At Bath Junkie, shopping is an interactive experience. Upon entering the store, clients peruse bath products, including scrubs and lotions, and pick a base. Then they can browse through more than 200 scents, identifying one, two, or three fragrances and a color for their product. With the client's personalized recipe in hand, a beauty expert whips up the formula and readies it for sale. Each product is crafted to minimize harm to the environment, and Bath Junkie offers paraben-free hair products, recyclable containers, and kisses on both cheeks from Mother Nature herself.
At age 5, Alejandro Gonzalez loved to play with scissors. His two older sisters—cosmetology students—kept a store of styling gear around the house that proved far more fascinating to his budding brain than any toys. That fascination persisted through his formative years and eventually turned into his life's calling. Today, Alejandro doles out cuts, coloring, and texturizing services with an enthusiasm that extends back to his childhood.
His cozy two-chair salon doesn't have room for styling assistants, and that's OK by Alejandro, since he insists on performing every step in the styling process himself, from shampooing to cutting to texturizing. For him, designing a new style means more than updating a look; it's an artistic vision. He wouldn't want another stylist finishing a haircut he started any more than a sculptor would want his apprentice finishing a statue by breaking off both of its arms.
Taking full ownership over his work, Alejandro wants hair to look good now as well as later. To accomplish this, he seeks out professional products that protect against dryness and damage. Lakmé and Pravana color infuses hair with vibrant hues and enriching soy ingredients.
The stylists at Shear Heaven Salon don't view their dos as occasional indulgences but as an essential part of long-term haircare. Therefore, they concern themselves with both in-salon services and the time between them, supplying clients with a wealth of merchandise and aftercare tips. These guidelines help preserve the meticulous cuts and colors that occur at their stations. The staff members readily take on texturizing challenges—they're certified to smooth away frizz with Brazilian Blowout formulas, and their beach-wave perms capture a tousled look that doesn't involve a full day of somersaulting. Brands such as Aloxxi, Global Keratin, Macadamia, and Surface assist in crafting updated looks, and Babe extensions elongate natural locks.
Shear Heaven's new location inside Karizma Threading Salon also showcases a barbershop menu. On Monday and Wednesday, licensed barber Miguel Gomez trims hair, thwarts stubble with a straight razor, and soothes cheeks with hot towels.
As a little girl in Miami, Fabiana March would watch in awe as her mother––a 30-year veteran of the beauty industry––combed, curled, and coifed simple strands into stunning works of art. Unable to deny her passion for hair in any language––she's fluent in English, Portuguese, and Spanish––Fabiana instead decided to embrace her innate talent and follow in her mother's footsteps, a path that would ultimately lead her to Dallas and a gig inside the Aveda-focused State-Thomas Salon. There, she helps heads find the dimensional shine or texture they've always dreamed of with services that range from balayage color to formaldehyde-free Pravana smooth-out treatments. To ensure faces look fresh from top to chin, she also offers waxing for the eyebrows and upper lip and teeth-whitening treatments that help oust stains caused by coffee or a diet rich in grass clippings.
Like any redhead, Jennifer Davis had intimate knowledge of the painful burns that would result when she tried to imbue her fair complexion with a sultry summer glow. Determined to help her fellow Texans achieve a sun-kissed hue without the damaging effects of tanning, Jennifer opened a mobile airbrush-tanning business that has since expanded to multiple salon hubs situated throughout the Dallas metro area.
Using a paraben-free, DHA solution, the salon?s certified airbrush technicians completely envelop frames in a shade tailored to skin tones, leaving a streak-free color that lets patrons avoid the attentions of lovelorn zebras. The tanning solution is applied and dry within 30 minutes, both illuminating bodily hues and covering skin imperfections such as blemishes, cellulite, and stretch marks during its two-week tenure on the skin. The salon also stocks a supply of Norvell products and airbrushing machines, allowing guests to maintain golden skin at home without replacing showerheads with arcade token machines.
