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.

When Younes Ounzar moved from New York to Dallas, he brought coloring expertise that earned him—and only five other salons across the nation—a spot on Colin Cowie Weddings the Hair Hit List. Following the lead of Ounzar, stylists at Capelli Salon Dallas enhance manes with an array of services and their own line of nourishing products. Coifs emerge with vibrant new tones after ammonia-free coloring treatments, or sport smooth, sleek tresses after Japanese thermal treatments. Real human-hair extensions add dramatic length or empathy for a sister who lives in a locked tower. Full-length mirrors and red cube-shaped chairs imbue the salon with a contemporary, European vibe that is elevated with modernistic white chandeliers.
Stylists at Aria Salon Dallas don’t force all their clients to wear the same hairstyle, and it only follows that they shouldn’t make all their clients adhere to the same schedule. All day, the hardworking hairstylists use their keen aesthetic eyes to forge one-of-a-kind haircuts and hair-texturizing and coloring services until 7 p.m. And if a client can’t make it before the salon closes up shop? The accommodating staff can schedule later appointments by request. That way, clients can receive everything from a Brazilian blowout to a simple shampoo and style on their own timetable.
