Since 2007, the Robots-4-U team has been teaching children a program of STEM—science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. Children absorb skills and knowledge through entertaining interactions with instructors, other campers, and robot kits. The camp maintains a 16:1 student to instructor ratio, ensuring children receive the proper amount of individual attention. Campers build robot kits comprising a brain unit and sensory appendages, which replicate seeing, hearing, touching and reading minds. Once the bots are assembled, children enter their creations into racing, dancing, and battle-bot challenges.
Sungum Salon's skincare professionals rejuvenate epidermises with treatments culled from time-honored methods and resources such as ancient Indian therapeutic techniques and Ayurvedic herbs. Their face-care services range from microdermabrasion and facial masks to steams and glycolic peels, whose ingredients—naturally extracted sugar cane, sugar beets, and raw grapes—exfoliate skin while diminishing wrinkles and acne scars. For the rest of the body, an exotic fruit or oatmeal-honey scrub exfoliates skin more effectively than lining your trousers with coarse-grain sandpaper. Sungum Salon's full-body treatments also include a seaweed-and-French-clay wrap, which infuses skin with nutrients, and henna sessions that adorn hands, feet, or backs with temporary ornate designs.
Although the stylists at Crisp Salon are seasoned professionals, each one is also a student. That's because they receive ongoing training with Aveda salon educators to keep their hair, nail, and makeup services right on the cusp of fashion. Stylists apply their up-to-date knowledge to deliver chip-free Shellac manicures, frizz-defying Brazilian blowouts, and makeovers with Aveda cosmetics. The environmentally friendly makeup line crafts bold colors and natural shades with non-petroleum minerals, natural botanicals, and a rainbow's leftover bathwater.
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.
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.
Owners Daniel and Maria Brown oversee experienced stylists who skillfully perform an array of beautifying services, from haircuts and straightening treatments to facials and massages. In addition, they extract unwanted hair with Alexandria sugar paste and detoxify pores with body wraps. They also accentuate features with permanent makeup, which can streamline a person’s morning routine so they can spend more time engaged in staring contests with their pets before work.
