A lineup of Aquage, Redken, and Pureology products gives the stylists at Up In Tangles an ample palate with which to transform drab tresses into well-coiffed works of art. They paint strands with regular or corrective color to add depth to new cuts and tint eyebrows and lashes to match newly minted hair hues without covering brows with mustache appliqués. Keratin-based straightening systems change up mane texture, along with regular and feather extensions. The stylists can use Jane Iredale mineral makeup or bridal airbrush makeup to put the finishing touches on their masterpiece canvases.
The minimalistic design at Salon JB—think cream-hued ceiling, walls, and flooring surrounding a single line of modern black salon chairs—allows the stylists’ hair creations to really stand out. They cut hair into sleek bobs or face-framing layers. Their stash of hair dye adds golden highlights to manes or camouflages locks before camping trips. They also straighten frizzy hair and add instant length with extensions.
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.

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.
Di Beleza’s owner and aesthetician hails from Brazil, which gives her ample authority when executing her spa's meticulous Brazilian and full-body waxing services. Regardless of whether she’s waxing a female, male, or canine client, she abides by the highest sanitary standards: she never reuses wax, discards all materials immediately after treatments, and starts fresh for the next client. This commitment to safety and quality carries through to the spa’s hair and skincare services. Stylists smooth hair with keratin treatments and provide Great Lengths-certified extensions. Aestheticians brighten up complexions with facial scrubs and microdermabrasion services.
Black, leather seating, elegantly spare walls, and copious light reflecting off the hardwood floors sets the tranquil setting of Singhaar, a salon, spa, and Indian apparel boutique. After aestheticians refresh complexions with facials inside private treatment rooms, and stylists sculpt and color coifs, guests can top off new looks by harvesting pieces from the boutique's multicolored racks. Vivid fuschias, greens, and yellows swim across dresses and tunics in the form of paisley, beaded embellishments, and even zebra print?though no zebras or paisley monsters were harmed in the clothes' creation.
