Perfect Image Salon, an Aveda Concept salon, is concerned with taking that extra step to ensure that patrons feel pampered and are able to decompress from the outside world. That's why guests sip cups of complimentary tea, infused with peppermint and licorice root, as they wait for a waxing service or settle in for a shampoo, conditioning, and stress-relieving Blue Oil neck massage. The salon's custom facials, which utilize Aveda's plant-based products, always begin with a footbath, and their makeup products are made from ingredients such as Brazilian nut-seed pigment, cinnamon from Madagascar, and the tears of ripe berries with pure hearts.
To make each experience truly relaxing, Perfect Image Salon lets guests pick a complimentary service to enjoy during their visits: a soothing neck and shoulder massage, a hand massage, an aromatic steam towel during their shampoo, or a makeup touch-up at the end of the reservation

K-Pak products assist hair owners in achieving high-end, healthy ’dos. Chosen as one of 2010’s Top 10 Hair Products by The View's Bryant Renfroe, the ReconstrRx VaporIron straightens or curls locks while simultaneously infusing them with ReconstRx VaporFuel (3.4 oz. bottle included), a protective elixir that decreases hair breakage, reduces color loss, and minimizes curl reversion—even after a long session of balloon rubs. The VaporIron also includes a step-by-step styling brochure and instructional DVD featuring one of Joico’s head honchos, Damien Carney.
Excentrix Salon & Spa’s team of aesthetic adjustors work with each client to create a personalized look with an array of hair and waxing services.

Though it's housed inside a red-brick building constructed in 1903, Salon Brandon Jay reflects modern fashion and the art-deco movement within its fuchsia walls. Owners Brandon and Anna Andrus embrace this merger of aesthetics, and line their stations with blocky, geometric chairs and nearly monochrome paintings. They and their staff flit around decorative plants and a glowing fish tank to administer cut and color services, such as layering tresses with foils for highlights, dying hair with Pureology and Logics products, and adding volume to fresh 'dos with blowouts rather than fragile toothpick scaffolding. They also coat nails in vibrant shades of OPI polish, and wax unwanted facial hair from lips, brows, and chins.
The stylists and nail technicians at New Reflections Salon operate on the premise that everyone deserves to feel beautiful. That’s why they don’t limit their menu of services to any one gender or age group—men, women, and children are equally welcome to sit down and relax amid the salon’s gauzy purple tapestries.
In addition to their basic hairstyling services, the staff waxes eyebrows and lips and further enhances complexions with natural mineral makeup. Not to be outdone by their counterparts, nail technicians tend to natural and acrylic nails with specialty treatments such as Shellac manicures and chocolate pedicures, the latter of which includes a chocolate body-butter foot massage and a soak in gooey fudge.
Behind almost any skincare product is a team of chemists in charge of testing and perfecting its delicate blend of ingredients. Rarely, though, do those chemists go on to create their own product lines. But that's just what Elina Fedotova did, turning her expertise as a cosmetic chemist, herbalist, and aesthetician towards crafting healthy and nurturing products. Her products are handmade with seasonal ingredients that nourish skin without the use of harmful chemicals or eye of newt. At her relaxing Chicago spa, stress disappears as guests sip herbal tea in the light-purple lobby. One of her clients' favorite treatments is the corrective herbal facial, which Chicago Magazine named the city's best in 2012.
The stylists, aestheticians, and massage therapists at Identities the Salon make sure clients look fabulous and feel relaxed from the top of their heads to the bottom of their feet. During hair services, the staff expertly crafts new looks with precision cuts, color, and texturizing services, which use products such as Matrix, Paul Mitchell, Redken, and Pureology. Custom facials slough away dead skin cells, and hot-stone massages melt tension with radiating waves of warmth. Pedicure recipients can confidently display their pampered toes, which wear coats of durable Shellac or OPI gel polish.
The skin-tinting specialists at Radiance Salon imbue epidermises with sun-smooched hues during VersaSpa tanning sessions. Within the elegant confines of the salon, guests linger shortly in the waiting area, adorned with deep violet cushioned chairs and fresh flowers, before an affable staff member ushers them to a private, stand-up VersaSpa booth. The formulated serum, infused with Helios’s lemonade recipe, splashes seamlessly across figures in 10 minutes or less. After the short session, the bronze finish blossoms to its full color within four to eight hours for a natural, beachified look.
The stylists at Universal Images Salon and Spa call on the likes of Matrix Biolage, Moroccanoil, Redken, and other professional-grade products to grant men and women's hair with flattering new looks.

Island Heat Tanning Spa earned a Kalamazoo Gazette Readers' Choice Award for its UV and spray tans—both of which are available at four intensity levels, for easy hue customization. Its VersaSpa sunless tanning formula has been featured on E's Sunset Tan, and bronzes physiques without leaving behind any telltale orange undertones. The spa's four UV tanning-bed styles, meanwhile, boast features such as built-in speakers and aromatherapy scents.
