At Aesthetic Salon and Spa, the facials brighten skin with creative ingredients, from hydrating doses of vitamin C to 24-karat gold. The gold is a key ingredient in one of the rejuvenating creams—it lends skin a youthful glow, much like your “darkness light” that’s really just an adult night-light. The glycolic acid in a chemical peel improves tone and texture, and the parafango in a body wrap deals with toxins and cellulite.
Complementing these beauty treatments are various stress-relieving massages, with Swedish, deep-tissue, reflexology, and other modalities available. And on the salon side, you'll find styling and coloring options such as perms, extensions, highlights, and conditioning treatments.
Mandy Mizzell has been a licensed stylist in the Dallas area for six years and currently works out of the upscale Firewheel Salons space. Inside her private treatment suite, she nimbly uses scissors to create one-of-a-kind looks that fit each client's aesthetic tastes and personality. In addition to haircuts and color treatments, Mandy specializes in hair extensions that can help people get the look of added length without having to sew scarves into their hair.
When you sit down in Skyler Bailey's salon chair, you're not just basking in the skills of a hairdresser. You're also experiencing the training of a fashion-model stylist and pageant coach, whose knowledge of hair and makeup is worthy of runways and centerfolds alike. At her private studio within The Salons at Bella Suites, she elevates each of her face-flattering haircuts and color services with meticulous styling, a skill she mastered in a former job at a blow-dry bar. "Styling hair is the best part of the service," she explains. "You may get a great haircut or color but if it isn't styled correctly, the hair doesn't look the best."
She also performs facial waxing and professional makeup applications, bringing out her clients' natural beauty with occasion-appropriate cosmetics for a wedding day, prom night, or Smurf reunion. But above all, she makes sure that every appointment is a relaxing one. "Clients go to salons to pamper themselves and have 'me' time," she says. "It should be all about them because life is hectic; there are limited times that we really can have everything about us."
Primarily a specialty salon and spa for young girls, Sweet & Sassy offers girl-size treatments in a fun, vibrant setting. The Glittery Glam Express package (good for one girl) delivers a party updo, fingernail polish, and makeup application in the span of 15–20 minutes. Little dames get an uplifting updo, chosen from four options, that further enhances follicles. Children can accentuate their mother's eyes and their father's fingers with makeup and nail polish available in a variety of colors and designs. Once the makeover is complete, girls can strut the catwalk, capture their new look with a picture, and draw each other using charcoal briquettes for pens and sheets of plywood for paper.
The stylists at Method Hair Studio share 30 years of industry experience, which they put to use during cutting, coloring, and chemical treatments. They’ll craft everything from cutting-edge to classical cuts and then accentuate the new hairdo with professional highlights or color. On top of keratin treatments and updos, they also offer ear piercing and makeup services.
Barbie's signature long locks were never safe around Samantha Serie who knew at a very young age that she was destined to be a hairstylist. For the past 25 years, Samantha has been realizing that destiny, helping clients achieve their desired hairdo from classic cuts to fashion-forward trends.
Inside her private suite at the contemporary Firewheel Salons in the Firewheel Town Center Mall, Samantha starts each visit with a thorough consultation, listening to clients’ concerns and goals but also their fears about monsters that will crimp their hair while they sleep. Samantha feels as a stylist that it is her job to help clients "break the…molds that become their hair." She does this with color corrections, barber-style clipper cuts, and foil highlights. She also regularly attends continuing education courses to keep her skills fresh and is happy to recommend other technicians if she cannot personally perform a specific treatment requested.
