Salon Chic Downtown’s owner, Rose Zagra, draws on 20 years of beauty-industry experience and nine years as a Creative Nail Design master technician to orchestrate a symphony of luxurious beauty treatments. To guarantee personalized service, each treatment, like all good superhero-sidekick relationships, kicks off with a one-on-one question-and-answer session. Salon Chic's nail technicians have all spent at least five years beautifying extremities, and can beautify nails with traditional polish, long-lasting CND Shellac, or artificial tips that lengthen fingers without having to spike the hand cream with fertilizer. The salon’s hair services include texture-altering treatments that range from perms to Brazilian blowouts, and its facials and chemical peels employ products from Bioelements and SkinMedica to rejuvenate skin.
County Line Beauty Salon's technicians have more than 15 years of experience turning unremarkable locks into strikingly colorful and masterfully cut coifs. After clients declare their desired look, stylists snip hairs into place before skillfully deploying blow-dryers to create a lustrous, straightened sheen not unlike that of a freshly ironed snakeskin. Those who choose to top newly cropped coifs with some color can sit back as the salon's stockpile of Redken products power a color conversion that rehues strategically chosen strands to create dynamic partial highlights. A face-framing new cut and blow-dry takes about 45 minutes and highlights usually take an additional hour of chair time. Both treatments can translate into a youthful-looking head, which often translates into a youthful strut and a plethora of compliments from friends, strangers, and the insides of hats. Though not included with this Groupon, full highlights are available for an additional cost.
Within the deep-vanilla walls of A New U Salon & Spa, stylist Jennifer Thompson sets up shop with all the necessary tools and brand-name hair potions needed to style, nourish, and transform her clients’ locks. Each of Jennifer’s treatments begins with an in-depth consultation, during which she discusses her subject's desired style, level of upkeep, and bridge-clearance height before picking up her shears or coloring brush. As a Redken-certified colorist, Jennifer refreshes hairstyles through her expertise in face-flattering cuts and subtle yet stylish hue transformations.
As an education ambassador for CND, Salon Bellezza owner Ann knows way more than a thing or two about nails. In fact, when she is not painting tips in vibrant hues at her salon, she travels around Texas teaching other professionals about manicures and proper patty-cake moves. Her stylists tackle all the hair-related services, from simple cuts to total transformations with highlights or all-over color.
Nails Lounge pampers its clients the moment they walk through the door. The soothing decor, replete with warm colors and natural accents, prepares clients for their nail or spa services of choice. Long-stemmed roses greet patrons at each table as they sit down for a manicure, during which nail techs exfoliate the skin and sink hands into ultramoisturizing paraffin wax. During a pedicure, lower limbs enjoy scented scrubs and massages while clients sip from glasses of champagne perched on an attached shelf. The massage room wraps its visitors inside its tranquil aura as they lie down for a Swedish massage or a hot-stone massage that heals soreness while integrating Swedish techniques. A screen, painted with cherry-blossom branches, creates stress-dissolving serenity with the illusion of a natural landscape. Aestheticians also keep skin healthy and smooth with deep-cleansing facials, exfoliating body scrubs, and body wraps.
