Guests who come inside any of Malibu Tan’s many locations are greeted with a handshake. Though that might seem like an old-school approach to customer service, Malibu Tan’s owner encourages it as a genuine way for his staff to connect with each client and provide them with customized services. For more than 15 years, Malibu’s friendly staffers have also connected with higher-profile clients—including the Houston Dymano Girls team—by helping them choose the best of each facility’s tanning options for their skin types. With UV tanning, regardless of whether a client prefers a supine or standup system, they are bound to get a strong tan, as all UV bulbs are changed 200 hours before they hit capacity or finally crack open and release a butterfly. There are also plenty of UV-free options such as VersaSpa sunless tanning, which darkens exteriors with a hydrating DHA-based solution. Each location also offers tan-enhancing products from Designer Skin and California Tan.
The minimalistic design at Salon JB—think cream-hued ceiling, walls, and flooring surrounding a single line of modern black salon chairs—allows the stylists’ hair creations to really stand out. They cut hair into sleek bobs or face-framing layers. Their stash of hair dye adds golden highlights to manes or camouflages locks before camping trips. They also straighten frizzy hair and add instant length with extensions.
With 20 years of collective experience and a selection of all-organic haircare products, the stylists at Tomball Beauty Salon keep clients looking fresh and well coiffed. They offer haircutting services for men and women, as well as conditioning treatments, styling, and coloring.
Inside the luxurious, private suites of Luxe Avenue Salons, massage therapists from Urban Body Balance battle tension, anxiety, and fatigue with nothing more than thumbs. A good number of owner Danielle Steiner's clients come in for Swedish massages, but she's also able to blend techniques from other modalities to customize sessions. Another one of Danielle's signature treatments is the hot towel foot treatment. To start, she scrubs down feet to relax muscles and remove callouses. Then, she massages a restorative cream into the skin while slowly wrapping feet in hot towels. After treatments, feet feel so soft they no longer beg to be soaked in chocolate pudding.
