Star Nails' aestheticians have been pampering locals inside their full-service salon and spa for a decade. Their mani-pedis come with hot-towel treatments and an option for gel color polish from Shellac or OPI. When they're not beautifying digits, they're revivifying complexions during facial treatments, alleviating stress with hot-stone massages, and preempting mascara and dry-erase markers with permanent-makeup applications.
The Trinity Mobile Spa specialists take their wax, bottles of nail polish, and talented hands on the road. They travel to a client’s place of work, home, or vacationing neighbor’s home to dispense beauty services that include European facials, mani-pedis, and aromatherapy massages. They also package together a number of services for spa parties to celebrate an impending marriage, baby, or birthday.
At Aesthetic Salon and Spa, the facials brighten skin with creative ingredients, from hydrating doses of vitamin C to 24-karat gold. The gold is a key ingredient in one of the rejuvenating creams—it lends skin a youthful glow, much like your “darkness light” that’s really just an adult night-light. The glycolic acid in a chemical peel improves tone and texture, and the parafango in a body wrap deals with toxins and cellulite.
Complementing these beauty treatments are various stress-relieving massages, with Swedish, deep-tissue, reflexology, and other modalities available. And on the salon side, you'll find styling and coloring options such as perms, extensions, highlights, and conditioning treatments.
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.
Belfiore Salon & Day Spa is 10,000 square feet of luxury. Virtually every possible beauty, relaxation, and wellness service is available here, from massage therapy and hair removal to Brazilian blowouts, mani-pedis, and permanent cosmetics application. Come in for a chic new haircut and an indulgent body wrap, or have eyelash extensions applied and a laser hair removal treatment administered by a licensed professional. You can even work out—head over to the Elite Fitness Center to use weight-training and cardio machines, or try a small group fitness class. Tired muscles relax in the onsite steam and sauna rooms, leaving visitors feeling relaxed, renewed, and totally pampered.
Owner Janice Reyes and her stylists sculpt hair inside a historic brick building adorned with a mural of pink and periwinkle roses. In addition to cuts, color, and straightening treatments, stylists rearrange hair in sophisticated updos using products by Redken and Pureology. Mani-pedis keep nails looking neat, and massages with face cleansing help keep skin aglow with health. When they aren't cosseting clients, stylists keep the Alante boutique stocked with fun clothing for women of all ages and any number of heads.
