Inspired by her passion for creating positive changes in people’s lives, Beyond Beauté’s founder and CEO, Shirley Terry-Lopez, began her beauty career as an image consultant and make-up artist in 1983.
In 1986, Shirley opened a 1,200-square-foot facial salon in Deer Park, Texas, named Beyond Beauté Skin Care. She was not only the sole skin care specialist for two years, but the sole employee, and partnered with local dermatologists to help clear up various skin challenges.
Shirley’s passion for health and wellness led her to study the science of longevity and diseases relating to stress, and she soon discovered how valuable the power of touch was in reducing those stressors, improving the quality of life. Over the next few years, she researched how the European spas used the holistic approach, such as massage and body treatments with natural seaweed and various minerals from earth and sea to strengthen the body’s immune systems. It was then that she decided to offer these wellness services to the everyday man or woman, so they could achieve wellness daily, or as often as needed. Shirley began adding qualified technicians who shared the same vision of creating a place where guests could come and be rejuvenated. In 1991, she opened her second location in the Clear Lake area, and changed the name to Beyond Beauté Day Spa and Wellness Retreat.
Today, after 25 years, and still in love with the science of creating wellness and beautiful skin, her spas support a staff of more than 50 long-term employees. It’s this same passion that has allowed her to become a popular guest speaker on the art of skin care for various companies throughout the United States and England, and share her gifts with various charities, women’s shelters and non-profit organizations throughout Texas.
Perhaps her continued success can be attributed to her motto, “If you enjoy creating a positive change in someone’s life, start with your own. Embrace your passion and practice living your life as if it was your last day on earth.”
Beyond Beauté is dedicated to maintaining a culture that is actively focused on helping others achieve a more fulfilled life.
