The comforts of home. The luxury of a spa. The beauty specialists at Mikal Houston Mobile Spa combine the best elements of both, bringing pampering services to clients’ homes or offices. Individuals and groups relax as technicians add glamor to nails with manicures, ease aches during massages, and scrub away milk mustaches with cleansing facials. The aestheticians also specialize in unique treatments for large groups, ranging from wrinkle-erasing Botox to henna tattoos that pattern skin with temporary designs.
What started as a beauty shop operating out of Aisha Khalid's home has now, 20 years later, blossomed into 10 full-service, women-only salons. The aestheticians at Aisha's Salon & Spa were some of the first to bring threading to the faces of Houston ladies, whisking away unruly brows, chin fuzz, and emperor-tamarin mustaches with a thin cotton filament. For body depilation, they turn to traditional waxing, and body polishes and facials leave skin rejuvenated and smooth. Stylists trim, straighten, and color tresses, and makeup artists apply finishing touches with traditional or airbrush products.

Massage Therapy’s cream-colored walls ease clients into a state of introspective calm. But relaxation isn’t the only goal of this place of healing.

Spend some quality time not talking to your sweetie with the Be My Valentine special, which includes a couple's massage, bottle of wine, and complimentary rose ($199) in Beau Visage's handsome and spacious couple's massage room. Facial fans can try out a Fountain of Youth hydrating facial ($125) or an Under the Sea Facial ($125) with seaweed, cultivated from France's Bethany Coast, that contains 1,000 times more vitamins and minerals than anything grown in soil. Those looking to infiltrate high school to write the exposé that will seal their journalistic futures can peel away layers of dead face skin with a glycolic peel ($50) or a medical-grade peel ($120–$160). If you're more in the mood for a massage, a 90-minute European hot-stone therapy session ($120) will increase your relaxation and improve your blood flow with the penetrating heat of smooth basalt rocks. You can also cocoon yourself with a Slender Quest Body Wrap ($95) and emerge a firm, toned, sexy butterfly. Dudes, meanwhile, can enjoy being King for a Day (one of the Valentine's Day specials) with a gentlemen's facial and a sandalwood aromatherapy massage ($129). Beau Visage also offers airbrush tanning, microdermabrasion, men's body services, photorejuvenation, and more.

The dark, tightly closed floatation chamber cuts out distracting stimulation such as gravity, temperature, sight, and sound for uninterrupted daydreams. These relaxing floating sessions can greatly reduce stress, pain, and tension, as well as regenerate mental and emotional energy.
