- Summer is the perfect time to get pampered. From relaxing massages and facials to smooth skin and great hair, you can’t go wrong with any of these services. Here's a look at the Haute 5 summer spa treatments in Atlanta. So read on and hurry up and make you appointments.
Let’s face it, summer heat and perfectly coiffed hair do not go together. For those who find themselves using their flatiron as much as their iPhone, the new Brazilian Blowout is the service for you. Offered at Rumm Color Studio in Alpharetta, this smoothing treatment actually improves the condition of your hair by creating a protective protein layer around the hair shaft to eliminate frizz and smooth the cuticle. The Brazilian Blowout only takes 90 minutes and you can wash it the very next day. It lasts for 12 weeks. After that, you can go back for more or dust off the ‘ole flatiron.

Vitamin C Facial at Oculus
After being out in the sun all summer, it’s time to show your skin some TLC with the Vitamin C Facial at Oculus Skin Care Centre. In case you were not aware, Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant that helps reduce and reverse sun damage while fighting off the environment’s harmful free radicals. It also acts as a mild exfoliator that leaves the skin refreshed, glowing and beautiful. Oculus, located in Dunwoody Medical Center, focuses on a corrective and customized approach to your skin needs.
The Vitamin C facial is available at Oculus Skin Care Centre, located at 5505 Peachtree Dunwoody Rd., 404.843.3636.
Pain is beauty, right? And waxing, especially those usually hidden areas can be very painful. But WAX, Atlanta’s premier waxing studio located in Inman Park, makes the experience slightly more bearable. WAX offers services for both men and women: from brows to Brazilians and backs to the Manzilains (no further explanation needed here). In this spa-like atmosphere, everything is clean and fresh. Oh, and of the "therapists" at WAX are GA state licensed — meaning, they know what they are doing. Where else does an eyebrow wax include a mini massage? That is a pretty sweet deal.
WAX is located at 280 Elizabeth St., Suite A-105, 404.525.8344
The Immuni-Massage at The Spa at Four Seasons Hotel Atlanta
The Spa at Four Seasons Hotel Atlanta is always my go-to for a perfect, relaxing massage. This summer they have a new massage treatment that I cannot wait to try. The 50-minute Immuni-Tea Massage begins with a warm Mandarin and Rooibos tea (known for its skin healing properties) antioxidant masque for the shoulders and back. Organic fruit juice extracts and vitamins are combined to rejuvenate the skin. The treatment is followed by—my favorite—a stress relief massage focused on the neck, shoulders and back. If you have time, there is also a 50-minute Immuni –Tea Facial.
The Spa at Four Seasons Hotel Atlanta is located at 75 14th St., 404.253.3848.
