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.
The stylists at Something Special Styling Salon beautify hair in a number of ways from sew weaves, extensions, and natural hair transitioning to locks and twists. They can also cut and color hair or perform hot oil or relaxing treatments. All stylists are well-versed in haircare and draw from years of experience. For instance, Melva Williams has been in the beauty industry for more than 24 years and leads healthy hair seminars to help women take care of their locks.
Regina Aldridge, the owner of Divine Destiny Salon, specializes in cutting and styling ethnic hair types. Through her many years in the beauty industry, Regina has sharpened her vision and perfected her technique, enabling her to answer any client request⎯be it for a classic cut or a cutting-edge style⎯with a savvy hand. Regina and her team specialize in extensions and hair-attachment methods, as well as coloring and makeup application.
Pat Taylor draws on more than 20 years of experience while snipping a quick bang trim or pampering full-throttle with a deep-conditioning treatment, signature haircut, and highlights. She also straightens out unruly frizz with a specialty smoothing treatment and lengthens locks with natural-looking hair extensions.
The initials in AIB Salon stand for "art of Indian beauty," and traditional South Asian beauty techniques are indeed its focus. Stylists can deftly use modern techniques such as Japanese hair-straightening or permanent eyelash extensions, but the team specializes in the ancient art of threading—manipulating 100% cotton threads to remove unwanted facial hair with more speed and precision than waxing, shaving, or tweezing. It's also gentle, since the thread lassoes each hair without causing discomfort to the surrounding skin.
Newly de-fuzzed faces can celebrate with facial treatments that incorporate herbs and even gold. Indeed, a taste for glamour permeates AIB Salon: makeup artists revel in creating jaw-dropping wedding looks and, especially, henna designs almost too elaborate to be believed.
The recipe for the runway-ready styles that emerge within Eleven 11 Hair Studio begins with its location: a 3,000-square-foot studio designed by architect Eddie Maestri and interior designer Jamie Carroll, situated in Dallas's luxurious Uptown neighborhood in front of Hotel Zaza, and across the street from Hotel Crescent and the Ritz Carlton. In this spa-like setting, stylists?many of whom also serve as educators for leading beauty companies?call on both time-honored and cutting-edge techniques to create stylish, flattering looks for men and women.
The service menu goes far beyond haircuts and styles to include hair extensions and bold color treatments ranging from classic highlights to balayage, a freehand technique that creates a gradient ombre effect to suggest time spent lying on the beach or coloring your hair in a sunset. The staff can transform hair's texture, too: Japanese straightening treatments leave hair smooth and straight until it grows out, and Brazilian Blowouts control curl and boost shine for up to three months. Aesthetic experts also perform makeup applications and bridal services. The salon extends its regular Tuesday through Saturday business hours to include services by appointment on Sundays and Mondays, so clients with strapped schedules can always find a time that works for them, seven days a week.
