It’s with a classic approach that stylist Mindy Kastendieck updates tresses, making sure that each look melds with clients’ facial features, hair texture, and personality. This attention to detail comes from 15 years of experience, during which she picked up an expertise in color correction and special-occasion updos. But while her beauty tenure has gifted Mindy with a deft hand, it’s through continued education that she keeps abreast of the latest trends.
Owner Janice Reyes and her stylists sculpt hair inside a historic brick building adorned with a mural of pink and periwinkle roses. In addition to cuts, color, and straightening treatments, stylists rearrange hair in sophisticated updos using products by Redken and Pureology. Mani-pedis keep nails looking neat, and massages with face cleansing help keep skin aglow with health. When they aren't cosseting clients, stylists keep the Alante boutique stocked with fun clothing for women of all ages and any number of heads.
Apothecaries predate modern chemistry and pharmacology by hundreds of years, tracing their tradition of fashioning medicinal compounds from natural ingredients to Baghdad in the 8th century and Chaucer's Canterbury Tales. These skilled practitioners developed proven techniques to heal weary patients with organic balms and soothe hoards of barbarian Gauls with aromatic oils. Located near Lake Ray Hubbard, Affinity Salon & Spa mines these ancient techniques in its own apothecary, custom-making products and reinforcing their mission to guarantee each client "quality services with a personal touch." Winners of a 2010 Talk of the Town award, the staffers dote on every guest with spa and salon services that integrate oils, herbs, and teas to foster a relaxing, organic experience.
Jan Blaha and her expert staff at Rockwall Aesthetic Center nudge discolored complexions toward an even, healthy tone with the help of laser technology. Visits begin with a consultation, in which patients learn about the center's Intense Pulsed Light treatment and ensure the treatment is right for them. Bright bursts of energy rid skin cells of the sun's signature graffiti, erasing broken blood vessels and uneven pigmentation as well as the redness perpetrated by rosacea and crayons. After about one hour, newly toned patients skip out of the office and then return for additional sessions every three or four weeks as needed.
