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.
A wildly successful alternative to traditional day spas—its more than 300 locations blanket 36 states and half a dozen countries—Planet Beach Contempo Spa is a futuristic relaxation station where state-of-the-art machines administer all the spa and tanning services. These friendly automatons sometimes replace familiar treatments, as in the Luminous facial, a light-based service that delivers blemish-busting results similar to those of a conventional facial. But other equipment maps out new spa territory entirely: the hydro-derma fusion chamber moisturizes the whole body with nutrient-rich steam in order to offset the effects of a dry climate or a rear-end collision with a salt truck. Other machines whiten teeth, spray tan skin, and massage muscles.
Planet Beach operates on a gym-style membership system, meaning that members purchase packages or pay flat monthly rates. As members spend more time at the spa, they get to know the helpful assistants who are always on hand to demonstrate how to use the equipment without activating its ability to cry.
The licensed staff at Regency Healing Medical Clinic combats wrinkles, acne, and other skin ailments for all skin types with the noninvasive HydraFacial treatment. Aestheticians cleanse facial expanses before buffing away roughened skin with a combination of exfoliation, moisturizers, and motivational shots of Mount Rushmore's complexions. The hydradermabrasion treatment then evicts the oil and specks that mar complexions with a set of extractions before sealing in skin's glow with a layer of protective hydration. Treating common skin ailments such as wrinkles, acne, hyperpigmentation, and sun damage, the serum-based resurfacing leaves complexions clear and bright without resorting to invasive procedures, such as Christmas light implants. Patrons leave the 30-minute skin pick-me-up ready to immediately flaunt smooth faces without any downtime.
