Arlington City Guide
Beauty History of Arlington
Texas is one of the beauty centers of the USA, and beauty has been big business in Arlington since the first barbershops opened here when the town was young. The beauty industry has been a choice career for young women and men in Arlington for half a century – in 1973, Shelton Ogle, the founder of Ogle Schools, opened his second salon and his first beauty school in Arlington when he was just 23, seeing that the city had the potential to employ more trained beauty practitioners.
Beauty pageants have been at the glamorous heart of Texas culture since 1935, sending young girls and women on to success in national competitions, and sometimes to fame. (Did you know Eva Longoria and Phyllis George were former Miss Texas crown-wearers?)

Arlington Beauty Pageants & Events
Arlington is the proud home of the famous Miss Texas pageant, a preliminary heat for the nationwide Miss America competition. Other pageant companies also run local events, including Paramount Pageants, based in Arlington, who stage their American Baby Pageant and Texas Perfect Pageant, a pre-teen event described as a classic pageant meets America’s Next Top Model. And there’s the Dazzling Beauties State Pageant that comes to town once a year too.
But there’s much more to the Arlington beauty scene than pageants. With two convention centers, two modern stadium complexes and a wealth of hotels, Arlington is a convention destination of choice. You’ll find fashion shows like the Private Affair Fashion Show, beauty product expos, and wedding events like the Soiree Rangers Ballpark Bridal Show, held over 3 floors in the Rangers stadium, with product stands and bridal fashion shows on offer.
Arlington’s urban hustle is balanced by its beautiful open spaces; the city stands on a divide between rolling hills of oak woodlands and wide prairie views. There are a total of 82 public parks in the city to choose from, but the jewel in Arlington’s green crown is River Legacy Parks, an oasis of shady walks and wildlife. Make the most of the sunny climate with walking and paddling trails along rivers, lakes and wooded hills.
Arlington started out as a small farming community, but soon became a party town known for its saloons and horse races. In the ‘30s and ‘40s it was the country’s most notorious gambling destination, attracting the likes of Al Capone and Bonnie and Clyde. But these days Arlington is a sophisticated metropolitan centre, with a wealth of malls, fun parks and movie theatres.
Arlington is also home to the University of Texas at Arlington and the city’s fun-lovin’ student population means a college town atmosphere in the Downtown area of the city, with chic bars, great food at great prices, live music venues and clubs.
The Downtown area has been developed in recent years, with new shops and entertainment venues, and cultural events like the South Street Art Festival, a three-day event featuring over 75 artists, live music and food.
