5 Ways to Prep for Summer

Here’s your checklist to get ready for sunshine.  


At Sugarcoat, those looking to pamper themselves can do so in the form of long-lasting designer polishes (think Christian Louboutin, Chanel and more).


Grab a fresh spray tan in case you missed spring break somewhere tropical. Spray Studio will take care of your faux I-just-went-to-Mexico glow without any of the sun damage—but unfortunately won’t bring you an Aperol spritz. $55, 5590 Roswell Road NE, Ste. 250, 404.256.0777

Banish bikini waxes with electrolysis and laser hair removal from certified clinical electrologist Jan Buckley-Levenson of Dermatology Associates of Atlanta, one of the only practices in the city that offers both services. Sessions from $30, 5555 Peachtree Dunwoody Road NE, Ste. 190, 404.256.4457

Upgrade your blonde by paying a visit to Steve Hightower Hair Salon & Day Spa, where you can add on an efficient and relaxing Repechage seaweed express facial (30 minutes for $68) while you’re waiting for your balayage to set. 646 Lindbergh Way NE, 404.264.9006

Breeze by Tootsies to see the refresh at its new location at Buckhead Exchange and pick up 90-degree weather, easy breezy dresses from brands like Rhode Resort, Camilla and Parker, as well as accessories from fan favorites like Cult Gaia and Furla. 3167 Peachtree Road NE, Ste. O-P, 404.842.9990

Trick out those toes at one of Sugarcoat’s four locations, where you can upgrade to the Escape to Fiji pedicure package ($50), which includes hot stones on your tired feet. Look for favorite brands like Essie and CND, as well as the salon’s proprietary brand of posh polishes. Multiple locations
