What started as a beauty shop operating out of Aisha Khalid's home has now, 20 years later, blossomed into 10 full-service, women-only salons. The aestheticians at Aisha's Salon & Spa were some of the first to bring threading to the faces of Houston ladies, whisking away unruly brows, chin fuzz, and emperor-tamarin mustaches with a thin cotton filament. For body depilation, they turn to traditional waxing, and body polishes and facials leave skin rejuvenated and smooth. Stylists trim, straighten, and color tresses, and makeup artists apply finishing touches with traditional or airbrush products.
For the past 15 years, the beauty experts at Sheila's Hair Design have enhanced bodies with cuts and colors, the ancient art of threading, and henna tattoos that are ideal for weddings or turning a row of freckles into Pac-Man fodder. A boutique area showcases clothing and jewelry from Pakistan and India, including traditional pieces from Rajasthan.
Kaaya Salon and Spa's experienced staff primps paws and pampers faces with relaxing manicures, pedicures, and facials. First, nail stylists trim talons, clip cuticles, and buff away all chalkboard-scratching memories. After guests with newly cleaned claws choose their favorite shade of OPI nail polish, technicians varnish fingers and toes with the selected shimmering shade. Next, spa specialists daub visages with pore-cleansing facials, relieving human emoticons of dead skin, excess oils, and downturned parentheses. While the staff thoroughly mollycoddles clients, the subtle, earth-tone décor sparkles in the reflection of sprawling, shiny mirrors.
Avante Laser & MediSpa's expert team makes perfection its mission, striving to fulfill clients' aesthetic wishes with procedures that combine advanced technology with soothing spa services. Complexions can be exfoliated with diamond-tip microdermabrasions or granted lasting enhancement with permanent makeup, and bodies are cared for with waxing and skincare services. True to its name, the med spa employs lasers in a variety of treatments, from laser hair removal, to cellulite- and fat-melting sessions, to fractional skin resurfacing, which gradually minimize the appearance of fine lines and scars. Massage therapy can help visitors shed tension from daily stress or weekly bouts of elephant lifting.
Stripped Waxing Boutique and Spa's troupe of talented aestheticians create sleek skin suits with a spread of beautifying treatments. Using antioxidant-enriched wax that leaves skin nourished, a professional strand puller will extract fuzz lining the lips and over-eye arches during the waxing package. Airbrush tanning coats bone blankets in a refreshing, golden tan without the damaging effects of the sun. The clear, DHA-infused solution applies evenly for a smooth, streak-free glow to transform porcelain figures into cast-bronze figures, perfect for adorning the front of ships.
