Once upon a time, women clustered in "beauty parlors" on a weekly basis. Nowadays, there is little time for this important ritual. One of the few places that seeks to revive those days is Venus Hair, where you are encouraged to linger even after your hair is done. The tiny, cash-only shop is owned and operated by the Susan Romeo and Susan Venus, who also create a lot of the hairstyles worn to Houston's wacky annual Hair Ball. No matter what type of hairstyle you are aiming for, they can achieve it. Beauty parlors like this are as rare as the antiques in the nearby shops.
When you step into Bella Rinova Salon & Day Spa, it is almost like stepping into a different part of the world. Pristine white rooms with French provincial furnishings set the mood for total relaxation. Treat yourself to a total body wrap with seaweed purification or an herbal exfoliation. The normal hair, nail and styling services will be expertly handled by one of the experienced, knowledgeable and friendly staff members. You will walk out with a smile and a spring in your step.
Reedy Japanese music fills the air in a relaxing atmosphere set with gauze curtains, rock gardens and grass matting. Special rejuvenating services include manicures, pedicures and hair styling. Many of the ancient herbal sciences of the Orient are practiced with amazing results. Enjoy a seaweed wrap, an aromatherapy wrap, a massage with warm stones, or take advantage of a service called the Bindi Body, where damp herbs are applied to the skin, dried under a heat lamp and then removed with a friction massage and scented oil.
