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.
At Another World Day Spa, a cast of beauty professionals and massage therapists collaborate to keep clients looking and feeling their very best. A slew of treatments for the face and body cleanse, rejuvenate, and soften skin to stage off everything from wrinkles and fine lines to acne and dry skin. Once renewed, skin can opt for further smoothing with waxing treatments for the brows, bikini area, and limbs. Licensed massage therapists tend to below-the-surface needs with half a dozen massage treatments, including Swedish, deep-tissue, and hot-stone sessions, as well 15 minutes of Fix It therapy, designed to quickly lessen pain or repair broken internal clocks.
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.
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.
