"Technique is everything," says Tricia Hetherington, licensed esthetician and owner of The Pretty Kitty, a chain of full-service waxing boutiques specializing in bare-all Brazilians. Tricia, who?s been profiled in Luxury Las Vegas and several additional press outlets, personally trains each staff member in her proprietary 10- to 15-minute hair-removal method, which employs high-quality soft wax that?s formulated for delicate flesh and minimizes pain. Her estheticians never double dip into the wax pot, reaching for a fresh stick with every application of the warm substance. The Pretty Kitty's menu of services also includes facial and full-body waxing, and though walk-ins are welcome, appointments are recommended.

The Pet's Play Palace offers both short- and long-term respite for cats and dogs in an air-conditioned, indoor facility. During daycare sessions, pets trounce through the backyard, which sports two canine-centric areas and one cat-specific space, overseen by pet-care professionals to ensure that the dogs are playing fair games of poker. Pets can shack up in the hotel for longer stays, wherein dogs are treated to bathroom breaks and up to six exercise sessions per day and felines stretch their wings with up to three hours of cage-free playtime per day. On-site groomers anoint fur coats with scrub downs and trims and also brush teeth and trim dogs' nails.

Houston Wellness Boutique is decorated with numerous butterflies, and there's a reason for that. "When my clients walk in the door, they feel like a caterpillar," says owner Terry Tribble. "When they walk out, I want them to feel like a butterfly." She and her staff achieve this transformation with a selection of slimming body wraps that use a special solution to draw out toxins and help promote circulation. The treatments begin with dry brushing, a relaxing service that exfoliates dead skin cells to help the solution penetrate deeper into the body. Clients can achieve even greater results with an additional infrared-sauna session. Houston Wellness Boutique also specializes in pampering cancer patients by providing permanent makeup services, post-mastectomy products, and fashionable wigs.
