Maquillage Pro Beauty specializes in organic and heated airbrush tanning, helping bodies go from pallid to sun-kissed without exposure to harmful UV rays. Carefully trained technicians evenly tan hides from head to toe at locations in The Woodlands, Austin, or The Heights, or travel to their clients to help them get beach-bound in the privacy of their own home sandbox. The hue-shifting experts can also draw added attention to bronzed contours with optional add-on treatments such as glow-enhancing glitter drops or scent drops—a more practical alternative to last season's popular scratch-and-sniff body suits.
Aveda Institute graduate Kandice is the brains behind the beautification at ikandi Skin and Lash Studio. Fueled by Image Skincare products, her facial treatments cater to visages, whether they need moisturizing, exfoliating, or smoothing. Fuller eyelashes complement dewy skin after Kandice enhances them with semi-permanent synthetic mink lashes, for a thicker look without brushing on mascara or force-feeding each lash. Conversely, she'll also remove hair where it has outstayed its welcome with waxing sessions.

Believing that beautiful hair can change a person's whole look, stylist Paola Franco performs an array of fashion-forward cuts and rich color services. At A'Foils Design—nested within Sammy's Salon & Spa—she specializes in foiling highlights and lowlights with wax papers, with which she can bring out subtle color in hair that flatters faces and is easier to find when lost in a haystack. Alongside expert salon styling, she provides facial waxing, special occasion up-dos, and Keratin Complex treatments, which gloss frizzy hair into sleek, silky submission. With a huge percentage of Paola's business coming from repeat clients and referrals, this popular hair spot is always bustling, yet Paola is never too busy to take the time to find out exactly what her clients want.
Ambiance Spa and Wellness Centre lavishes men and women with treatments for the entire body that employ both traditional and modern techniques. While one treatment room might house an aesthetician purging pores with irritant-free Dermalogica facials, an aesthetician on the other side of the wall is fading hyperpigmentation with Candela lasers. Meanwhile, seven types of massage invoke the warmth of hot stones or the fragrant notes of aromatherapy to smooth out knotted muscles and summon memories of a past life as a lavender blossom.
