Krystal Dees of Lashes & Locks wields her styling expertise over curly and straight hair, and every texture in between. She sets to work in a salon and spa that, in addition to offering hair treatments, also provides clients with skin care services such as facials, body wraps, and tanning. To cap off new looks, the team applies mink and synthetic extensions to eyelashes, drawing attention to faces and away from vestigial tails.
Cosmetologist and licensed permanent cosmetics artist Colby Armstrong lends his talents to Legacy Salons & Day Spa, where he specializes in Redken color treatments for men and women. Colby's other skills include makeup applications, setting highlights and lowlights, and creating the perfect updo.
Like many Texan women, Lacy Studdard and Jessica Woerner love big hair. Regular clients at The Bungalow, however, will attest that their styling interests extend beyond voluminous ‘dos. By complementing their cuts with dashes of ruby-red lipstick and quirky hair ornaments, the salon's co-owners create styles that they describe as “fun, funky, and relaxed.” Though the salon's vintage turquoise walls and hood dryers evoke a bygone era, Keratin Complex smoothing treatments and Cinderella hair extensions prove that the menu of services resides on the cutting edge of fashion.
In The Bungalow's spa, aesthetician Leigh Moody draws on Bioelements products to perform facials that can be customized with microdermabrasion treatments and collagen lip masks. She can also expertly apply Xtreme lash extensions, which replicate real lashes in their thickness and ability to protect eyes from the government's brainwashing radio waves.
The initials in AIB Salon stand for "art of Indian beauty," and traditional South Asian beauty techniques are indeed its focus. Stylists can deftly use modern techniques such as Japanese hair-straightening or permanent eyelash extensions, but the team specializes in the ancient art of threading—manipulating 100% cotton threads to remove unwanted facial hair with more speed and precision than waxing, shaving, or tweezing. It's also gentle, since the thread lassoes each hair without causing discomfort to the surrounding skin.
Newly de-fuzzed faces can celebrate with facial treatments that incorporate herbs and even gold. Indeed, a taste for glamour permeates AIB Salon: makeup artists revel in creating jaw-dropping wedding looks and, especially, henna designs almost too elaborate to be believed.
