Veteran stylist William Edge wields 20 years of experience as a platform artist and world traveler to lead the staff at his eponymous family of salons, spread across Texas and Tennessee. At each location, teams brandish an arsenal of all-natural Aveda products forged from plants and environmentally friendly ingredients found across the globe. Equipped with such powerful conditioning and coloring supplies, they curtail unruly locks with shaping, shading, and retexturing services, and enhance radiant tresses with spa services, such as massages, facials, and makeup applications. Additionally, the salons' seasoned crew helps hone future stylists' skills at Prodedgy, its own training salon for emerging talent.
21st Century Dental expanded its aesthetic umbrella in 2009 to include 21st Century Med Spa, spreading the office?s goal of enhancing smiles to include other parts of the face and body. Medical director Brandon Charles oversees the clinic and aesthetic nurse Cheryl Gwartney masters specialty services that serve her personal passion for making patients feel confident in their own skin. Laser facial services plump and tighten facial skin to erase irregularities such as age spots, acne, and sun spots. Cheryl also wields syringes full of Radiesse, Dysport, and Restylane formulas that smooth facial wrinkles in order for adults to be able to sneak into G-rated movies.
Voted Best Salon in Irving in 2012, Jessy's Girl Hair Salon & Spa is a contemporary space staffed by a creative team of licensed stylists. This modern beauty spot sparkles with dangling chandeliers, zebra-print design accents, and giant mirrors that reflecting the salon?s on-trend styles. Whether they're performing hair services, extensions, mani-pedis, or custom makeup applications, the stylists work together as a team, creating new looks to bring out the beauty in everyone who sits down in the salon?s cushy, reclining chairs.
When licensed aesthetician Sherry Smith isn't showcasing her beauty skills on WFAA-TV or teaching physicians about peels and laser aesthetics, she uses her extensive education and 25 years of experience to help patients look their best through various spa services. Besides treatments performed at her own salon, Smith's appointment book is full of industry speaking engagements and unwrinkled pages free of fine lines.
Licensed massage therapist Christina Pocharasang at Natural Art of Massage relieves clenched muscles and tense minds with a retinue of modalities. With the aid of all-natural creams and oils, her sweeping strokes spell out Swedish and deep-tissue movements that dispel stress and unravel knots in backs, shoulders, and limbs. The bodywork specialist also treats skin to natural facials and harnesses the penetrating heat of warm river stones to release knots without touching them, much like a Boy Scout with telekinesis.

Each massage takes place inside a private studio with soft lighting and relaxing music.
