To get an idea of the kinds of services offered at Carrollton Square Salon & Spa, you need only look up. In one of the treatment rooms, a tent hovers over the massage bed, ready to catch clouds of toxin-dispersing steam. In another room, the ceiling’s wooden bars allow trained ashiatsu practitioners to buoy and balance themselves while massaging clients' backs with their feet. The only thing you'll find on the ceiling of the relaxation room is soft, recessed lighting and the trapped cartoon-bubble sighs of stress relief left behind by previous guests.
The salon and spa harnesses the historic charm of downtown Carrollton and is filled with friendly, down-to-earth staffers. This combination won over readers of the Carrollton Leader, who voted it the Best Spa and Best Massage in 2012.
After 18 years spent helping her clients get the hairstyles of their dreams, Kara Evans was finally able to realize her own lifelong dream of opening her own salon. Since March of 2012, she’s helmed the wheel of Bella Tula Salon, where her scissoring and hair coloring skills are complemented by other aesthetic services such as special occasion makeup. Hair remains her greatest passion, however, so she pulls products by Kuene and Pureology to aid her as she tends to the tresses of both men and women. Beyond custom cuts, her specialties include corrective color and thermal straightening, as well as children’s mohawks, which give kids the extra inches they need to finally ride roller coaters by themselves.
Whether their clients seek relaxation or beautification, the staff at Images Salon delivers with a wide range of salon and spa services. Manicurists pamper hands and feet with hydrating manicures and pedicures, prettifying nails with long-lasting Shellac polish. Massage therapists perform treatments aimed purely at relaxation, augmented with aromatherapy or scalp massages, which use warm oil to soothe skin and prevent brain freeze. In the salon, stylists create new looks with everything from cuts and conditioning to keratin straightening treatments, extensions, and wig customization. Here, the stylists specialize in services for hair of all ethnicities, including natural styles.
Though the talented stylists at New Image Beauty Salon spend much of their time renovating outmoded coiffures and evicting unwelcome strands, they also focus their beauty-boosting expertise on refreshing complexions with a variety of skin treatments. The beauticians keep their scissors, flat irons, and waxing wands in tow six days a week, easily scheduling appointments for regular upkeep or emergency waxing sessions when bear costumes refuse to come off. New Image’s glycolic facials and peels launch faces toward epidermal excellence, and their threading services reshape bushy brows into slim eye accents.
Roman Hair Salon’s eponymous owner channels more than two decades worth of styling experience to lead her team in transforming tresses. Roman specializes in color matching, giving clients a uniformed hue or helping manes blend in seamlessly with kitchen walls. Her stylists, meanwhile, perform flattering cuts and straightening treatments. The staff also helps clients prepare for special events with updos, waxing services, and confidence-boosting pep talks.
Hardwood floors and tan walls surround modern spa equipment as candles softly illuminate the treatment areas. Inside the sleek treatment rooms at Valiente Salon & Spa, skilled specialists pamper guests from head to toe with services including haircuts, massages, and pedicures.
