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.
The licensed chiropractors and massage therapists of Key Chiropractic Center aim to relieve pain and discomfort caused by sports, whiplash, and pregnancy. To massage sore backs, they turn to modalities such as clinical deep-tissue massage and relaxing Swedish massage. To address more serious spinal injuries, they administer x-rays or exams before choosing a treatment method from their diverse techniques.
The staff at Beauty Intensified Health & Beauty Spa enhance and soothe bodies, but never at the cost of an invasive procedure. Instead, they rely on noninvasive spa services to do the work such as faux liposuction, which uses sound and radio waves instead of scalpels to eradicate fat and tighten skin. Infrared body wraps also work to tone the body; massages and facials focus more on soothing.
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.
For nearly three decades, stylist Sabre Peacock has been infusing strands with vibrancy and style. She turns out these trendy coifs within her namesake salon, where she stocks the shelves with high-quality products. Sabre, who specializes in long hair and highlights, consults with clients before revamping manes with precision cuts, color, and keratin treatments.
Shape Women's Fitness' staff caters to every aspect of women's health, from the physical to the mental. Along with an array of fitness classes––ranging from kickboxing to yoga––they stock their workout floor with Italian–made Technogym equipment. In addition to exercise services, they provide their members with massages, an infrared sauna, and a pool that's heated to ensure comfort and discourage using it to fill water bottles. On-staff certified personal trainers help members of the women-only gym get the most out of their work-outs and guide them through proper nutrition.
