Situated in the heart of chic and trendy Uptown, the lavish hotel is all about pampering, whether it’s a Southwest-inspired dinner at celebrity chef-driven Fearing’s, cocktails in the Rattlesnake Bar, complimentary guacamole in the lobby or walking through the art-filled public areas before cozying up in a guest room. There, visitors can experience amenities that include gourmet coffee and tea, twice-daily housekeeping, complimentary overnight shoe shine and separate bath and shower with a luxurious rain shower head.

Ashley Bristo draws upon her training at the Aveda Institute to create beautiful styles for men, women, and children. Along with cuts and color, she revamps hairstyles with extensions, relaxers, and Brazilian blowouts, and her bridal-hair services help women look even more beautiful on their special day or any old Saturday spent trying on old wedding gowns.
The recipe for the runway-ready styles that emerge within Eleven 11 Hair Studio begins with its location: a 3,000-square-foot studio designed by architect Eddie Maestri and interior designer Jamie Carroll, situated in Dallas's luxurious Uptown neighborhood in front of Hotel Zaza, and across the street from Hotel Crescent and the Ritz Carlton. In this spa-like setting, stylists?many of whom also serve as educators for leading beauty companies?call on both time-honored and cutting-edge techniques to create stylish, flattering looks for men and women.
The service menu goes far beyond haircuts and styles to include hair extensions and bold color treatments ranging from classic highlights to balayage, a freehand technique that creates a gradient ombre effect to suggest time spent lying on the beach or coloring your hair in a sunset. The staff can transform hair's texture, too: Japanese straightening treatments leave hair smooth and straight until it grows out, and Brazilian Blowouts control curl and boost shine for up to three months. Aesthetic experts also perform makeup applications and bridal services. The salon extends its regular Tuesday through Saturday business hours to include services by appointment on Sundays and Mondays, so clients with strapped schedules can always find a time that works for them, seven days a week.
Is a salon that specializes in creating an “oasis of calm” for our clients. The salon feels vibrant, yet it doesn’t overwhelm… and everyone needs a little relief every now and then. In addition, we have an outstanding team of specialists offering a range of hair care needs.
Bollywood Stylz's staff specializes in the ancient Indian practice of threading eyebrows, masterfully clearing away rows of hair to form crisply defined brows that lend eyes a striking frame. They gently twist threads to catch unwanted strands and lift them from follicles on eyebrows, stray facial hairs, or necks. The process avoids the irritation that comes from waxes, benefitting those with sensitive skin or those who are themselves made out of wax.
In addition to threading, the stylists trim and color tresses, wax legs and bikini lines, cleanse pores with facials, and pamper guests with other salon services. Another in-house specialty is the intricate, reddish-brown designs of traditional henna body art.
