The student aestheticians and stylists at Vogue College treat tresses and pamper visages under the supervision of experienced instructors. More than 50,000 students have graduated from Vogue College, each learning to perform the treatments that form Vogue College's sizeable slate of salon services. Beauty-seekers can mix and match services with a shampoo, blow-dry, and curling-iron treatment ($10+) plus a bikini wax ($20+) and a spa manicure ($10), or focus solely on sloughing off dead skin cells by indulging in a microdermabrasion treatment ($35). A pedicure ($12), basic manicure ($7), plain facial ($10), and an eyebrow wax ($7) touch up all extremities, leaving the shorelines of the body in pristine condition.
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.
At Beauty by Brazil, Brazilian wax doesn't just refer to a style of waxing. It also refers to the wax itself, which is imported from the South American country and includes its trademark natural ingredients and sensitive-skin formula. Of course, services range far beyond hair removal. Aestheticians also apply the complex formulas of glycolic and enzyme chemical peels to erase wrinkles and blemishes, or they perform multistep European facials to hydrate and cleanse the skin. Clients can even schedule professional makeup applications, either at the salon itself or on location.
Estrella Massage Therapy's Estrella Ortega trained at the Academy for Massage Therapy Training. There, she cultivated her skills in Swedish, deep-tissue, trigger-point, and prenatal modalities. She also performs spa treatments such as mud and paraffin masks, and hot-stone treatments for feet and hands?which, since everything's bigger in Texas, are actually hot-bolder treatments.
The staff at Mediterranean Day Spa knows that true beauty comes from this inside, a notion they honor by providing therapeutic services to local military veterans and their families via Operation Oasis. Within the spa?s luxurious confines, both service members and civilians let their eyes drink in the soothing sights of nature-inspired artwork on natural walls before selecting from the spa?s eclectic service menu. Plush, leather pedicure chairs foster an array of invigorating foot treatments while private treatment rooms host massages, wraps, waxing, and body scrubs that reflect the tradition of Turkish hammams.
A full-service beautification destination, Fernanda's Salon houses a staff that's always ready to restore or reinvent styles. Stylists usually take center stage, and with good reason; their wide range of hair services includes everything from basic haircuts to extensive braiding and coloring services that give locks a much-needed costume change. In addition to making hair work its hardest, staffers also rid bods of fuzz that's wandered too far from its homeland; the shop's body-waxing services defoliate physiques from face to leg with the help of Italian products. Skincare forms the final point in the salon's trifecta, with aestheticians cleansing faces with peels, microdermabrasion, and one of five customizable facials.
