Houston has some incredible spas in their own right and some amazing black-owned businesses: so it’s no surprise that the gap in the market for black-owned spas in Houston has been filled and should be supported.
So if, like me, you love a good pamper session and want to support black-owned businesses, this is the guide for you.
I will give you an overview of what to expect when entering the spa, from the general ambiance to the services they provide. I will also recommend the products they stock and some of the best treatments they can provide to suit all budgets.
List of The Best Black-Owned Massage Spas in Houston
Throughout this guide, I have tried to highlight some of my favorite black owned spas in Houston to help you decide where to head for your next me day.
So let’s take a look at what I deem to be some of the best black-owned massage spas in Houston!
1. The Butter Bar Skin Care
|Address||10142 Jones Rd b7, Houston, TX 77065|
|Opening Times||Sunday to Friday 10 am - 6 pm,
Kimberly-Chloe Wilson created the Butter Bar Skin Care spa in North Houston with the help of her husband, Rasheem. Kimberly-Chloe wanted to find a way to develop products using natural ingredients for women of color suffering from hyperpigmentation.
As a result, all of the products used within the spa are handmade by a small team who are against the use of unnecessary synthetics.
The spa offers facials, detox wraps, vacuum therapy, skin tightening procedures, waxing, massages, and laser treatments for both men and women. In addition, these packages are available here, as well as mommy and teen packages, which are just a delightful way to spend quality time with your teenager away from screens and other distractions.
You can order The Butter Bar Skin Care product range online, which can be shipped worldwide. The team here also offers virtual skin consultations for people who aren’t local to Houston.
In addition, the website is sectioned by skin type rather than product type, which is highly user-friendly, especially when starting a new skincare routine.
Not only do I love what this spa stands for regarding the use of ingredients, but it is also fantastic to support small businesses, especially when a mom created them from her kitchen table.
