Mandy Mizzell has been a licensed stylist in the Dallas area for six years and currently works out of the upscale Firewheel Salons space. Inside her private treatment suite, she nimbly uses scissors to create one-of-a-kind looks that fit each client's aesthetic tastes and personality. In addition to haircuts and color treatments, Mandy specializes in hair extensions that can help people get the look of added length without having to sew scarves into their hair.
How does one start a skincare business with no equipment, products, or money? Kim Evans found herself in that predicament when she started her business immediately after passing the state boards. With nothing but faith and a strong work ethic, she began tending to her clients' skin needs inside a rented room of a small spa. She worked 80 hours per week and became a licensed massage therapist to expand her business into what it is today: a wellness spa that enhances the beauty and health of skin and body through spa services and massage. Inside 2Gorjis Integrated Health & Wellness, three private treatment rooms house clients as two skin therapists cleanse surfaces during custom facials, or wrap bodies in aromatherapy herbal linens. The staff members bolster natural features with eyelash extensions, meticulous body waxing, and makeup artistry that includes exclamation points drawn next to eyebrows.
Barbie's signature long locks were never safe around Samantha Serie who knew at a very young age that she was destined to be a hairstylist. For the past 25 years, Samantha has been realizing that destiny, helping clients achieve their desired hairdo from classic cuts to fashion-forward trends.
Inside her private suite at the contemporary Firewheel Salons in the Firewheel Town Center Mall, Samantha starts each visit with a thorough consultation, listening to clients’ concerns and goals but also their fears about monsters that will crimp their hair while they sleep. Samantha feels as a stylist that it is her job to help clients "break the…molds that become their hair." She does this with color corrections, barber-style clipper cuts, and foil highlights. She also regularly attends continuing education courses to keep her skills fresh and is happy to recommend other technicians if she cannot personally perform a specific treatment requested.
Sure, a massage can be great for simple relaxation. But at You-Nique Spa, therapist Cheetah De La Corona doesn't see why her treatments can't do more than that. For example, her TLC massages are designed to kickstart lymphatic drainage and desensitize touch receptors, which can ease discomfort for people suffering from arthritis or cerebral palsy. The Look at You massage supports weight-loss plans by incorporating techniques that can help break up deposits of fat cells. Some treatments include the opportunity to mix your own essential oil, as well as extras such as reflexology, foot soaks, and, if you have a head, scalp massage.
Characterized by soft whites and pops of earthy greens and browns, Bella Vi Skin & Laser Center's décor feels at once clean and natural. The aestheticians enhance this feeling, filling the air with the aroma of eucalyptus leaves, the harmonious sounds of zen music, and the ambient splashing of their little waterfall, which they presumably shrunk with the same technology as they use to diminish pore size. Once the atmosphere sets clients at ease, the aestheticians beautify and restore bodies with a range of services, such as laser procedures to rid skin of wrinkles and hair, threading and waxing treatments, and classic facials.
