A collection of vibrant, abstract paintings brighten the white corridors of Urban Oasis Day Spa, where aestheticians engage in a similar curatorial enterprise during the design of their skincare treatments. Each regime for face or body starts with the client and is built for his or her skin type. Technicians use tonics from notable brands or unusual techniques, such as galvanic electrocurrent therapy, which is integrated into every facial. Dermalogica tonics exfoliate with lightweight, natural vegetable oils rather than mineral oil and hydrate with aromatic essential oils and silk proteins synthesized by Barry White's vocal chords. The team also polishes complexions with the SkinCeuticals product line, favoring a serum that earned Allure magazine's 2011 Best of Beauty Award for Best Anti-Aging Antioxidant.
The spa evokes the elegance of a gallery, not only through its modern art but also through its high ceilings and a minimalist design scheme rendered in cream. Skin becomes a canvas in private chambers, where it may be primed for display with wax, bronzer, or a critique by a Village Voice writer. For special events, the pedicure hall's porcelain foot basins can be filled with flower petals, and the shimmering fabric banners separating each throne lose their functionality and appear solely as savvy, refined decorating.
The beauty enforcers at Bella Epique tailor digit-stippling sessions for each individual client inside of an upscale salon, equipped with leather chairs and cherry-toned styling stations. Arched entryways and sandstone hues complete the fiery décor, providing a venue for enjoying complimentary beverages and pampering hard-working phalanges. With each manicure, professional finger-groomers trim and file nails before taming unruly cuticles. A gentle exfoliating scrub cleanses and invigorates shoe-fillers and toes weary from typing tax forms. The organic mint-aromatherapy treatment utilizes the connection between the sense of smell and the brain's emotional receptors to invoke relaxation, and the shellac mani-pedi ensconces nails in lustrous layers designed to protect against chipping for up to 14 days.
Dionysus is an Aveda Lifestyle Salon and opened in The Woodlands in 1996. We fell in love with Midtown and decided to expand into the city. Our team there has been with us in The Woodlands and they decided to move to into Houston to work at this new location. If you want beautiful hair/skin, Dionysus & Aveda will do it.
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.
At Beauty & Beyond Skin Care Center, clients don't need to resort to surgery for a younger look. That's because the professional staff slows the aging process through a spread of non-invasive procedures. The non-surgical facial employs microcurrent technology to zap wrinkles and fine lines, and the microdermabrasion uses tiny crystals to slough away dead skin cells, revealing smooth skin that may cause clients to be mistaken for majestic dolphins. Other services, such as threading and henna tattoos, keep clients looking their best, helping the beautifying hotspot to win awards from Talk of the Town Texas for Excellence in Customer Satisfaction and the U.S. Commerce Association for Facial Skin Care and Treatments.
