From hot stone European facials to permanent makeup, Karizma Professional Beauty Services brings out the beauty in each client. Stylists create new looks with haircuts, coloring, and keratin treatments or apply professional makeup to help prepare for a wedding-license notarization. Aestheticians also highlight facial features with enhancements such as lash extensions by Lash Essence and cosmetic teeth whitening.
At Elegantly Smooth, licensed aesthetician, Tori Vanier, voluminizes lashes with extensions that eliminate the need for mascara and last up to 25 days. To compliment a luxurious set of peeper curtains, she also performs skin-smoothing waxing services.
Affordable Laser & MedSpa's technicians usher in the next generation of aesthetic trends by surfing the crest of beauty technology. At two locations, they draw upon an arsenal of lasers, SkinCeuticals serums, and beauty injectables to help reverse time's effects on the face and to carve bodies into more slender, smoother versions of themselves. Their Candela laser systems, for example, remove unwanted hair from all skin types by penetrating the epidermal surface without damage and heating up the hair root. And that targeted efficiency continues throughout their other treatments, such as LipoDissolve, which uses microinjections to break down localized fat deposits, and microdermabrasion, in which a diamond-tipped wand exfoliates the very outer layer of skin cells to leave faces smoother and more radiant than Don Juan wearing a fluorescent leisure suit.
Luxe Salon & Spa restores a healthy, relaxed glow to skin, nails, and hair. Custom facial treatments address each client’s specific skin tone and imbalances, and manicures polish nails after preventing overgrown cuticles by lining the lower base of the nail with mini sandbags. A team of talented stylists shapes hair and paints new ‘dos with balayage-style highlights, which grow out to complement a head’s natural shade. The spa’s signature services include massages and body wraps, which relax the body more than submerging oneself in a dunk tank full of warm milk.
Colorlocks' expert hair strengtheners and shaders build body in flat manes with the Awapuhi hair treatment, named Best Wave Enhancer in Allure magazine's 2010 Best of Beauty awards. A stylist will de-kink coifs, turning frizzy nests into waves silky and smooth enough to inspire a jealous slam ballad by Michael Bolton. Paul Mitchell's Awapuhi products wrangle wild ginger to daintily deck strands with greater volume and well-defined waves. Though not included in this Groupon, Awapuhi shampoos and rinses are available for at-home use, so manes can retain their beachy billows without sleeping in conch-shell curlers.
Clusters of softly lit spotlights beam over the comfortable, armchair-style styling chairs at Brazil In Drops Salon & Spa, located in the League City surrounding area. Amid the flattering lighting, hairstylists who specialize in Brazilian keratin treatments thwart frizz and tame unwanted curls or revamp styles with expert cut and color treatments, fortified by Pureology products.
Aestheticians man private spa rooms, where they tend to skin with rejuvenating facials, ultrasonic contouring face-lifts, and bikini waxes that use organic wax. They also call attention to clients' best features with airbrush makeup, lash extensions, and huge cardboard arrows.
