Must-Have Speed Dial Style Picks
This is a list of local experts who can make your day! They have special niches that make them stand out from the crowd, and I personally use them all on a regular basis. Put them on your speed dial and share with your friends. They’ll thank you for it!
Embellish Nails Boutique. I’ve seen Earl Campbell get pampered in here, and women love it enough to gather for mimosa parties. What makes this a speed dial spot is their new CND nail shellacs. They dry so fast that your hand rub comes *after* the polish, and your nails gain weapons-grade strength (my nails slashed through a styrofoam cup gushing soda everywhere after my first shallac-icure). The Triangle 512.452.7465, Westlake 512.328.9898.
Westlake Skin Care. Anna Hyde is a professional esthetician with a special talent for body waxing. From a quick and [as painless as it gets] brazilian to a full back wax for that teddy bear guy, she can do it. High Profilers love her because her office is private (she’s a one woman operation) in a quiet complex. We all love her because she’s fast and friendly. Ask about her skin care services while you’re there. 512.797.5238
Kiss N’ Makeup. I’ve never known the power of a good eye brow shaping until Karen and Tiffany came along. After my first visit, friends said I looked years younger, but couldn’t put their finger on what changed. That’s better than plastic surgery any day. Their makeup artistry is also world class. 512.388.1150
Kendra Scott Jewelry. Why is a jewelry designer on speed dial? Because you can custom design jewelry on the fly at the in-store “Color Bar.” Last-minute gift, anyone? They also host private parties, so call and reserve for any occasion. Though she’s a national design star, we’re fortunate to now have the Kendra Scott flagship store on South Congress. 512.499.8400
Texas Custom Boots. The name just doesn’t cover it all. This is *the* stop for not only creating or rehabbing cowboy boots, but also for sprucing up any collectable or worn footwear and baggage. Owner Noel Escobar and his master boot makers are no strangers to celebrities (check out the wall filled with autographs). Clients trust vintage Louis Vitton trunks and Versace gold and diamond stilettos in their hands. 512-442-0926
Turtle Dragon. Got allergies? Aches? Pains? PMS? James & Alan are gifted Chinese medicine gurus who can cure what ails you. From acupuncture and cupping to medicinal teas, you’ll get a treatment that cures instead of masks the problem. Some insurance providers will cover the visit! 512.452.1410
Thea Wood, Personal Stylist. Of course, I’m on the list! Men and women call me to help them through tough life transitions that require a new Signature Style or to help find love online with a Matchmaker Makeover. Going for the “best dressed” award at that special event? I’m here to help no matter what your style needs. 512.217.9869
