Bella Body Oils employs a new brand of mixologists. The staff here boasts a stock of more than 2,000 fragrances, which they turn into everything from soy candles to body butters, bubble bath, and massage oil. To accompany their oil business, they have a full slate of nail treatments. The salon’s skilled technicians can free-hand designs with paint, rhinestones, or even turn emailed photos into nail art.
After nails have been trimmed, filed, and buffed, the nail technicians at Pampered Nails really get down to work. They paint nails with artistic looks that include stripes, animal prints, and swirls, and even prep nails for holidays with festive designs including black cats and mummies for Halloween.
Heather Bush knows how to use hair to enhance beauty. At her own suite in Phenix Salons, she keeps hair looking and feeling healthy with haircuts that remove split ends and deep conditioning treatments that leave hair silky and smooth. She may also add dimension with full or partial highlights.
At locations in Colleyville and Watauga, Universal Threading Salon & Spa's technicians twist lengths of cotton thread to pull out unwanted facial hair from the root. Threading isn't the only beauty technique borrowed from ancient Eastern traditions: they decorate visitors' hands with the intricate, lacy henna designs known as mehndi. Along with dressing up arms, they relax hands by rendering stress-melting massages or slowly easing your grip off the jackhammer. Microdermabrasion and Dermalogica facials further underscore the spa's dedication to smooth, glowing skin, which can complement the application of lash extensions or permanent makeup.
Inspired by everything from current fashion trends to fine art, licensed nail tech Ashley Grimmet paints intricate designs completely by hand without mass-produced stencils or complicated screen-printing equipment. Appendages can sport Ashley's customized 3-D nail art or enjoy a sleek coat of OPI or Gelish polish after no-chip manicures and pedicures. Clients can also pack a fashionable punch with Ashley's handcrafted necklaces, bracelets, and accessories.
Mocha walls drench Amour Nails & Day Spa in a warm and welcoming tone that, perhaps not by coincidence, correlates with a few of the spa’s mani-pedis. For example, both men and women can sink into a cushy pedicure throne and enjoy the Ooh-la-Latte treatment, which hydrates skin with a chocolate-latte bath and a sugar scrub. Nail technicians also indulge hands and feet with a range of other tasty-sounding products, such as milk and honey to moisturize skin and green tea to protect it from free radicals.
While the main floor—dedicated to nailcare—bustles with the sounds of whirling footbaths and chitchatting manicurists, private spa rooms whisk clients into a relaxation oasis where they can obtain a facial, massage, or one of four salt and sugar scrubs and body wraps. The beauty team also conducts waxing treatments in the private rooms to remove hair from bodies.
