The experienced stylists at exotic hair bar offer complimentary consultations and a wide variety of hair and beauty services to their clients. They cut and style hair for women and men, creating traditional or modern looks. They add bursts of color with partial or full highlights and offer texturing and straightening services. They also shape eyebrows, treat dry scalps or damaged hair, and lengthen hair with hair extensions.
To get an idea of the kinds of services offered at Carrollton Square Salon & Spa, you need only look up. In one of the treatment rooms, a tent hovers over the massage bed, ready to catch clouds of toxin-dispersing steam. In another room, the ceiling’s wooden bars allow trained ashiatsu practitioners to buoy and balance themselves while massaging clients' backs with their feet. The only thing you'll find on the ceiling of the relaxation room is soft, recessed lighting and the trapped cartoon-bubble sighs of stress relief left behind by previous guests.
The salon and spa harnesses the historic charm of downtown Carrollton and is filled with friendly, down-to-earth staffers. This combination won over readers of the Carrollton Leader, who voted it the Best Spa and Best Massage in 2012.
Radiant Skin Care Spa lives up to its name, brightening complexions with spa services powered by Dermalogica, Glytone, and Bare Minerals products. Aestheticians enhance the smoothing power of facials by whisking away dead skin cells with crystal microdermabrasion sessions and chemical peels. They also nix errant fuzz with hair removal treatments that use warm wax, electrolysis, or IPL lasers with built-in cooling devices. Aromatherapy and hot stone massages slowly release tension in the back and limbs, leaving clients relaxed and stress-free. Nails aren’t neglected, either; technicians coat digits with colorful CND shellacs that can withstand cracks caused by car door handles and house keys set to "attack mode".
After 18 years spent helping her clients get the hairstyles of their dreams, Kara Evans was finally able to realize her own lifelong dream of opening her own salon. Since March of 2012, she’s helmed the wheel of Bella Tula Salon, where her scissoring and hair coloring skills are complemented by other aesthetic services such as special occasion makeup. Hair remains her greatest passion, however, so she pulls products by Kuene and Pureology to aid her as she tends to the tresses of both men and women. Beyond custom cuts, her specialties include corrective color and thermal straightening, as well as children’s mohawks, which give kids the extra inches they need to finally ride roller coaters by themselves.
Though the talented stylists at New Image Beauty Salon spend much of their time renovating outmoded coiffures and evicting unwelcome strands, they also focus their beauty-boosting expertise on refreshing complexions with a variety of skin treatments. The beauticians keep their scissors, flat irons, and waxing wands in tow six days a week, easily scheduling appointments for regular upkeep or emergency waxing sessions when bear costumes refuse to come off. New Image’s glycolic facials and peels launch faces toward epidermal excellence, and their threading services reshape bushy brows into slim eye accents.
The grooming staff at Pearl Beauty Salon plucks follicles from myriad facial and bodily areas through gentle threading or warm waxing treatments. Fuzz hunters employ wax to smooth out skinscapes and threading experts drag a twisted-cotton thread over hirsute facial areas including the upper lip or eyebrows. Taut fibers trap hair and lift it out of the follicle in a process that can be less painful than other hair removal options and also exfoliates the skin. Like attendance in a rigorous exercise class, threading can lead to fewer and thinner hairs returning after successive sessions. Patrons can mix and match threading areas to deforest growth all over the body or focus on the same zone as a cover story for invisible tattoos.
