Each of Tangerine Salons' four locations operate under a charitable ethos and the nature-based tenants of Aveda. Aveda's environmentally conscious, naturally derived products infuse all of Tangerine's salon services. Seven tiers of hairstylists—ranging from Protégé I to Master III—handle the hairstyling duties by snipping, highlighting, and conditioning locks. At the Coppell and Cedar Hill locations, the staff dedicates space to an array of spa services, including massages, facial treatments, mani-pedis, and back facials that help eliminate crow's feet on people with eyes in the back of their heads.
It’s tempting to say that Beauty Couture Studio Salon’s owner, Amy Ward, is a one-woman show. That wouldn’t do justice to the women she beautifies day in and day out, though. She takes care of her clients’ every need in her private studio, from pouring them a cold beverage to delicately affixing hair or NovaLash extensions. She rouges cheeks and coats nails with long-lasting layers of Gelish polish, sometimes working in glitter or unique floral shapes, animal prints, or tiny portraits of the client’s 10 favorite presidents. She also, of course, performs the traditional tasks of a salon artist, trimming, conditioning, and highlighting hair.
The initials in AIB Salon stand for "art of Indian beauty," and traditional South Asian beauty techniques are indeed its focus. Stylists can deftly use modern techniques such as Japanese hair-straightening or permanent eyelash extensions, but the team specializes in the ancient art of threading—manipulating 100% cotton threads to remove unwanted facial hair with more speed and precision than waxing, shaving, or tweezing. It's also gentle, since the thread lassoes each hair without causing discomfort to the surrounding skin.
Newly de-fuzzed faces can celebrate with facial treatments that incorporate herbs and even gold. Indeed, a taste for glamour permeates AIB Salon: makeup artists revel in creating jaw-dropping wedding looks and, especially, henna designs almost too elaborate to be believed.
The aestheticians at Skin Wellness Weight Loss and Spa improve skin tone and texture with an array of PCA Skin products. The scientifically designed line of creams, lotions, tinctures, and wizard potions tackle nearly any skin issue such as fine lines and acne, and also cater to more-complex skincare needs. For those undergoing chemotherapy, they offer specifically designed treatments. Patrons also can opt for mani-pedis, waxing sessions, eyelash extensions, or soothing massages.
