Apothecaries predate modern chemistry and pharmacology by hundreds of years, tracing their tradition of fashioning medicinal compounds from natural ingredients to Baghdad in the 8th century and Chaucer's Canterbury Tales. These skilled practitioners developed proven techniques to heal weary patients with organic balms and soothe hoards of barbarian Gauls with aromatic oils. Located near Lake Ray Hubbard, Affinity Salon & Spa mines these ancient techniques in its own apothecary, custom-making products and reinforcing their mission to guarantee each client "quality services with a personal touch." Winners of a 2010 Talk of the Town award, the staffers dote on every guest with spa and salon services that integrate oils, herbs, and teas to foster a relaxing, organic experience.
At first glance, Niemann Perry Salon looks edgy, its carpet daubed with a graffiti-like black-and-white print and its staffers roaming about styled in neon hair dye and tattoos. But this edgy style simply adds personality and flair to the professional med-spa and salon linked by a partnership to board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. David Martin. Guided by the doctor, the staff performs an extensive list of aesthetic services, including facial peels, laser hair removal, Botox, and other injections. Not to be outdone, hair stylists stock their stations with Keune, L'anza, and Kevin Murphy products, and nail artists slick talons with OPI lacquers and trim cuticles using only their boot spurs.
At Allure by Becky, hairstylist and certified hair loss specialist Becky reinvents drab 'dos with a spectrum of haircare services administered from her suite at Legacy Salon & Day Spa. As a cut and color specialist, Becky draws on an arsenal of Aloxxi, Redkin, Scripts, and Brizilian Blowout products, leveraging such top-shelf serums to create lustrous shine and dimension or to style manes into modern looks. She boasts certifications in Fusion Hair Extensions and Brazilian blowouts, which can swiftly transform unkempt frizzy hair into softer, smoother, and shinier locks that last for months. Though haircare is her specialty, Becky also dolls up clients with professional makeup applications, readying them for a night out on the town or an indoor day of flirting with local-car-salesman commercials.
The setting is a spunky little Hair Junkie salon, where glittery guitars decorate the walls and shiny bottles of hair- and skincare products pack the shelves of rustic wooden bookcases. The leading lady of our story is Dakota Deweese—a skilled skincare specialist with golden hair. She bustles about the brightly lit salon, smoothing wrinkles, banishing blemishes, and rejuvenating skin through comprehensive facial treatments. On some days, she adds volume and glamour to lashes with professional extensions. Dakota is joined by a supporting cast of skilled stylists who snip up new looks, tanning specialists who bronze skin with UV-free spray, and a fairy disguised as a client who graciously grants her three wishes after receiving a particularly relaxing exfoliation treatment.
