eauty SPOTS GROOMING JOINTS EVERYONE'S DOING IT — GETTING GORGEOUS AND BUFFED, THAT IS. WITH SUMMER IN OUR SIGHTS, BARE BODIES AND BEAUTIFUL SUNSETS ARE JUST A BLINK AWAY. WE ASKED SOME OF THE CHICEST PEOPLE WE KNOW WHERE THEY GO AND WHOM THEY SEE TO GET SUMMER- READY, FOR EVERYTHING FROM BOTOX TO BEARD CONDITIONING. FRANCINE BALLARD COLLAGE BY JENNY ANTILL CLIFTON Melissa Juneau Stylish hostess and mom Acupuncture: Sadna at Eastern Harmony Acupuncture & Herbal Clinic. Exotic body treatment: The Trellis' Diamond Rose scrub/massage. Very cool. In-home makeup/tan/threading: Renee Gonzales. In-home massage: Esli Narvaez — awesome. Beauty secret: I've been getting a once-a-month peel and some sort of light therapy to firm my neck with Tammy at Dr. Ciaravino's office. Teeth whitening: Dentiq. Cathy Echols Interior designer Facials: Crina at the Houstonian does any and all types of waxing, plus facials. She works head to almost toe. Mani/pedi: River Oaks Nails. Trish for manicures, Holly for pedicures. Straightforward, easily available, and they always do a great job. Massage therapy: Lloyd Adams. He does a very interactive-type massage — a craniosacral massage, which is a form of body work or alternative therapy that focuses on primary respiration and regulating the flow of cerebral spinal fluid through therapeutic touch to manipulate the synarthrodial joints of the cranium, which is very effective in conjunction with any yoga practice. Nutrition: I do a lot of yoga and eat in a thoughtful manner — which includes French fries and wine. Hormone replacement: Houston Hormone Clinic for bio-identical hormone pellets. Micro-needling and Ultherapy: Flawless Skin Medical Spa for collagen replacement,resurfacing and tighter skin. Alternative medicine: Dr. Sones on Fannin opens up energy channels in your body. Martha Finger Interior designer and raven-haired arts supporter Lash extensions: Ets Lash Studio. Facial: Glow Medical Aesthetics. Nancy Amy and Hilary are such beautiful women. Everybody that goes into Glow just wants to have flawless skin. I walk in and say, "I want whatever treatment you're doing!" I always buy the products those two are using. And the atmosphere is fun and cheerful — even with all the needles and lasers! FotoFacial: Hilary at Glow Medical Aesthetics. Mani/pedi: Maggie at Instyle Nails on Alabama. Beauty secret: Hanskin Collagen Hydrogel Mask. I swear by it. Massage: Thai Massage on Bissonnet; ask for the owner, Lettie. Skin treatments: Hilary at Glow for Ultherapy, Clear and Brilliant, chemical peels. Cosmetic procedures: Dr. Amy Woehrmann at Glow Medical Aesthetics for filler, Sculptra, Voluma. And Dr. Lisa Santos there for Botox. Who wouldn't love her? She does the most natural work … she makes you look fresh, never frozen. And her wit, charm and style are over the top and put you at ease. Fraxel laser: Dr. Paul Friedman. Laser hair removal: Glow Medical Aesthetics. Acupuncture: Dr. Peng on Bissonnet. She gives me herbs for healthy hair/hair loss… an ancient Chinese secret! Holistic treatment: Yoga and herbs from Dr. Peng. Greggory Burk Philanthropist and chair mom I am a huge fan and long-time client of Persona Medical Spa. Owner Kathi Jones keeps things fresh with new beauty treatments introduced regularly. Alison Ali, Kristen Hunt and Deirdre Owen are a girl's dream team. I've followed their advice for over a decade. FotoFacials, microdermabrasion, peels, eyebrow shaping and massage are all on my steady list of regimens, but I can't wait to try the Micro- Infusion facial. Persona is an amazing one-stop shop for skin care. Hip Fitness is the most challenging workout around! Owner Lubna Kamal is one tough instructor, but she keeps things fun with her constant praise, fantastic music and the giant countdown clock on the wall. Spend 45 minutes with Lubna in her high-intensity Pilates class, and your body will thank you! Elizabeth Young Interior designer and art appreciator Sabina at Chrysalis is the best ever for facials and peels, as well as all the amazing products she recommends. I also swear by mindful meditation. It's pretty incredible, and I'm certainly trying to live a mindful life! (Amber Bernhardt, Ally Shell-van Koolwijk Co-owner, Neal Hamil Modeling Agency and (very young) wise-cracking mother of two Eyebrow waxing/grooming: Threading, Aisha's Salon and Spa on Hillcroft or the Westheimer location. Teeth whitening: I can't. You have to wait 72 hours to drink red wine, and I can't give that up. When I do, Dr. Mike Bahramipour. Lash extensions/dyeing: Flirty Eyez by the beautiful Clanay Wheeler. Blowout/color/cut: DryBar and David at Attitudes. (He's done beautiful blowouts on me since 1994.) Cosmetic procedures: I'm too young. Facials: Dharma Skin Spa. Mani/pedi: First Nails Boutique. Their 15-minute shoulder massage with the mani is sometimes life-saving. Fave products: Tony Moly Intense Care Snail Cream Moisturizer, imported from Korea; Too Faced Better Than Sex mascara; Hourglass Chubby Stick for lips; baby wipes. I use them for everything. They can almost change a tire they're so handy. Neal Hamil Agency tinted moister in natural glow; By Terry lip gloss and balm. Bill Arning Bearded executive director, Contemporary Arts Museum Houston I have several haircutters and stylists I have seen since moving to Houston, but I seem to have settled on Dominic at Argyle League. The atmosphere is hyper- masculine and very rock 'n' roll. The guy next to me a couple weeks ago was having a shot and a beer at 10 am on a Saturday, and the music is always loud guitar- driven rock. I always feel a little too femme and under- tattooed in the chair. But as someone who has had a beard since 1994, I am no stranger to timid barbers who think they are trimming a poodle when working on my beard. Dominic always asks what I want from my beard; sometimes I want to look demonic, and other times I want to be more professorial. Also, as a late-in-life driver, I love any business that is walking distance from my house, and Argyle League clocks in at three blocks. Gail Rubin Co-owner, Studio Communications, keeps luxe clients on-message I live for Janneth at Persona Day Spa, who does my FotoFacials. Also Cabe at Craft is critical for hair. And I think Montrose Nail (same strip center as Canopy) gives the best mani/pedi in town — also the best if you want to do shellac on your nails. Lee Ellis Beard-sporting owner of BRC Gastropub, Belvedere, Liberty Kitchen & Oyster Bar, Liberty Kitchen & Oysterette and Petite Sweets, Houston Haircut: Cutthroat on Washington and Brandi Rocks. Shave/beard trim: No one touches the beard. Mani/pedi: My wife. Facials: Don't do facials. More about conditioning the beard. Massage: Thai Massage (near Liberty Kitchen & Oysterette). Cosmetic procedures: Zero. Waxing: No need. I had a complete shave for open- heart surgery. Laser hair removal: Refer to previous question. Nutritionist: Triple bypass, great way to lose weight. Holistic treatments: None. Acupuncture: Dr. Grose. Spray tanning: I have a fabulous tan. Teeth whitening: I use bleach on my laundry. Exotic treatments: The love handler, a vacuum is used. Lindley Arnoldy New mom, charity chair, gorgeous girl about town I love to go to the infrared sauna to sweat out deep, deep toxins. The only one I have found in the city is at Sanctuary D'Sante on Shepherd. I go in for 30 to 45 minutes and come out with a feeling close to a runner's high. It's supposed to be a powerful cancer-fighting agent — it also happens to be a pretty great cure for one too many chardonnays. I burn anywhere from 800 to 1,500 calories on one session. The best! Jay Fields President, J.D. Fields & Co., couplet with Allie Fields Massage: Thai Massage ( Beauty secret: All Kiehl's products — literally, from their grapefruit or Love Potion cologne, shaving cream, face wash and facial fuel. Haircut: Gina Ortiz at Tranquility Salon & Day Spa. Allie Fields It-girl, charity chair, couplet with Jay Fields Spray tanning: Chloe at Spray Tan in Ten Organic Spa. If you can't tone it, tan it! Massage: At the same place as Jay. It can truly be the opposite of relaxing, but I find it necessary for us both,
