Self-Care is So 2021

SELF-CARE is So 2021

Bubble baths and DIY mani/pedis are SO 2020. In 2021, spa days return with new meaning, and new locations. From the picture-perfect nail spots to alternative med spas, we have the best places to unwind, relax, and let Allen’s best massage, steam, or med spa pamper your stresses away. Gentlemen, we’ve got you covered too!

The Royal Treatment

Get off that zoom video, leave your work phone behind and make your way to Merum Face Bar at Watters Creek Village where a 10 -foot indoor water fountain drowns out the “noise” and soothes you into clarity. You’ll feel like you’re at the beach after strolling to the cabana area where an aromatherapy bar offers house-made body butters and sugar scrubs (all vegan and cruelty free!) to give you that model “glow.”

Or, check out the award winning Destiny Day Spa by Donyea where customers rave about the professionalism, experience and results. Brighten your day with 70 minutes of special exfoliation and LED light treatment that help fight signs of aging.


Looking for something a little less traditional but just as relaxing? Head over to Boho Alternative Med Spa and ask for the new Boho Ritual. This 24k gold sheet mask and gold elixir jelly massage is designed to make you feel like royalty (and clear your mind). While you’re there, check out the extensive menu of fillers, body sculpting, derma-planing and micro needling therapies to take your pampering to the next level.

Nail Boutique

You’ve tried traditional and alternative, now step up to the new upscale nail salon, Nail Boutique. Clear the afternoon because once you sink back into their massage chairs with a glass of your favorite wine, you will not want to get back up! Splurge on their Aloe & Honey mani/pedi for a milk bath foot soak, a 20-minute foot massage, and collagen socks that seal the deal (and the moisture).

Risk takers and trend setters will hit their stride at our next stop: Glee Nail Bar and Spa. Here, a team of experts are ready and willing to be as daring as you desire with unique nail colors and designs. Need more than just a getaway? We double dare you to try the Cloud 9 mani/pedi: a guava soy candle massage to ensure your skin can remain (or become) silky smooth. 

Queue the Hair Flip

Madison Reed Color Bar

Experience the full “Pink Carpet Treatment” and at Blo Blow Dry Bar in Watters Creek Village, where you can feel runway ready at a moment’s notice. No cuts, no color; just wash, blo and go! Make a day of getting all dolled up with a blow dry and full face make up service, hit the shops for a new outfit at any one of Watters Creek Village’s fashion boutiques, then meet up with the girls at Mi Cocina for drinks and dinner.

If your hair needs more than a touch-up, Madison Reed Color Bar has you covered. Also located at Watters Creek Village these expert stylists can give you the perfect color change or balayage style in no time. The feminine and modern décor, luxury hair color without harsh ingredients, and world-class service will make Madison Reed your #1 color bar!

Vacation Mode
Hand and stone

Whether you’re looking for a deep tissue massage to relieve stress and knots, or a classic Swedish massage to clear your mind and body after a long day of Zoom calls, Hand and Stone Massage and Facial Spa at The Village at Allen has you covered. From the personalized aromas to promote different moods, to the hot stones used to enhance relaxation and peace, you’ll end a soothing massage feeling like a new person.

The Ultimate Man Caves

Boardroom Salon for Men

Gentlemen, while the ladies are getting pampered, we’ve got a place or two for you to escape to as well. Boardroom Salon for Men at Watters Creek Village is more than your average barber shop; it’s an experience that combines style, relaxation and a man cave all in one. With dark wood paneling, a pool table, chess board and lounge area, the spa and shave services just seem like a plus. We’ve sent the ladies on a self care journey themselves, so stay as long as you need because the staff and customers will instantly become like family.

When you’re done, top off the night at Cigar Palace and Bar where you and the guys can indulge in premium flavored cigars and signature bourbons and cognacs on the all-weather terrace.
