Uptown Health & Beauty
1700 Cedar Springs Rd., Uptown
This studio takes its mantra of “yoga for all” very seriously. There are ten types of classes, at all different levels, as well as options for kids and teens. Some of the best: deep stretching, an energizing vinyasa flow set to rock music, and sculpt classes warmed with an infrared sauna. There’s even a class for families to take together, where kids sing “Row Your Boat” while parents hold the boat pose. (They have several locations throughout the city, including one on Lovers Lane.)
House Of Dear Hair Studio
3317 McKinney Ave., Suite 101, Uptown
Holly Dear’s Uptown hair studio is always packed. Whether you book an appointment with one of the founders (you might have to wait) or one of the other super talented stylists, this is place to go for edgy-but-lived-in cuts and colors. It’s known for natural-looking balayage, but you can also get braids and blowouts at the bar in the back.
Hotel Crescent Court Spa
400 Crescent Ct., Uptown
This sprawling spa complex operates out of the Hotel Crescent Court, so tasteful luxury is a given. With that in mind, a full day is well spent here: They offer private yoga and Pilates classes, a health-centric café, and treatments that range from the basic (manis and pedis) to the intense (hardcore lymphatic-draining treatments). We love that the spa is open to kids, too, with a full menu of kid-friendly treatments (and snacks in the café).
