Summer may officially be coming to an end, but sunny Austin feels the heat (almost) year-round. That said, us Austinites have a keen sense for seasonal staples. To round out these last couple months of summer, our founder is sharing her favorites. From sun hats to sunglasses, we’ve got you covered.
It’s been nearly a month since we re-launched our cult-favorite aluminum-free Deodorant in stick format with a new blend and three new strengths. The verdict is in: it really works. But don’t just take our word for it. We’ve rounded up Instagram mentions, feedback, and tips from early adopters. Scroll on to read the word on the streets (or should I say, the screens.)
Mark your calendars, haircare fans. All milk + honey locations are featuring a USmooth promotion for just one day this week.
All Austin locations will offer the promotion on August 1st and on August 2nd, the offer will go live at our River Oaks location in Houston. Stop by your nearest milk + honey to stock up on USmooth tools at 50% off.

“I’m happy to share that we are opening our first spa and salon in the Dallas/Fort Worth area, slated to open this winter. The newest location will be located in The Shops at Clearfork and will feature 14 treatment rooms, eight salon chairs, and four mani-pedi stations.
Over the years, we’ve been lucky enough to have thousands of Dallas/Fort Worth clients join us in Austin and Houston, so when the opportunity to expand into The Shops at Clearfork was presented to us, we knew it would be a great fit.
We’ll keep you updated as we near our opening date in Fort Worth. In the meantime, you can follow us at @milkandhoneyspa for sneak peeks along the way.
Thank you for your continued support!”

It’s that time of year again. Pool parties and beach vacays can often mean one thing: waxing bikini lines and beyond. Though many favor rocking body hair these days, (you’ve gotta do you!) we’re sharing some pro-tips to make the most of your next waxing appointment. We caught up with the ever-glowy (and incredibly kind) milk + honey esthetician, Jessica H., for her hair-removal best practices.
If you’re a KEVIN.MURPHY fan, SALON by milk + honey has your back this month. Until the end of July 2018, you’ll receive two minis when you purchase one full size Fresh.Hair, Doo.Over, or Bedroom.Hair at any of our locations. KEVIN.MURPHY minis are TSA-friendly and key for summer travels. (Not to mention, they’re adorable.) Stop by milk + honey to stock up on your favorites this month.
Everyone knows your skincare regimen needs a little TLC during the sunny, summer months, but have you ever considered your hair routine? Personally, I find myself stepping up my hair hydration game between May and Octoberish. (That’s summer when you live in Austin.) I prefer to let my hair air dry, but Texan summer heat + my natural waves = an often frizzy, not super chill look on my part. I’ve tried Lee From America’s famous #cocobun, of course, but I needed insider info. During a blowout at milk + honey, I found the answers c/o Kate Allen, a very knowledgeable stylist.
You asked, we listened. Our cult-favorite Cream Deodorant is now available in stick format. Created and tested in sunny Austin, Texas, our clean and cruelty-free deodorant will keep you feeling (and smelling) fresh all day long. The stick format isn’t the only exciting update from milk + honey HQ, though. Here’s what’s new.
We’re officially expanding our Arboretum Market location in order to offer the full, exceptional milk + honey spa experience and highest quality products to even more people in Austin.
We’re moving only a few doors down from our original salon into a 10,275 square foot space — making it our largest spa and salon yet. Designed by Baldridge Architects and slated for completion this winter, the location will feature 14 treatment rooms, eight salon chairs, and four manicure-and-pedicure stations. In addition to haircut and styling services, that means massage, body treatments, facials, waxing, peels, and natural nail therapy for our current Arboretum Market clients and the greater Northwest Austin area.
The current salon will be fully operational throughout the expansion process so it will not cause disruptions in the interim. We’re very excited to reveal the new space to you and will certainly keep you in the loop as we near the grand opening.
Whether it’s protecting against the harsher heat or showing off that new swimsuit, there are many reasons to bid adieu to dry skin and uncover your greatest glow this summer. We encourage creating a plan for healthy, hydrated skin with these three preliminary skincare tips.
