Texas Tan's two locations each acquaint pallid complexions with a kaleidoscopic array of UV-tanning beds and spray-tanning booths. Like a mansion designed by a Jenga master, the tanning services have multiple levels. Starting at basic bronze beds equipped with external cooling systems, the tanning arsenal ranges all the way to top-of-the-line Platinum beds that tout 360-degree tanning, an MP3-player connection, and facial tanners.
Texas Tan also touts a sunless-spray-tan solution in its VersaSpa tanning booths, which envelop bodies in a golden mist over a mere 46 seconds. Guests step into the airy chambers of the tanning machine, where alternating gusts of pigmented tanning solutions evenly adhere a streak-free bronze to skin. Gilded glows last 5–10 days, allowing patrons ample time to show off their new, natural-looking tans during nights out with friends or while promoting Bikini Awareness Month.
Each of Tangerine Salons' four locations operate under a charitable ethos and the nature-based tenants of Aveda. Aveda's environmentally conscious, naturally derived products infuse all of Tangerine's salon services. Seven tiers of hairstylists—ranging from Protégé I to Master III—handle the hairstyling duties by snipping, highlighting, and conditioning locks. At the Coppell and Cedar Hill locations, the staff dedicates space to an array of spa services, including massages, facial treatments, mani-pedis, and back facials that help eliminate crow's feet on people with eyes in the back of their heads.
The Lash Lounge's highly trained technicians deftly apply extensions to natural lashes in a relaxing, chic setting. Extensions emphasize pretty peepers with synthetic, hypoallergenic fibers and medical-grade glue, sending mascara wands and eyelash curlers into early retirement. Lashes may last up to two months, and refills of fallen lashes are suggested every two to four weeks. While awaiting peeper-framing sessions, patrons can browse The Lash Lounge?s mini boutique, which is stocked with contemporary women's apparel and an exclusive cosmetics line that offers a shade of lipstick to complement any alter ego.
Shelsea Sanchez, an IFBB Bikini Pro contestant and licensed cosmetologist, has always had a soft spot for makeup. After years of adorning her eyelashes with mascara, however, she discovered an easier way to extend her lashes without having to slather on gobs of product or roll them in miniscule curlers. Shelsea now helps other women cut down their morning mascara ritual by affixing individual eyelashes to peepers one at a time. In addition to eyelash extensions, Shelsea also prettifies faces with hair-removal waxing and makeup lessons.
The staff at Styles of India focuses solely on the art of hair removal to shape brows and remove unwanted fuzz across the entire physique. An ancient technique, threading makes use of pure cotton strands, rolled and lifted along the face and eyebrows to remove hair in a straight line—ideal for eyebrows or sculpting sideburns into the style Benjamin Franklin sported: lightning bolts. The technicians at Styles of India are also adept with wax, removing unwanted hair from legs, arms, and bikini lines.
