Sylvia, the owner and Master stylist at Lash Cafe, studied cosmetology and aesthetics in Vienna, Austria. After a long stint at a premier European cosmetic company, she directed her attention to her own studio, where she now taps into her myriad skills to beautify clients' faces. Lash extensions are the marquee service, and Sylvia begins each appointment with a discussion to determine what look is most flattering for the client. She then uses silk lashes and Xtreme FlexFusion adhesive, which helps the lashes stay in place for up to 90 days, or possibly longer for those who never ever sneeze. In addition to extensions, Sylvia also offers lash tinting and shaping, as well as permanent makeup for those who want to ditch more than just their mascara wand.
Let it never be said that Lisa Moise doesn't listen to her customers. Years ago, as she was treating one of her clients, the two began talking about how nice it would be to have a salon where haircuts were more collaborative than cookie-cutter and pedicures didn't make people feel invisible from the feet up. Later, that same customer, Carrie McGehee, would join Lisa as a co-founder of Flower Mound Nails & More. Now, the two pursue their original goal, putting customers first during treatments that range from cuts and highlights to expert mani-pedis. As part of their pursuit of excellence, Lisa and Carrie have established strict standards for membership on their team, requiring their techs to be passionate, conversant, and trained in both customer service and relevant trade skills.
Arch Brows takes an organic, ayurvedic Indian approach to traditional spa methods, often incorporating fresh fruits, vegetables, and herbs to beautify and promote relaxation. Although all-natural honey waxing and brow threading are the spa's specialty, skilled aestheticians can also trim the physique with a tummy mask or extract toxins with a seaweed and French clay body wrap. Clients may also solicit a nonsurgical face-lift or papaya enzyme peel to renew the complexion, or request a henna tattoo in the shape of a moustache to fool a local barber.
Joyce Wilson, a cosmetologist at Legacy Salon, prides herself on being able to craft hairstyles for any member of the family. She cuts integrates layers into long hair or texturizes short hair with equal adeptness, but her favorite part of the job is creating highlights.

A short wig toss from Lewisville Lake, Lotus’ skilled techs beautify from the nose up with natural looking eyelash extensions and elegant lash tinting. Clients can also seek mug rejuvenation with a hydrating facial or banish unflattering fuzz with Lotus’ specialty waxing services.
Faces & More, LLC's owner, Lois—a practicing aesthetician herself—doesn't boast of signature treatments and products. "There's no one size fits all," she says. "We listen and choose the best treatment to fit that person's needs." She and her fellow aestheticians not only tailor services to suit their clients, but they always use the best tools for the job, drawing upon products from many different manufacturers. They turn to the Ayur-Medic line for facial compounds to address acne and pigment issues. They choose PCA Skin of Arizona to combat fine lines, wrinkles, and creases from accidentally folding the face into an origami swan. They happily swap organic fruit enzymes for compounds such as lactic acid during peel treatments, because, as Lois says, "The best part is helping a person feel better, as well as look better."
