Nate of Beauty by Nate reinvents clients from the neck up with a variety of hair-care services. Appointments begin with a quick discussion of what a client wants in their new ‘do, be it long sweeping layers, a chic bob, or a comfortable nest for their pet robin. From there, Nate uses scissors, color treatments, and relaxers to transform tired looks into chic, new styles. Beyond haircuts and color treatments, he can also smooth curls and battle frizz with original or express Keratin Smoothing treatments.
Licensed stylist Theresa Casanares believes that a freshly styled 'do can transform the way a person feels about herself. Located inside Sola Salon Studios in Katy, her newly opened salon, Salon Centre, is a warm and welcoming beauty spot for clients ready for a new look. Specializing in rich color and on-trend haircuts, Theresa and her staff of stylists pay close attention to each person in their styling chairs. They make sure colors suit skin tones and clients can maintain their new looks at home. Clients pop in for a hair-sleeking Brazilian blowout, or professional makeup applications in advance of a big night out. Refusing to subscribe to just one product line, the stylists at Salon Centre use their favorite products from Aloxxi, Surface, and Mizani lines to bring out the best in their clients' hair.
Some hair-straightening products that claim to be formaldehyde-free include aldehyde compounds, which are similar to the carcinogen formaldehyde. Side effects may include nosebleeds, headaches, vomiting, and respiratory problems, among others. Learn more about the health risks here.
At Skincare by Janell, the road to beauty is paved with grape extracts, pineapple enzymes, and rosemary basil masks. A 12-year veteran of the skincare industry, Janell combines her vast experience with a little help from Rhonda Allison products and a host of tropical serums, in order to treat her clients to facials that are as relaxing as they are nourishing.
There’s the Maui spa facial, for example, which uses vitamins and fresh Hawaiian pineapple to soften signs of aging. Or, the blemish control facial, that includes anti-bacterial masks to heal inflamed tissue. There’s even a gents' facial, which addresses male-specific skin problems and a teen facial that strives to help young people relax after a long day of eye-rolling. In addition to facials, Janell also offers microdermabrasion and lash and brow tinting, and can wax away unwanted hair from nearly anywhere on the body.
Tailor Made Hair Designs' proprietor Gerald Harris knew he made the right career decision when he found himself with more than 20 clients his senior year of barber school. He went on to graduate in the top of his class from Houston's Modern Barber College and now works alongside stylists Charlotte Williams and Churtee Phillips, creating new looks with everything from routine haircuts with fades to full perms.
Far more than a mere hair salon, Tailor Made Hair Designs also offers massages, waxing, and makeup applications, and it maintains a positive connection to the community by offering monthly haircuts for the homeless.
As part of the team at D'Niques, Tiara Jones puts her heart into each service, hoping to bring people into a family of clients at a salon whose credo is "where beauty must be accommodated with love." With that in mind, Tiara performs haircuts for women and children and can help clients care for their hair with repairing conditioning treatments and hairstyles. She works with natural hair and chemically treats locks with relaxers and perms.
The stylists at the locally owned SH Salons cut, style, and revitalize coiffures using high-end haircare products from brands such as Shiva, Silkology, and Clio. They also straighten locks by applying keratin treatments and relaxers, forgoing the now-defunct practice of hammering them over an anvil. Dedicated to bringing out clients’ beauty from head to toe, the experienced staff can also apply makeup or polish nails with dazzling hues.
