Christina Jett

Christina Jett returns to Fort Worth as part
of the Restore + Revive Wellness Center

She once operated a successful cupcake food truck called Red Jett Sweets, one of Fort Worth’s early (and popular) food trucks. Today, Christina Jett eschews sugar for more healthy pursuits. A holistic licensed esthetician, Jett emphasizes a natural, restorative approach to skin care for clients of all ages, and especially welcomes those with maturing skin. Jett left Fort Worth and moved to Idaho in 2015. She learned about the Euro Institute of Skin Care in Washington state and enrolled, immersing herself in her studies. She eventually moved to Oklahoma City, launched Christina Jett Skin and practices inside Salt and Water, a shop dedicated to health, beauty and well-being. “I’ve built up a little following, and my plan was to be mobile. Fort Worth always is on my radar,” says Jett, 54, who is set up at the newly opened Restore + Revive Wellness Center founded by Dabney Poorter and Taylor Dukes. R+R’s services include IV therapy, ionic foot soaks, nutrition consultation, holistic body work, neuro integration and more. Membership and packages are available. Learn more about Restore + Revive on the website. Jett oversees skin care and will be in Fort Worth two weeks each month. “The beauty field is shifting, and I’m excited to be part of this group.” Look for customized products from Jett, as well as a healthy dose of education on how to read your own skin. Jett credits Fort Worth’s Kim Perrone of the Center for the Healing Arts for helping start this movement toward natural wellness. “I’m coming home a different person, and it’s nice to be back.” 5001 Byers Ave., Fort Worth, 817-720-6220, restoreandrevivefw.com.

Frenchie’s Modern Nail Care

This Colorado-based nail salon expands to Southlake with its clean beauty concept. The bright and airy studio is part of Frenchie’s green mantra. They are transparent about how they sterilize their stainless-steel tools (you can walk into their laundry room if you’d like), plus they use many products one time only, recycling what they can. Clients also are welcome to take home files and buffers used during their treatment. Foot-soak basins are freestanding with no jets to clog up and create unwanted bacteria. Frenchie’s offers a full menu of pedicures and manicures for men and women; there’s a Polish Pass if you’re a regular when it comes to self-care for your feet and hands. Products include two eco-friendly brands of polish. Frenchie’s also uses and sells the Spinster Sisters Co. line of all-natural scrubs, lotions and body butters. (We like the fresh scent of lemongrass-sage.) 1560 E. Southlake Blvd., 817-203-7221, frenchiesnails.com. — MK

The Sanctuary Yoga Room: New year, new direction

Fort Worth’s Sanctuary Yoga Room closes the doors on its Clearfork location Feb. 15 after a five-year run by owner/instructor Rebecca Butler. She will continue to offer classes at the Sanctuary studio on Hulen Street, which opened two years ago in the same location where Butler was the founding teacher at Karmony Yoga in 2010. And instead of a hot studio, Butler says, the temperature in daily classes will average around 78 to 88 degrees. Look for classes from early morning into the evening for beginner to advanced skill levels.

Nanda Yoga: Calling all kids (and babies, too)

Kate Garrett Murphy is all about helping kids slow down. The owner of a Fort Worth yoga studio for children, opening in late February, develops classes allowing clients from ages 6 weeks through their teens to stretch out, breathe deep and play — mindfully. Murphy, a Fort Worth native, graduated from the University of Texas at Austin in 2007 with a degree in early childhood education, then joined Cook Children’s Medical Center in Fort Worth as a child life specialist. Now she merges her pediatric experience, yoga training and motherhood (she has two young sons) to launch the studio where even infants can attend (parent-child classes). Other child-only sessions are tailored for specific age groups. Overarching goals include positive self-esteem. Expect seasonal camps and kids nights out, workshops and more. Follow on social media @nandayogafw or visit the website for more information. The Collective, 3608 Pershing Ave., Fort Worth, 512-762-1527, nandayogafw.com. — Babs Rodriguez

Classes are aimed at kids to benefit the body and help build confidence.
