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.
Though many salons tout themselves as eco-friendly, Keep Austin Gorgeous, a certified-organic boutique, backs that claim up with a fleet of organic products and a marked absence of parabens, formaldehyde, and ingredients tested on animals. At the center of this whirlwind of natural beauty stands founder Brizy Tait, who wields the earth-embracing products as she readies local celebrities, such as reggaeton singers Angel y Khriz, for gigs and television appearances.
Tait’s staff shares in the dedication to healthy beauty products. The mane masters and aestheticians use items from 100% Pure Cosmetics, Kevin Murphy, and Xtreme Lashes during appointments and dole out advice in their Green Girl Guide on swapping out chemical-laden makeup for nourishing cosmetics.
Dr. Lawrence Broder of Beleza Med Spa began his 16-year career in surgery and primary care, but has shifted his dedication to medical aesthetics, helping people reshape their bodies and evade signs of aging. He continues to build on his surgical knowledge with coursework and bihourly games of Operation, and has slimmed more than 500 physiques with laser-driven SmartLipo and smoothed hundreds of complexions with DOT (dermal optical thermolysis) resurfacing treatments. Dr. Broder supervises each of Beleza's locations, ensuring that every confidence-boosting injection, augmentation, lift, and peel is done with expertise and professionalism.
Since opening in 2007, Austin Sutra has accumulated a formidable following due to its skillfully applied semipermanent hair extensions and permanent makeup. Certified technicians enhance eyelashes and hairdos with high-quality products from NovaLash, Xtreme Lashes, Great Lengths, SHE by SO.CAP, and other leading extension companies. Staffers also use iron-oxide pigments to permanently tattoo bodies with eyeliner, eyebrow shading, pencil-thin mustaches, and other makeup essentials without damaging clients’ skin or hair. Austin Sutra’s specialty services are accompanied by a handful of additional aesthetics-altering treatments, including chemical peels, eyebrow threading, and tattoo removal.

Staffers can augment classic mani-pedis with the application of acrylics, gel polish, or solar-resistant pink-and-white nails, or deepen relaxation with the soothing ministrations of sea-salt scrubs, mud masks, and the warm kneads of hot-stone or oil massages. Technicians extend their treatment prowess with a full spa menu of facials, body waxes, eyelash treatments, and permanent-makeup applications, each working to accent patrons' natural radiance without painting them with gold leaf.
