Finish Salon - Richie Arpino

‘Finish’ full service photography studio slated to open Dec. 1.

Richie Arpino, the owner of Arpino Salon (a mainstay in Buckhead since 1982) is opening a new concept just two doors down from the popular salon.

Called Finish, Arpino’s new photography studio, located on Paces Ferry Place, will be a one stop shop, offering every service imaginable to get its guests “photo ready.”

“First, start your day [at Finish] with a nice pinot noir,” Arpino told What Now Atlanta in an email. ”Then perhaps a soothing massage, a facial and spray tan before I get behind the lens and capture a fantastic picture you have been wanting to get taken, but didnt know where to have it done.”

Arpino, a well known photographer, is also a hair and make-up artist. He has worked with many Hollywood celebrities like Jennifer Tilly, Lesley Ann Warren, Brooke Shields, Andie MacDowell and Queen Noor.

Finish will celebrate its grand opening in December.
