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.
The grooming staff at Pearl Beauty Salon plucks follicles from myriad facial and bodily areas through gentle threading or warm waxing treatments. Fuzz hunters employ wax to smooth out skinscapes and threading experts drag a twisted-cotton thread over hirsute facial areas including the upper lip or eyebrows. Taut fibers trap hair and lift it out of the follicle in a process that can be less painful than other hair removal options and also exfoliates the skin. Like attendance in a rigorous exercise class, threading can lead to fewer and thinner hairs returning after successive sessions. Patrons can mix and match threading areas to deforest growth all over the body or focus on the same zone as a cover story for invisible tattoos.
At Celebrity Beauty Waxing, aesthetician Courtney Berry uses her unique—and strip-free—waxing technique to gently and swiftly remove hair from nearly ever part of the body. She transforms stubbly below-the-belt areas into silky smooth terrains with bikini, Brazilian, and buttocks waxing, and keep gams smooth with treatments for the lower or full legs. Further north, Courtney masterfully shapes brows into flattering arches or intimidating triangles, and eliminates peach fuzz from upper lips. Aside from waxing, the aesthetician combats breakouts and aging with three types of facials.

During Lorina Coleman's career as an on-camera and print model, she had occasion to work with all manner of make-up artists. Watching them work their beautifying wizardry inspired her to learn the tricks of the cosmetics trade. At More than Makeup, located within Vita Da Lux Spa, she shares these pro tips with her clients as she custom blends bottles of foundation for everyday make-up applications and gussies up brides before their big day. To bring eyes to the forefront, strip, tab, and mink eyelash extensions leave lids looking runway ready, and waxing services prep bodies for days at the beach wearing newly woven body-hair sun hats.
