At locations in Colleyville and Watauga, Universal Threading Salon & Spa's technicians twist lengths of cotton thread to pull out unwanted facial hair from the root. Threading isn't the only beauty technique borrowed from ancient Eastern traditions: they decorate visitors' hands with the intricate, lacy henna designs known as mehndi. Along with dressing up arms, they relax hands by rendering stress-melting massages or slowly easing your grip off the jackhammer. Microdermabrasion and Dermalogica facials further underscore the spa's dedication to smooth, glowing skin, which can complement the application of lash extensions or permanent makeup.
The technicians at Lash Out Loud believe that the body's smallest curves can radiate the most personality. They adhere mink and synthetic extensions to natural lashes, adding flattering length to lids and filling in gaps with "relash" appointments. Techs also complement facial features with permanent makeup; their expertly stenciled brows and eyeliner frame peepers, and lip color avoids embarrassing smudges caused by sweat or attempts at kissing your own reflection on the cheek. Each service is customized to the aesthetic preferences of the client, whether she hopes to make her morning routine more convenient or avoid allergy symptoms caused by traditional products.
The Lash Lounge's founder Anna Phillips—an advanced certified eyelash-extension trainer—once traveled the nation to impart the art of semipermanent eyelash application to scores of fellow lash artists. Now, at all of Lash Lounge's locations, such artists work to ensure that every guest returns to their day-to-day activities batting fuller, darker lashes. They meticulously apply each synthetic strand to a natural lash with medical-grade glue, imbuing peepers with a customized, natural look that can last up to two months with proper care. Applying lashes of varying lengths, thicknesses, and degrees of curl, they have earned the praise of publications including Allure magazine and Women's Wear Daily.
They also strive to eliminate lengthy daily makeup applications with permanent-makeup services. After a complimentary consultation, a staff of licensed aestheticians and permanent-makeup artists precisely applies permanent eyeliner, lip color, or third eyebrows. For those who prefer makeup that washes off, Anna has concocted her own line of mineral cosmetics, brushes, and primers.
Under the shadow of Texas Christian University, the nail techs at Blue House Salon adorn talons with designs featuring the school's colors and letters. While hands and feet are primped with glittery designs, hairstylists sculpt tresses with cuts, color, and updos. They also apply hair extensions, fusing them to natural tresses with heat or sewing them into the felt that connects your hair to your skull.
Centuries-old threading techniques combine with cutting-edge makeup to perfect faces at Just Stringz. GloMinerals makeup uses all-natural ingredients to cover faces with subtle and dramatic looks. The staff uses Dermalogica products to calm acne and smooth fine lines, and tints eyebrows to match a hair color or favorite football team?s colors.
Whether you're meeting someone's gaze from across the room, making eye contact for the first time with an interviewer, or window shopping for souls, the eyes are at the center of it all. Haute Lash and Boutique's aestheticians specialize in making sure those moments go off without a hitch. They meticulously extend lashes one strand at a time, and they tint and even perm natural lashes and eyebrows to your exact shape and color specs. The aestheticians keep some tricks up their sleeve for the rest of the face as well. Air brushing services even out skin tone, accentuate faces with bold streaks of color, or get clients ready for a girls' night out. While they're waiting, guests can add a little sartorial flare to the mix with the boutique's selection of carefully curated clothes and accessories.
