Kaaya Salon and Spa's experienced staff primps paws and pampers faces with relaxing manicures, pedicures, and facials. First, nail stylists trim talons, clip cuticles, and buff away all chalkboard-scratching memories. After guests with newly cleaned claws choose their favorite shade of OPI nail polish, technicians varnish fingers and toes with the selected shimmering shade. Next, spa specialists daub visages with pore-cleansing facials, relieving human emoticons of dead skin, excess oils, and downturned parentheses. While the staff thoroughly mollycoddles clients, the subtle, earth-tone décor sparkles in the reflection of sprawling, shiny mirrors.
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 the past 15 years, the beauty experts at Sheila's Hair Design have enhanced bodies with cuts and colors, the ancient art of threading, and henna tattoos that are ideal for weddings or turning a row of freckles into Pac-Man fodder. A boutique area showcases clothing and jewelry from Pakistan and India, including traditional pieces from Rajasthan.
Since opening its first eyebrow-centered salon within a Walmart in Indianapolis, Seva has expanded its locations and services. The eyebrow specialists remain true to their roots by creating flattering arches with threading and waxing techniques. Additionally, they tackle signs of aging and acne with skin-specific facials.
Champa's Creations Day Spa combines the relaxing arts of hair-, nail-, and skincare under one roof. In addition to shearing overgrown strands, stylists boost shine with house-made conditioning treatments customized to individual hair type, add luminous full or partial highlights, and iron out curly tops with thermal reconditioning treatments. The salon’s nail technicians stay equally busy, primping fingers and toes before decorating cuticles with classic paint jobs, artificial nails, or shellac gel that lasts up to two weeks without chipping or turning hands invisible. Meanwhile, aestheticians man private rooms, where they administer facials that target acne hotspots or collagen treatments designed to spur cellular regeneration. Aside from showcasing outer beauty, the crew also coaxes out internal relaxation with soothing Swedish and aromatherapy massages and indulgent body wraps.
The aesthetician at Naked Skincare & Waxing works hard performing all facials, chemical peels, and hair-removal treatments, while striving for a high level of customer satisfaction. Separate gentleman services appease the Y-chromosome and reflexology treatments soothe feet and alleviate pain caused by tap-dancing barefoot on hot pavement
