Megan Smith spent 10 years in the corporate world before returning to her first love?making people more beautiful. When she started A Lash LifeStyle by JMeganMarie! in 2009, it was a one-woman operation and she did one thing: applied eyelash extensions. Today, she owns and operates two locations?one in Dallas and another in Atlanta?, where hopeful extensionists can take classes for certification.
After a free consultation, customers choose from three levels of drama, to get 55, 70, or 80 lashes added to each eye. These natural-looking extensions are added to natural lashes, where they'll stay until the natural lash sheds or runs away from home. Lashes should stay lush for two to three weeks, at which time Megan recommends returning for a refill appointment.

The experts at Fountain of Youth MD know that looking youthful also means feeling energized. In this spirit, their facials combat signs of aging, while also incorporating luxurious extras, from blackhead extractions to the eyebrow cleanup that prevents brows from growing into a sweatband. Their microdermabrasion also brightens complexions, buffing away the outer layer of dead skin with a diamond-tipped Viora Pristine apparatus. However, the face is not their exclusive focus?the team also fosters full-body wellness with acupuncture, chiropractic adjustments, and custom diet plans.
Owner and master cosmetologist Monique Broussard Perry envisions her salon as a multicultural haircare haven that tames locks of all colors, lengths, and textures. Foil highlights splash hair with one- or two-toned color, and a relaxer-and-texturizer session tackles frizz, waves, and curls. Sulfate-, salt-, and paraben-free products from Pravana Naturceuticals enrich each session by fortifying strands with nutrients and moisturizers. A complimentary brow wax is tacked onto each appointment, and most services also include a shampooing, a conditioning treatment, and a consultation that helps clients to break bad haircare habits such as brushing with a sticky bun.

Dye is also licensed and highly skilled aesthetician, beautifying mugs with facials and elegant silk eyelash extensions.
