The beauty professionals at Perfect Brows Salon make their clients look good with a thread string—and it doesn’t involve sewing. They use a twisted cotton thread to loop around strands of hair and pluck them from their root. They preform threading sessions on the face to remove hair from the upper lips, full face, and eyebrows.
Style is everywhere inside Salon Purple. It's here that Salon Purple's staff creates their own works of art, cutting and coloring hairstyles that would make Mr. Clean shed a bleach-scented tear. Their hands and scissors are guided by ongoing education classes and an advanced color-training program, which all stylists complete. The experts consult closely with clients to design the perfect look, and they do whatever they can to make visits enjoyable. That might mean pouring a cup of Starbucks Coffee or putting on some music.
The sum of all these parts makes Salon Purple a premier destination for stylish haircuts, colors, and nail services. At salon chairs, stylists run through the complete lineup of Pravana Professional Services, including Keratin Fusion Texture Control Treatments and ChromaSilk Hair Color. As a Pravana Elite Salon, Salon Purple relies on professional products straight from Pravana's signature line, including sulfate-free shampoos and conditioners made with natural botanicals.
The staff at Darque Tan learned the science of tanning through Smart Tan certification, which they rely on to design efficient, safe regimes for each client's skin type. Five levels of PCTan beds and booths can bronze skin with as few as 12 minutes of UV exposure while enveloping skin in cooling mist. Automated airbrush tanning in VersaSpa or Mystic Tan booths create even, natural-looking color that masks scars and stretch marks. Darque Tan's pursuit of convenience is further exemplified with business hours that span seven days a week, a minimum of 20 beds per location, and rec rooms where kids can read and watch TV. A crew of professional cleaners details each of the facilities according to a rigorous 50-point inspection and tips gleaned from reading Mr. Clean's LiveJournal.

Knockouts Haircuts for Men amps up the classic barbershop experience with a lavish, sports-themed approach to men's styling that has been featured on Today and CNBC's The Big Idea with Donny Deutsch. At a still-growing number of locations throughout the country, the company's all-female staff of stylists quarterbacks a full playbook of services ranging from bare-essential to spa-worthy. First and foremost, they clip shaggy locks, but they also administer facials, manicures, massages, and waxes. Complimentary beverages are included with every visit, giving patrons something to sip on while watching a sports game on TV or contemplating how they would fend off a lion using just a comb.
Lux Nail Spa first opened the doors of its Keller studio eight years ago, but it wasn't long before the family-owned business found itself in enough demand to open a second location in Fort Worth. Between the two studios, they offer extensive manicuring and pedicuring services, body waxing, and, most recently, eyelash extensions. But their success is built upon much more than just a service menu––the staff genuinely enjoys meeting, talking, and swapping chili recipes with new people, and pampers clients with little extras including complimentary water, soda, or wine.
