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.
The staff at Darque Tan learned the science of tanning through Smart Tan certification, which they rely on to design efficient, safe regimes for each client's skin type. Five levels of PCTan beds and booths can bronze skin with as few as 12 minutes of UV exposure while enveloping skin in cooling mist. Automated airbrush tanning in VersaSpa or Mystic Tan booths create even, natural-looking color that masks scars and stretch marks. Darque Tan's pursuit of convenience is further exemplified with business hours that span seven days a week, a minimum of 20 beds per location, and rec rooms where kids can read and watch TV. A crew of professional cleaners details each of the facilities according to a rigorous 50-point inspection and tips gleaned from reading Mr. Clean's LiveJournal.
In just one session, Metro Tan II Inc. can give bodies a warm, golden glow that's equivalent to spending a week out in the sun. Clients can recline on a state-of-the-art bed as warmers tan their skin and a cool fan keeps them comfortable. Tans come in four levels that range from a gentle bronze to a rich, deep copper. Sunless-tanning systems likewise offer natural-looking, darkened skin, but without the use of UV light. Sign-up for a monthly tanning schedule to keep up your skin tone year round or drop in for a single session to get ready for a special event or to really stick it to that sassy porcelain doll.
Contrary to popular belief, beauty professionals aren’t born with combs or mascara brushes in their hands. They need a place to learn.

After receiving 150 hours of thorough classroom training, these students hone their skills under careful supervision by performing a variety of professional-grade hairstyling, facial, and mani-pedi services on salon clients.
Amanda Walthall recently upgraded her business, Fabulous Esthetics, to incorporate two new locations and a range of additional services. Accordingly, she also enhanced her studio's name, now calling it Absolutely Fabulous Spa. She delivers the increased fabulousness through scientifically-influenced treatments, such as facials, massages, and sunless tanning. She uses time-tested products such as Hydradermie to soothe skin after full glycolic acid peels. She relaxes tense muscles with deep-tissue massages. She also helps people show off as much newly tanned skin as possible with full-body waxing services.
Like any redhead, Jennifer Davis had intimate knowledge of the painful burns that would result when she tried to imbue her fair complexion with a sultry summer glow. Determined to help her fellow Texans achieve a sun-kissed hue without the damaging effects of tanning, Jennifer opened a mobile airbrush-tanning business that has since expanded to multiple salon hubs situated throughout the Dallas metro area.
Using a paraben-free, DHA solution, the salon?s certified airbrush technicians completely envelop frames in a shade tailored to skin tones, leaving a streak-free color that lets patrons avoid the attentions of lovelorn zebras. The tanning solution is applied and dry within 30 minutes, both illuminating bodily hues and covering skin imperfections such as blemishes, cellulite, and stretch marks during its two-week tenure on the skin. The salon also stocks a supply of Norvell products and airbrushing machines, allowing guests to maintain golden skin at home without replacing showerheads with arcade token machines.
