Sophia Lash Bar owner Madison Meek spends a good part of her day waxing faces, but what she enjoys most is applying eyelash extensions. "I absolutely love full set applications, [and] seeing the excitement on a woman's face after she sees her new set for the first time." Excited, but also meticulous, Madison typically spends 135 minutes with her first-time clients, applying extensions one lash at a time. She can also correct someone else's subpar extension job by filling in gaps or removing misplaced extensions from the client's eyebrows.

Though it hangs outside a cozy cottage, the fleur-de-lis that dangles over Salon Senoj's entryway hints at the ritzy decor inside. Dark, lacquered hardwoods shine as clients explore the waiting area in front of a brick fireplace or head to a styling chair hidden in the secluded back room. There, staffers soothe strands with Redken, MoroccanOil, and Pureology products before they hand them symbolic pink slips and cut them off. The stylists also specialize in accenting beautiful fringes with nail services and eyelash-extension applications.
Tucked away in the Brady Arts District, Chrysalis Salon & Spa’s quaint brick storefront invites visitors into a chic, colorful interior where its team of stylists and aestheticians goes to work. Seated in white leather chairs, clients can relax as a stylist trims or colors locks using botanical-based products from Phyto and premium Goldwell hair color. Spa services range from waxing to facials, including the gold-leaf facial, in which 24-karat gold is applied to the skin to stimulate collagen production and make the client more attractive to Swiss bankers. They are also the go-to providers of makeup services for News On 6 KOTV, the local CBS affiliate. Chrysalis also offers med-spa services performed by the resident doctor, such as Botox, Latisse, and medical-grade microdermabrasion.
At Serenity Aveda Day Spa and Salon, beauty professionals nourish skin and hair with pure flower and plant essences. Aestheticians leverage the power of grape antioxidants and champagne oils during the champagne facial—one of many facial treatments—increasing skin hydration while decreasing the need for regular spumante showers. To give clients a head-to-toe tan without UV exposure, technicians mist the skin with a custom bronzer. Stylists volumize hairdos with hair extensions from Paris, and cosmetic artists replenish lids with thick, long lash extensions. Massages, body treatments, and makeup services round out the menu of options.
Emerge Medical Day Spa combines the relaxation and luxury of a traditional day spa with med-spa treatments that offer significant results. The trained staff offer soothing treatments such as massages and facials, as well as medical services such as vein treatments, medical facial peels, and laser treatments. Before and after treatments, client can lounge in the spa's relaxation room or freshen up in the dressing room, which is furnished with personal lockers and showers featuring relaxing raindrop pressure from real cumulonimbus clouds.
