Amy, the licensed aesthetician behind The Perfect Lash, is a perfectionist by nature. She applies her attention to detail to her craft, meticulously enhancing clients' natural beauty with eyelash extensions tailored to the length and curl of their natural eyelashes and to the shape of their eyes and brows. Treatments range from a full set of Subtle Impact extensions, which cover 30% of natural eyelashes, to a Glam set of Maximum Impact extensions, which create a look similar to three or more coats of mascara. Amy maintains high standards of hygiene during every session.
Kyle Brandt and his team of fellow trainers?who include his wife Sarah?are, of course, fit. But they don't believe in exercising for exercise's sake. Instead, at Brandt Fitness & Self Defense, they offer what they call "functional fitness for life." This belief, which also serves as the company's motto, manifests in two ways. First, it means that by focusing on martial arts, Kyle and his team can coach students of all skill levels?first-time exercisers, four-year-old martial arts novices, professional athletes?to defend themselves from danger. The second function they ascribe to fitness? Community. They believe working out should be fun and social. Fridays' happy hour workouts encourage as much gum-flapping as they do deadifting. And like the martial arts classes, Brandt's CrossFit sessions welcome a diverse array of attendees. The gym even hosts holiday parties, which are very popular, although their papier mache pi?ata full of kettlebells never quite got off the ground.
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.
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.
