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.
Apryle Blu may be all about making beautiful hair simple, but her career has been far from one-note. The experienced stylist has transformed the tresses of everyone from reality TV stars to dancers at the Soul Train Awards. She brings that same red-carpet attention to her clients at PUSH Salon, caring for their hair using Diva Smooth straightening treatments, Mixed Chicks haircare products, and GKhair shampoos and conditioners. Apryle is especially skilled at maintaining chemically-treated hair, and crafts natural blow-styles with ease. She can also provide extensions for those looking for longer styles, carefully installing strands rather than simply handing clients nametags reading ?Rapunzel.?
A studio done up in glamorous pink, Tiffany blue, and timeless black and white provides the perfect setting for Diamonds & Pearls Image Studio's elegant beautifying services. Although they specialize in natural-looking extensions, the stylists and aestheticians also offer other hair services, such as highlights and silk presses, as well as coloring, nail art, and professional makeup services. While receiving their image upgrades, clients enjoy amenities, such as wine and hors d'oeuvres. The studio is open around the clock, in case inspiration strikes in the middle of the night or a dream horse suggests eyelash extensions.
Owned by mother-daughter twosome Sofia and Maria Poulos, the mission of Salon Marsof is to serve clients in a comfortable, neighborhood-friendly environment, where they can relax, pamper themselves and leave feeling beautiful.
At Saniya Salon & Spa, contemporary salon services meet beauty treatments culled from ancient India, creating an eclectic and stunning beauty portfolio. Stylists cut, color, and curl hair, and adorn special updos with embellishments such as pearls and Maraschino cherries. Estheticians offer facials to combat aging and acne, to restore youth, or to give faces a healthy glow. They also provide modern waxing services to free unwanted hair from faces or body areas, as well as the ancient hair-removal practice of threading. Popularized centuries upon centuries ago, threading uses hand-twisted cotton thread to pull hairs out at the root. And threading is not the only time-tested service that Saniya clients enjoy. A skilled, on-staff Mehndi artist paints lacy, swirling henna designs on clients' hands and arms.
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.
