Master stylist, educator, and platform artist Nina Grossman traveled the country before settling in Texas. Over the course of 16 years, she honed her skills from Alaska to New York, landing in Austin in 2007 to open Luxe A Boutique Salon. Throughout her career, Grossman has mentored up-and-coming beauty pros on the art of hair design as well as the importance of listening to clients' needs and reinterpretations of show-tune classics. She's gathered a team of master stylists and color specialists, makeup artists, and aestheticians to perform services that range from haircuts and highlights to peels and threading.
Her salon's exposed-brick walls and leather chairs lend it sophistication, and damask-like patterns juxtaposed with animal prints nod to both vintage and contemporary sensibilities. In a private, chocolate-toned skincare room, associates perform fragrant facials with Éminence Organic Skin Care products, soothing complexions in the way the floral artwork soothes the mind. Afterward, women can shop for apparel and accessories in the boutique area or head to the outdoor patio to relax before reemerging into the world.
The sun or a flashbulb? Sierra Scott will definitely take the first over the latter, preferring to work with natural light and as little equipment as necessary. That doesn't mean she has abandoned technology, though. While keeping the tinkering limited, she still does some light retouching to get images just right. She snaps those images during portrait sessions for families, couples, and individuals, as well as during fashion and lifestyle shoots.
At Quality Frames & Art, meticulous staff members gingerly unfurl customers' art before smoothing it into place inside a custom-made frame or eco-friendly molding from Larson-Juhl. Interior-design power teams of mats and frames transform posters into easy-to-hang art, and sleek modern or decadent baroque molding convinces mirrors to gleam brighter than a comet after a dental appointment. The team can preserve memories by encasing jewelry, instruments, and other collectibles in striking shadowboxes for vintage flair. In addition to matting and mounting photos, staff members can repair clients' damaged frames and cracked glass. For patrons robing their walls from scratch, the shop also stocks paintings by more than a dozen local artists, including landscapes, portraits, and still-life scenes.
For 10 years, the technicians at Save Your Tapes have preserved customers’ memories by transferring the contents of VHS, VHS-C, Hi-8, and Mini-DVs onto pristine DVDs. After picking up customers’ tapes in person, technicians transfer their contents to DVD—complete with a custom menu and label—and place the DVD in a protective sleeve ready for customers to pick up. Mail service is also available. Save Your Tapes offers tape repair services and photo slideshows in addition to its transfer services.
