The Glazery is chock-full of more than 1,000 different ceramic pieces, serving as waiting canvases for paintbrush-wielding patrons. Friends, couples, and enemies stuck together after a terrible rubber-cement accident can select a paintbrush and a multitude of paint colors to breathe life into white ceramic shapes. Containers shaped like cupcakes, owls, and donuts ($15.70 each) can be painted any hue of the rainbow, and customers can create a ceramic menagerie by painting winks and smirks on animal figurines ($15.70 each). The Glazery also carries authorized Disney figurines ($17.55 each), allowing artists to give Minnie an updated frock and Mickey a full-body dye job. The cost of the ceramic piece covers everything except for tax, and post-kiln projects will be ready for pickup about a week after being painted.
The aestheticians at Miracle Lashes help clients find peace of mind by providing quick fixes as well as semi-permanent solutions for a range of cosmetic concerns. With more than 18 years of experience, the salon's permanent makeup artist can add definition and shape to brows and lips. For a less permanent solution, airbrush-makeup services also help even out skin tone for special occasions by concealing acne scars and birthmarks.
Elsewhere in the studio, stylists and colorists—all personally trained by hair-care maven Kim Vō—create eye-catching hairdos using ammonia-free products that leave heads looking healthy and lustrous. They also apply individual lash extensions to create a similarly dramatic new look around the eyes. Additionally, Miracle Lashes offers full-body skincare treatments intended to hydrate, nourish, and exfoliate the skin.

Bikram Hot Yoga Missouri City's certified Bikram instructors aim to help students of all levels and ages diminish waistlines, build stamina, and limber up in temperatures of up to 105 degrees with 40%–45% humidity. While fostering personal growth within their students, they systematically work muscles and tendons across the entire body while flowing through Bikram's rigorous sequence of 26 postures and two breathing exercises. The therapeutic heat, meanwhile, facilitates safer, deeper stretching as it helps coax out toxin-laden perspiration and raise heart rates, much like middle-school slow dances.
In addition to offering onsite showers, the studio ensures a hygienic practice space with antibacterial flooring, water-filtration systems, CO2 sensors to maintain the level of fresh oxygen flow, and an ultraviolet air-treatment system that zaps unwanted microbes.
