Micki Collett grew up in Houston, but started feeling restless for a change; so she sold all her belongings and moved to Costa Rica. However, within two years, a serious motorcycle accident set her on an entirely different path. She turned to massage to help her through her injuries, and discovered that bodywork treatments could be about much more than relaxation. Upon returning to the United States, she started studying massage to help others experience that same healing power. At Skin Help Studio, Micki performs calming massages that use gentle Swedish strokes to relieve tension, and she also uses her knowledge of the deep-tissue, neuromuscular, and trigger-point modalities to target chronic aches and pains.
But she doesn't just offer massage treatments?Micki was inspired to study skincare after having issues with her own complexion, and now treats skin conditions ranging from acne, to sensitive skin, to signs of aging. She treats visages with a personalized assortment of products that can feature everything from exfoliating pineapple and cherry enzymes to essential vitamins and protein-enriched creams. Even her waxing treatments feature a personalized touch. Before each wax, Micki will decide which of her premium-grade hard or soft waxes will provide the most efficient and comfortable experience for each client.

Informed by years of experience, stylist Katy at Studio 107 knows better than to just drape a cloth over a client and start chopping away. In her own words, she "believes in a great consultation." Before administering any of her signature cuts, coloring, or highlighting services, she has a frank and honest conversation with each client. That helps her learn about their lifestyles while eyeing aesthetic factors such as facial shape, hair texture, eye color, and ability to wiggle their ears. From all that information, she crafts a style that augments their most flattering features while also respecting the hairstyle ideas they came in with. In addition to her professionalism, Katy also wants her clients to feel relaxed in her care, which is why each of her services include a soothing scalp massage.
What began as a hobby in high school turned into a lifelong vocation for hairstylist Linda Brinkley. She went from cutting her childhood friends' hair to regularly snipping and styling the strands of area newscasters, whether they were on air at the time or not. In a career spanning 35 years, Brinkley has created the Linda Brinkley Haircutting 101 tapes formerly advertised in national magazines, developed her own line of shampoos and conditioners that she recently reintroduced, and enjoyed the distinction of being a three-time graduate of the Roy Peters Color Academy.
While she is known for her hair coloring expertise—particularly her work with blonde highlights—and mastering the long, layered cut, Brinkley has also performed less conventional cuts. When a teenager requested that Brinkley partially shave one side of her shoulder-length hair off, the mane master asked what the client's mother would think. The response: "She has the same hairstyle." And Brinkley obliged.
One way to rejuvenate the skin, according to aesthetician Amanda Shannon, is with fire and ice. Of course, when she says fire, she doesn’t mean flames—she uses a warming glycolic peel to deeply purge pores. Her ice is seaweed, a plant that naturally cools the skin and plumps wrinkles. Shannon provides skincare treatments—including the Fire and Ice facial—that are customizable to each client’s skin type. She also specializes in eyebrow and lash tinting as well as waxing, services she’s honed throughout more than 10 years in the industry. Each session takes place amid her mint-green studio, where tranquil music and flickering candlelight leave clients more relaxed than a spaghetti noodle floating in a jacuzzi.
