At Maison de Beaute, she combines her enthusiasm with training and years of experience to transform ‘dos with color, styling, and texturizing treatments, which can be preceded by a complimentary consultation. Her cuts for men and women can be finished in an hour or less, and 15-minute bang trims are performed free of charge.
Clients with beauty concerns seek answers at The Art of Beauty Skin Spa.

If they want smooth, golden skin, The Art of Beauty's specialists have 30-plus years of experience eliminating fat and cellulite with several body-contouring technologies, wax away unwanted fuzz, and apply airbrush tans. And for clients who want to halt large pores or acne, microdermabrasion treatments, facials, and stop signs are available.
Dr. Deirdre Rhoad spent her childhood learning the skills she would eventually need as one of the Austin area's few female plastic surgeons. Her grandmother taught her to sew, and her piano teacher helped her learn how to hold her hands in a steady position. But though those two had an impact on her dexterous fingers, it was her parents and siblings who instilled in her a deep sense of empathy and inspired her to help women feel less self-conscious.
At Rhoad to Beauty MedSpa, the board-certified plastic surgeon and spa medical director Dr. Deirdre Rhoad and her staff do just that with noninvasive skincare services. Molly Teeple removes spider veins and acne, and boosts collagen production with photofacials. To smooth wrinkles, she injects dermal filler into laugh lines, and they slough off dead skin cells with medical microdermabrasion.
The Lash Lounge's founder Anna Phillips—an advanced certified eyelash extension trainer—once traveled the nation, imparting the art of semipermanent eyelash application to scores of fellow lash artists. Now, at all of Lash Lounge's locations, Anna and her team work to ensure that every guest returns to their day-to-day activities batting fuller, darker lashes. They meticulously apply each synthetic strand to a natural lash with medical-grade glue, imbuing peepers with a customized, natural look that can last up to two months with proper care. Applying lashes of varying lengths, thicknesses, and degrees of curl, they have earned the praise of publications including Allure magazine and Women's Wear Daily.
The Lash Lounge also strives to eliminate lengthy daily makeup applications with permanent makeup services. After a complimentary consultation, Anna and her staff of licensed aestheticians and permanent-makeup artists precisely apply permanent eyeliner, lip color, or third eyebrows. For those who prefer makeup that washes off, she has concocted her own line of mineral cosmetics, brushes, and primers.
The technicians at Studio Bella Spa work to preserve clients' beauty longer than a cat's nine lives. Working diligently, the specially trained staffers work to accentuate the arches of eyebrows, the blushes of lips, or even the hues of beauty marks with permanent makeup. The spa's organic teeth-whitening and spray-tanning sessions produce brilliant-white smiles and golden physiques. Meanwhile, microdermabrasion treatments restore and rejuvenate the skin's surface by exfoliating dead skin cells and encouraging cell turnover for brighter, more even skin.
