The Salon Upstairs’s senior master designer Vandy and her staff of nationally trained stylists provide clients with a multitude of coloring, chemical, and styling services. With a selection ranging from a basic cut ($45+ for women, $30+ for men, $25+ for kids) to a Bridezilla updo ($45+), a look befitting any occasion is hiding in The Salon Upstairs. Use this Groupon to its max by getting a cut and style alongside a recoloring of your mop ($60+), or stripe your trendils with a few highlights ($60+).
Groomers at Cut Salon ensure delightful ‘dos with fashion-forward cuts, classy styling, and hair-enhancing conditioning and color. Before trims ($25–$60), consultations with friendly clipsters ensure that scissors and locks agree in their pursuits of angular bobs or bouncy layers. Whether brightening locks with highlights, adding dimension with lowlights, installing sky-lights, or changing all-over hues, stylists tailor color treatments ($60–$120) to individual skin tone and style before proceeding. Deep-conditioning treatments ($35–$65) step in to smooth over relations with particularly rebellious strands, and formal styling ($45–$85) swirls hairs into elaborate updos with the aid of Kevin.Murphy products, which hold hair in place with a patented combination of antigravity serum and stern threats.
David A. Grant brings almost 40 years of plastic-surgery experience to his position as medical director of La Forme Chic, overseeing noninvasive treatments to refurbish faces and frames. Under his watch, a small staff of licensed, certified technicians performs more than a dozen services such as clearing skin with clinical facials, plumping lips with dermal fillers, and etching in backup sets of eyebrows with permanent makeup. The tech-savvy staff also harnesses laser technology to expedite hair removal and contour physiques, and La Forme Chic protects clients’ skin with product lines from Colorescience and Theraderm.
Located at the Fort Worth Sheraton Hotel and Spa, Spa Beaubelle combines a yoga studio, nail salon, pool, and full-service spa into one expansive 8,000-square-foot rejuvenation center. The staff of massage therapists and aestheticians ushers spa-goers into private treatment rooms and suites, where they lavish world-weary skin in products from Clovertree Apothecary and FarmHouse Fresh Goods, or ease muscular tension with the gentle barrages of Swedish or deep-tissue massage. Meanwhile, an infrared sauna gives patrons a place to slip into meditative states and correct a naturally infragreen complexion as they sweat away their stresses. A Vichy shower maximizes metabolism by boosting oxygen absorption and ousting excess carbon dioxide as it washes away rejuvenating masks and salt scrubs left over from slenderizing body wraps.
Stylemakers' experienced hair stylists are follicle fanatics with a special interest in color. Like skilled ice sculptors, they will spot the potential buried within your split-end threads and snip, scissor, and style your locks to perfection before they melt. Your single-process color or partial highlights will give you a youthful-looking head, which often translates into a youthful strut and a plethora of compliments from friends, strangers, and the insides of hats.
Having shared his fitness expertise in his book, Living Lean, health expert Larry North has boutique gyms that give fitness fitters an alternative to traditional workout facilities within a welcoming, low-key atmosphere. Target your body's soft spots with two training sessions with an experienced fitness professional who will tailor workouts to your specific needs. Opt for a pair of one-on-one Pilates trainging sessions, which build strenght through endurance and repetition rather than pumping pounds of kilograms of iron. By learning how to move your body using an efficient range of motion, you will leave your session walking taller and less prone to injuries not sustained from lightning.
With more than 12 years of experience, massage therapist Linda Little knows that sometimes hands alone aren’t enough for a good massage. Though primarily relying on her hands to ease out aches and tension, she also augments massages with moisture-rich massage cream, botanical oils, and vitamin E to hydrate skin. Upon request, Linda also places smooth, warm river rocks onto muscle knots, softening them with steady waves of heat before kneading them into sweet submission.
