For more than 20 years, AIIC-certified master technician Kim Morrow has worked to beautify her clients using her knowledge and experience in permanent-makeup and eyelash-extension application. At The Studio at Rockwall Spa, she helms a team of beauty professionals that enhances features with permanent makeup and elongates lashes with extensions that add thickness without the need for mascara or chunky peanut butter. Waxing treatments remove unwanted hair, clearing the way for a custom airbrush tan.
Tan About Town Texas’s airbrush artists add dazzle to dermises with custom spray tans. Carting their mobile booths and tanning equipment to patrons, the team enriches complexions with DHA. This safe, sugar-based ingredient brings skin to a sultry glow without incurring the burns that immediately follow lying in the sun or heckling a professional comedian. To augment the tans, the team supplies Bronzed Envy tanning products that protect and enrich tans with coffee extracts, vitamins, and botanicals.
Since Luz B graduated from the International Beauty College in 1988, she has lost no time studying the art and practice of beauty. After working in spas and parlors in and around Dallas for years, she eventually decided to take the plunge and open Luz B Day Spa to pamper guests her way. Her portfolio includes seven kinds of facials, some tailored to certain skin types, others designed for skin of a certain age. Clients can relax under masks while Luz takes care of cuticles and polishes nail with dollops of smooth color. She even maintains her own custom line of skincare products, including a vitamin C cream, a glycolic cleanser, and a special clay mask to wear when you don’t feel like putting on your face.
Pedestrians navigating the historical charm of McKinney's downtown square step into Pavitra Organic Day Spa and find themselves in another type of nostalgic haven—one that honors a time when skincare was all-natural. The eco-friendly spa's name originates from the Sanskrit word meaning "pure" and is honored in the spa's use of botanically based and organic products from brands such as Juice Beauty and Farmaesthetics. Services such as the signature organic facial employ only eco-friendly supplies, and staffers enhance massages with sea salt from WoodSprite's Muscle Mender line. Experts also remove hair from face and body using an all-natural blend of beeswax and essential oils.
The spa's waiting area amplifies its relaxing ambiance with a soft, ecru-colored sofa and decorations inspired by nature, including sand, stones, tree branches, and a cross-section of rainbow preserved in a glass jar. The crew further demonstrates its commitment to caring for the world by sponsoring community events.
The tanning specialists at The Bronze Life manually mix organic, 100% vegan spray-tanning solutions to allow for unparalleled shade customization. Right off the bat, a consultation reveals your personal tanning goals before a streak-free spray tan adds a natural-looking hue to your skin. The tech can also throw in additives that aim to tighten the skin, obscure other signs of aging, or cause rainwater to bead up on your skin. In addition to in-studio sessions, The Bronze Life's mobile airbrush setup can color in clients at their home or office.
Mirages are famed tricksters of the desert, illusions generated by heat waves and tired minds that reportedly depict comfort, safety, and luxury. Rowlett's Mirage Tanning Spa also summons such visions, though its many amenities are quite solid. The spa's staff foregoes the basic 20-minute tanning beds in favor of more opulent models, such as the standup booths or VIP and Platinum beds. The staff uses its bottled light in other ways as well—whitening teeth and smoothing skin to name a few. Staffers can also cut out the need for UV radiation altogether with Mystic spray-tan booths, darkening skin with a concoction of melanin-encouraging components. Mirage even offers automated massages, relaxing muscles with HydroMassage beds that use pressurized water to emulate the feeling of futuristic massage robots at work.
