The front doors of Skin Spa Austin Lounge open to a studio with an industrial yet comforting aesthetic, where sunlight spills in through the broad windows and warms the exposed-brick walls and bronze-colored floor. Within this space that both celebrates and seals out the savage urban jungle, aestheticians and massage therapists tend to guests with à la carte and packaged spa services that span facials, massage, waxing, and even LED teeth whitening. Skin Spa's staff prefers organic and pharmaceutical-grade products, stocking lines such as HydroPeptide that teem with active enzymes and botanical extracts.
The Metropolitan Club offers a relaxing spot for Austin's gents to concentrate on work, loosen up, or entertain guests. The men's-only lounge takes its cue from the elegant gentlemen's clubs of Victorian England, minus the calf-length frock coats and steam-powered butlers of those 19th-century haunts. With a three-month membership, you'll enjoy daily access to the club and its amenities, including the locker room, complimentary shoe shines, free WiFi access, and concierge services. Sweat out stress from ill-fated Dracula-hunting expeditions in the steam room, feel the flowing faux-fingers of a massage lounge recliner, get clothing steam-pressed, or lap up a libation at the member's-only lounge and bar. The lounge itself features eight high-def flat-screen TVs, leather lounge furniture, and premium liquor, beer, and wine selections.
You can restore stressed complexions clogged with everyday damages at this locally owned space. Using pure, plant-based, cow-milk-free products from Aveda, you'll be treated to the one-hour Results Focus Facial. An expert, friendly aesthetician will first consult with you to determine skin type before designing a completely customized treatment with personalized products, essential oils, and facial techniques. There are four categories of facial, including Infinity Nature (for normal to dry skin), Air Nature (for dehydrated and older skin), Fire Nature (for irritated skin), and Earth/Water Nature (for normal to oily skin). The treatment will help alleviate environmental damage and signs of stress stemming from accidentally enrolling in medical school.
It wasn’t a coincidence that Aziz Salon and Day Spa was named after the word for “dear friend” or “loved one.” Since its inception in 1973, Aziz has been treating its clients as treasured friends, personably pampering and beautifying them. Knowledgeable and affable staff members take their time with each client as they cut and color hair, blanket nails in dazzling hues, or affix Xtreme eyelash extensions for Xtreme Prom, which involves jumping dirt bikes over limos. Also a testament to its concern and care for its clients is the salon’s use of renowned product lines such as Kérastase, CosMedix, and ZENT, which harness natural ingredients such organic shea butter to gently soothe skin and hair.

Aesthetician Carrie Berry greets each prospective pout canvas in a bright, modern salon adorned with chandeliers. Your signature facial begins with a Wood's lamp-lit skin analysis to illuminate and evaluate subdermal damage. Next, a customized lineup of Priori and Sonya Dakar skincare products go below the surface with earthy, reparative ingredients such as CoffeeBerry extract to cleanse, exfoliate, tone, and moisturize. After your choice of a Priori facial peel or ultrasonic particle-free dermabrasion, Carrie will deploy the plumping powers of collagen to minimize lid-lines and reinflate eyes flattened by repeated squint-sprints. An expertly shaped brow allows for chic communications of skepticism or surprise, while freshly tinted lashes bat impressionable onlookers with a cooling come-hither breeze. Amenities such as an on-site raw food café tend to the rest of the body, preventing nasty inter-appendage squabbling between jealous bellies and newly freshened faces.
