Cosmetologist Tonya Wilson has not spent her nearly two-decade-long career coasting. Rather, when she's away from the salon chair, she bolsters her skill set with advanced technique classes, hair shows, and speed-cutting sessions during elevator rides. In addition to the usual cut and color services, Tonya smoothes strands with Brazilian Blowout treatments and transforms locks with weaves.

Pedestrians navigating the historical charm of McKinney's downtown square step into Pavitra Organic Day Spa and find themselves in another type of nostalgic haven—one that honors a time when skincare was all-natural. The eco-friendly spa's name originates from the Sanskrit word meaning "pure" and is honored in the spa's use of botanically based and organic products from brands such as Juice Beauty and Farmaesthetics. Services such as the signature organic facial employ only eco-friendly supplies, and staffers enhance massages with sea salt from WoodSprite's Muscle Mender line. Experts also remove hair from face and body using an all-natural blend of beeswax and essential oils.
The spa's waiting area amplifies its relaxing ambiance with a soft, ecru-colored sofa and decorations inspired by nature, including sand, stones, tree branches, and a cross-section of rainbow preserved in a glass jar. The crew further demonstrates its commitment to caring for the world by sponsoring community events.
