No one does beauty bigger than Big D, and arguably the city's mecca is the West Village neighborhood in Uptown.
From beauty stores to lash studios and award-winning salons, there's something to satisfy even the most ravenous of beauty junkies. Here are the spots to bookmark now (you can thank us later).
Amazing Lash Studio
They say time is the ultimate luxury, and Amazing Lash Studio puts this theory to the test, providing semi-permanent eyelash extensions that eliminate precious minutes from your morning makeup routine. Available in a range of styles — Gorgeous, Sexy, Cute, Natural, and New Volume — the eyelash extensions are lightweight, comfortable, and last for up to six weeks.
Avalon Salon and Spa
Avalon Salon and Spa is no stranger to accolades. It's been recognized dozens of times by local publications and has been featured in national industry magazines, including Elle, Harper's Bazaar, and Allure, which named it "Best Color Salon." The Aveda salon offers a variety of services, including special occasion styling, blowouts, botanical treatments, and, of course, colors and cuts.
BAM Beauty Bar
Social butterflies love BAM Beauty Bar for its bevy of award-winning blowout and makeup options. Blowout styles range from old Hollywood glam to beautiful beachy waves.

Brazil native Andrea Wissing founded Depil Brazil to bring the clean, fast hair-removal technique of her home country stateside.
