When she's not traveling to runways and bridal events across the country, Rosalba clips and colors strands in the comfort of her own business, Georgette's Beauty Salon. Working with a team of six experienced stylists, she touches up ladies' looks with everything from Brazilian blowouts to hair extensions that use only human hair. Ombré highlight options include the molten ombré, which creates an eye-catching beach-blond look, saving clients the trouble of stealing someone else's hair while they nap.

Jerry Stubbs was born to sell. He started out with bread, then moved on to lawnmowers, before settling on motorcycles. His love of bikes eventually culminated in Stubbs Harley-Davidson, a venture that began in 1965 and is now the oldest dealer in the Houston area. Jerry has since passed on, but the Stubbs sales staff honors his credo of taking care of the customer. They pride themselves on making sure no one waits more than 20 seconds before being greeted by a sales member.
Overseeing the chromed-out cache of new and used Harley-Davidsons, general manager Colin Lee often helps match first-time riders with their ideal bike. Additionally, the shop’s service department assists in identifying torque, power, and riding problems, while also souping up bikes with customized add-ons such as audio systems, paint jobs, and Honus Wagner rookie cards to shove in the spokes.
The computer-driven wash tunnel at Carisma Wash scours vehicles in four minutes or fewer, but that doesn't mean cutting corners. In fact, during the brief cycles, a parade of mild, wet, and grease-cutting soaps coat the body, tires, and windows of cars four times or as many as it takes to remove hitchhikers from the roof rack. Wheels covered with soft cloth gently scrub grime while passengers stay comfortably seated inside.
Washes range from the basic Touch It Up to The Ultimate, which encompasses everything from UV protectant to an undercarriage scrub. After an air dry, customers emerge and grab self-service vacuums to free interiors of crumbs and nephews who fell between the seats. Employees stand by their handiwork, granting patrons a free wash if they're not satisfied after their first spin.
