Tan Evolution doesn't mess around with equipment that isn't top-notch. For example, the establishment’s Ergoline and Versa Spa tanning beds and booths possess many features that help make bronzed bodies a reality: high-pressured lamps, body-contoured acrylic, and 500-watt facial and shoulder tanners. But the Smart Tan-certified staff is also on hand to help clients obtain a beautiful full-body tan. They’ll customize a plan for each customer to make sure the tan suits their body. Tanning is the marquee service here, but Tan Evolution offers other services, such as eyebrow and facial threading, and eyelash extensions.
The MVP haircut is reserved for guys who want the brawn of a chiseled cut with the extreme adrenaline rush of a pleasant pampering. Following careful instructions or expert intuition, stylists can clean up the edges without sacrificing any degree of edginess. A thorough shampoo and scalp massage ensures an itch-free walk off, while a neck and shoulder massage with steamed towel leaves cleaned-up batters with the zonal focus to connect on any upcoming office pitch.
Before each initial treatment at Massage Heights, an experienced, licensed massage therapist assesses a client’s physical condition and inquires about his or her individual back bothers and sore spots, making the ensuing knead comfortably customized. Hourlong massage options include the Swedish massage, which uses calming strokes to erase tension and put an alarm clock to the ear of oversleeping lymphatic systems, and sports massage, which is designed to enhance endurance and reduce recovery time. Weed out deep-seated soreness with a deep-tissue massage, or experience relaxation for two with a pregnancy massage. All of Massage Heights’ kneads are performed on a cushy, heated table to loosen limbs and ramp up relaxation, and the linens used are super soft, like babies’ kneepits. The added hot towel/cold stone face massage uses aromatherapy and soothing stones to relieve sinus congestion, and the peppermint foot scrub relieves aching leg anchors with a tingly, festive scent.
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, Kérastase 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.
