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.

Body Biotics Health & Wellness does what few gyms can—it tones muscles while clients lie down in a softly lit room and snooze or read a book. And it's all possible thanks to Ria and Robey Taute's FDA-approved Electro-Slim treatments, technology designed to stimulate the muscles with mild currents delivered via strategically placed electrodes. The currents quickly contract the muscles, which results in the tightening and toning of particularly troublesome areas, such as the abdomen and love handles.
In addition to helping people spot-treat fat, the Electro-Slim currents boost blood circulation for clients with diabetes and help strengthen muscles for athletes who need rehabilitation after an injury. Body Biotics Health & Wellness also uses supplements such as Body Biotics, pH Perfect, and Aloe Pure aim to rid bodies of toxins and other impurities. These are especially when combined with the nutritional counseling of the onsite diet specialists and National Broccoli Association representatives.
