The technicians at Envogue Spa & Salon accentuate epidermises with traditional salon and spa services as well as medical-grade skincare. They dote on prized locks with haircuts, styling, and highlights, and banish unwanted fuzz via threading and waxing services using natural azulene cream wax. Their facials heal and brighten complexions to better attract the attention of jumbotron operators. For more stubborn imperfections, clinical skin treatments promise a respite from warts and skin tags using radioactive therapy and cryotherapy.
The seasoned stylists at Yolanda's Hair Studio make over hair from roots to tips with high-fashion cuts and other hair services for men and women. A thorough sudsing scrubs away oils and other nonrenewable resources, reviving hair's natural bounce and swing before stylists trim ends and shape layers into a face-framing mane. Tress-tamers may also add hues to hewn 'dos with a choice of single-process color or highlights and lowlights, resaturating pesky roots or imparting multi-dimensional shine in eye-catching shades. A blow-dry styling then fixes domes with sharper elegance than a tuxedoed princess.
Despite her youth, Farah—owner and main cosmetologist of The Waxing Boutique—has built up an impressive resume. After graduating from Paul Mitchell The School Houston, she spent some time primping models for notable runway appearances and fashion shoots, including Houston Fashion Week, the Danny Nguyen Show, and the Alice in Wonderland Fashion Show. While working on those high-profile projects, she sorted out her true cosmetological calling and started leveling up her expertise in waxing.
Pouring that same meticulousness into her waxing has paid off, particularly in the form of one staggering promise: painless Brazilian wax.
The numbing cream helps, but Farah realizes that it's the anxiety—not the actual waxing—that trips most folks up. To that end, she deploys impeccable bedside manner, a little charm, and loads of professionalism. She even puts harried minds at ease with a hyper-hygienic "never double dip" policy. Add hot towels to open and relax pores, and the guarantee that the whole show'll be over within 15 minutes, and you start to get an idea of why Farah uses words like "pampering" when she talks about waxing.
She uses creme and soft wax with equal adeptness, clearing underarms of hair or sculpting eyebrows into delicate arches. After all, she started her waxing career as an arch expert. And as a Paul Mitchell cosmetology graduate, she keeps a slew of tricks up her sleeve. Folks can pop in for haircuts, color and highlights, and makeup applications, and if they want to learn from her experience, they can take a 30-minute mini-course on how to recreate the look at home.

Tell us about your business.
This is a studio suite geared for clients that like privacy and a professional atmosphere.
What is one of your signature services? How is it performed?
One of my signature services is styling hair. I can look at a picture and make the style look picture-perfect.
What?s your favorite part about your job?
My favorite part about my job is getting that reaction of satisfaction.
What steps do you take to make your clients feel at ease?
I listen carefully and answer questions they have appropriately. I also schedule around my clients, meaning I don't have certain days or hours for my clients. That's an exception to most stylists' rules.

Originally an interior designer and color coordinator, Nisha realized she was meant to design hair when her cousin's makeup artist fell ill the day of her wedding and Nisha stepped in to save the day. She already had the fundamentals??her interior design experience taught her to listen to the client, visualize the whole picture, and customize. It's now 20 years since that wedding and Nisha's still at it at Nisha's Salon. She's hand picked a team of aestheticians and stylists, and together they design and color hair in a way that embellishes each client's individual features such as the shape of their face and the color of their eyes. They also offer facials, waxing, and makeup.
