At Shelly's Advanced Skin Care, owner Shelly Pagnota and her team of trained and licensed aestheticians take a clinical approach to pampering their clients. This is most evident in their slate of rejuvenating facials. Aestheticians conduct nearly 15 types of facials, such as the age defense facial and the vitamin C peel and firm facial, which uses a combination of vitamins and glycolic acid to give the face a younger, firmer look. The staff adds on a chemical peel to every facial if needed, and also offers microdermabrasions and massage services.
Salon co-owners and husband-and-wife duo Tony and Trini Cao keep their team current with rigorous training on the latest hair-, nail-, and skincare techniques. Says Tony, “Our mission is to be the best hair care salon by having well-educated and well-trained stylists, and to grow as a team. After all, you're wearing my name on your head.” Tony began his career about 30 years ago in New Orleans. During a fateful trip to Dallas for his best friend's wedding in 1997, the stylist felt inspired by the city and decided to stay. Both Tony and Trini specialize in precision haircutting and supplement their crew's artistry with high-quality products, including Shu Uemura Art of Hair and Bumble and bumble. The salon is also certified in the use of the Ouidad line, whose proteins and amino acids provide long-term nourishment for curls, textured strands, or enamored turtledoves posing as feather extensions.
In the midst of oppressive Texas heat, Relache Spa promises a cool, quiet respite. The 25,000-square-foot spa offers relief to weary bodies through massage, to thirsty pores through facials, and to parched nails through mani-pedis. The European-inspired services extend even to expectant mothers and men.
The purposes of Hidden Door Medspa?s services span from relaxation to cosmetic enhancement and improved health. Because of this, the staff includes everyone from licensed massage therapists and aestheticians to certified laser technicians and a medical aesthetician who once put lipstick on a gurney. At the day-spa end of the center, nimble hands brandish Swedish, deep-tissue, or prenatal massage techniques to diffuse bodily tension, and the med-spa area sheds the glow of lasers over unwanted hair and administers cosmetic injections. Hidden Door?s third branch, medical weight loss, operates under a 20-year nursing veteran who counsels clients on nutrition as well as options such as hormone therapy and noninvasive LipoEx cellulite treatments.
No client’s hair desire is too much to ask of Catherine Jones. The stylist at Old World Salons creates classic and out-of-the-box 'dos with precision, dry, and razor cuts. She straightens hair and, at the opposite end of the spectrum, breathes volumes into strands with permanents. Her clients include men, women, children, and children’s favorite stuffed animal.
