The Lash Lounge's founder Anna Phillips—an advanced certified eyelash-extension trainer—once traveled the nation to impart the art of semipermanent eyelash application to scores of fellow lash artists. Now, at all of Lash Lounge's locations, such artists work to ensure that every guest returns to their day-to-day activities batting fuller, darker lashes. They meticulously apply each synthetic strand to a natural lash with medical-grade glue, imbuing peepers with a customized, natural look that can last up to two months with proper care. Applying lashes of varying lengths, thicknesses, and degrees of curl, they have earned the praise of publications including Allure magazine and Women's Wear Daily.
They also strive to eliminate lengthy daily makeup applications with permanent-makeup services. After a complimentary consultation, a staff of licensed aestheticians and permanent-makeup artists precisely applies permanent eyeliner, lip color, or third eyebrows. For those who prefer makeup that washes off, Anna has concocted her own line of mineral cosmetics, brushes, and primers.
Straw-hued walls and weathered metal accents give an earthy feel to the treatment rooms that ensconce Southlake Skin Care Studio’s clients, who linger beneath a velvet throw during treatments. Nestled within the Suite Escapes Salon complex, Julie Williams deep cleanses skin with European-style facials fortified with vitamins and plant-derived serums. Peels ranging in potency and hard and soft wax arm aesthetes for procedures, and the scents of hibiscus, pumpkin, and berries drift from products, raising fond memories of growing up in a cornucopia.
Whether you're meeting someone's gaze from across the room, making eye contact for the first time with an interviewer, or window shopping for souls, the eyes are at the center of it all. Haute Lash and Boutique's aestheticians specialize in making sure those moments go off without a hitch. They meticulously extend lashes one strand at a time, and they tint and even perm natural lashes and eyebrows to your exact shape and color specs. The aestheticians keep some tricks up their sleeve for the rest of the face as well. Air brushing services even out skin tone, accentuate faces with bold streaks of color, or get clients ready for a girls' night out. While they're waiting, guests can add a little sartorial flare to the mix with the boutique's selection of carefully curated clothes and accessories.

Elixir Salon & Day Maker's stylists add texture to hair with an unconventional substance—marshmallow. Marshmallow root, that is. It's one of the many botanically based Aveda lotions, oils, and creams the salon favors. Their makeups, for example, might be made from Brazilian nut-seed pigment, cinnamon from Madagascar, or the anti-oxidants of ripe berries.
But amid the bazaar of natural products, one still finds the sleek plastic casing of modern technology. Elixir's signature HeadMapping process applies highlights systematically, while the microdermabrasion smoothes away signs of age with a crystal wand. Continuous education keeps the stylists, aestheticians, and massage therapists abreast of the latest trends and techniques in their fields without calling a psychic hotline.
Armed with PCA products, aesthetician Liz Parriette brings about more radiant complexions with a range of customized facials and peels. She draws on natural fruit enzymes and vitamin-enriched serums to give skin a youthful glow. To minimize wrinkles, Parriette performs Botox injections and stimulates the skin with microcurrent impulses. She also accentuates natural beauty with multicolored eyelash extensions and airbrushed makeup.
Trained lash artists—licensed by the Texas State Board of Cosmetology—bolster eyes’ flutterability with eyelash extensions that lengthen and thicken natural eyelashes, lasting for a couple of weeks. Individual synthetic-silk lashes are curved to blend with the natural lash line and affixed to lids one at a time. A basic set subtly enhancing the lashes, while a full set boosts lashes by about 70% for a glamorous look.
