Dr. Patrick Beckham has seen a great deal of advancement in plastic surgery during his 35 years of servicing patients in Austin and surrounding areas. First certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery in 1972, Dr. Beckham is known as one of the first innovators in breast-implant technology and has kept up-to-date with the changes in surgery techniques. Aside from plastic surgeries, his other services have advanced as well—from invasive liposuction to noninvasive body-contouring treatments and a nonsurgical face-lift that reduces acne and leaves skin supple, like a pillow under a layer of whipped cream. The staff relieves pain and removes tension with timeless Swedish or deep-tissue massage as well as the touchless hydrotherapy massage, which uses rotating water jets along the body.
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. Their haircuts, coloring services, and Coppola keratin smoothing treatments prompt an instant onslaught of double takes from onlookers and aimless hairnets. 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.
Leave it to best friends of 14 years to share everything, including a lifelong passion for beauty and a business partnership that allows them to explore that passion. That’s the case for Misty Hill and Julie Pellizzaro, who worked in the beauty industry together for 10 years before they opened Halo Hair Salon. Now, inside their own studio, the duo transforms appearances with hair-color services, makeup, lash extensions, and airbrush tanning. The point of these services is to help women exude the power of the salon’s mascot, the pinup girl, who symbolizes independence, confidence, and America’s love for affixing things to walls. Pellizzaro and Hill are also certified DreamCatchers hair-extension artists and educators for Sexy Hair Co.
VIP Spa's treatments are all customizable, and none more so than its massages. Tailored to the client's aches and pains, the kneads come in a choice of three styles?gentle relaxation, deep tissue, and hot stone?and each can be further enhanced with an array of add-ons. Clients can opt for a scalp massage to temper tension above the neck, for instance, or a hand-and-foot scrub to free extremities from scaly skin or rust.
The spa team isn't just concerned with muscles, though. They also tend to visages, with facials geared towards brightening, calming, or firming complexions. And, patrons can even enhance their style in the on-site boutique, which is home to a colorful collection of purses and jewelry sets.
Lejeune Skin and Body Care owner Natalie Lejeune believes that clients deserve private, one-on-one attention to address their body's individual needs. Wielding her experience as a licensed aesthetician and massage therapist, she works with her staff to orchestrate custom treatments to rejuvenate skin. Together they refresh visages with advanced techniques including antioxidant facials to repair damaged skin and exfoliating peels to stimulate youthful glows. In addition, Lejeune Skin and Body Care offers individualized aromatherapy, acupressure, reflexology, and detoxifying wraps to clear energy pathways blocked by stress or the riddle-posing sphinxes that reside in most spleens.
No matter the age, gender, or follicle count of their clients, the professionals at Premier Cuts treat them to stylish services in a comfortable setting. They tend to adults with cuts, facial waxings, and thoughtful add-ons such as hot towels, and can style your hair for photo-shoots or special occasions. Children, meanwhile, receive haircuts in airplane styling chairs, where they can pretend to be pilots or watch their favorite cartoons. All treatments are performed with professional products.
