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.
First Impressions Salon.Spa's team of aestheticians cares for all skin and hair types with services backed by name-brand products, including eco-friendly line Pevonia. During facials, the brand's cruelty-free creams and masks infuse faces with natural ingredients, helping to correct skin suffering from acne or dullness and leaving it as silky smooth as an R&B crooner on a zamboni joyride. Massage therapists soothe tension with kneading styles that incorporate aromatherapy or hot stones, and hairstylists soothe strands with styling tonics from Redken and Sexy Hair. The salon services incorporate everything from simple bang trims and partial foils to Brazilian blowouts that swathe frizzy tresses in a protective layer of protein to calm frizz and keep hair from snacking between meals.
The founder of Med Spa at Seena One, Dr. Anees, draws on his specialization in endocrinology, gastroenterology, and his advanced training in laser spa technology to round out a list of services designed to counteract the effects of aging. His interest in laser skin rejuvenation extends to his skilled team of medical aestheticians, who regularly zap follicles with noninvasive Lumenis lasers and break down unsightly veins with penetrating heat energy. The spa?s cosmetic aestheticians find the sweet spot between relaxation and results, expunging stress and blemishes with facials, massages, and infrared-sauna treatments that sizzle heavy-metal toxins still lingering long after their 1980s heyday.
It's oft said that beauty is in the eye of the beholder, but Lindsey Coleman does her best to transfer it from her eye to her clients' bodies. Coleman honed her skills in the Forth Worth beauty dojo known as Ogle School Hair, Skin, & Nails before bringing her suite of skills to Legacy Salons and Day Spa. Though Coleman offers some hair-focused services such as eyelash extensions or waxing, her main focus remains the skin. She reduces pore size, banishes wrinkles, and infuses the body's largest organ with essential nutrients through a variety of delivery systems, ranging from facials to body scrubs and wraps. Like the sun, Coleman's even capable of darkening the skin with her airbrush tans or fusing hydrogen into helium with her hair dryer.
Knockouts Haircuts for Men amps up the classic barbershop experience with a lavish, sports-themed approach to men's styling that has been featured on Today and CNBC's The Big Idea with Donny Deutsch. At a still-growing number of locations throughout the country, the company's all-female staff of stylists quarterbacks a full playbook of services ranging from bare-essential to spa-worthy. First and foremost, they clip shaggy locks, but they also administer facials, manicures, massages, and waxes. Complimentary beverages are included with every visit, giving patrons something to sip on while watching a sports game on TV or contemplating how they would fend off a lion using just a comb.
Stylists are usually known as much for their skills as they are for their personality, and Ariel Hall is no exception. With a warm demeanor, beaming grin, and relaxed energy, Ariel sets clients at ease as she spruces up coifs with cuts, color, and styling that matches a favorite celebrity’s hairdo or a treasured Troll doll. Wielding handpicked products, Ariel smoothes and fortifies strands alongside her cohorts and fellow stylists Lacy Studdard and Jessica Woerner. Elsewhere in The Bungalow's homey confines, aesthetician Leigh Moody cleanses faces with renowned skincare products by Bioelements.
