At Naked Body + Bath, customers can pour the bath product of their choice into big brass tubs of warm water before slowly submerging their feet into a fragrant bath. These complimentary foot soaks—lauded by KHOU-11 as “heaven”—are one of many ways Naked Body + Bath empowers customers to experiment with the store’s selection of all-natural, customizable bath products.
To find ideal skin serum, customers begin by perusing a selection of unscented bath soaps, creams, salts, and lotions that are free of parabens and other chemicals. They then can dress them up with more than 200 fragrant oils, botanicals, milks, and glitters. Staffers allow customers to sample every product in-store and provide wells of already-concocted recipes to help spark ideas. Should customers mix a masterpiece, the staff record recipes and keep them on file to recreate at the customer’s bidding.
Owner Mythili Muktevi truly believes the maxim that beauty starts from within. To this end, she focuses not only on fulfilling the beautification needs of her clients but on enveloping them in a welcoming, self-affirming environment. She and her talented team utilize a range of facials to quell troubles on a variety of skin types, infusing treatments with herbs, fruits, and plants that encourage glowing complexions and invigorate mental activity. Within the beauty haven’s salon area, stylists renovate lackluster locks with women’s and men’s haircuts and opt for relaxers and perms to transform the texture of manes. Additionally, waxing and threading sessions sweep away unwanted hairs, and henna services utilize a temporary dye to ink intricate designs along the body, eliminating the need to put a pet squid through art school.
Houston Wellness Boutique is decorated with numerous butterflies, and there's a reason for that. "When my clients walk in the door, they feel like a caterpillar," says owner Terry Tribble. "When they walk out, I want them to feel like a butterfly." She and her staff achieve this transformation with a selection of slimming body wraps that use a special solution to draw out toxins and help promote circulation. The treatments begin with dry brushing, a relaxing service that exfoliates dead skin cells to help the solution penetrate deeper into the body. Clients can achieve even greater results with an additional infrared-sauna session. Houston Wellness Boutique also specializes in pampering cancer patients by providing permanent makeup services, post-mastectomy products, and fashionable wigs.

Roosters Men's Grooming Center provides stylish haircuts within the conversational environment that once thrived in traditional barbershops. With Roosters' full-service club cut, clients enjoy a professional haircut, a neck trim, a head-massaging rinse and style, and, like a cherry on top of their well-groomed face sundaes, a dash of aftershave. The old-fashion, full-facial shave softens skin with hot-steam towels, a deep-cleansing facial massage, and moisturizing lotions before a close shave shears away stubble. Burly football players and Chewbacca impersonators will find plenty of room inside Roosters' plush leather chairs. Clients can relax during the service by chatting with one of Roosters' stylists or by staring at the store's traditional barbershop pole until they can't remember their middle names.
