True to its name, My Choice Spa and Wellness Lounge puts the client first. A team of aestheticians and massage therapists tailor every treatment to individual needs, customizing facials based on skin assessments, targeting specific aches with deep-tissue massages, and personalizing hand masks during manicures. Specialized nail services and microdermabrasions cater to male clients, and a med-spa menu features laser hair removal and cosmetic injections.
The recipe for the runway-ready styles that emerge within Eleven 11 Salon 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.
Sol has restless feet. For the past 20 years, Sol has culled the latest trends from around to world—from Tel-Aviv to Italy to London—keeping active Dallas urbanites at the forefront of incessantly rotating hair fashions. His team of deft stylists undergoes rigorous and ongoing training to ensure that not only their scissors but their savvy stays ultra-sharp. In addition to slathering strands with INOA hair color by L'Oreal, Sol's team sculpts manes with products by Kérastase. They can also lengthen coiffures with durable human-hair extensions or smooth out tendrils with Brazilian and Japanese straightening treatments.

In the salon, stylists create new looks with everything from cuts and conditioning to keratin straightening treatments, extensions, and wig customization. Here, the stylists specialize in services for hair of all ethnicities, including natural styles.

Further in, private treatment rooms in earthen hues host nine massage options that include aromatherapy and prenatal techniques.
