Owner Mythili Muktevi truly believes the maxim that beauty starts from within. To this end, she focuses not only on fulfilling the beautification needs of her clients but on enveloping them in a welcoming, self-affirming environment. She and her talented team utilize a range of facials to quell troubles on a variety of skin types, infusing treatments with herbs, fruits, and plants that encourage glowing complexions and invigorate mental activity. Within the beauty haven?s salon area, stylists renovate lackluster locks with women?s and men?s haircuts and opt for relaxers and perms to transform the texture of manes. Additionally, waxing and threading sessions sweep away unwanted hairs, and henna services utilize a temporary dye to ink intricate designs along the body, eliminating the need to put a pet squid through art school.
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.
The beauty experts at Merle Norman Cosmetic Studio take a personal interest in their clients’ pores. They perform complimentary assessments of skin type before plucking the proper makeup from a varied inventory, ensuring foundations and shadows flatter complexions and compound eyes. Comprised of cosmetics and skincare from the Merle Norman line, which was born in Los Angeles in 1931, the beautifying powders and serums can be tested in-store before purchase. That means customers can sweep bronzing powder across cheekbones and seal in the sun-kissed hues with Expert Touch Finishing Spray before deciding if it really matches their favorite ski mask. In addition to the studio’s namesake line, staffers also stock professional OPI nail polish, perfumes, and accessories.

Roosters Men's Grooming Center provides stylish haircuts within the conversational environment that once thrived in traditional barbershops. With Roosters' full-service club cut, clients enjoy a professional haircut, a neck trim, a head-massaging rinse and style, and, like a cherry on top of their well-groomed face sundaes, a dash of aftershave. The old-fashion, full-facial shave softens skin with hot-steam towels, a deep-cleansing facial massage, and moisturizing lotions before a close shave shears away stubble. Burly football players and Chewbacca impersonators will find plenty of room inside Roosters' plush leather chairs. Clients can relax during the service by chatting with one of Roosters' stylists or by staring at the store's traditional barbershop pole until they can't remember their middle names.
All of the barbers at Shave have been trained by Master Barber Perry Gastis to ensure that their straight-razor shaves and barber cuts are up to snuff. The shop is one of the few barbershops with a staff trained in the use of Gastis’s Gentlemens Refinery line of all-natural, organic shaving products. Each shave comes with steaming hot towels and a luxurious shaving-cream lather, ensuring a close enough shave to pass inspection by the panel of gentlemen’s valets who license all barbers.
The staff supplies a complimentary beer or whiskey to each guest who takes a seat in the wood-and-leather styling thrones. The waiting area’s old-fashioned quilted armchairs and sprawling animal-pelt rug recall the smoking lounge of a gentlemen’s club of long ago, though a chunk of modern Houston skyline gleams through full-length windows just beyond.
