Taking Care of Your Temple: Introducing 1245 Salon and Spa’s New Look!!!

Hello World,  Before_and_After (2)

Don’t get it twisted! Just because we are Christians does not mean we have to ignore our outer beauty to work on our inner beauty! In fact, in 1 Corinthians 6:19-20, it says…

 “Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your bodies.”

So when I was invited to tour 1245 Salon and Spa and see the transformation that has been made since the salon and spa was remodeled, I said, “Why not?” As Adrienne Bailon, who is starring in “I’m In Love With a Church Girl,” said, “Jesus didn’t say we couldn’t be fly!”

1245 Salon and Spa, located at 1245 Fowler Street NW in Atlanta near Atlantic Station, unveiled the new look this fall, following a three-month transformation totaling approximately $24,000. Terrell Dinkins, of Posh Interiors, LLC, was the interior designer on the makeover. Below are some of the makeover highlights:

Makeover highlights include:

  • Adding a curved wall to create a separate lobby area
  • Applying blue and green paint colors to provide more of a spa feel
  • Installing two partition walls to expand the dryer room and create privacy in the shampoo area
  • Lightening up the floors from an earlier drab brown to a new light grey
  • Replacing commercial lights in the ceiling with other types of lighting, including pistachio green pendant lights and recessed lighting
  • Creating a photo gallery of client head shots to showcase the work of the salon’s master stylists
  • Completing the salon’s look with new furnishings, decorative accessories and wall art

“At 1245 Salon and Spa, our clients are top priority,” says Terrell Mack, co-owner and master cosmetologist, 1245 Salon and Spa. “This makeover is just one way to show our appreciation to our loyal customers, while creating a home-away-from-home experience for them and our growing clientele. We couldn’t be more excited!”

Not only was I invited to see the transformation of the salon and spa, I was also invited to try out one of their services. I opted to try out a foot detox. Maybe that is what Jesus was doing when he washed the disciples’ feet! I’m just kidding! If you have never heard of a foot detox (which I hadn’t heard of prior to being invited to the salon and spa), it is the process of removing toxins from the body through the pores of your feet. A spa bath is prepared using water, salt and an ion detox unit. As toxins are pulled, the water turns a variety of colors according to the toxins in your body…Below are a few photographs detailing my experience…

Apparently, in order to experience the best results of having a foot detox, you must have the procedure done at least five to six times. Results include an improved immune system, pain and stress relief and improved sleep!
