her training with Vidal Sassoon, relying on her methodical approach and creativity. Not long after, she opened Enyiaanise Beauty Bar with her mother, Letha Anise, who she had already encouraged to start a natural line of skincare products.
Together, the mother-daughter duo draws on that same line of products—as well as their combined knowledge—to improve appearances with salon services, waxing treatments, and nailcare. As the salon’s popularity has grown, so has Enyia’s list of clients. Whether styling the hair of first-time visitors or regulars such as pop star Muffy, she relies on smoothing systems that tame frizzy strands and a collection of natural lathers that protect hair from split ends and nesting pheasants.
At Skin Confidence, founder and licensed medical aesthetician Kat Johnson creates beautiful complexions through a combination of specialty treatments and deep relaxation. She performs each facial and skin peel with Rhonda Allison products, which replace dyes and artificial fragrances with aromatic essential oils and plant extracts. But Kat does more to boost clients’ moods than simply closing all of their pores one by one; she also helps them unload stress with reiki massage and triggers the body’s detoxification process with reflexology techniques.
Jazmin Spa, which has locations throughout the Atlanta area, caters to its clients' cosmetic needs while still indulging them with a luxurious spa experience. Its massage therapists provide a brief reprieve from everyday stress by using an assortment of therapeutic modalities to soothe tense muscles.

Similarly, its nail technicians elevate straightforward mani-pedi treatments by incorporating anything from warm-lotion massages and exfoliating sea-salt scrubs to peppermint foot soaks and heated basalt stones.
Indulgence isn't the only goal, though—the aestheticians also strive to create dramatic cosmetic changes utilizing products that can't be purchased by the general public as well as advanced spa procedures. PCA peels, which are only administered by licensed healthcare professionals that have been trained to use them, help resurface skin.

The same tender care is given to non-pregnant females and males who opt for the therapeutic massage.
