Every time Linda Dang performs a facial, she tweaks her method slightly to account for the differences in individual skin types. A licensed medical aesthetician with more than 14 years expertise in anti-aging skincare, she offers more than a dozen facial treatments, including microdermabrasion, LED light therapy, dermaculture Iontophoresis, and chemical peels. The variety of treatments ensures that she can offer her clients options for all skin types when they want to combat acne, wrinkles, uneven pigmentation, or overexposure to the sun. She also offers other cosmetic services, including permanent-makeup applications, micropigmentation, eyebrow tinting, and mole removal. Semipermanent eyelash extensions elongate natural lashes to eliminate the need for mascara and eyelash curlers, and can last indefinitely with proper home care and regular touch-ups.
Imagine losing all of your hair—what would that do to your self-confidence and quality of life? With the belief that hair is much more than a fashion accessory, Untourage Salon Retreat owner Tanissa Carmon uses custom-fitted cranial hair prostheses to help clients to feel good about their appearance when dealing with hair loss, whether due to illness or heredity.
This dedication to giving people peace of mind also shows in Tanissa's other salon services, which range from stylish cuts to smoothing keratin treatments to seamless extensions—all of which begin with a complimentary consultation to determine each client's preferred look and salon nickname. As clients settle into cozy styling chairs, the 800-square-foot space reverberates with the sounds of experienced stylists snipping, smoothing, and lengthening 'dos backed by a soundtrack of instrumental jazz music.
Under the medical direction of Dr. David Braunreiter, the staff at You Only Younger provide skincare and beauty-enhancement services using only medically proven products. Licensed aestheticians perform skin-moisturizing facials to combat blemishes and signs of aging. Our injectors use dermal fillers and neuromodulators to erase fine lines and wrinkles. With technology such as the micro laser peel, the team can also remove outermost layers of skin to exfoliate with absolute precision ranging from 6 to 50 microns per treatment. Laser services also extend to tattoo and hair removal as well as fading stretch marks and spider veins that don?t look as cool as Spider-Man?s. To treat cellulite and loose skin on thighs, arms, and chins, they use The Reaction by Viora, a system featured on The Doctors.
At LongTimeLiner & Lash Studio, a team of beauty experts goes to work touching up faces and bodies using seven different types of facials, as well as airbrush tanning, waxing, and semipermanent makeup. The spa's menu also encompasses powerful microdermabrasion treatments and chemical peels, which go even deeper to root out wrinkles, fine lines, and shrubbery growing in crevices under the cheekbones.
Despite her youth, Farah—owner and main cosmetologist of The Waxing Boutique—has built up an impressive resume. After graduating from Paul Mitchell The School Houston, she spent some time primping models for notable runway appearances and fashion shoots, including Houston Fashion Week, the Danny Nguyen Show, and the Alice in Wonderland Fashion Show. While working on those high-profile projects, she sorted out her true cosmetological calling and started leveling up her expertise in waxing. Pouring that same meticulousness into her waxing has paid off, particularly in the form of one staggering promise: painless Brazilian wax.
The numbing cream helps, but Farah realizes that it's the anxiety—not the actual waxing—that trips most folks up. To that end, she deploys impeccable bedside manner, a little charm, and loads of professionalism. She even puts harried minds at ease with a hyper-hygienic "never double dip" policy. Add hot towels to open and relax pores, and the guarantee that the whole show'll be over within 15 minutes, and you start to get an idea of why Farah uses words like "pampering" when she talks about waxing.
She uses creme and soft wax with equal adeptness, clearing underarms of hair or sculpting eyebrows into delicate arches. After all, she started her waxing career as an arch expert. And as a Paul Mitchell cosmetology graduate, she keeps a slew of tricks up her sleeve. Folks can pop in for haircuts, color and highlights, and makeup applications, and if they want to learn from her experience, they can take a 30-minute mini-course on how to recreate the look at home.

As its name might suggest, The Blink Bar caters exclusively to dramatic eyes and the fluttering lashes that make them stand out. There, technicians apply luxury lash extensions one by one to lengthen and thicken natural lashes. Extensions range from le fling—a half set—to extra-thick VIP-list lashes made out of Siberian silk and mink. In addition to applying lashes in their well-appointed studio, technicians go mobile, carrying with them more than 100 lash varieties and a non-irritating adhesive that ensures steady coverage for four to six weeks. The Blink Bar also hosts private parties, inviting groups to gather, enjoy drinks, and revitalize winks with eyelash makeovers.
