Even without the peacock-blue walls or the old-fashioned birdcage that sits next to the reception desk, Feathers Beauty Lounge would feel like a place for preening. Inside, Aveda-certified stylists cut and color hair and perform wax treatments and mani-pedis. Like planning an art-museum heist, visiting the salon is fun to do with a big group; clients celebrate special occasions by holding princess parties and bridal showers there.
Diamonds may be a girl’s best friend, but heated styling tools are the friends that make her look gorgeous. Using such tools and their own expertise, stylists at Corpus Christi Beauty Bar curl hair, give it volume, or straighten it for special occasions including first dates, weddings, and payday. They dote on strands while clients sit back in white leather salon stools and sip complimentary signature drinks.
The professional aestheticians at Royal Touch Salon welcome clients with a smile. Their services include everything from haircuts and mani-pedis to sessions in their relaxing massage chair amid bright yellow and cool green walls. The salon also offers a facial machine, which employs heat and pressure therapy and is effective for crow's feet and allergies.
Former Redken certified educator and master colorist Karon Carlisle has spent more than 30 years honing an arsenal of hair-tinting skills.

Karon also vivifies features with makeup and facial waxing.
