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 they're there for an all-day pampering or a simple lunchtime facial, licensed aesthetician Sadaf Badruddin aims to help her clients relax during their brief respites from hectic lives. She nourishes faces with European facials, famous for their deep cleansing, extractions, and steam, and soothes bodies with herbs and aloe vera during body-wrap treatments. Her extensive menu includes microdermabrasion, waxing, and facials for men, and she preps clients for weddings, quinceañeras, and tax audits with glamorous updos and makeup.
The Lash Lounge's meticulous technicians outfit eyes with bouquets of semipermanent fringe. During the 90-minute treatments, technicians apply curled, synthetic extensions to individual lashes with medical-grade glue. Wink enhancers come in a variety of lengths, thicknesses, and curlitures so as to best complement the client's facial form. Once applied, the extensions create darker, fuller lashes that can deliver juicy butterfly kisses without the use of mascara. With proper care and a nightly bedtime story, lashes may last up to one month or until the natural lash falls to its wish-granting fate.

As the owner of Hair Extension Room, she empowers women to go beyond the possibilities of their natural hair with custom extensions, wigs, and feather fittings.

Along with hair lengthening, Toshia’s studio also deftly executes traditional salon services, including haircuts, coloring, and straightening.
