It's one thing to tuck a flower behind your ear as a cute accessory for a midday walk—it's another to have a flower as an updo centerpiece that stays pinned throughout an entire wedding and reception. That demands the attention of a professional, and licensed cosmetologist Kaleigh is happy to oblige. She travels to her clients for hair and airbrush-makeup services, composing glamorous looks for events. She arranges hair into elegant spirals or lets strands hang in alluring waves, and she applies makeup to accentuate each person's natural beauty with expert highlighting and color. These looks have seen soirees such as proms, quinceañeras, and homecoming dances, in addition to wedding ceremonies and nights out on the town.
Dr. Basaldua’s career began more than 20 years ago when he founded a family medical practice in Kingwood. The practice flourished, and in 2003 he opened Optimal Skin and Laser Center to provide anti-aging, weight-management, and aesthetic services. Today, he and his team of medical professionals oversee a number of individualized medical and aesthetic services. The staff and clinic attempt to keep on the cutting edge with the latest clinical research.
At Benita Lash Studio, Novalash-trained technicians use medical-grade products to affix synthetic lashes to their clients' eyes. These lashes are waterproof, sweat-proof, require minimal maintenance, and don’t need to be removed before bed or pie-eating contests. In addition to lash extensions, the studio also offers facials, microdermabrasion, and chemical peels, along with spray tanning and waxing for full-body beautification.
Love Yourself Studio Salon is where hair goes to get relaxed, woven into meticulous braids, fortified with weaves, and above all, customized to its wearer by stylist Sabrina. Boasting a portfolio of twists, curls, and close crops, the studio serves as a destination for natural hair of all lengths and style aspirations.
The stylists at Vita Dulce by Celia tweak and transform hairstyles with beauty products by top brands such as Paul Mitchell, Redken, Aquage, and Kenra. Partial highlights add dimension to ‘dos, and perms make hair curl the way scary dreams or poorly designed rollerblades make toes curl. Hair caretakers cut the locks of both men and women, and they also tame children’s floppy mop tops. Earth-toned floors and walls surround the salon's front desk and private service rooms, which feature padded styling chairs and full-body mirrors that allow clients to monitor their heels for hot-foot pranks.
Professional makeup artist Rachel Tate-Study is on a quest to make the world a more beautiful place, one face at a time. The licensed cosmetician and 23-year spa-industry veteran’s work has been seen on red carpets as well as on E’s Fashion Emergency and in the pages of Bridal Star Magazine. Utilizing vitamin-infused makeup compounds by Franché Mineral Cosmetics, she helps faces to adopt a healthy, radiant glow in time for weddings, parole hearings, and other memorable photo opportunities, and she can even lead lessons that show clients how to accentuate natural beauty using products from their own makeup bag. Her real specialty, however, is permanent makeup––a tattoo-like procedure that delivers permanent pigment to the eyelids, brows, or lips and helps clients to save time and avoid allergic reactions from conventional cosmetics. She also uses the micropigmentation technique to camouflage scars following breast-cancer surgery or other procedures, leading her to receive referrals from countless dermatologists and plastic surgeons throughout the state.
