For the last 6 years White Salon and Spa has been a part of my glam squad. From retro chic, bigger than life curls, keratin straight sleek hairstyle, to the alluring sexiness of Victoria's Secret velvety soft and come touch my hair style. White Salon and Spa has been there with my journey and has styled my hair for every soiree and for every event that I have been privileged to design and host.

With the launch of PaperGlass' Five Series featuring our collaboration with Bloomingdale's Fashion Maven & the upcoming Power Lunch Series both at the super posh and swanky Atlas inside St. Regis, we are ecstatic to partner with White Salon and Spa featuring master stylist and color expert Wanda Barrett as PaperGlass' official hair salon partner.

My goal is to make sure all of my clients walk away with breathtaking color, cuts and hair extensions that are low-maintenance, versatile and suited for their personality.

Q&A: You recently joined the team at White Salon and Spa in Buckhead as one of the master stylist & color specialist, what exciting trends are there to look for this spring and summer? Spring and summer trends will be more of the bohemian look by adding braids or a micro plaits to your locks. It will be a simple way to chic up your hair. The very bold mushroom haircut is back, your will see it in many looks. From the very short and bold Vidal Sassoon look to the Michelle Pfeiffer's look in Scarface. The ponytail of course! The higher up on the head and sleeker the better. As for makeup the fresher the face the better, especially during the day. And at night, a bold lip color or eye color will add just enough pop.

Hair maintenance is a must to make your mane look healthy. How often should one visit their stylist and what special service does White Salon and Spa offer that is truly unique? Hair maintenance with your stylist is a must, but a good hair product regiment is the key when you can’t make it to the salon often. Hair cut every 4-6 weeks for women and men ever 3-4 depending on the client hair and schedule. Color services from 4-8 weeks. At White Salon and Spa the staff is very well rounded and the level of talent and expertise is off the charts. But I would say we are truly unique for our bridal services and color services and hands down the best blowouts.

You must be thrilled to be the chosen stylist to style the very first Bloomingdale's Fashion Maven and the models. What style do you have in mind for the Fashion Maven event? I am very excited and honored to have been chosen. We’re going very glam and avantgarde with the Five Series Grand launch!

What hair tips or hack do you have that we should know about? Shampoo at least 2-3 times a week or have a good dry shampoo on hand. Always condition the hair no matter what. Brush or comb the hair daily. Hair Products are the key to maintaining your style.

Atlanta is known for every night, there's a glamorous impromptu gathering to attend. What quick trick do you have to look fabulous from an everyday office look to a quick last minute glam evening style? Always have 3-5 hair pins or some type of hairclip in your bag, finger your hair loosely and just pin and you will have the best last minute glam look....

White Salon and Spa is one of the must go to hair salon in Buckhead and conveniently located near the Shops at Buckhead. What exciting things should we look for in the next couple of months at White Salon and Spa? White Salon and Spa is the official salon for PaperGlass and we will be attending the upcoming exciting events for the Power Lunch Series and the Five Series. All will be held at St. Regis Hotel and I will be offering complimentary haircuts with any color service! This is a limited offer and expires December 31, 2017 so be sure to take advantage of this special offer!
