Good things come to those who wait. Just ask Tiffany Phan, who spent nine years building a base of clients at local nail salons before fulfilling her dream of opening her own. Now that she runs her own business, Tiffany draws on those years of experience to shape, buff, and decorate nails with vibrant polishes. The sound of files brushing against cuticles fills the salon, drowning out the wails of finger puppets as she and her team of technicians perform relaxing manicures and pedicures.

The massage therapists at Horizon Massage and Wellness have noticed something over their more than 18 years in business: an increase in stress among their patients. They do their best to counteract this rising tension with soothing handiwork in styles that range from gently relaxing Swedish massage to prenatal massage to the intense strokes of deep-tissue massage. Not only working out of their Dallas-area locations, staffers occasionally travel to local businesses to perform 15-minute massages on especially rigid office chairs.
Hello Gorgeous Salon and Spa's beauty mavens revitalize selves with the comprehensive Me Time Makeover’s luxuriant treatments. In the course of 2 to 2.5 hours, aestheticians swaddle faces with a pore-opening facial, and stylists tame overgrown head-lawns into pleasantly traversable coiffures with a cut and style. A manicure carefully prunes and paints nails, and a chair massage vies for the simultaneous affection of necks, backs, shoulders, and arms. Faces feel confident as they reenter polite society or mannerless prison yards following a color analysis, makeup lesson, and makeup application.
Who says you have to choose between style and substance? At Image Nation Salons and Medspa, the team focuses on hair and skin treatments but also offers med-spa treatments for healing or more dramatic cosmetic changes. Offering more than simple cuts, the stylists tame hair with color, texturization, and reverse psychology. Facial treatments range from deep pore cleansing for acne to a gel peel designed to minimize fine lines. In the medspa corner, high-tech services include dermal fillers and vein-minimizing sclerotherapy in addition to soothing services like reflexology, Swedish massage, and detoxifying herbal wraps.
A soft glow of gold emanates from within Asha Salon and Spa, enticing guests to enter into its spacious haven covered in sunset-colored hues and irregular amber tiles. But the décor isn't Asha Salon's only distinctive feature. The beauty haven also attracts patrons with a menu of Indian-influenced treatments and bridal packages. Along with henna hair dying and facial threading, guests are beautified with mehandi art, which consists of intricate designs hand-drawn across the back of the hands and over the palms. Back in vibrantly colored treatment rooms, aestheticians ward off signs of aging with herb and fresh fruit-infused facials, while a Shahnaz Husain's diamond treatment exfoliates the outer layers of the skin with finely granulated diamonds. And out on the salon floor, stylists tailor haircuts to meet each clients' desired style, be it a father's buzz cut or a his kid's request for a three-foot pompadour.
