Each of Pro-Cuts' more than 150 locations embodies the company's casual, no-frills ethos in its own way. The salon owners cultivate an atmosphere approachable to families and menfolk while sustaining an undercurrent of elegance. The quick-snipping Pro-Cuts stylists specialize in the Pro-Cuts 15-minute haircut, followed by a 10-hour eulogy for sideburns past. While services vary by location, typical offerings include kids cuts, beard trimming, and shampoo service powered by big-name salon brands such as Biolage and American Crew.
Nestled in historical downtown Wylie, Downtown Salon Suites' stained-glass entryway ushers visitors into a full-service spa equipped with the staff and accouterments necessary to pamper its clientele from head to toe. Inside, a modern aesthetic informs skillfully executed haircuts, manicures, and makeup services. The teams of aestheticians and therapists relax clients with soothing massages and harness microcurrent technology to erase signs of aging such as wrinkles or unsightly trunk rings.
Body wraps are inherently pleasant; they help people work towards beauty goals, but they're also warm and comforting. Tonayia Davidson, proprietor of Tonayia's Wax Pot, performs wraps and brow tinting, but also handles waxing, which some people dread. She knows her clients have often had bad experiences when it comes to hair removal. In response, she’s made it goal to give clients a safe haven where they can feel confident they’ll get high quality results delivered by an experienced professional. She also understands it isn't just women and self-conscious shag carpets who need hair removal, which is why she offers the same services to their male clientele.
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.
The staff at Styles of India focuses solely on the art of hair removal to shape brows and remove unwanted fuzz across the entire physique. An ancient technique, threading makes use of pure cotton strands, rolled and lifted along the face and eyebrows to remove hair in a straight line—ideal for eyebrows or sculpting sideburns into the style Benjamin Franklin sported: lightning bolts. The technicians at Styles of India are also adept with wax, removing unwanted hair from legs, arms, and bikini lines.
An artful twist of the thread ensnares the strand, and a quick motion frees it from the follicle. That's all there is to threading, but it takes a careful eye and a precise hand to master this ancient art of hair removal. Luckily, these are both qualities that define the technicians at SOI Brow Threading Salon. Their threading sessions remove hair from the eyebrows as well as the chin, upper lip, and second nose, sloughing away dead skin in the process.
