The technicians at Smiles On The Run keep teeth bright and healthy with safety-conscious whitening techniques. Eschewing bleaches, lasers, and bottles of Wite-Out, staff members instead use a peroxide-based gel and LED lights to achieve noticeable results. During treatment—which typically lasts no longer than 45 minutes per session—they even coat gums and lips in a protective layer of Vitamin E gel to prevent the whitening compound from bleaching the gums.

The stylists at the locally owned SH Salons cut, style, and revitalize coiffures using high-end haircare products from brands such as Shiva, Silkology, and Clio. They also straighten locks by applying keratin treatments and relaxers, forgoing the now-defunct practice of hammering them over an anvil. Dedicated to bringing out clients’ beauty from head to toe, the experienced staff can also apply makeup or polish nails with dazzling hues.
The beauty pros at HMMC Houston specialize in rejuvenating and slimming treatments that require neither dark magic nor scalpels. They whittle down physiques with radiofrequency, cavitation, and body-contouring lasers, as well as a plethora of body wraps that address cellulite, skin laxity, and entrenched toxins. Chemical peels strip complexions clean of dull, dead skin cells and work to minimize the appearance of sun damage, fine lines, and dimples you don't find cute anymore, while micro-roller treatments stimulate healing and cell renewal with hundreds of teeny pokes.
Hair Gallery's team of stylists aim to give each customer personalized attention. A consultation at the start of each appointment ensures each stylist understands their client's hair needs and favorite pet name used, and comfortably situates each guest with a complimentary glass of coffee, wine, or beer. Chandeliers illuminate all the stylish transformations, which can transcend tress modification to include eyebrow or lip waxes, Shellac manicures, or full sets of acrylic nails.
Though Mimosa Spa specialists are committed to helping clients look their best, they are equally concerned with ensuring guests feel their best. That's why they supplement their beautifying facials and body wraps with relaxing massages in one of their 12 massage rooms and invite manicure recipients to recline in cushy massage chairs as bubbling whirlpools soak their feet. For waxes and full-body massage treatments, the staff welcomes clients to private rooms with soft, cushioned beds. Empathetic and experienced, they also take pains to address customers' questions and concerns, particularly before sensitive treatments such as permanent-makeup application or Brazilian waxes. The spa's decor unfolds across 4,000 square feet and also helps create a soothing atmosphere. Rustic stone pillars tower over the clean and cool tile floors, clear of clutter and illuminated by the soft glow of hanging lanterns. The warm orange walls are covered with art depicting peaceful scenes, such as a blustery autumn forest or a smooth river stone that's just dozed off to sleep.
Serenity Salon not only respects its clients, but also the earth. That’s just one of the reasons the stylists at Serenity Salon sprinkle their clients manes with all-natural, gluten-free Surface professional styling products, made of botanical oils, vegan proteins, sugars, and corn starches. These products accompany stylists' skills during signature cuts, styles, conditionings, and shampoos that seal in moisture and block out humidity, which can cause mold and unruly flyaways. To complement styling services, the salon offers color services, Babe hair extensions, and Brazilian keratin treatments.
