Under the watchful eye of a board-certified surgeon, Limitless Medspa’s registered nurse and licensed aestheticians polish bodies until they sparkle like new with advanced med-spa treatments. Skilled laser techs deftly treat a variety of woes: they reduce corporal circumferences with the Yolo Curve laser, tighten sagging skin with an infrared laser, and send heated blasts into follicles with hair-removing lasers. Techs also beautify epidermises with dermal-filler injections, chemical peels, and noninvasive microdermabrasion facials, which nourish and soften the skin with a diamond-tip system and PCA Skin products.
What started as a beauty shop operating out of Aisha Khalid's home has now, 20 years later, blossomed into 10 full-service, women-only salons. The aestheticians at Aisha's Salon & Spa were some of the first to bring threading to the faces of Houston ladies, whisking away unruly brows, chin fuzz, and emperor-tamarin mustaches with a thin cotton filament. For body depilation, they turn to traditional waxing, and body polishes and facials leave skin rejuvenated and smooth. Stylists trim, straighten, and color tresses, and makeup artists apply finishing touches with traditional or airbrush products.
From within her private studio at Tuscany Salons & Spa, Perfect Derma's owner and licensed aesthetician, Ghada Salem, keeps tabs on her clients. Compiling a detailed record of the skincare products each guest uses allows her to personalize treatments, which range from photofacials and microdermabrasion to permanent makeup and lash extensions.
Tucked away inside a private room at Posh Salons, independent master stylist Jessica Perez-Paez sculpts and colors hair with an eye toward making clients look and feel their best. She’s a Matrix-certified colorist but will blend in Redken and Paul Mitchell products for more dynamism. Other specialties include keratin smoothing treatments, perms, and the application of hair extensions to lengthen ponytails or pet ponies’ tails.
Selena, the owner of Desert Rose Beauty Salon, sees beauty from a variety of perspectives. Her multicultural salon draws inspiration from a grab bag of traditions to create a space where perms and updos feel at home with intricate henna tattoos and eyebrow threading. She's also adept at more standard fare. Facials imbue the skin with herbal scents or that brighten and even tone. Nearer the extremities, she beautifies hands with manicures, pedicures, and paraffin wax dips—a treatment that earned her a life-time ban from Madame Toussaude's dinner parties.
