There was once a time when we could call on a Wednesday to book a Saturday appointment with Robin at GROW. But with a move to an expanded salon in Decatur Station (the old location burned down) and its new status as a Bumble and Bumble salon — taking stylists and colorists to NYC to get up to speed on the latest techniques — we now have to book our Saturdays a month in advance. With an additional Reader’s Choice this year, it’s safe to say our little beauty secret is out.

Tucked among the auto shops and family steakhouses of east Cobb County is THREE-13 SALON SPA & BOUTIQUE. The stylists and spa techs who populate this bastion of near-painful hipness probably have more tattoos and piercings than you do, and they've likewise got the cajones to flaunt a flaming orange dye job.

THREE 13 gained notoriety after Rob Lowe, in town for the 1988 National Democratic Convention, was sued for videotaping his sexual exploits with an underage shampoo girl who worked at the hot-pink Marietta salon. Like in Lowe's heyday, Three 13 remains a virtual disco-den manned by pierced and tattooed stylists with a penchant for fluorescent hair dye and S&M-inspired garb. If anything, the Lowe scandal helped make this hip oasis in the bland desert of Cobb County even more popular with soccer moms and mallrats. Three 13 is a 25-year institution now, a high-quality, full-service salon that is "the" place OTP to get current cuts and color, as well as massages, manicures, bikini waxes and makeovers. And its new digs one mile south of its former location are quite glamorous, in that "nouveau riche" kind of way. Except for the moody, blue shampoo room, this isn't one of those serene, Zen-like salons where Enya tunes lull you into a stupor. Three 13 is all techno music and hot stylists that leave you feeling fabulous. "2663 Canton Road, Marietta, 770-427-3761. www.three-13.com" less...

Basic bob, long locks or pretty pixie, AMBROSIA can cut however you want - and color with the utmost impressive high and lowlights. Bring in a picture, go for your tried-and-true cut, or revamp your look with a cutting-edge work of art. Any which way, you put your treasured tresses in good hands and walk out drop-dead gorgeous. Well, with gorgeous hair anyway. The staff is honest, which is essential to getting the cut that most flatters you. Stylists offer suggestions to the clients and each other, so it often seems as though the whole salon is catering to you. Although they take walk-ins, appointments are recommended - they get BUSY.

But they remember one salient point: You are the one that has to live with the haircut. So they work with you to find a cut that suits your lifestyle. And if you're perfectly content with that same straight-line bob that you've had for 10 years, well, they will give you just that. Without attitude. Superior colorists, too.

What makes them cool is partially that they are so elusive (think secret club) and mainly because they do it all: extensions, braids, dreads and color. Their belief that even "normal" people get dreads doesn't hurt their appeal either. Find out when they are due to arrive again at www.hairpolice.com. less...
