Salon Review: Identity Salon & Day Spa
I strongly urge everyone to check this place out.
Though the primary stomping ground for Tylerites is obviously Tyler, when a good friend of mine recently purchased the Identity Day Spa & Salon in Lindale, I thought it would probably be worth the short drive north to check it out. I was so right. Truth be told, I am not the kind of girl who regularly treats myself to spa services. I’ll get a pedicure maybe once every few months, a manicure maybe once a year, and I’ve only ever had 3 massages in my whole life, but I am going to have to change this, as my experience at Identity was absolutely amazing from the moment I arrived until I left feeling totally rejuvenated.
Excited about my trip to Lindale, I decided to check out the website for Identity before I got there so I would have an idea what to expect. The impression I got about the spa from their website in no way prepared me for what I was in store for. When we first pulled up, I was immediately impressed by the tasteful brick facade of the Identity shopping center off Main Street, just north of Walmart. As we entered the salon and took in the foyer and the shelves of product lining the walls I was even more impressed. Identity carries all the salon brands you will find at any high end salon such as Redken, Bed Head, Thymes body products, and Bare Minerals cosmetics, just to name a few. In fact, Identity is the only retailer in Lindale who carries the Bare Minerals line. I was growing increasingly excited about my upcoming massage, so I was happy to be escorted to the women’s changing room where we were instructed to change into a robe then head into the lovely relaxation room to fill out a short information sheet and enjoy a mimosa while we waited for our massage therapists.
After a short wait the therapists came to get us, and we were led back to the massage rooms for our treatments. My therapist’s name was Sandy, and I thought she did an excellent job. She was very professional from beginning to end, and I never felt pressured to be chit chatty or do anything other than relax and enjoy. The hour passed quickly, and I was led back to the relaxation room for a spa lunch. I had chicken salad on a croissant with grapes and chips. They also offered a strawberry spinach salad which looked amazing.
I will definitely be going back to Identity in the future to try some of the other services they offer. We were interested in a facial, the exfoliating sugar body scrub, and eyelash extensions. Identity is a full service spa and salon, so in addition to the many spa treatments available, they also offer a full range of hair treatments as well as manicures, pedicures and waxing. They also have a cute gift shop with a variety of bath robes, body products, makeup bags, and other little gift items. I strongly urge everyone to check this place out. I would definitely recommend calling first to schedule an appointment, as we were also interested in a hair trim and a pedicure while we were there on Saturday, but they were all booked. Call Identity at (903) 882-0609 to schedule your appointment today!
