The Crossings, Austin’s premier green resort, provides visitors with an environmentally friendly stress-shedding getaway more convenient than orbiting the planet in a soundproof space pod.

The hair gurus at Restoration Hair Salon + Spa restore hair to its original luster using their mad skills and a number of popular haircare tools.

Saloni Beauty Salon draws upon Indian beauty-and-relaxation treatments to help clients look and feel their best.

They specialize in threading, an Indian hair-removal technique that uproots unwanted follicles using only a single cotton thread. They also can accent bodies with henna tattoos, semipermanent designs that can last up to one month.
At Onyx Salon, a talented staff of stylists and aestheticians renovate women's and men's faces, nails, bodies, and ?dos with masterfully executed services.

Brow and facial waxes de-fuzz mugs for professional makeup applications, and spray tans prep bodies for the beach or provide camouflage for pilfered Olympic gold medals. In addition to their regular beauty-boosting appointments, the stylists host glamour parties, where they gussy up guests with eye-catching hair and makeup before releasing them into the wild for bachelorette parties and nights on the town.
