Two new Dallas salons treat your tips with all-natural, non-toxic goodness, but which do you choose to treat yourself? We break it down.
The beauty is in the details. Pedicure chairs and cabinets were all custom-built by a woodshop in the owner’s hometown of Ennis, Texas. White quartz, vintage furniture, and elegant wallcoverings add to the sophisticated Southern aesthetic.

The salon also offers facials, waxing, and massages featuring all-natural products from McKinney-based FarmHouse Fresh for ladies and Carrollton-based Jack Black lotions for gents.
Set against a wall of salvaged tin from a downtown Dallas building, the vintage shoeshine-inspired pedicure chairs are truly next level. The buttery, light blue fabric keeps things comfortable while a sliding wooden shelf covers the sink, making it easy to maneuver in and out.
Manicures, $25–$55; pedicures, $40–$75

Exposed brick, greenery, and Edison bulbs hanging from the ceiling add warmth, but the farmers market-style display of sweet-smelling handmade bath bombs and sugar scrubs is the first thing you’ll notice when you walk through the door.

This month, the salon is launching an official line for its homemade bath bombs, lotions, and sugar scrubs called Purpose, which will be available for sale in the store and on the website.
For pedicures, guests are given a mini bushel basket and their pick of lotions and scrubs—all made in-house with natural ingredients and ever-changing scents—from rows of wooden crates. For manis, guests slip on fingerless anti-aging collagen gloves for mega moisturizing during the service.
Manicures, $28–$68; pedicures, $38–$98
