Apothecaries predate modern chemistry and pharmacology by hundreds of years, tracing their tradition of fashioning medicinal compounds from natural ingredients to Baghdad in the 8th century and Chaucer's Canterbury Tales. These skilled practitioners developed proven techniques to heal weary patients with organic balms and soothe hoards of barbarian Gauls with aromatic oils. Located near Lake Ray Hubbard, Affinity Salon & Spa mines these ancient techniques in its own apothecary, custom-making products and reinforcing their mission to guarantee each client "quality services with a personal touch." Winners of a 2010 Talk of the Town award, the staffers dote on every guest with spa and salon services that integrate oils, herbs, and teas to foster a relaxing, organic experience.
With 11,000 square feet of lockers, private treatment rooms, and lounge-like waiting areas, Spa at Lake Ray Hubbard fully embraces its role as a luxuriant and stately oasis. Amid this royal setting, the staff members indulge and pamper their clients with high-end treatments that nourish the skin and hair with natural, organic products. Facials hydrate and exfoliate the cheekbones, although Spa At The Mansions also uses cutting-edge technology?including everything from diamond-tipped microdermabrasion wands to infrared light?to dramatically improve skin tone and texture. The center?s contouring body wraps also help by creating svelte silhouettes and nourishing the skin with aloe, herbs, and powdered mermaid scales.
In the foyer of Legacy Salons and Day Spa, wrought-iron bars curl up the salon's windows, casting ivy-like shadows across the clay-brown walls. Faux marble tiles guide guests toward private spa rooms for relaxing treatments such as facials, therapeutic massages, and lava-lamp viewings. Further down the hall, an open salon area invites hair renovation with sleek layers, restorative condition treatments, and bold highlights. Stylist Lauren Jones is certified in fusion and tape hair extensions, and in Brazilian Blowout smoothing treatments. She specializes in both color and texture services, and is experienced with high-end color lines such as Keune.
Opened in March 2013, Curl Up & Dye Hair Studio has jumped off the starting blocks and into an all-out sprint toward beautifying clients with all-over color, makeup applications, and Brazilian blowouts. Artful stylist Felisia uses her certification in Fusion extensions and Brazilian Blowouts to keep clients hair looking good. The studio leverages an array of quality products during services, including potent formulas from such brands as Keune, TiGi Brazilian Blowout, and Kevin Murphy.
The stylists at E'lan Hair studio appreciate bold statements, using their skills with shears and dye to craft 'dos with pink tips, blue mohawks, and sparkly extensions. Of course, they also appreciate the subtly found in delicate high- and lowlights or a slight hue changes such as going from from brunette to auburn. They perform all these services for clients of all ages, but particularly specialize in helping kids and women discover the most fetching way to attract a balloon.
Beautiful Creations by Erica is an apt name for this salon because that is exactly what happens here: owner and stylist Erica transforms her clients’ hair into beautiful creations. Whether she’s snipping strands, adding volume with extensions, or changing someone’s identity with coloring treatments, Erica tailors her services to enhance her clients’ natural beauty. “I am so passionate about what I do, and it shows through each client,” she said.
