Online, people create avatars as graphic representations of how they perceive themselves. But at the real-life Avatar Salon, stylists and aestheticians actually help people realize the looks of their dreams. They do this with an extensive menu of hair, nail, and skincare treatments. In the salon, stylists perform everything from basic cuts to hair-relaxing treatments. Not to be outdone, the spa team specializes in four types of massage and facials, as well as pedicures that carefully remove any calluses or piranhas.
The aestheticians at Artistic Additions specialize in enhancing natural looks with permanent makeup such as lip liner, eyeliner, or scar camouflage. Staff are also adept at attaching eyelash extensions and performing microdermabrasions that work to clear away skin imperfections using small crystals.
At locations in Colleyville and Watauga, Universal Threading Salon & Spa's technicians twist lengths of cotton thread to pull out unwanted facial hair from the root. Threading isn't the only beauty technique borrowed from ancient Eastern traditions: they decorate visitors' hands with the intricate, lacy henna designs known as mehndi. Along with dressing up arms, they relax hands by rendering stress-melting massages or slowly easing your grip off the jackhammer. Microdermabrasion and Dermalogica facials further underscore the spa's dedication to smooth, glowing skin, which can complement the application of lash extensions or permanent makeup.
DuVall’s School of Cosmetology epitomizes hands-on education. Though students do spend time in the classroom, most of their training is spent in the 11,900-square-foot school’s salon and spa, where they perform a roster of services on real people under the guidance of their instructors. Cosmetology students shampoo and cut hair, add length with extensions, and add hue with highlights. Students partake of elite training from instructors versed in the Sassoon method, a system honed by Vidal Sassoon himself during his more than 50 years as a top stylist. Meanwhile, aspiring aestheticians perform facials with products crafted by Dermalogica, a skincare brand that is produced without such common skin irritants as artificial colors, fragrances, and puns. Those outside of the training program can also take advantage of the school's pedigree by basking in carefully mastered beauty services performed by students at a fraction of standard salon prices.
