The padded arena inside Great Play of Cypress is a place of transformation. Through interactive activities, kids ages 6 months to 12 years old build new motor skills and develop full ranges of movement. After the Introductory Motor Skills Program, Great Play's instructors help kids learn coordination and agility, which will come into play during sports. Great Play also hosts Zumba for Kids, Birthday Parties, and a Parents' Night Out. For the latter, Great Play's kids experts supervise and occupy children while moms and dads go out on dates or stay at home and play with Legos.
Black, leather seating, elegantly spare walls, and copious light reflecting off the hardwood floors sets the tranquil setting of Singhaar, a salon, spa, and Indian apparel boutique. After aestheticians refresh complexions with facials inside private treatment rooms, and stylists sculpt and color coifs, guests can top off new looks by harvesting pieces from the boutique's multicolored racks. Vivid fuschias, greens, and yellows swim across dresses and tunics in the form of paisley, beaded embellishments, and even zebra print—though no zebras or paisley monsters were harmed in the clothes' creation.
iBrow & Hair Studio's aestheticians spruce up their clients' appearances with treatments that run the gamut from basic haircuts to deep-hydrating facials. Among these are high-tech treatments such as the ultrasonic facial, which uses ultrasonic frequencies to help stimulate blood circulation and communicate with the tiny aliens that live on the surface of our skin. The staff can also mix and match these treatments into a number of different packages, including bridal services.
The 11 savvy stylists at Salon Gity style, strengthen, and straighten locks with Paul Mitchell and Coppola products. Tress technicians spend about 45 minutes on each haircut, snipping head nests to client specifications and yielding styles more flattering than written compliments from Oprah. During keratin blowouts, high-end Coppola products seal strands with a protein-rich complex that protects follicle foundations from pollution and reduces frizz. Stylists spend two to three hours administering each root-bolstering treatment, after which hair hangs straighter, resists breaking, and deflects malignant lasers fired from outer space. Salon Gity cultivates an online gallery of its best styling work, which earned the store the title of Best Houston Beauty Store in 2005 on Citysearch.
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.
