Balancing Energy Health & Yoga Center
1444 Oak Lawn Ave., Ste. 319, Design District
Lisa Breitenwischer opened her yoga studio in 2012. There, she teaches highly individualized classes and runs a program of personalized holistic treatments and nutritional counseling. Among the treatments available at her intimate studio is a new IR sauna, which is gratifying before or after a yoga class. (It's also relatively affordable here.)
4218 Oak Lawn Ave., Highland Park
A cheery space that resembles a blowout bar (champagne pours are always on offer), this is the place you come to get ready for drinks, dinner, a wedding, you name it. On the menu: a full makeup application, brow touch-ups, fake-lash application, a twenty-minute Tata Harper facial. It's great for groups if you're traveling with a pack. They make house calls, too.
4514 Travis St.,
This super challenging Pilates studio offers cutting-edge classes to tone strong, lean muscles. The fifty-minute classes incorporate reformer work, the chair, and a restorative stretch-and-release class that’s designed to work on tight fascia and increase flexibility and mobility.
Cherry is an on-demand platform that offers classic and gel manicures and pedicures throughout Dallas. It’s the brainchild of three Texans, Bumble’s Whitney Wolfe Herd and rewardStyle’s Amber Venz Box and Baxter Box. Services are waterless, and technicians come armed with ten popular Essie shades, though you’re welcome to provide your own. (Basic treatments start at $15.) Everything, from the choice of service to the location and tip, is handled through Cherry’s user-friendly app.
Dear Clark Hair Studio
3317 McKinney Ave., Suite 101, Uptown
Holly Dear and Kaycee Clark’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.
Dr. Martin Kassir
8335 Walnut Hill Ln., Vickery Meadow
This is a real-deal dermatologist office that just happens to offer cosmetic procedures. This means that Dr. Kassir and his staff are pros at pinpointing and treating skin-related ailments while also offering patients some pretty intense anti-aging treatments: traditional, extraction-focused facials, microdermabrasion, and DermaFrac (sounds scary, but it’s actually a supper effective). You can expect some downtime after most treatments, but it's kind of worth it considering the results are no joke.
Hotel Crescent Court Spa
400 Crescent Ct., Uptown, Dallas, TX
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).
2410 Victory Park Lane, Design District, Dallas, TX
Dallas friends swear they’ve experienced the best facials of their lives at the hands of Joanna Czech, who incorporates LED therapy into her treatments. After studying biology in Poland, she made a name for herself in NYC before setting up shop in Dallas in 2012. Instead of selecting a treatment from a menu, your aesthetician analyzes your skin, discusses goals with you (which could be anything from treating sun damage to glowier skin for an event that evening), and then gets to work. Every facial focuses on treating and supporting the lipid (top) layer of skin, and you can add on microcurrent, hyaluronic acid patches, oxygen infusion, microneedling, and more as you need. Some of our favorite clean lines are used in many of the facials, including Dr. Barbara Sturm, Grown Alchemist, and Vintner’s Daughter.
Lake Austin Spa Resort
1705 S. Quinlan Park Rd., Lake Austin
Just thirty minutes from downtown on a particularly spectacular bend in the river, Lake Austin is as amazing a day spa as it is an overnight retreat. Either way, you can use all spa facilities, the restaurant (many ingredients come from an on-site organic garden) and participate in daily fitness activities from water yoga in the stunning, barn-enclosed warm pool, paddle boarding, and hikes to river-based workouts). There are more than 100 services on the extensive mind- and body-nourishing spa menu—everything from standard Swedish to Chinese-medical cupping treatments—with specific options for mothers-to-be, couples, and groups. The facials are particularly incredible: herbal enzyme peels, fractionated laser treatments, and luminizing vitamin C therapies, plus specific options for mothers-to-be, couples, and groups. Post-treatment, you can lounge by the series of swimming pools in the large hillside garden.
LOVE Cycling Studio
507 Pressler, Clarksville
LOVE's bread and butter is a 45-minute spin class—there's one aimed at beginners and another for more experienced riders. They also have a family class (ages twelve and up). Classes end with the popular, cooling, eucalyptus-spritzed face towel.
