Summer can be a busy time of year with many of us finding ourselves juggling wedding invites, vacation planning and social engagements. But taking a little time out for some pampering just may help you tackle that calendar with renewed confidence. Luckily, The Woodlands is full of true beauty retreats.
It’s easy to look and feel your best in The Woodlands, with a selection of beauty gurus ready to take care of you. Whether you are new to the area or looking to try something different, here are some luxurious salons and studios you should know.
These are The Woodlands’ Best Beauty Retreats:
The Beauty Lounge
Living Magazine voted The Beauty Lounge the No. 1 salon in The Woodlands in 2020, 2021 and 2022. It is a one-stop-shop for all things beauty. There are now two chic locations (The Woodlands and Conroe) offering a range of services including hair, brows, skincare and aesthetic treatments.
Finding the right hair salon can be tricky, but not here. Whether it’s a color transformation or hair extensions, the artists at this salon are highly trained by owner and educator Rachel Paige, an extensions guru. For natural looking, long locks, these hand-tied extensions are carefully selected to match your hair’s natural base color.
For regular clients, The Beauty Lounge offers a Babe Club Monthly Membership, which starts at $99 per month and includes a birthday blowout, makeup touch ups and haircare treatments.
Signature Service: Bespoke hand-tied hair extensions.
One of the newest salon openings in The Woodlands, Sugaring NYC offers an organic solution to hair removal.
Sugaring is an innovative technique which involves removing hair with a sugar paste, made from purified water and lemon juice with zero nasty chemicals. It gets rid of hair in a gentler way than regular waxing. Regular clients say it is perfect for those with sensitive skin and the results are supposed to last longer too.
The studio also offers Keratin lash lift and brow lamination treatments.
Sugaring NYC is currently offering a 50-percent-off deal for first timers.
Signature Service: Organic hair removal.
Another fabulous option for creative hair services is Waterway Avenue’s industrial chic-inspired salon dubbed Parlor In The Woods.
Offering multi-dimensional color from a group of talented stylists, this hair salon offers balayage, creative color and highlights. Beside the array of positive reviews from clients, Parlor in The Woods’ Instagram page shows off the stylists’ work to great effect.
This is a Woodlands beauty retreat perfect for both subtle changes and bold transformations.
Signature Service: Creative color, highlights and cuts.
Follow the No. 1 rule of skincare and choose a spray tan over hours baking in the sun and putting your health at risk.
Glo Sun Spa in The Woodlands uses a unique formula for its spray tans, allowing your skin to stay moisturized with a long-lasting, glowing natural tan and a fresh clean scent. Fun fact: This is the tanning salon used by the Houston Texans’ cheerleaders.
It’s not just tanning services at Glo Sun Spa either. This luxurious spot also offers Hydrafacials, cryotherapy and CoolSculpting treatments.
Regular self-tanners can pay monthly, with packages starting at $59 per month.
Signature Service: Natural looking spray tans.
Avoid the hassle of getting ready at home before your next big event. Swap your bedroom for an appointment at Drybar’s handy location on Market Street instead.
Whether it’s a glamorous night out or an important business meeting, it’s easy to leave your look in the capable hands of Drybar’s hair stylists. Swing by for a 45-minute blowout with several trendy styles to choose from, including sleek and smooth, messy beach waves or red-carpet ready Hollywood curls.
There are several packages available, including three blowouts for $150 or six for $295.
Signature Service: Hair styling and blowouts.

Lopez also offers training courses in the art of microblading. So you know you’re in the hands of a real expert.
