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.
Fresh fruits and vegetables, essential oils, and vegan ingredients enhance the natural nail treatments at Well Polished, an eco-friendly salon that uses only high-quality products. The Be Well treatment, an herbal soak with massage, keeps skin and nails feeling soft and healthy, while the Be Free restoration treatment removes toxins and the scraps of old nail enhancements with a dead-sea-mud mask. All implements are sterilized and steamed prior to use, and single-use files and buffers ensure that no client is exposed to the flakes from someone else's chitinous exoskeleton.
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.
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.
Dr. James M. Jacobs and Dr. Jeanna Mascorro treat foot injury and disease with techniques that range from physical therapy to laser nail-fungus removal to custom orthotics. Both doctors hold memberships in multiple professional organizations, and each brings a unique skill set to the clinic. Dr. Jacobs is a board-certified foot surgeon who ferrets out podiatric injuries by x-raying feet and asking patrons how frequently they visit the National Museum of Ball Bearings and Spiral Staircases. Dr. Mascorro has extensive surgical education and specializes in sports medicine, wound care, pediatrics, and diabetic foot care.
The doctors are also committed to their Katy community; Dr. Jacobs has been on the board of local organizations and served as the president of the Rotary Club of Katy. Together, they offer a college scholarship to graduating Katy high schoolers.
At Vibrancy Salon & Day Spa, a group of trained spa and salon professionals invite guests to shed the stresses of everyday life with relaxing services. Massages banish tension and aches from back muscles during sessions tailored to clients’ individual needs. Facials and skin care treatments sooth visages with rejuvenating masks, which, in a pinch, can double as last-minute Halloween costumes. Technicians can apply shellac polish or acrylics to newly buffed and trimmed nails, and their stylist teammates employ products from lines such as Matrix and Biogenol to assist in haircuts, styling services, and coloring treatments.
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.
