The Strand Salon's certified epidermal artisans refurbish weatherworn frontispieces with a 15- to 30-minute microdermabrasion skin-sprucing treatment. To kick things off, an amicable aesthetician will expunge loitering filth during a preprocedure cleansing. Then, the skin specialist will gingerly slough off sullied epidermal layers and dead skin cells using a diamond-tipped wand that sluices the face with a stream of microcrystals. By reducing tegument thickness, the treatment gooses lazy collagen into production mode, shooing away fine lines and burrowing skin gophers. A sumptuous slathering of moisturizer completes the treatment, leaving faces hydrated and refreshed. The Strand recommends clients abstain from using makeup and undergoing ritualistic lard baths 24 hours prior to their appointment.

Krystal Dees of Lashes & Locks wields her styling expertise over curly and straight hair, and every texture in between. She sets to work in a salon and spa that, in addition to offering hair treatments, also provides clients with skin care services such as facials, body wraps, and tanning. To cap off new looks, the team applies mink and synthetic extensions to eyelashes, drawing attention to faces and away from vestigial tails.
Precious Girls children's day spa is designed to make its pint-sized clientele feel like royalty. Girls can come in for an afternoon of pampering, to celebrate a birthday party, or partake in a fairy dust fun station project inside the boutique. The spa also treats guests to manicures, pedicures, and relaxing foot soaks. Those looking to stretch their creativity can even try a cake decorating class.
Between graduating from beauty school and earning certifications in Lanza, Schwarzkopf, and the Coppola Keratin-Smoothing system, stylist Adrianne Lowes somehow managed to get two businesses off the ground. Her superhuman work ethic eventually led her to start a third business, The Ritz Salon and Spa, which has grown from her passion project into Burleson’s go-to spot for professional styling and relaxation.
For evidence of Adrianne’s dedication to the interrelated arts of beauty and health, one need not look further than The Ritz’s lengthy list of services, which range from the salon’s hair and waxing treatments to the spa’s facials and massages. The spa even boasts a therapy center, where resident chiropractor Dr. Don Haygood heals aching muscles with chiropractic, med-spa, and acupuncture treatments. Along with its beauty and health services, The Ritz houses a chic fashion boutique, where visitors can search for a cute outfit to complement their newly cropped hair or freshly scrubbed face tattoos.
Like many Texan women, Lacy Studdard and Jessica Woerner love big hair. Regular clients at The Bungalow, however, will attest that their styling interests extend beyond voluminous ‘dos. By complementing their cuts with dashes of ruby-red lipstick and quirky hair ornaments, the salon's co-owners create styles that they describe as “fun, funky, and relaxed.” Though the salon's vintage turquoise walls and hood dryers evoke a bygone era, Keratin Complex smoothing treatments and Cinderella hair extensions prove that the menu of services resides on the cutting edge of fashion.
In The Bungalow's spa, aesthetician Leigh Moody draws on Bioelements products to perform facials that can be customized with microdermabrasion treatments and collagen lip masks. She can also expertly apply Xtreme lash extensions, which replicate real lashes in their thickness and ability to protect eyes from the government's brainwashing radio waves.
