Since its first dollop of polish landed on a nail bed in 1994, Assured Image Salon II Hair and Nail Salon has changed locations, hired new stylists, and cycled through a variety of trends. But team members' commitment to beauty, technical skill, and pristine cleanliness has never wavered. Hardwood floors, unadorned white walls, and an invisible pet elephant?there's room for him in the 3,500 square-foot facility?form a clean, soothing backdrop for services. Treatments range from haircuts and mani-pedis to facials, waxing, and makeup artistry.

A 2012 pick for The Knot’s Best of Weddings, Fashion Face beautifies brides, bridesmaids, or wedding crashers for their big day with hairstyling and professional makeup services that include 16-hour foundations and tattoo cover-ups. Branching out beyond weddings, the salon also enhances everyday beauty with cuts and colors from experienced stylists and deep-cleansing facials that exfoliate and moisturize the skin. Custom airbrush tanning provides a natural-looking bronze without harsh chemicals or exposure to UV rays. Technicians apply the botanical solution by hand, adding darker hues to specific areas to create the look of a more toned physique.
Zebra-print chairs offset classic Doric columns topped with lights at Village La Salon, adding a fun element of funk to an upscale salon atmosphere. Inside, professional stylists shape hair into customized styles with a variety of services for men and women, which range from haircuts and highlights to permanent relaxers and conditioning treatments. They also perform a variety of other salon services, including mani-pedis, full-body massages, permanent makeup, and threading and waxing.
My Trendy Place spells out its mission with its name. Patrons peruse fashionably bejeweled bracelets and wallets, on-trend handbags, and colorful dresses that, like the mailing addresses of geese, change with the seasons. Sundry cosmetics beautify lips and lashes, and a selection of lace wigs helps elongate locks.
Through a commitment to continuous education, the stylists at Clique Salon have learned that hair fashion is a limitless art. Regional and national seminars furnish their infinite utility belts with evolving techniques, which they then apply to cuts, color treatments, and other services at their Houston studio. However, they do preserve one constant: a commitment to environmental health. Their stations remain free of aerosol and are stocked with natural haircare products, including formulas from Aveda, Modern Elixirs, and Tea Tree. Positioned within these fresh surroundings, the hair gurus begin each appointment with a consultation, during which clients sip on wine or another beverage as they describe what direction they want their locks to take. As the stylists cut, dye, and condition strands, they also dispense aftercare recommendations, enabling patrons to preserve their new color without hiring an art-restoration specialist each week.
