A chandelier decked out with glass teardrops hangs over slate floors and eclectic decorations inside Sole'renity's historic building, which dates back more than a century. Zebra-striped Victorian-style chairs stand in the waiting area, where the splash of cascading water sounds out from small stone fountains. At nail stations farther inside, techs polish nails and provide paraffin-wax soaks for the toes of clients seated in damask chairs. Massages soothe muscles with hot stones and essential oils, and facials refresh visages by clearing acne, renewing aging skin, and removing expressions stuck on the face after last night's nightmares.
Like any redhead, Jennifer Davis had intimate knowledge of the painful burns that would result when she tried to imbue her fair complexion with a sultry summer glow. Determined to help her fellow Texans achieve a sun-kissed hue without the damaging effects of tanning, Jennifer opened a mobile airbrush-tanning business that has since expanded to multiple salon hubs situated throughout the Dallas metro area.
Using a paraben-free, DHA solution, the salon?s certified airbrush technicians completely envelop frames in a shade tailored to skin tones, leaving a streak-free color that lets patrons avoid the attentions of lovelorn zebras. The tanning solution is applied and dry within 30 minutes, both illuminating bodily hues and covering skin imperfections such as blemishes, cellulite, and stretch marks during its two-week tenure on the skin. The salon also stocks a supply of Norvell products and airbrushing machines, allowing guests to maintain golden skin at home without replacing showerheads with arcade token machines.

Sunlight glances off the angular glass façade of the med spa. Inside the office, a sleek, professional feel belies the warm reception that visitors receive from clinic manager Katrina Caillet and her well-trained staff. Their caring and supportive attitude lends extra warmth to the therapeutic beams of lasers trained to flicker in rhythm with "Kumbaya." The staff also primps skin with clinical-grade products from brands such as JanMarini, SkinMedica, and SkinCeuticals.
Named Best Massage Center/Spa by the Denton Record Chronicle in 2009, Essentials Day Spa employs skilled aestheticians and high-end products to refine appearances and bring out each client's latent beauty.
