When Luna Labarca-Norris opened Sweet Escape Salon, she sought to bring her extensive education from institutes such as Matrix, Goldwell, and Tigi to the heads and hairs of men, women, and children. She and her duo of diligent stylists always begin each cut or coloring session with a consultation that uses a mixture of photographs, conversation, and flashcards of salon vocabulary to ensure that clients achieve the look they covet. The hairdressers' expertise lies particularly in advanced coloring techniques such as balyage or multidimensional highlights.
The funky, modern interior sports huge, brightly painted portraits and a pattern of bold, black-and-white paisley on walls, throw pillows, and furniture. A small boutique deals in colorful handmade jewelry and purses with intricately layered leather blossoms decorating the exterior. Teal walls surround the more conservatively appointed salon section, which is accented by little pots and pops of flora on small tables.

She Beauty Studio owner Maria E. Garza—a 14-year beauty-industry veteran—began her foray into the business as a makeup artist for companies such as Lancôme and Chanel. She subsequently expanded her repertoire by studying aesthetics and skin physiology at Austin's Nuvani Skin Institute and by working alongside doctors and plastic surgeons to learn the intricacies of laser treatments and chemical peels. At her Seabrook beauty spa, she lends her expertise to clients with services ranging from spa facials, eyelash extensions, and waxing services to microdermabrasion treatments that slough off dead skin cells, giving the skin a smooth, firm appearance without covering it in marble.
Clusters of softly lit spotlights beam over the comfortable, armchair-style styling chairs at Brazil In Drops Salon & Spa, located in the League City surrounding area. Amid the flattering lighting, hairstylists who specialize in Brazilian keratin treatments thwart frizz and tame unwanted curls or revamp styles with expert cut and color treatments, fortified by Pureology products.
Aestheticians man private spa rooms, where they tend to skin with rejuvenating facials, ultrasonic contouring face-lifts, and bikini waxes that use organic wax. They also call attention to clients' best features with airbrush makeup, lash extensions, and huge cardboard arrows.
Kemah Bella Spa caresses and coddles weary bone covers in an attractive cottage-style home that dates back to the early 1900s. Expert ache eliminators disperse stress clusters during the relaxation massage using a multipronged approach, lulling kinks into a daze with aromatherapy and hot towels before whisking them away with their dexterous digits. The Bellissimo face treatment applies a gentle herbal cleanser and exfoliant designed to wipe out slacking skin cells. An all-natural mud mask rehydrates a parched face faster than white milk on rice. To conclude the spasperience, clients hop into a robe and slippers and grab a cup of herbal brew or grapey adult beverage to sip during the nail-rehabbing mani-pedi.
The name of this serene spa tells no tall tales: it's actually a cabana. Cast in sea-blues and greens, the nature-mimicking color motif runs from the bustling outside in, and with it brings visions of relaxing on a quiet beach. That feeling goes for the treatment rooms too, where blue walls give way to flowing white drapes and wicker furniture, plush massage beds, and live plants. Whether you prefer a Swedish or deep-tissue massage, therapists apply their healing kneads to help destress the day. An anti-aging facial can also help reduce the signs of aging, and a full-body salt exfoliation helps slough away rough skin and any stubborn barnacles.
