Urban Retreat

Where Houston's elite get beautified

Decades ago, a top Houston hairstylist (the sassy Lyndon Johnson, and yes, that was his real name) was quoted as saying that Texas women liked their hair “dyed, fried and shoved to the side.” Thankfully, Dallas hair has mostly gone by the wayside and Urban Retreat Day Spa & Salon is a favorite spot for the River Oaks set to have their glossy locks coiffed in sleek and contemporary styles. And that’s just the start. This chic salon is one-stop-shopping for full body pampering that includes a variety of soothing massages, manicures, pedicures, skin care treatments and a make-up artist to finish off your face after it’s been steam cleaned. Between treatments, there’s a relaxing solarium where you can curl up on a chaise longue wearing a plush terrycloth robe and order a light lunch to nibble on as you flip through the fashion magazines. If Lyndon is looking down from that big beauty parlor in the sky, he’s probably crowing "You’ve come a long way, baby!"
