Diamonds may be a girl’s best friend, but heated styling tools are the friends that make her look gorgeous. Using such tools and their own expertise, stylists at Corpus Christi Beauty Bar curl hair, give it volume, or straighten it for special occasions including first dates, weddings, and payday. They dote on strands while clients sit back in white leather salon stools and sip complimentary signature drinks.
