Lifelong friends Teresa Fisher and Kaylyn Sisk took the most important risk of their lives together: they traded an eight-hour workday for an entrepreneurial path that would also allow them to spend more time with their loved ones. After doing extensive research, they combined their experience in the cosmetology and tanning industries and opened Tan 2 Glow, providing UV-free tanning. In addition to earning several certifications in the field, Teresa and Kaylyn also traveled to West Hollywood to train with Infinity Sun?a company whose tanning formulas are beloved by celebrities seeking everything from subtle tans for the red carpet to obvious tans for stealing all a room?s attention.
With their newfound knowledge, Teresa and Kaylyn started their business by offering mobile tans and tanning parties while working out of a sophisticated salon. Eventually, they opened their own studios in Fort Worth and Denton, where they now mist bodies with FDA-approved, all-natural, and paraben-free tanning solutions. In addition to one-time spray-downs, they also offer memberships and bridal packages. When they aren't bronzing bodies in-studio, Teresa and Kaylyn host spray-tan socials with gift bags that make the day special for bachelorette parties, birthdays, and solar eclipses.
Tan Evolution doesn't mess around with equipment that isn't top-notch. For example, the establishment’s Ergoline and Versa Spa tanning beds and booths possess many features that help make bronzed bodies a reality: high-pressured lamps, body-contoured acrylic, and 500-watt facial and shoulder tanners. But the Smart Tan-certified staff is also on hand to help clients obtain a beautiful full-body tan. They’ll customize a plan for each customer to make sure the tan suits their body. Tanning is the marquee service here, but Tan Evolution offers other services, such as eyebrow and facial threading, and eyelash extensions.
Plush Beauty Bar's hot-pink walls and zebra-print furniture belies the funky, fashion-forward focus it fosters in each of its services. It bolsters appearances with spray tanning and signature lash extensions that give clients a glamorous look to last for days. Meanwhile, aestheticians cleanse complexions with facials that incorporate steam exfoliation and the chance to throw in add-ons such as paraffin dips, chemical peels, or novelty mustaches.
Committed to styling hair without the use of scissors, razors, or chemicals, Blash Style & Lash Boutique's stylists infuse strands with Vietnamese botanicals to garner a healthy, hydrated shine while pampering scalps and complexions with relaxing beauty treatments. Stylists massage noggins with a dollop of Kim Vo shampoo customized to each client's hair type, destressing headscapes with every sudsy knead while infusing hair with hydrating Vietnamese botanicals for a smooth, luxurious result akin to that of playing a chocolate saxophone. Faces then bask in the skin-freshening custom facial cleanse, which draws upon therapeutic waters culled from the Mont Sainte-Odile springs in southern France to bring forth clear, radiant complexions. Stylists then blow-dry and style hair into natural, glamorous 'dos without the use of chemicals or rubber cement.
Massage therapist and aesthetician Sharon Stone?no relation to hot stones?complements her extensive massage and skincare training with a fierce passion for her chosen field. She spent more than a decade working in the corporate world, and when she realized that the drab cubicle walls were failing to nourish her soul, she turned her lifelong interest in massage into a new career.
Sharon goes above and beyond in every treatment she conducts. When administering a facial or a peel, for instance, she takes time to educate her clients about their own skin type. And when she performs a soothing massage?prenatal, sports, hot-stone, and deep-tissue modalities are among her many areas of expertise?she customizes each massage stroke to the client's individual needs. Sharon offers this same personalized approach during her waxing treatments, body wraps, and lash-extension services, all with the goal of improving her clients' sense of self and overall well-being.
Eyelash extensions are the specialty at Dep Boutique, which is why its technicians are certified in single- and multiple-layer applications using Lôngmi Lashes. These specific extensions have a tapered root end and vary in length, curl, and width, which allow the techs to customize each look to the client's liking, be it natural, cat eyes, or dramatic. But highly trained skill sets aren’t just touted by the spa's eyelash extensionists. Dep’s permanent-makeup technicians also use specialized techniques such as feathering as they tattoo brows, lips, and eyelids with permanent ink. This gives clients the appearance of wearing natural makeup and the peace of mind knowing that it won't melt off when they take their summer vacation to the sun.
